I suffer from a chronic condition. When friends I haven't heard from in a while ask me how things with my health are my  reply is:
"Things could be better, things could  be worse. And if you can't fix it you've got to stand it".

I used "a bitch of an unsatisfactory situation" the other day in an email to my husband when discussing our dog Cowboy and his attitude regarding not getting Thanksgiving leftovers the next night too.  I couldn't resist since it summed up the whole situation perfectly.   :)

LOL, that's great tango!  It's a cute name for a dog too. :)

Welcome to BetterMost!  Want a cup of coffee, and a piece of cherry cake?

No cherry cake, my doctor thinks I'm gluten intolerant so have to avoid it until the test results come back. But I'd love some coffee.   ;)

My husband named the dog Cowboy because he's a Black Mouth Cur which is a dog primarily bred in the Southern US used to herd cattle and for hunting. Which Cowboy did when we had cows but now he's retired old and grumpy. Here's what Cowboy looks like, they're very handsome, rugged, fearless and loyal dogs.

LOL, something about the way you turned down the cake (but accepted coffee) made me imagine Ennis saying, "I'll take a cup of coffe, but I can't eat no cake just now -- my doctor thinks I'm gluten intolerant so I have to avoid it until the test results come back."

 :)   I hope it doesn't sound like I'm making a joke at your health's expense, tango. The wording just struck me funny. If you get the OK from your doctor, come on back and I'll serve you a big piece!  :)

Until then, how about a piece of leftover turkey?

Better yet, tango -- gluten-free cherry cake!
