It's a lot easier to make poor choices if you know someone will rescue you. I still think the only help you should offer your brother is teaching him to manage things better. Digging yourself out of holes teaches you to avoid them in the future.

Your decision to help your daughter makes sense. You feel like she's beginning to act like an adult and you want to encourage that. I would still make them pay rent, but you could have it be by putting money into a college fund for the baby. Even if it's only $10 a month, they'll be aware that what you are doing is nice, not an obligation.

Here I go again agreeing--but this is such excellent advice!

Not feeling well today :( While I was out I bought some Pacific chicken broth and I'm going to use that as a shortcut to have some homemade chicken soup later. Will add me own veggies and chicken :)

Take the class. It's not like you've had a carefree life and this is just one more foolish indulgence - you have earned this.

Couldn't agree more!!!

Dang, she's good!!!

Tis quite a pleasure actually. You can do it alone, or with someone special near you. Try putting on some music you really enjoy. Maybe light a few candles, and then, just........go for it! You'll be so happy when you achieved excellence! You'll want to do it over and over again! Just don't forget the pleasures of plussing other people. We all need variety, after all.

:lol::lol::lol:

. . . and don't forget the golden rule:

Plus unto others as you would have them plus unto you.

This is true. . . . . . .... .but I just dunno if I would be comfortable plussing a complete stranger.... . .someone outside the confines of Psillyville. Perhaps this is something I just need to do, to broaden my horizons, generate more self-confidence. . . . .....

Okay... . .I'm goin' in. . . . . ...gonna head out and stealthily PLUS a phorum member who is a complete stranger... . ....... ..

My niece (not mentioned previously) just got a degree in Latin and Italian. But even better, she just passed bartending school! Which one do you think will actually support her? May have to invite her to KC to demonstrate her education. She can give all the drinks Latin names.

I know..... I'm too much of a softee. But truth be told......I've turned down my brother many times. When he lost his apartment he needed help moving all his furniture into storage....from a second story apartment. He knows I have fibro. And my husband, with one leg, has enough trouble with stairs as it is. There was no way. A couple months later he told me he almost committed suicide that day. Talk about a guilt trip! <_<

.. . ..I plussed him and I didn't even see his face. . . . . . ....

....or his thumbs! :P

OMG.. ... . :unsure:.... . ... ..now, is it possible for the Plussee to view who the Plusser is?? Mygawd, he cannot know that it was me. .......how embarrassing. This would take away the whole mystery, the entire magic of it being some sudden, crazed action by a fellow member ... . ....

Do y'all think I may regret this in the morning??

Now, divulging who I've anonymously plussed seems somehow........ . ..just wrong. I have NEVER been a girl to plus and tell. . . ... . ....

Soooo sleepy! Took full advantage of the one sunny day we've had in weeks. I'm too tired to get up and make dinner for my kids. Would probably just do a cereal night if dd didn't have a friend over ;) It was a great day and my first modeling chocolate rose didn't turn out half bad--not picture quality yet, but maybe tomorrow ;)

My DD has one there....cat's eyes and whiskers. I know she said it was more sensitive because there's no fatty tissue there, but I don't know the extent of the pain.

I got an airbrushed one today for 3$. It's scented and everything :P Thought I'd try it out and see if I still like it in a week....I really want to get the Celtic love knot. It's lovely and meaningful--that's what I've been searching for for years!!

Then today my brother calls. He mentions how little money he has but doesn't actually ask for any, and I'm not going to offer if he doesn't have the balls to ask.

And I don't want to give up my chance at this class.

So now I feel guilty. I don't want to feel guilty, but I do.

I know it's been said over and over, but take the class!!! Went through some similar stuff with my brother too, he was living with us temporarily while he was "getting back on his feet" but he actually started stealing money from me AND my kids to support his heroin habit. It was devastating! I kicked him out and he went AWOL for months. My mom finally tracked him down and I ended up leaving home for a few days to help detox him. I told his this was the last help of any kind he would ever get from me unless he cleaned himself up for good and he'd NEVER see another dime from me no matter what. He was 2 years clean last week :)

OKAY!! I PLUSSED A COMPLETE STRANGER!

Thank gawd I did not volunteer to be at all involved in this spring camp up here. Yesterday had intermittent showers, and it's just plain raining today. Sitting in tents with a bunch of thirteen year-old boys, no ipods, DVD players.... . ......just each other.. ....GAH. :o

M's troop says that moms are welcome at camp or overnight camping trips. However, they tell you that this is a male event and it's not the same with moms around. Moms do not like some of the things like camping with no actual latrines. Making only Ramen noodles and oreos for breakfast. Our group let's them plan food and suffer the consequences.

I'm holding another as yet unphrootphul open house.....

Did I tell ya'll that the wee bird is still making appearances at my bathroom window? He usually shows up in the morning, and pecks on the glass. I stood right there and watched him and it didn't faze him a bit. He's really pretty--light brown wif a bright orange beak. :D

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
