Start of an extended weekend..going to CA tomorrow--hoping for good weather- Got all but the last minute stuff packed and ready to go. The cats are mad and the dog is pouting (yes she really pouts). Gas in the truck...load and leave in the am--with a stop at starbucks first of course :-)

Hoping to be able to join in some D day activities--depends on how the trip goes--weather and construction can make it much longer than 4 hours....add a little shopping and --well you know how it… Continue

making a packing list for a short trip--lists not so short

Geesh--So much stuff to take just to take care of the D and the D in case ofs....add asthma and other meds--and man o man--

At least this trip is a driving no need to skimp or try to cram into 1 bag to minimize extra charges..and no security checks--maybe a stop at the NV/CA border so we can declare we are not bringing any fruit into CA--well get that at whole foods after we get there..

Wether forecast is till for a chance of snow--we'll just keep hoping that… Continue

Numbers--my love is not always my love anymore

my bg numbers make me crazy...

there is no logical (or illogical) algorythym that makes any… Continue

Some days are just, well, *OFF*

Posted on November 10, 2009 at 10:48pm 0 Comments

It was not a bad day--it was just an *off* day. BG not bad, set and sensor change day--that went well, but I just feel off. maybe its the pending storm, maybe all of the firsplace smoke that is laying in the valley due to a slight inversion from said storm...

Got a lot accompished at work, went and got the hearing aids adjusted a bit, but still....

Checking off the to-do's for this weekends trip..really looking forward to, not the being away from home--but the daughters… Continue
