I had a dream last night that I was having some kind of a party, where they sell stuff, and everybody started coming and I'd forgotten about it and we just had the party right in the middle of the disastrous house. Nightmare!!! Lol.

Yes, I wish Buffy would check in!

MK, does your DS know that we expect a trip report with details when he gets home. I hope that's an assignment and that you can snag a copy to share with us. It would be so interesting to hear his activity side of the itinery.
Oh, I'd sure take the bigger boobs part of being PG, just none of the other parts, lolol. I'm surprised nobody has marketed some scam promising PG Boobs, in just 5 min per day, lol.
Sandy that's my only dissatisfaction with my house being a disaster.
People dropping by unexpectedly.
I have Christmas in various stages of being transferred - we still have unwrapped presents in the living room. Was that too much information to reveal? If someone dropped by I'd be mortified. I wish I'd dream about it!

OK really. Back to work Judy.

Good morning
Sounds like "Fly Lady" is needed here... I'll have to send her an invite to this thread.
So Mary Kay, is your son coming home again soon? I think I missed something here.

Hope Buffy's feeling better. Glad Sandy is!

I missed my chat with dh last night. His partner forgot to send me his motel phone number.

Going to a neighbor's for dinner. Think I will just "wing" it tonight. See how that goes. Very nice of her to invite me.

See you later!

Debby I just love Fly lady. Pam Young's site is where I hang out . Yesterday she made tortillas with coconut flour and egg whites. Had to make them and loved the way they turned out. I had a scrambled egg burrito for breakfast this morning with lots of coconut oil. Delish.

Hi Sharon!
I've seen a few recipe sites lately with crepes/tortillas with a huge amount of egg whites and they looked so light and fluffy and do-able. And some people are using them for enchilada wraps, etc.

These smart recipe people are making low carb a wonderful way of life.

Dear Friends, I am having quite an adventure getting to th e bottom of my headaches. Last night finally made me move on it. Went to chiro, he ckd BP and it was ok and I felt soso. Left there and got a really bad headache soon after. Took tylenol and felt ok till about 7, then atarted feeling sick, dizzy and then blurry vision, really bad headache. DH said he was about to call 911 and Isaid no, but I was ready to let him take me to emergency room. OFF We went, got there about 9 pm, there were 6 ahead of us and all beds full but they did take my BP and it was 220 over 121 so they put me in the next bed. Did blood woek, other tests and a cat scan. Spot on cat scan and since they didn't have a neurosurgeon on staff, they took me by ambulance to a sister hospital in Dallas, wouldnt let DH take me bc of BP. 2nd hospital did more tests and could lower BP but it is noon and I am still in their ER. As soon as meds wear off or I get up to go to bathroom it climbs right back up. 2nd cat scan showedspot which neuro iditified as an old malformatin which we knew about, had nothing to do with the BP spiking. She did identify the pain i hane been having in the back of my neck and probably what stared the headaches. Occipital inflammation from some unknown cause, Sais to take prescription doses od advil for 2 weeks and if that didnt take care of it, then a steroid shot in the area. So, seems like I now have 2 issues going on, not sure if that pain could have had anything to do with BP going whacko, but now waiting for a cardiologist to see me to discuss that and a plan of action. Had to switch aroune BP meds once in the past. Sorry for all the errors, typing with 2 fingers on Ipad

OMG Buffy!

I was so worried about something like this.
THANK YOU for agreeing to go to the hospital(s).

The headaches were a warning sign - could the BP rise be a response to the pain??

Oh my Buffy! I'm so glad you went to the ER and so glad they're getting to the bottom of these headaches and bp problems. You'll definitely be in my prayers. And thank you so much for checking in with us. We've all been so worried about you.

Buffy! You know, some of my friends have had their blood pressure go up just from pain. I hope they find the answers. Meanwhile take it easy!!

Yum Sharon! Sounds good. Too bad I don't have energy for cooking.

My neighbor where I'm going for dinner is about a mile away. I have other neighbors that are 3/4 mile away though. (getting so crowded - my dh says)!

My head is spinning... trying to figure out computer specks... My friend the techy is sending me quotes.

Buffy, with BP like that (220's/120's) and a "spot" on your CT scan, I would worry about a small intercrainial bleed or possible small aneurism. But remember, I'm an old ICU nurse so I always see the worst. Please keep us informed. Your BP is better now?

Yes Cindy, exactly what they were looking for and I have had two, so it was a relief to rule that out. Hoping the BP is in response to pain, it has been better this afternoon and I am taking meds for the headaches regularly.

Thank You for being such dear friends, after I had reported to the kids I told DH that I must report in to my cyber buds

Glad you are a bit better. Taking headache meds might help get control of the pain.

Keeping you on my prayers for total healing. Big hugs.

I confess I was wringing my hands.

I guess you are home now? Do you need anything? It's just a short drive...

Carolyn I've printed your deep dish pizza recipe. That looks like a better description for my next time of making pizza. We both really liked Maria's crust, so your description of how much (or little) water to add will no doubt help me keep it crisper.

Pressing that sausage (out of casing) onto the cheese is brilliant. Adding the sauce (homemade!) on top of all THAT is more brilliant!

Buffy when you get well you'll need to try this pizza recipe. It sounds just perfect.

- - -
Deep Dish Pizza CarolynF

I got a 12 inch deep dish pizza pan and sprayed the bottom and put
in parchment paper and sprayed that..

Preheat oven to 375.

***Start your sauce

Crust is basically Maria's Healthified Pizza Crust with some tweaks:

1 1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup plain protein powder
4 Tbs. psyllium husk powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. grated parmesan
1 Tbs. Italian seasoning
2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
Boiling water (start with a drizzle until a ball forms, then stop)

Mix dry ingredients, then add eggs and mix well... If this is still dry, add water very slowly, very slowly. Then let it sit for a little bit. Then plop the crust into the prepared pan (you could use a cake pan). Spread it out with your palm sprayed with Pam so it doesn't stick. I went up the sides, too and it stayed up great.

On the bottom of the crust add mozzarella cheese, either slices or 2 cups of
shredded.

Next layer is raw Italian sausage. I used a whole package of the Italian links (sweet) from Johnsonville.5 or 6 I slit the casings and put the raw meat in a bowl, then pressed it firmly onto the cheese so it would cook evenly.

***Next layer is one 14 ounce can of diced tomatoes cooked for about 15 minutes in a saucepan with Italian seasoning, onion powder (or fresh diced onion), garlic powder, etc... all to taste. You could also use green pepper or whatever tiny bits of veggies you would like.

Spread the sauce over the top and then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, then slice...

Oh my goodness. So easy and good.

My pizza is gone..gone..I asked ds to come over and he thought it was great and took a piece home with him. Dh said that the crust was fabulous as was the other ingredients.

The "key" is not to add much water. If it is too watery just by adding the eggs, then add more almond flour until it is like a sticky cookie dough..

Oh...hoping our Buffy is better tomorrow...really better..Sandy, is she at the hospital? I was wondering if they sent her home today..

So, I enjoyed working out inside this afternoon, before dinner.
The dinner went really well. She invited 2 other neighbors that I don't know too well, so that was nice to get to know them a bit. One lost his wife last year (I didn't know that) he's 90 yrs. old. The other is a German & his wife & kids took a 2 week trip to Germany.So she had all of us "left-behinds" over for dinner. She actually served stuff I could eat! I was prepared to go off my diet to be polite, but didn't have to, she had such a variety. But of course I skipped dessert.
Unfortunately... her husband was sneezing & coughing & blowing his nose the whole time. Came home & loaded up on my cold-fighter vitamins.
Shelby & Coogey had a blast playing. I got Shelby to run to the driveway out & back... she's dead to the world now! Totally worn out.

I also got to talk with DH. He's looking forward to coming home. Wandering around by himself in a tourist town by himself, no fun to swim alone. So now all he wants to do is come home.

Hi Ladies,

I don't like to vacation alone. It's fine with a tour group, but not totally by myself. I'm sure your dh is ready to come home. He had quite the adventure.

MK, will your son have a few days at home after his trip??

Oh, just wondering how our Buffy is this morning

I love your description of the guests and your day.
My DH and I are convinced that all of you all are WAY too young to be our friends. We seem to be able to relate best (and vice-versa) to people aged 80 and above. They are usually good-natured folks who "get" our sense of humor.

Now that I have "met" you all, I'll maybe be able to lower the age requirement for friendship.

So glad you got to talk to your DH and I am with Carolyn - I have vacationed alone and I won't do it again. I could see myself in a tour group, but not completely alone.
Guys secretly like large portions of traveling alone, though, I think.

Good question, Carolyn and I look forward to hearing whether DS will be home for a little bit after his adventure.

to Buffy when she can check in.
Prayers for her!

We did cave tubing. A river ran thru a series of caves and we had helmets with lights on our heads. It was really cool.

Buff, how are you doing today?

Oh, just wondering how our Buffy is this morning
No, that's true. He's just alone in the daytime. They're actually staying in a hostel with a 15 young tourists in the same room. He played Yahtzee with them last night. Fortunately he is now enjoying some good Mexican food. His friend is being fitted with teeth implants, so its going to be a few days. They may go fishing too, which will be fun.

My DH and I are convinced that all of you all are WAY too young to be our friends. We seem to be able to relate best (and vice-versa) to people aged 80 and above. They are usually good-natured folks who "get" our sense of humor.

Now that I have "met" you all, I'll maybe be able to lower the age requirement for friendship.

So glad you got to talk to your DH and I am with Carolyn - I have vacationed alone and I won't do it again. I could see myself in a tour group, but not completely alone.
Guys secretly like large portions of traveling alone, though, I think.

Good question, Carolyn and I look forward to hearing whether DS will be home for a little bit after his adventure.

to Buffy when she can check in.
Prayers for her!
I love your sense of humor Judy. You don't seem like an old fuddy-duddy to me!

Buff, how are you doing today?
We did the caves too. It was fun & interesting. The Mayan man that gave us the tour was the same age as I was at the time. 53 I think... He had 26 children! And I forget how many grandchildren. His youngest was just a baby. Kept pointing out plants that were good for pre-childbirth; after childbirth; etc... He'd know!
