Today has been one of those days where if it can go wrong it will!
1) Tried to put the lid to the sugar bowl on my coffee cup- that didn't work
2)Went to straighten out my long johns when I put my shoes on and realized somehow I had put my pants on with a pair of long johns already stuck in there! I pulled them out the pant leg like a magician! My husband couldn't believe I didn't notice- neither could I!
3) Then I drove right between two deer running across the road. I was SO lucky!
4) Then I swerved to missed a rabbit and my bag fell on the floor of the car- I didn't know it was unzipped, so evertyhing fell out on the floor!
5) Finally get to school. One of my kiddo's throws up!
6) Now I have a kiddo who is showing signs he's about to blow up
Loved this quote from the Boston Globe about the Pat's win....
"It was as if everything our parents, our teachers, our coaches had tried to teach us transpired in the last 18 minutes of this magnificent spectacle, this Super Bowl. In the end, it wasn’t about revenge. It was about not giving up, about perseverance, about not panicking, about having a backup plan if the original plan isn’t working, about believing in yourself and your ability and in one another."
198/139.8/146 Eight years at goal
May I look back in gratitude and look forward in hope.
zazzles My DH (raised in the 40s) said he was raised with the idea that a good breakfast was bacon and eggs with whole milk and butter and homemade peach preserves on his Wonder Bread toast. Oh, and with a big glass of orange juice. And, a "real" man was the Marlboro Man. So, needless to say, everything he thought was good is bad today!! LOL!!
I'm not sure about the gluten issue. Our DGD was diagnosed with celiacs 3 years ago (when she was 7) and her mother was so diligent about serving healthy, organic, NON GMO, etc. food. Maybe if she had fed her Wonder Bread this wouldn't have happened! I know the experts are now changing their minds about never giving young children peanuts but now think they should be introduced. There are huge peanut allergies in children. I had never heard of that growing up either. Of course, I drank water out of the garden hose in the back yard and used to ride my bicycle behind the mosquito sprayers in our neighborhood!!
Mike, remembered reading this on Facebook. This is an excerpt.
"Common wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields as the practice allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest "
"Pre-harvest application of the herbicide Roundup or other herbicides containing the deadly active ingredient glyphosate to wheat and barley as a desiccant was suggested as early as 1980. It has since become routine over the past 15 years and is used as a drying agent 7-10 days before harvest within the conventional farming community."
"According to the US Department of Agriculture, as of 2012, 99% of durum wheat, 97% of spring wheat, and 61% of winter wheat has been treated with herbicides. This is an increase from 88% for durum wheat, 91% for spring wheat and 47% for winter wheat since 1998."
"Using Roundup on wheat crops throughout the entire growing season and even as a desiccant just prior to harvest may save the farmer money and increase profits, but it is devastating to the health of the consumer who ultimately consumes the glyphosate residue laden wheat kernels."
"In a nutshell, Dr. Seneff’s study of Roundup’s ghastly glyphosate which the wheat crop in the United States is doused with uncovers the manner in which this lethal toxin harms the human body by decimating beneficial gut microbes with the tragic end result of disease, degeneration, and widespread suffering"
Geez, using .roundup is just scary. Give us back our Wonder Bread from the 50's. After I read this article, it's organic bread for me.
Never did check in yesterday. Not a football fan and was just too itchy to deal with even the halftime hoopla. Finally got to see my doc today. Diagnosed as an allergy. Prednisone started (yuck and puff) but I would have taken anything for relief.
I love my doc. She was not only shocked to see me for something other then a wellness check but she loves a great skin issue and mystery. She's a hoot.
I will make an appointment with an allergist when everything calms down. I have several friends who promised a good head smack if I ever take so long to get help. Nice to be normally healthy.

Finally get here! Thought I was having a bad day until I read hpeterson1951 's posts! Yikes!
Eye doctor appointment at 8 am. She had prescribed contacts on my last visit to wear while reading and doing computer work. I told her that I just wasn't seeing as well with them. So she had me put them in. Naturally I had difficulty with one so one of the assistants came "to help". She rinsed the lens and gave it back to me. I got it in but it was so uncomfortable and I could barely see. She looked in my eye and told me it was fine. When the doctor came in an checked she --it's inside out! So much for help! Do you think I could get the stupid thing out?? Had to go next door and have the optician assist in its removal. UGH! Eyes are still tender from all the poking and prodding!
I missed my pool class but did go to the aerobics class (with blurry vision). Drove home slowly! After lunch I went to a new "Meditation class"... needed to use my GPS to get there and of course it took me to the wrong place! Nice session though!
But it's better than peeing and throwing up kids, poor Heather!
also I'm very, very disappointed in the selection for the Department of Education secretary. I feel that my 3 decades of work with handicapped, low income, immigrant and special needs children is in serious jeopardy. Sad.
Imagine what you could do if you could do what you imagine.
