ok not starting out so good today. the cat ate one of my Poblano pepper seedlings, (I started from seed 6 weeks ago, you can't buy them as plants around here) then threw up. ed got shot down on the Baltimore job, which was the more likely of the 2 for getting an interview. bg 144, so ok there. more later.

Hi Reed - I can home today and my computer was not working. I was mad as a hornet!! But then I calmly unplugged everything and replugged them. Then my modem made a loud hissing noise, but everything started up!!
I read on Lots page that you got an arrangement of orchids from an old student. How lovely. They will last a long time I love orchids.
Yes it was fun to talk to you yesterday. I think your New England accent is adorable.

Hi Reed glad you enjoyed your birthday and how lovely to hear from all those students from way back. Shows what a good Lecturer you were. I am doing quite well at the moment and got my blood results for the Poly on Monday. The doc said it was fine to lower the Pred so now on 12mg. He also said to have my next bloods done in 4 weeks and whilst waiting for the results to alternate between 12 and 11mg then if bloods ok I should be fine dropping down to 11mg without any flare ups. So feeling pretty positive about things at the minute. Not too bad with the hypos either at present. Nick went back to the docs today and is being referred to a Rheumy as still having trouble with the shoulder so he's waiting for an appointment now. Hopefully they will be able to sort things for him but will let you know. Take good care Reed. Tricia x

oh Reed, I've got sparky on my mind today, just praying for his comfort and ease. that company I told you about is in Chelsea, not Chatham. big difference I know.

hello gator, sorry you didn't have a good night. it ruins my entire day if I don't get enough sleep. lucky for me, I slept almost 9 hours, and woke up at 6:30 with a bg of 83 that stayed at 83 when I tested before breakfast. so maybe today is my lucky day. I will be doing some more baking today. it seems the vendor we had arranged to bring sandwiches, etc to the quilt show has bugged out on us. we already were going to be selling cookies and muffins on our own "bake sale" table, so now I think we should make even more. I'm thinking people might buy a slice of homemade sourdough bread with a little individually wrapped piece of cheese. we have to mind the local health board rules. I'm also making something new, red velvet cookies.

anyway, keep up the prayers. hugs, my friend!

Yep today is my last day of PT and it's been soooooooo awaited! LOL! K is doing ok. I think it has helpped now I can put on my t-shirt without too much whining (couldn't do that for awhie LOL) I also couldn't wash my hair b/c my shoulder wouldn't let my arm reach up to my head for a few (quite a few) months there. Still have trouble reaching behind myself. But that's life huh?? If ur summer (it's already here too) is ANYTHING like our summer u will most definatly need that A/C WE've already turned ours on about a week ago IT'S SOOOOOOO HOT!!

I worked on one of my computers all day Mr Gator with no luck. I may have to buy a new one I think. It needs more memory and the cost of that is not worth the upgrade. glad you had a nice birthday. I pray many more to come. Wish all of you the best in the Gator house.

I did see what Manny said, what a nice thing to say. a Wedgewood tea set? what's the pattern? I have my mother's Wedgewood china, I forget the name, but it has a teal border and a small fruit arrangement in the center. I don't think they make that pattern any more. is it a teapot and creamer & sugar? oh reed, so good you were given a flurry of attention on your birthday, you deserve it for all you do.

At 3:36am on May 16, 2012, Marie B said…

glad you got the rain! up early today, lots to do. tell us about the birthday, did you have some cake, and did it spike your bg? that's wonderful all your students keep in touch, wow, 3 flower arrangements, wonderful. bg 115 but my infusions set hurts. I think 3 days is one day too long, but I didn't have time to change it yesterday.

Happy Birthday Mr Gator. Are you going to celebrate in the Gator house? You should. Its a special day.

I went to mass today and worked on paperwork. Tomorrow I think I will get my spring flowers. Wakeup BG was 71 this morning.

oh Reed, I have several items of good news to share. First, please, whatever you are doing in the prayer department towards ed getting a job, please KEEP DOING IT - sorry to shout - but today another headhunter contacted ed for a VP of Sales job. they are going to pitch him to the company tomorrow! it's in Baltimore. so that's 2 in one week. I know in my heart your thoughts and prayers have something to do with it.

second, I'm so proud of my quilting guild. we are going to have the best show this weekend. the quilts today were just amazing!!!! so many beautiful ones. and guess what won BEST IN SHOW? you're right, our amazing raffle quilt. we have professional certified judges who do not know who made what. one of the judges said afterwards that she had never in her life seen a guild raffle quilt of such quality. you know it was made while I was president, so I was in tears of joy. I can't wait to see it in the place of honor at the show. of course I hope to win it, and if I don't, I hope someone I know does (like you).

now I see Pete is back. what a great day, and your birthday, hugs and more hugs from your pal. oh, and bgs been good today!

Happy birthday, Reed. Looks like I picked the right day to come back. Many happy wishes for the day.

Look at all this LOVE, Reed!!! How fantastic. I hope you're feeling good on your big day :)

Hugs and hugs and hugs to you.

We got some rain on Mother's Day (infact that whole weekend) but now the temps are soooo hot. I'm thinking that it's Friday the high goes up to 89 Now THAT'S HOT for me!!! LOL!

Have a great bithday!!!!!
