The good news is that my husband is finally entirely out of spaghetti sauce in the freezer. The bad news is that that left me with no clue what to make, I was left resorting to steak and beans. Poor us! :lol:

I'm not sure if I want to take on a new sauce recipe tomorrow or wait until after Christmas. I'm fighting a killer sinus infection and already need to make cookies.

Since I have been busy getting ready for Christmas my husband made beef cubes with noodles.

My daughter made chocolate fudge on her own today, so proud of her :) Tomorrow we are going to tackle homemade butter to go with the mini corn muffins that are giving to my parents as a gift.

I also made a cinnamon sugar exfoliating scrub to give as a gift, never again will I buy a sugar scrub again it was so easy to make!

I did about 2 cups of sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon and baby oil to get the right consistency (I used about 2 oz.). Mix it all together and you're done. I had my daughter test it out for me on her hands when they get are horribly dry and it actually made her hands fairly smooth.

I managed to make dinner tonight. Fried up some beef tips and hash browns. Miraculously I also managed to somehow wake up sicker today than yesterday after sleeping for 12 hours. I am, without a doubt, going to be spending Christmas sick. Sure beats spending it recovering from surgery! In my infinite wisdom though I forgot to list parchment paper on my shopping list and so I won't be making my cookies until Monday when I can go buy a pack. I'm going to cross my fingers that at least some of the vertigo will pass by then.

Spent the night hurling and D. No food shopping done, kids pressies not wrapped, carpets no longer recognize vacuum, 3 year old friends party later, not got present for DH yet.

Strangely still feel pretty optimistic though, although Mr Mindwarp is exhausted :-\

Dinner will probably be scrambled egg...

We are also just coming up to our 1 year leaving the city anniversary, so this time last year were trying to pack 8 years of junk with flu...

I am so much healthier, had a flu jab, kids happy by the coast, lots of new friends, doctor who knows very little about celiac, but listened and referred me on.

Then I found you guys.

I am truly blessed.

Merry Christmas all my lovelies <3

Actually, if you are the one to "coin it", you get to determine how it is spelled. Through usage, any word can become part of the vernacular.(sadly)

Yet, some are pretty cool. And, I did not make up this word Redunkulous:

Sorry you are feeling yucky, Addy and I hope you recover quickly. xx

This sounds fantastic, Alex! I'm going to give it a try! Thanks for sharing your recipe. :)

oh no, MW. sorry you are not feeling well, I agree with the "feeling blessed " Happy Christmas to you!

For the love of mike, what's going on, chickies?

LOVE2 is hurting, Addy is hurting, MW is hurting.... :unsure: Sending all loving and healing wishes to you and hoping you'll all rebound by Tuesday, if not sooner.

Dinner tonight:

Bison stuffed peppers

Baking today : a few flourless chocolate cakes for friends (redunkulously decadent )

and pecan bars, cheesecake and trying my hand at homemade truffles for my family to enjoy on Christmas Eve.

The RBJ is almost gone. I gave most of it away and I confess, I am hoarding the rest.

Feeling like cr*ap because I have to go egg, seed and nut free for awhile. Still didn't gain dairy back, although I can eat some cheese once a week.

So steak and carrot puree seasoned with garlic, black pepper and olive oil it is.

Tonight, after being out all day, we had Tink spaghetti with Patsy's sauce and fresh Italian bread from the (gluten-free) bakery.

Now on to wrapping gifts....

    • I highly recommend being tested for celiac disease before you go off gluten, if you haven't already done so.
    • Hi.  I'm new to this!  Please help me get started. I want to try..I mean DO...a gluten free life so that, hopefully, my health issues will go away. So, please help me.
    • Hello. I apologize for this being long but I feel I should explain the situation so you better understand where I'm coming from. I am here because I do not have the time or money to be galavanting around to different doctors offices. I spent time doing that already, lost money out of my pay from not working but never found A SINGLE ANSWER.  I am a 23 year old female and back when I was about 13-14 I was diagnosed with Mononucleosis. Prior to this, I had been having other issues, or at least the minor problems I had previously considered as 'growing pains' since that's what my primary at the time attributed my pains to. Well now i'm 23 and it's only gone downhill since then. Back then I was told by a GI doctor who had done two or three EDG's and two colonoscopies that I have "the enzymes for crohn's and need to be careful." No other explanation other than eat 'gluten free'..... Now, this was kind of when it was the new 'health fad' for people, so being so young my logic was 'I'm young, I should be able to do what I want and eat what I want without worry!" so that's what i continued to do, despite feeling overall unwell. (I had really always felt unwell so it wasn't really that big of a deal for me)  Now that i'm older, i've literally experience an entire swath of issues. The only reason I am here is because I am now thinking back to that conversation with the GI Doctor that maybe she was right. While I do have insurance, I honestly don't really have the money to be shelling out for these tests all over again as I was lucky the first time around when my grandparents had taken me since I was underage.  My symptoms over the years and continuing have been: (in full, some may have nothing to do with the another)
      Lower back problems, feeling like sciatica but never confirmed. X-rays, MRIs, etc show nothing despite the intense pain. Drs now refuse to do more tests for 'nothing'. So I am left to handle feeling like an elephant is sitting on my lower back, right above my tailbone. (I did fall on that around 12 or 13 but doc never called back after testing, assumed i was fine...)
      Stomach cramping/spasm feelings
      On and off nausesa, any time of day.
      Inability to sleep. 
      Constant changes from hot to cold. (Original doctor has said over the years my temperature seems to run higher than normal. I almost always feel feverish even if only slightly.)
      Headaches/migraines
      Fatigue
      Lightheadedness at times
      Restless legs (DRIVES. ME. INSANE. The muscle relaxers i've been given just made it 1000000x worse! I was so sleepy but couldn't fall asleep due to the restlessness.)
      On and off diarrhea / constipation (I don't know what a 'normal' bowel movement is)
      Costochondritis that has come and gone since I was in 4th grade. (I remember the day because it was April Fools day and everybody thought I was faking the serious pain I was in. I could barely breathe, it felt like my tendons/muscles were being torn apart on the inside) .  I believe this is what my original DR thought was 'growing pains', except they never stopped even after I was finished growing..
      I used to get sick very easily - for about two years it seemed to clear up then i started getting infections non-stop.
      There are some .... embarrassing things... Such as despite how many times I clean myself I feel like i'm.... leaking.......... 
      Sharp/ache like pains everywhere in my body.
      There are likely many other things that I'm just so used to I'm not listing because I'm not sure if they're even related.



      I am just so tired of feeling like dog crap. I've never felt 100%, ever. For as long as I can remember i've always had issues but I come from a family that kind of just.... deals with their problems and not complain 24/7. After years of that, I need help. I am absolutely fed up not being able to do things because I just feel generally crappy. It's seriously depressing and making my depression and anxiety worse. Is testing for a second time worth it? If it is, what tests should I really be focusing on to figure out if this is my problem?
    • Thanks for the responses raven and cyclinglady!  I guess we just have to wait.  Is it wrong that I want there to be no question that its celiac?  She has had so many symptoms for awhile now--seemingly increasing--but I want there to be no question in her mind that she needs to be gluten-free--you know? For now we are working on eating gluten-free but I haven't really tackled the whole cross-contamination thing yet and looking into my freezer, fridge and pantry I have a decent amount of gluten that the rest of us will eat.  Then I guess I'll decide how gluten-free the rest of us should be. On a side note--the gi ran a bunch of tests prior to the biopsy--I haven't seen the results--but they mentioned over the phone that her white blood cells were high--maybe due to celiac?
