Maybe boil them skin on, then slip the skins off? So sorry about the wrist, Taxy.

Thanks Andy. I just want to be really careful with this so it doesn't turn into full blown carpal tunnel syndrome. I would prefer to avoid surgery.

Hope the wrist feels better soon taxy! I know on the days my fingers don't cooperate I feel so old. I don't care if I GET old, I just don't want to FEEL old!

Thanks CG.

I hear ya. I'm not so fond of this feeling old stuff. Bifocals, pills for osteoporosis, drops for glaucoma, joints that "creak" first thing in the morning, not remembering stuff as well...

I am also dealing with hand/ finger / wrist pain issues. IT STINKS!! And my girls complaining about what I can't do. They are young and complain about doing such a tiny amount of what I did at their age!!

(((Hugs MsM)))

My wrist is nothing as bad as yours. I'm just being really careful. I don't want it getting bad.

Not so happy with DH. He stayed home today, slept most of today even though he claims he's not sick, and skipped work. First time in many years.

I got home from work, and the TV remote was nowhere to be found. I tore the sunroom apart, checked all the usual places, garage, everywhere. DH said he had no idea where he put it. Grrrrr. No help whatsoever.

I finally found the remote, it was sandwiched between a couple of cushions on an unused chair. Did I mention that I was not happy?

Sorry, Dawg. I hope DH is okay, maybe just a case of spring fever out of season, or maybe something at work. Got my fingers crossed for ya that it's just a little glitch. Don't overthink it, it's probably no big deal. I'm sure he'll tell you later.

Thanks, guys, AFAIK, no early dementia in his side, just a bit of schizophrenia and a mite of bipolar. My side all just croaks from heart attacks.

Oh crap.
