    @charlotte989875, I'll take a stab at your battery problem from my own experience.  When I was in college, I had the same issue.  Luckily, my b/f at the time was somewhat handy and he figured it out.  The car's clock was pulling juice from the battery.  I don't know what he did, but he fixed it.  Of course, that was a '70 Chevy Nova.  So old, it was cool again, lol.

    @kimmiinthemitten, go Rosie!  Good luck to her on the temperament test.  Good luck to you on the cleaning!  So hateful, but I'm sure it will be nice to have your sis in town.

    @MissKittyDanger, hopefully you can color your hair soon.  I don't know the "rules" on that for pregnant women, lol.

    Not much going on with me.  The usual.  I haven't had breakfast yet, but am already thinking about carne asada tacos from my new favorite truck for lunch.

    Speaking of food.  I found out there are two Couchon de Lait festivals this weekend.  I'm really excited about that.  Couchon de Lait is like the Cajun version of a Kalua pig.  It is SO good!  I've already checked out the vendor menus and have a game plan, lol.

    @short+sassy what's your meds called? My boss and MIL are on really good stuff. M should be on meds but hasn't been to a dr in awhile *sigh*
    Glad it works though!

    I'm not quite giving credit yet that it works, lol.  I've become jaded by over-the-counter pain medications that work sometimes for me, but often don't.  But 1/1 is at least a hopeful start, lol.

    I don't remember off-hand what it is called and didn't bring any to work.  But I'll look at the name tonight and get back to you.

    My doctor said it is part "the same ingredients in Tylenol", caffeine, and something else that I think starts with "b".  My H and I were not familiar with the third ingredient. 

    I"m guessing it's Fioricet, with the B being the barbiturate which is the 3rd ingredient?
    It's my go to 'mild' drug for'em.

    (Here's the info @MissKittyDanger)

    You are correct!  It is a generic for Fioricet.  The "b" is for butalbital.

    Across the pill if it is the says:

    Butalbital, Acetaminophen, and Caffeine

    I don't suffer from migraines.  Just headaches, on occasion.  So it makes sense my doctor would prescribe a more mild drug for that kind of thing.

    I hope you're feeling better today!

  • Re: Tuesday.

    Multi-day update, lol.

    Fri. -- Dr. visit with my endocrinologist.  All labs are good, except cholesterol and thyroid.  Because I forget to take that medication way too often.  Must fix.  I've been suffering from headaches a lot this year.  No history of that, so it's weird.  Over-the-counters don't usually work for me.  Dr. prescribed a headache medication.  I took it on Sunday when I woke up with a headach and it worked pretty good!  We'll see.  I'm hopeful.

    Sat. -- filled my prescriptions and did some grocery shopping at Wal-mart.

    Sun. -- Grocery shopping at Winn-Dixie.  Got a flu shot.  Watched football.  Saints defense actually looked good (shocker) against the Lions.  Sorrynotsorry @kimmiinthemitten.

    Mon. -- Woke up feeling crappy.  I don't know if it was the flu shot the day before or not.  But that was the excuse I used for why I was calling out sick.  Lounged around and did nothing, except make French Onion meatloaf for dinner.  It was awesome!  Both the lounging and the meatloaf, lol.

    Had the a/c off all day.  ALL DAY!!!  So glorious and about time.

    Tues. -- So much to do at work.  Though, not as bad as it could have been.  I can actually get caught up by the end of the day.  Feeling a lot better, though the arm that got the shot is still uncomfortable and with a little pain here and there.

    Overall, feeling pretty spoiled for having an unexpected 4-day weekend.  Even though Fri. and Mon. mornings were lame with medical stuff/illness.

  • Re: What to do with my engagement ring?

    I'm going to be another PP to chime in that your wedding set should be given to your daughter to pass along in the family to her sons.  This is a bit personal opinion, but I think a wedding set is one of the most meaningful heirlooms there is.  Even if it is just the stones reset into something else.

    My mom offered me her wedding ring set from my dad (he's passed) when my H and I were first talking seriously about getting married.  I accepted and it is currently my set.

    But I know from talking to her that it is very important the set is passed down to future generations.  At the present time, that would be my niece and nephew.  Who are both still children, but I have given instructions to everyone that I am not to be buried with that wedding set.  It is to go to my sister to pass down to one/both of her kids.

    My mom is also okay if the stones are used and reset into a different setting.

    In fact, my H and I have potential plans those children get older...we might buy a new set for me and offer my mom's set to them.

    @short+sassy what's your meds called? My boss and MIL are on really good stuff. M should be on meds but hasn't been to a dr in awhile *sigh*

    We have the same husband.  He can't be "sick" if no one can diagnose it!  H lives off of sugary drinks like soda, milk, milkshakes, and monster and only eats chips and Frito's (no sugar in them, but also not the healthiest of choices) when he's on his own.  I can't get him to eat vegetables when I'm around - but at least he gets meat and potatoes. 

    To be fair, I am avoiding the optometrist because I won't need glasses if I don't get them prescribed.....

    My H and I have a friend who refuses to eat veggies or fruit.  Any of them.  Or anything with veggies/fruit in it.  I'm a real meat eater myself, but I still don't understand it!  There is so much variety in both of those categories to find SOMETHING a person likes.

    I almost think it might be a psychological block.  Like he's told himself for so long that he doesn't like any fruits/veggies, that now he can't even try them.

    Y'all.  He won't even eat guacamole.  Because it is made with avocados.  That is food from the Gods!  It is natural fatty goodness that doesn't even taste like a fruit or veggie.  He says he doesn't like it, but I suspect he's never tried it.
