Oh boy, if it's not one thing it's another.

Bad poster Kaye here, finally with a quiet morning to sit down and catch up with my favorite ladies!

Been on the run here, compiled by distractions.
Co-worker has needed some days off and working extra for her, and she goes on vacation at the end of next week so this is my last Saturday off for the next few weeks and working every day for a couple weeks.

Update and backstory: DH has ulcerative colitis and has taken daily meds for it for years (his side of the family has lots of intestinal issues, from just diverticulitis to Crohns) so his colonoscopies are complicated. He needs one about every year because he's high risk. This last one was a 'redo' with a specialist because they couldn't get past a spot to see as far as they need to. Afraid to dilate it in case it perforated, and wanted a CT scan to see if something external was preventing that. Well, he was in so much pain from the air they have to put in that gets caught in his diverticulae that he couldn't drink the liquid needed for the CT scan.
We were the first people there in the morning, and DD and I were the last people waiting at the end of the day. It's a 2 hour drive to this VA hospital, at 5 pm they say 'Okay, come back tomorrow for the CT scan at 11'
Uh, I'm supposed to work and DD has school and we live 2 hours away! Thankfully my co-worker is free and can cover for me, because DH can't drive for 24 hours.
Drive home with DH still in pain, stuck in the car for 2 hours. Try to make him as comfortable as possible and get up and head all the way back the next morning. He's feeling a bit better but not great. The imaging desk says "you're not on the schedule" Ugh... They get him in so he can start drinking the liquid stuff that takes an hour.
We were only there 1/2 a day that day. That was 2 weeks ago and by the weekend DH comes down with a terrible cold. Been a rough few for him.

Still waiting on the CT results, but he is driving back Monday for an appt. with the doctor who wants to discuss surgery to take out that chunk of intestine that's so narrow they can't do colonoscopies.
Not sure if he wants me to make the trip with him or not.

Still trying to keep DD18 on track for her (hopefully) last semester of school. Every day seems to be a new 'crisis' for her. She can be emotionally exhausting.
DD20 will be done with this community college semester next month and has had a couple job interviews but hoping for the brand new (and close) Pizza Hut to call back.

The continued cold, snow and gray skies has made it harder with everyone a bit down with some cabin fever. Had one kinda nice day last week with sun that melted a bunch of the snow. Was glad to see fields of brownish green again. Woke up the next morning and it was all white again. Sigh.

The chickens are tired of being 'cooped up' too and if it's above 40 I'll let them out. There's more daylight recently and being able to go out and peck around increases egg production. During the bitter cold they were kept in and only getting 1 or 2 eggs a day from all 4 of them. Back up to 3-4 a day now.
The local feed store has 'Chick Days' and I needed chicken food and had to promise I would not come home with any baby chicks, no matter how cute they were!
Still too cold and not set up for babies, but will order a few next month to add to our flock when it's warmer.

With being so busy and under stress, I've tried to stay on plan, but not the most successful. Stuck at 122 still, the 5 I gained last Nov/Dec, so haven't lost any, but at least haven't gained! Better get in gear because if the weather does turn, none of my shorts will fit!

Apologies for being offline lately, and this being a 'me' post. I'll go back and catch up on all your news (before the site shuts down for maintenance today at 11?)
Hugs all around and hope all my favorite petite ladies are feeling good and hoping for spring to break too!

Kaye, no apologies. Your poor husband. All these years and we never knew he had Ulcerative Colitis.

So, we aren't going away this weekend. No race. I just don't feel well and had a rough night. I was very nauseated last night. My energy level is still pretty low. We couldn't see traveling 4 hours and my trying to race when a trip to the grocery and bank exhausted me yesterday.

I have to unpack at some pont.

Hugs!!

Debbie-That's probably for the best. Stay home and rest up and try to shake that bug!

Kaye! *hugs* Prayers for DH!

MK-the pi pie was delicious!

Becky-how is mom today? Doing better?

Cindy-how was your week? Has it calmed down?

Kelly-anything happening with your boys this weekend?

The Arrow of Light ceremony/bridge over was very nice! So proud of all the boys! Out of 9, 8 of them received the arrow of light and crossed over to boy scouts. Of those 8, 3 of them earned all twenty of the Webelo activity badges.
Four of the boys have been together, in the same den, since Tigers.

Padriac went off on his first boy scout camp out this morning. They would normally leave Friday night, but to give the boys who just became scouts a chance to go, they waited until this morning. He's very excited!

Anyhow, enough rambling. Grey and rainy right now. Going to try and do some cleaning, but I doubt it will happen! ha! Have a Cookie Booth with Millie at 2 (if it doesn't rain!) and Rhonda has a sleepover birthday party at 4.

Have a great day, Ladies!

Jenn, your post wore me out. You are one busy mommy.

Still in bed. Every day I have gotten up late and gone back to bed in the afternoon. Oh well, it will have to end at some point.

I am bored but not going anywhere!!

Hi!!
Kaye - like Debbie said, didn't know your DH had problems!!
So sorry for you and him!
And I know DD's can be exhausting!
Mine are too.
I hope she graduates with no complications!!

And hugs for you too! I miss you!

Debbie - I'm so glad you didn't go!! I didn't think you sounded well enough to run and your lack of energy sounds just like when i had the flu. It was a long week - or 2 - until I felt human again.

Any thoughts on using glucosamine?

Jenn - Whew!! I'm worn out! Congrats to Padriac!! I hope he enjoys his campout too! And that your weather is warmer then ours!!

DD29 is getting a new apartment with her BF. Yes, they're moving in together.
Does it make me a bad parent/person if I just don't care?!
He's nice, he makes her happy, and she's 29 and can do what she wants!
I really feel ambivalent about the whole thing!

There seems to be three different types of flu. One is stomach. The second is body aches,fever,headache,ore throat,cough. The third is kind of a combo of the first two minus body aches and fever. Motrin helps my headaches and I try not to eat too much or I don't feel well. I wasn't nauseated early on. This has morphed.

I have done nothing today accept unpack. I stayed in bed and rested most of the time.

I never get sick for so many days and it has to end soon.

I keep seeing pictures friends are posting from Va Beach and I feel sad but I know I would have been too tired to do much there and running wasn't a good idea.

DS21 is here with his GF. DH bought fried chicken for them and rotisserie for us and they ate the I rotisserie. I told DH that DS doesn't like fried. Not sure who will eat it. My other sons are supposed to come over tomorrow. Maybe they will eat it but I think none are fans.

Watching Maryland game. They beat Duke last night which is a big deal here. Later I will watch Syracuse play Louisville for the Big East Championship. I love March madness till Syracuse loses!!

Debbie... Is it still the flu? Kim had Gracie at he doctor today and she said she has never seen a year for illness like this has been.

I had a good time with my friend at Mimi's. we're gonna go back to the Greeene (its one of those shopping centers that are built like towns) when the weather breaks and its nice, and also when I'm limited on time with my mom.

Going to do my treadmill in a few minutes

I guess it is some sort of flu. I just want it over.

Becky, do you like your new treadmill??

Syracuse on soon.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!
We'll be celebrating here today by having corned beef and cabbage (already in the crock pot) and have tickets to the Kalamazoo Wings 'green ice' hockey game today! The holiday games are usually lots of fun.

Thank you for the well wishes for DH. He's rather private has never wanted to me to discuss things about him or post his picture online. He often doesn't tell ME when he's hurting. He's ex-military so he prefers to remain as anonymous as possible!
And yet he married an ADHD extrovert!

Debbie, I'm sorry you had to cancel your trip, but it's more important you get well! Rest and fluids!

Becky, hope your mom is doing better after her fall. Glad to hear Kim and the girls are fine.

Cindy, I smiled when I saw you averted a parent visit! Hope your mom had a nice birthday.

MK, I'd prefer my girls to live with someone they might marry first, a true 'trial run' to see if truly compatible. I lived with 2 different men for 2 years each before I met and married DH. I'm so glad I did because neither were 'the one'. Your daughter is her own woman and you don't need to 'feel' anything other than happy for what makes her happy.

Kelly, Glad both boys are doing well, they younger keeping you hopping! You're just destined to smell of chlorine it seems!
Love your new avatar! *Sings California Girls*

Jenn, Busy you! Ah, the scout leader days. Been there, done that. And I made sure my troops earned a badge at each and every meeting. Yes, we'd usually do the minimum requirement, but we did it! I was the leader and could 'call it good'.."Yep, we did that"

Time for me to get it together and drop these extra pounds before it gets warm.
After green beer today!
Must find my favorite kelly green sweater and shamrock socks!

Hugs all around.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

KAYE!!! Glad to see you and hugs for you, DH and your family. I totally understand about DH being private - my DH is as well.....I sometimes get "in trouble" for posting pics with him in them on FB.....one of our good friends (like his little brother) and our niece will will spread the word and he usually isn't happy about it.........hoping the doc has some good news for DH when he returns though - in some shape or form. It's good they are being proactive about all of it though.

Hang in there with DD's......you will survive. Has DD thought about what she wants to do next year? This is a tough time for seniors - they are ready to be done, people are bugging them about what they are going to do "next year". I see it all the time.

We miss you and are always glad when you stop in for an update. Enjoy your day today - you deserve it!

Debbie - glad you didn't go on your trip - you need to get well!!!

Jenn - I do not envy all your running around! Although I did it for years! You will look back on all these years with fond memories and so will the kids!

MK - that's cool about DD!!! DD25 lived with DSIL for 2 years before they got married, DD23 has been living with her DF for a couple years......honestly - I'd rather that and they find out what the daily trials and tribulations of life are before they make it permanent. And as Kaye said - you don't need to feel anything other than being happy for her. In today's society with so many people thinking "If it doesn't work out, we can get a divorce." I think it's a good idea.

Off my soapbox now.

Been a quiet weekend.....Friday night I took charge of our night and we had sushi for appy's and then crabcakes for dinner and watched Alex Cross. Yesterday didn't do much and I couldn't sit here like DH so left, went to the bank, Walgreens and then got a coffee and walked around Target for a couple hours.....doing some decorating and redecorating so wanted ideas.....then it was home to make my Taco Casserole and we watched The Trouble with the Curve. Nice quiet evenings......the circus will be home the next couple of weekends, so enjoying the quiet.

Not sure what's up today - next week looks crazy at work again! I need to run somewhere - Old Navy maybe? - and get flip flops for an event we are doing on Wednesday........

Happy Saint Patty's Day. I should have finished a HM by now. I must be starting to feel better because I slept last night. Only woke a few times for a drink. Still congested but starting drain which is a good thing I guess.

I am going to grocery shop this morning. Billy is supposed to come over with Bella. I don't want to make her sick. She will be wanting grandpa anyways. He spoils her rotten.
Jordan and Becca might come over too. He needs to use our computer. His has Windows 8 and he has to use for work and Windows 8 doesn't work for work files.

MK, my oldest moved in with Mirsa when they were about to get engaged and his lease was ending. My middle has been living with DF for over a year. They were committed but not engaged yet. My youngest and his GF practically live together accept they don't have their own place. They can't afford it here until he gets a full time job that pays him more. That could be coming in May. If he passes his classes now he will have one class left and will take it at night.

It bothered me but I wanted to stay close to my kids and not put a wedge between us.

Never did hear if Cindy got another piercing.

My kids didn't do scouts. Oldest was a Tigercub or whatever they were called and DH took him and hated it. No dads,all moms. I think I was working.

Better take a shower and try to join the living. We'll see if my energy lasts better with decent sleep. It is 9:45 here.

I am off tomorrow too. Have errands I need to do so hope I am back to normal.

Debbie - sounds like you are on the mend!
Thinking how you, MK, and Becky have been sick recently......isn't true that we as the women in our families, just don't have time to be sick?

I never did get another piercing, but it's coming. I wasn't feeling all that great the day my friends went. They both got theirs done - one her tragus, the other her rook. My rook is not healing like it should, so I will go in on Monday when she has her specials and have her take a look and maybe get mine.....doing either my other tragus, my helix or anti tragus. I sometimes think I should have been born later.......I'd have more piercings and tats than most probably would think appropriate for someone my age.

DH had more of an issue with DDs moving in with significant others.....neither were engaged at the time, but we knew it was just a matter of time with both of them. He got over it......DD23's DF's parents weren't too keen on it, but they felt the same way you did Debbie - didn't want to drive a wedge. However, his younger sister was thrilled because it paved the way for her - she and her BF - soon to be DF, we are sure, are talking moving in together.

Still haven't moved.......

Thanks friends!!!

I don't know if they'll ever get married and right now I'm OK with that too.
I'm feeling like it's time for me to focus on my life and they need to live theirs!

I went to a 60 minute spin class this morning and am going to a movie with girlfriends this afternoon - the new one with Maggie Smith. And then to visit my friend in the hospital. She's the one that had the stroke - but is in rehab now and her DH says her PT is going really well! AND her therapist is one of Courtney's exBFs! Small world!


Debbie - I hope you feel better soon. This flu drags on forever! And yes, it morphs!

Cindy - is your piercing infected? I think I would get a tattoo if I could ever find something I'd want to wear forever. I haven't found that yet! Thanks for being on your soapbox!

Has anyone been watching Red Widow?
I just caught up. It certainly keeps you on the edge of your seat!

Kaye - how's the green beer?! Cheers!
Thanks for sharing about DH - I promise not to tell him!
And that's what we're here for - to ease YOUR worries!

Red Widow fan here!
Love it!

Haven't done much.....laundry, sorted all my lipsticks and cleaned them out. I didn't have as many as I thought! Then I made chili, boxed up some paper goods of DD23's......they have to go back - she decided they didn't work. Then DH took me to Old Navy to get my flip flops.......and I bought another blouse! Just spent 50 minutes on the treadmill. I guess that's enough!

MK - glad you are going to quit worrying! If DD is happy - I think that's what matters!!!

Had fun with Isabella. I love that she says grandma and grandpa. She is talking a lot.

I am looking forward to Revenge tonight. I really don't have many shows taping.
I like too much reality TV. I love HGTV but can't decorate or to any DYI stuff.

Feeling better. Very stuffed up. Less tired but had to come home from grocery and lie down.

MK... Brad lived with us for 2.5 years and he and Kim lived together on their own for a little over a year before the wedding. I was sad when Kim moved out but was certainly ready to get rid of him. I wouldn't remarry without living with someone first. And after seeing johns stepdad squander all of the farm and still 100,000 in debt, I wouldn't have another mans name out on our deed. Things to ponder after seeing someone throw everything away that another man worked for has made me come to those decisions. I saw how the stepdad sweet talked johns mom through the years and then did nothing but complain about the cost of her care when she was in the nursing home. And the 400 acre farm that was in Johns family for 3 generations is totally gone and the kids got nothing from it as his heirs. Nothing, it all went to the stepdad to blow. I think its pretty common nowadays for couples to live together. I don't know of any actually in the past 15-20 years that haven't lived together before they get married, and a lot of them don't even have the commitment of an engagement. Times are very different than when John and I were young, people were just starting to do that around here when we got married.

That's my soap box. Whose next? Lol

I took mom home about 5:00 but I'm not saying that on fb coz I took tomorrow off to rest and get my arm checked out. I hurt it 3 weeks ago and it feels as bad today as when I hurt it. It seems like it should be somewhat better in 3 weeks and it feels like heck! I can't tell if its from the bones, tendons, muscles or what. Tylenol and Motrin isn't even helping anymore.

Just remembered I didn't feed and water my birds today, I'll get them in the morning. I'm tired and they have enough food.

See ya guys tomorrow!

Awake. Didn't sleep great. That seems to be the theme. I am so much better. My headaches and nausea gone. Now I have cold symptoms only.

DH going to work. He would have been off but we aren't traveling back from Va. That is probably good as the weather is bad south of us.

If I feel like it I need to go to Rockville to pick up a box of contacts at the eye doctor.

Becky, I hope Kim can find a man like her father. He is out there.

Last night my DS21 went to a Capitals Hockey game with his GF. She gets tickets from step mother very once in a while. They had rink side prime sets. Poor GF got hit in the head with a puck. So far she is fine. She is fragile. She gets seizures and a migraines. She was born very early and had a rough beginning.

Thursday Future DIL having surgery at 7am. She has a breast cyst. Her mom is coming up but I will be there for my son.

I work tomorrow and Wednesday and Friday. I took next weekend off because we have another race Sunday. DS30 needs us to baby sit Saturday. We need to buy a car seat for Isabella so I may also go to that this week.

Becky, I hope your arm is OK. Did you fall???

MK, you are right. This flu keeps morphing. Now I have a cold. I do believe the Macrobid I took for my UTI gave me the stomach symptoms, headache and fatigue. Hard to know because they are listed as side effects( severe) but also flu symptoms. I finished it yesterday.


I saw Red Widow came on after Revenge. I didn't watch it. I would have to go back and watch from the beginning.

Hope everyone has a good Monday. I think Kaye's husband goes back to the doctor. I hope he doesn't need surgery.

Kelly, we haven't heard from you in a few days. I am sure we will hear from you this morning.

Jenn, are you getting snow? Nothing is cancelled here. It is just a dusting but schools in Va much further south and west are on delay or cancelled.

Happy Monday of the First Day of Spring Week!


Pretty quiet weekend - DH feels like he didn't accomplish anything - me, when I don't really accomplish anything, I still get a lot done.

Trying to figure out my Easter brunch menu - hard when you have to figure out vegan AND regular options......

My friend/coworker texted me at 5 am, she is sick with the flu - our other coworker is out this week till Wednesday. So.....it's two of us today and I am going to have to find some coverage for a couple of things we have going on today!

Becky - hope you figure out your arm - I have the tendonitis in my right arm and it was better and now it's acting up again - GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR - what a pain, right???

Debbie - glad you got some Isabella time!!!

Off and running............

Morning!

Hopping in quickly

Debbie-no snow that I'm aware of! Glad you are on the mend and hope you're right as rain soon! I love hockey! Sorry your DS's GF got whacked in the head though. I have a good friend who is fragile also. Drives me nuts because I am not that way and she complains about *everything* With scouts--we have a lot of both. We have six dens (had seven, but one just moved up) and only two of them have female leaders. A lot of moms are involved with other stuff though.

Becky-ouch! I hope there's nothing seriously wrong with your arm! Keep us posted!

Cindy-Good luck with your stuff! It's hard when you are short staffed! At least you found out early and not when she was supposed to be there!

MK-How was the movie?

Kelly-Come share your weekend with us! I'm sure it was busy!

Padraic had a great time at his camp out. I was a little worried, but everything was fine. He's looking forward to his meeting tonight. Rhonda had a super time at the sleepover birthday party she went to, too. There were four girls (including the birthday girl) and they are all friends. Have the same classes and hang out together/eat lunch/ect.

Off to make lunches and get these rugrats some breakfast before bus time!

Good morning, and Monday already, ugh, that was fast!

We had a lazy weekend, which meant all computers were busy with minecraft here. (I know, I could post from my ipad, I'm a bad poster too)

Kaye, I hope everything is okay with your DH. Mine is really private too, I understand. (for you!)
Hang in there with DD18, I'm sure she'll manage to pull it out at the last minute. (just as you pull out the last of your hair of course)

Debbie, I'm glad you didn't try to run and make yourself worse.
Isabella is just so adorable, glad you were able to spend time with her this weekend. Hopefully it made up for not being able to travel.


Jenn, you had a busy weekend, sounds like everyone had fun.

MK, at 29 she is most definitely an adult and its her decision to make.
I saw Red Widow advertised, I need to look for it on Hulu, it looked good.

Becky, how is your mom? Is your arm feeling better?

Cindy, not sure I would do very well planning a vegan menu. I think its great that you are so supportive of your DD's WOE. My mom always complains about mine. (we've now turned it into a joke because her diet is mostly junk food and soda, but still its annoying.)

Off to start my day, its week 3 day 1 of couch to 5k and this is the one that I've been dreading since its even walking/running. It looked scary to me from the start.

Hi ladies!

I hurt my arm a few weeks ago when I tripped on the treadmill at the gym and went down. It hurt at the time and has never left up. Problem is... Mom has so many appts on the days I don't have the girls that there's no room for a doc appt for me, I have one on Friday at 910 nd I'm not telling mom or there will be something she conjures up so that I have to tend to her instead of myself. Kim marked that time out. Problem with Kim's schedule is when someone finishes an appt, they make one for the next month, so for her to call and reschedule it isn't good cuz then they think "but I've had MY appt for a month". And I don't want clients getting mad and leaving cuz they are her livelihood and with none to little child support, depending on the week, she NEEDS the money. If she doesn't make enough to meet her bills then we have to help. And she works her butt off, unlike the girls father that could care less if he ends up in jail for non child support! It's a catch 22!

Going to run Hunters bd cake over in a bit. It's tinted green (white) cake with vanilla frosting with rainbow chips. So fitting for a boy we didn't think would make it to Halloween!!!

Bbl

It's my brothers birthday too Becky. My brother is 55. I am older by 15 months. My mom had all 3 of by the time she was 25. How times have changed.

Grey and rainy here but I never saw it snowing. The news sad 1-2 inches. I woke to dusting on the grass.

Spring is coming, right??

I did my couch to 5k run this morning and it wasn't as bad as I had it built up in my head. It was actually kinda funny I found myself having to slow my pace for my friend that is doing it with me. She has lost almost 10 lbs in the 2 weeks we've been running. My weight is the same, but I'm starting from a better place.
I decided to start tracking my food again. My updated plan is paleo food choices with very occasional dairy (the initial dairy thing did turn out to be a fluke MK) and adult beverages WHILE watching my calories with one cheat day a week. I had let my eating drift up with what the guys eat and actually thinking about it I should have been putting on weight like crazy at our height. The plan is to average 1700 cals/day over the course of each week. Hopefully, that along with changing up my exercise (running 3x a week and body weight exercises 2x week) will get me back to where I want to be.

Becky, I'm glad you are getting your arm looked at. You can't take care of everyone else if you don't take care of yourself.
and of course, Happy Birthday to Hunter!

Debbie, I was 27 when DS15 was born. People are always amazed at "how young" DH and I are. I wouldn't change a thing though! I had a conversation with one of the boys coaches about a mutual friend who was unhappy in his new job and when I asked if it was just a tough transition the coach said something to the effect of its time to grow up, when I was his age I had a 8y/o and 13y/o and I laughed and said when I was his age, well, I am now.

I was almost 25,27 and 34 for my boys.

Kelly, I meant to tell you have a good run this morning. Your friend has lost so fast she doesn't have much energy to run. Sounds like you are doing it right.

Being sick I have lost a few pounds and am at my lowest in around 7 years. I am sure it will come back when I go back to eating normally. I am not able to eat like I normally do. I get sick to my stomach when I eat too much.

I will be in bed early. I tried hard not to nap today. I did read a lot after running and cooking. My chicken smelled so good.

Called my brother to wish him Happy Birthday.

Debbie, my friend has quite a bit to lose. She's active but probably less active than she thinks she is (if that makes any sense) She is also changing her diet and its really low fat (lots of grains) so its probably too many things at once. Its good that we're going together though because neither of us want to let the other down.

We're having beef kabobs and a greek salad for dinner tonight. I have the beef in a marinade of EVOO and lemon juice. I thought about Becky when I cut my lemon open and one of the seeds inside had already sprouted. I wish I could get it to Becky. Its so cute. Its sitting on my kitchen counter right now because I don't have the heart to throw it away. (corny I know)

Hi!

Not sure how the day got away from me!!

Cindy - There are lots of vegan substitutions out there and you could make one dish and no one would know the difference. The vegan butter, sour cream and cream cheese are especially good.

And thanks for the support!

How is your arm doing? Mine is better - I'm finally exercising without the wrap. Fingers crossed it's easier from here on!

Debbie - poor GF!! Ouch! Did she get to keep the puck?

The first day I went to Target after 4 days of being sick was really hard! I was shaking I was so fatigued!

Hope you're better and yes, eat!

Becky - thanks for your soapbox!!
Hope your arm is better too!!

Jenn - glad the kids had a fun weekend ~ and you had 2 less to deal with!!
The movie was good!

Kelly - glad your dairy was only temporary!!
I was 25, 28, 31, and 35 when my kids were born. Sometimes I feel like I lost the really fun 10 years being pregnant!

Of course I wouldn't have traded it for anything.

I'm trying a new recipe tonight ~ Rosemary Garlic Chicken in the crock pot.
I'll keep you posted! Hopefully it's

MK, we were similar ages when we had kids.

I do eat but just can't eat much. My stomach still is a bit off and bothers me if I eat too much. I also keep it fairly bland.

Cindy, I love Pinterest for recipes. Just search under vegan brunch.

I haven't exercised in 9 days. That is a long time for me!!

I.am.wiped.

Kelly - Red Widow is on Hulu!

I have been researching the vegan recipes.....not all of them are good.
I would like to have a couple of options for DD and dessert as well. What a pain.
The biggest thing is that the vegan items are so much more expensive. It was so much easier when she was a vegetarian.

MK, thought my arm was better, but now it's acting up again.

Watching The Following, then off to bed - will catch the season finale of Deception on Hulu tomorrow.
