At least around year 2001ish, there really was a hair salon in the Pittsburgh area that was named "Shirley's Curl Up and Dye."  I would always laugh on it when we took a certain road it was on.  LOL

check, check, check for Irish and check, check, check, check for karen

 

anyone else want to play stump the emergency pack....well one of those checks for karen is a pair of comfy shorts rather than undies...my dear aunt gert drilled it into us...lever leave home without spare panties in your purse -- that is an embarrassing practice when you are raising little boys that are digging through your bag for a snack (cuz there was always one -- long before i had ever heard the word celiac).

I don't leave the house without a package of wet wipes  :ph34r: and an emergency stash of meds.  Thinking I'll have to add the bottle of wine to my go bag.  I don't know why I didn't think of that....it's so obvious  B)

wipes - check, but were dried out

meds - had to add the silly epi to the go bag thus the reason for today's inspection -- figured if I had to add epi, i would take the opportunity to add wine -- which is what I am about to do to my day

 

pouring now :)

If you are pouring your your wine into a glass, and it is not full:

If you think the glass is half full, you are an optimist.

If you think it is half empty, you are a pessimist.

If you believe that the glass is the wrong size, you are an engineer!

Engineer here...just went to a larger glass...cuz I spilled a touch from the last pour. Now I have a large glass...half full ;)

Edited to add...'tween pours I got the pool plumbing hooked back up again and bathed the dog ... Poor thing has been scared of water her whole life and is now 15 and has skin eby-jeebies...we splashed around in a warm epsom bath and she seems to be happy now.

Added fun...the salt water chlorine generator has an alarm issue....perfect water salivation and copper levels....but the generator is still unhappy...thankful for amazon prime right now...new generator to arrive mañana :)

I drop my drinks so often, my husband made me buy a bunch of those lidded insulate cups with straws, and I like their protection so much, I only use those if I am away from the kitchen table!  Kind of sad, but it works!

 

Being all anal retentive and OCD, you would crack up at the stuff I kept on me at all times.  My car has two ice scrapers, tire pressure thing, spare cords and chargers, an emergency baggie with floss, q tips, tampons, bandaids, wet wipes, alcohol wipes, hair ties, pen... i keep a brush and floss picks in there (i like to floss, a lot.) and an emergency roadside kit.  None of these things are visible, all neatly tucked away in my pretty car that I like to keep very clean because I don't like dirty things.

 

My purse is a greater extension of all that... lol... but the #1 thing I never leave home without is HAND SANITIZER!!!  I'm a serious germaphobe and pretty much die inside if I don't have it when I need it.

Check on all that except the thing my husband used to "love" picking up at the store before I lost that plumbing ;)

Was joking with hubs tonight...I think I could build a crude tent with emergency blankets and duct tape....and outfit it pretty well...all with my emergency response team pack....of course I am no longer sure I could carry it a great distance.

Omg......I am exactly, ridiculously, frighteningly the opposite. Do I actually even have ONE ice scraper in my car?.... :unsure: ....not sure......Umbrella?....Jumper cables?....emergency candles/blankets.....?.....I would be a pathetic mess if suddenly stranded on an isolated stretch. And my PURSE, well......no feminine products (actually, got them in my gym bag).....no band-aids (always asking DH for one -- always in his wallet....he is the ex-boy scout, OCD-ready-for-armageddon type), minimal makeup....no hand sanitizer. I remain a germ-covered, makeup-less, food-between-my-teeth miscreant.....Gawd, how do I keep friends?   :rolleyes:

We've got a dual- anality (I think I just made that word up)  thing going on here. J and I both have "kits".

We now live where you must keep a "disaster kit" for hurricane season. Being a celiac requires advance thinking for travel anyway, so

I've got a "got-to" bag anyway, so I just added to it a bit. His has bottled water, tools, duct tape, batteries, flashlights--seriously, how many flashlights do you really need? apparently 10 or so. (Now this made sense when we lived in the remote countryside, but here? )

Mine has shelf-stable food, hand mirror and small bag with er, grooming materials LOL--waaa? I like to look good in any weather,-the famous TP--I think the TP thing is ingrained having had issues all my life until DX lol--1 change of clothes for both of us--which is a tee shirt, shorts and undies lol, paper towels. Things like that.

Yes, the car has items like this too--all the time---bandaids, paper towels, flashlight< see what I mean?-- stash cash, car cell phone charger, beach shoes. 

And of course, now Bella the cat has to have a "got-go" bag too.  :lol: right next to her carrier in case of evacuation. (note to self: get kitty cat valium.....)

Shake flashlights! Even better than solar because, when you need the solar flashlight it's been sitting in a dark " go bag" or under your car seat. These things you shake them up and they work.

    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
