T told me to email her this week after I'd requested info about a grad program (she wanted to make sure I followed through lol). So i just emailed her what I found out yesterday about getting my cumulative undergrad GPA up to 3.0 before I apply. I wonder if she'll respond or not or even remember telling me to email her. Hmm. Time will tell.

When you weren't here I missed having updates about your cooking. You would have been the first person I was going to ask - oh what to do with my limpy tomatoes?
Anytime my h's cherry tomatos got all wrinkly I would blanch them and then add to my lentils. Yum.
Oh I haven't done the Brussels sprouts yet. Tomorrow cuz I'm off work again. Had to use up pto or lose it.

It will be hard but perhaps change your routine? Don't turn on the TV at all or just the news channels, no newspapers either. I have this program on my laptop called coldturkey which basically will block set websites for a period of time.

I haven't tried either but perhaps try both and see which one suits you better?

Una it's honestly posssible.The hardest thing is thinking of it as a whole set which can get intimidating. Break it down into small bites (see what I did there ) and aim for 1 pound or even half a pound a week.All progress is progress! No point in being soooo strict if your can't stick to it for more than 3 days.

To infinity and PARADIGM shift! (Okay I'll stop drinking now).

I'm sorry the past few days have been so rough for you LT.
