    Yesterday feels like a long time ago.

    Today I guess Butters is still trying to earn style points, and I'm just trying to keep up with testing and feeding, and oh yeah, my paid job as well:rolleyes:.

    She dropped <50 with a 45 @+6.5. This is only cycle 4 of 2.75u, so I'm wondering if the 3u depot is still in play or if a true reduction has been earned here. @tiffmaxee @Wendy&Neko Thank you:bighug:

    Have a great day, all!

    Easy there Butters!

    FWIW, I would take the reduction. You haven’t gotten much sleep lately and Butters is looking good!

    hi, just been stalking your SS :woot:

    well, we all know what butters thinks about you having other duties :p

    +1 for reducing (and maybe some sleep).

    You're doing great, Lyla :bighug:

    It's alright, Katherine, I have a few Yiddish terms to call upon. lol!

    I was also leaning toward reducing but like to get uninfluenced opinions:). And still thought that the depot can take four or five cycles to settle after a reduction. I'm not desperate for sleep right now. I actually was thinking today that sleep is overrated because I feel super awake!:smuggrin:

    What did Maslow say about meditation? I can't help but notice its absence from your comment:p.

    Maslow really missed the boat here. Maybe time for a reimagining of it to include meditation (just for jw) and mindless entertainment. Schitt's Creek is a physiological need as an FD CG, I would argue.

    i was pondering its placement and i thought the crowd wisdom might have ideas.
    in among the psychological needs, perhaps?
    next to schitt's of course

    The larger depot influences 4-6 cycles, on cycle 4 I would take the reduction.:D Little girl has plans. :cool: Hopefully that includes some sleep tonight. (antijinx)

    I couldn't help myself and googled it...quora had the best Maslow answer ever -
    Any or all of them. It depends upon why one is meditating, i.e. the motivation behind it.

    I took the reduction even though we were only on cycle four today and the depot can influence 4-6 cycles. I'm actually doing okay today: I think maybe my secret super power is being high functioning on very little sleep.

    PMPS 110.

    I’m glad you took the reduction. Looks like another late night for you. Feel free to prove me wrong Butters.

    86 @+5. Don't make me regret taking the decrease while the old depot was still in play, Butters.:rolleyes:
    On the other hand, I am looking forward to some extra sleep tonight.

    OMG.... wow Lyla you are amazing!!!:woot: How do you do this? Not just function on no sleep :confused: but shoot with such low numbers (which I know you have to but still :nailbiting:) What is your secret? How do you stay calm or do you? I've been contemplating TR but looking at Butters spreadsheet I don't know if I can keep up to that. Is this a typical looking spreadsheet for Butters and have you been doing this since May 2020.? You're amazing Butters soooo lucky to have you on her side. :bighug:
