Thank you everyone! It's great to be a part of such a warm, caring, loving board.

I just saw this thread......don't spend a lot of time perusing the board early in the day. :)

Seth thinks he's ready for 4th grade math....I bought ahead on some books on ebay for my school curriculum and he's into them. :lol::lol:

OK, got Seth outta here and Talitha is feeding him lunch. I guess we'll delay her afternoon class start. She doesn't like penmanship and that's the next class. She loves to feed her brother but maybe she's stalling....she has a test today. :P

Rachel and those who mentioned chocolate.....

Mitch won't go for ice cream. We did have peach crisp a few nights ago since I had peaches that needed to be eaten. I think we still have a few chocolate chips though. Micah's birthday is next week so I want to save the brownie mix for him. Mitch called twice this morning while he was waiting for his truck to be loaded. We have a calling card that he uses....no cell phone. He doesn't expect to be home before dinner so we are celebrating tomorrow for my birthday dinner. I started the tradition of favorite meals for birthdays. Don't know what the kids will do this year being gluten free. I have recipes subs I can try though. :)

Carla,

We want to take a field trip down to see Noah's ark and the sanctuary lifelike exhibit about 4 hours from here. Just not to keen on totally messing up Seth's day. Although he'd probably be fine with naps since the car ride would be so long. There is also a wildlife safari next door to that. If we go before Micah turns 4 (next week) then we'll save on his admission charge.

Julie,

No special plans. I remember my mom had a 40th birthday party and I was kicked out to a friend of my parents for the night so they wouldn't keep me awake with all the noise. When my parents built that house they put in a teakwood dancefloor. That may have been one of the few times it was used. Mainly my brother and I, along with friends played in the basement where the dancefloor was. I still miss that house. :)

Evie,

I accept. Let's just celebrate the whole weekend! :huh::lol:

    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
    • Ha, Ha!!!!!!  If I wouldn't get in trouble for practicing without a license, I would!     I get it because that is what they did to me for years.  I never had acid reflux but had enough other symptoms that all screamed Celiac but no.........they told me that my severe stomach pain might be acid reflux so take this script and go away. They never even tried to figure it out past the 10 minutes allowed for the appointment. I'll never forget one doctor that I pushed back on and told her I was not there for meds but to find out what was actually wrong and she got so mad she left the room and never came back. All they kept doing was trying to shove pills down my throat.   I am guessing that the procedure is the one where they tighten the sphincter muscle at the entrance to your stomach? I know so many people who had that done because it's become so common to push that if the meds aren't working well. Follow the money........ If acid reflux becomes that bad, then you have to start looking at food, period.
