"The Other Woman"  is a great name for a sailing blog.  I have seen one or two boats by that name.  A gentleman's ship is truely  a mistress.  Um, maybe a good thing? :rolleyes:

That means all of our wonderful Psilly men are "The Other Man"

You guys are so nice!

 

Here's my first post:

 

The usual thing is to start out with "test test" or "hello world" or some other mundanity, but I'm  not up for that.  I'm just gonna hold my nose and jump and hope it all turns out alright.

 

I suppose the first order of business is to point out the the first woman is a sailboat.  I know, there went 90% of my readers but they would have figured it out anyway the first time I posted a picture of "her naked bottom" and they realized:

  1. We scraped the bottom paint off the boat and she isn't too stimulating when naked and 
  2. The humans involved are actually plump and middle aged.  And will likely never appear naked in this blog.

Ok, so no nudity and we're all happy about it. Then.......what's the point?

 

Well...I want to track my journey.  Part of this will be the sailing thing and part will be whatever sort of random thing seems to be connected with the sailing.  Since we aren't yet on the water much of the early blogging will be random and probably introspective. 

 

I do want to make this fun for anyone reading, partly because I like to be entertaining, and partly because I'm just an ordinary person who had this wacky idea that she could dump her life and do something completely different.  I want other ordinary people to realize that they can do the same.

 

I hope you'll keep reading, and I really hope I'll keep posting.

This is the 3rd time I've written this post and lost it before I sent it! You better not stop blogging or posting because this is NOT ordinary (it's awesome like you)! It's well written & hilarious. How many women get to ride on top of the mistress with their hubbies?

(((Hugs)))

Okey dokey.  Giant chickens have been stuffed into the freezer.  "Ha!" I here you say.  "Just how giant could they be? They're just chickens!"

 

Well, my skeptical friends, the roosters were so big that they had to go into 2.5 gallon bags and my freezer barely closes. The hen is crammed into a gallon bag that can't possibly close but she's in the frig and we'll roast her on Tuesday.

 

Sadly I have no scale so I don't know how much they weigh, but they are hefty and pretty much fat free.

These guys were destined for the table from the start.  They're bred to grow to (beyond) full size in three months and they aren't really healthy.  The hen's liver was already in poor shape and the boys had these weird, long hearts.  Their joints just can't handle the weight of the birds and they would waddle a few steps then sit down.  Well, plump down.  It was kind of a controlled fall.

 

I decided that my options were to either give up meat entirely or participate in the process that brings it to my table.  Harsh, and I don't like it, but I'm not yet willing to become a vegetarian.

Good morning, and welcome to August.

Back in the day, Nikki would do a first day of the month post, but she hasn't been here in months.

Woke up this morning to find (well, Jacquie found it first) a "present" on the bedroom floor. One of the cats caught and killed a mouse and left us the trophy. Riley had been after something in the kitchen recently, and we set out some traps after finding evidence, but the traps remain unsprung.

I am wondering if there is a correlation between cats and celiac/NCGI??

My cat died on Friday, under 10, no obvious reason :(

She was a useless mouser. I once saw a mouse run between her front paws, and she didn't even notice.

There do seem to be an awful lot of them about here.

This seems totally beyond possibility, but you made my brain go out of normalcy. WTH?

Cats and celiac disease.

I probably had celiac disease at a low level for decades before it flared up big time in August of 1995. Diagnosis did not come until July of 2000--five years of celiac hell.

On July 1, 1995, our first cat adopted us. A long story, but he was lost and wandering and we took him in--intending it to be temporary until we could find where he belonged. It turned out he belonged with us. :wub:

But now I wonder: was the timing a coincidence, or was there more to it?

And even if it is so, it won't change my love of the cats who allow us to share their home.

Hahaha, always glad help freak someone's head just a little bit, especially if it involves cats.

Ours was a rescue cat, who I knew was coming to live with us as soon as I saw her little face on the website.

I hope some new cats choose us soon....

Took our puppy to the vet last night... he has been having problems walking and stuff... he is 14 or 15 years old (was a rescue so do not know)... dx was arthritis... not sure how much time we have left with him... our son has only known life with our puppy around (we got him the year before our son was born). Gonna be rough when the time comes. BUT for now, got him some narcotics to try.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss and illness of Psilly pets.....they have been a HUGE part of our lives in Psillyville, right from the start.....  ..Dogs, cats.....even a yeti....and I do wonder how he is faring -- do yetis get osteoarthritis?....Do they get taken in as strays, and put up for adoption?....Quite a commitment, that...        :rolleyes:

Well the puppy is acting a bit younger on the narcotics. At least he is not falling over when going potty and can shake himself out again. So I guess that means it was a good call on the drugs for now.

Definitely no cat involved with the Celiac here, I've been terribly allergic since birth.

 

 

As to the yeti, he's sore and creaky but moving better then before. ;)

http://southbrunswick.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-respond-to-mvc-after-man-refuses-to-remove-pas250cc0dc13#comment_6446963

 

At about noon on Feb. 2, South Brunswick Police responded to the MVC facility on Route 130 in Dayton on reports that a man renewing his driver's license refused to remove the pasta strainer he was wearing on his head for his license photo, according to a police report.

 

According to the police report, an MVC employee told Williams that it's against policy for people to wear head coverings in license photos, unless it's for religious reasons. 

"As a Pastafarian, I believe the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster," Williams said. "The strainer is a showing of my devoutness to the religion."

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
