I don't have any issues with the D today. But I went to bed last night with a serious upset stomach. I was so miserable. But that is gone and today it is a migraine. Ugh. It seems like it is always something anymore. Good weather and before the migraine I was able to go out and get in a walk. Also, did some housecleaning.

Janette - happy to hear that you have the weekend off. Enjoy it.

I had just a crazy busy week this week with my boss back and us trying to catch up with getting W-2's and W-3's out and state and federal Qtr reports for the 4th Qtr/end of yr and other stuff. Plus running to get supplies for the office to gear up for another year of taxes and such. Luckily I have today and this weekend off. I will be working Monday to deal with bookkeeping and payroll, plus we have clients coming into the office too. I hope you have a great weekend! Janette

I went to the gym yesterday and today. Had good workouts. Other than having too many carbs, I am doing well. I really need to stop eating so many carbs. I may not overeat during most days but what I am eating is the wrong stuff. Haven't had D since Saturday. Hope it stays that way.

Darlene - Living Lights sounds like a lot of fun. Sorry that you had D and also the computer problems. Glad that you are back.

I must have missed notices from here when I started really having problems with my computer. I have to replace the fan and possibly my hard drive. I have a fan pad that I have it sitting on now so that it will stay cool enough to use.

I had a really bad case of D today. I had been doing fairly well until today. I do think I know what it might have been this time.

I went to Living Lights with a friend of mine on Saturday. It was pretty small, but I enjoyed it. We are going to go back there during the day sometime because the area where the butterflies and moths are was too dark to see very many of them and mostly they were sleeping. They had pretty lights outside and the other animals inside were under black lights so they were glowing. They have some kind of jelly fish that doesn't look at all like the ones you always see pictures of. These looked like big mushrooms swimming around. They also had something that was in a shell similar to a clam shell that was emitting something that looked like electricity. I don't know if that could have been seen without the black light. I put some pictures on my blog.

Saturday evening I had a terrible case of D. I was really feeling awful. We had gone out to dinner and I thought that I had made some wise choices. However,for some reason something really got to me. I was hesitant to eat Sunday but things were fine. Glad that is over and hope it does not return soon.

Janette - it sounds like January is a very busy time for you in the office. I do hope things go smoothly this week.

Have a great week, everyone.

I am happy that you are feeling well. I also felt a lot better today. I consumed a lot of water and walked just under 3 miles. I think all of that helped me.

Hope everyone has a good tummy day. I am feeling better. Eating consciously is my goal today. Ignoring my health needs makes my day miserable and that certainly overflows to other areas of my life.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Today I felt a little better. Although, still have the gas symptoms. I drank a lot of water and also stayed away from foods that will bother me. Hope tomorrow is better.

Fran - I hope that you feel better soon. I like teas too and find some relief.

LINDA I am sorry you have been having such a hard time. I have been having a terrible time but it is self inflicted because I chose to ignore that I have celiac disease (diagnosed after years of thinking it was IBS alone) and ate whatever during the holidays. IBS is still a challenge for me. Lots of fennel and mint tea have helped. Some friends have picked up a stomach virus so maybe that's got you down. Hope it improves quickly. Take care.

Happy New Year.

The past two days have been really tough on me. Terrible stomach cramps. It was D but without the going to the bathroom so much more gas and cramping. I am hoping that it is getting better. Otherwise, I may make an appointment for the doctor. I am really getting sick of this. It happens too frequently. Trying to eat less junk food because I know that really aggravates it.

Happy New Year's Eve and New Year to you all! I am doing fine IBS wise. We are still having a cooler, windy, and wet weekend and new week coming. I am just planning on staying home and trying to keep our youngest dog calm from all the noise tonight.

I have the weekend off, but I could get calls about work and might have to go into work for a bit if someone has a problem come up. Sounds like I will be working in the Escondido office until April and running at least once a month to see clients, and then after the April dead line I will probably be working some at the San Diego office and working at home some too, and still going out to see clients at least once a month.

Take care and stay safe and warm everyone. Janette

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year.

During the holidays I didn't take very good care of myself and ignored my dietary needs. Sometimes because I didn't want to stand out at gatherings. Most times my inner brat just wanted the goodies. I have celiac and ignored that completely and now I am fighting to stop the cravings. Today is the day my intestines decided it had enough and showed me who was boss. Thank goodness I had adult diapers in the closet and they are my friend today. New Years party going cancelled.

I begin the new year with the recent consequences close in my thoughts! This will turn around and 2017 will find me remembering myself.

Have a good day team.

We have one day of cooler weather (around 60) but then the temps will be back up to 70s and 80s for the week. It has been a nice week to go out and walk. I am walking in spite of the cold. I also take a nap when I really feel ill. So I am getting some rest. I felt pretty well for not going overboard on food today. Hope I can do the same on Saturday when we go out.

Janette - I really hope that you can either work in the closer office or better yet, in your own home next year. That would be great!.

Happy New Year to all! emoticon emoticon

I hope you are feeling better ASAP. We had a wet Christmas weekend and into the new week. Then dried out and warmed up to the 70's, yesterday we got to 80. Then last night more storms came in and we had a wet and cold night and day. I don't think we are even going to get to 60 today. We are supposed to have a wet weekend and new week.

I had a nice Christmas. We had a nice dinner with the boy on Christmas Eve, then opened presents Christmas morning before he left with his mom for the week to go visit her dad and other family up north of us. I got a couple of gift cards from Macy's and went to use them the day after Christmas while they were having a big one day sale. I have never bought anything from them before. I went into their store years ago and got sticker price shock, saw most of their clothes were dry clean only too, so I walked back out and never went back until now. I managed to get two new dresses, a skirt and a blouse marked way down on clearance, and got other discounts on one of the dresses too. Then got a night gown, but no discounts or clearance on it. But I needed a new one, and buying it emptied the two gift cards. The place was packed with people. I don't usually go to big sales like that, or to the mall either, and especially when all the stores in the mall are running big specials. I don't like to be in really big crowds like that. But it was okay, I didn't see any one pushing, shoving or fighting over stuff like they show on TV happens the day after Thanksgiving or right before Christmas, especially at the Walmart, Best Buy and stores like that. And all the sales people were really nice and helpful.

I worked a lot of days since my boss left for Chicago, IL on the 12th of the month. Now he said yesterday that he won't be back until the 7th or 8th instead of the 2nd or 3rd, so I will still be working more days at least until he gets back. Not sure what my schedule will be then. But I could be working more days until after the April tax deadline at least. I might be working at his San Diego office and working from home some next year too from the way he has been talking. I have today through Monday off and go back on Tuesday now. But I am on call, so I could have clients and my boss calling me on my cell phone, or emailing me if issues come up before then. So I could have to run into the office for a bit if needed. Next week is going to be busy too with getting payroll out, doing lots of reports for end of month and end of quarter, and doing bookkeeping and such. And having a shorter week and being in the office by myself too for the first time trying to get it all done. So I might now be online much next week.

I hope you all have a very Happy New Year! Janette

I have had a cold and not feeling well the past few days. But D is not acting up. The weather is great. We went for a long walk today. I ate a few too many calories. But plan to do better tomorrow!!

Rain started last night and scattered showers during the morning and day. Scattered shower for the rest of the week and weekend, even Christmas day. But we still got up to the 70's in the day today in Escondido. We are suppose to be between the high 30's to the low 50's during the night this week.

I know it is so much colder other places and I am spoiled with San Diego weather. Take care, stay safe and warm everyone. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too! Janette

I woke up today and did some housework. I also took a walk. I felt pretty well today. However, I also ate light today. I have been feeling a lot of neck pain this evening. I hope I shake it by tomorrow.

Janette - we had the exact temp in Florida - 75. lol It was a nice day.

I hope you are all doing well! We had a nice and sunny day, got up to 75 this afternoon in Escondido, ca.

I had a little upset with my stomach Sunday morning. But luckily it didn't last long. We were grocery shopping when my stomach started knotting up. Luckily no problems in the store. Got home and went to the bathroom and that took care of it. And didn't happen again. Probably just a little stress from work, and maybe fighting something off too. The guys have been trading head and chest colds back and forth for a few months now. Luckily I have been able to avoid the sinus and chest infection so far this year. I am hoping that I will continue to avoid it.

Take care, stay safe and warm.

I took another walk today. I also picked up a few groceries. My nephew came through open heart surgery. Hard on a 3 year old but at least it came out okay. There are a few small complications. Hope it all works out alright. Had a belly ache and gas this evening. I thought that I was going to have D but it didn't happen. So glad.

Monday is open heart surgery for my nephew who is 3. Worried about it but trying to think of other things too in order not to build up too much anxiety. Walking all this past week. I hope to do the same this week and also adding in some strength exercises.

Janette - sorry you have so many hours to work - right at the holidays.

Darlene - are you still having problems with D? I have been okay today but I also ate lighter.

Thanks Ladies! All my best to you all. I had to work Monday through Friday this week covering the office since my boss is in Chicago. I will probably be doing the same for another week or so. I did some work at home yesterday for the office too. Take care, stay warm and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

It was nice today. We had a high in the 50s. Tomorrow won't be too bad, either, I hope. I have to go to the library tomorrow afternoon to work on my computer (or learn how to anyway). The last I saw they have forecast a couple degrees higher on Saturday, up to 9.

I am still having trouble with the D today. I finally took an Immodium, but it doesn't seem to be working at this point. Hope it kicks in soon. I just can't seem to eat anything right now, and I can't go anywhere safely. Just don't think I can take this anymore.

Janette, I'm sorry that you are having to work so much over the holidays. That sounds really stressful.

Linda, I'm sorry you are feeling bad. I got hit by the D today, too. I think it is from the tea I have been drinking because I have been cold today. It's not the coldest it is going to get this week, either. Saturday I was planning to go to a library class, but I think I might just stay under the covers here in the house. They keep changing the forecast, but it has been going from 2 to 7 degrees for the high. Not looking forward to that. I guess I might be drinking some herbal tea instead of what I was drinking today that day. Hot chocolate isn't something that my stomach is handling, either.

I had been feeling pretty well. But today I have developed D. I am sure it is from stress and also some of the food I had this evening. I ate light yesterday.and then ate a heavier meal today. I think it may have been too heavy. Hoping to go to bed a bit earlier after another Imodium.

Janette - you sound so busy at work. It is not good that you may have to work so much at the holiday season.

Things at work are busy right now, I am holding down the fort while my boss went out of the state for the holidays. I will be working Mon through at least Thursday this week. Probably the same next week. I might even go in the Monday after Christmas? Will probably end up going in on Monday the 2nd of Jan too?

Season's Greetings to you all. Janette

I have had quite a migraine today. I woke up to the throbbing pain. I did get in a walk but not as long as I would have liked The headache had subsided for awhile. But now it is back again. ugh!

Glad to hear you were able to get out and about, and figure out how to make your place warmer.

Yesterday we were around 60. I was fine in the day, but in the evening got cold and turned on a space heater. Then got really warm just before bed, so I didn't turn on the space heater in there. But my boyfriend came in later and turned it on, so with the heat from him and the two dogs too, I ended up kicking off my blanket most of the night.

We had some crazy temperatures today. It just kept going up and down. At 10:30 tonight it was 45 and I think that is warmer than most of the day today. It started out pretty warm, then would get cold, warm, cold. Mostly I did okay today, but I did take an Immodium just in case because I was going to a couple classes at the library. From the one class I got an appointment to work on my computer at the downtown library. The teacher was one of the techs from down there that actually teaches you how to fix things, but today's class was on viruses and malware. This afternoon I went to a craft class. So I didn't want to chance a problem like I had the last couple days.

I mostly have frozen in this house all winter long the last several years. The other day when I was next door I noticed they had a heat vent near the door. Well, same model and design of house as mine, except the original owners had the garage made into a family room, so I came home and pulled some things out and found I have a vent right next to the piano that was closed off. Opened that and put the "snake" in front of the door and ended up turning the heat down some. I was also working to clean stuff off my little bouncing tramp, which warmed me up a bit. Got that all cleaned; now have to figure out how to make a place to put the computer when it's not in my lap.

Thanks Darlene! I hope you feel better asap too. My boyfriend said yesterday that he thinks he is coming down with bronchitis. He slept a lot yesterday as he didn't feel good. My stomach is still a little off. Not nauseous though. I had some really short cramping the last several mornings that felt more like PMS or bladder issue. I am menopausal, but I have heard you can still have issues like PMS from your ovaries and such. It could be bladder too, as we had issues with our water earlier from them busting our water pipe when the tore up our side walk to redo it. I am going to drink some cranberry juice and or apple cider vinegar to see it that helps. I was really cold yesterday too, even though it wasn't that cold outside compared to previous days. I sat in the living room later in the afternoon with a portable heater on that really helped. And the bf put a portable heater on in the bedroom at night too, and I got hot from it like I usually do instead of freezing even with it on like I did the night before. So I probably had the chills before. Today is about the same temp and I feel fine, not freezing or hot. Just hope I can keep from getting the bronchitis from the bf now.

Have a great Sunday and new week.

Janette, I hope you feel better soon.

My friend had the stomach flu earlier this week and I started wondering about it today, though I wouldn't have gotten it from her since I haven't seen er since the day after Thanksgiving. My stomach being okay lasted one day and now even Immodium hasn't helped. I also have a cold which doesn't help matters.

We have had a really cold couple of days, but today was warmer and tomorrow is supposed to be a little warmer, drop a little on Sunday and then get back down to freezing. I was thinking I would get Fancy's food today, but had to wait until my payment cleared so won't go until Sunday. Hope I can get my gut straightened up by then. Actually hope I get it straightened out by tomorrow since I want to go to a couple classes at the libraries tomorrow.

It is 60 and cloudy right now at 1 pm here in Escondido, CA. Which really isn't that cold, but I have been feeling under the weather the last few days. Been feeling really cold and stomach is off too. I am hoping it is not the flu or other virus or cold issue. I am just dressing all bundled up the last few days, as I usually run hot and don't have to do so. Been getting my exercise in during the morning once I get up and then taking it easy the rest of the day and drinking lots of green tea.

Season's Greetings to you all. Janette

I stayed away from my hot chocolate today and haven't had any problems. Even ate the chili and the only problem with it is it doesn't taste so great anymore (had it too often).

We didn't get much snow, but it's cold and they have lowered the forecast temperature for the next week. That I don't like. I hope it is sunny and no wind on Friday because that is the warmest day other than Saturday to go out to the barn and I have a couple library classes to go to on Saturday. Then Sunday there is another drop in temperature and chance of snow (20% as of now). So today I only went out to take a birthday present next door to the little girl who will be 4 tomorrow.

I had some hot chocolate today that set off my IBS-D. I was doing fine before after having some chili, but it is colder today, so I had hot chocolate after and that did me in. Guess that packaged hot chocolate isn't for me.

We are having temperatures only in the teens the next couple days and it is snowing now through at least noon tomorrow. That is okay for tomorrow since I got the things I needed today, but Thursday I have an appointment at the library to try to figure out some things on the computer. At least, I hope the computer person can help me.

I have a cold, so today was out getting oregano oil, Coricidin and stuff for the vaporizer. I got my eucalyptus out last night and found there is hardly anything in the bottles. Can't get more of that for a while, so have used some vapor rub and will use the vaporizer tonight. I should be able to breathe then.

I am doing well. My IBS is not bothering me. I had too much sugar today. It hasn't effected my bowels yet and I hope it doesn't.

I have been walking outdoors a lot for exercise. I am getting some of the Christmas gifts ready. I mailed a couple already. Glad that I will be ready before the Christmas week. It makes for less stress.

Hope you are all doing well. I am still having a lot of heartburn on and off too. I had a cup of hot chocolate last night as it was a cold and windy night. I think that might have set it off.

Then this morning, I had oatmeal with a little honey in it and it happened again, I think the honey did it.

I've been doing okay, but need to take some gas relief tonight. I don't know what started that since when it started I hadn't eaten anything since breakfast. I did get hungry when I was out running around, so have eaten since.

I started to a program at the library, but ended up stopping at a small craft show and got a lot of creative ideas, including one that might work for the scarf I am trying to learn to knit. It is more of a large, warm collar than a long scarf. I am hoping to figure out how to do that for a man (teen age boy) in football team colors. Also, for my coasters I want to make. And a couple other things.

I am still doing fine. One of our dogs was coughing up a hair ball or something several times last night, so I had to deal with that. Twice it was laying up on the bed next to the bf when it happened. I moved her over to my side afterwards so I could keep a better watch on her as he was snoring away and didn't even wake up or no that she was sick. So washing our bedding this morning. Luckily it was more just dry hacking than anything, and she is doing fine now.

Have a great day and Happy Sunday.

Hope that everyone has a good weekend. My Friday was good. Was a little worried this morning, but nothing bad came of it.

Went looking for some better yarn to try to knit a men's scarf. Not sure if it will work or not. Guess I could do it with no pattern if nothing else, and hope I can get it done. Spent a lot of time snooping at Joann while I was there. Got the football team's colors for one of their fans.

My IBS hasn't caused too many problems for the past couple of days. Although, I have had some issues with gas. Drinking a lot of water because I know it can help me. We had some turkey breast for dinner which was very good. I started the day with yogurt and fruit. I also got in some housecleaning and took a walk today.

Darlene - that is cute that Cassie got an extra meal. I am sure she was happy about that. I do really like chili.

I've been doing okay with the IBS. Maybe shouldn't say that, since it usually ends up with things going wrong again. It is other things that have been problems lately. I was making tortilla soup on Sunday and wanted to put some cumin in it but couldn't find it. So I went to the spice shop for some. Got my curry and came home and put it in the soup, then realized that was the wrong spice. Yesterday I got the right spice, but the soup was ruined. Today I made some chili and while trying to pour off the grease and dumped half the meat out. Fortunately, the other packages hadn't frozen yet, so I got more meat out. Cassie sure had a nice extra meal.

I have been okay for the past few days with IBS-D. Although still fighting migraines. We ate pizza yesterday which really bloated me. If I don't "get regular:" I may take a laxative tomorrow. I guess I am alternating with C which happens often. I have been keeping up with exercise and drinking my water. Sometimes that even can help me. I did some gift shopping yesterday. I have to mail some gifts this week so getting them all boxed up. It certainly is busy this time of the year.

We bounced back up to close to 60 after the snow last week and tomorrow is suppose to be around 50, then drop to the 30s most of the time with some 40s. That I won't be liking.

I had a nice Thanksgiving and extra Thanksgiving on Friday. I took some pies to both and yesterday I made a baked brie and took it. It didn't turn out too well and I got there too late for anyone to want any since it was an appetizer. One lady did take some of it as like a slice of pie. She didn't know what it was. Well, looking at it you couldn't tell. The pastry came off half of it and the maple syrup and brown sugar topping it called for just rolled off the top to burn on the side of it. I might try it again, though, but in a pie pan instead of pastry. Today I roasted my turkey breast so I will have some turkey sandwiches in the future. Also making some soup for those upcoming cold days.

Hi ladies! We went from really hot days to cooler and wet days and then back to really hot days. We have a couple of different storm systems coming in this weekend. So we are getting heavy rain right now that is suppose to last all night. And then another storm coming in tomorrow too, so rain tomorrow morning and day too. We are suppose to be in the 50's - 60's in the day, and 30's - 50's at night for a bit now.

I am still doing fine with the IBS, but have been having a lot of heart burn lately. But then we have been having a lot of stuff for dinner that I know doesn't do well with me. Like pizza, tomato sauced pasta dishes, fried chicken, ham and beans and such.

We were eating on a ham for days before Thanksgiving. My boyfriend's son was going to be with his mom, her family and their friends most of his week off from school. So we were eating a ham and pizza and such before that time.

Thanksgiving it was just me and my boyfriend. He talked about wanting to cook some steaks. He was thinking of prime rib, but didn't find what he wanted at a good price he said, previous to that day. I didn't care what we ate really. And instead of him running to the store or a fast food place, we ended up eating some left over ham and bean soup that he had made a few days before.

Yesterday his son was with us and the guys talked about maybe cooking a turkey or steaks. But then they decided they would rather play games on their computers, then go shopping and spend the time cooking. So we ended up having take out fried chicken instead later that night.

Tonight the bf is taking his son and some friends of theirs to a local college football game that is going to be played in an outside stadium with no roof covering. It is raining hard already and cold. It is suppose to rain all night and only be in the 50's the whole time they are at the game. They had one guy that wasn't going to be able to make it to the game. So my boyfriend invited me at the last minute to go with them, as he was going to have an extra ticket. But I turned him down, and told him just to invite another friend of the kids to go with them. I didn't want to sit out in the cold and rain and get sick, like they will probably end up with.

Well all my best to you all always. Janette

Today I had a nice Thanksgiving dinner. We actually ate chicken for dinner. I had turkey yesterday. It was good. I had phone calls with both daughters and grandchildren. I would like to be able to spend the holidays with them next year. I normally do but we decided not to travel north this year. I don't have IBS today. I do have a lot of gas, however. Last evening was a terrible day for belly pain. It was actually more on one side than the other. I hope that if I eat less tomorrow and keep exercising, i will feel a lot better.

Darlene - I hope that you did enjoy your Thanksgiving. I know what you mean. This time of the year gets so expensive....especially Christmas.

Not too sure that Thanksgiving at the church will be a good idea after today. I had a ham sandwich for breakfast, an eclair later in the day and a Marie Callendar's grilled chicken dinner for supper. That got my IBS going. My stomach really hurts now.

I got my Thanksgiving meal stuff from the food pantry today. They had a gift card for the turkey (or whatever someone wanted for it), so I got a turkey breast. That's the first time I have just had that, but I didn't want to have part of it go to waste like usually happens because I can't get the meat off the legs. Other than that I got a pecan pie from them and the other fixings for a nice big meal. Then had to get the pumpkin pie for Thursday's meal because they didn't have them this year. This time of year really gets me totally broke.

I'm glad you are feeling better, Linda.

I have been doing somewhat better with the burning. In fact, with most of my problems. Today I ate too much so had some problems, but that went away. I know that this week I have to be careful what and how much I eat. I have a terrible habit of eating too much at holiday dinners. Thursday we are having dinner at church and I signed up to take some pies. They have invited some people from the area (or fairly close) so it should be a fair sized group.

My day was much better today. I did have some gas after eating corn on the cob. But nothing too bad. Sometimes corn can really effect me. But I seemed to do better with it today. I got a walk in today and also did some housework. So it was good to stay active and try to avoid sitting with the belly issues.

Darlene - I hope that you are feeling better today. A couple of days ago I also had severe stomach pain and acid reflux. In fact, when I went to the doctor this past week, he checked my vocal chords due to hoarseness. He said that my hoarseness may be a result of acid reflux. It seems that there are so many things that effect us.

We actually had a high of 80 on Wednesday. Yesterday we got to 34 and got the first snow of the season. I've been trying to get things done to keep it warmer in this house. I finally got the plastic over the window and got the sheet back up that is used for curtains. I hope that plastic window film will stay up. It is the kind you put up with double-sided tape and it didn't want to stick to the tape.

Yesterday my stomach was burning all day. I had taken several gas relief and ended up messaging the Dr. office. Then thought of taking a generic Tums. I think that helped. When the nurse responded to my message she said not to have spicy or greasy food and to go ahead and keep taking the gas relief and maybe some Tums. Also there are appointments available, but I could tell they aren't with my Dr. Today I did okay, so I am going to see if I can just follow what I did today. If it works out, I will just make my regular appointment in January.

Hope the weekend finds everyone well.

We also had the upper 70s today. Cassie and I went out to see Fancy and groom her. She was doing really well. Then we went to Murdoch's because I wanted to find out about some clippers I was interested in and if they had a layaway system. Turned out the clippers are only good for muzzle trim and I need something to get rid of the long hair all over her in the spring. I can't take her up to the barn anymore because she won't leave Jack, her buddy.

Anyway, I got Cassie a new brush and some dog biscuits. She was in her seat belt harness, hooked up, and I went to the camera store. Somehow, she managed to get to the biscuits and ate all of them. You'd think I starved her. She also was cleaning the kibbles that were leaking out of a torn bag.

We have one more really warm day like today. Then in the 40s. I have to get the switch changed to hopefully separate the fan and the lights in the bathroom tomorrow, see if any tomatoes are good to pick, and try to insulate the windows in the bedroom and bathroom I am using now. I wonder if the regular window film over the bedroom window and bubble wrap over the windows that open and in the bathroom. Do you think that would keep things a little warmer? It is really cold in there in the mornings even before it has turned cold.

Darlene, I am having the same problem with our youngest dog. She keeps waking me up an hour or so before I want to get up in the morning. And a lot of times both the dogs wake me up in the middle of the night too because they hear a cat or something.

We were really warm yesterday. Today we are in the high 70's, so a beautiful day in So Ca. I had to work yesterday. Today I have the day off and I am doing housework. And tomorrow I go back to work.

Take care everyone. Janette

Today we had around 70 degrees and I was going to go back out to the barn, but I didn't get enough sleep last night and was falling asleep about the time I was going to go. Tomorrow is suppose to be close to 80 so I will go then. I did go on Sunday and got feed, but a cold breeze came up and just kept going right through my sweater and sweat shirt and I didn't have any other jacket, so didn't really want to be cold while I was there. I wanted to relax while grooming Fancy.

Other than being so sleepy (Orzo doesn't believe in letting me sleep long enough in the mornings), I have been doing okay today.

Maybe you are not getting enough iron, or maybe you are losing with an un-diagnosed bleed some where, or maybe some other health issue making you look pale?

I don't mind them marching and protesting as long as they are doing it peacefully and not vandalizing property. I know that a lot of people have questions to if the two major parties were doing anything to change the out come that would be considered voter tampering. So I can understand the different points of view and them being upset. But I don't like to hear about they setting fires and destroying property. Someone set a canyon on fire in San Diego, don't know if it was part of the protesting or not yet. Luckily I think it just burned a lot of over grown vegetation and maybe some homeless camps. But I don't think anyone was hurt, or homes and or businesses burned down.

Take care

We were fortunate here that the protest remained peaceful, though they did go down and block the main highway through the city. They had one gal on the news who said "I" didn't vote for him (then corrected to he didn't get the popular vote), but that attitude that if "I" didn't approve, the rest of your votes don't count is really showing how bad things have gotten in this country. Too much of this "I am entitled and you aren't" mentality.

I ended up having to take 2 immodium last night. Not sure what was causing the problem. I fixed some chicken and stuffing for supper and did okay with that, but that was after the Immodium. Someone also told me I was very pale yesterday, so I don't know what that was about. They followed me a little ways when I left the Bible Study, but I was okay by then. Today I am feeling okay and Cassie and I went out for a walk.

I have only seen the marches and riots on tv so far. But I have relatives and friends in near by cities and also in other states that are getting stuck in traffic jams from them. My sister that is in down town San Diego not that far from me and a cousin that is really close to where I live keep running into them while they are just going about their normal business. My bf had to go up to LA late last night for his work. We had seen and heard on tv and from other co-workers up there that they are having a lot of marches and riots up there. I saw on tv where they were doing it last night while he was still on his way up there. Luckily he said he didn't see any of it or have problems with traffic from it. But he said when he got up there they were having a power outage for a bit. Not sure if it had anything to do with the marching and riots or not. Luckily it didn't last long and he was able to get his work done and get back home safely early this morning.

I have had friends and relatives that have kids and grand kids in colleges where it is happening at and some of them are scared and hiding out in their dorm rooms from it.

Glad to hear you are feeling better Linda. I am still doing good with it.

Take care everyone

I agree, Janette. It really is sad about the protests and especially the ones turning violent over the recent election. I felt much better today. But I also did eat much lighter. I have been sipping on a lot of water. No sugar today - I think that may have helped.

I hope you both get better sleep tonight. I had that problem last week so I missed my Bible study Friday.

Janette, I would like to be able to take a long, hot shower, especially since I use one of those shower heads that has a low massage, high massage and regular spray (though I need a new one). I have a hand held one so I can move it to where I need it. But my shower turns ice cold within 5 minutes. So I fill the tub with hot water and lay there and soak. My back and hip problems are on the right side usually. I know there is a degenerating disc, but I think almost all the back problem is because of my gall bladder. Not really sure why the hip hurts. Both of them will hurt and MRI showed the left hip was more affected by the chemo, but it is usually the right one that will cause problems. Not very often, though.

I do put the little bit of ACV in the apple juice. That is how the natural treatments that the doctor sent say to do it. That other apple juice just tasted terrible, I think.

Well, today the D was hitting again. I guess it just didn't like eggs today since that is what I had for breakfast. Or maybe it didn't like the salsa or ham.

Ham is one thing that I didn't like for a while. My Dad would make me lunch that I could take to work with me every day and it was almost always ham sandwiches. I got to where I couldn't stand it. When I started eating some ham after that I had to have spicy mustard or peanut butter on the sandwich or I couldn't eat it. I did like it with the potatoes and cheese, though. That is one of my favorite things (and one I eat too much of). We also used to make that potato dish with roast beef.
