That's the pathetic part of the story. They each came with a hole to hang them up on. I'm usually aware of where the hole is and consciously position the pot holder to avoid the hole. Just had a senior moment and zapped myself. 450F on my left thumb.

As some of you already know I am on a mission to stop smoking. I'm using the patch and it's working great except for one thing. I am having nightmares !! I am now soooo tired and really dreading going to bed anymore. Why can't I have nice dreams ???

Hasn't the doctor or pharmacist suggested not wearing the patch at night, since it is giving you nightmares?

Yes ... that was the first thing I was told. And believe me I did it LOL The nightmares aren't as bad since then but they are still happening.

I just got off the phone and was told to drop down to the lower level and see if that helps ... maybe the dosage is too much. So that's what I will do beginning tomorrow.

Meanwhile .. I am smoke free and finding it a bit of a relief .. so yayyy on that !!

we're with you, mrslmb, we are behind your smokeless mission!! hopefully, you might be able to leave the patch off at nighttime. but even if this isn't advised, know that you are gaining many years of active and productive life by stopping smoking. right now, it's all over the news: the sooner you quit smoking, the quicker your body will respond, and begin to reverse damages from smoking....you can do it!

That is one of the side effects. The Chantix gives you weird dreams. I once dreamt that I gave my baby to a kangaroo to babysit because she had a pouch and could run her errands with the baby if necessary. Another one was I was making beach sand bricks so they could use them in Haiti to build houses and roads. Everyone I know who uses an aide to stop smoking, has some strange dreams.

Good for you! Hang in there, MrsLMB! One of these days I need to get there too....

Did a bunch of yardwork yesterday. Today I felt a tiny lump on the side of my neck, a tick! Tracked down the school nurse and she dug it out, the little sucker was deeply embedded, and the site's pretty sore and angry-looking. We dug one out of DH last week, and beagle had one yesterday. Of course, first thing I did was research Lyme Disease. I think I'm OK, the tick wasn't engorged.

I don't suppose you could cut that hole out...

Sorry, been burnt before and I know it hurts! Keep it covered!

Liquid bandage is made for ticks... if you put it on them they back out on their own because they can't breathe...no digging! Vaseline works, too!
