YO!!!!

Buh-neeee!!!!

:lol::lol: . . . yeah, I saw him, too!! . . . No, our vehicles are safely iced stuck parked in our garage.

You put cars in your garage? :huh: Huh....never tried that.

Update on Yasi:

:o

Note to self: Don't complain about the weather here.

Hang in there, Lo-wee. When hubby's company laid off fired a ton of people (hubs included), they started from the top, getting rid of the higher payed employees.

Hubby's plant has been shut down for 2 days, now, because of the weather. Unbelievable. Weird having him around so much.

Malls have also been closed. I have a birthday gift card to Macy's and can't use it!!

Hubby reported that roads are good . . . not sure why we didn't have school, but I haven't been out of the house since Monday. Could be walkways and loading/unloading zones at schools. Kids are "officially" bored. We're walking down to the neighbors in a bit for some fresh air and fresh faces. Having problems with one of my tires . . . tis really low . . . again . . . guess the first time wasn't some kind of a fluke. Lisa, since you're handling your daughter's window . . . will you take care of my tire issue?

Sure thing! Just meet me at the tire store place ;)

Walking is quite trecherous, so I imagine the bus stops are not safe. I also wonder if they have been able to de-ice all the busses.

Our schools are closed because the temp was below 0. The buses don't start well and they don't want kids waiting outside. Also, all the schools weren't properly plowed or shoveled by 7 last night. They are allowing kids into the schools for the musical dress rehearsal and performance, basketball, wrestling, etc. Letting the Robotics club in at 11. That lot is the last to be plowed so they may have to bring shovels.

In FIRST Robotics you get 6 weeks to design and build a robot. With a major part of the country unable to get to schools to work on them, this could be a year of finishing them at the competitions. One year they gave the ones in Pennsylvania a few extra days. The kids lost at least 10 days of build time there.

Just got back from my friend's house . . . five houses away . . . both kids fell during the walk. I looked quite geriatric as I shuffled, but I did not fall. I have no idea what's going to happen with school tomorrow. Sidewalks/bus stops are solid ice . . . as are most of the roads in my neighborhood. Thru roads are fine and dandy.

What a busy day . . . is it time for a nap?

Hub & I loved these! Haven't showed them to the boys but I will. We looked to see how much but we really shouldn't be buying art with a kid about to go to college.

So was there school today, or is your school district the one with the 2 hour delay?

No school for me. Was quite surprised by that.

Hubby and son-in-law tried to shovel the driveway. Only got a small strip between the cars and the garage door. <_<

We had a 2-hr delay.

Hubby and I worked on drive last night . . . this was after we paid someone a pile of money to salt and plow it (he told us it would take at least 2 applications but we weren't willing to pay that much). . . we wouldn't have stood a chance if he hadn't got a start for us but we still only got about half done. Side walk (to the bus stop) is solid ice and we have no salt to put down to soften it up a bit . . . and apparently none of the hardware stores do either . . . all the salt is stuck in Chicago.

Headed off to go get my tire fixed . . . I'll see you there, Lisa.

I had a big box of Kosher salt and one of pickling salt. Hub used those once because there was no ice melt to be found. :P

Well helloooo psillyville :) I was just tootin round the forums looking for info and couldn't leave without popping in and saying hi!

How is everybody doing in the great blizzard of '11? We only got about 9 inches here, not too bad--at one point they were predicting 15-20 inches so we got lucky. The roads were cleared by the next night and it was much adieux about nothing. I know others didn't get that lucky, tho :(

Not much going on with us--same ole same ole.

We are thinking about the possibility of a job related transfer overseas--that's what I was looking for info about. There may be a slim possibility of hubby's job temporarily relocating to Italy--we'll see.

Other than that, nothing new.

How are all of you all?? Missed you guys :D

Wow, Italy!! That'd be a great adventure! We've looked at Maine, Virginia and Kansas City most recently. Nothing's materialized yet. I was actually hoping for the Maine one even though I REALLY don't want to move :rolleyes:

Oh, we will meet someday, mark my words! Y'all are on my bucket list ;) Forgot to add Boston. I nay'd that one but am regretting a bit. Hub's didn't want the Maine one, so after I found a good neighborhood, good school and fabulous house, he decided not to post for it :rolleyes:

It really does sound pretty exciting, but I don't want to get too worked up yet. There is still only a slim chance that it will happen, but the reality seems to be closer than I thought so I guess I should start gathering some info on how to feed my daughter while there. Who knows--it may only be hubs that gets to go, or maybe not at all. We just don't know yet. I was hoping he'd be asked to relocate to Portland and even secretly wishing his company would open an office in Canada, but no such luck.

I've never been to Maine but we've always wanted to go. My husband had to go to Virginia Beach for a conference last fall and I keep kicking myself for not just spending the money (read: "racking up the credit card") and going along--I've been promising to take my daughter to the wild horse refuge for years.

Are you guys hoping for a transfer?

Halloooooo, Raye-chull! We have missed you here. .. . . .... . . please come by more often! :)

Fab. I had a low tire (ok, completely flat) from a furniture leg. http://www.tablelegs...html?cPath=9_38

:huh: Um...... . . Jeez, two questions, at least to start with.. .. . . .... . when would anyone ever need one of these add-on furniture legs? Doesn't most of one's furniture have, um.. . .enough legs? Like, four, usually. . . ...?

What would ever possess an individual to add yet another leg to his/her table, armoir, chair? Man, that ol' desk o' mine looks like it just needs somethin. . . ...... . . .not a coat of paint... .. ...not new handles.. . . .. HEY! ANOTHER LEG! That's the ticket! Perhaps TWO new legs. . . ..... . it'll be a whole new piece of furniture, and could perhaps just change my whole life!

And, uh, question number two - - Jyess, strange and rare as these add-on appendages must be, how in hell did you manage to not just find one, but RUN INTO it with your car?? :huh:

:lol:

Well hell Rachel!!! No need to miss us!!! You know where to find us . . . every friggin' day!!! :lol:

Gosh how I've missed talking to you guys...sigh.

Yeah . . . like I said . . . :P

I vote for Maine . . . who ever is lookin' . . . at least in the summer!! It was GoreJuss!!!

Every time hubby has anyone talking to him about transfering (I don't think he'll leave this company voluntarily), we look at houses we could afford. I don't think we'll ever leave the midwest. We can't afford this house in any other part of the country.

Portland Oregon? That's (about) where I am!!

He's hoping for a transfer. I am not. He wants to post for a promotion. That would entail moving, and I'm the one holding him back...

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
