It's been over a week

So I know I posted about growing my nails out.  Well,  I bit them all off again shortly after that posting.  Nerves.  Sleepiness.  Idk.

But I'm happy to report that I have not bitten my nails in a little over a week.  I bought some other "help grow nails" stuff that you slather on twice a day (at least) that I paint on when I'm feeling an urge to pick or Bite. 

And today they were long enough to use a file on to even out. 

Yay me!!!

I'm hoping in another week,  with the growing nails stuff I have,  I may actually be able to paint them again.

It's been a rough day

I found out late last night that a dear friend is suffering poor health and may not live long.  He's younger than I. I've known him since around 1996, so almost 20 years.  I am devastated.

Also today was the funeral of the baby sister of a friend I've known since 2 nd grade (off and on). She was 34 and mother of 4 girls,  all under 10. My heart aches for that family.  If I lost my baby sister (who is close to the same age) I would be inconsolable.

I've been crying off and on all night and day. 

I'm really afraid I might slip into a dark place emotionally.  I didn't expect the funeral to hit me so hard. All I can do is hope for the best.  And remember to take my happy pills.

Praline bacon

Ran across this recipe on Facebook and decided to give it a try.  I'll post the original source later,  but essentially it was just Brown sugar and pecans pulsed into a fine grind then pressed into raw bacon. On both sides.  Lay the bacon on a rack on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 until the sugar caramelizes. For us that was 20 minutes.

We also cooked regular bacon just in case and had it with an omelet. 

So yummy!!!!!

Mini vacation

Mom surprised us with a paid night at a local 4 star hotel.  It ended up being a place in Dearborn I've wanted to stay at since FOREVER! had a wonderful relaxing time.  Here are some pictures of the event.
