The 40 Year Old Vegan?

I made the mistake of watching a bunch of YouTube videos of dogs and cows that are best friends. Now I feel kinda bad about eating cows. David Attenborough also says I can help biodiversity by eating less meat. Dang it. But it's so delicious.

My foot is injured and I can't treadmill walk right now. That's also had some influence on my thinking. I am rapidly gaining back the weight I've managed to lose over the past 4 years and while I refuse to limit my portions, perhaps gorging myself on plant products will help.

I should probably see a doctor about this foot and see if there's anything they can inject me with to speed up the process. Yeah, better living through chemistry.

I have a week of vacation coming up. Pretty exciting. Maybe I'll do some spring cleaning and get rid of a bunch of stuff that I haven't used in years.

My foot hurts. A lot. Finally, an excuse to use a cane!

Here I go for four whole minutes! What the heck have I been doing? I don't know!

Friends are coming into town so I'm excited about that. Bun-Bun seems happy and healthy on her treatment, so hooray!

I'v been playing Elden Ring, which I am enjoying. I was on the fence for a while. It's bizarre enough to satisfy my Eldritch horror itch.

Not much else really. My heel hurts a lot more than usual from walking. Might have to start icing it. 

To the Icery!

 Bun-Bun is home and feeling good! She's got Addison's Disease, so we are very relieved. Pretty easy to treat...not the cheapest, but she's worth it. 

I've been letting her sleep on the bed.

Bun-Bun isn't feeling well. She's at the vet getting IV fluids right now. Looks like renal problems. I like this vet. They are going to do some blood work and see if her levels stabilize. I feel like she's in good hands right now. 

I hope to know more soon.

What's the world coming to? I've been in the same line of work for 9 years. How interesting. It's kinda nice to be really good at something. It's still work, but at least I know enough about how to do everything that it isn't particularly stressful beyond the sheer quantity of it.

I got my Covid booster and my flu shot. ON THE SAME DAY. That's how hardcore I am. I felt fine, although the booster arm was a little sore, and then the lymph nodes in the armpit were also tender the next day. 

Oh yeah, I made hummus. It was really good. More importantly, there was a lot of it. I like hummus a lot, but it's expensive and I never get to eat as much as I want. Solution: Make it my dang self. Now I have a whole tub of hummus for roughly 12 bucks worth of ingredients. No more of this 7 dollars for 8 oz or whatever. I'm going to be grubbing on hummus 24-7. 

Now to learn how to make tahini...maybe naan.

 I took what I thought was a compromise nap yesterday afternoon. I propped myself up on the couch with Mabel and Bun-Bun and let myself drift in and out of consciousness. It certainly didn't feel like actual sleeping. Still, this hour-or-so of half-assed nappery [Ed. note: antiquated word that has nothing to do with naps] was enough to keep me awake until 1 am.  I went to bed at 10:30 to try to get decent sleep. What a foolish fool I was. 

I listened to a few excellent ghost stories while I waited to feel sleepy. I'm pretty happy about those. And I don't feel terrible today, not now, not yet. 

I'll just go through today and pretend I got real sleep and maybe that will work. I'll shoot for 10:30 pm again tonight.
