Sleep was much better last night - fell asleep close to 9:30, woke once to check the time, at 3:19, and didn't twitch again until 5:22. That's quality sleep. 

A much less stressful day yesterday - our dog is not terminal and does not appear to be suffering from any new chronic conditions. He's probably over-medicated for his Cushing's disease, so we've stopped his pill for a couple of days and will resume at half the dose. He's eating again, and now that we've belled him and sprinkled him with oil of peppermint, the fights between the dogs seem to have dwindled - none last night at all. So that's good. And we found out that our carpet pad in the living room was impermeable on top, so that we won't have to do excessive stuff to get rid of the cat pee smell on the floor before installing new carpet. We also got the sofa taken apart - it's 2 pieces of a sectional, and neither of us was quite certain about how it was attached when we put it together a while back. And found that the two of us can move each of the pieces by itself - the whole sofa is very heavy and I was a bit worried about getting it moved for carpet replacement, not to mention for moving.

160.4 again this morning, not entirely sure why, but I'll blame the sauerkraut salt (why not?). Here's yesterday:
  • tea with cream
  • lemon water with gelatin
  • the usual supplements
  • scrambled eggs
  • bacon
  • string cheese
  • strawberries (about 1/2 pound)
  • hot dogs (3) with mustard
  • sauerkraut - rather a lot, because I underestimated the amount in the original container and, well, it's a long story
  • a few potato chips
  • a Haagen-Dasz single-serve strawberry ice cream
The ice cream was my fat-before-bedtime, since we're low on heavy cream. Obviously, it isn't reducing my dairy intake - and I'm still thinking about ways and means for that. Trace ketones at bedtime.
