Chronic pain and depression live with me not the other way around!

Whenever I have pain flare ups I know I'm going to be miserable so after between some housework and a walk to the mailbox I'll lay down and watch some episodes of "Inspector Lewis" of Masterpiece Mystery PBS.
The awesome writing and acting help keep my mind busy and off my increased pain.
Due to the various British dialects and slang I always have the captions on. For example: take away is our take out
Classic Fish and Chips Recipe courtesy of Dan , at Allrecipes.
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup milk
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 pounds cod fillets
Place potatoes in a medium-size bowl of cold water. In a separate medium-size mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the milk and egg; stir until the mixture is smooth. Let mixture stand for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oil in a large pot or electric skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Fry the potatoes in the hot oil until they are tender. Drain them on paper towels.
Dredge the fish in the batter, one piece at a time, and place them in the hot oil.
Fry until the fish is golden brown. If necessary, increase the heat to maintain the 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) temperature. Drain well on paper towels.
Fry the potatoes again for 1 to 2 minutes for added crispness.
Kim Zolciak, The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Kroy Breirmann, Atlanta Falcons, wedding guests were not allowed to take photos due to Bravo filming for their upcoming spin off TV show.
Apparently, the bride and groom changed clothes a few times.
I'm not a fan of the multiple dresses. I like the idea of "the dress"!
Kroy looks very handsome in his tux. Since Kim's dress is very detail I do like that she chose a shorter veil. Check out Kim in her white jumpsuit. I can see how this would be good for dancing all night! I've noticed that brides are starting to have a dress for the reception. This is definitely her style. I love the white bouquet. The dress looks wicked heavy. Here's the wedding dress on the hanger.
We haven't shopped at Sears since June 2010. I needed to purchase a slip and some jewelry for Marcus' high school graduation. Charles and I commented on how dark the store was and that there was no real traffic in the store.
While listening to the radio "Panama" by Van Halen came on. I immediately started singing the lyrics. Marcus, our son, asked me the name of band and then said, "This is a great song Mom"! I smiled. David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen, Alex Van Halen
Christmas was wonderful! Charles didn't have to go to work till the afternoon so we had a delicious breakfast of homemade Belgian Waffles, syrup and coffee.
Marcus slept in so I moved his gifts to his room. My husband and I bought him a gorgeous watch. His response was "A man should have a watch"! Then he gave each of us a hug!
This year I didn't want anything but time with my husband and son. And I did get that. My husband and I spend the day shopping at Town Square and Las Vegas Premium Outlet North and then had lunch. I loved holding his hand as we walked.
Marcus and I went shopping at Sam's Club and Big Lots last week. We love being goofy at Sam's Club...stopping at the food demos, sitting in the recliners and office chairs and walking the aisles.
I purchased the BH Cosmetics28 Neutral Palette, a couple of months ago for $12!
Only recently have I really started putting it to good use. After watching the online demo video a few times I decided to start experimenting with the eye shadows. Even though it's listed under the eye makeup category many of the colors can be used for concealing, blush and contouring.
I also wanted to recommend YouTube. If you do a search for BH Cosmetics you'll pull up several channels that have tutorials and reviews on the eye palettes.
I decided to use 2 colors for blush and contouring the cheeks! You don't have to use a lot since the pigments are very rich! Isn't it great when you find a product that has several uses at an affordable price?
When used properly many people, including myself, have noticed less headaches and sinus congestion issues.
Recently, I read that there are been some deaths linked to some Neti Pot users. They died from Naegleria fowleri, the so-called brain-eating amoeba.
Here's a except from Yahoo Health article: A 51-year-old DeSoto Parish woman died after using tap water in a neti pot to irrigate her sinuses and became infected by the deadly amoeba, which entered the body through her nose. In June, a 20-year-old St. Bernard Parish man died under the same circumstances.
"If you are irrigating, flushing, or rinsing your sinuses, for example, by using a neti pot, use distilled, sterile or previously boiled water to make up the irrigation solution," said Louisiana State Epidemiologist, Dr. Raoult Ratard. "Tap water is safe for drinking, but not for irrigating your nose."
It's also recommended to rinse out the pot after e…
I decided to reuse wrapping paper, newspaper and packing materials this year. A great way to save money and be green too! Our tree reflects our family...ornaments, gift tags, greeting tags, photos and lots of memories. A view from the kitchen area.
The chickens were cute but we needed something more sturdy so my husband and I started looking around for replacements. He really wanted a panel with hooks on it but I thought that plain hooks would work best.
Hello, pewter hooks! I can now display my aprons in the kitchen.
I wasn't in the mood to do a traditional fried chicken so when my husband asked what was for dinner I told him I was planning on putting the chicken in the oven. My husband and son love crispy chicken. Sometimes, it doesn't turn out that way!
Well, this batched did and even got Marcus to the dining table!
