Uh, I'm still alive.  
Whew, it's been a long time without a post. Unfortunately, my battle with unexplained kidney stones goes onwards, so I've spent a lot of time in the tub and in bed instead of writing. Not that I need to be writing, I just like to be. But I'm still fiddling away with things, so hopefully, a story will come at some point, even if it's just original fic I'm playing around with.

In brighter news, I have lost a bunch of weight since I changed my diet back in July. All healthily and carefully and necessary. I have PCOS, which makes me prone to gaining weight and is benefitted by the loss of it. So, I'm working away and it's going well and hasn't been too hard or unenjoyable.

If anyone is interested, the Mediterranean diet was recommended by a few health officials to me and/or family members, and so far has been working great for us. It's not very strict and gives you lots of options. Even with my tomato allergy, I've found lots to eat that fit the bill.

And it cute news, we bought a new living room chair back in the Fall and Ascii has claimed it in the Name of Scotties, and it hilariously big for how small she is, but that does not stop her from being important on it: (click to embiggen)

Hope everyone else is functioning to their best abilities! Remember to be kind to yourselves! Everyone keeps reminding me of this, so I will pass along the message.

If you can believe it, all that adorableness is from only one Scottie. We only have the one right now, but she is all we need. I think she's happier as an only dog, to be honest.

I'm sorry you've had such a rough time of it! Good for you to lose that weight.

I'm not sure about "functioning to their best abilities"—I think I'm settling for "functioning" right now! I need to post too., Much work.

Thank you!

If all you can do is function right now, that's the best of your abilities at the moment and that's okay. You're still doing the best you can.

Sorry to hear about continuing health woes. But hooray for eating more healthily!

And just in case you needed a 6th opinion on it: your dog is adorable!
