Doesn't anyone else out there like the more traditional way better?????? The trick is, behind every spoiled woman is a satisfied man! ;) I had a friend, and not a real close friend, come to me for marital advice, they were just getting back together after separation and it wasn't going well. She had a whole list of things he wasn't doing ... I just asked her one question, "You have this whole list of things he should be doing to be a good husband and father, he has one thing on his list, are you doing that one thing?" They BOTH seem very happy now.

Patti, was that clear enough ... I remember last time I had to really spell it out for you. :lol::lol::lol:

Richard, maybe you can verify this for us, men will bend over backwards to do the 3000 things on our list if the one thing on theirs is taken care of.

Crystal clear :lol:

And I knew THAT--(believe me B) ) I thought maybe you had something else up your sleeve!

And for the record, I agree with you 100%--and I've been married to the same man for 31 years :o I know I don't look old enough, but..... :D

Songs in my head.....

for some odd reason the main song from "Oklahoma" ............"oooooooooooh klahoma when the wind comes sweeping down the plain...." Oh how i hate how annoying that musical is.

also Ok Go's "Get Over It" and "You're So Damn Hot."

and KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See."

And last but not least....the theme song to CSI: Miami by the Who "Whooooo are you? Who, Who, Who, Who....I really wanna know"

:P

I couldn't help it. He made me so MAD. I'm usually a pretty happy-go-lucky, live and let live kind of person. He triggered some kind of hostility in me that I don't know what happened. MAN, I was furious. I guess it's the Southern Belle thing . . . . we're sticky sweet, but don't hack us off!

Things to ponder

Last night I played a blank tape at full blast. The mime next door went nuts.

If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation?

Just think how much deeper the ocean would be if sponges didn't live there.

If a cow laughed, would milk come out her nose?

:lol::lol::lol: excellent.....

Another thing to ponder:

:lol::lol::lol: also excellent.....

Doesn't anyone else out there like the more traditional way better??????

Um, yes (hand raised), I do,

WHERE IS MY HUSBAND????? :(:lol:

(not really looking for him - he'll find me when it's time - but dang, you guys always remind me WHAT I'm missing )

I know Lynne--he touched a nerve with me, too. I almost never post in anger to anyone, but when he said that food intolerance didn't exist, I saw red! I actually had tears in my eyes by the time I finished posting! :ph34r:

That's what made it so funny! I was chuckling as I read it ... WOW, this guy has really ticked off Lynne!!

(rummaging through his closet looking for a 10' pole)

Nope not gonna touch that, even if I could find the 10' pole!

Update in the fridge situation. I mentioned that we (Maddy & I) went shopping for fridges, and what we had found, and tried to make my case for the BIG side-by-side. She wasn't having any bit of it. She even suggested we just get (gasp) another one like the one we have :( , because we can't agree on anything else!

Meanwhile Maddy walked up to the old fridge and tries to wrap her arms around it and says "I wan dis un" (I want this one) Our anniversary is coming up 10/10, so maybe we'll go out to dinner and Home Depot/LOWES/Sears and then settle things when we come home. (I can't say who I'm rooting for now that Carla brought this up!).

The gift for the person in your life who has everything:

Looks like you touched it ... we got our answer. ;) Men are so easy to manipulate! :lol::lol: Just let her get the refrigerator she wants .... she may change her mind at the store like Patti did. But if you're really pushing her now, she won't ever change her mind. Tell her it's more important to you that she like the refrigerator, so just pick out what she wants. Then there's nothing holding her to the one she thinks she wants ... Does this make sense to you? I know it makes sense to the women! :lol:

I think we ought to give something like that a proper name, as in "she really Carla'd that donut...then she put the rest (most of it) in the freezer." :)

"My kids just Carla'd their brussell sprouts" :D

"Honey, what's wrong? You don't like my meat loaf? You hardly Carla'd it!" :lol:

Has anyone seen that episode of "Ed" were his best friend gets him to eat a Lays potato chip, and he's all bent about it because he wanted to be the guy that ate "only one"? I used to love the dares/bets those guys used to make!

Something for those of you that are Carla'ing milk...

In a nutshell--kids are eating lunch and don't want to drink their milk. The mom says--it's good for you, it'll make your bones strong--look at Mr. Such and Such next door.

They look out the window, and the guy goes to lift his wheelbarrow (which is filled with dirt) and his arms just break off. He then deadpans--'this can't be good" The kids immediately pick up the glasses of milk and start furiously drinking. :lol:

You had to be there.... :P

    • Hi everyone, I've been reading this forum sporadically and have some questions of my own. I'm in my 40s and was diagnosed with celiac last December by biopsy and blood work after months of tests by my primary and then a gastro. My husband, around the same age as me, was dx'd with stage 4 cancer a month later, so admittedly it's took me longer than I'd have liked to learn about celiac. Now I feel pretty on top of my diet. I mostly make my own food - proteins and veggies, with some certified gluten-free snacks in the mix - and am pretty strict about what I will/won't eat at friend's houses or in restaurants (I prefer to go to dedicated gluten-free kitchens whenever possible). I'm doing okay on the diet, but still getting glutened every so often, usually when I let me guard down outside the home. I also periodically see my primary and a naturopath (who happens to have celiac!), but still, I have many questions if anyone would care to answer:

      -FATIGUE. I'm still so tired, fatigued so much of the time. My doctors blame this on the stress of my husband's diagnosis and my periodic trouble sleeping. But even during weeks where I'm sleeping enough (8-10 hrs a day), eating right, exercising as I can, trying to keep stress at bay, I'm still so bleeping tired. Maybe not when I wake up, but by late afternoon. Often my legs even feel weak/wooden. Has anyone else experienced greater fatigue early on after being diagnosed? This will pass, yes? I know I could cut out the sweets and that could help, but also, being a caregiver is hard and sometimes it's nice to eat your feelings between therapy sessions.  

      -SYMPTOMS CAUSED BY FATIGUE? Sometimes I'll have other "feels like I've been glutened" symptoms if I haven't gotten enough sleep, though I'm trying so hard to sleep at least 8 hours a night these days. Hasn't happened in a while thankfully, but there was a point this summer where my insomnia was bad and my arms were achy and I had some crazy flank/back pain I'd never experienced before. For weeks. Doctor ordered me to sleep sleep sleep, taking Benedryl if needed. I did, and the symptoms went away, but weird, yes? Has this happened to you? I ask because I want to make sure I'm getting all strange pains tested to the full extent if there's a chance it's something other than celiac. I do sometimes still feel that strange side stitch after a CC incident.

      -SKIN PROBLEMS. I have had a smidge of eczema since I was a teen and it - and the dermatitis herpetiformis I've acquired with my dx - are out of control right now. I recognize the connection with stress, but also, has anyone found any great natural remedies for DH to stop the itching? I've tried so many useless ointments and medicated creams, a number of them given to my by a dermo months ago. I see my naturopath this week, but thought I'd ask here too.

      -MOSTLY gluten-free KITCHEN GOOD ENOUGH? My husband is supportive of my diet and mostly eats gluten free meals with me, but we still keep a gluten-y toaster for him and the gluten-y dog food in a corner of the kitchen and he still makes the occasional meal with gluten for himself on his own cookware (ravioli, pizza, mac n cheese, etc). Or sometimes I make eggs/toast and the like for him when he's too sick to move. Otherwise, we're militant about how we cook, which cookware we use, etc. He even has a kitchen nook off our den where he makes sandwiches. But sometimes I wonder if having two separate sponges in our shared-ish main kitchen is enough and I should just banish all gluten whatsoever from the kitchen. I can't be the only one with a mixed kitchen, right? How do you do it if you have a mixed-eating family?

      Thank you so much!  
    • Hang in there!  Count your blessings.  Do something you like to do and relax. I know that is hard to do as a young mother (as I sit here in the kitchen sipping coffee quietly as my teenager is sleeping in after a late football game last night where she marched in 90 degree plus weather in full uniform).   But seriously, take a few minutes to relax!  
    • Meredith, this is very true. A colonoscopy is for diagnosis of the lower intestine, endoscopy for the upper intestine.  How did your doctor interpret the tests? I suggest you read the link Cycling Lady gave you because it contains a lot of good information. 
    • Sorry, but this product (supplement) is not even certified gluten free.   Seems odd that a product geared to Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance would not take the extra step of getting certified.   I guess I am a Nervous Nellie, especially after the reports that several probiotics were contaminated with gluten.   https://celiac.org/blog/2015/06/probiotics-your-friend-or-foe/
    • Thank you for posting that. I've had a lot of that bloodwork done and everything is normal. At the peak of this belly bug I had blood work done and my white count was fine. I think it's just my health anxiety scaring me into thinking this is something scarier (to me) than celiac. Maybe the anxiety will subside once I go gluten-free. The anxiety is brutal.
