Good morning my precious friends!.

Would you look at this...it's Thursday (as indicated on post #1) and it's October, as indicated on the title of the thread. I still feel like I'm missing something though. Hmmm...

~ Welcome back. You know what to do AND more importantly...you CAN do it! Sounds like you hit it 110% yesterday. Way to go!!!.


~ Are you feeling any better with the prescription you got from the doctor? Seems like it's taking a long time, huh? At least you are resting some. Sounds like you had a beautiful day outside yesterday. Perfect temp. for me..


~ It was awesome to see you back with your incredible shoutouts! Do you know the last time I wore a size 10 in pants? NEVER! I vaguely remember a 9 (probably for a day...but it was in Jr. High; straight to an 11; and then to a 13 where I stayed for a very long time...and then there were kids). I'm so happy for you!!!.

I can't believe the weather was in the 60's there. CRAZY!!!.

I hope Val is doing well, too. You do know that you do for us what she did for you, right?.

This is what you said and I think this is what you do for many of us:.

"I have really needed a good motivator for the exercise when I don't want to go and she was always there telling us all her fun things she was doing and it totally made me want to be like her.".

Sorry for the extra pressure...but it's true!.

For everyone else, they start at:.


~ Read through Kori's posts and you'll feel like you're totally caught up. It's pretty quick reading, but of course, very worth it..

I hope you're feeling better..

A big ole whoop-whoop for Asshat being gone until Monday!.

I was reading about the pain in your calf, moving from the left side to the right now. That is what my body does to me. Besides the constant uterus PIA...do you have other pains? With the Fibro., I may have a pain on one side of my body for months (unbearable), then as quickly as it comes, it goes and some other part of my body hurts...again for a very long time, until it's time to move to another spot. It is the most bizarre thing. The doctors; surgeons; MRI's; X-Rays; blood tests; etc. show nothing ever.

Maybe you could look up "symptoms of Fibromyalgia" and see if anything else looks familiar and then you could mention it to your doctor. It is brought on by stress, typically. I'm not sure if you've had any of that or not...yeah, right! I just want you to get better..

Sorry S-Dad was a grump. Glad Joe was the one who got to witness it and not you. I hope you sleep past 4 am today. (fingers crossed)..

Ok, I think I'm all caught up from yesterday/last night..

I am sorry if I've been negative lately guys. I try to keep my happy face on most of the time, but I've been in a lot of pain and I've got the nasty cold. I don't understand the edema going on in my legs, but it scares me. If you made it to my response to Sandy on the last page of last night's post...the Rheumatologist left me a message that said "edema is not typically a side effect of the new medicine." I did, however see where it has been for several people. I feel VERY heavy from the lower back down; my legs feel like they could split open (my skin is so tight); it hurts to walk; I feel like the fluid is putting pressure on nerves and sending a very sharp pain down my leg..


~ Any suggestions on the above? Would I look like an idiot going to the E.R. for the above symptoms? I have read where leg edema can be related to blood clot in the leg; blockage in the heart; etc. Let me know what you think. The advantage to the E.R. is that they have all the equipment there...lab; ultrasound (for leg...no baby); etc..

Oh! The good news (if it is edema), is that each leg could be holding between 5-10 pounds of fluid. That would mean I'm not such a big f-ing failure at everything..


~ Good morning. Is Olivia 100% better? How is Kaitlyn doing? I'm sure Sam is as cute as can be ALWAYS! Have a good day..


~ I think I already wrote this on yesterday's board...but I hope you had fun "shoe shopping". Find anything cute? When it starts to cool down, I want to get me some ankle boots. I had some years ago and I LOVE them..

Ok all...it's 1 am...I should try to get a wink or two of sleep..

I love you guys!..

Olivia 100% better...but now it's Kaitlyn's turn...She threw up and diarahhed all at the same time...it was like a massacre of pooh in the bathroom...poor or not I just threw out the bathmat, the jammies and the towel that were the poor victims of this unfortunate escapade...

Still not sure on the E.R..

Poor Kaitlyn. Poor bathroom. Does her "mother" realize the risk she puts her daughter in? Besides the fact that she brings it home to the rest of you. It's terrible. I know that sometimes "stuff happens" and kids get "stuff"...but it sounds like she's getting it because of "filth" in da hood. Not cool.

Lol I hope she starts feeling better soon. I'm glad Olivia is 100% though...

It's auburn. lol I like it! If I can get the rest of me to look presentable, I will take a picture and post it. I feel all bloated and blech..

Ok, really gonna go now. I just had to make my rounds before I fell asleep...make sure DH's alarm was REALLY set; get his lunch ready; charge his cell phone & IPOD. He CAN do all of these things, but they are less important to him (like the cell phone...if I need him, I want to be able to reach him...whereas, he would just say "oh yeah, my phone went dead". lol..

, your hubby sounds like mine. Glad you like your hair color...and I am sure as soon as you clear up this terrible bloating issue you will be happy with yourself..


, Tylenol PM never worked well for me.....Try a combo of three inexpensive ingrediants: Melatonin, Valerian root and L-Tryophan...it will put you to sleep in 20-30 minutes and sleep good and awake refreshed!.


, I would have done the same exact thing...as a matter of fact I have thrown away good towels that my gb's got sick on...just couldn't deal with all the grossness...LOL Don't get discouraged about the scale....my goodness, look at the start point of your ticker. You are AMAZING!!.

Lauri... really hope you are feeling better. hair sounds great. love that shade. we do appreciate you so much..

Lori.. glad sdad is doing ok. is grouchy a good sign for him, like more like himself? hope he you and Joe have a great day today..

Jo... great to see you here..

Ang... poor olivia. I have thrown away my share of stuff. it's unavoidable. thats why I buy cheat stuff from walmart. it can all be replaced.

Kori... loved the shoutouts and returing clothes. shoe shopping was great. hit payless like you and got a pair of flat boots that go up to my knee (black) and brown flat shoes. I could have bought a bunch more but not on the budget. cant beat 2 pairs for $55.

Thanks to Medifast and you guys, ill be wearing dresses with boots this fall..

Morning Lori- text received with a BIG smaile - thanks! how's your leg today?.

Lauri - if it's both legs and no new pain - call your regular doc. If new pain (usually sharp) go to ED STAT! another thought is to check your B/P. does your "local" walgreens, Bartells, CVS, Walmart..... have a free or cheap b/p machine? if it's high - go to the ED!.

A cautious GOOD morning to all my good luck Shamrocks today!.

I am in the purgatory waiting mode today for a doctor call back as well. Tim needs a MRI done under sedation to confirm and map out the abdominal vessels that need correcting for the vascular surgeon. All signs are leading to this cause of his pain, weight loss,non functioning stomach, bowels and more. It is extremely rare in someone his age, but my Timmy is a rare one in many wonderful ways, it doesn't surprise us. more on that as info comes in.....

We have tickets to see a fabulous theatre production of Peter Pan tonight. I will be pulling all my tricks to have Tim comfortable and well enought to go. The show is called 360* productions. In a tent with cirque du soile type suspensions. The stage is in the round with a full 360* projected images on the tent walls. London, Neverland etc...always changing and the sensation of soaring is great.

I will give a review tomorrow so you all can watch for it in your part of the woods. I am sure excited to get out and play normal grown up...oh thats not right.

.."I won't grow up" -Peter Pan.

Hugs to all.

Hey Shams,.

Just spoke with Joe who is driving around in circles in Philadelphia ("Look kids, Big Ben!") trying to find where he's supposed to be. The guy can rock all of the boroughs of NYC like it's his J.O.B. - but take him out of the city and he's a disaster..

Anyway, it's going to be a late night for JoeJoe. I wish he'd just stay over instead of coming home at that time..

I had a great dinner - turkey meatloaf, asparagus, a wedge of LC lite...good stuff. I'm really happy with how things went on the TM, too. Although, I'm not gonna lie - my calves are a little sore. I'm trying to stretch them out..

I'm going to take Sparks for a spin around the block. I never take him any more because, somehow, every dog in town is out when I do. And, for as much as I love my boy, he just isn't good around other dogs - especially when he's with me. I don't know what the hell happened to him or what's wrong - if he's trying to protect me - if he's just lost his mind...I dunno. But I didn't have the pet sitter come today and he needs a good stretch..

I talked w/S'Dad and he's like the Prophet of Freakin' Doom. I know he doesn't want to be in the hospital any more - but if he's not there feeling sorry for himself he'd just be at home feeling sorry for himself and at least they're taking good care of him there. I told him to call me if he needed anything and otherwise I'd call when I'm driving in to work tomorrow. He was hoping to get out of there tomorrow - but I know that's not going to happen. Looks like it'll go in to next week fo' sho'..

Dats all I gotz for now..

OK, I am getting weird error messages every time I try to make my shout outs so I am just going to post quickly and come back later to do my shout outs..

Been a baking fool here the past couple days. Made some caramel apple muffins that made me want to scarf them down. I settled for just smelling up the house like apple cinnamon. YUM! My student's loved them! It was a great treat to the end of our Johnny Appleseed lessons. Made Peanut Butter Pretzel cookies today with the students for their cooking lesson and they loved em! Again, smelled wonderful but I can definitely resist! Baking for others makes me just as happy as eating the food so that works for me! Need to bake chocolate cupcakes for my neice's party tomorrow and some oatmeal cookies to make "Disappearing Ghost cookies" for a Halloween activity at school tomorrow..

Will try and get on later but not sure if I will be able to. Have appointment with the trainer. She wants to put me in the gym's "Success book". Need to bring before and After pic for her tonight. Then have baking to do..

Mucho love hookers..

Funny thing..

I go to walk the dog - we have a great walk - no problems - he's such a good boy..

But, then again, we didn't encounter any other dogs..

The whole time we're walking, I have one of my favorite songs in my head..

So I come back home and BLAST it and danced around the house..

I haven't done that in forever..

I love to dance. It makes me happy..

Then I check Facebook real quick and find this on JoJo's page....
