Not the girls. Not this time.
This time I refer to my mouth. I went to the dentist for my follow up and now, in addition to infant foods like yogurt and soft noodles and mashed avocado or banana, I have graduated to toddler-type foods like bits of meat cut up small and grapes and other foods that are soft-ish or can be cooked to make them so.
I was spending way too much time thinking about food. Partly this is because I have issues with food anyway, but partly it was even more restrictions on my usual choices. And I'm mildly allergic to cows' milk so a diet primarily consisting of dairy is not so good. I still have some obvious restrictions - nothing crunchy or chewy, carbonated or drunk through a straw - and I'm still tiring easily and should "take it easy", but otherwise I'm pretty much Back to Normal. You can tell because the dentist and I had a fun little chat wherein I taught him the English phrase "Leave well enough alone". If I'm doing that I must be feeling better in spite of the fatigue.
This is a Good Thing, because it's my final week of the first... (does one call it a "quarter" when it's only nine weeks long?)... session at school. Between my final papers for two classes and job hunting and (reluctant) housekeeping, I don't have time to think about what I'm going to cook! We have a Brownie Scout meeting and I want to schedule a massage 'cause I really need one and... <takes a deep breath>. Don't know how much I'll be posting either. So wish me luck on my finals, and I'll catch you on the flip side.
