I'm still here--just having a hard time keeping up with all the posts. Things are sorta crazy here with our grandson's wedding tomorrow night and enjoying dinner Sunday night with family visiting from Florida.
Hope (canary52, newbies.) Welcome back! Thanks for your kind words about my new pic. Kudos on the healthful drinks, but yucko on the flax oil. I gave it a try two or three times and found it so nasty. I can eat flaxmeal easily as a cold or hot cereal using whey protein powder and water for the "milk." I hope you find great relief with the acupuncturist. I've never had it but believe it would work. Any plans for your July 25 wedding anniversary? We're celebrating 42 years the day before yours. We'll just go out to dinner alone--that's what we enjoy doing. But I'll take a huge party in 8 more years.
Quinn, that had to be really scary facing that surgery, especially knowing the tumor was so close to your spine. I'm so glad you count the numb leg as a blessing compared with the "could have beens."
I know how lucky DH and the driver he pulled out in front of were. Sorry about your family and neighborhood's recent bouts with traffic accidents. You and I were in Mackinaw the same weekend last year and we just went to the Smokey Mts. the first week of June, but just for two nights and three days. I hope you get to do your hiking this fall.
Jenn, sorry to read about your mom's run-in with the cabbie. Everyone OK?
Mel-Mc, LOL on your "shoulder princess." I never hit or spanked my kids when they were young, but if I had to deal with Veruca I'd be tempted to whop her upside the head.
Robin, was anyone hurt in the accident in your neighborhood?
Claire, so sorry about the loss of your hamster. Pets are family.
I have to get moving. So much to do to prepare for the weekend celebrations. I've been on track foodwise all week. May allow myself a couple controlled cheats at the wedding and dinner with Florida relatives.
Kudos to all who are doing well and big cyberhugs of support to those who are struggling.
