In Celebration. Or Memorium. I Don't Know.

Well, well, well. This is post number 399. Happy Feet Friday will be post number 400, unless I get a wild hair. (I always have wild hair. Hmm...) And in celebration of 4,200 profile views and 2,000 page views, I'm going to tell you some choice facts about my life.

I have lost 15 lbs. in the last four months and have kept it off.

I have been sober for 2 years, 7 months and 5 days. And some days, I still wish I could drink.

I have nothing in my refrigerator right now except for a pitcher full of water, a small bottle of Gatorade, half a bag of shredded cheese and a mostly-empty tub of Country Crock. I have not cooked anything in three weeks because right now? The thought of going to the grocery store just wears me out.

I started packing for my vacation yesterday and so far, I have 10 pairs of pants, all the underwear and bras I own, a fleece jacket and a wool sweater, one t-shirt and three pairs of socks in my bag. I think I need more shirts.

I can wash my clothes, dry them and fold them, but I am completely unmotivated to put them away. I live out of laundry baskets.

One of the guys at swing dance lessons tonight had on horrid cologne and even though I have taken a shower, I can still smell it. I don't want him to touch me ever again. That will not happen. He always comes.I'm pretty sure this graphic sums up how I feel about the world on any given day.

I have not thrown up in the morning since a week ago Monday.

I only sleep through the night if I take massive amounts of medication or have kangaroo care. For me, naked on naked full body contact does the same thing as sleeping pills. I would like to market that somehow.

I hate rhubarb sauce.

And mushrooms.

It's a texture thing.

That is all. I'm waiting for the South Dakota Public Health Bulletin. It should come any day now. I finished the July issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association today. I am a lay person with too much curiosity. My curiosity will kill me someday. Of that I am certain.

Congrats on 399 posts! And on the weight loss! And on the sobriety! And on not barfing! So much to celebrate!

Does the fifteen pounds of weight loss have anything to do with the empty refrigerator?

It sounds to me like you should just throw a couple of laundry baskets in the car and then you're done with packing, no?

So many reasons to celebrate. Congrats!

And when the idea of grocery shopping wears me out, I just order groceries online. Yep: sometimes I grocery shop from my couch.

Psst. You might want to rewrite those two sentences or someone will say:

Coming soon! To a street corner near you!

Not me, mind you. I would never do such a thing.

Definitely reasons to celebrate!

Hm, how could you tell cologne man you can smell him across the room? Maybe ask another man to tell him to minimize the embarrassment? Or would that make it worse?

Love the poster.

Congrats on 399 posts. And all the other stuff too, especially the 2 years, 7 months, and 5 days part.

Oh, for marketing the naked full body on body contact thing? That's been done before, and I'm pretty sure it's illegal to sell that in most states. Sorry. :)

Have a great vacation.

Wow,399! Do your thing, Kate! You do it so well. ;)

I live out of laundry baskets, too, only I don't fold it.
