Doesn't anyone else out there like the more traditional way better?????? The trick is, behind every spoiled woman is a satisfied man! ;) I had a friend, and not a real close friend, come to me for marital advice, they were just getting back together after separation and it wasn't going well. She had a whole list of things he wasn't doing ... I just asked her one question, "You have this whole list of things he should be doing to be a good husband and father, he has one thing on his list, are you doing that one thing?" They BOTH seem very happy now.

Patti, was that clear enough ... I remember last time I had to really spell it out for you. :lol::lol::lol:

Richard, maybe you can verify this for us, men will bend over backwards to do the 3000 things on our list if the one thing on theirs is taken care of.

Crystal clear :lol:

And I knew THAT--(believe me B) ) I thought maybe you had something else up your sleeve!

And for the record, I agree with you 100%--and I've been married to the same man for 31 years :o I know I don't look old enough, but..... :D

Songs in my head.....

for some odd reason the main song from "Oklahoma" ............"oooooooooooh klahoma when the wind comes sweeping down the plain...." Oh how i hate how annoying that musical is.

also Ok Go's "Get Over It" and "You're So Damn Hot."

and KT Tunstall's "Suddenly I See."

And last but not least....the theme song to CSI: Miami by the Who "Whooooo are you? Who, Who, Who, Who....I really wanna know"

:P

I couldn't help it. He made me so MAD. I'm usually a pretty happy-go-lucky, live and let live kind of person. He triggered some kind of hostility in me that I don't know what happened. MAN, I was furious. I guess it's the Southern Belle thing . . . . we're sticky sweet, but don't hack us off!

Things to ponder

Last night I played a blank tape at full blast. The mime next door went nuts.

If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation?

Just think how much deeper the ocean would be if sponges didn't live there.

If a cow laughed, would milk come out her nose?

:lol::lol::lol: excellent.....

Another thing to ponder:

Would a protester outside a psychiatrist's office be considered an antidepressant?????

:lol::lol::lol: also excellent.....

Doesn't anyone else out there like the more traditional way better??????

Um, yes (hand raised), I do,

WHERE IS MY HUSBAND????? :(:lol:

(not really looking for him - he'll find me when it's time - but dang, you guys always remind me WHAT I'm missing )

I know Lynne--he touched a nerve with me, too. I almost never post in anger to anyone, but when he said that food intolerance didn't exist, I saw red! I actually had tears in my eyes by the time I finished posting! :ph34r:

That's what made it so funny! I was chuckling as I read it ... WOW, this guy has really ticked off Lynne!!

(rummaging through his closet looking for a 10' pole)

Nope not gonna touch that, even if I could find the 10' pole!

Update in the fridge situation. I mentioned that we (Maddy & I) went shopping for fridges, and what we had found, and tried to make my case for the BIG side-by-side. She wasn't having any bit of it. She even suggested we just get (gasp) another one like the one we have :( , because we can't agree on anything else!

Meanwhile Maddy walked up to the old fridge and tries to wrap her arms around it and says "I wan dis un" (I want this one) Our anniversary is coming up 10/10, so maybe we'll go out to dinner and Home Depot/LOWES/Sears and then settle things when we come home. (I can't say who I'm rooting for now that Carla brought this up!).

The gift for the person in your life who has everything:

Looks like you touched it ... we got our answer. ;) Men are so easy to manipulate! :lol::lol: Just let her get the refrigerator she wants .... she may change her mind at the store like Patti did. But if you're really pushing her now, she won't ever change her mind. Tell her it's more important to you that she like the refrigerator, so just pick out what she wants. Then there's nothing holding her to the one she thinks she wants ... Does this make sense to you? I know it makes sense to the women! :lol:

I think we ought to give something like that a proper name, as in "she really Carla'd that donut...then she put the rest (most of it) in the freezer." :)

"My kids just Carla'd their brussell sprouts" :D

"Honey, what's wrong? You don't like my meat loaf? You hardly Carla'd it!" :lol:

Has anyone seen that episode of "Ed" were his best friend gets him to eat a Lays potato chip, and he's all bent about it because he wanted to be the guy that ate "only one"? I used to love the dares/bets those guys used to make!

Something for those of you that are Carla'ing milk...

In a nutshell--kids are eating lunch and don't want to drink their milk. The mom says--it's good for you, it'll make your bones strong--look at Mr. Such and Such next door.

They look out the window, and the guy goes to lift his wheelbarrow (which is filled with dirt) and his arms just break off. He then deadpans--'this can't be good" The kids immediately pick up the glasses of milk and start furiously drinking. :lol:

You had to be there.... :P

    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
    • I started a topic a couple of weeks ago about my type 1 daughter with a ttg iga result of greater than 100 being suspected of having celiac.  She saw the GI and has her biopsy scheduled for this coming Tuesday.  Seems like there is no doubt that it will show celiac but we will know soon.  I have started thinking about some of the symptoms that I have had and before my house goes gluten-free would like to test and make sure that I am not testing positive for celiac as well.  My symptoms are always tired--easy to write off--been really constipated and bloated which is a relatively new phenomenon for me.  Sometimes I get tingling in my legs/feet but that hasn't been too bothersome.   My primary care doctor tested my ttg igg which was 3 (<6 is negative) and ttg iga was <1 (<or =4 positive)  It doesn't look like he ran an immunoglobulin a test to verify that I am not immunoglobulin a deficient   He ran a cbc that showed that my MCH was high (34) indicating that I could be deficient in B12 or folic acid--I rarely drink so I don't think that could have skewed the results.  Could this be indicative of anything?  My doctor just said all my labs are good.  Do you think this rules out celiac for me or would you try to do further clarification/testing? Thanks!
    • Hi all, my TTG/iga came back. It was 4. 0-3 is considered negative and 4-10 is weak positive.  In January it was 12 and before my endoscopy in October it was >100. it plummeted those first 2 months but seems to be taking more time to get lower. Should I feel optimistic? I guess 4 seems ok. 
    • Yes, i was 230 lbs upon diagnosis. My crp had been high for over 10 yrs. The first year i lost 70 lbs of water. Then i started to realize my continued irratic gi problems were more intollernces from processed foods as well as things like dairy and legumes. I went on an elimination diet and lost 20 more lbs. I finally stopped at 135 lbs which was still healthy weight, not that i had seen it until high school. Check your folic acid. Just found i am positive for one of the MTHFR genes meaning i cannot convert folic acid, which i lost stopping processed food, so i take 3000 mcg l-methylfolate daily. This is improtant because the body needs to detox all the gluten and chemicals i stored undiagnosed so when that was blocked i developed terible nerve pain. I am 10 years clear and things are amazingly better. I am finally adding in foods i could not tolerate like avacados and turkey. I had a pill cam and colonoscapy this year and there is no visible damage like there was 10 years ago. I think it was my clean diet and time to heal. I should have had a full vitamin panel when diagnosed but had no follow up advice except stop gluten. Am on d3, k2 as well. L glutamine helped heal my gi and d ribose gave me some blood sugar stability. I get these at amazon, NOW brand. My d3 is blue bonnet since its fish not lanolin. My k2 and l methyfolate is life extension. It is a long journey but it has become normal to live gluten free and my diet is so much healthier i think my longevity is increased because i have to eat this way. Plus the arterial sclerosis i had 10 yrs ago is gone, cleaned by my body and food. Well wishes.
