Pixie, welcome - - OMG tell us why you look THIRTY in your photo, I thought you were that age, why are your thighs so skinny????? :huh:

I am so touched by you girls wearing purple....great photos Cecile and Robbin (we get to see you!)....so sorry about this young Rachel and her family....glad her mom has found some support :(

I don't have time to write, gotta go work for that chaotic writer I work for occasionally....imagine ME, trying to put order into HER life....ha ha ha ha :lol::lol::lol: (somehow I am able to do this) -

am about to blow-dry the hair - we will see the reality of things -

Carla - you are right - she cut MORE than I wanted - I don't WANT to post a new photo now!! :angry:

the botox - the one who scares me the most is actor Ray Liotta - saw him on a talk show and he looks FREAKISH - can't really smile any more - what is up with THAT?????

You have to. Have your friend you help out take it. :) Do you have a camera phone? They're not the greatest, but that's how my avatar was taken. Morgan took it. Adam took pics of just me, but he hasn't emailed them to me yet.

Hi everyone,

Checking in from my desk at work. I'm sufficiently recovered from my surgery to go back to school (I'm a teacher and athletic director) and am now here on my day off catching up on all kinds of stuff that didn't get done while I was laying on the couch and sitting at my computer at home.

Susan - sorry your hair is too short, at least it will grow! And I'm sure short is better than green!

Hey Richard - I see you peeking in here again. We're all going to tell your wife!

Hi Liz--

Glad things are getting back to normal for you. Hope your desk isn't too full of things to take care of--I know they have a way of building up fast :)

Richard, are you going to say something, or just read?

I was just taking a head count... not quite 40 of you in here...False advertising if you ask me. <_<

Anybody own a pair of these?

No, it's because we're 40 something years old, so there are two reasons you don't fit in here!!! Now, be a good boy and go play with your Power Rangers .... it's pretty clear you don't actually work!!!! LOL

Those pantyhose are hysterical. I'm so glad no pantyhose is the syle, I hate them!

Carla, I love your avatar. Everytime I look at your husband it makes me laugh. Was he just being cheesy for the camera?

Patti - thanks. My job-share partner kept the desk organized and kept things going pretty well. But I have zillions of things to do with trying to get progress reports out and organize the upcoming basketball season.

First you want me to say something, now you want me to skidaddle...geessh.

I'm actually hard at work today, I'm catching up from 4 days of goofing off...or is it that I'm catching up on my goofing off....sometimes I can't tell the difference :huh:

Yea, he usually makes that silly face in a picture!! Of course, even though I know he does, it still always surprises me! His Sam's Club card even had that face, but it was of the more "I'm annoyed" variety, but still the big eyes. Cashiers would laugh when he'd give it to them! He made silly faces in most of the pictures taken of him as a little kid, too, so I guess you could say he's never grown up!

I'm 48, but don't act it -

can't wear nail polish, do

my own hair (to cover up

the white-morticia streaks)

and play soccer a lot therefore

don't watch a lot of movies. I

kinda stopped reading somewhere

around the movie thing, but had

to reply to the head count issue.

B)

There are more of us than you think!

The Rach I am referring to in the avatar is a beautiful young girl who passed away this weekend from cancer and her mother requested that her friends wear purple today since it was her favorite color, so we are all wearing it to celebrate her life. :)

I haven't been over to DS much, but I've seen her picture. She was very young wasn't she. I didn't realize she had passed away or was that sick. :(

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.

Susan, do you have a web cam? Or, do you have a normal camera and a scanner? You could take a picture of yourself......Susie (my 14-year-old) does it all the time, just holds the camera out with one arm.......don't know how she manages, but takes nice pics of herself that way (you know, narcissistic teenagers :rolleyes: ).

A few years ago I had my hair cut, hated it because I thought it was way too short. Now I look at the pics from then, and think it was beautiful, and always cut it that length now! So, in reality it might be perfect, and you're not used to it. Let us be the judge!

Nope, all girl. I just grew up with 5 brothers so I don't communicate like a girl.

hey everybody....I hate my hair :angry: SO NO, no picture, not yet....will take a couple of months to grow some length - - am feeling hideous - - thought it was good yesterday, but it was just all fluffy and weird from her extremely arduous blow-dry - - might have to throw some toner on it to tone down the highlights in one area.....how taxing - - - may call this crazy girl who did it and charged me an ARM and a LEG - -

I took some photos on my camera phone - deleted all - will not post them! I don't care how mad you guys get - - - :P Ursula I don't have a scanner- - if I did, I would scan only the gorgeous photos! :P

Richard - you're SO in touch with your feminine side!! Went to the gynecologist (this should scare our one lurking male) :lol: and she is putting me on the pill, holy cow (has not been a good experience for me in the past - cried every day) and TOTALLY OFF sugar (what???? :o:o:o how will I survive?) off caffeine, onto B6 supplements.....testing thyroid, hormones, other stuff. we'll see what happens....thinks I am NOT in MENopause or peri-MENopause in any way - - that was good news.......I am just tired of being SO tired and so.....blah....I miss my fun and extremely goofy self.....

Donna - OMG I had a chocolate Bumble Bar today...quite good but I think I like the original flavor better...have all the ingredients now and am going to try and make my own... :D

see you guys - - Cecile - it's our big night again, rolls around once a week - that's right, Gray's Anatomy - -

Hi Jestgar and Alicia! welcome....
