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

    • I just saw your profile says thalassemia. My doc blames part of the microcytic anemia on thalassemia trait even though all my thalassemia gene tests have come back negative (and I don't have the right ethnic background). In a way I am hoping it is a FODMAP (carbohydrate) sensitivity instead of a gluten allergy because at least with the FODMAP you just have to stay low FODMAP and don't have to worry about crumbs and gluten cross-contamination like with celiac. I will check back in in 6 months once I see whether there are specific foods I can't eat or if it really does come down to gluten  Thanks for your support!!
    • Good for you for trying to manage your health.  My only suggestion would be to find another doctor.  Obviously, he does not even follow standard recommendations for screening.  I would worry that he overlooks other things too.  It never hurts to get a second opinion.  Second opinions have saved my family from unwanted surgeries and incorrect treatment.   The IgA (Immunoglobulin A) Test, in the case of celiac disease testing,  is a control test.  If he had ordered it, you would have known if the results are valid or not.  Now you are left in diagnostic Limboland.  Again, my TTG was negative it has never been positive even in follow-up testing.   You can go gluten free for life.  My hubby did that 17 years ago some 12 years prior to my diagnosis (per the advice of his GP and my my allergist).  But he will be the first to tell you that I get way more support from family, friends and medical. I wish you well!  
    • Okay so I had a peanut butter milkshake from steak n shake last night. I'm nearly positive that every thing else I've had recently has been gluten free. I have been feeling like my stomach is acting up a bit lately, but after this milkshake it is so much more intense. I considered maybe I'm sensitive to dairy too, but in the last few days  I've had plenty of dairy that didn't make me react  like this. The steak n shake website didn't list any real specifics on ingredients for milkshakes. I read in other forums that some shakes use a malt mix or syrup ( which I didn't see mentioned on the site), but it is corn based. I called the my local steak n shake and the guy said he is "pretty sure" it's corn based.  I called the customer service line and they couldn't tell me if it was gluten free or not. I found ONE listing on a website that said all shakes were gluten free expect peanut butter and one other flavor. I know this seems like a lot for one shake, but I'm so tired of not knowing what makes me sick. Has anyone else had an experience with this or has anymore knowledge about steak and shakes products?
    • So my tTG-IgA result came back negative. Doc did not do the total IgA so I could be in the 2% false negative. However my ferritin continues to fall (at 25 now so getting borderline to need another iron infusion, 6 months ago it was 50) and reflux was keeping me up at night so after the blood test I went on a gluten free and low FODMAP diet. 6 days later my reflux is gone! I had no idea it could work that quickly. I still feel like there is a lump in my esophagus and have a bit of difficulty swallowing (think I still have irritation in that area) but no more acid and regurgitation! Also have not had a single episode of gas or urgency or days with 8 BMs.  It has only been 6 days so maybe I am just having a good spell but am going to continue gluten free and low FODMAP for a month and then see if there are any FODMAP foods I can eat (but not gluten unless my doc decides I should have a biopsy) (I miss pears and apples). I guess the real test is to see if my ferritin levels start to go up-testing again in 6 months. The diet is very restrictive but worth it if it gets rid of the reflux and other symptoms. BTW post-menopausal (and before that I had an IUD for 10 years TMI) so no periods to blame for chronic microcytic/hypochromic anemia. Doc says "that's normal for you, you just don't absorb iron very well".
    • Did you know that there are so many issues and questions surrounding celiac disease that even doctors who specialize in it find that the scientific data changes every six months, and this includes research data, new diagnostic and testing recommendations, and its connections to other diseases and conditions. In fact, many of us who think we have "arrived" and know it all might actually need a refresher course on the disease. View the full article
