|Sign on our door... (pink sign on red door)|
Found this Easter sign today at Joann's... and thought it might be a good replacement for our Merry Christmas sign.

And finally... a Red bud tree blooming in the back of the house! This is our first sign of spring around here. But I have seen a few daffodils and hyacinths popping up around the neighborhood.
I have a question for anyone out there. Do any of you find it difficult to swallow large pills? And I don't necessarily mean overly large... It's not a terribly big problem since I don't take any pills at all except for a Tylenol x-strength caplet when necessary (and I take this with buttermilk to help it slide down). But I also don't take any vitamin supplements... not even calcium.
My family physician isn't too disturbed about this. However, he did request that I take Vitamin D3 since my blood tests show me quite low. And recently my Eye Doctor recommended I take a multiple vitamin for eye health. Most are too large, don't like the chewable (too much sugar and I'm sensitive to any sugar substitutes), and am generally leery about supplements.
I eat well enough... no canned foods, mostly fresh, and don't have a weight problem. But I just found that One a Day for women makes a One a Day petite for people who have trouble swallowing pills. Apparently it's not in the stores and has to be ordered online through Walgreen's or a Vitamin store. I ordered it through Walgreen's and it will be delivered to the store for pickup in a few days.
Just wondered if any of you have any comment on this. I'm ordering it blind since I know of no one who uses it and don't know how 'petite' it is. You are supposed to take 2 a day, not one... but that's fine with me. 'One a Day' is a brand name that's been around for a while.
Also I was going through pictures for my youngest son who apparently needs a baby pic or two for some presentation he has to make. I found these pics of our 3 when they were young.

Now they are all in their 40's... how time flies!
Have a great rest of the week! And if you have any comments on vitamin supplements size and value, I'd certainly appreciate hearing them.
