It's a lot easier to make poor choices if you know someone will rescue you. I still think the only help you should offer your brother is teaching him to manage things better. Digging yourself out of holes teaches you to avoid them in the future.

Your decision to help your daughter makes sense. You feel like she's beginning to act like an adult and you want to encourage that. I would still make them pay rent, but you could have it be by putting money into a college fund for the baby. Even if it's only $10 a month, they'll be aware that what you are doing is nice, not an obligation.

Here I go again agreeing--but this is such excellent advice!

Not feeling well today :( While I was out I bought some Pacific chicken broth and I'm going to use that as a shortcut to have some homemade chicken soup later. Will add me own veggies and chicken :)

Take the class. It's not like you've had a carefree life and this is just one more foolish indulgence - you have earned this.

Couldn't agree more!!!

Dang, she's good!!!

Tis quite a pleasure actually. You can do it alone, or with someone special near you. Try putting on some music you really enjoy. Maybe light a few candles, and then, just........go for it! You'll be so happy when you achieved excellence! You'll want to do it over and over again! Just don't forget the pleasures of plussing other people. We all need variety, after all.

:lol::lol::lol:

. . . and don't forget the golden rule:

Plus unto others as you would have them plus unto you.

My niece (not mentioned previously) just got a degree in Latin and Italian. But even better, she just passed bartending school! Which one do you think will actually support her? May have to invite her to KC to demonstrate her education. She can give all the drinks Latin names.

I know..... I'm too much of a softee. But truth be told......I've turned down my brother many times. When he lost his apartment he needed help moving all his furniture into storage....from a second story apartment. He knows I have fibro. And my husband, with one leg, has enough trouble with stairs as it is. There was no way. A couple months later he told me he almost committed suicide that day. Talk about a guilt trip! <_<

.. . ..I plussed him and I didn't even see his face. . . . . . ....

....or his thumbs! :P

OMG.. ... . :unsure:.... . ... ..now, is it possible for the Plussee to view who the Plusser is?? Mygawd, he cannot know that it was me. .......how embarrassing. This would take away the whole mystery, the entire magic of it being some sudden, crazed action by a fellow member ... . ....

Do y'all think I may regret this in the morning??

Now, divulging who I've anonymously plussed seems somehow........ . ..just wrong. I have NEVER been a girl to plus and tell. . . ... . ....

Soooo sleepy! Took full advantage of the one sunny day we've had in weeks. I'm too tired to get up and make dinner for my kids. Would probably just do a cereal night if dd didn't have a friend over ;) It was a great day and my first modeling chocolate rose didn't turn out half bad--not picture quality yet, but maybe tomorrow ;)

My DD has one there....cat's eyes and whiskers. I know she said it was more sensitive because there's no fatty tissue there, but I don't know the extent of the pain.

I got an airbrushed one today for 3$. It's scented and everything :P Thought I'd try it out and see if I still like it in a week....I really want to get the Celtic love knot. It's lovely and meaningful--that's what I've been searching for for years!!

Then today my brother calls. He mentions how little money he has but doesn't actually ask for any, and I'm not going to offer if he doesn't have the balls to ask.

And I don't want to give up my chance at this class.

So now I feel guilty. I don't want to feel guilty, but I do.

I know it's been said over and over, but take the class!!! Went through some similar stuff with my brother too, he was living with us temporarily while he was "getting back on his feet" but he actually started stealing money from me AND my kids to support his heroin habit. It was devastating! I kicked him out and he went AWOL for months. My mom finally tracked him down and I ended up leaving home for a few days to help detox him. I told his this was the last help of any kind he would ever get from me unless he cleaned himself up for good and he'd NEVER see another dime from me no matter what. He was 2 years clean last week :)

OKAY!! I PLUSSED A COMPLETE STRANGER!

Thank gawd I did not volunteer to be at all involved in this spring camp up here. Yesterday had intermittent showers, and it's just plain raining today. Sitting in tents with a bunch of thirteen year-old boys, no ipods, DVD players.... . ......just each other.. ....GAH. :o

M's troop says that moms are welcome at camp or overnight camping trips. However, they tell you that this is a male event and it's not the same with moms around. Moms do not like some of the things like camping with no actual latrines. Making only Ramen noodles and oreos for breakfast. Our group let's them plan food and suffer the consequences.

I'm holding another as yet unphrootphul open house.....

Did I tell ya'll that the wee bird is still making appearances at my bathroom window? He usually shows up in the morning, and pecks on the glass. I stood right there and watched him and it didn't faze him a bit. He's really pretty--light brown wif a bright orange beak. :D

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
