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