Ever since I returned from the nursing home, I have lagged behind.  Not only have I been slow, filled with an unfathomable ennui, but graced with constant mild nausea.  I ate, I got ill.  The last few days, I didn’t just get sick, I fell asleep.  Continually.

Instead of bringing me my usual Weight Watchers breakfast yesterday, The Great Geezer brought me bread and butter.  I felt really good.  Revitalized.  I walked to the library only stopping twice.  I took a jaunt to the store to get more pictures for our Facebook page, then I came home and redesigned the living room.  Not a nap in sight. 

No yogurt or even cereal with rice milk for breakfast.  I took one Tylenol with my bread.  No commercial anything for lunch.  Just bread and butter.  Baked potato for dinner.  Simple stuff. 

I will try bread and butter for a week, plus or minus, and see how I feel.  I’ve been allergy reaction free for so long that I’d almost forgotten my food allergies…except for the eggs.  I’ve been reaction free for so long that even G doesn’t recognize them.

Life is Really in the Footnotes:
  He’s also begun a blog here on Blogger.  He had a really busy day at work, helped me with the heavy stuff in the living room, and enjoyed both NCIS’s.
  • Herself:  Became aware that the new sofa is about one and a half feet longer than the old one.  It was a little like shoe horning everything in to make the room work.  No more dining room table as we never used it.  Now the drawing board is in the dining space, and we have room to live.
  • Reading:  Finished an old Cadell.
  • Balance:  Relaxed in the new living room.


    1. So, you feel better on a prison diet...good for you! We all should do that once in a while.

    2. Me too. Ennui. Two or three naps a day. I started thinking I might be spiking my blood glucose. I still don't know, but I have an annual physical at the end of the month. I still think I have issues from the cyst that abscessed last month.

    3. I am glad to hear you are feeling more energetic. Must be the bread and butter. Lol.

    4. Bread and butter - the staples of life! You go!

    5. I think the nursing home/rehab is a bad thing...germs, depressing and too much lying around. I am happy I skipped it. I too have had mild nausea and am now off Vicodin and on Tylenol.

      Wrote you a long response to the health care thing on my post Looks like CA has the exchange thing for the ACA working well if we are to believe reports here. Jerry Brown for president?

      I too am eating simply so I can simply eat. Bread and butter...staff of life.

    6. So good to read that you are feeling better and more wide-awake. Enjoy that bread and butter!

    7. Keep trying to figure it out. Sounds like you might be on to something.

      RYN on my feminism post - loved it. :)

    8. So glad you found a solution to the way you were feeling. I hope it continues to work.

    9. A relative's battle with food allergies was epic. Hope you will be able to gradually add in more foods that treat you well!


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
