Helllllllloooooo and Happy Mondayyyyyyy! I really liked my 3 day weekend. It was just what the doctor ordered. I was busy for all of it but actually felt disconnected from work (even though I still logged a lot of hours) for the first time in 6 weeks. Our team should be (mostly) fully staffed today for the first time in ages today. I mean, no one is trained or helpful yet, and I already got a call out for a sick day, but it makes me hopeful, nonetheless.

QOTD: Do you send food back at a restaurant if it is bad? I grew up with a mom who would have choked down raw chicken rather than complain... but she has gotten a lot saltier in her old age and the last 3 times we went out she complained and sent things back. Yesterday she refused to even pay! I was a little horrified. I mean, she is right to demand a decent meal (and this was definitely not decent) but I couldn't do it. I am too polite to ever complain. But maybe I will turn into her in 23 years...!

Food choices were meh this weekend. I didn't bother making a plan either day and I ate some cookies I made for a dinner with friends but I am still not hungry too often (so weird) so I am not having the volume of food I was which is helping calories stay low, even when choices are not the best.

I am convinced that when you send food back to the kitchen, they spit in it or do something else nasty to it. I am sure I got that notion from watching movies. I would never send something back. I would just eat what I could of it and not go back to that place again.

I remember complaining once when my plate of spaghetti had some of the wire bread fasteners that were wrapped in red paper embedded in the plate of spaghetti. I complained when I found one in my mouth.

The waitress just shrugged her shoulders and said that the bread was stored on a shelf above the warming rack and the wire ties must have fallen into the plate. That joint had really good spaghetti, but I did not go back.

Good mornin everyone.

It was a ****ty weekend for me. Something broke on my denture Saturday and it sent me into a tailspin. It's easily fixed(I have an appointment this morning) but it was the straw that broke the camel's back. I went to my room and sobbed into my pillow for well over an hour.

I've also been having an issue with my pouch. Anything dense is making me feel like I need to throw up. It only takes a few bites of dense food and it's like bam! So I'm doing a few days of mostly liquid. It's been going on since Friday.

Still waiting for the approval of the myelography. The pain is wearing me down a great deal both physically and mentally.

QOTD: I never go out to eat really. I've never sent any food back when I do though.

Thank you! It's embarrassing to say I have one but it is what it is. Years of dry mouth took its toll along with genetics.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

I am glad you found the cause of the issue, but I am so sorry that it is environmental. I truly can't imagine how terrible it feels to be in smokey air all day!
