    Wondering if @cwolfman13 survived the thirst and colonoscopy.

    Happy to see @KosmosKitten back.

    A little worried about the newbies who get so down about not being able to stick to their goals.

    And gassy!

    @glassyo I did. It actually all worked out pretty well because they had to move my appointment up from noon to 8 AM with a checking of 7 AM so I was sleeping for most of the time I wasn't allowed any liquids at all. I was up until around 1 AM before things settled down enough for me to sleep...so I got a good 5 hrs and got up just in time to take a quick shower and head to the hospital.

    All in all, it wasn't that bad. I went through a lot of bouillon which helped satisfy my hunger for something savory. I ate a lot of gelatin which was ok...I don't remember the last time I had gelatin, and it will likely be a very long time before I have it again. My laxatives were all over the counter which I think must be more gentle on the stomach...some of my friends had to take a prescription and they just kept telling me how horrible it was on the gut. Not something I'm particularly eager to sign on for again anytime soon, but not a huge deal either.

    Mildly concerned at this dry cough I've developed? Admittedly, it's very dry, windy and chill here. The breeze blows strongly off the river front and leads to some gale-type weather a lot. However, the last week or so, I've developed this mildly irritating dry cough and I am unsure if it's a symptom of a minor infection (cold, Covid, etc.) or just a result of the very, very dry air and the fact that I really thrive more in humid climates?

    For what it's worth, I have no other symptoms that I can find. No fatigue (outside of general sleep deprivation), no terrible sinus issues (for once!) and nothing else that marks it as concerning. It's just.. irritating. Seems a bit worse when I lay down.

    @cwolfman13 Good to hear! Also probably a good thing you didn't want tips. You don't want to know what happened to the last person I discussed colonoscopies with.

    I'm having fantasies about just up and quitting my job. I can't. I need the medical insurance and the paycheck but, even tho I complain about my boss here a lot, I also defend him and I'm starting to feel like I'm in a domestic violence situation, you know. (NOT A LITERAL ONE.)

    I thought I was keeping up with something but apparently not and now, yet again, he's mad and sometimes I think he wants me to quit instead of firing me. Or, as he says it, you fire yourself. And there's no defending myself because he's grumpier than normal and I still, apparently can't do anything right anymore.

    This thread as therapy, huh?

    I am equal parts bored yet happy. Seems weird right?

    Walking out to the kitchen as I was waking up this morning and flipping the on button for my coffee, I found myself feeling pretty dang content. Thinking of all I had to do today and coming up empty, I thought hey I only have to do what *I* want to do. That can be a very content and freeing feeling.

    Here's hoping everyone has a content freeing day. :)

    Sore in pain and just want a long massage to ease it 😣 or a really good distraction that makes me laugh? 😃

    Frustrated. Not everything needs to be run by committee. Not everything needs it's own meeting. More people aren't always the answer.

    I'll give you a massage! And if I do a bad job then maybe that will be funny enough to make you laugh?

    I'm feeling like I was today year's old when I found out if I waved my hand over my phone all graceful and magician-like, that it would magically turn on and show me the time. :)

    I have "decision paralysis" - trying to chose everything for the bathroom is driving me nuts. I want someone to give me 3 options and not 80,000,000 options.

    @RAinWA Are you having your bathroom redone?? That's exciting.

    But yes, making a choice can be daunting. TBH I left some choices up to our contractor and my dh. :( I have no taste. I wish my youngest dd had been here; she works in Seattle as an industrial designer and has always put things together so well. She must be adopted because my design genes are sorely lacking.

    Maybe you'll share pictures when it's done? Good luck with it. :)

    Hope you're doing well; you've been on my mind.

    Feeling super fat and frumpy. Clothes don’t fit but I’ve lost all motivation to get going and even if I do manage something I can’t stay consistent, so no results… leads me to over eat. And over eating is just something I do every day, especially at night.

    I will definitely share pics when it's done. It's a wreck right now. Had a major flood in there in early November and I'm tired of it being torn apart. I am excited to get it done, partly because I'm tired of brushing my teeth in the kitchen! But it's been hard to get things done when I've had a lot of other stuff to deal with. I'm close to Seattle, maybe I should borrow your daughter! :D

    I am doing well, some days are good and some not so good. Being alone is a strange experience for me after 30 years but I'm adjusting. Thanks you for asking, you are a sweetheart.

    Driven to madness. As of late in general, not just right this minute. Been alone for a straight month now with no meaningful human interaction. Starting to long for familiar places and faces, and some in-person human interaction. No, this has nothing to do with covid social distancing.

    Feeling good. Second day of working out. A little achy but proud o got straight into it today. Tidied the house, went to the shops and now chilling.

    Feeling apprehensive about a job change that’s coming in 10 days, and now also melancholic and wistful and nostalgic because earlier I was feeling bored and lonely, which somehow led me to randomly read private messages here from 3.5 years ago, a whole novel worth of them between me and someone who’s been one of the most important people in my life since then. That reading got me reflecting on all the evolutions our relationship has gone through in those years and all the things we’ve helped each other through and it’s all a huge emotional roller coaster.

    Feeling a little.....I don't know. :/ DH wants to do lunch sometime this week and, partly because of calorie counting and I just wanna do my own thing, I'm feeling.....cornered? Obligated? I don't want to go out, spend too much money on too many calories that I won't enjoy because it'll be my 1 meal for the day, in public which I don't like either. I'm going to try and talk him into breakfast so I can just indulge in a good coffee and call it good. :) So maybe in the end I'm feeling selfish. :(

    Don't hide how you're feeling about it! If this person cares about you they need to know how you feel about going out to eat!
