'night Robbin.... :)

holy heck you guys, have to start winding DOWN to get to sleep, or else will be up all night and have a spinach of a day tomorrow...

and yes, the moon is VERY VERY full :blink:

I have never laughed so hard looking at a computer, ever, as this evening. God help the poor souls who wander in tomorrow...... :lol::blink:

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

When do you sleep between being up half the night and taking care of the children?

A big HUG for you.

I've got to get to bed too. I'm one of those that needs more sleep than some.

Well, let's see..... it should quiet down around 5 - 6 a.m...... doze off until around 8 - 9 a.m. when someone usually comes down and kisses my cheek (either Daniel, Connor or Rhiannon, I mean!). I pretty much sleep on the couch every single night now, if I was upstairs, I would be waking everyone up with my bathroom antics!

During the school year it is a bit easier, as the days that the boys go to school (they are going into SK this year), I can at least nap during the day to catch up on some sleep. Where I live, kindergarten kids go every second day, all day, instead of 1/2 days every day......

Miamia,

Have no words of encouragement that you haven't already heard, but I just wanted you to know that you have absolutely no idea how much I can relate to this statement. If it helps to make you feel better at all, I am SOOOOOOO in the same boat as you are........ except in your situation, you take one step forward (progress) then go backwards..... I just plain go backwards!!!! :(

Sending hugs to ya,

Karen

I hate to hear you are in the same boat- its not a very fun one. The steps forward are more mental- like I think I have figured something out -some key and I get really determined and work at it like crazy and then never really get any results. o me and you can walk backwards together. At least we won't be lonely!!

Gotta let dog out to poo and then feed her and the cats (who are soon to be homeless if they do not shut their little big mouths, lol. ) Why do I feel like I have a hangover every morning and I don't drink? Ugh. Maybe I should start. :blink: See y'all later.

Everyone who was sleeping last night- - The Dave is indeed the "Village Idiot" and way too fun to tease :D .

oh yeah- a village idiot- we needed one of those. So maybe when we do things- like eat things we know we shoulden't we can say we pulled a "Dave"
