Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Congratulations, Picard!!!! You can never have too many women in the family :)

Not that I'm biased...

I just "took" some phenergan, so I'll be passing out and become incoherent pretty soon. Doesn't take that long to get from the butt to the head :rolleyes:

Yeah, still don't know what it is, my mom is both worried and at a loss. This has been going on a long time and robs me of at least a day's worth of spoons. :(

OK, I'm done whining :unsure:

Well, I was just being a little funny. I too many sisters (I am the lone male), nine nieces and only two nephews.

And one crazy little 2 year old boy!!!!!!! So, I am happy I have a son. Just not looking forward to a teenage daughter. I know what my sisters did to my poor dad!

My wife is very happy, she was hoping for a girl. I to be honest was just hoping for one!

Susan...I just saw what you wrote underneath your girls! Do your Dingoes love chasing squirrels or something? Here in R-Ville they need to be focusing on geese...not squirrels. :lol::lol:

OK...ok...we will have squirrels for the girls. :D

Picard, What wonderful news--congratulations! :)

Celia, my amazing twin, how do you ever manage to keep us and our stories all straight? You will make a great newscaster :lol: You are already a great friend ;)

Cissie--The Poland Spring is flat--just plain water (I don't like the fizzy stuff, either) :)

Chelsea--This whole ordeal has been so hard on you--get some sleep and I hope by the time you read this, you're feeling better. Only a month to go :)

Nope, not the makeup, I've been using it a while. Besides, I'm always flushed :rolleyes:

I just don't know anymore. Isn't there somewhere I can just, I don't know, turn my body in for a trade?

The SED is used to measure inflammation. It's one of the diagnostic tests they do for Lupus--my mom's was right on the border--one doc says yes one says no. Anyway, I looked this up for you to read--

That said, try not to worry too much about this--just the Celiac causes some of the same autoimmune symptoms.

(Raising my hand) "I"!

I think Julie is the perfect choice--she has that elegant, regal look :D

Anyway Rachel, you are president and would not have time to devote to both positions. :lol: I just found out that I'm your VP! I'm honored :D

President usualoy isn't the regal anyway,

Picard...I had a daughter 2 year ago, and she is the JOY of my life :wub: She is one of the two best things that ever happened to me (the first of course is my dw)

Robin -- I CAN fix a toilet with a hammer, but then it is not so much fixed as out of order :lol: I have a pretty good tool kit, and am learning how to fix most things.

Cissie -- Those ARE some special geese. I am impressed. The only ones we have here at home are loud and s*** all over the golf courses.

Talk to you all soon. There is so much happening here it takes me forever to read it all.

Has anyone ever noticed a correlation between meat from animals that eat grains? I was just wondering because when I went wheat free, I would only eat grass fed cow. Cows are not supposed to gorge on grains like the cow owners think. Their bodies are meant to eat grass, therefore producing a much healthier piece of meat that has much higher omega 3-6-9.

I didn't know if I was being anal or not!

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

Everyone's cracking me up here again...I love R-Ville. :D

I'm gonna go to the store and get more ice cream. :D

Hopefully I'm not overdoing it but I didnt feel so bad today when all the customers were coming in out of the heat to buy their ice-cream. I'm like...."oh yeah...ice cream huh? Big deal...I can eat that too....gonna have some when I get home, matter of fact." :P

:lol:

Yeah...I'm talking alot of smack now but lets see how I'm doing next week. :huh:

See....this is why I cant be the queen...I'm just not regal at all! :P

I leave you guys alone for a little while and I come back to find I have not only been voted Queen and Greeter of Rachelville, but somehow I am listed as the Governor as well, how did this happen? :lol::lol:

I'm a little embarassed about the Queen thing, everyone has been so kind with their comments, but in real life I am so far from queen material, it's a little hysterical! As long as I don't have to be a stuffy queen, or a look down my nose at the common people queen, if I can be a queen who is able to wear jeans or capri pants, and tank tops and running shoes, flip flops, or go barefoot (no gas station bathrooms of course), and just be my laid back self and hang with the townsfolk, then I will accept the crown. I'm not sure if this is the kind of queen you want :huh:

Oh, and rinne (I think tis you who inquired) I already have a King :D ........but if we need one in our cult/farm fantasy land, I could bring along my traffic cop. Patti mentioned we needed one, maybe he could double as the King? :lol:

Donna- I am so happy about your test results!!! This is such great news :)

Chelse- Mystery stomach muscle spasms? Could it be possible, another alien baby??? :lol:

I'm sorry you aren't feeling so great. When I eat gluten, and everything else along with it, I just get worse and worse everyday, typical and normal symptoms are magnified and mystery symptoms seem to come out of nowhere. I bet you are counting the days, hours, minutes until this gluten challenge is over. I think once you can eliminate it again things will fall back into place and normalize soon for you. Hang in there!

evie- I am so sorry you aren't feeling good either. I hope you rest up and take good care of yourself and join us in Rachelville when you can.

Celia- same goes for you, join us in Rachelville when you get tired of spoiling that baby, which will be never so hmmm, wonder if Celia will return? :lol:

Susan- Thanks for sharing your great news! You have accomplished such great things with your sobriety and puting a negative relationship behind you, all this at the same time as battling with celiac? Amazing! Congratulations for all that you have triumphed over, this is just the beginning to great and positive things.

p.s. your dogs sound so sweet. I love the story about the one, Annie I think, who goes to the bathroom with you everytime!

Mango- Every time you say you are leaving I am so sad :( I will miss your posts on this forum, you always share such valuable information and support, as well as lots of laughs here in Rachelville. It won't be the same without you, but I know you will have a wonderful adventure, and promise to pop in when you can!!!

Patti- and anyone else this might concern, I tried the Giovanni shampoo and conditioner today for the first time and so far so good. I need to test it out for a couple of weeks for me to see for sure if it will be a keeper, but I like how it made my hair feel really soft and the curl is light and springy. Very promising! So glad your water challenge is going well.

Picard- Congratulations, little girls are sugar and spice and everything nice :)

Cissie- I love your humor and way with words, I'm so glad you have joined us.

Have fun eating your ice cream, enjoy every last bite. What kind ya gonna get??

I have a question, are we sick in Rachelville, or is it a place we can eat anything we want?? I know we have organic farm land and free roaming grass fed cows that provide us with raw unpasteurized milk, and that everything is clean and pure of chemicals and additives and nasty poisons, and loonies of course, where all is peaceful and good..............but do we get to eat ice cream and corn, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and chocolate, and anything else in real life that makes us all sick, and NOT get sick???

April,

Welcome to Rachelville. I do hope you will become a regular. :D Since I've left the vegan diet I've only eaten 100% grass fed beef, I'm not against natural which is mostly grass fed though I prefer the 100% grass fed. I believe the 100% is much healthier for you, and you are right about the omega's. I used to eat the regular stuff....about 10 years ago. What I've noticed with this is that it is soooooo much leaner. Hey, you might be on to something....maybe cows are so sick (aside from deploreable conditions) because they have celiac disease too. :P I do know I've read they need antibiotics because of packed conditions as well as all the grain which they weren't meant to eat.

Good luck to everyone doing the water challenge! I'm a total believer in the water challenge! I stopped using my water filter and it's great!

Im ok I have been one the meds for 3 days now and unlike rachel they did make me tired- whichI can handle but I also had a reaction to something I ate - it was stupid - lunch meat it was organic turkey but I haven;t been able to handle turkey latley so it could be that or something that was in it - it just sounded good but I am going back to being really careful now!!!

Sometimes it just seems crazzy that food can make me so sick - I don't believe it and than I stupidly eat something I'm not sure about and BAM !!!

Miamia

miamia- I know, it doesn't makes sense that all these foods make us so sick, and things that are suppose to be so healthy and good for us. Go figure! I hope you get to feeling better and hopefully soon the meds will kick in and do their magic so you can have more to eat and not feel so sick. Hang in there!

Shouldnt the King be the husband of the queen ?

I think you are getting a little too technical, this is Rachelville, remember :lol::lol:

Plus, look at his dimply cheeks and precious smiling face, how can you resist?!?!
