Then you wouldn't like my favorite band Epica!

I don't know of any reason why you couldn't make any black or herbal or green tea iced.

Just curious if the effects would be the same.

I make most of my teas with room temp water. The camomile still gives off a lovely aroma.

I am basically a cavewoman with a salad spinner. I love lettuce soooo much.

I love the motown era girl groups. Altho "will you still love me tomorrow" was written by carole king.

Ah. I know it's supposed to be calming chamomile – but I've never really felt anything from it and I don't like the taste so I'm always mixing it with something else like mint. I tried one of my persons happy pills to help her anxiety over one of her chemos, her description of it being like whoosh and calm immediately when she put one under her tongue was not what I experienced because I experienced nothing from it. I think it was lorazepam. I am either so chill that I can't get chiller, or I'm so tightly wound that there is no unwinding

I am so sorry for all the confusion @Lemoncake - I really hope that you find out what happened to the funds. 1000 is still 1000, it just didn't vanish - and you said it all went into one person's bank account. I am glad you were able to speak up, I really hope it gets resolved soon. (((Hugs))

I used to take a shot after every phone call when I worked for TurboTax. Needless to say, I was woozy by hour "two" of my eight-hour shift, lol. I have been sober for a while now, but I remember the stress @ArtieTheSequal - the poopulation seems to be getting more and more embolden to yell customer service reps, although I wasn't really mad at folks that yelled at me for getting charged by TurboTax, the charlatans used to advertise "free, free, free" when they really weren't free at all during that time, lol.

Today was a good day. Put the whip down on myself and shared about it at my AA homegroup this week. Also found a new smoothie place in my area, the heat has just been unbearable. Therapy will be next Tuesday at regular time, but I think things are going to be okay. For once I can WOOSAH, and just breathe today.

Well y'all I'm dipping my toes back into therapy briefly, with someone new. My insurance now offers 10 free sessions with an online t, so I signed up and when the t I got matched with contacted me, I explained that basically I'm looking for a little help with letting L go while still holding onto the gains I made during that therapy. I'm not looking for any deep work (I've done enough of that to choke a horse). Anyway it sounds like she understands what I'm looking for. So I'm cautiously optimistic that this will help. I think about L every freaking day, multiple times a day, and still talk to her in my head every night. I want that to go away. My first session with R (new, short-term t) is next week.

It’s okay Art. Well done for giving it a go with someone new.

I also emailed the same woman from last year asking for a session yesterday.

I am making ice cream. By hand. For the first time ever. Vanilla fudge ripple. This could be bad.

Are you using a hand cranked ice cream maker where you use all that ice and rock salt? My brother and I used to love to snag pieces of that salty ice to eat when we made it as a kid. I remember when my family got one with an electric motor - we had ice cream several times that summer - you still had to add the rock salt and ice but the motor turned the crank.

Lately I've found solace in the pure energy of a cappella music.

Pulled another all-nighter. 5am-10am seem to be my sleep schedule now. How horrible is that? This is with 25mg of Hydroxyzine and 10 mg of Melatonin for sleep and a CPAP machine. I feel like I need someone to literally come and knock me out every night.

I wonder if your medications are just having the opposite effect. It’s possible? Have you tried without the melatonin?

I have to get ready for work. Need to be out the door by 8am. My stomach is freaking killing me today. Hoping it subsides in the next 45 minutes.

Have you ever listened to The Martins? They're a christian a cappella group, siblings Joyce, Jonathan, and Judy. They are just fabulous, I saw them in concert a long time ago. Here is one of my favorites of theirs.
