It doesn't just happen at night and it is full blown charlie horses but 10 x's worse than the normal. You can not rub these out. I am on medication, which I have never liked doing. But had no other option only thing that is even remotely working. But, even on the meds I still have episodes not quite as bad as when I fist had to go to the dr about it. But, I can't work, I kind of get depressed about it, I have always worked, been able to just come and go as I please with my kids. Now if I go anywhere I have to be careful, I can't ride as a passenger, cause after 5 minutes the cramps come. I can't go further than 4 hours driving sometimes less. I can't be at all my childrens sports activities cause cold is the biggest thing to set it off. Everything else that sets it off we don't know yet. I am trying to get disability because I have tried working and it just wasn't working. So, that is it. That and being so broke all the time. What fashion item or style do you like, but never wear?I have no idea really. 12/6 What Winter Holiday do celebrate? I celebrate Christmas. It is my favorite time of the year.

Hot cider is always very nice! Would my potential Witchee be up for some music stuff they'd never heard before if they couldn't understand the words?Sure! 12/5 What kind of candy/sweet treat would you like to receive?I love chocolate and caramel. I really like those red, white and green chewable candies that come out this time of year that have the tree in the center. Would you personally rather get handmade jewelry or the beads to make something yourself?handmade jewelry 12/4 Speaking of which, how many Browncoat witches do we have?? And if you are, would you be interested in getting a Kaylee parasol? If not, would you be interested in getting a paper parasol hand painted with your favorite colors?I am not sure what this is but I probably wouldn't use a parasol. Is there any time during the holidays (or the rest of the round) when you'll be away from home for a significant period and it'd be best not to send anything by mail?I will be gone December 12th-14th and December 19th-21st To make up for the fact that I probably won't be able to send my witchee homebaked goodies, will Tim Tams in any number of varieties be an acceptable replacement?They sound really really good! Hand beaded jewellery, yay or nay?Sure Which witches would like hair accessories: clips, scrunchies, hairsticks, headscarves, etc?I use small scrunchies to pull my sides and bangs out of my face when I was it.

As in, for holidays other than Christmas?Sounds really cool! Question: who would like a pair of handknit socks? Size? Color preference? Cabled, ribbed (for your pleasure), stranded colorwork, etc.?That would be awesome, size 9, any color, I like really soft socks. How does everyone feel about steampunk?meh Since we're talking about warm winter wearables, who likes hats? Mittens? Arm warmers?I like hats, more of a glove person, never tried arm warmers before.

    Pumpkin Cheesecake

    Upon the first smell from the bottle: A slight hint of pumpkin with a little spice. The pumpkin is not overbearing at all. (to me) Initially when wet it smells like spiced eggnog. I also smell a little bit of pumpkin with a hint of caramel. On the dry down- it reminds me of sugar cookies with a little bit of spice. After having it on all day(about 10hours) it smells like vanilla pudding. I have to say I love love love this scent. It is strong enough to smell but not too overpowering-it does have a soft side to it but not so soft you can't smell it. Cause even after having it on for 10 hours I could still smell it!

    Gourmand - Foody Scents - General Recommendations

    I have read through this whole thread and just wanted to tell you how exciting it is to read all the different reviews of the scents. I have a much larger list of notes of oils to try now. Candy Butcher on me goes completely vanilla in which I love it! bliss is just that complete bliss of pure chocolate! Boomslang -on reminded me of hot cocoa. Grog in the bottle is pure butterscotch to me and once on had a nice brown sugar/cinnamon to it.
