Had to google GMTA. Found it! Yes, they do.

Have a fabulous day.

There! I finally got around to making the avatar...
Thanks Laura, I am having a good week. Working on our project, which keeps me from getting my exercise, but am adjusting to that... It will be 'finished' soon.
Hopefully I will get my exercise when we take our bike trip. We're planning to take off on Friday, just tour around BC... not quite sure of our destinations. Will play it by ear & weather. Molly will have to stay at the petspaw. I think its good that we're only taking 2 week trips this summer... next one is end of July. At least she should get the idea that she hasn't been abandoned.
Sorry about the GMTA Cheryl... I don't know many of those, so figure you'd know at least the ones I do! Glad you figured it out.
Looking forward to seeing the naturopath on Thursday.
Have a blessed evening!

Busy day... work was crazy, trying to get everything done ahead for the trip... packing & getting stuff ready at home too.
My appointment went well with the Naturopath. She tested me & found that my adrenals are acting up, my isocort is the original, so she wants me to stay on it for a while. But my vitamin B & C levels are really low. She said the adrenals will work straight off of B & C, so put me on high doses of both. She said that should get my adrenals working properly again & that will straighten out my thyroid stuff too... so strange how its all connected. I'll go back again in 5 weeks & get re-tested, see where to go from there.
So, that's the scoop. Cheryl, maybe that will be a clue to you as well... could help.
I'm looking forward to having time off work & time to rest, but not looking forward to leaving my Molly & home. Guess I'll get over it... only 2 weeks.

Thanks Laura,
I hope your day off was good. Sounds really great that your dogs are now happy & free in your back yard. Wonderful!
I will try to check in every day while traveling & post pics when I can. Glimpses of the North..

Aw. Poor Molly! I'm glad you're taking the trip but I feel bad for dogs. I know you said it's a nice place so I'll stop feeling sad for her.

Naturopath advice: I hope it works well for you. I thought you said the original Isocort was no longer available? If it is, let me know what it's called (if something different), etc.

Stay safe! Check in often. God bless you all.

It is not available anymore. But the stuff I stocked up on is the original. So it wasn't the isocort that was causing the problem. She said its my lack of B & C... & the stress. I have been under a lot of stress at work, with new programs & budgeting... etc. Which I'm happy to say is getting straightened out now, also happy to be getting a break! LOL.

We made it to McBride BC... if you want to google that. Will be going through Jasper, AB tomorrow... beautiful, but apparently going to be raining.

My back started going out this morning, so its been kind of challenging for me. Hoping to be all better by tomorrow!

Sleep well friends!

I'm glad your naturopath was able to help! Hope you're feeling well soon. Enjoy your road trip! I'm sure it'll be lovely this time of year. and a break from work is a definite bonus! I'm sure Molly will be fine, but looking forward to her reunion with you I'm sure.

Well, if you are staying in hotels at night, try to find one with a hot tub. That should go a long way in relaxing those muscles in your back. Then a good night's sleep and maybe better posture while riding, who knows. Did you ever get that corrective bra? I remember talking about posture with you in the past.

Glad you stocked up on the original Isocort. Smart you! Stay safe and have a wonderful trip.

Hi friends,
We're enjoying exploring... I posted a bunch of pics... no explanations yet. LOL... too tired, not enough time.

Eating is strange, but enjoying it.

Hope you're all well!

Hi! Yesterday I had my jacket open, because it was too hot... a honey bee flew in my tank top! I felt it crawling on me, & then it bit me twice in my chest... got DH to stop & was able to flick him out without a sting! We got a chance to look up old friends & had lovely fellowship. Good times with old friends

Today we rode in a bit of rain today & I enjoyed it a lot more than heat!! Lazy day of travel today. 10 am to 4 pm... stopping at the sights.

Last two days of our travel... going to see more old friends tomorrow night & then home the next day.

Oh my, we stopped at a mc'd's for lunch... coffee is the only thing I could find to order. Ended up eating corn tortilla chips.

I was wondering about that too, Julie. Two bites but no sting. Sorry, Debby! Glad you're having a wonderful time on your road trip. Thanks for staying in touch. God bless you and your hubster.

Home! Happy for all of you, including Molly. I'm glad you had such a great trip. Now get some rest or get some stuff done. It's your choice.

Hi!
Thanks for the welcome home. It sure is nice to be home. Busy, busy... getting everything back to normal & catching up real good at work today.

Tomorrow is Canada Day, so its a day off.
Happily Molly is not sad this time. She seems to be thrilled to have us back & discovering her 'world' again. Tonight we went for a long walk through the tall grass (on our place) it was really funny watching her jumping up to look around The grass is as tall as me in lots of places.
I got a pleasant surprise this morning, when I stepped on the scale. I thought I could possibly be up 6-8 lbs. But I was basically the same as when I was trying to drop a few when I left. And I have a sore back, which is usually good for 3-4 lbs... so PTL!
Am enjoying eating my normal foods again, but happy that I can make reasonable exceptions for 16 days without too much damage wt. wise.
I really miss chatting with you all. Hope you're doing well.

That's wonderful, Deb! Regarding the tall grass, does anyone come and use it for hay for their cattle? Seems like someone would love to come mow and bale that precious resource up. You could make a little money in the bargain, too. They are mowing the fields at the horse farm this week and beginning to load the lofts with this years hay crop. Naturally, it's hot as hades here right now.

I'm glad to hear that Molly is her old self and not moping like last time. She's got the rhythm of it now. She knows that when she goes there that you will indeed return for her.

Happy Canada Day and enjoy your week, honey. We missed chatting with you too.

Hi Cheryl,
Sorry, I failed to identify 'hay-field'... we have a farmer that does bail it & also brings his cows on to graze the rest of it (any day now).
Yes, Molly's certainly fun & lovely to have around.

Hope you have a good day too!

Hi
Very happily my wt. is dropping daily. Is now below what it was when we left. I do believe the Sorbate (vit C) & Stress B complex are starting to work on the thyroid. Both DH & I are so relieved that I can now loosen up a bit (being careful too though), while traveling. Makes life easier for these long trips. Next one coming up the 22nd or so.

We went to DS's last night, for a late birthday celebration for GD Reese. We took Molly along & she had such a great time with all the kids. They all loved her. Reese was so sweet & happy.

Looks like we're getting a gorgeous day today. Hope yours cools off somehow!
