Nice and cool here, even though it's 75° now, the humidity is only 47% and I've opened up some windows. Even with the AC and fans on, the house gets a little 'close', as Mom used to say. Fresh air is needed to keep my head clear!
Welcome to the newcomers! Know that you've found a good place to get help, information, opinions and a laugh or two.
I'm working on a back-to-school event for my downtown association. 8 years ago, DH and I talked about creating another program to bring people into our downtown, and the event was born! Parents and kiddies come downtown, buy a ticket for $2, get a bag and a list, and walk from business to business collecting school supplies. This is the 8th one we're doing, and I've added a back-to-school fair. Already we've heard from scout troops, the local hospital and a local pharmacy. It's Aug 20, and it should be good!
Does anyone else get totally crazy when you have a perfect manicure and snap off a nail at the quick? AAAARGH!

Hi fibroornot: I've had muscle twitching, but not what you're describing. I work hard to keep it together, some days better than others. I take a weekly yoga class, that helps with balance. Every morning I do the yoga stretching I've learned, and I take 5 minutes after lunch to stand on one foot, then the other. I helps, really!
missist: I've taken amitryptiline too, and slathered on 25 lbs the first year. I carried it around til early 2012, and I lost all of it! No special weight-loss program except counting calories taken in and burned, making sure I move more every day. I found some over this past winter, and another 5 since, and I'm working again to get rid of it. LouView Thread
Tuesday already, and the end of July looming"026 Where has the year gone?
Thank god the humidity has finally moved on, there was only so much I could take. More is coming tonight, but I'll enjoy the day. I take the pill every morning, but I like getting my Vitamin D naturally.
I think the stress is putting me in a FM Fog. I can't remember what I'm doing or why, can't find the words I need to tell a story. Could it be early-onset Alzheimers? Mom has it, her parents and two brothers, too. Scary as heck, but it's a consideration.
Got a call from my brother's fiancée - he's in the hospital with kidney stones. Just the info I need for MORE stress!
Have I told you that I'm changing my business? For 19 years I've been running a graphic designe business, and quite successfully. The past 3 years have been dreadful, and I've had no work since February of this year. I've applied for 30 jobs (freelance, temp, part-time, full-time), and haven't had a nibble. A friend suggested that I use my knitting skills to earn a living, something I'd been mulling over. So, I'm jumping in with both feet! I'm going to open an Etsy store once I get a dozen items to stock with. I'm going to continue to do my charity knitting, too, so it will keep me busy.
Must finish some paperwork I've been putting off. I wish you all the best day you can possibly have, LouView Thread
Happy Monday! Cloudy and dreary here, but it's 76° with 74% humidity. Hard rain woke me, along with the AM radio crackle of lightning, and more is coming later. We had a couple partly-nice days for the weekend.
My brother got engaged a few weeks ago; I'm SO happy! His fiancée is a wonderful woman, she has a son who's 22, and she's never been married. She's afraid of becoming a Bridezilla, and asked me if it would be tacky for them to plan a big wedding, and if she should wear white. I told her she could wear anything she wants, and to plan they wedding they (she) want. I know Dad liked her, and I told them both he'd be very happy.
Then my cousin got engaged! They live in Japan, and she's visiting with her fiancé. He's nice, and has a great sense of humor. My great-niece (she's 3) wouldn't go near him or speak to him, and he made a game out of try ing to get her to say anything to him. It's like he's one of the family already.
Both couples will get married next year, September and October.
The final measure for the kitchen is this Friday, and then everything gets ordered. It's so exciting! And that's all I have to say about it.
DH is bicycling the Pan-Mass Challenge this weekend. The aim is to raise funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He's physically ready for the ride, but the fundraising part is a chore. I've collected a list of all the businesses (mostly restaurants) that will donate a portion of proceeds for a given day/time to a charity. we;ll deal with it after the ride. He has until Oct 1 to raise the amount he committed to; after that, they hit his credit card for the balance.

Sunny, warm and not humid here, but it'll be back Sunday with t-storms. You've gotta love summer, and I'm glad we have 4 seasons in New England.
I goofed, and the final measure for the kitchen is NEXT Friday. That's ok, it's progress and I'm giddy. I just have to find the floor I like; they quoted Pergo, but I don't like what they have. Hmmm"026.
Tomorrow we're going to an engagement party BBQ for one of my cousins; she lives in Japan, too. She and her 'boyfriend' have been together for years, we've gotten together with her, but never met him. My aunt is very happy for her youngest daughter!
Mimi, it sounds like an interesting study. You could be on the front lines of a 'cure' for all of us!
Mary, it sounds like you have a plan. when is your carpal-tunnel surgery? I'd like to use more natural and herbal meds, but there's so much available it's overwhelming for me. I love my yoga, and will do stretching poses throughout the day so I feel better. I have a sit-down job, so it's not easy; at least I'm home!
I wish you all the best day - and the best weekend - you can possibly have! LouView Thread
Be very careful when someone tells you they can cure or alleviate the symptoms with something as powerful as Human Growth Hormone. I don't think you should try anything called a hormone without your doc's knowledge and approval.
