Thread Details

The PUBLIX thread is IMHO the best grocery store thread around heart
Here's a little chat area for us all to share info, recipes, rant's, raves and whatever else we want without clogging up the regular weekly deals thread for PUBLIX. If we want to share super deals we find in other stores or whatnot that's ok too heart

I think we all are such a great family that it's a good to have our own special place Grouphug


You can post basically anything you like in here but let's keep deals info in the actual PUBLIX thread. All are welcome and basically no major rules except be kind and courteous of other's and treat each other with respect. Other than that let's all have some fun! Also you don't have to shop at PUBLIX to share in the chat or whatnot... we like everyone.

By diet, I meant Greek yogurt, apples, high fiber tortillas, Laughing cow cheese, bananasEmbarrassment I find that alot of the "diet" food (Atkins and South Beach bars) have a TON of calories. Even the 100 calorie packs of cookies are alot of points in Weight Watchers because they have no real nutritional value. I'm trying to eat alot more fruits, vegetables, and good-for-you foods. I don't need to be thin, just at my healthy weight again so I can have more energy and stamina.
If you have Aldi, you might want to check it out...they have bagged spinach, hummus..org apples/bananas, greek yogurt, low fat cheese, etc..

ERGH - if I could just have 1 moment of peace - or at least an uneventful day! Trying to prepare for upcoming DDs birthday & she woke up this morning with a bright pink, swollen, itchy, painful left hand. She didn't go to bed that way.

I stripped her bed looking for any type of insect, arachnid, etc. Found nothing. We have regular pest control and haven't seen a bug in the house (not even a tiny ant or spider) in forever. She can't seem to decide what happened (first she said she got bit by an ant at school yesterday, then she said a spider bit her in the middle of the night last night).

I drew an outline of the red to see if it spread or not. The redness hasn't moved, but the puffiness seems to be getting worse. Have you ever seen something so swollen that it looks shiny? Well, her hand is shiny. Earlier in the day she said it didn't hurt or itch, as the day progressed, I saw her constantly rubbing it on her skirt, like she was scratching it without using her fingers, lol. She also started to say it hurt and she was in tears when DH held her hand firmly to look at it.

DH finally got home, so I had him take her to urgent care. Hopefully I'm just over-reacting, lol.

Thanks guys! They're home. The doctor said it's a bug bite and told us to give her Benadryl (we didn't have any earlier today, so I gave her Claritin, lol. DH stopped on the way home & got her some Benadryl. The doc also gave us a script for prednisone, supposed to take first dose tonight.

Her hand is still red, puffy & itchy - but it's a little less puffy. However, it doesn't appear to be hurting her to badly, she is being a little Cinderella this morning (prior to the princess part) - as in: she decided she wanted to wipe down the garbage can, the wall behind the garbage can, the fridge and the floor - all with a wet paper towel, while in her nightgown. Her sister (2) decided to copy her and sweep the floor. Hubby laughed and said look at the little Cinderellas.

Have to run to P in a few to get her birthday cake for the party. 20+ 3-7 year olds for 2 hours might drive me to drink, lol. At least it's not at my house!

Wondering how she got us to have 2 birthday parties AND cupcakes for her class Ohmy

Since there was no coke bogo or b2g2 this year for superbowl, and there aren't really any holidays until memorial day, is there no chance for bogo or b2g2 by end of March to use the free coupons?

Oh wait, duh, easter is end of March? Maybe then.

Someone please come make the buttercream frosting for me - oh - and frost the cupcakes too please! I'm so tired from the party today. I did manage to make the cupcakes during the power outage at the Super Bowl, lol.

Okay, okay, since no one volunteered to come make the frosting & frost the cupcakes - I did it. Only problem, I rushed a bit on mixing and the frosting kept clogging the tip. They still turned out awesome, but my hands are killing me (and the spiral didn't come out as pretty as it could, but hey, these are 4 & 5 year olds we're talking, lol).

I think you need to quit baking and have a drink. Or I'll drink an extra one in your honor, because I'm helpful like that.

The way I see it
every life is a pile of good things and bad things.
The good things don’t always soften the bad things
but vice versa
the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things
and make them unimportant

If I volunteered I would frost one, eat one, frost one, and eat one, LOL! I hope your DD's bite is less painful and itchy. I've had fire ant bites before and they are not fun. Last one I had, my foot was so swollen I couldn't wear a shoe for 24 hours.

LMAO! I'll toast to that! Cheers

We tried those Redd's tonight and they are so yummy! Taste like a light cider with a little fizz. To easy to drink. Beer

It didn't seem to bother her at all during her party. It's still red & pretty swollen, but didn't stop her from bouncing!

This place (indoors) even had an inflatable slide that was literally as tall as the ceiling. These little 4 & 5 year olds (and my 2-year old), LOVED THAT. There was only 1 little girl who went up to the top & was too scared to come down. She ended up coming back down the stairs. My birthday girl had no problems climbing the stairs - and I didn't notice her itching it at all. I don't know if it was feeling better or if she was just too distracted!

So did you end up with the amount of kids that you planned for?
