    Hey Sharon hi

    Just got back from my trip to sunny California... the trip was good but I ended up with a horrid flare last night and today -- I think it's probably because I ate different foods, drank different water, etc. I think it is starting to calm down now though.

    Other than that, things are good!! The weather is getting spring-like Yay!!!!

    How are you??

      Hey, back at you...

      Good to hear from you. Sorry about the flare. Yep, probably the water. One thing I have learned is to bring my own "Memphis White" when I travel. Enough to get me through until I can find some bottled water. I try to never drink the unfamiliar local stuff. Memphis has the best municipal water I have ever found. It's because we get our water from a very large aguifer.

      Were you able to enjoy any of the great weather we had this past weekend? It was absolutely glorious. Makes me long for Spring.

      I am doing well. Have a meeting to go to tonight. I will have to tape My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance'. Yep, I got hooked. Yes, I know...I am one sick puppy. lmao Tonight, we find out if Steve and Randi pull off the con. I think it would be funny if the con was really on them and that her family knew all about it all along. lmao See, I told you I am twisted. lmao

        Oooh, I got addicted to Obnoxious Fiance too... I'm watching it right now, and they are just about to show whether the con works... I promise I won't tell you what happens so you can watch your tape with all of the suspense of the real thing

        I hope there is some kind of twist like you say... I would LOVE it if her family knew already wink

        Also you are right, I should have brought my own water... well, next time I will pack some of that too! Anything to avoid the flaring!!

          Hey Sharon! I hope you are doing well and behaving! blink
          I have really enjoyed the weather on my side of TN! wink But now it looks like rain and some snow the rest of the week. :Yuck:

          Sarojini: Glad your trip went well except for the flare. But I'm always glad when the flare hits after I get home.

          Ya'll take care!! grouphug

            hi Jamie...

            Good to hear from you. No, I am not behaving. What fun is in that? lmao I love your part of the state. It is so beautiful there. We lived in the Chattanooga area for about 8 years before moving to Memphis. I miss the Smokies.

            Take care. I won't tell you to be good. Like I said, there is no fun in that. lmao

                I know how you feel SharonA. I currently live in Chattanooga. I just love being so close to the mountains. I have had chances to leave but can't bring myself to. I will probably live here all my life. Its good to hear from others in TN.
