Beware the Ides of March!

Thanks for coming to my pity party yesterday.  I appreciate all your suggestions and thoughts.  I am going to run the roof repair through my insurance company.  I am hoping they'll give me enough money to replace the roofing on that entire half of the house and my plan is to do the work myself.  I do have some reservations about this because I have only been on that part of my roof once and it was terrifying to me to be so high up.  I actually couldn't even get off the ladder.  I've also never done an entire project like that myself.  When I worked for my dad as a teenager, I'd do things like "feed" him the shingles that he'd nail down so he could stay in one spot while I schlepped the shingles over to him.  Any time I placed and nailed the shingles myself, I never did the areas around vents and the ridge cap so I'll have to figure that out, but I think it will all come back to me.

Anyways...despite my un-fill, my restriction has been pretty good.  I fill up pretty quickly, just like before the un-fill.  I was fairly hungry on Thursday last week, but I haven't been hungry since.  My fill doc said she'd do a re-fill for me for $50 (instead of the normal $180) if I went back within 30 days of the un-fill so I'm going to have to decide if I need more or not.



Also you'll notice that I turned off my CAPTCHA for commenting.  As long as you guys promise not to leave me a bunch of spam, I'll leave it off because I hate those stupid things.

You are a better woman than I. No way I'd get on my roof. Too scary.

Leslie said...

You are brave brave brave for getting on your roof. No way could I do that.

"Were." You meant you "Were" bigger on the bottom. Cuz...you're lookin' smokin' amazin' these days, kiddo. :)

So brave! I wouldn't get up on my roof either. I'm sure it'll come back to you. I turned off my word verification too...so far...spam free.

I went to the doc and he prescribed some meds for GERD but I think its time for a small unfill...i know it sounds crazy but I am losing weight too fast and nothing is staying down! thanks for your advice!

Shannon said...

that would be an awesome discount on the fill!

Kristin said...

Be careful on the roof, girl. Really, really careful. Wear a helmet. And maybe swathe yourself in bubble wrap.

I got on mine a while back (after losing a bunch of this weight). It is a little bit less scary and you feel a lot more sure-footed up there. Be careful though!! and take it easy. I went up on mine to fix shingles just like you. I failed in the end because the part that needed it was just too steep to crawl over to. The guy I finally hired fixed it for $50 bucks and did it by strategic ladder positioning. I hope yours is fairly easy to reach.

I am so glad you are still OK with your restriction. I am crazily thinking about more fill...it is just the darned reflux that scares me.

xxxooo

Good luck with the roof.
I can't believe it costs so much for a fill... it only costs $10 through my doctor. I don't understand how they can justify the difference!

You get on your ROOF??? My! I am sooo impressed with YOU! I would be terrified with just the thought of climbing up there - whoa nellie, I am just so impressed!

You're so positive! I love the way you have picked yourself up, dusted yourself off, and come up with a plan. I have my fingers crossed that this will work out for you.

Amanda said...

Lord! Be careful! I'm with Lisa - I'm impressed as I couldn't do it! Good luck!

Ronnie said...

I know you can do it! If I was closer I'd come help you. :)

Rachel said...
