WEll feel free to drop by my potty training thread and give advice then! :ph34r:

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...c=24856&hl=

Make them want it, don't do it before they're ready or you'll drive everyone involved crazy .... just give it up and go back to it in a couple months. Give him garbage he likes and won't normally get every time he goes on the pot. If it's #2 that's scaring him, when you can tell he has to go, force him to squat standing on the toilet seat, he will try to stand up, so you have to hold him squatting, he will not be able to hold it in.

Sorry, you can quote this on the potty training page if you'd like, but I'd rather not go there. Too scary. :o

Carla, :lol:

The potty training thread isn't that scary. I went over there and came back in one piece. Not that I had much to offer. :)

I don't know what I'd do if my sweetie was gone for a week. :( (Carla and Patti) The kids and I would drive each other even crazier. Talitha gets upset if her daddy isn't home by bedtime and if he happens to have an overnighter somewhere then she's up constantly (making sure I'm up until she goes to sleep).

I'm used to it -- he's done it for 15 years. He travels less since we've moved as Cincinnati is more central to his territory. He used to spend about 10 days per month out of town. This week it was a trade show in Florida, which is not in his territory.

I'm quoting this from another thread just because I wanted to comment on it....

I saw this and wanted to add that vinegar restores the ph balance of your skin... everytime I'm having skin trouble I use it, expecially if I'm burt from the sun... it's amazing stuff. (I use apple cider vinegar) And I have used it my whole life... long family remedy.

Celia,

That must be one of the reasons you still look 20-ish. :)

morning all from a sleepy dingo.....yikes, why am I so stinking TIRED all the time now??? can't stand this....but y'all have given me a great laugh today.....

Did he get his gluteus maximus out of here yet?

Richard's glutes seem to be here frequently....today he's in trouble though, I think.....RICHARD - give your wife a glass of wine and go do something silly and impractical! REFRIGERATORS??? no - - romantic dinner and silly movie!

Thanks :), though I doubt I'll sleep well (stupid insomnia! :angry:)

Melannen - hope you're feeling better - - I take DRUGS for insomnia, and probably always will....I had TEN YEARS of um, practically fatal insomnia, won't go through it again!!

Pantyhose--ugh! Can't remember the last time I wore those!

panyhose....ugh......haven't worn them in about a decade, my goal is to never wear them again in my life! (well, if I had a winter funeral, maybe some sheer dark hose - that would be IT) Besides, they don't go well with flip-flops and UGGS

why is it that you turn 40 or 50 and finally have the self confidence you didn't have a younger woman and BOOM! Nature takes it course and you are staring at a middle aged, slightly wrinkled, slightly saggy woman when you look in the mirror. You got it all together finally and BOOM! you're back to square one.....

Deb - profounder words have never been spoken.....except my confidence is fleeting these days....working on that.....

Dingo Girl- You are far too hard on yourself. You are GORGEOUS inside and out!!!!! Don't make me fly out there and whip your butt (unless there's already snow in Tahoe- than I can fly out there, whip your butt, kidnap you and we can go up to Tahoe, ski, drink cocoa, sit in hot tubs and find you a cute man!)

BEV - - you crazy mountain dog!!! oh my gosh, does anything sound better???? what will we do with the DINGOS???? (well my older girl IS a cross-country skier, quite the snow sprite, too bad mommy doesn't have the energy to take them :( ).....

Cosmos and trampolines and cotton candy.....dang livin' on the edge, aren't you Doctor Bev! ;):lol:

I have to say that you had me at *maple sugar cotton candy* :D That sounds soooo good!

:lol:

Oh maaaan :( First I miss the CBS news piece, and now I find out there were girls on trampolines here last night?! :rolleyes:

This is my luck :P

Speaking of luck (all bad) I'm hiding out. So much for the egtaway weekend :huh: The kids have gone to grandmas, but the wife is PMSing (anybody want to throw me some nuggets to help tame the beast?) and not in any mood for anything other than a nap and lots of personal space. On the up side we might go out later and argue about refrigerators to celebrate :(

Full moon... <_<

First of all...you can see the CBW news piece if you go to that thread - I just watched it and am forwarding it to all my peeps....

SECOND of all.....yes I can throw you some NUGGETS....Hersheys, that is....see my advice above :D

Makeup is for clowns. My girlfriend rarely wears any and that is just fine with me.

clowns.....methinks not.....makeup is for slightly perfecting and enhancing what God gave us, while making it look like we don't have any makeup ON - Clown makeup - - no - - we are HOT 40-somethings and all about subtlety, right girls :)

what else...Laura - - happy moving and we'll see you later! We'll be thinking of you, pop in when you get back....

Pixie girl is SO glamorous...shopping in Boston with her french manicure!!! If y'all could see me.....pj bottoms, wife-beater tank top, sweatshirt jacket.... :lol: Am wondering if I"ll bother to get dressed today......

I forgot everything else......see you later!

(OOOOOOOOPS - - just got busted for too many emoticons!!!!! now removing - what wasthe trick we learned in Rville about how to get around that - IT IS MAKING ME ERASE ALL THE EMOTICONS - -insert mad face here)

Thnx Vincent - am getting tested again....also thyroid.....I was severely anemic before, numbers were going up, I KNOW I'm not that bad now.

BTW cannot help you with potty training - unless your child has four-legs, lots of fur and would like to lift his leg when he pees..... ;)

so....tired.....want to sleep...................all day.................WHY AM I LIKE THIS??? sheesh, am no longer eating toasted Pop Tarts for dinner :ph34r: or a bowl of cereal - - healthiest diet of my whole life..... :angry:

Also might want to test for Hypoglycemia, do you have a home Blood glucose monitor? YOu can get them for about $20 at CVS, if you get the el cheapo store brand one. Comes with 10 test strips, plenty for the test (need 5 or 6 usally). I can teach you how to test your self with that test kit, its easy , medicaly regonized as diagonostic, but takes an over night fast + 4 to 6 hours testing durring the day. MOst of wich is just waiting till the next test, the actuall test takes only a 1 min or so....

I am quite convinvced I am hypoglycemic, however this seems to have improved as I've gotten older. AS a child, I used to almost black out when hungry - used to start crying and throwing a fit and my mom knew to feed me. Have even had a couple of boyfriends tell me this - - a direct quote from one of them: " I find if we FEED you, things go much better :) " But - I think I'm not eating frequently enough these days. I am not nearly as hungry being gluten-free and can go LONG stretches - 8 or 10 hours :ph34r: without food - - that is not good! Am eliminating sugar in my diet.....how will I do it....... :o

But there is also heartbreaking frustration in my life presently - and I think that contributes to it.....big old long fat stinkin' story that we simply WON"T talk about in our silly, fun thread...... ;)

okay kids....gotta start being productive today....

but one more thing - - OMG I made the most delicious nut bars - - was trying to make Bumble Bars - - bought bulk sesame seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds and dried cranberries - - chopped the almonds...added to the batch a tiny bit of grapeseed oil and a big dollup of brown rice syrup - used hands to mix it all up - spread it about 1/2 inch thick onto a pan - baked for 20 - 30 minutes in slow oven - - OMG I could eat the whole batch!!! really tasty! :)

So...vinegar is the way to go? :lol:

Susan,

Your homemade Bumble Bars sound good! I could see myself eating it by the fistfuls out of the bowl! :D

tried that.... not as good, the sesame seeds need to be baked or taste quite bitter! in my test batch made about six bars - half are gone :ph34r: tummy's a little tender - LOTS of fiber in these bars!

Celia is too sweet....she won't turn into a three headed gator.

Susan, your treat sounds good......pm me your story if you want to talk. :)

Patti, always good to see you.

My quiet house should erupt pretty soon, the kids should be home with Daddy shortly (unless they went to church service). They usually just go to Sabbath school. Seth is still sleeping and the house is nice and peaceful. He went right to sleep without the usual noise.

I'm tired all the time too. Actually, I've had two good days in a row!!!!! YAY!!!

If it's not your thyroid, read over the adrenal stuff we've been posting about on other threads. I think it's all inter-related, thyroid, blood sugar, adrenal glands, etc. The diet I've been on has addressed all three.

OMGosh, all this time, I thought you had a thing for gluten-free chicken nuggets!!!!! :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: I remember the Hershey thing from way back, but I've never called them nuggets, I know they ARE nuggets, but ....

Hi Julie!! :) Glad you could make it! colorado was last week, it's Utah this week (funny that I"ve never followed the 'dogs so closely until now :lol: )

I am going to go into the pub where my niece works. Would it be really awful to wear a t-shirt with a bulldog logo with a big black circle and line through it? :o:lol: my lovely symbol could speak for itself.....

Guest melannen

Thanks for the feel better comments everyone!

I'm feeling better enough to be able to stomach some rice. My biggest problem today is I'm in a very foul mood (gluten always brings out the b**ch in me). I'm just hoping to be over it by Tuesday night as that's when my knitting group meets and I really don't want to accidentally offend anyone :unsure:

Melannen - hope you're feeling better - - I take DRUGS for insomnia, and probably always will....I had TEN YEARS of um, practically fatal insomnia, won't go through it again!!

I'm scared of taking medication for it....I come from a long line of people addicted to prescription drugs :ph34r:

BOOOOO BULLDOGS!!! :P

c'mon- sometimes we all feel like nuts! Lord knows I act like one enough. :ph34r:

I'm really tired today too- crashed out for two hours. Uhmm...I'm guessing it was the post-maple sugar cotton candy crash.

Celia- You really are stunning! If you use apple cider vinegar, then I'm all over it. My face has been breaking out like mad lately. It likes Neutogena (the exfoliating one with soy in it0 but I don't want to use it anymore because I don't want ANY soy near me.

I used to use witch hazel but I'm gonna give your vinegar a try!

Susie- This thread doesn't have to be funny all the time. You can tell us your heartbreaking frustrations. Sometimes a girl needs a wee bit more than a fluffy dingo Woman cannot live by dingo alone (pretty close tho).
