#916235 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

Posted by notme! on 16 May 2014 - 08:00 AM

A new morning here in Sunny San Diego!

 

Thankfully the winds are switching directions today which will bring the much needed cooler air - hoping for gentle wind speeds -- to help our firefighters get control of the mess this asshole or assholes created. 

 

As usual with these wildfires the reports of houses being destroyed are heartbreaking -- a friend from HS's older sister's home is gone this morning, heartbreaking but she and the others will rebuild -- lives can't be replaced -- a body was found in close to one of the clusters of homes that burned -- waiting for the news that it was a homeowner that decided to protect their own property.  If you receive an evacuation order for whatever reason -- take heed and live to complain about the displacement.  Oops...hoping off the soapbox.

 

Last night we had breakfast for dinner -- only niece and nephew as guests -- their SDPD parents were off doing evacs -- this is a detective and an investigator -- one of which hasn't been in uniform on the streets for over fifteen years -- this is how stretched our emergency personnel is :(

 

Today I get to watch another nephew, my "angel baby" (6'5" 24 year old loves when I call him that in public) graduate from SDSU with three degrees...check out his functional art:

Happy Friday Dinner Peeps :wub:

:( wow - really scary out there, huh.  i hope everybody complies with evac orders, although i don't know how i would act under the circumstances!  it would be hard to leave my home on a moment's notice :(

 

your nephew looks like an 'angel baby'!  congrats!!  (and that is one funky chair lolz - have you tried it out?)  :D

 

tonight's dinner will be a crap shoot.  hubs snapped a front spring in dayton oh and ran it all the way down to knoxville without realizing it was broken.  he must have an army of guardian angels.  an.  army.  of.  them.  

 

being a trucker's wife is so romantic, when you're out there at 3 am and he whispers softly in your ear, "baby?  would you hold this?"  - it's the flashlight................... :rolleyes:

sons of bill - wrote a song called 'santa ana winds'  - it's pretty great (and they are pretty nice fellers, too)  check 'em

 

tonight is:  skip ;)

 

last night i made swedish meatballs w/noodles <would have been good with zoodles, tho) and carrots.  i accidently got whole wheat pasta instead of regular for the hubs (most nights i just make all gluten-free pasta, but sometimes i gotta spoil him) anyways, back to the wheat:  he bitched so hard about the whole wheat!  i was like wth!  lololz what is this GAME of LOVE that i CANNOT WIN !!!????   ^_^

 

still fooling with house painters.  this is how it goes:  i have a list of painters referred from various sources.  i call a painter, and he tells me he is booked through till july.  we paint a little more on the house.  i call the next one on the list.  he tells me an outrageous price and then tells me they can't touch the level of workmanship that my husband has already done (basically, we're going to rob you and do crappy work) i tell them how much money i have to spend.  we paint a little more on the house.  i go buy a ladder stabilizer and five gallons of paint.  i call the next painter on the list.  tells me he'll calll me back between 5-6 pm.  no call.  we paint a little more on the house.  the second painter calls me back.  they now know how much $$ we have to spend and are determined to separate us from it.   they want to come and and do a REALLY crappy job.  we paint a little more on the house..................  

 

we are nearly finished painting.   <_<

#915243 So Skinny :(

Posted by notme! on 06 May 2014 - 08:06 AM

On top of all this I crushed the kids dreams today. Through a round about discussion I informed him he will never be able to join the military (he's said forever he wanted to be an Air Force Pilot). Now I'm sure he'll change him mind a million times before he's grown but this was bad, sad and right before school. Kid was in tears as was I.   :(

awww  :( this made me tear up.  my son has diabetes type 1 - he was diagnosed at age 19, when he was still deciding whether he was wanting to join the military.  his sister is in the air force and he thinks it's awesome.  when he got his dx, that option came right off the table.  he is still a little wistful about it.  anyways, he got his dx, and he floundered!  he ate what he shouldn't have, his sugar was out of control and we didn't see him from day to day because he was away at school.  now that he's been home for a few years, he has taken charge of it.  he eats low carb, calculates his food intake, works out and runs everyday.   he had to figure out that he was strong enough to own it, do you know what i mean?  just like any other kid (and i know, mine is not 7) with a disability, you have to build them up.  their (and ours, too) handicap makes them more, not less :)  we have to be sharper and more clever and creative -  we have to be more educated than the average eater, therefore more knowledgeable than joe cheeseburger.  that makes us (and him) actually, forces us to treat our bodies better, which is so smart :)  

 

he is awesome!  we can do it!  different isn't less!  :D

#913346 Starting To Realize Hurt Feelings Aren't As Important As Personal Health

Posted by notme! on 21 April 2014 - 08:00 AM

we do the church dinner quite a bit, so i will make something that is gluten free, take some out and bring it in a separate container.  i never eat what's on the 'buffet' EVEN IF I BRING IT AND IT STARTS OUT GLUTEN FREE.  (true story:  i used to play a game with myself.  the Can't Eat THAT Game.  watch how fast things get contaminated.  crouton drops into the big bowl of green salad.  whelp.  can't eat THAT :(  somebody sticks the pasta spoon into the chili.  whelp.  can't eat THAT...)  it's over pretty quick, lolz, just bring your own so you don't starve to death or have to be sick for days on end.  and, if you happen to bring some of your dish home that is leftover, don't be tempted to eat it  :)  no, no, no!  :)

 

it does get easier  :)  it's a hard concept for people to understand, but eventually they ..........well........ actually, no, they still offer me up their food, but it is quickly followed with a "you're not gonna eat this,, are you."  NOPE!  smile big :D  move along ;)

#912469 Anyone Have First Hand Experience With Unintentional Weight Loss? Or Unable T...

Posted by notme! on 13 April 2014 - 10:14 AM

yes, dude, that happened to many of us.  my doctor was still scratching his head, telling me i was now so underweight that i would have to go into the hospital to be 'fed' - the celiac was his 'hail mary pass' last stab at what could possibly be wrong with me.  i underwent various other tests to rule out what it wasn't (crohn's, cancer, blah blah) was advised to try gluten free AND THEN tested.  when it came back negative, well, duh, i was already 6 wks or so gluten-free.  in 3 years i have gained back 22 lbs and i would like about 5 more.  the more you heal, the more nutrients you will absorb.  and p.s. that is the shape my duodenum was in when i got scoped.  your doc should make the call  :)  good luck!

Posted by notme! on 12 April 2014 - 12:05 PM

this is a very old thread.  i would say the info is no longer reliable.  if you are interested in current friendly's info, maybe you should start a new thread for updated info.

#912131 Digestive Enzymes

Posted by notme! on 10 April 2014 - 08:35 AM

i have been meaning to try these, but kept forgetting to pick them up (they don't sell them where i grocery shop) FINALLY remembered to get them.  you take them before every meal.  

 

they are my best friend.  i thought, well, i'll just give this a test drive.  holy guacamole, they work like a charm.  everything is nice and quiet and niiiiice.  i know my intestines are probably stilll damaged, so i was patient and some things i was eating were not sitting as well as i wanted them to, but this is awesome.  :D

 

yayyyyy!  and thank you, people on this board.  my doctor never even suggested this.  love y'uns's i just all warm and fuzzy (and not in the bathroom all morning ha HAAAA!)  

 

I SHALL HAVE SALAD!  AND GRAPES!  AND DIFFERENT COLOR GRAPES!  AND RAW VEGGIES!  THERE'S NO STOPPING ME WHAT I SHALL EAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

#910753 Accurate Information

Posted by notme! on 29 March 2014 - 01:43 PM

As I understand it, Dr. Oz talks about it all the time and he is equally adept at giving wrong info. :)

the last time i was privy to his spew, he was working the angle that gluten free would miraculously make you lose weight.   lolz - i am sitting here at 119 lbs (up from 97 lbs 3 1/2 yrs ago when i was dx'd)  struggling to gain more.  what a load of crap..............  <_<

#909081 Happy Spring, Fellow Gardeners!

Posted by notme! on 16 March 2014 - 10:15 AM

i usually have a few things that survive through the winter - a giant rosemary bush, sage, thyme <supposed to die every year but i have had one or three that survives longer than that.  not this year - mean, old man winter kilt e'erything.  i have one tiny parsley plant (?)  (random) and the strawberries are still alive under all the dead ones.. otherwise, the weeds say, "hi."  time for mr rototiller to rototill.  ugh, last year he tilled up baby bunnies...  :(  i hope that mama rabbit is smarter this year.

 

anyways, i am itching to get me some plants.  maybe the kid and i will start some seeds  :)

#908480 Questions For You, The Experts...(Advice Needed)

Posted by notme! on 10 March 2014 - 07:52 AM

IMO... probiotics are especially important because your immune system essentially lives in your gut, and so does the base of our health because without food absorption we're dead.  And our clorinated, over-treated, anti-bacterial world is continuously trying to kill off all bacteria - good and bad.  It is important to replace the good guys in there to keep the balance.

yes, yes - also, most of us have had more than our fair share of bacterial infections which doctors prescribed "kill everything" antibiotics, and unfortunately, in killing the bad bacteria, it also kills the good bacteria which is necessary for digestion.  i know i was a safe bet to have pneumonia every year, and usually some other ailment.  for, like, 30 years.......  untreated celiacs are a good target for evil germs because our immune system is already compromised.  like shooting fish in a barrel.

 

i just went through my second winter without having to go to the doctor with pneumonia or something that my body couldn't fight off on it's own.  every cold or virus i ever caught progressed into bronchitis or pneumonia that required me to be treated with antibiotics.  not since my gut started healing:  i now have Super Guts!!!!!!!!!  lolz  ^_^
