Maybe you should see a doctor? That isn't like you at all...

The dive of 1.5+kg in my weight over the last three weeks or do seems to be flattening out. Appetite still not exactly brilliant but compensating with high-grade protein, veg/fruit and reasonably fibrous bread. No pasta or spuds.

Levelling out under 62kg. Weight range for my shortness is 42 - 64kg, previous weekly averages around 63.3kg.

For some reason, though I go for strong flavours mostly,  I am right off the chillis and spices I ate almost daily before.
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Last night during a bout of insomnia, I decided to investigate the rumors that you could add the Google Play Store to an Amazon Fire tablet. Since I only paid $40 (US) for it, I didn't have much to lose if it got bricked. I bought it on a whim and discovered that it was so Amazon-centric as to be almost useless for anything not directly connected to Amazon.

So after a bit of research, it turns out that you can add the Google Play Store to an Amazon Fire tablet. No hacking or jail-breaking required. All it requires is downloading and installing four files and ta-da, within minutes, you have access to the Google Play Store! So, I've turned a device whose main purpose was to get me to consume Amazon media into a useful, inexpensive tablet with access to all my favorite apps. Plus, having a 7-inch screen, it is both easy to carry around (unlike my 10 times more expensive 10-inch tablet) and easy to read the screen (unlike my 5-inch cell phone screen).

My mother is driving again (after breaking her leg)!  :dance:

My sister and I were doing the driving for her. I don't mind driving and taking her to where she needs to go, but at times it can be difficult to juggle all the tasks I'm supposed to complete in addition to being the chauffeur.

Was this after you told them you were leaving or just coincidental? Good reason to stay put?

Sounds good though.

Coincidental, I think.

That is good news. Even better that it was not in response to a threat to leave.

WOW!!!! Excellent news.
