Hi Reed. I went to the movie "Lincoln" and it was pretty good. Over two hours. Still running a low grade fever, but at least it's down. Made myself a super of oatmeal with a big squishy ripe banana cut into it and it was ever so tasty. Some oatmeal, specially the ones where you can get the individual serving packets, have a ton of salt in it but the big old barrel container does not. About 30 degrees here so we had some melting. I still have no idea what day it is. Target was loaded with Vanentines and candy. Give me a break.
Hi Reed, Are you feeling any better today? How is Russ doing? I hope you two are doing okay. Yesterday was a bust for me. I was tired Saturday so Sunday was planning to do something interesting. I woke up with a stomach ache, then bad BGs, then sore muscles. Maybe I caught some kind of bug. I gave up, took a pain pill and it knocked me out all day. This morning I woke up feeling fine. I went to work and caught everything up on the computer. My eyes are crossed. I did numbers all day with no breaks, just to get it done, and I did, so yay. When we got home we got out of the car and decided to take a walk right away before we even went inside. I am starting my New Year's resolution to exercise every day a week late. Oh well, better late than never and at least it is done for today. I hope you guys are doing okay. I am going to relax tonight. No snow yet for us. I am still hoping. Lots.
Hi Mr Gator, I am sorry about Russ wandering around. Maybe he will sleep tonight. I have Bible Study tonight as we again start back after the new year now. Weather warm today. Wake up was 79BG. arthritis giving me fits in my shoulder again today. Pain pills help though.
Hi Reed. It was on the news that there is now expected to be a massive nationwide flu epidemic, based on cases already seen. And I think I am getting over it. My temp is slowly coming down. 15 degrees here today and sunny. Felt pretty good. I found another missing pair of earrings.
I don't really have much planned for the week. I really should wash my comforter, which needs to be done at a laundromat with the bigger machines. I will have to carry it in a large garbage bag, which is doable because it doesn't weigh that much - just bulky.
Hope you have a good week ahead and that Russ continues to heal well.
Dear Reed....thank you SO MUCH for continually praying for us all. I am SO RELIEVED that all is well with Russ! I too pray....however we have no votive candles in our church! I think it's the case with most newer churches! Little Christmas....never heard of Mother Goodie!! nice tradition to uphold though. French tradition is a little different. Epiphany (La Fête des Rois) is of course celebrated...but with a type of cake in which is hidden a specific small object or a pea. The child/person to discover the object is declare king or queen, wears a crown and has special status for the rest of the day :)
I have lost quite a few, at times very lengthy, messages in cyber space! So MADDENING! Pays to save as you go along....but I very seldom do!! Wonder where all those messages go? Do they get trapped someplace? I mean...they DID exist!! Will someone, or an alien life form, discover them floating onto their futuristic screen 2 thousand or more years from now, wondering out loud to whomever about "What the heck is Tudiabetes? I hope the query will more run along the lines of..."Diabetes?? Isn't that the illness that was eradicated nearly 2,000 years ago?" luv ya....linda!
Hi Reed. Russ must be feelin ok if he has the focus and energy to bag up the tree branches. Yesterday as I was out and about I kept have these surges of gratitude. They would just wash over me at odd times. It was wonderful in every way. I had a lot planned for today - movies, lunch out, but woke up feeling off and with a nonstop productive cough. My temp was elevated, so I thought the wisest thing to do was stay home and take care of myself. Put my head down on the couch at 1 pm and did not wake until 6!!! It was one of those rock solid sleeps that leave you disoriented when you wake up. So now I expect I'll be up all night, but what is, is.
Have a great Sunday.
Hi Reed- Glad Russ' procedure is over, hope it turned out successfully. Sorry you caught Russ' cold. Look out for the flu, the media says it is going to be a bad year for the flu. I am sure you got your flu shot as did we. Jim got the word from the surgeon that he saw the other day. NO surgery necessary ! He just has to wear a compression stocking for 6 months and continue with the coumadin for that time. We were relieved to hear that. My BG have been OK most of the time. It has been quite cold this past week, but it is supposed to warm up next week. Get Chico to snuggle with you, it will always help you to feel better. Take care. Cat
hi reed, fairly cold here too, a neighbor just called and said look out the window, there's a fox walking down the lake. don't see that every day. My sister is coming over today, she's bringing some of mom's stuff. I guess she's spending the weekend at their Poconos place.
we had to cut the live interview on the chat short yesterday because of technical difficulties. The young man was very good, we'll get him back. Hard to believe at 18 he's a NASCAR driver/racer. He said he would be glad to talk to other teens here, which is great, so that's why you will see him featured. We have had some new teens here recently and I want them to feel like they feel right at home here as well as those of us who are here all the time.
bgs just terrible. woke up at 6 and was 162, so I took a bolus and then by 715 it was 180 something. SIGH. I'm frustrated by the volatility.
Hugs back Reed. The cold symptoms Jon had last night, don't seem bad today. He came home in a great mood, but will go down fast as evening wears on. Waiting for dinner, our daughter is off cooking it, but she doesn't usually have it ready and waiting for her Dad when she gets home. She was an ADD kid, and that stuff you don't grow out of, goes on when the kids grow up.
Hi Reed, I read that you caught the cold Russ had. My son is sick too. He has been coughing for a week. Chris took him over to the doctor today because he felt too sick to drive. He got a throat culture and almost threw up on the doctor! He got some expectorant and some antibiotics and a referral to the allergist. He does a lot better when he takes weekly allergy shots, especially now that we have the cat. He must be pretty sick as this is the first Friday night I have ever seen him stay home, usually out with friends. It feels so funny, no work today, instead we had our Holiday party, what fun. We ate delicious food, they had so many good things to eat and all of it healthy, we are all nutrition freaks. Everyone is very health minded on our team. We had a short meeting about work and then had the White Elepant gift exchange. I ended up with a remote control tarantula. It is so funny, big and hairy. The cat is playing with it now in the bathroom. It was so fun to see everyone. We all work at different sites so it is nice to get together. Now it feels so neat to have two days off. We still have our Christmas decorations up. I can't bring myself to take them down. I have a lot of things with lights and it looks so pretty at night. I don't think it will snow. It is 40 degrees and was sunny, very mild. I might take a walk it is so nice out. How did the operation go? I hope that Russ heals up nicely. Did they give him antibiotics or anything? I hope he is not in pain. My toe is all better the antibiotics fixed it up like new. Oh, yeah, my boss gave us all gifts too. I got the prettiest pair of black gloves.They are made so you can wear them and use your smart phone at the same time. They are really neat. I hope you feel better soon. Lots
Hi Mr Gator. I am happy Russ has it behind him now. I bet you are too. Went to adoration chapel this morning and prayed for you and Russ and other TU members. Bright Sunny day today. Warmer, 34 today so it is melting a little. Cleaning my bathroom today. Hope you dont get a cold.
reed, did they tell Russ to use peroxide? I think that's how I ruined my hand when I damaged it, I kept putting peroxide on it and that kills good skin along with the germs. now I think I have permanent scar tissue and sometimes it bothers me a lot.
This afternoon we are having our chat with an 18 year old nascar driver with type 1. should be quite lively, i hope. emily works very hard getting us interesting speakers for these friday afternoon chats. I really enjoy them, and sometimes it gets to be like a party. bg 204 dang it. i will go for a walk later and bring that right down.
