I coach my boys soccer team and I am constantly mixing up the kids names. It's gotten to the point where they don't respond immediately when I call out instructions because they are waiting to see how I'll correct myself first.

My Dad (who surely had this, too) used to run the list of all our names before he got to the one he meant. He'd start with my mom's name, then my sister's, then mine then my niece's....it was funny back then, but at least now we know why he was doing it. 

We still do it with each other just for funzies in his memory.  :D

My latest repeated FUBAR was leaving the tea kettle on and going to bed.  Fortunately it almost always had enough water in it that it didn't go dry by morning.  Maybe once or twice tho.  I used to have dyslexia and mix up  numbers fairly often.  But not much problem with that now.

 

The door frame attacks are not something they warn us about in safety classes.  Those things are viscous! :)

I have a heavy duty kettle that has survived a boil off a few times... it's a bit discoloured now... has character.

I once fell asleep making beef stew. Fortunately it was in a very resilient non-stick pan that survived the ordeal. The stew on the other hand... not so much.

You guys must sleep like the dead to not hear a whistling tea kettle squealing like that.... Lucky dogs!

Nah, I managed to boil my kettles off while I was up and about in the house, walking by it repeatedly. It has no whistle, just lots of steam.  LOL

well, that makes more sense if there is no whistle, but your wallpaper may have peeled a bit and you probably got a nice facial and hair curl out of that

misty air? :lol:

Oh no, it would whistle like a wolf if I had the flame up high.  But I always keep it very low, so no whistling.  I don't mind the tea water taking a little longer to get hot.  If it takes awhile that's fine.  I usually keep it half on and half off the burner so it warms up even slower.

 

The bear was fun.  But who can resist a Lady with a feather?

My bunny is up all night, every night, playing. On top of that my husband sounds like an entire army of chainsaw murderers when he sleeps. It is a miracle that with my earplugs I can even hear an alarm go off in the mornings. Sleeping with them takes some getting used to, but it sure beats going to jail for murdering your husband because you can't sleep. :lol:

Not knowing what a grunion is until I read further along in your post, I had

at first assumed it to be something local to you like Bigfoot or the chupa

cabra, and was very interested to see what photos you came up with!

they are little silver fish that come up on the beach to lay their eggs...sad to say we didn't see one and we checked from the tip of La Jolla to the Jetty in South Mission Beach -- (pacific beach in san diego) -- no little silver fish..hoping they choose tonight...but sadly I'll be camping in the local mountains so that I can spend tomorrow watching pro bike riders pedal up the mountainside.

 

going to turn in a couple pictures of me and beautiful empty beaches taken at 1230 and 230am pt -- along with an essay on reasons why the grunion no longer run...i'll get a couple points and that is all i need as long as i ace the final :)

 

will try to post one of the photos of me flipping off my professor with a big smile when i get back from camping!

 got this today in an email. Maybe it isn't a celiac thing after all. :lol: maybe it's just us.

 

 

 

A.A.A.D.D.- KNOW THE SYMPTOMS!
Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. 

This is how it manifests: 

I decide to water my garden. 
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
 
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. 

As I start toward the garage, 
I notice mail on the porch table that 
I brought up from the mail box earlier. 

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. 

I lay my car keys on the table,
 
Put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
And notice that the can is full. 

So, I decide to put the bills back 
On the table and take out the garbage first... 

But then I think, 
Since I'm going to be near the mailbox 
When I take out the garbage anyway, 
I may as well pay the bills first. 

I take my check book off the table, 
And see that there is only one check left. 
My extra checks are in my desk in the study,
 
So I go inside the house to my desk where 
I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking
. 

I'm going to look for my checks, 
But first I need to push the Pepsi aside 
So that I don't accidentally knock it over. 

The Pepsi is getting warm, 
And I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. 

As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, 
A vase of flowers on the counter 
Catches my eye--they need water. 

I put the Pepsi on the counter and 
Discover my reading glasses that 
I've been searching for all morning. 
I decide I better put them back on my desk, 
But first I'm going to water the flowers. 

I set the glasses back down on the counter ,
 
Fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. 
Someone left it on the kitchen table. 

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,
I'll be looking for the remote, 
But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, 
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, 
But first I'll water the flowers. 

I pour some water in the flowers, 
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor. 

So, I set the remote back on the table, 
Get some towels and wipe up the spill. 

Then, I head down the hall trying to 
Remember what I was planning to do.
 

At the end of the day:
 
The car isn't washed, 
The bills aren't paid, 
There is a warm can of 
Pepsi sitting on the counter, 
The flowers don't have enough water, 
There is still only 1 check in my check book, 
I can't find the remote, 
I can't find my glasses, 
And I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
 
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,
 
I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, 
And I'm really tired. 

I realize this is a serious problem, 
And I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.... 

Do me a favor. 
Forward this message to everyone you know, 
Because I don't remember who I've sent it to. 

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!
P.S. I don't remember who sent it to me, so if it was you, I'm sorry

    • Hi all. Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this long post. I'm a 23 yo female.  I have had quite the year in terms of health issues. here's a recap, which actually starts senior year in high school: may 2012 - had horrible bouts of constipation that came out of no where. something I had never experienced before. tested positive tTg IgA = 38.3 where >20 was positive. I also had Gliadin antibodies and EMA tested which were both negative. Important to note: I did not see these test results until this past November! my pediatrician never told me or my mom, I just discovered them in my online portal.   october 2015 - still dealing with random periods of horrible constipation. they seemed to correlate with stress. always seemed to have terrible canker sores. History of real bad migraines. Had another tTG IGA test which was now negative.  March 2016 - had barium follow through xray to see why I am always constipated and irregular. nothing abnormal with this test.  April 2016 - got seriously injured from running. shin splints that made it impossible for me to even walk to class. was prescribed ridiculous amounts of ibruprofen and naproxen (800mg twice a day) probably the cause of my gastritis June-August 2016 - shin splits are not healing. doctors run slew of tests to see if I have a malabsorption issue or blood clotting issues, I had positive anti ccp antibodies (this is a rheumatoid arthritis blood marker) and iron deficiency (though not anemic). Another celiac panel was ran and DGP was negative and tTg was BARELY positive: 4 where >=4 was weak positive and >10 strong positive. This time I had an endoscopy which found intestinal metaplasia of the stomach, gastritis and duodenitis. no villi blunting so I was told no celiac.  September 2016- was prescribed prilosec for the metaplasia. I thought screw it, I'll try eating gluten free for 8 weeks. I felt GREAT. first time in forever that my stools were normal and regular and my stomach was emptying it self in a normal timely manner. Not sure if this was from the diet or the prilosec. october 2016: had a little ER trip after a night of drinking due to brown colored urine - had high billirubin in urine, was not told what this meant, I'm assuming alcohol poisoning  November 2016 - Weaned off prilosec. found those strong positive tTG IGA blood lab from high school, freaked out, and demanded I be re tested. Did gluten challenge for 12 weeks until February 2017 and re tested, tTG IGA was negative, B12 was borderline very low, still have iron deficiency and low vitamin D. EMA was never tested.  summary of symptoms I've had: constipation, stomach takes forever to digest, canker sores, iron deficiency, borderline low B12, low vitamin D, gastritis, migraines, anxiety, tingling numbness and bone pain in lower legs--> possibly due to shin splint injury not healing properly. keratosis pilarsis(chicken skin) on my upper arms which I've had for as long as I can remember. Moodiness --> I can be a real grouch when my insides are bothering me.  Currently: I feel like crap. My shins aren't healed after a whole year.  I've been prescribed pepcid because my primary suspects the metaplasia/inflammation/ulcers are not healed. I often have pain on my right side abdomen below the rib cage, is something wrong with my liver? am I a hypochondriac at this point? Lately I've been having very fatty oily stools that stick to the toilet bowl. I know this is a sign of malabsorption, heck I lost 3 pounds in 10 days this month, obviously not on purpose! I'm 110 pounds, I'm going to evaporate! My primary told me this week to try  the pepcid along with gluten free and dairy free diet, I am to report back in a month. I'm seeing a rheumatologist next week to sort out the positive anti ccp test, I'm not sure if I should ask to get celiac retested( i know i have to eat gluten for this) and ensure the EMA and DGP are done. I've only had one completely complete panel (in high school) and since then 2 negative ttg iga's and 1 barely positive. What the heck? I just want one day where I'm not worried about how much my stomach is going to hurt. I'm only 23, this has been consuming my life for the past 5 years.   
    • For me rice became a problem for a couple years.  Grapes were a problem also.  Neither of them are a big problem now.
    • Just heard from someone who got one.  Hers was heated in the original bag.  I guess not all Starbucks have well trained employees.  Sigh.  We must always be vigilant
    • The thing I saw said they are supposed to be able to heat them in the little package they come in.  Then just hand you the packaged sandwich.
