Now for te OTHER people I am going to tag: (totally optional of course)

If you liked my post, feel free to subscribe to my rss feeds

  • Thanks for the tag. I will enjoy doing this one. I am a bit worried about your Crohn’s. Is it stress or is the medication not doing its job? I ask if it’s stress because I am quite stressed at the moment and my IBS is playing up something shocking. Take it as easy as you can. Hope you feel better soon.

  • Meleah

    Selma:

    STRESS is one of the MAJOR factors in an attack.

    Whats weird is that usually when I get an attack, I am in PAIN for about an hour or so, and then I totally evacuate my body. But this one was different. I was in MAJOR PAIN for a WHOLE DAY yesterday and I didn’t start to evacuate until today. I HATE when I feel like this. and there isnt anything I can do. Ive been taking all my medications at all the right times, and I am not really stressed out. Work is so slow I am not overwhelmed in the office and life at home with The Parents is wonderful. I have NO STRESS about bills, or money, or anything. I have NO IDEA what set this attack in motion. That bothers me.

    Thanks for accepting the tag….I cant wait to see your answers to the questions.

  • #17… that was me from like 17-35!!!!! you are a trip!!!!

  • I will gladly accept the Tag! I hope you feel better…stay out of the office! That place is cursed!

  • Meleah

    Paisley:

    Dood. I carried that milk crate full of papers EVERYWHERE. I have no idea why I always thought there was going to be a fire and why I had to PACK all my things in the event of a fire every night. I think my MAC/APPLE that I have now is like my NEW crate stuff.

    Chef Mom:

    Sweet. and yeah, I am HOME today…but its not all fun and games when my stomach is on the fritz. Ugh.

  • I love your ‘crate stuff’. That is adorable! I enjoyed reading this.

  • Done. πŸ™‚ Feel better.

  • Very well done. Now put down the Mac and get some rest!

  • Meleah

    Worn Out Woman:

    Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the read. There is s whole story about that crate stuff. I may decide to write a whole post just about that

    Leslie:

    Wheee! I am coming over to read it.

    (I feel better than yesterday…but just hollow inside. All drained and empty and very TIRED)

    Michael C:

    I missed most of yesterday laying in bed in so much pain…and I slept A LOT. But, now that my trips to the bathroom have slowed down I think I will go lay back down for awhile.

  • First of all, I’m so sorry to hear about the Crohn’s Attack.
    You dye your hair every 6 weeks? No wonder they look really nice in all the pictures, the highlights are so natural and perfect. Love it πŸ™‚

  • I’ll do it…I had a whole post planned about my visit to THE CHEATING DENTIST (memba’ him?) yesterday, with magical-peyote-nitrus-gas an’ everything!! But I still feel like I was playing catch with my mouth…and instead of a ball it was a brick. Ugh…

    I hope you feel better πŸ™

  • cmk

    DEFINITELY will do this one! And I might even have several answers that DON’T have the word ‘hockey’ in them. πŸ˜‰

  • Meleah

    RMH:

    Yep. This sucks. And The only reason my hair looks this good is because one of my CLOSEST friends is a professional hair dresser…and she RULES.
