We're a group dedicated to motivating each other through our daily diet/exercise/life struggles and just "being here" for one another!
Anyone is welcome to join us in our conversations--the more the merrier!

First of all, I just want to say :thanks: a huge THANK YOU to all of you guys for helping me and thinking of me while I was having a rough time.
Gayle, thank you so much for keeping the threads going for us--you did such a wonderful job!!!!!! I remember when Sherry used to do the polls and I loved answering them--I don't know why I haven't done any as moderator. Just not thinking, I guess. Par for the course for me :?:
Cat is doing better with the modifed diet. I have to take her in a week from Monday and get her sugar tested again.
I'm a "school-bus" eater. I was conditioned as a child to eat as soon as I got off the bus, then I'd eat supper later that night, too. To this day, as soon as I get home from work I want to EAT!
09-25-2006, 04:01 PM
even though I have lunch for an hour than a last class and go home an hour later I still munch on something afterschool , healthy choices of course but I do munch.
09-25-2006, 04:16 PM
I just had a thought that I posted in another thread that I wanted to share here with my girls....
Itsw about how i felt and was 3 or so years ago
When your a teen and unhappy about somehting like weight , It can be some of the most tramatizing moments . When I was 13 I was called so many names that even to this day I shutter and really have such a hard time even speaking of the names I was called.
I once went shoppping with my mom when I was 13 and go so upset in the ar that nothing really fit me anymore and it was raining so hard , that I started crying as soon as we got into the car. I couldnt hold it. I told her what the kids called me and how much it was hurting me, I screamed in the car and I remember sitting there for at least 45 minutes bawling while my mom held me and rubbed my back and hair. I almost threw up in the car I was crying so much! I then went on the atkins and lost at least 25 lbs , but I didnt realize it was a lifestyle thing and gained it back but funny how the name calling ended when I lost weight and those kids tried to be my friend once I wasnt a cow anymore. even though I gained some weight back kids never called me names since but I still havent forgotten. I had suicidal thoughts at that period in my life. When walking to school I would think , if I jump in front of that car what will happen... mind you I am 12-13 years old!!! Thats how much it can affect you!
Then I went through the ridicule of teenage boys . A kid named tyler , thought it would be funny to ask me out , so he did and I was like uh ok , I didnt realize why this boy wanted to ask me out I thought he genuinelly liked me , well it was a joke by the end of the day all him and his friends were laughing at me making fun of me.That pushed me further twords the bridge. I truelt think my best friend saved my life. I tell her that all the day , cause days i sat in my room alone with a razor or thought about the jumping in front of cars , were before I met her. I had almost no friends. No good ones anyway. I was about done with life, than I met her and suprisingly the first time I met her I was like Uh ok this girls a bee-otch dont talk to her , than she prceeded to show me a pciture of her teeth cause she was getting braces. Im ok werido really dont talk to this girl . Well after time she is my best friend. She is the friend I saw last week who noticed my weight change. She is truely my sister . I love her to death . If she died somehow I dont know how I would go on , she makes me so happy. !!
so I know how it feels. ant seem to get rid of those memories , I guess thats why I am so motivated to lose weight.

Been there and done this, except with me it was in college. One of the basketball players thought it would be "funny" if he told me a teammate wanted to go out with me. I knew he was being cruel, but it still hurt. The other basketball player was actually the one who made me feel better (he told me Micah was an a--h--- and to ignore him). Still, though, once the words are out they HURT.
:hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:
Tell that friend how much you appreciate her!!!!!!!

Isn't it horrible how we feel about ourselves based on what others say to us? Shouldn't we feel good about ourselves because of what we do rather than what we look like? I often think that every teenager goes through this trauma. I'm involved in a Mother/Daughter charitable organization and believe me, we have all kinds (short, tall, fat, skinny, cute, homely, etc.). Listening to the girls talking amongst themselves, you hear that every one of them has had to deal with some kind of "trauma" brought on by another teen's horrible words (and unfortunately, it doesn't necessarily stop when we cease to be teenagers). I've always maintained the thought that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all, but I've learned that some folks' comments, while not meant to be rude/hateful on the spot, can be interpreted by others as just that. I remember the days of coming home from middle school just to lie on my bed and cry. I wouldn't necessarily even remember what made me cry--i just needed to cry. My Mom would be all worried but of course couldn't say the things I needed to hear to make me stop crying. I think that sometimes, we all just need a great big hug from the heart.:hug:
09-25-2006, 11:33 PM
Vouge, I can just imagine how you felt. Once you are through with the teenage years, you will realize there is so much more then appearance. Hopefully the kids you go to school with will realize this too. In fact, I have a feeling you are very mature and understand what I am talking about. If the kids at school don't realize how great you are, it is their loss because you are a fabulous person! I believe people come into our lives when we need them the most. Your friend is also your angel to help you through the rough times. I bet she counts her blessings too, to have a friend like you.
CHERYL! YOUR BACK! HAPPY, HAPPY DANCE! LOVE YA! I wondered how kitty was doing!
09-26-2006, 06:02 AM
Vogue-I don't even know what to say. Kids can be so cruel, even older kids. Have you gone through any type of therapy or to a nutritionist? I really wish you would eat a healthy diet, not lopsided. Weight watchers or South Beach are both such a healthy way of eating. I have been through so many diets in my lifetime, that I have learned that you have to eat from all food groups in order to substain a weight. I am so thankful that you have found this group of ladies to help you through your struggling teen years.
Cheryl-Yay!! You are back and you were sorely missed, even though Gayle did an awesome job.
Monica-Good for you on trying to quit. I can't imagine how hard it would be to stop smoking and eat healthy at the same time!
09-26-2006, 06:44 AM
Hi there. Could I join this support group? Let's see...a brief intro:
my name is Crystal, I'm 29 years old, been married 11 years on the 30th of this month. I have four children: Alisa will be eight on the 9th, Ally is 5, Andrew is 3 1/2 and Allison is about 20 months.
I was a part of a group on 3fc during my last pregnancy and afterwards, just faded away.
I lost 30 pounds last year all on my own, but have gained back 20 pounds. I need support.
I had been a stay at home mom until this year. I had homeschooled, but 2 of them started school and I have a job as a teachers aide in a K class at a private school. I work 5 days a week from 8 to noon. It's a fantastic job.
I'm loving staying busy but I'm eating worse.
I did GREAT yesterday. I saw an open bag of donut holes in my classroom and almost stuck my hand in there...I walked away. It was really a test for me and I passed.
I hope to meet all of you and get the support I need and give the support I know I have.
Thanks so much.
09-26-2006, 06:59 AM
Thanks everyone , for some reason I think everyone goes through some sort of a tramua from the time they are 12-13 to around mid 20's . weather a parents or friend dies or pet or weight issues, a period of drugs whatever the matter I belive thats when god is testing our spirtis and showing us a part of life to makes us stronger in the long run. If I never went through that I would have been so hurt so played so tricked so many times I dont think I would have been able to withstand it .
and yeah I have told her before . I love her so much! She is amazed . She really saved my life without her realizing it , and she gave me a big hug for like an hour after I explained that to her. If it werent for her , i dont know if I would be here today thats how much it hurt , everyday , Id didnt know how much longer I coul go on , i felt like everyone was always laughing and talking about me and thats how it would be all my life. I never told my mom any of this but the time I said I was crying in the rain , cause I didnt want to hurt her.
But life is so much better for me. I am so much happier ,I have so many goals and dreams , I could never think that again . I do think sometimes I will be alone forever but thats just called being 16 and having no boyfriend ahah. I think that though if I were to be alone my whole life I would be ok , cause so far so good , I have been fine alone , so if he comes along thats amazing but if he doesnt than i am just as happy.
Dean-I believe people come into our lives when we need them the most. Your friend is also your angel to help you through the rough times- She found our on new years last year her mom was a crack addict , her dad smoked pot and was an alcoholic , she moved out of there house and has had to cal the cops a few times and social services on her parents for going crazy . Her mom tried to beat her up once and she hid in a room and cut her wrists to piss off her mom so she ended up in a mental insttuition. ( Wow life can get twisted. ) Her mom tried ot pick her up and she would rather stay int eh mental place for another day than go wiht her. She calls me on the phone when she sneaked out of her room cause who do you think she wanted support from? Who is the one person she just wanted to hear its going to be ok from?
She hasnt done it since but we still kinda joke about the mental instuituion and the pepole she saw there.
Shelly- No I havent but I have read a few psycology books and i recognize my feelings and problems , that I wont do something extreme. No i havent seen a nutritionist , I am on the atkins diet and after ward I am going to be a vegitarian to maintain my weight and a personal choice but thanks! xoxo
09-26-2006, 07:00 AM
Of course welcome!!!!!!!!!
09-26-2006, 09:22 AM
Good Morning All,
Cheryl - Welcome back!!!!! Glad all in your life is a bit better. An easy time....not for me. All day is hard. Might be 'cause I am retired now and home all day, or because before I would grab a cigarette when I wanted something to eat.
Gayle - Thanks for filling in, you always do such a GREAT job.
Vouge - Kids are TUFF!! I am glad you found a true friend and that you are doing better.
Shelley - Thanks! It is very hard but it is something I want to do for me so I hope I can. Yesterday was a bad day, had 5 but I didn't eat much, my stomach wasn't feeling very good, but today is a new day. Been up for 4 hrs and still smoke free for the day.
Crystal - WELCOME This is a very diverse group of ladies. I might be the oldest but I am still learning. I had 4 girls in 10 years, all before I was 30 so I can relate. Mine are all adults now and on their own, but they are so very close to one another.
Take care all, I hope to be back home tomorrow. I love these grandbabies, but I know why God makes young mothers.
09-26-2006, 09:32 AM
Crystal, WELCOME! WELCOME! Feel free to come here anytime! We are a great group of ladies in all ages! I am 43 with two kids 21 & 7 and am married to a wonderful man. Not so the first time around! LOL!
You will find support here! Just pull up a chair, pour you something to drink and just start chatting. Some of us check in throughout the day at different times, so hopefully we will be here when you need us.
Cheryl, did I tell you I'm happy your back sweetie??? LOL!
Allison, it is so true...teens can say and do horrible things and some never out-grow it in adulthood.
Shelley, I'm sure you experienced a few tears with your two daughters. I guess it is all part of life and hopefully, even with cruel remarks, something good will come of it.
Monica, I quit smoking and gained 30 pounds! BUT the difference is, I didn't realize I ran a higher chance of gaining and I should of found something to do to keep me busy other then stuffing food in my mouth. GOOD LUCK! I FEEL FOR YOU!
Vouge, it sounds like the two of you girls are really good for each other. Is your friend still at home? Is her life better? How sad she has experienced so much in her short life.
Well, I better go! See you all later today!
09-26-2006, 09:57 AM
I'm glad to be back!!
I hope all of you are getting nice weather like Arkansas is right now! It's beautiful outside!
09-26-2006, 11:10 AM
Crystal--welcome! I'm a fairly new member here, too
Cheryl--we did miss you. I'm glad you're back. Let's get rid of that green frown!!
Gayle--your avatar is pretty--did you make that yourself?
Well, my news for the day: I've met my September goal (lose 4 pounds) with 4 days to spare!!!!!
09-26-2006, 11:22 AM
GREAT JOB ALLISON! :carrot:
SO VERY PROUD OF YOU!!! :hug:
09-26-2006, 11:23 AM
Allison, I have a friend on another group who made it for me. It is pretty, isn't it? The only difference is, with the original before she added my name, the rhinestones would glitter and flash.
09-26-2006, 03:40 PM
Gdean- She is living with her aunt and much happier , she used to have to babysit and take care of her mom before now she can be a kind. Thanks for your conern.
Everyone else- Thanks for everything. xoxo
09-26-2006, 04:54 PM
Lookey--I finally got my OWN doggies on my avatar. No more "generic" lab!
09-26-2006, 06:19 PM
Such Sweeties Allison!
09-26-2006, 07:43 PM
Allison - your dogs are beautiful!! CONGRATULATIONS on the Weight Loss
Vouge - you sound like you have it together. Don't worry about the cruelty of others. There will always be people in life like that. Ingore them and know who you are inside - such a beautiful young spirit you have.
I weighed in at WW today I finally lost - after weeks of gaining and not being able to get back on program.
I lost 1.4 lbs this week. I must say I am proud of myself.
It is such a struggle to keep on track.
09-26-2006, 07:53 PM
Busy, busy day here today! I spent the whole day at Aunt Hazel's doing yard work...I mowed, push mowed, pulled weeds, cut back flowers, trimmed all the hedges and raked and hauled away all the trimmings! Quite the workout!!!
Tomorrow I'm doing the same thing all over again here at home! I really need to get things ship shape before Tim's brother and sister-in-law get here next week.
Cheryl ~ Welcome back! :hug:
Crystal ~ Welcome to the group! I'm looking forward to getting to know you!
Ali ~ Congratulations on meeting your September goal...and early no less! Way to go!!!
Monica ~ Dieting and quitting smoking at the same time is not easy! I wish you lots of luck!
Vogue ~ Hugs to you! The teen years are hard no matter what size you are...I wouldn't relive those years for all the money in the world! Hang on to those friends who are true and love you for who you are on the inside...they are the ones that you will be able to count on for the rest of your life.
Janice ~ Way to go on your loss this week! You are really on the right track now!
Gayle ~ How are things going at your house? Has Allison gotten her braces yet?
09-26-2006, 09:22 PM
Good evening everyone. Thank you all so much for the welcome.
I did pretty good today, although there was a fundraiser event for my work, a private school, at cici's pizza. I didn't do as terrible as I could have and did great all day long. I went walking and jogging at the park today, ate Subway for lunch.
Okay, well I have a baby crying at my legs and I need a shower.
I'll check in in the morning.
Thanks again so much.
Have a great night.
09-27-2006, 07:18 AM
claps for cole and allison ( for getting her own dogs on her avy hahah)
Thanks suzy I will hang on forever. i think cause of that period of my life I cherise friendship more than anything else on earth.
crystal did I give you a welcome? well here ...bonjour, hola, jambo, hello, hi, yo , wazzap, kazumtite? haha welcome crystal
09-27-2006, 09:19 AM
Off to work, so no time to post this morning!
Crystal, I remember the days of trying to get something done with a crying baby. I hope you were able to get your shower and rest.
09-27-2006, 11:22 AM
Coles--thanks and congratulations on the 1.4 pounds lost! Doesn't it feel good to be going in the right direction again!!!
SuzyMc--wow, what a workout! You must have been exhausted!!!
Crystal--I feel for you. My kids are way past the crying stage, but I remember how difficult it could be to get things done (like exercising) but it sounds like you've got it all together!
Gayle--hope your day at work goes well. That's where I am now!
09-27-2006, 05:48 PM
Sorry that I don't have time to catch up with everyone. I haven't even the time to read the last thread yet.
What is up with me the last few days.......let's see......I have started spanish classes, I am a victim to spending 2-3 hours a day at the Y taking classes working out at the gym, aqua and swimming, plus I am walking there and back.
It has cooled off so I am spending less time outdoors. I guess that is why I am at the Y more.
Time to get my Shrimp Linguine started.
Have a good one everyone.
09-28-2006, 12:22 AM
Janice, CONGRATS on the weight loss!!! YIPPEEE!!! Goal in no time at all!
Vouge, do you take your lunch to school or just try to make wise choices?
Allison, I can't believe you are so close to goal. Must be an awesome feeling!
Dee, Spanish? Are you doing this through an adult education class? With two beef packing plants in our town, we are now the minority. I should learn to speak Spanish, but not going to at this point.
Chrystal, how did your day go!
Where the heck are Shelley & Shelley? They check in EVERY day??
09-28-2006, 05:58 AM
Sorry I've been MIA. I have had to work late because the other lady that is the director of the after school program has been sick. I"ll be working late again both today and tomorrow. I am going in for a Dexascan on Monday (even though it's Yom Kippur-I'll go after services.) My best friend's husband, who works at my GI's office said I need to get one, since I have had UC for so many years and because of my age. It should be interesting to see if that has anything to do with my foot and running problems.
Janice-Yay! On the WI!! I'm so proud of you.
Suzy-Would you PLEASE come mow my lawn? It's so high because of all the standing water. BTW, I had an Aunt Hazel that I adored. She passed away a few years ago.
Gayle-Thanks for posting everyday and keeping us going.
Sorry I had to make this short, but I really need to get my booty in gear and off to work!
09-28-2006, 06:23 AM
Hello all. Thanks for the extra welcomes.
alinnell- I'm glad by the sound of it you think I've got it all together. That means my plan is working... ;). Hope you're doing well.
gdeann- well my youngest is 20 months, so I'm hoping those crying days are almost gone. That's why the mornings are the only times I'm online, usually, becuase they're all asleep.
Hope everyone has a fantastic day. After work, I'll go jog around the park, then go to walmart. After picking up the kids and cooking/eating dinner, my oldest has a redo soccer game from last Saturday. So I'll try to check back in in the morning.
Have a blessed day!
09-28-2006, 06:38 AM
I take my lnch to school. I take a salad daily. but yesterday there ws what is called oktoberfest and all of the foriegn launguage and social sciences lclasses went so I was there half the day. Ther ewere chocolate lattes, tacos taquitos emadadas quessiadillas nachos , brownies cookies , the grermans had brats it looked soooo amazing . I didnt have a thing. I swear i am the ,most willed teenager int he world. How much did a want to grab a peice of little ceasars pizza from the latin section!!!!
09-28-2006, 11:10 AM
Vogue--congrats on passing up all the goodies! That must have been hard!
I didn't do too well yesterday. I had these snack packs in my desk and they've been there for weeks (I'd eat like one per week) and yesterday, I ate 4 of them!!! Gosh, what was I thinking? Then, it was back to school night for my DS's school (his first year in middle school). Since I wasn't going to get home until 7PM (our usual dinner time) I opted to hit Del Taco for dinner. DD said she wanted fries, so I got a large (to go with our burritoes and my quesadilla). Well, DD ate 3 fries and left the table. I ate the rest of them! Again, what was I thinking? Good news, the scale is staying at 139 (3rd day in a row!).
09-28-2006, 08:26 PM
Sorry I have been MIA. So busy this semester. Keep thinking I will get everything done and just not into the schedule yet! I am reading and keeping up with everyone that way! Hope everyone is having a great week!
09-29-2006, 06:05 AM
I hope everyone had a great Thursday. I didn't eat great but didn't eat badly either. I need to do some major grocery shopping to get my pantry and fridge filled with only good things. But that's hard because I like to give my four kids a treat from time to time and my dh can't live without his bowl of ice cream ALMOST every night.
I think this weather change is getting me. Sore throat, pounding headache, yadda.
Well, I'm getting off of here for now. Hope you all have a great day. I have a homeshow every day this weekend starting with tonight, so I may not be back on until Monday, we'll see though.
09-29-2006, 09:15 AM
Crystal I would like to welcome you to our little group. I hope that you enjoy it here as much as I do. You sure do get up early. Shelley posts really early too.
You girls are never going to believe this! Yesterday I made cookies by mistake! Now I know you are saying sure and how could that happen. I really did. We are going to Jay's tonight for a bbq and he asked me to bring brownies. On the bag of chipits there were two recipes one for cookies one for the brownie. Well I just followed the first one and half way realized that it was cookies. Now I have these cookies screaming at me. I ate my fair share yesterday, they are a red light food for me so I never make them. I cooked half and froze the rest of the dough. Not that frozen dough doesn't taste good.....lol. I think that this morning I will bring Dez a couple but I don't want to sabatoge her hard efforts either. If there is any left tonight I will bring them over to Jay's with the brownie.
I am off to get ready for aquafit.
Hope you all have a good day.
09-29-2006, 09:28 AM
GOOD MORNING GIRLS!
Where oh where are our little MIA's???????????
Dee, drop the cookies now! LOL! You have such self control, I'm sure the cookie incident won't hurt your weigh-in. Have fun tonight! What type of plan is Dez following? Is she an exercise junkie like her mommy?
Crystal, what kind of home shows do you have? I hope you feel better soon! I agree, it is very hard to stay on plan with children and hubby around! Our oldest works at a FF place so she is ALWAYS offering to bring something home!
Gotta go peddle booze! LOL!
09-29-2006, 10:41 AM
Just a quick note to let you all know what's going on here...
Tim's Aunt Hazel went to work at the hospital this morning (she is a 92 year old retired RN and volunteers one day a week) anyway, she got very dizzy and nearly passed out. One of the girls in the office talked her into going down to the ER to get her blood pressure checked...it was dangerously low. They are admitting her to the ICU. I don't have anymore details than that right now...just know that it can't be good if they are putting her in ICU. Tim and his dad are on their way to the hospital now. She never had any children, so we are the only family that she has...she's very special to us. Please keep her in your prayers.
Travis IM'd me this morning (for the newbies...Travis is my youngest son and is an MP in the Marine Corps currently deployed in Iraq), so I was able to let him know what was going on with Aunt Hazel. He said that the Walid base is much nicer now from when he was there last year and he has access to computers and telephones, so that's a huge relief!
We talked to Tim's brother and sister-in-law last night and they aren't going to be able to make the trip up next week as planned, so that's a disappointment. Tom is a PI and has his own agency and they just can't leave right now. Our business is really busy right now too, so we probably would have had to work the whole time they were here anyway. They are going to try and come up in January or February instead, so maybe that will work out better for everyone.
I'll try to catch up with everyone soon as I get a few extra minutes. Until then take care and stay out of the cookies!
09-29-2006, 11:07 AM
Sorry I have been MIA. So busy this semester. Keep thinking I will get everything done and just not into the schedule yet! I am reading and keeping up with everyone that way! Hope everyone is having a great week!
Can I just say I FEEL YOU!!!!!
I have two annotated bibliographies to do this semester (which, btw, is passing WAY to quickly): one with 15 entries and one with 10 entries. Two papers (5-7 pg w/no research and 12-15 pg w/research). Two poetry explications (650-700 words each, so fairly short). Three exams, including a take-home mid-term that's gonna be an *** kicker.
Add that to working 45+ hours/week and "taking care" of Stewart (which doesn't really count because we all know I suck at that :) ) I am PILED UNDER!!!
I'll be so glad when this semester is OVER!
09-29-2006, 11:14 AM
Suzy, I'll be thinking of your aunt. I'll also be thinking of Travis--great news that he'll have computer access, so much easier for him to keep in touch!!
:queen: needs to DROP the :cookie:
Gayle, I need some booze. I seriously started to stop by the package store this morning on my way to work from school. Those Boone's Mango Grove really were calling to me!!!
Shelley, I'm not sure what a dexascan is, but if it'll help keep our runner healthy, then you definately should do it!
09-29-2006, 11:37 AM
I wondered where everyone was yesterday!!!
Well, the little relapse on Wednesday caught up to me today and my scale is showing +1.5 pounds. I need to take care of that so my goal doesn't get messed up!!! I won't have much chance for dinner tonight as I've been invited to a CAbi party (kind of like a Tupperware party only clothes). I'm glad to go, nothing I own fits any longer and frankly the stores here in town have nothing that I like. I can't wait until Nordstrom opens, but that's still 3 years down the road. I really miss that Macy's bought out Robinson/May's--I really liked Robinsons and I can't find anything I like at Macy's.
Tomorrow, I have to drive to San Diego for an all-day meeting. I don't really want to go, but I have to lead part of the meeting, so I'm obligated.
I have a meeting today at work that I'm not looking too forward to. Sales call and I still don't feel too confident to be making these kinds of tough decisions (employee benefits and all). But our partner is out of the office, and later this year, he'll be gone and it will come down to the fact that I will have to be the decision maker, so I guess I'd better just deal with it!
Have a great Friday everyone. I probably won't be around again unil Sunday or Monday.
09-29-2006, 12:24 PM
Hey everyone just popping in , my sistr is getting married tomorow so I am hthe maid of honor so I dont have to time for the computer this weekend, but i know I will be glad tomorw to cheat for once on my diet.

09-29-2006, 01:55 PM
Suzy I was just coming to post to you and ask you where our motivation Suzy was.
I am sorry to hear that Aunt Hazel is not doing well. I will remember her in my prayers. Let us know how she is doing.
I was also wondering how Travis was doing. I am glad that he has more access to comunication. I am sure that it realives you of some stress just knowing that you can be in touch more often.
Vouge have a wonderful time at your sisters wedding. Don't worry about what you will eat that day but just remember to get right back to it sunday.
Boy it sounds like everyone is so busy with school or work. I am glad that I dont work at least not for pay. lol
Gayle, Dez is trying to lose some weight just by eatting healthy and going to the Y 5 times a week. I only wish she was an exercise fanatic. She is not motivated like her mommy. On the other hand at least Jay goes to the Y 4 times a week. He isn't too much into cardio but instead into the weights. He is a muscular boy. He could lose a few pounds too.
I weighed in this week at ww's and I am down a pound. At least I was before I got into the cookies and the brownie batter.
Some of you oldies here know that I have issues with anesetic, well I needed a filling replaced this week because it had a crack in it. The dentist wouldn't give me an anastetic with apenephrin becasue it might quicken my heart. That is the most common anestetic. He gave me this other one and then started working in my mouth. Ouch it didn't work. He realized it after a bit and wondered why it didn't work. I really didn't care, I just wanted no pain. Yikes. So he shot in some more and I was frozen for about 4 hours after he was done the work.
I sure hope my surgery goes better next tuesday.
I had an over flow of tomatoes so I am making a huge pot of spegetti sauce. It smells good, it is the combo of the brownie ladden with snickers and the spegetti sauce. Well that pot needs stirring so I am going to get going.
