Good evening, Christmas family. I want to start this post by appologizing. I hope I did not offend anyone when I posted earlier about the effects eating meat based products have on me. I know most folks eat meat, my husband still does, and it's just fine. I didn't mean it to sound snobby or anything, or anti-meat. I am so sorry if I upset anyone. It is just a physical thing that happens - when the body hasn't digested meat (or probably other things it hasn't had for a long time) it causes "GI" upset. I still eat turkey and fish, just not read meat. In fact it has been 23 years since I ate red meat.

I am fine now, however. I haven't eaten anything else today except a few seconds ago I had a yogurt. Hermione decided to crawl up on my lap because she LOVES yogurt !!

I just posted a few pics of my dear sister and I on Christmas Eve in my albums here on MMC. I have been meaning to do that for a while so you can all see how wonderful my sister is. She is like the sunrise itself - Beautiful and bright and warm.

Made - Praying for you dear mom still and your niece xo I pray that the insurance company will get on the ball and allow the test soon instead of worrying about making money above patient care. I HATE insurance companies but I guess they are a necessary evil.

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend and again, I am very sorry if I offended anyone. I would never do that on purpose xo

Have a great evening, Christmas family xo

My bears send their love to all !!! xo





I said I didn't have time to respond to anything but scrolled back and saw this. You certainly didn't offend me! I have the same EXACT issue and I hate it! I am certainly not snobby when it comes to food, I just can't eat a lot of stuff, including meat. The rest of my family eat meat and I buy it for them and have no issues with it being around. I went 3 and half years of being a vegetarian and my stomach felt so much better. Then I started eating meat again almost a year ago and all of those stomach issues have came back. Now I have to just have tidbits of it here and there. Same goes with sweets, I can barely have any and I sure do miss them!!!! Sometimes I have to fast after my, as I call it, "food hangover", just to start feeling better. That is no fun because I am starving but it's the only thing to clear up the tummy issues. I am jealous of those who can eat anything and feel just fine! My mother and Wayne can and never have problems! I don't think you need to apologize! You can't help how food affects you, I know I can't help it. That is why I say, "Please offer me all the goodies you can virtually on MMC so I can pretend to indulge"! Ha ha!

To everyone here, please enjoy all the good food out there on my behalf and talk about it as much as you want! I just loved seeing those yummy cupcakes posted by Jennifer. I can't eat them but they look good!!!

Sunday, oh Sunday. My favorite day of the week! I'm going to lounge around until 10:30 or so, then I have a little work to do....but it shouldn't take too long. I'm also going to pick up the house and MAYBE wash the truck and Wifey's car....just depends if it gets warm enough.

Talk to yall later....have a great day!

He is getting only painkillers and sedative now.
No nourishment at all.. Just laying there, waiting....
It's so terrible seeing him like that. His body is preparing for death.
And we....it's so unreal. I can't belive it's true! He is dying. Slowly. Painfully.
And his mind works 100%, and thats probobly the 'worst thing'...
Lying there dying, knowing it, and you cant communicate.
He is so frustrated and helpless...

Im sorry.. I just had to put it out there.... Thanx for reading..

Now, back to you guys and MMC.
Hope everyone is doing fine!
I have some posts to read - looking forward to that ♥
He is in my thoughts.

The first segment was pretty good. The second segment was okay. The third segment was just boring.

I saw after the race that Matt Kenseth said he just didn't understand it. No one wanted to pass in that last segment. I agree with him. It was just weird. It was like no one wanted to go for the win.

I have a feeling that Thursday's races are going to be wreckfests though.

Wayne and I were very busy yesterday too. We started the day sometime around 8:00 am and didn't get home until after 7:00 pm. (Well, we did drop by the house a couple of times in the afternoon to drop things off and get a bite to eat). Anyway, we ran lots of errands, came home and took our bikes out for a ride, then headed back out again. We went out for dinner, ran more errands then came home to listen to the Greasy Skillet! We had a fun day!!! We finally got our bike rack for the car so we can take them out to the lake. I am getting excited about that!



Coach, glad your wife is feeling better!

Caninemom, I know all too well about foods that make you sick. Seems to happen to me ALL THE TIME! I hope you feel better today!!!
Sounds like a great day!

Solice- Praying for your FIL and the rest of your family.

CAH- Now that you have a bike rack for the car, you can bring your bike with you when you come to do the dishes so we can go on a ride together. You on your bike and me on the golf cart from the apartment complex.

I mean, I'm up on the times and electronics to a degree, but I really thrive for the simpler things in life....where life, family, values, faith, honesty, trust and simplicity is a key to the path of happiness. Now adays, "it's the all about me", fast pace, fast food, fast whatever lifestyles.... And for the movies and electronics, SD, HD, 3D, 4D, LED, LCD, plazma, projection, pixles per inch, Cat 6, USB, fiber optics, blue ray; ugggh when is enough enough?

Well, I do admit, at least with some things, they do look really nice but as with everything, it comes with a cost. Me, pass me the bowl of popcorn and put on an old movie like say, Captain Blood, Robin Hood, Ivanhoe, stagecoach, etc... I'm happy....
I have always felt I was born at the wrong period of time, so I know what you are saying. Going to a store that was more concerned about customer service instead of what their shareholders think. I would love to work for something like Macy's out of Miracle On 34th Street, wearing a suit & tie, and feeling like you are part of something instead of just a number. The celebrity worship is out of hand, with the likes of people who do jack squat. Technology I don't get, my TV still has a tube. My favorite music is old, my taste in Christmas music is even older. I love looking at old pictures of days gone by, they seem to speak to me, I read copies of a magazine at work called Reminisce just because I was born 20-30 years after those ads or pictures I feel a kinship to it. Heck, I still read the newspaper daily. But, I can't be without the internet, go figure.
