There's lots of pounding and swearing and Nickelback music coming from below right now. I'm afraid he's going to start chainsawing his way through the wall like Jack Nicholson...Oh Raaaachel, I'm hoooome! Help!

Did'ya at least get a towel before the wall gave way? I'm sure the llamas needed a whole to look through anyway.

Voyeurism! :lol: :lol: :lol: The worst part about peeping in occasionally is that we make so little sense when continuously viewed, the occasional glimpse must be like watching One flew over the cuckoo's nest.

or maybe it's always like that....

Hi everyone-late posting here--busy day.

John's still sick- and not getting better. Jen was at work last night and knows this fab GI dr in our hospital and he has agreed to see JOhn. He cannot understand why this other dr is insisiting on more scans while a patient is in this much pain. John has not eaten since Monday--a nibble here and there and then he gets sick.

spent the evening with Jen and Landen we made dinner at their house after we spent time doing some spring shopping.

Heres a very unsilly thing- as I was leaving Jen's @ 9:15 I grabbed my phone which was on vibrate and hidden in my purse awasy from little curious hands....here I had 17 missed calls and new text msgs. So I clicked on the text msgs all from John- the 1st said call me ASAP and the next two said Help....I got scared with him the way he is....so i hurried up and called him- here he went out to switch the trash cans and got locked out....@ 8:45.....he had forgotten to unlock the bottom lock on the inside door but he had left that door open--Lucky came along and pushed on the door shutting it....locking John out in his boxers....and it is like 45 out.....so I rushed home....

not much else to report---finally the wind is dying down!

Goooood Sunday Morning, all!

Today is a crazy one for the books. . . . .My dad has gone back into the hospital - - same problems are back. So I will fit in another visit there today....spent yesterday evening there while he got xrays and CT scans.

One, perhaps two, final tourney games for the Wildcats this morning and this aft. Hope they win it all! My dad is very sad that he's missed the end of Sophie's season. :(

Annnnnnd. . . . .. another baby shower this afternoon, with another Baby Tatt Registry in place. Gad. I ignored it and got my niece several baby board books, an adorable li'l leather baseball glove and ball, and many sleeper/jammies, summer and winter.

There. That takes care o' THAT.

Astonishing thing - - I will manage to come on here at some point in the day. I simply amaze myself, sometimes.

:lol:

Amanda! That poor hubby o' your'n. . .. . ..!! Glad he finally got in safe and sound.

Uh, listen... .. .. ..just keep yer phone on "ring' at all times....even when at the movies, church, appointments. . . . . .. <_<:rolleyes:

It is currently bright and sunny. But the outlook for tomorrow is for precipitation that belongs, not in spring, but the season recently ended. Ten or more centimeters of snow. :angry:

You must be getting our weather (actually, I think we're getting yours). Here in the Detroit suburbs they're calling for 6 inches of the nasty white stuff overnight. Enough already!! My tulips and daffodils can't take anymore.

And no fears--it's not critic , but critique.

One implies self-important nincompoop with messy desk and bad diet. The other implies forward thinking liberals with fantasy life happy endings and plenty of Kleenex boxes. (I'll take the fantasy over the fast food any day.)

We don't meet anymore, anyway. It was a 2 year volunteer gig at my local library, all in good fun.

Jess! When does your li'l-thumbed neighboUr begin his works at your place?

Critic vs. Critique.. . . . . . . ..seems like the difference to me is simply the Anglo-Saxon world vs. that of the Mediterranean. . . . . . :rolleyes:

Actually, I have never heard of critique used as a noun, only a verb. I have critiqued SO many pieces of drivel in my life, I sometimes want to throw myself into the Rideau Canal.

Y'know, that kinda thang. :lol:

I'm hoping he'll show up Monday. We only get two more days of sun before the rain comes back.

So, my husband went to Ace Hardware this morning (3 blocks from our house) to get some Primer, and they couldn't scan his credit card cuz the power had been out since yesterday--coinkydink? I think not.

And dressing in front of those doe eyed llamas is just down right embarrassing <blush> we just don't do that sort of thing around here.

*********GOLD MEDAL!!!!!!!!!********

OMG.....In overtime.. . ... . ...I couldn't stand it.

Well.........my mom was at this game. She screamed much more than I did, and I was feeling no pain from the wine-swilling baby shower from which I had raced.. . . ... .methinks I was quite vocal, but my mother? Man . . . . ...

She stood at one point, after a very bad call on one of our players, and screeched,

I am a f*ckin'-TAS-tic fan!! :lol:

Um, nice variation, Mom . . .. . . ...

At one point Sophie was being shoved around by a couple of opposing defensemen (defensegirls) and my mother yelled, "Now, I am that goalie's grandmother!! You girls LAY OFF HER!!" :lol::lol:

ah. A former member of Lehman Brothers. You've been trying to switch high powered fashion from wool suits to llama suits by subtly incorporating hand made llammawear into your wardrobe. With the collapse of the financial market, and the onset of summer, you've put your LlamaCladAmerica dreams on hold for a while.

Well, I ate something very bad today (no idea what) and I'm feeling better, but I'm dehydrated and exhausted. I'm going to bed (Yes, it's only 7 o'clock).

I've got a boat load of work with a Tuesday deadline. Presumably Tuesday am, since it goes into what the boss is writing and his deadline is probably Tuesday pm. I figure if I wake up early, I'll go in early. Either way it's likely to be another 11-12 hour day.

nite all

Hey everybody. Jess, I hope you feel better soon! Hi to all the new people I haven't met yet!

Just stopped by to make sure everyone here knew about the Corn Chex thing. I found the post- I should've known it would have been been-there-done-that around here. :lol:

The boys and I are doing well. I mean, yeah there's always some new drama every other week, but I'm starting to think that's just how it's gonna be for quite a while. This past week was really hard for me- Wednesday was my 9th anniversary. (Do you think it was a bad idea to get married on April Fool's Day?) :rolleyes: But anyway, it's over, next week will be better.

I finally was able to find a job, albeit it is at what my mom calls "The Poison Factory" (McDonald's.) I work in the early mornings, and yes indeed there is biscuit flour EV-ER-Y-WHERE, all morning. So I don't know how long this is going to last. But I was desperate, and so far I haven't gotten sick. But I just started a week ago and I sure don't get my hands anywhere NEAR my mouth... I try not to breathe through my mouth either. <_< If I can just stick with it till I've saved up enough money for CNA school, I'll be ok.

BTW, just so everyone knows... it's the Biscuit Maker who makes the salads and the yogurt parfaits every morning, and she is, of course, covered head-to-toe in flour. :o

Gotta run for now. I think about you guys all the time! :wub:

    • You can always check to see how long the lab order lasts, if you'd like to continue eating gluten longer.
    • Might be something else in there, perhaps he ate something else with gluten, something was mixed in the chips, the chips were flavored or in a snack mix with pretzels. I get that way with gluten, but the last 2 times the gut issues render me unable to argue like that but I do go Mr. Hyde like =. Seems to be linked to my mental confusion that arises when I eat gluten the fog and looping of thoughts causes extreme anger and makes it where I can not connect things and think rationally leading to anger, outburst, random acts, and punching and breaking things out of frustration.
    • I hate to say it and be Mr. Negative ass here. But I had this exact same thought about having kids, I do not wish any kids I have to have my AI issues, and decided I would wait a few decades if need be for the new gene editing things they are working on so we can have them changed. Call me crazy.
    • Unsure but I would say wheat, when making that kind of soup you normally use wheat base flour as a thickening agent when preparing the soup. Often formed into a roux with the meat juices after cooking the meat and before adding the rest. Yeah I have issues with the pick up thing too, never accidentally ordered but I have to call them after every order to make sure they know it is me (manager knows me) and they do not put seasonings or sauces on stuff.   It is one of two restaurants in town I trust, but there are only two sides they do that are safe. I bring my own sauce, and main meal order the sides and a drink and go there to fee like a normal human sometimes. lol On a cooking note you can make your own using another flour, a deep nutty flavor like sorghum works great with this or garbanzo for the roux. You can also go and apply another technique where you take some roma tomato chop them up and stir them simmering with a bit crushing them with the ladle in the ban and it will thicken in to a roux like consistency. I find this last method pairs well with a cooking wine to deglaze and add brightness when finishing and can be used for flavorful soup bases or gravies.
    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.
