    Things were getting a little funky in the old thread, so I started a new one!

    Oh, you awful people! Taking trips and breaks.... waaaaahhhhhhhh. icon_wink.gif

    We're chugging along as usual. Various errands to get done today and I will be making pint after pint of dill relish. DS2 keeps bringing me cucumbers by the bagfull and we shall have enough pickles and relishes to last us until, geeze, halfway to forever! I am seriously considering giving the stuff away as gifts to various unfortunate people of my acquaintance. icon_lol.gif

    Have been extremely tired this week. Think that the long stretch of heat and humidity, coupled with pushing as hard as possible to get everything lined up and ready to go on various fronts, has worn me down to a nubbin. Have been up from 5:30 am to after 11 at night, only to get up again before daybreak the next day. This is going on 7 days a week so finding time to get some real rest has been difficult. Himself is starting to show signs of wear, too. The 20-somethings on his crew aren't doing much better. Everyone is happy to have a job and very glad of the overtime but it is taking a heavy toll on all of them.
    Once classes start Monday we will have to figure out something about another vehicle as we are one short. DS2 is driving the truckmobile as his car has crapped out. This mean I am driving 150 miles a day, chauffering The Man to work and back. Ds2 is actively looking for another vehicle but he's been working very long hours, as well, so getting a time to actually look has been nigh on impossible. That, and the fact that everyone seems to think their 10 year old used cars are worth 3 times Blue Book value. *sheesh* He had planned on renting a small house here in town but may not be able to do that and still manage a loan for a car. We shall see. Himself is pushing VERY hard for the kid to move out as he doesn't consider it vital that he be at home when, after all, Himself was out on his own at 16. (At least he has shut up about SS being "out on his own." He actually found out that it wasn't quite as simple to make ends meet as he thought and has moved in with one of his aunts to save on expenses.)
    Gotta say that life is not boring in the usual sense of the word! icon_eek.gif

    Oh QDM, being tired is my norm these days! I am trying to get a Docs appt this week as I am fairly convinced that I have Fibro, I just ache all over and it is getting more often, really miserable. Sad and odd thing is that work helps and wine doesn't - what horror! Had IBS flare up this week too so not a totally happy bunny, I shy away from taking anything though.

    Apart from that all is fine, drove the Roo for the last time today, it is going off tomorrow and I just know I will shed a wee tear - valiant motor of mine. I detest the Peugeot gear box - like stirring a very flabby pudding.

    Gobs found a pair of leather fringed chaps today and is now prancing about modelling them - ROFLMAO. The last cowboy.

    Hope everyone is well, happy and wise.

    Linds, you aren't on any statin drugs for cholesterol, are you? Lipitor really did Tony in big time; he was so achey that he couldn't sleep at night. You might also want to try taking 2000 IUs of D3 a day. That helps in a lot of ways.
    Sun Aug 29, 2010 2:14 pm Groupie
    No Rattie not on Statins, been having this for a while now and it is impossible to get a Dr to listen to me, last one said I was depressed - I may well have been but it did not explain the pain in my joints and muscles.
    Have been thinking of trying vit D for a while too, we don't get enough sun here to get our full dose I am thinking.
    Sun Aug 29, 2010 3:08 pm Groupie
    Even if you get loads of sun, people apparently need a lot more D3 than had been assumed. Try it and see if it makes a difference. Or maybe you have fibromyalgia? That's no fun, either. But the D3 is easy; you probably should be taking it anyway - and Gobby, too.

    Dang, Linds! Sounds like you are in about the same condition I am... tired and achy. I barely fall out of bed in the morning. Back locked, neck stiff, etc etc. Have to keep moving to get things loosened up. Doc says she knoiws something isn't right but she also says she is not sure what is happening. Doesn't think I am depressed but would need an endocrinologist to figure out which hormones are out of whack. The ones up at Mayo would be no help, either, according to her. Estrogen supplements put me in a huge slump, est and progesterone don't seem to do a thing, progesterone by itself seems to alleviate a number of symptoms and the tiredness. This is all just SO frustrating. And add in the weight gain? Hmmmm, maybe I am depressed? icon_lol.gif
    Sad to see the Roo go. I can't imagine going from that little beast to a Peugeot. eeewwww
    Think I am finished with the canning. Have 2 dozen pints of hot-spicy dills and 11 of dill relish. If I trusted the recipe submission bit here, would post the relish but not sure things are copacetic, yet. Stopped at the local gas station to fill up for tomorrow and the clerk said I smelled like pickles. Not bad, just pickley.
    Classes start tomorrow and I must admit I am suffering from some degree of trepidation. Can I remember things? What happens when the particular word I need to use doesn't pull out of my brain's database? Was talking with Himself earlier about this and told hinm my first class was Pharmacology. He wanted to know what I was doing taking classes related to farms? (I think he needs a vacation.) No, dear, not Farmacology (whatever the hell that is) but Pharmacology, you know? Prescriptions, drugs, all that? I know that he knows better so have no idea where his head was. Other than up his... oh, no wait, can't say that. bwahahahahaaaaa
    Gobs prancing around in fringed chaps is just something I dare not consider. I hope he is not singing "Macho Macho Man", truly!
    After all the pickling and canning today, I am ready for a nap. It's 3 p.m. and I am worn out...

    Aches and pains and tiredness, yes, that is me too, as Linds knows! I also suffer from a stiff neck and shooting pains in my head, as well as the damn panic attacks and dizziness! The thing is, if we were all pregnant - Heaven forbid at our age, bit if we were - there are a myriad of organisations and medical centres that we could go to for help and SUPPORT - Menopause - NUTHIN - we are just getting old and mad apparently! It makes me so angry.......................

    Sorry to hear that you are both feeling out of sorts - and I am sick to the back teeth with bloody canning Queenie - if Malkie approaches me again bearing gifts of PLUMS - I will go ballistic!

    On a happier note, I am, getting excited about out mini break to the Basque country! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

    Hope the car becomes a friend soon Linds - Galaxy car is limping along.....................

    GOOD LUCK tomorrow Queenie - you will blow them away!

    Ah, hell, Tart, I understand entirely. If males had this kind of lingering garbage going on, you know for sure someone would be doing SOMETHING about it. But us? Nope. (god forbid, pregnancy. NONONONONO 5 was just plenty and not fun, at that.)Panic attacks, yes. I have meds for that. Been in hospital, thinking i was having a heart attack or something.

    I have totally sworn off any kind of canning for the near future. This last lot of pickles and relish has me totally wiped out. It annoys me, though, that 2 years ago I canned 120 quarts of tomatoes and it didn't faze me at all. Then I did the green tomato relish and your whatsis with the nigella seed. What the devil is wrong with me, anyway? I'm only 55, not 255....

    We all seem to be having some kind of stress reaction but what do we do about it? I don't know about any medical studies that give any indication of help for whatever we are going through. Why is it that the women seem to suffer the most from circumstances? Is it because our strengths makes us more liable to stress-induced problems? We are the caretakers, the protectors. We are the ones who look to the future and plan. We hold the world together for all those males and children who just jaunt along and never think beyond the next second. We not only know where things are, we seem to know "why" they are. We know our kid's thoughts and inclinations. We understand and sympathize with our mate's maleness and total lack of a clue. For all that, we are left out of the general equation of life.
    What would they do without us?

    Perzakerley QDM - what the hell would they do????

    Oh my Tartlet where are you going to put anymore jars LOL????? How I would love to be there with you pickling etc, just no point doing any here no-one I know likes or eats them only me, and once in a blue moon. I do lust after the beautiful brambles I see coming on and I have been known to raid the local park for the fruit from the Japonica bushes - makes a wonderful jelly, just another member of the Quince family I think??

    Thanks Rattie, have ordered the D3 online, huge savings will let you know how we go.
