Going on our May Croatia trip in just a few days so thought I'd drop in to tell you that I've not dropped off the face of the planet.  Will be happy to trade snow for green grass, blooming plants and warm temps.  Cannot wait to see what our house renos look like!  :D

 

Please tell me I won't miss our Bingley too much.  :(

 

"Talk" to you soon!  Will report back on some of the intriguing culinary delights we discover (I'm sure there will be one or two as usual).

Caio, Bella! and Safe journey. 

 

No worries about Bingley. We had to leave our Bella for a month and she did fine with a pet sitter.

We left some of our shirts for her to snuggle into our scent.

 

You deserve this vacation in the sunshine and already,

You need the spring and sun and to get out of that frozen tundra!

 

You may miss your new little guy but you have so much to look forward to that you will soon have little time to spend missing him. I'm sure he'll find himself equally distracted, as dogs do.

 

And just think, by the time you come back there may even be some green in your tundra too. :D

We definitely do need the sun and warmth and green.  Everything is all white and/or brown.  Not a stitch of green (well, except for the shirt I am wearing at the moment). 

 

And you are right about Bingley.  We adore him but to be honest it will be a great break, just my husband and I.  There is so much to see and do there we could be occupied within an hour radius for many years.  There is the sea, castle ruins, higglepiggledy ancient villages, towns over 2,000 years old with cobblestone streets, Roman ruins, gobsmackingly gorgeous scenery and amazing food.  :)  

 

My back pain is my huge concern - these long flights nearly kill me.  Honestly.  From our door here to our door there is 36 hours of no sleep, intense pain (most of all, being forced to sit in those brutal torture chambers they call airplane seats) and so on but a good massage therapist is waiting for me at the other end.  Just wish there were painkillers strong enough to help but alas...there are not.  I assume it is sort of akin to childbirth.  You go through agony and then right before your eyes lies your hopes and dreams.  Then you forget the ick.

ah, the essence of vacation....no "ick" factor :)

 

I know how hard it is to travel, hon, and I wonder....can you get some low dose muscle relaxers maybe? skelaxin is not as hard on the system

as flexeril (so I am told)

 

Now, you know how I am about drugs, but maybe there is something for you to take perhaps?

 

I hate the thought of you in pain for so long. I was pretty ICKY after just 1200 miles.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
