Just got home from dinner. No words. Just good. I'd be smiling if I had the energy. Gotta study, and my instructor from Math 308 agreed to tutor me in calculus so another smile goes here. And I think I got invited for thanksgiving dinner, so I'll have to figure out what kind of face that gets. I didn't accept. Have to think about it. Daughter makes dinner for the whole family so I'd meet everyone at once, including the ex. Definitely have to think about it.

Have an amazing morning y'all. or whatever time o' day it is. :wub:

After you think about it, go. :D I have a good pheeling.....

Just a quick hi--I'm at me son's on the world's slowest computer. The multi quote has taken me 15 minutes :lol: Had to see what was happenin' here though....

We saw a black bear walking next to the highway on the way down here--Mark called and reported it and hopefully they got someone out there before he wandered into the traffic.

A Bev sighting!! :D And "the story of Bev'd" :D

Be back later....

I had to have 4 surgeries to replace receding gum lines (they used cadaver gums - boy did that ever give Clark a lot of material to freak me out). I chose to use the cadaver gums because I had heard the skin grafting hurt worse than the procedure.

:blink:

Wow.. . . . Low-eeee.. . .. ....that is rather spooky, fitting in well with all this other Hallowe'en talk. 'Tis funny, cadaver gums being surgically inserted would bother me considerably more than having a cadaver heart or kidney installed....wonder why. I suppose because it's....like, in yer mouth. . . . ... . ... .:unsure:

Jack your Lantern?

:lol:

Um.. .. perhaps Jerk-o-lantern . ... . . . . . . . ...

I need a vacation :wacko:

Crap, Leeeesargh, do you ever. :( Loved the video.. . . and I would love to watch you in one of these impromptu dances. .. .

Have to think about it. Daughter makes dinner for the whole family so I'd meet everyone at once, including the ex. Definitely have to think about it.

Go, Jyessss! And talk about us. Constantly. <_<:lol:

I was going to say go for it until the ex part came up. But it might be amicable. It's definitely a sign that you're special to him for him to invite you. RELATIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!

Had a great time at the Bates Haunted Motel. It was small so it only took about 20 minutes. Superman jumped and yelled a few times (me too). At one point someone got sawed in half and guts fell out (he was obviously in a box). They let 4 people in at a time and we were in with a young girl and her father. She got really scared. The Penitentiary was definitely better last year but it was great to get out of the house.

Then we came home and "did the deed, jumped the broomstick, or had our gluten-free cake and ate it too." The last time was the night our son left for college (August 28th) and it was WAAAAAAY too long ago. Won't let that happen again.

After that we watched "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown."

Yes, cadaver gums creeped me out at first but as I said the alternative was extremely painful.

Clark wants me to come to bed so I'll be back tomorrow.

Happy Halloweeeeeen to all tomorrow and to all a good night! ARRRR - dressing up as a modified pirate for when I answer the door.

HAPPY ALL HALLOWS' EVE, PSILLIES!

jack1a3_KWFLR9.gif

Back at you all my dear psillies!!!!!!

You are not going to believe this (or perhaps you are). I was putting the last part of my costume on and slipped off my chair smack onto the side of the face I had hurt. Hubby is going out for crazy glue to fix my glasses (only pair I have that covers the bruise - need a new pair as I had scratched d a god pair when I fell in Point Judith (before I knew about Ataxia) and I don't want to use my good pair because I'll be screwed if I had anything happens to them. So I'll have to get a new pair of backup glasses as soon as I pay off my credit card next month. I use progressive bifocals that also turn into sunglasses and they're VERY expensive. I KNOW I should go to the ER but I don't have a headache and I also don't want to miss the trick or treaters. I promise to go tomorrow!!!! I am just so sick of this and really angry at myself. i guess it's better that it's the same side.I also see an EAP counsellor (they deal with transitions from moving, unemployment, illness, etc) through my husband's company and I get 8 free sessions. My old therapist from home told me to be careful about what I tell her because she works for my husband's company not for me and there is no patient confidentiality until I begin sessions with my new therapist (not EAP) in 6 weeks. Do you know anything about this? I canceled last week's appointment and told her my son gave me a cold. My husband is the sweetest, kindest man and I don't want anything to go into his records.Thanks for all of the support. Right now I'm managing to multitask and put ice on it while I type. Also, the last fall made it hard to read and this one hasn't affected my vision. I think the glasses breaking saved me some trauma.

Lo, what is the purpose of this counselor? Is it someone to help you write resumes and get a job? When we moved, I had to see one because hub's company would pay 1 months salary if I was actively looking for work. If it's for career counseling but there is no money benefit, you could decline nicely, saying you are going to be a stay home wife for a while.

If this is a psych counselor, they do have to maintAin confidentiality. However, the fact that you are seeing one will be known. Also, anything they have to divulge to get paid.

If you want to message me & give me more specifics, I might be able to help you figure it out. Hub works for large company in human resources and I haven't worked in years, but one of my responsibilities dealt with medical information laws.

(((((Whispery voice))))): Glad you had a good night, Rah-shyellle!

Wow... . . . . a good friend of DD's is working at getting a portfolio together for applying into visual arts at university. She has been working on facial portraits, and asked Sophie to pose for her.

Well .. . . ......the stills are awesome. When I look at them I do not, for a second, recognise her - - this is the little, mischievious urchin that has toddled through this house, sat on my lap, crawled into bed with me at midnight, a little frightened ball. ........ . .

Do they really have to grow up?. . . . . . . ... . :(.. . . . . . . ..:wub:. . . .

    •  I have a friend with MS, another with breast cancer and a third with RA.  At the same age my only problem is I cannot eat gluten!  So when I start getting frustrated about food I think about that and how lucky I truly am.  Once you get in the swing of it it gets easier and then you start to feel better which makes it all worth it.    Also when I first went gluten-free I read on this group about Mark's daily Apple and the Paleo community. I turned to that which was extremely motivating.  I've never seen so many people so excited about not eating gluten. It was a very positive energy and motivated me to find other foods to eat. Also, they love bacon! 
    • I know I needed the confirmation.  My hubby went gluten free per the very poor advice from my allergist and his GP.   It worked, but we really do not know if he has celiac disease.  He refuses to do a gluten challenge and I do not blame him.  We do know that gluten makes him sick.  He has been gluten free for 16 years.   So, when my GI suspected celiac disease, I could not believe it.  I had no tummy issues at the time, but was anemic.  Had been my whole life and it was blamed on a genetic anemia and menstruation.  I knew what being gluten free meant and I did not want to have celiac disease.  But,   I got positives  on the DGP and my biopsy.    Nothing like seeing something in writing.  I showed that to my extended family who was in denial as well.   I had a shared household with hubby all those years.  But after my diagnosis and the fact my kid started making things in the kitchen, we all went Gluten Free.  Great kid, but I could not trust her with my health!  If you DD has small siblings, consider all going gluten free.  They can eat gluten outside of the house.  That is what my kid does.  
    • Yes, I used to write a lot, for work and pleasure. Now, not so much. Which probably explains why you guys have to suffer the occasional bout of nonsense!
    • Some cookware you can get rid of the gluten by running in the oven clean cycle then scrubbing. Gluten is a protein not a germ, so disinfectant will not get rid of it but high heat above 500F can destroy the proteins. This way you can save cast iron and some baking pans/sheets. To make double sure after, use foil and parchment paper in baking pans/dishes also makes clean up real easy. Butcher paper makes a nice clean counter top/work area and after your done your can pick it up dump it off into the trash for easy clean up and after a few days or if it gets real messy just toss it. Really makes kitchen cleanup easier and changed my life. OH get new untenil organizers for your drawers to avoid gluten crumbs getting on your silverware/new utensils and vacuum out all drawers real good, Make sure you clean out the cupboards, and fridge real good for crumbs.
    • JMG,  I just read your link and the posts about your non celiac diagnosis and although they are about a painful experience, they are enjoyable to read. You are very talented. Have any of your jobs involved writing?
