I have a deteriorating hip and the base of my spine. If I stand or walk too long, it starts to hurt. I get a script of a ten day supply with the directions take two, three times a day.

I have always been reluctant to become reliable on pain killers. But PF has stayed on my case these past couple of years telling me that I need to take them, when I need them. I finally got the message. And this dang foot has certainly brought that home, loud and clear.

I have a refill coming today. And I do need them. Right now the Vicodin are working for me. And I am sure when the day comes that they no longer are, Winthrop will explore with me other pain meds that they can prescribe. I am no longer concerned with becoming addicted. My son Poo told me that it is very difficult to become addicted to pain killers if you really need them. And I do, unfortunately.

I always thought so.

I never think of the Vicodin until I feel pain. And then it has to be a sharp one. So I doubt very much that I am becoming addicted. Thank you so much for all your support.

H2O in micro!(yes ! 2 the video) EGGplosive alternative....

I had made scrambled eggs in the micro many times (sprayed bowl w/pa,, put in micro for 20 seconds, pour BEATEN egg in bowl, spray a small saucer with pam and place on top of bowl / pam side facing egg, micro 1 minute), so when people told me that I couldn't make a soft boiled egg in the micro, i refused to believe ! So I sprayed a bowl with pam and used my method above, after the minute was up, I didn't expect the minute to go by so quickly. so I rushed to get my toast done, pour my coffee and set my table. I lifted the dish and there sat a BEAUTIFUL soft egg, I could see the soft yolk showing thru the thin egg skin. I was so proud. "HA HA ha and phooie to all those Naysayers" (i thought)..... I just could not wait to stick my spoon in to break the yolk and watch it run and ooze out.
Big smile on my face as I slowly stuck my spoon in to savour the golden ooziness. BUT instead I hear a LOUD EXPLOSIVE BANG ..... So loud I instinctively closed my eyes. When I opened them, it took me a few seconds to gather my wits. Still facing the bowl I realized my egg was totally gone. Then I realized my face felt a little wet. WAIT did i say alittle?
I wiped my face THERE was my GOLDEN OOZINESS all over my face !
OMG as I looked around and wiped the goodness from my face I realized it was in my hair, on my eyelids, IN an EAR, on the ceiling were tiny bits of egg and yolk hanging, the light fixture, ( i had to turn the light off quickly cause it was cooking and burning on the bulb !), grandbabies toys, the windows, the ceiling fan, my shirt, as I began cleaning up I was finding bits of egg ALL over the place .... on the phone, in the OTHER ROOM on the fridge, 2 drops on the TV in the living room (holey cow ... traveled straight thru 2 serving windows) 9 feet apart and 5 more feet to the tv ! I had to shower to get all the egg off and out of me, and for DAYS I was finding bits of egg all over the downstairs. OH did I mention IN MY SHOE by the back door in the kitchen 1 day later as I slipped my foot in ... EWE ...... YOLK !! HOW The Heck ??!
Anyway, that's my eggPLOSIVE soft boiled egg story/nightmare.
LONG story short, well Too Late for THAT.... Water in cup as in that video someone posted, is a better idea for a soft boiled egg.

When hubby can in to see what the noise was and I couldn't explain, just stood there with "EGG ON MY FACE" and I was thinking of THAT VERY phrase as I stood there.... I didn't have to say a word, he looked at my dish, then my face.... it was dead quiet for about 30 seconds then I just "cracked up " laughing. He was trying not to cause he didn't know how I'd react, but when I started laughing, so did he. He offered to help me clean up, but I just shook my head and laughingly motioned him to go back upstairs.
ha ha ha
