Mastodon Monday evening —

Monday evening

We have adopted Owen! We had a long and VERY THOROUGH phone interview today, his adoption coordinator checked our personal references, we signed the lengthy contract and paid the fees. He will travel by air-conditioned truck, with personal attendants and a load of other adoptees, all the way from Texas to join us on June 3rd.

Pixelfed embeds seem no longer to work. Sigh.

In other news, I drove today for the first time since hospital. Went to Roake’s, a nearby hot dog stand that has been here since 1937. I’m not wasting any more time getting around to trying out some cool Portland spots! I got the Short Dog with mustard, relish, and kraut. Delicious and flavorful, on a soft white bun. No gourmet vegan sprouted spelt flour here — good old fashioned satisfying hot dogs. The Short Dog was just the right amount of food, along with a small coffee shake from nearby Burgerville. (Roake’s shake machine is broken)

Gained 2 pounds overnight, grr. Too much fluid! So I took one of the special high-powered diuretics that I can have once a week. Been peeing all day lol. I’m still uncomfortably full-feeling but I was able to eat a bit more at each meal today.

    I haven’t had a hot dog in a million years. If you’re still feeling well enough when I come, let’s go get one.

    Heck yeah, as long as you aren’t expecting Fanciness! And if I don’t feel well enough to go out, you can bring one to me :)

    Sounds like a plan!
