Worried...we went up to visit my parents this aft, and my mom showed my a rash she has had on her abdomen and back since last week. It is just a few spots, but she said since she noticed it, there have been new ones each day. And the one on her back hurts. They are small, red and almost look like little bug bites. I am very concerned that this may be shingles.

So, I bugged her until she agreed to go to the doctor today. She is checked in at the walk in clinic and there is a 2 1/2 hour wait. So I am really hoping it is nothing. We will find out I guess.

DH had shingles a couple of years ago .... very painful. After watching him I decided that I really didn't want to go thru that. As soon as I could I got the shingles shot ... not 100% effective but I'll take what I can get. You might want to talk to your parents about getting the shot if she is old enough. One bit of advise: I was told that since the injection is a live virus I shouldn't be around infants until two weeks after I received the shot .... RC nurses correct me if I'm wrong.

Oh boy, I know it can be very painful. DH's uncle has had it since last July and the Dr has told him the pain is going to stay with him for life!! I think he waited way too long to seek treatment. I will push for them to get the shot if all is ok....thanks for your input Linda.

Ugh!!

DH actually came down with shingles in college!! It's pretty uncommon for someone that young to get it, but the doctors said it was likely stress induced. He was given anti virals and recovered (he had the rash all over his back)...he was told that the chance of recurrence is VERY low....so hopefully that's the case. He has had no residual effects.

Hope you're mom is okay!

She is almost always under stress, but most of it is self induced. She has always been a worrier, and with her health not being the greatest, she is very focused on that all the time. Glad your DH recovered from it. It just sounds so nasty.

Should be a nice sunny day here, just a bit chilly. Of course "chilly" is subjective right?!

Good morning...well afternoon now.

Sometimes, it's nice to treat yourself. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on something I have wanted to buy myself. I have been seeing the commercials on TV, and I would love to get one. I am going to buy myself a no!no! hair removal thingie. It never fails when I shave, I end up cutting myself. I bought an electric razor and I'm just not happy with it. I think I"m going to try a no!no! and see if it's any better.

That's great news!! Was he able to give her something to help with the pain?

Well I'm off to work on my big class project. It's due by midnight tonight and I haven't written one word yet.

I like that I can make my own flour and grains in it, as well as smoothies so I can get some nutritious stuff into DS. He has the absolute worst diet and refuses to eat anything good for him. He would seriously starve himself rather than eat healthy food.

Check HSN for the no!no! They always have specials on it, but I have read terrible reviews of it. I was intrigued by it since I am an avid home shopper. But after reading reviews I decided not to buy it. HSN has a $20 coupon right not also. If you PM me you email I will forward it to you

Of course this one isn't the model I want, it was the tsv in December but I couldn't afford it before the holidays. QVC still has a "deal" on the one I want but it is waitlisted in every color and the only bonus is two smoothie bottles so I think I will just buy it direct from the company and not pay shipping or tax. It's definitely a bigger discount that way.

I'll have to do some more research into it.


ugh!! I'm so annoyed right now!! My inlaws went to the lake house again yesterday morning. They act like they never get away, but they are always going to the lake house for the weekend. Anyway, anytime they are coming home, they call and tell us they will be home in a few minutes and to come help unload the car. This time, they had stopped by the store and had a few extra bags from that. Well when they came in (and I'm pretty sure they waited for us to come out of the garage before they got out of the car) they only grabbed what was in the front of the car with them. We carried everything in and I even put up the groceries. I should be doing school work, and not unloading their crap from another weekend getaway. My mil just sat in her chair in the office, and I have no idea where the fil was. I'm just getting so sick of this. Every time they go anywhere, they expect us to bring in their luggage and other junk. When we went to WDW this last June, we didn't expect them to help unload the MV when we got home. I'm really starting to think they want us here, not because they need me due to medical stuff, but they want the free slave labor. grrrr....back to school work. I have 1/2 page out of 6.

SWEET!!! I had so much fun doing the online check in for our June trip. I can't do our online check in until 7/11/13. Our ADR day is 3/11, which the boys will be on Sprig Break for. At first I was upset, because it has me getting up early on a day, when I don't have to. Now I realize it's even better, because I can just go back to sleep and not have to worry about getting the boys to school after I make our ADRs.
