Hi Everyone-

Just checking in for a very quick Hi and Happy New Year. I have been struck with a very nasty stomach flu. I have not ate since Sunday evening and I am still not hungry either. I will spare you the gross details but you get the point. I have been asleep for the majority of the last few days. Honestly even in my pre-celiac days I have never felt this bad...yesterday I called a coworker to cover for me, she agreed and then called me back 15 minutes later she too was sick and was not going into work.

It has not been that good of a few days. So Happy New Year and I am getting back to bed.

Awww Pieter....sweet li'l bear!!! Mothers can be so unintentionally cruel, trying to do the right thing for their babbies :( I had a stuffed monkey that I finally gave to my son a couple of years ago. I wonder if he still has it? I'm almost afraid to ask. Probabaly being chewed on by my granddaughter :)

I used to play guitar in a country band.....and saw waaaayyy too many New Years Celebrations. I'm almost afraid to venture out :lol: I'm too old....it's too expensive....what other excuses can I come up with? We just play old pharts at home; munch some giunk phood, read, hang out. Neither of us drink (I never could drink). We must be the Grinches of New Years.

Not sad to see this year gone. Lots of yuk, tho' some good stuff. Looking forward to seeing what this year brings.....hopefully good health for all of us and a much better job for me....and lots of fun gardening! <:smiley with dirt/plant stains:>

Just thought I would stop by and wish everyone a Happy New Year. I'm hoping to stay up to midnight for the 'big' moment but one can never predict these things in advance. So All Psillies have a safe and happy New Year :)

Amanda I hope your feeling better soon. It's never fun to be under the weather.

Oh, poor wee sick psillies- we must send them the Twas to do their house work, serve them chicken soup.

JUDY AND AMANDA- FEEL BETTER!!!!!!

They started with a few rows and....I was hopeful that it would be just that part......we didn't go for three days and today, the other 2/3 was uprooted, and in broken spanish I found out that the last 1/3 would be removed also........

Shall I actually watch Mamma Mia????? :o Everyone loves it so much........

I HATE HATE HATE HATE the sound of trees being cut down. I feel like I'm dying. No reason- ever since I was little. the sound of trees being cut down went through me sideways. Can't stand the sight of trees razed.

As for Mama Mia, knowing you as I do- NO!!!!!!!!! It was cute but they are bursting into song every five seconds and Pierce Brosnan CANNOT sing :lol: :lol:

Duh, what's a blankie. I had still have a small stuffed bear, about four inches tall. He is blind, since my mother pulled his eyes out so I would not choke on them. :angry:

Oh Pieter- so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check out The Periodic Table of Awesomeness

Check out 1 and 11 :lol:

and........

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As you might guess....I love the trees. Can't stand to see them just destroyed! In this area there are lots of new housing developements. They clear out every single tree :o . I can't stand it! So then people have to plant new trees.....which take forever to become their beautiful selves.

I DO like that there are still lots of orchards around here, though. And mountains just loaded with treez and shrubz and wildlife......the wildlife even comes into our yard.....kool!

I'm still at work listening to horrible holiday music in the lobby speakers. My bf will be coming soon to pick me up for our par-tay! Very smal par-tay..... No drinking for bunnies, little run down lately. Sugary alcohol not so good for tired bunnies, maybe one glass of red wine all night.

Did you know bunnies can be litter-box trained? I'm so excited! I told my boyfriend we're gonna have one someday.

I LOVE MY SILLIES TOO!!!!!!

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
