I hope all of you in the path of the latest storm (is this one Q and when the H!@# did they start naming snowstorms?). I'll keep you all in my prayers. Right now it looks like we're just getting rain and snow but I don't trust Accuweather as much as the Weather Channel. We could be in for it. I kept the number of the snowplow guy in case of another Nemo. Superman is great at shoveling but when it's the size of Nemo it's just too much.

 

DH went grocery shopping for me and bought all the ingredients to make paella (he even read all labels since what I originally put on shopping list had soy in it - my worst trigger). We're getting close with a couple up the street and we've been planning a trip to Newport with them that keeps getting put off because of snow and cold temps. We went to their house last Sunday and I invited them over for paella this Sunday. Haven't made it in years - fingers crossed. It is so nice to have a couple we really relate to. They were original Pfizer transfers from Michigan before they got laid off so there's a real connection.

 

STAY SAFE!!!!!

 

Love,

Loey

Its nice to have a snow day. This is only the second time in all of my years here. It takes a lot for my school to cancel :) But right now the official snow count is 5-8 inches out there. When i watched the news earlier, they said it felt like 0. And then the wind :blink: I have no doubt there are snow dunes moving about.

You go Vincent!!! We've been having trouble with our washer and DH has to literally pull it out and take it apart. The most recent time it was not letting us unlock the door and the clothes were still soaking in suds. The first time we had a repairman come and it cost $160 for him to show DH where to go to fix it. This time he was determined to fix it himself. After an hour he discovered a color catcher sheet was clogging the hoses. Hopefully your blow torch fixed the problem. I pheel for you.

 

Hugs,

Loey

So far so good! No leaks! Fire work good!

When you're an old lady, it's hard to wear a short skirt if your nipples are going to show underneath it.

Serves me right.... Been feeling good, got most of my problem food groups back, don't seem to be as sensitive to cc...... you know what's coming... lol

Had to stop at CVS to get a card and saw the Snickers beckoning to me in the check out line. I figured, what the heck-- ..... 2 hours later the cramps started. Right on schedule. What an idiot.

lol!! It was good, though.

I hold on to clothes too. I am determined this spring to go through and donate what I realistically don't wear anymore -- I don't have as much closet space as I used to.

You are not an idiot. I picked up some homeopathic pills to deal with the UTI pain (ladies {and gentlemen} you know the side effects of antibiotics on females). It said it contained trace elements of soy protein (my worst trigger is soy) and I took it anyway. Wound up sending DH to CVS to get me Benadryl after he was dressed for bed. My lip had started to swell. So, if anyone's an idiot it's me! At least Snickers taste good. BTW, I hope your cramps are gone and I'm glad that that you enjoyed the Snickers. We all sometimes have to feed a craving. 

 

Love & Healing hugz,

Loey

 

P.S. I also lifted the laundry basket when it was overflowing  :blink: (a big NO-NO for my back) and pulled it out a little. I wanted to at least start folding laundry before Superman got home from CVS. Now I'm headed back to the chiropractor. I was ready to go to every two weeks and now I'm seeing her two days in a row. I know she'll straighten me out (no pun intended).  :lol:

Ouch! Low!! Hope the chiro fixes ya up:). Ugh, soy in the Homeopathics.. I use a few things by Boiron-- the only carriers I've seen with them are lactose and fructose.

The only symptom I got from the Snickers was cramps. A few hours worth, but that was about it. Amazing!

Alright dear psillies - my first attempt at multi quoting!  :unsure:

Glad it was just cramps although those ain't no picnic. Hope you've recovered already. The chiro did a great job and said I caught it in time. 

 

When in doubt, always have benadryl on hand.

 

:D  that's something I always had in the house when DS lived here.

We do have the best men on this forum. I'm pretty lucky on the home front as well. OK, let's see how my first multi-quote experience turned out.

I'll touch base later. Superman is ready to taste my lentil stew.

 

Love & Hugz,

Loey

 

P.S. I finally crossed into the thousands and I didn't even notice   :blink:

Any of the "best men" of this forum still single? :D

 

Speaking of which - one of my smartest freshmen proposed, was accepted, and is now getting married: darn them kids, they always make me feel warm and fuzzy! Feeling old in the age of Facebook.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
