Hello Reed, hope your day went well. Congrats on being the "Big man on Campus" for the TOPS group....the ladies just love you,lol. Tired a bit, not a good protein day so I'm trying to force down a protein shake (UGH) Work tomorrow, lots of errand to do, guess on Friday they'll get done. I'm too tired when I come home ...dinner is about all I can manage. BS this morning was 90. I still find it pretty amazing. Have dropped 2 sizes and my closet is pretty empty. Have some gift cards but waiting for more spring and summer stuff to come out. Have taken to sewing again and took in a lot of my scrubs for work. Still quiet here with Keith on vacation down your way in Tampa. Great weather today, lol. he left and the weather here goes to 60.
Hope you and Russ are well. <3 <3 Joanne
Hi Reed. Yes, congrats on your re-election. I belonged to a book club once where a couple members did not want to do any of the organizing, or even read the book - they just showed up to chat and have snacks. It's too bad all the work has to fall on you - can't you get an assistant to help? Got my 'puter back today - all that was wrong was something in the connection where you plug it to the electrical hookup. Only cost $10, but they are picking up in business so that's why it took 2 days. I am lost without my computer.
It was raining this morning, and 51 degrees - we beat a 100 year record for warmest morning temperature.
I have to use a mailorder pharmacy for maintenance medications, like blood pressure, thyroid and sleeping pills. I can only go local if it's a one-time deal, like antibiotics. The mail order place has given me the runaround so many times, I could strangle them. They are just awful. One time they sent me a duplicate order of test strips, which I kept, figuring they owed me for grief endured.
All this waiting must be hard on Russ. Seems like we are always waiting for something - the next appointment, the next test, and then the test results. It's enough to age a person ten years overnight.
My aunt and uncle will be married 60 years this June and we are planning a big open house party, which means that probably 300 people will come. They both were high school teachers too and very popular in the community. I said to just have cake and punch but they both want a whole huge midwestern buffet, so I guess we better get movin'.
Hi Reed, I had an ok night. went to bed with a 160, woke up 143, took some insulin, which did NOT bring it down, and hour later 158, took more, now I'm 245. ok, I feel not good, guess I'm changing my set. nice weather here, we are going to walk around the lake today. Ed is not hopeful at all, I don't know what we're going to do quite frankly. It's his age. I think manny may have gotten a dog, his new profile pic on Twitter has what looks like a small white poodle-type dog in his arms, cute. Is Russ going for an open MRI or the one in the tube. I hope the open one.
hi Reed, Ed's parents had the bug people come three times a year. she kept the house spotless and they still got in sometimes. here, we just get mice occasionally in the basement. and the occasional bat, but the white nose disease has wiped most of our bats out. anyway, I had a nice day even though I'm sleeping poorly. I got binding put on a quilt for a wounded soldier, and we discussed ways we can get more members to support our efforts. we just got back from our afternoon walk. springtime is right around the corner.
Hi Reed I had a few bad days but feeling much better today. My BG was good this morning at 73 so doing well considering the steroids! It would have been my dear Grandmothers biirthday today and had she still been alive she would have been 116 so perhaps it was time for her to go when she did, which was 3 weeks before her 100th birthday. Hope things are good with you and I was pleased to hear they had sorted Russ's MRI instead of CAT scan. Ways around things!! Tricia x
HI Reed- How are you doing ? Also, Russ. I am OK. BG was 108 this AM. I'll take it. We use a Bug Man too. A few years ago we had termites in our walls. Got rid of them and have been using the Bug Man ever since. We actually get some bug during the summer. Many of them are taken care of by our cats. They especially like the millipeds. Time for lunch !!! Cat
Nope not unless something really goes wrong will i stay overnight. So far it looks like I'll go in in the morningat 5:30 and will be the 1st operation (scoop) he will have that day then after I recover from the anistetic they will give me for the procedure I will be coming home later that day.
I go with u on the bug man better safe than sorry! LOL! I have a guy that come here every 3 months just for that! LOL! Not seen a bug in 23 years but like the idea that he comes just incase! LOL!
Thank you Seagator for the BIG welcome!!!! I am a South African citizen and live in the lovely town of Hermanus which is very close to Cape Town. I will be in touch with you as there is so much to talk about and share. Have a lovely week. Bunty
Hello, Seafood sounds so yummy!! I am doing very well, happy to finally see....almost clear. I was in the blues the last few days, kinda off and on. I am really missing my friends and daughters/granddaughters....hard. It has been in the 70's here, but rain on the way. Hope all works out for Russ. Tomorrow is shopping....food. :) Take care xo
Ahh Reed...it's been SUCH a long day...then a long staff meeting. The straw that broke the camel's back came when the principal approached me at the end of the meeting, just as I was about to walk out the door, to tell me that one of the teachers whose children I teach, is not happy with the report cards, and wants a meeting Wed. after classes with the principal and myself. The girls, one in grade 2 and one in grade 4...are very sweet, and put in a great effort....but they just don't get it. God knows I've accommodated their needs. You know....I am getting SO tired of EVERYTHING!....My gosh, if it's not one thing it's the other! It's draining and I'm wiped :(
Sorry for dumping on you Reed....I guess that's what you get for being "dad" of the bunch!
You're trying to gain weight, right? Does that mean you should eat off of a big, white plate and keep the kitchen open late? Maybe keep a fork glued to your hand at all times? Just kidding :) It seems to me that you do a great job, judging by your BG updates!
I did NOT do any dancing this weekend, which was actually a very welcome break. My dance partner and I have to buckle down soon and start practicing on the weekends because we have another competition in a couple months.
I got Marie's 99 at 8 this morning. I'll not agrue with it. LOL! I hope Russ will get an answer soon. Kenneth is doing well nothing major going on now. THANK GOD!!!! He's doing light things around here nothing to big he's taking his time which for him is a mirical in it's self. Hey tell Marie that if u go to wal-mart on Sundays and Tuesdays (I think it is) u can get ur hair cut for $10 if all she wants to do is just keep it trimmed. Their good for that. I use them for that alot. As for getting a certian style well that's another story there. LOL!
