Julie,

I tested low allergic for gliadin foods and have also cut them out....except for the millet flour for the bread....but I don't have that much. Usually if we have french toast.

I wish we could find a good bread without all the allergens in it, other than the oh so fabulous EnerG bread :lol:

Andrea, I LOVE the new picture of Seth, how adorable is my little King!!!!

Update............I got the job!! :D

Congratulations Jessica, great news :):)

:lol::lol::lol:

:o:o:o so scary indeed......

Susie Q!!! What? A drive by post?? What is the world coming to.........

We need the dingos to go out searching for our lost Rachelvillians :lol:

I have successfully eaten well today B):D Now all I need to do is refrain from eating the dough of the cookies which I am about to make :blink: The cookies are for tomorrow, but I need to make them today since they take three hours to bake <_<

Good job Morgan! Down the line you could make cookies with mashed fruit, maybe a little raw honey or pure maple syrup and it would be a way to have something a little sweet without having refined sugars. Just a thought :)

I'll be in there in a minute to taunt you ... I'll stick my fingers in the meringue, then say how yummy it is, then I'll eat a few more chocolate chips in front of you -- hee, hee.

We are going to have to have a mother/daughter intervention you two!! Carla you go to one corner of the room, Morgan you to the other...and behave!!

:lol::lol::lol:

I will never be able to catch up....but Morgan, why cutting out sugar??

I'm just curious. I saw the GI today (see post under pre-diagnosis) and he put me on a "no table sugar" diet. He gave me a whole list of things I should avoid, due to the oh-so-lovely ibs issue. But, I won't discuss that here.... just curious about the sugar thing.

And, Jessica!! Good news about the job!! I'm trying to find out what you are now doing...but can't locate the post!!!

Molly, quien es el hottie?? :lol::lol:

Sorry, no hablo mucho espanol, much to the bf's disappointment.

Who is he and can you bring him to Rachelville? :lol:

lo siento el vive en argentina he is married to the cutest woman ever and they were dating for 5 years at camp and last year they finally were engaged and then this year their engagement bands changed to wedding rings, they are so perfect for eachother, he also took me to the hospital when i re-tore my quad at camp, and doesn't speak english, but knows all the words to No Such Thing by John Mayer and he sang along...

I agree he is very cute though!

I also beat him in an eating contest 9 pieces of steak for me 7 for him! and he's not small

Just a trophy??? Trophy's are an excellent prize! I've gotten the tiniest trophies....some for 3rd place even but they still meant the world to me and I displayed them proudly in my room. :D

I've never gotten cash for anything...just little trophies, ribbons, t-shirts...stuff like that. I have alot of softball t-shirts cuz thats what they pass out to the winning team.

I'm kind of embarrassed to ask this but what exactly is drag racing? What are you racing in and where....on a track?? :unsure:

Rachel still has all the trophies in her room....like she's 10.... :D

And drag racing.... there are different kinds. There is the kind where you can bring your daily driver car, and run heads up (fastest car wins), or bracket.

Bracket is if my car runs 13.7 seconds in the 1/4 mile, and another guy runs 14 seconds, he leaves .3 seconds before me. Theoretically we should pass the finish line at the same time. Bottom line, whoever gets closest to their dialed in time wins. If I dial in at 13.7 and hit 13.8, i bust...and lose. If I hit 13.68 and he hits 13.9, I win, he's .1 off and I'm only .02 off our "dial in" times.

Hope that all makes sense. There are also people who run "tubbed" out cars or really "suped up" street cars that might not be street legal (engine modifications/slicks/exhaust, etc)

On top of that there are like full blown John Force alcohol dragsters that can get upwards of 300mph within 4 seconds..... :o

Yep. Connor on the left is almost blonde and Daniel is dark haired. Connor has blue eyes and Daniel has hazel/green eyes...... They are as different as night and day. Unbelievable, eh?

They are really cute! ;)

:lol: I don't exactly know what drag racing is either, I am thinking the smaller cars, go-cart thingys, and you drive really fast??

Drag racing is a straight line really fast! B)

Here is a link to where we race. http://ohiovalleydragway.com/

It is a place where you can race dragsters - those long pointy cars or you can race a regular race car. Unlike Bill, I race trophy & so does his dad. Some people race souped up cars but I race my Mustang Convertible that I also drive to work. It is an 1/8 mile track & it is bracket racing so the slower cars leave before the faster cars & therefore theoretically you should arrive at the same time.

It is not scary at all. I don't go fast enough in my car to have to wear a helmet. I just buckle in & go. Bill, on the other hand, has to wear this fireproof jacket & helmet & has roll bars & such like a regular race car you in Nascar races. It is really a alot of fun.

It seems like the time of day here in KY that I get on here everyone else must be asleep or something.

What times do you run in the 1/8 and what year is your 'stang? I'm on my 3rd, 03 GT Vert, triple black.

I have to clarify that is is not OUR restort in that we don't own it. We call it that since it was so small and intimate we felt we were there by ourselves.

And you were about to be my new best friend..... :rolleyes:

:lol:

Thanks....I'm definately no angel but its nice that I can *look* like one once in awhile. :lol: I think its been awhile since I've gotten dressed up for anything....its pretty much been hats and jeans for me lately. :rolleyes:

ohhh gaaaawwwwd, Angel and Rachel in same sentence :rolleyes:

j/k ;)

The Dave thinks I look better all grubby with a hat on....yogurt and milk stains all over my apron and dirty kneepads at work. :huh:

Not your typical guy. :lol:

I don't really like the milk and yogurt stains, but I don't mind jeans/t-shirt/hat vs. perfectly "girly" everyday, afraid to break a nail :rolleyes:

Shoot.........totally forgot about the rock climbing thing. Maybe a moat haha......that would be silly.....an island with a moat? LOL :lol:

:ph34r: She has a jet ski too! :lol:

I must have learned young....my Mom says I was always belching when I was younger and apparantly she didnt like it very much. :lol:

Of course I have no memory of this. ;)

:ph34r: I can't imagine you burping..... :blink: but it would "fit in" to the whole "yogurt/milk stain" thing you have going on ;) Attractive...... alien baby and all :lol:

My husband was quite shocked when we got married. He didn't know that girls belched or passed gas. :lol: Then he married an undiagnosed gluten-intolerant!!!! :rolleyes: I used to be able to outbelch anyone, but didn't, too embarrassed ... but hubby would always vouch for me that I could do better than whoever was challenging me. Now, I couldn't belch if I tried ... no wheat, no gas.

:ph34r: Good thing you didn't actually do it in public/contest! Haha, my tiny ex-girlfriend used to always pass gas right when we got in the checkout lane at the grocery store..... Everyone would look at me like I did it....just cuz I'm kind of a bigger guy :angry: ...... so to get her back, I would speak loudly and say "Michelle, geez, that one was really bad, what did you eat?" :lol: She turned RED everytime.....hehe

btw-where is our Village Idiot? The Dave-I love your puppies!!!!!!!!!

The idiot is here.... surprisingly he didn't get lost or anything! Thanks about the puppies...they're really fun...and dorky!

Good morning everyone :D I'm off to start my sugarless day :blink::huh:

:huh: Why would you do that! hehe, good luck!

Thanks Judy. I was the Director of a Pre-school program for low income kiddoes last year. Teaching little ones is a very rewarding job. I LOVE IT!! :wub:

Congrats on the job, sounds awesome....keep us posted! :)

I figured it'd come off as easily as it went on!! Plus, when you'd post what all you were eating, it seemed like you were on your last gluten-fling!! You probably won't eat as much now, too!! I gained 60 pounds when I was pregnant with Morgan, by the six week checkup, I had lost 50 without dieting (she was over 9 of it) -- all bloat!!

:huh: Why would you do that! hehe, good luck!

She only planned on it for one day, it wasn't a permanent change ... I think it was just because she's eaten SO MUCH of it lately! She made more meringue cookies last night to take to college with her. She'll gain the freshman 10 before she even gets there!! :D

Hey your cat looks like a penguin......or your penguin looks like a cat :lol:

Jessica.... maybe you can help me! =)

I'm actually homeschooling my daughter this year. She should be in kindergarten. But, due to her TINY stature - and a whole wealth of other issues, we've decided to hold her back this year and give her a chance to heal and grow. (Plus..... she's a late birthday) The K teachers, as well as her pediatrician (and us) all decided jointly that she wasn't ready this year.

I teach 2nd grade religion classes... and I LOVE teaching. I believe it was my "calling" --- but my husband and I started our family before we were "really" ready, and I ended up dropping out of college. :(

Hi Jayhawkmom:

This site should help you:

http://www.todaysparent.com/community/index.jsp

They have a forum specifically for homeschooling and the moms on this site are awesome. I have belonged there for years (although not in the homeschooling section.)......

Hugs.

Karen

I suspect the majority, if not all your weight, will come off quickly.

Is your picture a cat dressed like a penuin, or a penquin dressed like a cat?

Goodness you are a brave woman to homeschool!! So are you going to homeschool and then send her to K next year? Or on to first?

It is never too late to go back to school. So many universities offer many of their classes online. Emporia State (great teaching school) even has a branch up in KC just for their teachers!!! GO FOR IT!!
