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:

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...

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • 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
