It's June 2010 already! Allergy Chat Thread - Page 29

post #561 of 873
Ugh. Why oh why did I have to talk about DD sleeping so well?!

:yawning

And.... I guess tomatoes are still out for us. Which really sucks, considering I have 5 different varieties growing in my garden right now.

Speaking of gardens... my garlic scapes are starting to come up. I wasn't sure if they would get that far before I had to harvest, because they seem a little cramped in the container I chose. If you've never eaten the scape, you are missing out. SO delicious. And that also means that it's almost time to harvest the garlic- lots and lots of fresh garlic. I love it when my gardening actually works (since I'm still quite the newbie!)

The lettuce I very recently sowed in a container on my back porch is sprouting. How pathetic is this? June's nearly over and I just put in lettuce in a container. *sigh* Like I said, no garden again this year.
Feels like a not great day.

You planted lettuce! And it's sprouting!

It's friday. It will be a great day. Choose something fun to do and just do it

So when did you plant the garlic? I need to try that next year.

And congrats on the scapes. How do you like to eat them?

you know, if i'm honest about it, it's been ever since i lost that app on my iPod. i had literally everything i have to do for the next 5 YEARS in it and i'm really cautious to even attempt to put it back on there again but i also know that i need *something* to keep me on track, bc that's just how i work. i'm still so incredibly frustrated by it that i could cry. and i haven't bothered to buy that other app bc i just can't see spending another month putting everything back in... meanwhile, it's been a month of totally wasted time anyway.

Yeah... As much as I love dreaming about the future and like to have a rough plan for the day, I'm SO not a planner. Just choose something fun to do today, and go DO it! Walk to the store? Clear a bush from the yard? Get ds2 entertained by something in the greenhouse and start getting it prepped for a fall garden?

I'm so jealous of your garden especially since we are stuck in an apartment right now while our beautiful home with a garden-less backyard is waiting patiently for us till October Maybe I can attempt to plant some stuff in October when we get home???

Sorry you so tired, DD didn't sleep well last night either and was up at 7 am

We're waiting for ds1 to get home from his friend's house but ds3's going down for a nap now so then we'll have to wait for him to wake up. I think I'll get ds1 to stay upstairs and wait for ds3 to wake up while I take ds2 down to the yard. He can play and I can try to clear some of the weeds then when ds3 wakes, we can take our walk to the store.
I just start thinking about all the things I *need* to do and am not doing.

hmmm... I think it was late October or early November?

We chop up the scapes and throw them in a stirfry with ground lamb and greens. mmmmmmmmmmmm You can put them in salads and stuff too, but I've never tried that.

Having kids who are a bit older (4 and 6) is really, REALLY helpful some days. I lay down for a nap a while earlier, DH came home for lunch like usual and I think heated up some tater tots for them, and then turned on a Charlie Brown thing from Netflix, and I got to sleep for maybe 2 hours. I am borderline human/competent.

to everyone having rough days with younger kids

I think I have a meal plan for the next few days, I feel really behind since I was planning to work all day today, and, well, I can't. I'll get some stuff done... considering whether I should just plan to leave on Monday instead of Sunday. We'll still make it in plenty of time.

DD hasn't mentioned her stomach all day long! that this is the solution, and the continually lowering B6 level plus moderate protein is all we need to do.

That's great! My mother planted garlic last fall. I'm hoping she's going to share them with me when she harvests. What's a scape though... are those just the tops? Maybe I'll sneak into her garden and steal some...

Canada Day boob doctor visit.
We don't use Ener-G egg replacer because of some ingredient... does it have potato in it?

Had biopsy this morning. Drove up to the lake with the dog and a full car. Now I'm sitting here waiting for DH and the kids to show up since I'm not allowed to lift anything, so I can't unpack the car (well, except the computer... that was light enough! ) And it's easy to sit here and type with an ice pack on my boob. They smeared my boob with iodine, and afterwards she was wiping it off, and I considered asking her to leave it on so I could do the iodine absorption test... but I couldn't remember how long it was supposed to take to absorb.

I got Miss Roben's soft pretzel mix, and haven't tried it yet because it's got cane sugar in it... now DS seems to be tolerating some so we'll try that one of these days.

CS - I hope you figure out the sleep again! DD2 has been coming into bed with me every night since the Fifths rash started. I'm not used to it anymore.
post #573 of 873
And I should probably stop ignoring the fact that about half the time, DS's poop floats. Not all the time, but half. That's not good, is it. What the heck, digestive enyzmes all around?

It's the center stalk that shoots up and eventually flowers. They kind of fall over and then get all curly.

I'm pretty positive the bad sleep last night is because I bought some cherry tomatoes and let DD have a few of them. They just looked so tasty... I couldn't help myself. And DD loves them too, so I couldn't just eat them in front of her.

So how long do you have to wait for results? At least your summer "vacation" has started, so that should help to keep your mind off the waiting, right?
post #575 of 873
I think it's potato and corn, Kathy, though I haven't looked in a while.

Just made pizza pasta for lunch. I really need to make a full package of pasta instead of half but half is all we had since I forgot to buy pasta at TJ's.

Tired now.

Speaking of carbs, came across a really cool study today...

HIIT for 2 weeks improved insulin sensitivity by 23%

Since we can't have eggs I need a mayonaise substitute. The kids love mayo. What am I going to do?

I think menomena has a recipe in the allergen-free recipe thread which I've been meaning to try. You might want to check there.

We planted late this yr--like January and I think we're still gonna get (small) bulbs...but for us, the right time is generally Sept-Nov. Ooh, if you love garlic ,check out gourmet garlic gardens! I order my seed garlic there and them end up eating it, lol...must buy TWO pounds--one for eating, one for planting. I keep telling DH that if we started growing garlic, we wouldn't need to buy it ever again, but it's not convincing him anymore, lol.

Whoa. Sent it to DH, I think I need to start as well. Probably not actual sprints, but something that makes me (sedentary, quite overweight 35-year old woman) comparably worn out to those 21-year old somewhat overweight young men.

So, I've officially pushed back our leave date til Monday. Cause I am too sick and worn out today. On the upswing, but since it's only me driving, I want everything well planned, not throwing stuff together at 11pm the night before we leave.

Kids have been shockingly happy today. I wonder if the way the kids run around is part of them dealing better with carbs? Mine have been shockingly happy today on our weird temporary ammonia-fix diet.
