Finally able to post, though I've no idea how this will look because the font size won't change and it looks enormous. I don't care- I can post! All it took was dropping the new editor and going back to the old editor, as I saw other bloggers suggest.
Today is a day of many things. It's Gary's 5th Blogaversary Party over at Lawless' house:
It's Mardi Gras everywhere, so eat up all the meat and get those pancakes on the griddle
It's Day 50 of the Operation Greg Diet, which means I can eat off-plan. So I have. Bread! Though it's laying in my stomach like a lead zeppelin, it was nice to have a sandwich. The effects are such that I won't have an issue with being back on-plan tomorrow. In fact, I may go back on plan right now. It's recommended to break a diet every 7 weeks for a full day, to reset your system so you don't get stuck on a plateau. Eat how you did before the diet, eat things you haven't eaten since starting the diet, etc. Though I broke the diet for Special K's birthday, and indulged in a little dark chocolate a few days ago, I've been on-plan for a long time now. Once you've cleared your house of the inedibles and just don't have them around, it's pretty simple to get used to eating differently. Then when you start feeling and looking better, you don't want to go backwards. So though it was nice to have a sandwich and I'm sure it's changing up my system (judging by my unhappy tummy), I'll be glad to get back to normal. The new normal, that is.
And as for the Beest's neurotic scratching, the vet said she'll give her a shot if necessary, but she wants me to groom her a lot first and give her cod liver oil. It's true, Hildebeest has been shedding like crazy. Every time I comb her, handfuls of fuzz come off. It seems winter coats weren't necessary this year and so there's a whole lotta shedding going on. I could spend the entire day grooming her and still get more fur. She's been beside me on her shelf all day today, I must've combed her a dozen times. Every time she's looked like she was gonna start in, I've gone over her. So far, so good. Though she looks a bit lost and puzzled.
Well, I'm heading back to the party. Come join us and wish Gary a Happy!
The Door Is Ajar.
