When you cook potatoes with meat do carbs leech into the meat?

Thanks, Karen: It's just that I am having such a bunch of trials that I am at the end of my rope. It is said that He never gives you anything you can't handle .,.... well ..... I must have one heck of a set of shoulders to bear all this weight. My fingers are slipping on the branch that I'm hanging onto above the fire pit!!!

You mean your horse doesn't know the way by itself? Doesn't everyone in Nevada wear a Stetson and ride a horse? We don't keep our Wild West image for nuthin', ya know!!! :-)
My BGs are still a little higher than I'd like them to be, but what I need to do is get out and exercise more than my once-a-week folk dancing. I know people who LOVE to exercise, but I'm not one of them! :-(

At least I know how to get to Winnemucca (fall asleep on I-80):-)
The thin cats are Oriental Shorthairs and Siamese. I think they're a beautiful breed! :-) All the cats on the pictures are cats I've had or still have. I'm only missing 2 which I had before I got my handy dandy computerphilic camera.
As far as the A1c of 10.7 -- I had a bad problem during 2010 with rising BGs that I couldn't control no matter how much insulin I took, and I ended up in a coma. My (former) endo didn't recognize that for me, it was a life-threateningly high A1c -- I never had one over 7 before in 19 years. I expect my next one to be back in the 6's, now that I have a new endo who actually knows how to use a pump (he's Type 1 himself). Neither he nor I know why I was suddenly having such severe insulin-resistance, but it seems to be gone now, whatever caused it. I'm back down to reasonably normal levels of insulin, and good BGs.

I guess things are not going to good for me. I have been trying like heck to get out of this hellhole of a nursing home! I hate it here. I hate the small room; I hate the lazy aides; I hate the food; I hate the rules and regulations! Pray for me! I can't seem to do it. My beliefs in a higher power and getting weaker and weaker. I just can't believe that a good God can allow all this horrible stuff to happen to me!!

Feeling a little negative. Guess I had better close off so I don't pull anyone else in my "downer" mood.

Only in Nevada could we be called close! :-) It always amuses me when friends from the east call me and say "I'm going to be in Las Vegas -- why don't we get together for lunch?"
So what are you doing in Winnemucca -- the REAL Nevada??? :-)

Did you know that Danny is in Las Vegas? That makes 3 Nevadans that I know of! :-)

Hi Knorris! Things are doing better, now, thank God. I quit the Salvation Army, and I now work for Target, overnights. The hours are not ideal, but they have two half hour breaks for employees, and I get to do what I need to do to care for myself, and that's great. I also got the Salvation Army to send me my last check by certified mail so I wasn't forced to have to travel 40 miles out to their main center, for their own personal whims, since I don't have a car. For now, I am only a seasonal employee, but it is likely that I might stay on board permanently when the store remodel is finished. Target offers full benefits to employees, so that would be a very nice perk to have. :) Thanks so much for your concern and for checking in on me. :) You guys were all an important support for me when I was going through that trauma.
