    I've had several ointments, triamcinolone, clobetasol, enbrel and one other steriod ointment for my eyelids to be used only when absolutely necessary as constant long term use is not recommended for eye area. One doctor thought it might be allergy based - he advised me to not take hot showers as is dries out your skin - I can't even tell you the last time I had a hot shower - they're always cool to room temp - needless to say I don't waste a lot of water showering. I'm looking at the gluten free diet to see if that changes any of my symptoms - giving it a good 30-day trial. I'm thinking the hops in my beer is another trigger - sad to see it go but if it will help hallelujah. If there is improvement I'll have the wheat sensitivity test done just to confirm.

    Each day is new and I try to live my life that way - I don't concern myself with things I can't control anymore - I can only change me and my behavior. Stress could be what triggers my eczema as well - it started up a few years ago and unconsciously this is how my body reacts - without going into a lot of details my dad kicked me out of the family because I and my adult children decided we would be staying home for Christmas Eve and not going to their house; my mother does what my father tells her to do so you could say I became an orphan on Perl Harbor Day Dec 2011. I have estranged siblings because of all this - my baby sister was my best friend and it breaks my heart because that relationship is gone as well. My dad had just been diagnosed with prostate cancer and it had gone on long enough that it moved into his bones - all that drama over not coming to dinner. My dad has always ruled his house and family with an iron fist and I always marched to my own tune - this wasn't the first time he's done this to me but will be his last - I forgive him but I won't forget - this last time damn near destroyed me emotionally and mentally; I value and cherrish my life and friendships more than his approval. So yes - I guess stress could be my unconscious trigger as well. Guess you could just say I'm a flake - no pun intended.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    ok, i completely forgot about the 17th being the mailing date and had focussed on the 24th and so proud to be done early. FAT CHANCE! LOL. sikesjj, a heavyish package is coming to beau. i will let you know the expected arrival date. i expect it will be either ups or fed-ex, so watch your trash cans! lol. i found a time sensitive envelope dropped off by ups behind my flowering plants yesterday. so glad someone paid extra to have them hide it from us! they are developing all the bad habits of the previous monopoly!
    d'sm-- your package goes out today-- i couldn't fit you-know-what in the package, so will wait for colder weather and a bigger box/envelope! sure enjoyed having you as a rec'r and i hope the wait, altho' incredibly long, will prove worth it! brat-- cross me off the list as owing. my obligations have now been met!

    oh no Nancia not crossing you off lists. no way no how. um you must owe something.. like a song to me, or perhaps a poem for Jaba or a .. something.. let me dig it up surely its there somewhere.. nope not in this pocket.. nope not under the couch where I happen to hide lots of things (found that out when we moved it).. um.. give me time girl.

    Today we head out to Wyoming! Le grand adventures of Le Brat and her entourage" shall begin! El grumpo and the screaming cats seemed well.. less exciting. I am going to be positive and thrilled the entire way. I just know it. And promise to share how much fun it is after 12 hours in the car tonight when we dance our way into Salt Lake City. There is a story into itself. A how dumb is she story in fact. (surprise!). I went online smartly and booked my hotel! I got confirmation which I immediately tucked into a save me folder! I checked it out last night in order to put down the confirmation number on paper when we got there. Uh.. the dates are wrong on that? how could that be?? So I get this sinking feeling. I had wondered why they had already charged me. Usually they hold your number and charge you if you dont show up. well I sure didnt show up. it was for 2 weeks ago. Call get the Manager explain that I am an idiot and had not double checked the email. We will squeeze into their full hotel. For an extra 30.00 now that is an expensive mistake. lesson learned. check it, check it twice and my case have someone else double check my double check. sigh. boy did I feel stupid. (earned that one by the way). dumb bunny!

    la bratina, pretty dancer, even if you were a dumb bunny, which you are not, or i couldn't have used were instead of are, you must know that soebunny loves you! we all make little tiny boo-boos once in awhile. it proves we are human and in no competition with any dieties, single or otherwise. so don't you dare speak bad about my friend like that!!

    Here here! I second Nancia! We all make mistakes. I'm just glad the man had a room for you! Have a safe trip and let us know you're OK!!!

    We still have several I haven't heard from. I'm thinking the next time I'm going to ask for an outside email too, for a non-telephone kick in the pants. I'm not going to stress though. It's summer and I know everyone is busy.

    I don't think Dabbler ever posted a pic of what I made for her so I'll show you the other half of our swap. She wanted a wild life/ nature theme to go with some mounts in their house. I made her this runner and 2 throw pillow covers for her couch. I sent her some western quilt labels that I had.

    love both of those Jaba and Dabbler! Great looking and excuse ME but those would look good on my table thank you very much. Send immediately.

    next: Le Grand Adventures of le Brat and her entourage: We pulled out at 8 am yesterday! made it with a loud choir of three cats who expressed their extreme sadness for leaving our home in the woods. Very loudly to ensure we didnt miss a single note they even hit high notes unheard of before to the human ear. Little angels they were! We made it 20 minutes down the path to a new beginning when my dear sweet man looks at me and says.. you remembered my back pack right? uh what? I packed the entire front house my bathroom which btw had half his stuff in it. I said her is the key you can walk through he didnt. he wanted to leave. so... we turn around and go back to the house to get his stuff which I had kindly said have it fed x over night to jaba's and buy a new shirt and undies along the way. NOOOOO.. soo El GRUMPO EMERGES and is very displeased I did not get his stuff and well I am silent. oh joy great start. singing cats still. we get back get his things people are up wanting to chat pull out at.. 9 am now. oh great. now we are starting late. shoot. so the next thing up is .. singing cats.excuse me 1/2 hour into it one gave up.. one never sang to begin with. one is letting us know he wants to go home NOW. for the next hour. Then we smoothly traveled along for the next 12 hours occassional bouts of singing not too bad. Nevada was prettier than I expected in a very stark way? It grew on me, not enough to move there but it grew on me. We arrive in Salt lake at 11:20 cant find the hotel. call syri! she cant find the hotel either. argh! so.. I call the hotel .. the guy starts to give directions that well if you knew the area were not driving at 11:20 for your 14th hour and the lights are all blurring and those STUPID orange fix the highway cones are not everywhere saying drive right through the slot here! like cattle gates but only scarier. The man says things are blurring. Super great news! we find finally la quinta! get in the driveway I go in.. sorry wrong La Quinta. WTHell so we drive some more til amazngly we found the hotel. the lady has a brand new off the plane from India accent. I cant understand her at all. She is snarling at me. I am ready to snarl at her. I don't pat the brat on the back. We get the cats head into the hotel they start SCREAMING at the top of their lungs oh my god if i could have turned and run I would have. We try to rush to the elevator they are seriously at the top of their little lungs.. and they shut up for the elevator but start again in the hallway El Grumpo is saying open the damned door quick open it well it unlocks but its so heavy I cant push it open and argh pirates.. he has to we let the cats out the one still screams oh hell.. 4 minutes or eternity which ever came first he shuts up and its 12:15 tada we are alive. hadnt had dinner. the plug in cooler didnt work. everything we had in the cooler was roasted. super! so no food for le brat. I am off to explore the breakfast grab some fruit hopefully and then we hit the road again.. I am excited about more singing. for 9 hours if not more the way El Grumpo drives. Wish me luck. ps its my fault we got lost last night too, who knew!

    We have 3 swap members who are currently MIA. I'm hoping they haven't been swallowed up by their fabric stash!

    If you haven't received your package and haven't spoken to your partner in a while, please drop me a note and let me know, if you haven't already. I just sent the three I haven't heard from another message & I'm going to give them until Wednesday to respond before I get out my handy dandy tele & reach out to them that way.
