    Thanks for the congrats guys and gals! Only...the job was short-lived. Didn't sign a paper or work an hour there. Too much drama going on BEFORE I even got started. So that meant RUUUUUUUUNNNNNN and don't look back!

    Anyhoo....I went for another job today at a country club restaurant within walking distance from the house (20-30 minutes tops). Just think of the exercise I'll get with THAT job! At least now I won't have transportation problems! Nothing like the good feet the Good Lord blessed me with!

    I'm a survivor due to my lifestyle of living like the gypsies live. I fit in wherever I happen to be, and make the best of every situation no matter what! I bend with the wind, and swim with every current, and rise above every obstacle life throws at me. Not in my strength, but because of God's Strength and Love living inside me holding me together. HE is the glue that keeps me from falling apart! Amen? Amen!!!

    Praying for each one of you tonight...especially you Deb! Sweet dreams!

    Renee, sorry to hear about the job, but glad something else came up.

    Arciedee, nice to hear from you.

    I'm a little headachy again today. They seem to be worse lately. I'm wondering if my turning vegetarian and eating more grains that I'm allergic to or soy has anything to do with it? Or maybe it's MSG because I had Chinese food again last night because I was too lazy to cook, or the wheat in the Chinese noodles? I've eaten wheat my entire life and that shouldn't be it. I didn't have headaches until I moved to Florida. They come and go, I'm just in a bad spell now.

    I'm going to the gym today and then going to be a slug.

    Just happened to browse through and see this....and I just heard someone say the other day that, like allergies of any kind, wheat allergies can come on suddenly. Someone at work said their child had suddenly become allergic to it....and a friend of my daughter's suddenly discovered a new gluten allergy last year. The girl/woman is in her late 20's. The symptoms were GI though. I am convinced I am allergic to one of the honeys...not sure which one...and it gives me very bad headaches.

    Cheerful, I am sorry about the 'hit and miss' job at the school, but it is probably for the best. Perhaps the country club will work out and that would be wonderful for you!

    Tweety - yuck on the headaches, I have a very good friend who is having severe problems with a headache that won't go away and gets unbearable at night. I keep trying to get her to go to the Dr., but I am not having much luck. How long have you lived in FL? Perhaps there is an altitude difference from where you were before?

    Arciedee - I would love to learn ballroom dancing, enjoy it! 5 lbs. is wonderful and your charisma is shining.

    Everybody, hope today and the weekend is going well for all of you. My munchkins are extremely sick now and there was much debate as to whether or not to put my little boy in the hospital last night. They decided to let him come home with a nebulizer and breathing treatments along with an antibiotic for an ear infection and steroids to help his lungs. My little girl also has an ear infection, but she just got the antibiotics with instructions to use the breathing treatments if they become necessary. They both have to go back for a check-up on Wednesday, but I have instructions to keep a close eye on them and go in right away if anything changes. Goodness I will be happy when it is summer and this stuff is out of the air!

    Take care and don't worry if I'm not online for a while, gotta get my little ones well - they are top priority!

    Thanks for the support. I had another headache today out of the blue, it wasn't long after I ate a South Beach Bar. Tonight I had whole wheat spaghetti with meatless balls, so we'll see.

    I've lived in Florida for 14 years now, I once had a theory it was the fronts moving through weather wise, we get "cold fronts" every few days and I thought it was atmospheric pressure. I go through spells, so hopefully it won't last, usually if I get enough sleep I don't get them.

    Anyway, glad to see you guys hanging in there. Stay healthy!
