Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Julie,

Does that meann you can blend up your own nut milks? I have recipes.

Evie,

I'm soy intolerant so I can't eat any mainline chocolate. I've been buying enjoy life chocolate chips.

I am totally addicted to hershey's kisses. i can't get through the day without at least one.

OMG tika, the older dingo who doesn't get into things like Annie does but BENEFITS from it <_< .....she just let out a ripper, such a loud one that it scared her and she ran out of the room......am sitting here cracking up..... :lol::lol::lol:

Lynnie get that dog's BUTT out of your face at night...sheesh, even I, the crazy old dog lady, would not put up with that.......

reading again.....

:lol: My puppy let one rip this morning and chased his own butt looking for it. I think he was a bit shocked that something that loud came out of there. :ph34r:

We don't. Still would highly recommend quitting when you feel you've got your life balanced enough to tackle it.

I can't stand the thought of quitting. I feel that since I had to "give up" everything that I want, I shouldn't have to quit unless I want to. My Dr. just doesn't understand that.

Okay, koalas and Aussie men. I'm on it. I have seen more men than koalas, but I'm not complaining. Any other requests while I'm here? I'll bring back anything you want - except crocodiles. I don't like those.

*In my best Steve Irwin voice* Crikey! Look at that bloke! He's a beaut! :ph34r:

Actually from what I've read, smoking might have saved my life... it seems to slow the Celiac... BUT I am NOT SUGGESTING ANYONE SMOKE.... that's the worst thing you can do for your health.

Okay... don't anyone hate me for writing that.

I think I've read this too. But, now that you're gluten-free, you can quit!! :P My mom quit when she was 42 and went in for a face lift. The plastic surgeon told her he didn't give them to smokers because that's a leading cause of wrinkles. Her vanity made it so she never smoked another cigarette! She threw her pack away right in his office. My step-father went to an acupuncturist, and it worked.

Gosh, having a hard time catching up! No one posted yesterday when I was online for some time, but when I watched a movie with my hubby, you guys were posting away!!!

When we got married, Adam wanted to have our new dog sleep with us. I told him it was me or the dog. I won. ;) So, no dog butts in our bed! We had a dog with such bad, stinky flatulence when I was a kid that guests would leave when he ripped one. Maybe he was celiac.

Back to catching up!

Susan - Did you call the vet when the dog ate the nuggets? Chocolate is highly toxic to dogs, that much chocolate would have killed a smaller dog!! :o

HI Chels, I went online last night and checked the levels of toxicity for dogs; milk chocolate is very toxic in the ratio of one ounce of chocolate per pound of dog. Also called the emergency vet's office.....so, since Annie weighs 55 pounds, she was well within the safe range. Just a bloated,fat piggie with a binge problem, that's all - she's done this before - - and I will now find shiny gold nugget wrappers in the poop starting today, I believe.... :blink:

Nikki, yay - good news about your hubby's weight! :)

Rinne, your "crackers" sound interesting, let us know how that goes...hey, the founder of Lara bars started out in the exact same way, remember! :)

Jeny, I felt the same way about giving up my wine......shook my fist at God and said, look at EVERYTHING I've given up, all that's gone on, and how exhausted and spent I am, and I gave up gluten, and Robert, and no, I am NOT giving up my alcohol..... :angry: well, God won in the end, I guess.....the more unhealthy habits I give up, I am finding, the more blessed I truly am.

(holy Lord, what if He decides I am spending too much time on the computer......oh nooooooooooo :blink: )

Morning everyone....hope we are all well today......gotta get to work!

:)

Amen to that.

(holy Lord, what if He decides I am spending too much time on the computer......oh nooooooooooo :blink: )

I think about that often to. These last few months the kids have been watching entirely too much TV in the form of Little House, Mister Ed, Davey & Goliath, Andy Griffith, My Friend Ficka, Thunderhead, National Velvet, Lassie, and Charlie Brown Christmas. That's about all we have but I may have missed a few.

Susan, I didn't know that about Lara Bars but now you've made me curious. I'm actually trying to come up with something that I can market at a folk festival I'll be attending.

These days getting wild for me is half a cup of coffee. :lol:

Andrea, at least your children are watching wholesome entertainment. I find much of what is available for children shocking.

MONDAY, JULY 31, 2006 11:45 AM, CDT

So far, no fevers today. They just removed the central line and aren't trying for another IV unless another fever appears. Once she's about 48 hrs. fever free, we can go home! I can hardly believe it!

She's doing well without oxygen now, with her O2 Sats staying above 90. She's been happily playing most of the morning and is resting comfortably now. She's really doing well, praise God!

She lit up when she saw Cole this morning and has been entertaining the doctors and nurses, as well as us. She's just too cute!

WOW!!!

We don't have the TV hooked up. We just have DVD's and videos so we can control what their options are.

I love Lara bars....it's our new family favorite.

WOW!!!!

WOW!!!

That's a great report Vincent.....Thank you again.

We do not have cable, we use a family freindly statilite service called Sky Angel ( http://www.skyangel.com/ ) for that reason alone. Alot less chanels, but none of the filth.

Andrea, we do the same. I buy videos at Blockbuster when they sell their previously viewed ones for a discount. Then for the kids we also have old tv shows. A really funny thing happened when my son was about 6 and we went to my grandparents. They had a cable cartoon on, and a commercial came on. My son looked at my grandpa with a disgusted look. Then another one came on, the same thing. After a few commercials my son shouted, "Quit changing the channel!" My granfather got mad, stood up and said, "Hasn't this kid ever seen a commercial!" :lol: I can't imagine how many dollars we've saved having our kids miss out on the commercials for all the garbage they're trying to sell.

We talked about whether to get cable hooked up this time when we moved ... but in the end decided not to. We've not had it for 13 years, why bother now? I have trouble enough getting them away from the iPods, computers, movies, video games, etc.

Susan....I meant to tell you this yesterday. Dove makes chococlates with almonds in them now!! They're pretty new. We just got them in a couple weeks ago at my work....yes, besides being the dairy manager and stocking all the yogurts and cheese (which I cant have)...I'm also in charge of the candy section. How cruel is that?? <_<

The new Dove w/ almonds come in a stand-up bag....like Popables. Maybe you could try these next time?? Oh....I didnt check if they're gluten-free or not so if anyone decides to try these....DOUBLE CHECK.

YAY for Megan!! :D

That is such great news!!

I know what you mean. When we got our van last month the dealership had a TV and my daughter happened to find Little House. She was confused by all the commercials since she was used to watching them commercial free.

Yes, good news to all parents who are monitoring the filth....my nieces (my brother's five daughters) had seen EVERYTHING by age 6 or 7. Movies that I found so repugnant I couldn't watch, they'd all seen many times.......my bro loves horror movies and has always watched them with the girls.....no wonder they couldn't even go to the bathroom alone until they were teens......but in my exhausted phase, I watched lots of TV unfortunately, and was pretty disgusted by what was on in prime time, that kids had easy access to.

Nikki - golden poops :lol::lol::lol:

Carla and everyone else - also check out half.com, an affiliate of eBay, it's where I get all of my books, celiac disease's - incredible prices - and DVD's. I've sold things on there as well.

Jeny - - yes, the computer is my vice now - - and the odd clove cigarette :ph34r: But I need to be making jewelry as have a show coming up in the fall!

Rachel - - I LOVE MY HERSHEY's - just love the flavor of the chocolate - sadly, Dove doesn't do it for me. So my mom points out, um, honey, maybe you could just eat say, SIX NUGGETS instead of EIGHTEEN ......so last night I had six, and no problems.....

Where's Patti - - finishing her projects? - - we need photos.... :)

good news on Megan!!

gotta go - - -

Edit - ha ha :) forgot that when you type in C D it comes out celiac disease.....

Okay, just spent 1 hour reading all the pages I missed...I had a busy weekend and wasn't able to keep current, so these are OLD replies, lol:

Just saw Donna's job

Me too!! :lol::lol:

and RACHEL....get a hold of yourself......you know they have meetings for people like you, who are lost in their addictions to a substance....oh......wait......I don't think they address the ice cream addiction specifically....

:lol: :lol:

Do not fear, gentle citizens of R-ville! We shall simply never, EVER run short of Altoids, ice cream, inordinately large and impossibly sweet mangos grown without Auxigro, Hershey's Nuggets with Almonds (in fact I am goign to the store just now in my pajamas to get some)....what else? all the histamine-free produce and spinach you can eat, you name it!! None of it will ever, ever run out.

Bumble Bars & peanut butter.

There was so much goose crap all over the road, that as the bike traveled down the road, it would kick up all the goose crap into the wagon and the girls would come in splattered with goose crap all over their faces and clothes. The bike wheels would kick it up into their faces.

Like some of us, our geese shall be poopless. (or, shall poop on our neighboring farms.)

My point being that spinach happens to everyone

:lol: !!!!!!

OMG tika, the older dingo who doesn't get into things like Annie does but BENEFITS from it .....she just let out a ripper, such a loud one that it scared her and she ran out of the room......am sitting here cracking up.....

Donna, good for you....may I suggest you never buy your beads/etc. in bead stores....four to six times markup - - I go to the wholesale shows, of course, but anyone can attend (you don't need resale license in the front half - the size of a football field - of the show) in San Mateo every year, but they are nationwide.....at least buy from a catalog, such as Rio Grande or Fire Mountain Gems! I will post a photo of jewelry sometime.....just sterling with semi-precious gemstone and pearls (lots of chalcedony, tanzanite, iolite, raw, untreated rubies, peridot, turqoise, quartz, blah blah, every color and every semi-precious gem...lemon pineapple.....prehnite....amazonite.....SOMEBODY STOP ME.....) my jewelry's a little on the bohemian side.....I steal ideas from fragments.com, Sundance catalog, In Style magazine - - I do lots of the individually-lined sterling wire kind, like the rosary-style - tedious and time-consuming! HOpe to take a jewelry class soon, actually make my own sterling findings and things....it will consume me....

oh my gosh, I just hung up with one of my good friends,who told me to post this to you all - - - she is SO jealous of our cult and WANTS to be Celiac so she can join :lol::lol::lol: She calls us Silly Yaks and when I told her about the job application and the purple glittery bats, she said, I WANT TO JOIN...... :P

just love this, we will have bumper stickers in the cult farm:

SPINACH HAPPENS

:lol: I love it, SPINACH HAPPENS! :lol: Too funny about your friend...but understandable, we are unique and fun! :P I like natural stones too...years ago I used to dabble at making my own earrings so had a bunch of beads left from that. I still get free passes to the gem show at San Mateo...I think they have beads there too sometimes. I'm trying to NOT let this become an obsession like all my other crafty type things have become, but I have a feeling it will be hard. I can't wear earrings any more but love bracelets. My friend showed me how to crochet on a cruise last year...have I mentioned that I have 200 scarves in every color imaginable. :lol:
