  1. Nah. It's just one of those things that has gotten progressively worse. What I know is that I have osteoarthritis in my lower back (creates problems if I stand still too long,), 2 bulging disks and a herniated disk in my neck (shouldn't look down to help student, draw, computer), osteopenia, and I have lost 3/4 inch in height. My biggest issue right now is the middle of my back (the sitting problems. No high back chairs, booths, stools, or long car rides)and I have not yet had an MRI on that to find out what exactly is going on. It'll cost around  $900 to get that done. Luckily, the school chairs are great for the way I need to sit....they have low backs. And Brian bought his current motorcycle specifically with my comfort in mind.
  2. Yay you!   I can't sit comfortably on most chairs or any stools, and can't stand for any length of time....all because of my back. But I can dance forever. I feel no pain when I dance. It's awesome! 
  3. Vincent....are you on the e-mail list? Don't think I saw your name.
  4. I think I told this one here years ago, but....why not   What did the fish say when it hit the concrete wall?   Dam!   Awesome!   So anybody interested in an update?     Well....decided it was too much info for the psilly thread so check your e-mail
  5. Hey everyone! I found the Yeti! Apparently he has found employment doing the voice for Garmin. You know....usually you get a woman's voice telling you to "turn left in 1 mile". So my husband recently discovered he can change the voice and one of the options is YETI!! I kid you not
  6. A little humor to put a smile on your face:   My 3-year-old granddaughter walked in on her mom in the restroom   "Mommy, do you have a boo-boo on your jay-jay? Is that your band-aid?"   "uuuhh......yes.....that's exactly right."
  7. I, too am bad about cards, but fortunately I was on top of it this time. I was thinking about searching the thread for Shroomie-isms to post but just don't have the energy right now. Sounds like a job for Jya-nut, but haven't seen her around for some time.
  8. I have big-time issues with sugar and have wondered if it is a leaky gut issue. Along with fruits, starches and grains, I also have to stay away from high glycemic veggies. Snap peas is one of those, and also carrots.
  9.   I don't know. You were included because an advocate is allowed to attend, not because they were being gracious. If you wish to send out emails, maybe it could be to thank them for something else......helping you understand the situation........their patience in handling this difficult situation.......I don't know.
  10.   So is that something he can make go away?   We owe a bunch for last year because Brian was on disability 3 different times in 2012 and they didn't take out federal taxes, even though he requested that they do.
  11. Well.....I guess I was a minute too late. Sounds like a tough situation. I am sure that achool feels they have all the resources necessary to take care of Selia. I have learned from experience they don't like to bring in outsiders, or pay for more help. I was surprised they let you sit in on the conference.   Latin??? Seriously???     Btw......can somebody fix this screen issue created by SOMEbody's oversized picture?
  12. GOOD LUCK, LOWEEE!!!!!!!   I know you are going to WOW them with your brilliance! Not saying anything about DH......don't want to jinx it!   I'm still waiting for this wonderful year of which you speak. Just got my car towed to the mechanic. It won't start and it's not the battery. We've already indebted ourselves with a rebuilt engine
