Why yes, that is her butt(hole). How perceptive of you to notice... :P
(This particular cat has just gotten over a bout of diarrhea. So, admittedly, we've been talking about her poop more than we would normally.)
Each year is getting better with gardening. Andrew keeps mentioning the idea of doing a second box somewhere else, and I think I might actually take him up on the idea. The kids love helping, too... and eating the fruits of our labor, of course!
Day 3 of eliminating dairy from my diet (on a trial basis to see if it helps Elliot). Hungry ALL. THE. TIME.
Technically we're waiting on blood test results, but I figured I would get a jump on the possibility that it's a casein allergy/sensitivity. Didn't realize (a) just how hard it would be and (b) it can take up to 3 WEEKS for all the offending proteins to leave mom's system.
To make matters worse, it's the Christmas season. There are goodies and parties, and hardly anything I'm allowed to eat. Bringing fruit and hummus (for dipping veggies) to our Tuesday morning gathering... I think there will be a salad too. That's it for me - no cookies, no quiche, nothing with chocolate or cheese or butter.
