    Morning, Beepers

    Weather: Gross so far

    Sleep: What sleep? 3am-7am (woke up to my Papa's alarm that made my headache worse & head throb...I've not slept well in 2 days)

    Mood: GOOD!!! I'm an utter trainwreck but am still smiling..channeling my Britney Spears right now! She always stays positive even when stuff sucks. We'll see how long it lasts...

    Plans: Trying to decide whether I want to go home today or Mom is going to clean the carpet at home (full of dander & stuff that triggers my asthma) and wants me to wait til Sunday, but I'm not sleeping here, I'm bored as hello, and my asthma will act up regardless...I'm having allergy symptoms here too (super puffy eye this morning..that's effing great) and I'm ready to be home. Anyone have an opinion on that decision?

    *hugs* to all who need/want them.

    Mandi I am with I have annoying kitty also for description look at my avatar picture. But I would not give him up for the world.

    Weather: Texas desert hot and sunny.

    Sleep: Just the right amount but at the wrong time of night. I have been sleeping at night as of late and dread my overnight shifts this weekend. But last nights sleep was planned to help get my wife to the doc today.

    Mood: N/A exhausted to much going on at work and at home no rest for the weary.

    Plans: take my wife to see her doc over worsening skin issues pet a kitty and work.

    I wish you all a wonderful day and cookie take it easy with that asthma.

    Good Morning
    Yay it is Friday/two kids gone for the weekend

    Weather: Overcast/but my mood is better then that

    Sleep: Great but I would like to know why you either do not sleep that last fifteen minutes left before the alarm after you go to the bathroom or you fall asleep so hard that the alarm freaks you out when it goes off?

    Mood: Great for a change

    Plans: work walk work on my sons room and get arranged the way I want it or help one of my girls clean their room

    Happy Friday!

    Weather -- great
    Sleep -- good, about 8 hrs
    Mood -- grrrreat!
    Plans -- Going to a wine tasting tonight, hope it is fun!

    I have been gluten free for almost 5 days and feel like a different person. I have a lot of focused energy. It has not been too difficult to follow the diet, even though I am a bit hungry right now (ate lunch an hour ago).

    I see the doc next Friday. Funny thing is that I had been feeling itchy for weeks and had a bit of a rash on my face for over a month. But on the third day gf, the rash really came on strong. FYI, gluten intolerance sometimes causes a rash. Anyway it's funny that the rash followed me going off gluten, but I read up on it and it is possible for it happen like that.

    Thankfully, rash is not too bad. Last time I had it, it was mainly in my armpits and good god, it was sooo itchy.

    Take care y'all
    BipolarDisorder2 replied to BeeRJ's response:
    BeeRJ: LOVE the picture, thanks buddy!

    Bptwin: Hope your rash improves- it sounds miserable.

    My asthma is acting pu, sooo book and some coffee with my albuterol inhaler for me.

    Hey everyone

    Weather: muggy. One day it is 100 then the next it is 60???

    Sleep: really good. Woke up this morning to a thunder storm

    Mood: pretty cheerful

    Plans: went to Fashion Bug to buy bras. They were buy two get two free. So dd and I pick them all out and go to pay. I got charged full price. When I questioned it I was told that only with ones without red tags were on sales. We then got into a fight because every bra in the store had a red tag which I pointed out and drug the girl around to prove it to her. Needless to say, I got no where so they had to take them back. Pointless sale. Big waste of time. It didnt even say anywhere about the red tags. They are on my kaka list now.
    BipolarDisorder2 replied to mommaange1's response:
    THAT sucks.....I would be furious, especially if I got cheated out of bras.

    Hello my wonderful friends!

    Weather: Wonderful. Blue skies, white clouds and gentle breezes.

    Sleep: Good

    Mood: Good. My doc gave me a stronger pain med until I have the spinal epidural, and it felt great to have less pain. I even went over to my husband, kissed him on the head and told him I loved him. He gave me a blank look and said "What do you want?". When you have been married as long as we have those spontaneous shows of affection can diminish. Something has to change.

    Plans: Nada. It is me and the heating pad on the couch. Oh, the little red dog will be wrapped up as close to the heating pad as well.

    I hope everyone's health and moods are good for the weekend. I am off work for 2 more weeks, yipee!!!

    Hugs to all,

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
    margaroo replied to mommaange1's response:

    I hate bra shopping and to have to go through all that and then not being able to buy them would have sent me over the edge.
