Don’t eat at RODRIGOS

image

They discriminate against people with Life threatening food allergies.

We have been eating there for 15 years. Waaaay back to when they were called Don Jose. And my children were 2 and 4 years old. And have ALWAYS brought in food for kids.

Well tonight we were asked to leave. Oh I did after I gave them a ear full. And my husband vented.

I will NEVER eat there again.

I can’t say what I want to. Because I’m a better person than that. But I will give you a clean version. SCREW YOU RODRIGOS!!

Oh!! And everyone I know will soon know you discriminate against people with special needs/ food allergy children!!

Ok breathe… The children are fed. Now to figure out what my hubby and I will eat.

Bandaid please!

So I left school today after work with woodchips  stuck in the bottom of my shoes not just one shoe, both shoes. And it went all the way through the shoe pokeing on my foot. So when I came home I got out pliers and a screwdriver.. clearly not thinking straight because what did I need a screwdriver for? Anyways I took the pliers and the screwdriver and was prying on my bottom of my shoe trying to take out the wood chips. I quickly found out pliers were not going to help so I then took the screwdriver and attempted to pry a woodchip out of  the bottom of my shoe thinking that if I could get it out just a little bit I could grab it with the pliers.  Well I’m pretty sure you know where the story ends, it ends with a screwdriver slipping and stabbing my other hand…

Our Easter trip to Arizona

Was an awesome trip. We loved what we saw. We are going back this summer for a week to pick neighborhoods were interested in living in.
image

People are sooooo much calmer there than here in Cali. It was amazing. All my families aliments were gone as they usually are when we visit desert climates.

Took Greg the egg with us as we were there on Easter.

One of my sons was on a trip with school to DC, New York, Philly. So it was a perfect time for us to go. I hate being home on holidays if all of the kids aren’t here.

Pup did great on the 6 hour trip. And in a hotel. It was her first time in a hotel. We usually travel with our RV. But she’s great in a hotel. Which was awesome. Seeing as our RV is up for sale! WOOT!! Just another part of our journey to own a home.

Nivea really limits their consumer base

I mean most if not all of their products have some type of nut oil in them. Seriously! Read the label.

We have life threatening food allergies to nuts in this house. Nivea has awesome looking new lip balms out. With Almond oil in them.

I used my moms lotion one time a few years back without even thinking. I mean who would think nut oils are in a lotion?!

Well my son started wheezing and saying he didn’t feel well. Then it dawned on me. I used a lotion I never had before.

I ran to car got his asthma inhaler and epi pens then returned to lotion and read label, and that is when I saw ALMOND OIL in the list.

I washed and scrubbed my hands till they were red. Then I washed my sons face, he had red hand prints on cheeks from where I had touched him with my freshly lotioned hands.

I then gave him benedryl and called his allergist who said continue benedryl for 4 days every 4 hours.

I felt and still do feel horrible that I just used the lotion with no thought to read the label. LESSON LEARNED!

I steer clear from their products and so does my Mom.

Arizona health facts I’ve researched

I’ve been busy researching facts again. This time for Arizona.

On average it shows you will live a tiny bit longer if you live in Arizona
Male AZ 77.4 yrs
Male US 76.0 yrs
Female AZ 82.6 yrs
Female US 81.2 yes

Cancer rates are lower in AZ . Their the lowest in the US. However survival rate of cancer is low due to late diagnosis. And that is due to people not going in for screenings when they should.

Number of cancer deaths per 100,000 population by race/ethnicity/sex
2009
White –
AZ 156.2
US 177.2
Black
AZ 166.0
US 211.3
Male
AZ 408.5
US 532.6
Female
AZ 356.2
US 412.9

Asthma and allergy prevalence is in the lower end in Arizona compared to other parts of the US.

Physical activity participation is higher in AZ than most areas of the US which I would contribute to the awesome weather.

Arizona has some of the highest skin cancer rates in the US. That is due to sunny weather and people not using sunscreen.

Diabetes is held at bay a bit in Arizona. Their average is lower then most.

Arthritis in general it is believed the warmer the climate the less the symptoms. It is true a hot, dry climate makes arthritics feel better. It WILL NOT cure your arthritis. You will still have symptoms. Just not as often as someone who lives in let’s say Ohio.

Arthritis rates in Arizona are fairly high due to people heading to warmer climate to relieve symptoms.

Adults with arthritis 30%

All and all Arizona looks like a healthy choice.

With an average of 211 sunny days a year in the greater Phoenix area, 102 partly sunny days for a total of 264 good weather days a year its a good place to live.

They have air quality issues there as most states do. They appear to be a little better than California.
