Congrats MR. President. You have another year to whip those ladies into shape. Glad Russ' hearing has been resolved. My BG this AM was 98 great for me. Gotta run to a meeting. See you later. Cat =^..^=

thanks Reed, luv ya Pops, I went to a quilts of valor workshop today. I finally got around to requesting a destination for one I have finished, and I'm getting ready to send it to a field hospital in Bagram Afghanistan. I always wonder who will be getting the quilts, what their injuries are, etc. I started off the day with a terrible bg, now got it to 101, so I guess I have to eat something before we walk. well I'm SO glad at least they figured out Russ' ear and got that fixed!

Congratulations for being voted leader at Tops 5th year in a row!!
You know, stress can cause some of us to lose weight, as opposed to gaining it. I too fall in that category. The time at the cottage was just what the doctor ordered, so much in fact that we stayed another day :)
82 F here....I wont want to go back to school next Monday!! We usually have very little Spring like weather here before jumping into hot and humid. Don't care for the drenching heat....but sure LOVE what we have today! Delighted to hear that things are on the up and up with are all still in my prayers. Tonight RCIC. Take care Reed,

Hi Mr Gator. Thank you for letting me know my prayers are working. Just tell me when to stop... But I will always pray for all those in the Gator house. Weather is cool and damp now but we really need rain. It is very dry. My bg is good. I have to get some medical checks next week and see the DR though for some blood work. Pauly

Hi Reed - The forsythia are in full bloom. We are getting a bit more rain - much needed.
Did Russ get the problem with his hearing aides fixed?
I still have not finished my taxes, but I'm telling myself I must work on them for a full hour tomorrow as soon as I get up.
The mail order pharmacy goofed up my sleeping meds so now I have to go to the clinic and get a 3 day supply. I have a lot of pills to keep track of but must remember they are needed to keep me well.

Have a good time at TOPS tomorrow.

Hi Reed glad Russ is doing ok but what a shame he can't hear at the moment! I hope they can fix it for him. You sound like you are run ragged and in need of a good rest and I hope that soon you will be able to take it easy. I am not too bad thanks. The pain comes and goes so can't caomplain too much lol. Bg's also up and down but the steroids will do this to me! The joys!!! Take care Reed. Tricia x

HI Reed- You are still busy with Russ it seems. Make sure you don't forget yourself. Cloudy here but warm. Will be 80 on Friday. Today it is officially Spring. I am also seeing a PT for a balance problem I have. I hope it helps. BG this AM was 51. Take care. Cat

thank you Sir.

Hi Reed - Lady Lots must be looking very glamorous with her hair colored. And she is right about maybe Russ needs new batteries in his aides. One thing after the other. Are the PTs easy going or are they drill sergeants? The ones I had during my recovery were sort of mean.
Well we finally got a big gush of intense rain for about 30 minutes. I was just about to leave the Y and as I opened the door all this rain blew in and soaked me. Then the sirens went off so I went back in. They had the tv on at the reception desk and the sirens were just a high wind warning. I waited a bit and visited with some people.
On the machines, you enter your weight and then it tells you how many calorie you burn. My total for the day was 400, which is very good for me, but then I stopped at the store and those freaky big strawberries were on sale again so I got some and a tub of Cool Whip and now have probably eaten 400 calorie worth so negated my exercise. Sheesh! You can tell that story at TOPS and use it as an example of what NOT to do.
I got my new pedometer and it ha 4 buttons on it and I can't figure out how to even set the time. Guess I'll be up late cuz I wanna use it tomorrow...

I will mention Russ again in my prayers to the Blessed Mother in my morning prayers.Good BG. My eyes are fine as I had my eye check today.

My BG on wakeup was 91 so not too bad.

Thanks Reed for the kind greeting!! Hope all is well.

Well at least Russ will go to the dr. My g-mother who turned 87 (i think it was in Feb if not it's 86) won't even talk to u about going to the dr. She drives me sooooo crazy!!!!!

Yep I go this week for the preop stuff. Joy joy... Can u tell I'm starting to back out????? LOL! The dr shouldn't have gave me so much time. I hate anticipating it drives me up a wall. When I had my right shoulder done (about 5 or 6 years ago) I shocked both my husband & the dr b/c I wouldn't wait for 6 weeks to do it. I ask the dr how fast he could do it and this was on a Friday he told me on Tuesday so I told him to set it up on Tuesday I wanted to get it over with.not good on waiting b/c I know me I'll start backing out if I have to wait too long. LOL!
