oooooh that might work.... no duct tape or masking (i don't think)... i'll see what i can scrounge together...

Or try a rolled up bath towel.

Does housing pay your heating bill? If so you might email them to suggest they install a gasket on the bottom of your door or threshold which will keep bugs out and save energy :)

I've been doing the towel, but i can't do anything with it when i leave as it moves. I did however find some double sticky side tape and some cardboard and taped it at the bottom of the door so its flush with the floor. It opens and closes more slowly.. but if it works...

Yeah, they do. I used their email this time. I know for a fact that the head of housing often answers the emails.... so maybe this'll get them to do something about it?

I would have sent an emailing discussing the wasps I had found, then stated that I was allergic to wasps and demanded to know what precautions they would be taking to get me to the ER if I were stung.....

maybe. Oh well (I swell really bad at the sight, it has yet become bad enough for epi pens apperently), I'ma get a can of hairspray next time i go to the store. Probably something cheap to make it easier to kill them, as lysol ticks them off.

I got myself into another delima... lets just say never leave dishsoap on something thats going in the dishwasher to be ran. Don't do it!

There was one family who we have not heard from since before the storm and we could not reach all day. So I put out an all call on Facebook to track them down and someone saw it and called someone else who drove out to their house and found them stuck with out power or food! Now they have dinner and are safe! Yay! Internet+Smart phones rock at a time like this! *insert snoopy dancing here*

I just lost all 5 of my multiquotes, and I can see smilies but can't use them.

When you select posts for MultiQuote, a button will appear in the bottom right corner. Use that button to launch the reply window with the quotes in it.

If you can't access the smileys, try clicking the leftmost button on the upper tool bar. That is the one that toggles the edit mode. The tool bar buttons do not work in basic edit mode any more--they did before the upgrade.

LOL! I don't know if it was your karma or not. The outage originated with power problems at the internet connection to celiac.com. The celiac.com server is in your state, Bunnie! :o

Please check your messages - still trying to figure out alternate way to get volume 4 if the Kindle keeps rejecting it.

Glad you're okay, Patteigh. :)

I'm also glad you're alright, Patti. You were in one of the two hardest hit states. I worried about all of my friends back home. We're such a widespread group that it's scary when we can't stay in touch. I was without power from Monday at 4 pm until 3 am this morning. We lost a lot of meat from the freezer. the food losses in the fridge were not as bad as we thought they'd be.

Going to bed as I'm wiped out. Tomorrow I see the pain doctor. He's seeing patients at a restaurant as he has no power. I'm guessing we won't have to give a urine sample.

Be well my psillies. Stay warm & dry.

Much love, :wub: :wub:

Oh my word, I kept waking in the night to see if we were back together :o

My friends Granny in Baltimore lost phone contact for a while, we think the mast went down, but everyone now accounted for.

Nice to see everyone again. Hope anyone who has clean up to do finds what they need x

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
