  • Understand the not being able t sleep with DH not there - spent years with him on night shift. If it was particularly bad, I would get a t-shirt that smelled like him and cuddle with it. It helped relax me enough to go to sleep.

      awe That's sweet I might try that tonight. I slept fine once I decided to go to bed at 2 am.

      • I have no problem being alone. I lived alone the last year and a half of college and then 2 years before I was married. After I got married my ex traveled a lot for work so once again I was often alone, until I had kids. Since moving back to OR I've lived alone and like it. When my kids come for a visit, as much as I love having them here, I miss my quiet house after a few days.

        Congratulations on being diarrhea free for thirteen days. I hope talking about it doesn't jinx things. I say that because every time I mention to my best friend or cousin that I haven't had a period that month,it comes calling in the next day or two.

        • I slept in Hulky's shirts and most comfy PJ pants while he was away last month. I also used a big stuffed shark toy as a place filler for him. I don't like to snuggle while sleeping, but I liked having something big-ish next to me.

          • I swipe a shirt of his from the laundry bin and put it on Sheba ( a stuffed Jaguar he gave me for our first Valentine's Day.) I would curl around his pillow, but he takes it with him.
            Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

              • Me too Tomi. I could not live in Oregon. Even in Florida I get depressed in Fall/Winter sometimes severely. I really have to work at it. I have started looking forward to the Winter Solstice because it means that the days will begin to get longer again.

                I believe fall has arrived in Oregon. Yuck........... my least favorite season. Lots of clean up and then everything goes dormant for the long winter ahead. To me - it feels like the world of plants and greenness and blooming things goes to sleep from October to April - and we have to stay awake and go on with our lives. Fall and winter make me sad.

                        • What a lazy day!! I have done absolutely nothing today. Its 12:45 I guess I should get something accomplished today.

                          I miss my hubby

                          I've been eating pretty good I stashed the m&m's in the big freezer in the garage after I wrapped them in packing tape! Safe and sound! Breakfast was 2 fried eggs with fried potatoes.

                          Been looking online for a couple of bedside tables. Not having any luck finding what I want for what I want to pay.

                          My legs ache like crazy today! weird.

                          Rambling thoughts............. I might just go sit on the couch and watch dumb movies all day

                          • Not sure what the heck is happening to my body........... This morning I was 188 - up 3 pounds in one week. A few hours later I stepped on the scale again and it said 192. How do gain 4 pounds in 3 hours? I ate 2 eggs and hashed browns for breakfast - that it. I haven't seen these numbers in a YEAR! Why am I blowing up? The only thing I've been doing differently is that I've been eating white or sweet potatoes every day for a couple weeks. Could that be causing the weight gain? THAT much? Seriously............ I still don't eat enough calories for this to be real FAT gain! I have been working on the bowflex more............ muscle gain?

                            I'm horrified and frustrated!

                            • You can not be sure your scales are behaving correctly. You lifted a ton of pellets. This may be your muscles retaining water to help them heal. Do you feel heavier? Are your clothes fitting differently?

                              Maybe this is a lesson to show you how inaccurate/unimportant the number on that box is.

                              • Don't weigh yourself twice in one day. Pick a time to weigh yourself - usually morning is best - and only weigh then. Scales lie, and they aren't always accurate. The best you can hope for is a trend.
