    Our highway was closed for the better part of three days, started Thursday, even today they are in poor condition and as a result I can't get Diesel, and food is starting to run out...I need stuff for my sons lunches this week.

    Oh and the water is frozen in random spot in my trailer thanks to the -41 weather, and the Jeep doesn't want to start, and I have to go to work in 2 hours.

    Learned an important lesson today: eating just a snack with my daily vitamins as opposed to a full meal makes me very, very sick...

    I already learned that lesson. I took my vitamins with a handful of Cheerios once and quite promptly puked.

    I went out to my work's annual party thing last night, had a few drinks, felt fine. Got home, promptly puked ALL over the place. Woke up this morning and dry heaved for about 2 hours while trying to get ready for work. I was sitting on the floor in my bathroom trying to blow dry my hair, I felt so awful. I called out. I slept from 10-2:30, woke up, and puked again after I tried to drink something. I feel better now. So, so, so embarrassed to call out this morning. Usually I can drink just fine, but every once in a while it hits me like this. :wall:

    Same here even a fully bowl of cold cereal with milk even still isn't enough, ironically just a cup of oikos Greek yogurt & they never give me a problem ... Go figure :???: maybe the yogurt costs the stomach better.

    I have also started taking gummy vita C instead of the pills or chewable kind as its easier on my stomach.

    Yeah, I started taking vitamins in the last week, I'm taking a prenatal multi (not preggers, my doctor recommends it), a B complex, and gummy calcium vitamins. Typically I take them with breakfast and I'm fine, but thus morning we were going out to breakfast so I took them with a snack, was nauseous, and by the time we ate at the restaurant it was just bad. I didn't puke-probably would have felt better if I did-my stomach is just starting normal now...ugh.

    the anreps

    In those cases I just take my vites with me to the restaurant LOL, I know i probably look strange popping a bunch of stuff (though I spread them out throughout the day because even with a meal I cant take them all at once or I get sick :/) So in the morning I take the immune vites (lysine, gummy C) & my collgean for my hair, skin & nails (highly recomended if you dont already. my hair has grown like... three inches since I have begun taking it about six months ago) with a standard cup of Oikos greek yogurt in the morning & I have yet to be sick. the ones I have to take with a real meal are a multi (which I am not taking right now) & my metabolism vites.

    I can't take vitamins with iron in them regardless of how much I eat with them - perhaps that's some of the issues you all have had?

    My phone died today. :( People at at&t couldn't get it to work either, luckily it was still covered under warranty so I'm getting sent a new one, but... it's gonna take a week to get here! I have my crappy old one from a couple years ago I can use in the meantime. But it's crappy. And seems so archaic compared to what I'm used to lol. I'm gonna be sooo bored on my lunch breaks now.

    Also not really a "vent"... but I have to do 2 dentals tomorrow. On cats. I'm not exactly the most experienced at dentals and it's been almost 2 years since I last did one. And I don't like kitty dentals! I'm freaking just a little bit. I just hope the rest of the day is relatively easy, since tomorrow is my surgery tech day that means pretty much everything falls on me.... soooo no transfers from the e-clinic, please!

    Are you doing the anesthesia or the dental itself? Cat dentals aren't so bad, they're actually my favorite since they go so quickly :)

    It does have like 150% iron, so that could be it. Hopefully tomorrow I won't have the same issue, I really need the iron!

    Just the dental itself. I'm just sooo rusty and probably slow lol and I have no idea how icky their mouths are. They do go more quickly, but I hate trying to manipulate their tiny mouths :p

    This is also the first time that we've actually had procedures scheduled on my surgery day, so the whole process of setting up for it and getting the animals ready to go is new for me too. Yay Mondays!

    I am the most indecisive person ever. And it is driving me crazy.

    I want a nice camera. Decided on the Canon Rebel T3 last week. I can't seem to pull the tigger. I keep going over so many reviews, price quotes, image quality tests...

    I should just get it right? Just DO it. But that seems to be utterly impossible.

    Other rant, all this moving stuff is going soooo frigginnnn sloooooow. It's driving me crazy. I just want it done and over with already. I hate running around last minute. Worst of all, they scheduled Jin for THREE back-to-backs(gone for 4 days, home for 2....x3) while we are supposed to be getting this all together. I'm sorry, how are we supposed to get EVERYTHING done in TWO DAYS? Especially when his breaks fall over weekends?

    Ugggh.

    huarule nature

    I had a phone do that to me too, it was an HTC something or other windowss phone 1G, I hated it so much when it died (just turned off & wouldnt turn back on again) I opted for an Iphone.which so far ... for the most part I like. At times its a tad glitchy (weather widget sometimes doesnt want to update) but all in all its a good phone.

    If it helps why not make sure the place you buy it from will exchange it if it has been opened and buy on a day you can spend lots of time playing with it to quickly decide if it's what you were hoping for. Worse thing that happens is you have to return it.
