Slight ddeflection. The diet is similar to the one I have been on since the first of the year. It is not that hard and not that ascetic.

Back on point- unexpected pregnancies are rough. I hope teh existing kids don't get wind of it-they will make teh future sibling's life very unhappy with a couple ill placed comments.Grownups can be trusted to at least call it an oops baby

The news papers block you after 2 articles ( or 5 articles) because tehy track your device. My brother suggested running CCCleaner dot com which removes the tracking counters, so that the paper thinks you are new again. I haven't tried it. I pay for NYTimes. I get enough of Tribune and WaPo doesn'y have a wall yet. WSJ doesn't give you freebies as far as I know..
CCcleaner doesn't work for the Trib. I have a yahoo address for shopping and I had to start a gmail one for the tablet. So I used the gmail on the tablet and will try the yahoo one sometime. I do know that the cleaner won't remove the tracker. Won't work on the Sun Times either.

I tried a similar diet once, not as a "diet", but as part of a healthy lifestyle change. It made me miserable, but I comfort eat and having to think that much of what I should and shouldn't eat was the problem.

I'm glad it's working for you :)

That sucks and I know that being far away makes it even harder :( Are you planning a trip to see her anytime soon?

Sorry to hear that, man.

Just support her in her decision; my gram did something similar and it was liberating to her that no one fought it. It allowed her to go in *her* way.

Oh, man, I'm so sorry. I don't blame her either.

I went to the eye doctor yesterday for my final Lasik follow up, and the room was FULL of people age 70+. It made me miss all my grandparents so much, I actually teared up.

We are lucky people, those of us who got to enjoy them in to our adulthoods.

He's apparently not freaking out on the level she is. He was busy crunching numbers "We can afford it!" and all this and she's like "It's not really about the money..." But considering he was fine with just the first two, and she had to argue for the third, I'm sure he's not doing backflips or anything.

I'm thinking of trying the diet. It'd basically be what I had been doing periodically but cutting out dairy. I was totally "the fat friend" this weekend. Not that I'm ginormous, but all three of my friends are beanpoles. And at least 6 inches taller than me, which doesn't help. I could stand to drop 20.

She's going to wait until she can compose herself reasonably before telling the kids--she doesn't want them to think that's how they reacted before they were born. I know she'll embrace it, it's just going to take time.

I have moments like this too, where I miss my grandmother so much I tear up. She lived with us for almost all of my childhood so we were really close.

I will talk to Bambi tonight. I will have to go see her one more time. It is hard because Bambi works Monday, Wednesday, and Friday nights and has class on Monday and Wednesday mornings. I may only be able to fly up on a Saturday and fly home on a Sunday. Her mom is coming out here at the end of the month, but I'm not sure I have that long.

I guess there is the possibility they could do some sort of surgery on her, but she doesn't want chemo or radiation. Right now we don't know if surgery is an option.
