Hi there!

Does anyone agree with me on this one, that's posted in the rankings and winners slot?

"RedBaron wrote:Wow! I placed! (Does this mean I have to move up? It's not an EC lol.)

Because you have spent so much time as a Moderator, when others have spent their time honing their writing skills for Challenge, I think you ought to be made an honorary 'Master', Shari. :)"

Hi! 35 degrees in the Great Memphis Area this morning. Going down to 11 :brrr tonight, and 9 tomorrow night.

I just moved up to Masters. Took me two years to get there. Really don't feel comfortable there, but had to go by the rules. Shari can trade places with me if she likes! lol

Blessings, Lynn

Hi all Happy Valentine's Day! How many of you think of Valentine's day as a way to get people to buy flowers and cards and who really likes the romantic idea of it? I'm just curious. I think it can make people who don't have someone in their lives fee bad. Though my hubby gave me candy (Reese's PB cups last night) and this morning when I opened my eyes the first thing I saw was a bouquet of purple flowers on my dresser. Ahhh, guess I can't complain about it being a fake holiday :loveyou :loveyou :loveyou

Just stopping by to say hello. I was pretty busy yesterday, with my laundry and housework, then when I tried to get milk at Dollar Tree--I get the one quart tetrapacks--they were out. This is the second week this has happened. Last week they had only one , and they said the truck had just pulled in, and they should be getting it in soon. Yesterday the truck was in route, so to try this morning. But I go to the library on Wednesday mornings. But there is another Dollar Tree near where I catch the bus home, so perhaps they will have some tonight. If not, since the fridge is so packed, I'll have to buy a quart bottle--I used the last of what I bought last week this morning.
I also got another bottle of joint care tablets at Trader Joe's, then went to Target to refill one of my prescriptions and buy a second underbed box. Normally I have a wait of 20-30 minutes for my pills, but this time it was an hour. Got the underbed box, went home and re-organized my nightstand and 5 drawer cart. Next month's box will have my dresser cleaned out into it, and May's box will hopefully hold my winter blankets. Or something.

I'm going to whine just a bit. We're having a blizzard. Yes a bonafide blizzard. We have been dumped with so much snow this winter and more days where the temp was closer to 0 than 32. We even set records for the coldest March day in recorded history in Rochester NY.

Now I know Rachel up in BC gets more snow than we do and Alaska is my dream destination, but I want to go in July, not March. I guess I shouldn't whine because even though we have had several storms that dumped up to three feet in some areas, we haven't had a blizzard since 1999. I learned today that to qualify for a blizzard three things have to happen. The wind has to blow so hard, it has to snow for three hours and people have to whine about winter not ending. (Okay I admit, I forgot the last criterion.) :brrr

To make it worse, my dear friend Amy, announced she has crocuses or is it croci? starting to peek through and daffodils are starting to bud. Meanwhile, here in Western New York we are having a blizzard. :brrr

Whining over (for now) My dog is still whining, he has to go out and do his business in the cold, deep, blowing snow. At least I can do my business without snow swirling about me. (I suppose I could open the bathroom window but do I really want to emphasize with my dog?) :clown

I've come down with a head cold, but so far, I've been able to breathe through my nose and sleep well.
In Bible study, we've started a series looking at the parables of Jesus.
We may be getting a new roommate next month, to replace Cookie, who has given notice.
My roommate Diane's daughter Jessica, for whom I have a prayer request on in the appropriate forum, will be staying with us for a couple of days for a court hearing regarding child custody.
So, all in all, things are going okay.

Oh, our weather? It's warm, above average--a few records set or matched--sunny and we've had some breezes. Great weather.

Hi, last week at this time we were hunkering down for the blizzard and today it's 47.

Yesterday my nose started to feel a little stuffy, so I used my neti pot, but somehow it didn't work right--I swallowed quite a bit of the salt solution, causing me to cough and puke up the chocolate ice cream I'd had just minutes before. I haven't tossed my cookies in several years. Now my stomach feels jittery, and the back of my uvula--the little punching bag hanging in the back of the throat--is irritated and I keep coughing, which upsets my stomach more. I'm going nuts--I'm taking turns using a cough drop for my cough, then an Altoids mint for my stomach. Uggghhh, I feel yucky. I wonder if keeping just a little something in my stomach would help--I feel better after I eat, so.... (As if I wasn't having enough trouble trying to keep my weight down.....) Pray I get over this stupid cold soon.

You can also pray for my roommate C.J., who has a bad tooth, and my other roommate Becky, who acts out her dreams in her sleep and falls out of bed frequently as a result. Last month she hit her face on the closet door, giving herself a black eye; yesterday she fell out and broke two toes. And it doesn't help that she's 4' 11" and has to weigh at least 300 pounds.

My daughter has one of those little pots and it works really well for her. Of course I laugh at her when she walks about the house with a little teapot-like thing dangling from her nose.

It sounds like you have a sinus infection and the gunk is running down your throat. You may want to gargle with warm salt water, but only if you're a good gargler because as you found out it will upset your stomach if you swallow it. Stay away from dairy products as they tend to clump up together and bind with the crud in your throat. Make sure you drink lots of clear fluids (no dairy) like a lot as that will thin the mucous out.

As for eating, listen to your body for the most part. Even though I don't like chocolate, when I have a migraine, I crave it. Same thing with low potassium. I think bananas are gross, but when my potassium is low they sound good.

Because of my illness and the pain levels, I'm quite used to vomiting. I probably threw up more times last year than my husband has the whole 20 some years we've been together. I often will crave carbs after a puking spell. Rice, pasta, toast (don't use a lot of seasonings or butter) sound good to me. I think it helps soak up the extra acid and bile that is in my stomach when I've evacuated everything else. :shock:

The most important things Fluids (sips if you are still nauseated, but more as you can tolerate it), Avoid dairy products and acidic foods, and listen to your body. Feel better. :grouphug

Sorry Shann, but I gotta have dairy. Soy and other "milks" taste disgusting. When I have ice cream at night, I usually follow it with a nice cup of hot tea. Actually, it feels like there's still a few drops of the saline hiding in the nooks and crannies of my nose, and it just dribbles down the back of my throat when I least expect it. Like when I'm asleep. I think I'm starting to turn the corner a bit-- have to keep blowing my nose, but at least it's mostly clear. The only time I feel a bit yucky is when I'm hungry--go figure! The weird thing about this is, when I cough, I find myself wondering if it's the cold, or the side effect of my ACE inhibitor I take to control my high blood pressure. Once in a while my rib muscles will be a bit sore from coughing, but that's about it.

Oh, I have ice cream every night. Blue Bell's Homemade Vanilla. It may not be good for me, but it is good to me, and at my age I think I should have what I want to eat. Besides, it soothes my chemo pilled tummy!

59 degrees and sunny in the greater Memphis area this afternoon! :superhappy

I usually only buy ice cream when the weather is hot, it's on sale, and/or I have a coupon. We're heading into a cooling trend. I usually buy Thrifty ice cream from Rite Aid.

Lynn, if it makes your tummy better I say go for it! I've had a migraine and even though I need to lose like half of my body weight I say if Reese PB cups and Mt. Dew make me feel better, go for it. So if I can justify that, you certainly can justify eating ice cream. Hugs!

It snowed another inch again. Doesn't the weatherman know it is officially spring? I know if I don't like weird weather, what am I doing in Western NY? Freezing! :brrr :brrr
