Oh yes.. but, alas, I can not do anything with my cross eyedness... do you think they will notice?

Don't think so....not with that nose...I mean beak staring at them. :lol::lol:

Andrea, I hope you don't feel bad, then again, if you don't, how will you ever convince your mom a little is too much!!?? I'm going to my grandmothers on Tuesday, so I'm hoping all will go well. I told her not to be offended if we get there and I decide not to eat because of some contamination issue she didn't think of, that it's taken me a few months to learn how to take care of myself, that I can't teach her how to in a phone call. After our arrival, I'll be helping with the cooking, so all will be okay then.

She always makes meringue cookies for us, so I told her to get Enjoy Life choc chips or nuts so that I could eat some, too. She was very agreeable. And I warned her about no flour, no crumbs, no porous cookware, so hopefully all will be okay. I usually eat a couple dozen of those cookies myself!! :o:P

Gotta love those enjoy life cookies.....they are much too small. Very easy to eat too many. Sounds like we may have a Rachel problem too. :o:rolleyes:

Yes, my mom thinks we are being too picky. I've heard that numerous times over the years. My reaction is over within 24 hours normally and not that bad. I agree that she needs to understand that "a little" is too much for us.

No, not Enjoy Life cookies .... Grammie's homemade meringue cookies with Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips!!!!! I could never indulge in that many store bought cookies, I'm a cookie snob!!

You know I stopped over-indulging in single items once I got my weight up. I'd sit down and eat a whole bag of Ruffles ... now I'm down to a few chips at a time. I usually indulged in just one food, maybe that was my tummy's way of being easy on itself. Like "Don't eat ice cream and chips, only one or the other, please!!"

I used up all of my Enjoy Life chocolate chips and NO ONE carries them here. So, I email the gluten free store on this forum to see if they can send me a case or two of them frozen (remember I live where it is HOT). The lady was so nice, but she found out that they won't send any of the non frozen items in freezer boxes. I have to wait until this winter to order enough to last me a year. They are so good and taste just like the regular ones.

Who said the bird probably stinks? I took a bath this morning before I went to the grocery store. And I even fluffed my hair and put on my red lipstick.

I tried Retinol based cream once and got peeling skin with irritation.

It's too harsh for some skin types -

I've been letting nature take it's course as regards skin. The more I fuss with it, the more problems I create.

My husband and I stoped having Friday night dinner at my MIL and SIL's place for this reason (CC) and it was really due to carelessness and kind of blatant on SIL's part. Now when someone asks why we don't go there anymore I say that they aren't "kosher" . It got a few people confused when I jused that phrase in conjunction with Christmas dinner, but they caught on that I was talking about "CC" issues.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Well, here I am again, aging as gracefully as possible without losing my face. Do you goofy young'uns need instructions? I have a few secrets I'll be happy to share.

1. If there's a large mirror in your bathroom, never look into it when you're just stepping out of the shower! I haven't looked at my naked body in fifteen years.

2. Never look at yourself in the full-length mirrors in dressings rooms until you are fully clothed. Even then, do not look at your face under those flourescent lights.

3. Remember that all overhead lighting is your enemy. Remodel your bathroom to exclude overhead lights; instead install soft lighting on both sides of your mirror.

4. Put on your makeup in this soft light; go out and have a good time; and never look at your face in another mirror until you get home.

Do you get my drift here? Mirrors are not our friends. That's because we women see ourselves as we really are. :( Men, on the other hand, begin to lose all touch with reality after their 30th birthday. Somehow they become vision-impaired when gazing into mirrors. Do they see wrinkles, sagging pot bellies, multiple chins, shiny bald heads? No indeedy. They only see the bodies of the 18-year-old studs they used to be! And that explains why they believe the flattery of sweet young things looking for a sugar daddy. Men are hilarious! :lol:

5. Wear long sleeves. A few years ago one of my little grandsons was affectionately squeezing my well-covered upper arm, when he suddenly stopped and gasped, "Grandmama, are you OLD?" Thereafter I added:

5-B. Allow no upper arm squeezing. :o

Dinner time, so bye y'all! Talk to you later.

Cissie, you tore me up. I started on number one and lost it. How funny. Number five I have a hard time with. When it is 115 outside and I plan on being out for awhile, I HAVE to wear cap sleeves as it is just too hot. I just try and pretend that my upper arms (and lower arms) are when I was 20 - he he. I also try and keep them tucked into my sides while I am talking with someone. And since I am a talking ostrich, they never look beyond my beak.

Cissie - - - so fantastic. Yes, I know about all those things.....and there are mirrors all over the place here. Maybe I"ll just throw black cloths over each, mourning the passing of.....my youth. :ph34r:

Ehrin - - thank you for your input! Kinda crazy here....what must you think of us.....

But POO, it is really not fair to be 44 and STILL break out AND have wrinkles at the same time (my wrinkles are actually not bad.....and two people were astonished yesterday that I was 44 - nearly shrieked. Guess that was good).

These days, girls, there are just good days and bad, appearance-wise.....fewer good days.....holy cow.....I do NOT LIKE AGING one single bit......need to join a gym again and become at least physically very strong again.....THAT part I CAN control!

CArla - how is your dizziness - - must be from that evil bite thing you have to use......

CECILE - - dingbat - - here I am, ever-so-briefly, where are you now...you will be so sad....when you see that I"ve been here - - and you were not....... :( BUT IT IS SUNDAY, my favorite day, and I am a busy little dingo-girl here....painting furniture in teh garage, and worked up a full sweat. Very hot here - what was I thinking.....and there is staring, lots and lots of staring from two restless dogs who want to play.....later, much later when it is cool we are going to do this illegal thing we do here - - - run like wild dogs through the 'hood, it's totally against the rules, no leashes - - we do it when it's dark and have never been caught....ha ha ha ha :P:P:P

Oh Lawzy now my head is truly spinning. Or spinaching...? Here I thought this thread was about meds of some sort! Who knew?

well as you can see, darling Leah, it has devolved into lunacy......kind of scary, isn't it...... :huh:

Carla, Armetta, I'm always available to give helpful advice on True Life.

Cecile, you're as crazy as I am.

And is Dances with Rivers still in that garden? She will need coffee for her aches and pains tonight. Or . . . a nice box of frozen spinach?

Good night and pleasant dreams to all.

Cissie

Let's see, must address said instructions:

1. If there's a large mirror in your bathroom, never look into it when you're just stepping out of the shower! I haven't looked at my naked body in fifteen years.

Check ... once glanced back when I was stepping in and frightened myself and the dog after I screamed.

2. Never look at yourself in the full-length mirrors in dressings rooms until you are fully clothed. Even then, do not look at your face under those flourescent lights.

Check.... those rooms are pure evil :ph34r:

3. Remember that all overhead lighting is your enemy. Remodel your bathroom to exclude overhead lights; instead install soft lighting on both sides of your mirror.

Check.... this again is why I am angry at Thomas Edison... we should have stayed with candles.

4. Put on your makeup in this soft light; go out and have a good time; and never look at your face in another mirror until you get home.

Check.... once glanced in a mirror at the mall not knowing I was looking at myself and was thinking... good googly moogly she needs some make-up.

Hi party bird!

When do we get to see a picture of you again?

Inquiring minds want to know. :huh:

Headache is getting better after musty, moldy fumes from an old photo album that Mitch cleared the pictures out of. He promptly got rid of the old album and pages so it wouldn't stink up the house. :P

The list is on the new Rachelville 2 thread......I know how much you love to read those. :lol:
