Hi Mr Gator. Had a good RCIA class last night. Everyone was glad to get back. We did a tour of the church that was very interesting. Many things I did not know about the alter and how the sacrament is handled. We are starting our work on penance now and how to examine our conscience and getting ready for our confessions.
Hope you are feeling better. I am still praying for a whole lot of people on the board now. Your friend Pauly
Can't thank you enough for your welcome. I need to put a different photo on the site as this one is about seventy years earlier. I feel confident that I am going to feel the support that I am sorely missing at this stage of my life. I'm not sure if the comments I made about myself when I joined are showing anywhere but if not please let me know and I will expand on my diabetic and other illnesses. There is a lot here I must explore.
Reed, I'm watching the national news and they are talking about that town n Alaska where they have 18 feet of snow! Unbelievable. We got a light dusting today but now the temp is close to zero windchill. I walked to a farer grocery store and when I got home my fingers were just burning from being too cold. They really hurt as they warmed up but are okay now. It will be the same tomorrow so I'll be sure to wear my mittens that are lined with sheepfur.
I was out of diet soda so had to take my backpack on wheels to bring home a 12 pack of Coke Zero. When Trevor comes in a couple of weeks he will take me to stock up.l He can carry 4 12-packs at once. Big strong boy.
I must say that yest and today were the first cays that I felt completely well. But then I didn't fall asleep until 4:30 am and was almost late to D. LOL.
Hello Reed !!! Today so far is a good day. Yesterday was too, so I have taken advantage and started dismantling Christmas decorations. We also honor the Russian Christmas (Jan 7th) since that is part of my heritage. So our stuff is always up at least till then. Keith got boxes down from the attic for me and I have been slowly packing. Had a dental cleaning this morning. Have a support group meeting tonight at the hospital with the Bariatric team and recovering and soon to be patients. Pete coming home this weekend. Hope the weather stays good so he can take the outdoor lights down. Kevin's wife Jen who is a manager for a Target store has been offered a big promotion to manage logistics for 50 Target stores. No more weekends and holidays BUT ....... the head office for the region is outside of BOSTON !!!!! My Samantha will be far away = ( She is supposed to have a big meeting to discuss a package and moving allowance. They would have to sell their home.And Kevin would have to quit his job = ( I guess we'll see what happens. My BS remain all normal ---114 today. Guess the surgery was worth it. Especially with no meds. Just sent flowers to Germany. Joe's Aunt Maria had a stroke Christmas Eve and just passed away Monday. Been really busy here. Had Samantha for the weekend. Glad your feeling better finally. In the 40's here. Take care <3 <3 Joanne
Dear Gator, Congratulations on your award, you totally deserved it. All of my grandparents are gone so like Manny said, we are related and I appreciate you like a grandfather. I do not need help with diab but so many here do and you do a great job with them. Keep up the great work, stay healthy, eat healthy, and above all, take care of yourself as best you can.
Thank you Mr Gator. Like I said I"m new to the pum and when I stumbled on this site the more I read the more I liked. The people seem so caring and helpful and that's what this country needs. So thank you all so very much. I hope i'm not a nuisance because I will be asking questions haha.
Good Morning Mr Gator. Hope you are doing better and over your bug. Have religion class tonight with my teacher. The priest is going to talk to us I think tonight.
We are supposed to get some snow showers today and colder so back to winter. Yesterday it was 56 almost summer which is unheard of. I have not experinced a winter this warm before. Kathy can attest to that too. Pauly
hi Reed, just stopping by for a quick hi. bg 104 darn it, I hope I don't go any lower because we're going to get our blood draw this morning. I've lowered my basal to 30 % I was 112 at 5 so I guess no dawn phenom for me today. glad to hear you're feeling better. hugs.
Hi Reed. That's a bummer about your med costs going up. I think we may have set a record here today with the temp in the high 40's. I was getting hot and sweaty outside and had to stuff my muffler & gloves in my purse and unzip my jacket.
Walked a lot and got a ton of cleaning done. My sis from up north is coming this weekend so I have to be all tidied up for company.Feels good.
Glad to hear that Russ is feelling wellenough to work outside.
Glad you are feeling better!! My cold is finally getting a bit better, 2 weeks for me. Sunny here today and I am itchin' to plant some flowers. My granddaughter was just what I needed...so sweet and she painted my toenails red for me and did a great job!! We made brownies and went shopping. Watched TV and laid in bed and talked.......love it!! Thank you for the well wishes and the support, you are just awesome!! xo
Hi Reed, I am so glad that things are getting better at your house with the flu. It probably did Russ some good to get out in the garden. I am getting ready to catch some zzz's now. Have to be up bright and early tomorrow. It finally snowed yesterday. It was pretty. The snow hung in the trees and the air was white with fog this morning, very nice but it disappeared after the sun came out. Rain tomorrow. I looked up pole walking on the Web, that looks like fun. How much do those cost? You will have to let me know. I first thought you meant pole dancing, with all those ladies, you never know! Already hump day tomorrow, this week is going by fast. Soon it will be Friday and I finish up my cleaning spree. Tonight I had Tofu and veggy stir fry. It was so delicious. I wish I could stay up late, but I won't be happy tomorrow if I do. Enjoy the pole walking tomorrow!
I guess Florida is not a hotbed of early American antiques. I guess ed's being a good boy today. he was home when my mom called and he helped her out with a question she had. I should probably put my coat on and take a walk. I missed yesterday and the weather is supposed to turn tomorrow. must get our blood draw tomorrow too, fasting.
hi Reed, yes, it was nice to sit out with the other 99 members. just before the meeting began, a new person wandered in, she had heard about us on the Internet, and didn't know a soul. I asked her to take the seat next to me, and she was in awe of the energy, talent, range of activities, the sheer joy that is our guild. I'm kinda filling in for the Service Projects chair right now, so I feel like I have a lot on my plate. Ed will kill me if he sees me bring more fabric in the house, so the donations we got today for service I left in my car. haha, I better put them in the trunk. I had a real bad site this morning where I had my infusion set, so I changed out and by the time I got to guild was in range. didn't go out to lunch with my friends, just ate carrot stick, celery & cheese. Ed's got the nasties, he must be related to Russ. I'm looking at your pictures there, behind your Christmas tree on the wall, is that an old embroidered sampler on the wall over a little desk? I love stuff like that.
Yeah I got them in on Saturday. Like I told Marie I went to the Bone & Joint Clinic today b/c my left shoulder had been bothering me to the point of not being able to sleep (PAIN) for almost a year now. I didn't say anything about it b/c of all the pain & stuff K was going through so now I get to get an MRI done on it next week. They done some xrays on it today and told me what I already knew but don't take anything for it. I got some bad aritius in my shoulder make that probably both of them. I had surgery done on my right shouklder about 6 years ago and the odds are I'm looking at more now for the left one, I'm sure u've heard about the "frozen shoulder' b/f and that is the way it's doing now on the other side. Having myself a pity party right now.
Ahhh Reed....not feeling better at all today. Went to the doc, and the asthma flare and slight cold of last Friday has progressed to pneumonia. So, I'm on a course of antibiotics with the asthma meds, and off work 'till Thursday. (snivel!)
I am glad the Blessed Mother and is listening to me. I have been doing alot of reading on the Blessed Mother and how her prayers can help everyone. Sorry to hear about your cooling and heating system but your right that goes with a house. I am off now to the foot doctor this morning for my 6 month check. My wake up this morning was 105 and a little higher.
