Yup, you get the good stuff...hope it hold until it gets to the coast. Sadly, we might just get a dusting. Snow day tomorrow for YOU! :D

We usually do not... we usually get nothing here due to the small mountain valley we are in.

Ohhhh Gnikkers, hugs from me too. Screw that boiler tho, yah?

Russel (hehe) awesome that the work hrs didn't change. How awful/worrisome that something as potentially impactful on your ds could be so cavalierly changed.

Hugs Nikki :wub: ... I have ordered a professional baking pan for donuts, it's heavy enough to classify as self-defense weapon. If you need it, it's yours. Just stress management, you know... :ph34r:

Plan A. Work for five years, save money, sell the house, move to Ecuador and retire.

Plan B. Work for five years, save money, sell the house, spend several years sailing the South Pacific, around South America, and the Carribean with the pirate. Then move to Ecuador and retire.

We're in the South Pacific ;)

...... well, maybe the south South Pacific.

You could always talk to my niece. She did that for several years, well not the retire part but sailed the South Pacific with her 'pirate' whilst operating her wholesaling business. Put into Fiji, fly off and come back; put into Papeete, fly off and come back; put into Pango Pango, fly off, come back. Had all the ITC equipment on the boat. Not sure if she got tired of the boat or the pirate :rolleyes:

NZ is on the to-do list. It'd be in about 7 years. Plan to go hiking with me Shroomie.

Heck, by that time it would have to be somewhere my walking frame would go :blink::lol:

Certainly not the Milford Track, which you really SHOULD consider doing. And maybe the Abel Tasman, and the Heaphy, and the Hollyford......

Why don't y'all just come visit us when we hit the Carribean? Or Hawaii? Or Fiji?

Been doing more numbers on this. Totally doable as long as the housing market continues to rise.

Pirate says we can go around South America from left to right, but not the other way (prevailing winds and tides and all that). Once we're on that side, the only way back is through the Panama Canal.

    • 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.
