Here are a few things that are M.I.A in my life right now:

DVD Remote:
It went missing a few weeks ago, and I have yet to see it since. My best guess of what happened to it is that Bree took it and either placed it in some obscure hiding place, or tossed it in the garbage can without us knowing. I hope that it is hiding in some random place, but if by some chance it got placed in the garbage, it's probably lying in a land fill somewhere now. I've never been able to figure out how to sync a universal remote with a DVD player, so until we find the real remote or I buy a universal one...I'll just have to settle with pushing buttons on the DVD player.

My Computer:
Well, it's not M.I.A yet, but it will be soon. Evidently we got the model of the MacBook whose battery is flawed. It can only be disconnected from the charger for 15 minutes before it cuts off. Not normal. Also, it won't burn c.d's. Also, not normal. So, we have to take it to the Mac place in downtown. I'll be without computer or internet for nearly a week. Not cool, and I'm not too sure how I will be able to cope.

Evidently coffee makes my hands swell. I'm not sure if it's the coffee, the creamer, or the sugar that I put into my coffee, but I have to figure out which one it is. I'm not sure how it could be the creamer, because it has nothing in it but potassium and some carbs. Sugar? It's never made me swell before. I'll have a hard time giving up coffee, but I definitely have to cut back. 8 cups a day isn't working.

So, that's just a few of the things that are going M.I.A in my life.

Hmmm, I can not do anything about your remote (DVD) or your computer, but the coffee I know something about. How much water to you drink every day? 6 or 8 glasses should do it. If you are drinking 8 Cups of coffee ( which means, 14-16 real "cups" of coffee )you should have 8 glasses of H2O. I know, I have done this before. Try that and see how it works. Try giving it 3 or 4 days. Yes you shall be pissing like a race horse.

Water is the only thing I drink besides coffee. Tea makes me swell as well, so I had to stop drinking it. But I was probably drinking more coffee than water, and that makes sense now! Yesterday I had less than a cup of coffee, and I didn't swell at all! Thanks for pointing that out to me! I never thought of that!
