I'm a bit concerned/curious. As some of you may know, I found out I was diabetic last year. Type 2, pill only. Well the beginning of the week, I noticed that I started getting super exhausted when I took my Metformin. Like I couldn't keep my eyes open at work kind of exhausted. I mainly noticed it Tuesday cause I was starting to get some energy again, then took my second pill and started getting tired again. Yesterday, as a test, I didn't take the metformin and felt super. Like better than I'd felt in weeks. WTH?!

We are really just "Paying it Forward"...have been waiting on a chance to do something like this since someone did something wonderful for us a while back

So weekend at home, least the weather is still glorious


That is WONDERFUL!!! I am very much a believer in karma and you've got a big load of good karma coming your way I can tell!!

I'd like to think that my friends would do that for me

This usually lasts for about a week and should subside once your body adjusts to the change in the way it handles your sugars. You may want to talk with your Dr and let them know about any side effects you are having, but extreme fatigue is pretty common. Both my Dad and my oldest son have taken metformin, one for diabetes and one for insulin resistance.

They swore up and down that you live in Ireland. I told them more than once you didn't but I don't think they believed me.

Robbie - keep in mind, I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV.

Did you just start taking the pills? If so it just might take some time for your body to adjust. Are you eating any "naughty" foods - that might also have something to do with it. If you're concerned, contact your doctor?

Hi homies!!! Can't sleep so have been catching up on this thread.

Holy Crap!!! Snakes and bears and minks Oh MY!!! I clearly have zero reason to ever complain again. We are in an older 1950's house surrounded by trees now. Used to be in brand new townhouse with only the "landscape" trees and some external bug system that fed pipes thru the house so I was big time spoiled. Our plans were to buy old and refurb and I am so glad we decided to rent first!!

Sending super hugs to all that have lost pets. I found out ours had to be put down in the middle of a client dinner and burst out into tears!!! That was a few years ago and I still get teary eyed.

Blood sugar is not a force to be reckoned with. Sending good vibes that you feel better soon.

BTG seem to be getting worse over the years. I mean do we really need the chanting?? Oh vey. I have never run into them at the Darkside though. Our worst experience was about 8 years ago at Sea World. #Scarred4Life.

Oh. And been away for a while and now see that room keys are no longer used for FOTL. It's still unlimited tho right? Just in paper form now w a pic?

Trying to plan a trip soon. Baby#2 is coming no later than Monday (it is finally sinking in - eeks!! hence the sleepless nights) so between budget, no vacay, and recovery may have to live vicariously through you all.

Glad to see all of the changes; and yet, not much has changed at all!!! xoxoxo.

i vote for you to have the baby on sunday.
yea, like you have a choice ....



be sure to give us a heads up when baby arrives.


sending you for the loss of your pet. doesn't matter when it happened, it still lingers in your heart for years.

a year ago last february/'12, the darkside announced that the ep system was changing for onsite guests.
it didn't get off the ground until spring though.

you check into the hotel, get your hotel room key card, then go to the kiosk near the lobby desk to create your express pass.

show that tyvek paper ep pass at the entrance express line and you're good to go.


come on back when you can't sleep.


i'll leave the light on for youse.

But......you know me....I talk to everyone and around the parks when I have struck up conversations with people.....the amount of nationalities I have been asked if I am......strangest one was French A woman from Texas came over to me once.....she had heard me speak in the queue for the bathroom......and asked if I was German......I do have a bit of German in me but not speech wise!!!!

Yes you get your picture taken after you get your room key, there are machines in reception area and in the parks and it`s put on a separate paper .....same size as room key.....and it`s definitely still Unlimited EP

Good luck with bubba no2.....looking forward to a picture


Not much going on here today.......housework......salad preparing......and that`s about it.

Looking forward to going up to Scotland next weekend......leaving the 2 boys to fend for themselves for about 10 days I think...spend some time with mum and visiting friends and family.

Hope everyone has a great weekend

I love Scotland... I've only been once but it was such a good trip. I'd love to visit again someday. The Fringe Festival in Edinburgh is incredible!

schumi, you are such a really nice person to give your friends the trip!




something very good will come your way now.



have fun with mum and enjoy all the time with your family & friends on that trip.

10 days in the homeland and then a short wait until you come to the darkside.

you lead a fun life!!


mr mac took off early this morning for a canoe adventure.
he is making this a short one of 3 days.
he loves anything that has to do with water and sleeping on the ground.

taking one son to the dentist for another molar to be crowned.
i keep watching the hhn site to see when tours will be available.
don't have wifi at the dentist so hope someone will call me if they see tours open up if i am not home.

hope everyone has a great weekend...........just get thru today and 5:00 will come quickly.

goND -another baby for the homies to ooh and ahhh over good luck with the delivery (better living thru chemistry)

tomoorow we head to the real sticks for DIL's employer sponsored free movie day v.2. How far out in the country is it? they lost power ten minutes into the first show a month ago and cancelled all the showings for the rest of the day.

youngest son took megabus to NYC yesterday with his buds for a vacation at one of their parents' homes as home base near sandy creek area. I do believe I developed a few new grey hairs. He'll be missing the BD dinner i'm having for my two oldsons on Sunday, they don't seem too thrilled to be sharing a celebration lol.

what's everybody else doing this weekend?
