Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I'd suggest telling him you're not really ready to date right now, but seeing that he's an old friend, you'd love to get together with him. You are open to the possibility of it becoming something more, later. This way, you can develop your friendship, he can get to know your issues (celiac, non-drinking, etc.) and you can get to know his without dating getting in the way. If you decide in the end to date, you have a great friendship to build on. If you decide not to, you have a friend.

If he dated you 2 1/2 years ago and had his divorce finalized in January, was he in the middle of the divorce while dating you? Or did he meet, marry and divorce someone in that short time? I'd proceed with caution ... friends sound good for both of you for the time being.

Excellent, Carla. And Andrea, how I love your calm voice of MOther Hen reasoning also. :) I am SO on a path of health in every way, and NO ONE will dissuade me from my path. My biggest battle currently is with the

NUGGETS

:blink::blink::blink:

I will consider him as a friend, and do th ings on my terms.

Okay, calmer now...whew! Thanks girls!! what would I do without you, and all of you, including the guys....consultations on poop, food, family issues, nuggets, everything! Love surge..... :wub:

Nuggets are a problem that can cause some minor distress compared to drinking again, or gluten for that matter. Positive friends are always welcome. I said adios to my old negative friends years ago and have been much better off for it. Tis better to be alone than in the company of someone who puts people down to build themselves up.

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.

YES! Think of poor Cissie, and shut up for an hour a'ready!!! I'm only on page 326! Y'all were sooo full of spinach last night! :blink:

Cissie

Premature posting but just couldn't let this one go.

:lol::lol::lol::lol:

Cissie...I felt the same way last night. I started out more than 10 pages behind and everytime I'd get through a page another would be added. It took me hours to catch up.

OH! BTW - I told said bachelor that I no longer drank, couldn't eat gluten (didn't go into details), had been quite sick, etc. I truly don't think he's looking for any kind of relationship - I think going through his divorce was so stressful that he's quite gun-shy (as am I). He said something like - - you were always quite fun SOBER, and not to worry.

Carla's advice is much more sensible than mine. If I were you, I'd listen to her. Guess my raconteurial memories eclipsed my good sense! :P

Dear Dave (The),

We welcome you with open arms, and you ridicule the ferocity of our geese? I, in my role of Minister of Defense in charge of our miraculous, protective, Auxigro-detecting geese, deem it advisable to caution you thusly: Tiptoe lightly through our Rachelvillian tulips. The geese and I are ordinarily peaceful inhabitants. Don't make us have to hurt you! :ph34r:

Cissie

Yeah Dave....you dont want to mess with Cissie. Mock her geese one more time and she's gonna let you have it. B)

Tis better to be alone than in the company of someone who puts people down to build themselves up.

This is very well-said!!!! It is the reason I have not seen my mom, step-father, and sisters for over a year! You just reinforced a decision that was the right one to make and that I have the ocassional doubt about. I just knew I could not get healthy or raise kids with healthy relationships if I continued on ... anyway ... on to something more uplifting.

Pray for me, I'm going to Maggiano's for my daughter's birthday dinner. I had a dream the other night that I ate a pretzel at a party, then started crying because I knew I'd be sick for a week. With feeling so bad for the past two months (well, longer than that, but I was better for a time, then started feeling bad again), I'm really nervous about eating out. I know they do a great job there, and I've never gotten sick there ... I'm just getting paranoid about food I don't make myself. I'll have a great time, I know!

Yes, Esteemed Goofiness! A thousand times yes!!! A beautifully decorated room with padded walls.

Cissie

Ummm...we already have one of those rooms....for you know..anyone that might get a little "wacky". Julie and I decided it was a must for Rachelville in light of recent events. The room is padded and also contains a straightjacket...although I think the straightjacket is currecntly occupied by Miss Karen...until the full moon has passed. ;)

I love music, and find it always makes work of any kind go by faster.

Me too Patti. I cant be without my iPod while I'm working in the morning. It gives me an energy boost or something. I LOVE music...the radio is always on at my house. Gotta have it while I do the yard work too. Makes everything so much more enjoyable. :)

Cecile! So glad you're back! Are you all caught up with us?

I hate having to go to bed so early, and missing the parties!!! And I used to be such a night owl! ;)

Dog's wedding is on tv tonight, if anyone's interested. :)

My mind is wandering; I must eat before I go completely round the bend.

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

Hmmm, thanks...I guess???

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"

Miamia

Here is an example-

"Rachel often commits a 'dave' when she eats Edward and son crackers"

sorry rachel- no offense- as you know I too have fallen vicitm to these yummy things

Nice to meet you too! You've started a fad!

Great idea, Mia! Now "Dave" will go on the list of "Rachelisms"--right after "spinached" :lol:

So pulling a "Dave" and "spinached" are similar? That's not good...

Dave - I agree equal treatment for all construction workers. :rolleyes:

Finally someone who agrees....you must be a guy! :D

LOVE THE BATMAN REFERENCE!!!!

Of course...he's a classic caped crusader!

Although they shall not be shirtless, lol...we have a pre-established rule about clothing in Rachelville. :lol:

:angry:

Would that be Susan pulling a Chocolate Dave? :lol:

There's a chocolate version of me? hmmm :blink:

Holy Heck! There are dozens of plump, moist, gluten filled banana nut muffins (with cinnamon sprinkled on top) sitting in the break room at work right now...and GET THIS...noone is eating them!!

This is way beyond my comprehension....the things in life that are taken for granted! :rolleyes: Will wonders never cease?

Now...if it were me who could eat these muffins...well you can be damn sure I'd be walking around looking like Donna with crumbs all over my mouth and little puffs of muffin flying out everytime someone speaks to me. :D

I still havent heard anything back about my ultrasound. They said my doc would call in a day or two..its almost been two weeks now. <_<

OMG...."The Dave" is here......he is suppossed to be at WORK! :o

Mr. Dave, was the party a little too much excitement for you last night? Did Rachelville keep you from fulfilling your obligations of the day? Dont worry...I'm holding down the fort for ya. ;)

OH Gaaaaawd...he has become part of the wordage now. :lol::lol:

I wasn't supposed to be at work thank you very much! And I wasn't really here...was on the site but @ Michelle's Store. Thanks for holding down the fort anyhow though!

Now only 88 more pages to catch up on....

Okay... has there been any RED ALERT when I was gone?

Don't forget I'm the newscaster and as Cissi says I must cast around the news.

Nope, no RED ALERT....but Dave is back so things are bound to get to that stage again. :lol:

Be nice guys, I'm trying to play Oregon Trail on the computer with my daughter as well as keep up with this thread and cook dinner (although she's helping with that). :P

:lol: tiptoe on the tulips huh? What's better than roses on a piano?

Dear Dave (The),

I must also caution you thusly, I think Cissie carries a gun. A rumour I heard.

:ph34r:

Going to try to walk erect now and get the dingos to the orchard - - lots of staring here....

About the staring...I usually get it when I walk erect with dingos too....go figure ;)

I think Queen did "We Are The Champions"--could be wrong, though :huh:

Yep B)

OH HOLY HECK, just got asked out on a DATE, someone from my past, via email....scared....very scared.....deer in the headlights.......hold me...........no no not scared of HIM, scared to go out with all of my - current issues, no, can't go there, no, can't eat that, no, don't drink, what will I wear.....etc. etc.

HE HAS A CABIN.........help me........

Awesome! Just be upfront with him and tell him what's going on....if he's a decent guy he will understand and it won't phase him....

And a cabin is always nice....No need to pitch a tent if you have a cabin :P

OH! BTW - I told said bachelor that I no longer drank, couldn't eat gluten (didn't go into details), had been quite sick, etc. I truly don't think he's looking for any kind of relationship - I think going through his divorce was so stressful that he's quite gun-shy (as am I).

iPod's are great at work!? up until 6 they are! ;) and you wonder about the word slacker??? hmmm :lol:

Dave... I seeeeee you...

nu-huh, I'm hiding! shhhh!

Nope, no RED ALERT....but Dave is back so things are bound to get to that stage again. :lol:

Be nice guys, I'm trying to play Oregon Trail on the computer with my daughter as well as keep up with this thread and cook dinner (although she's helping with that). :P

So now I'm just associated with trouble? GREAT!

Oregon Trail? That reminds me of the game from like my 3rd and 4th grade.... is it like really old looking and each pixel is about a half inch by half inch? haha.

Hopefully you're playing a more modern version!

Oh, that's right, you are trouble, trying to break R-Ville rules. ;)
