Hi Reed- We finally got the rain they promised us for 3 weeks. It is supposed to get really heavy tonight. My BG this AM was the same as yours 102. Went to bed with a 101. The lawn and trees will get a good soaking, they really need it. I got new glasses yesterday, and I am trying to get used to them. They are bi-focals. I never had them before. I wore contact lenses for 40 years when I was working in a lab. Hope you have a great week. cat

Hi Mr Gator. Went to early 7:30 mass today. I went prior to mass and prayed the Rosary with the group thats always there. Fr Jim presided. He is the elderly priest but very nice. Overcast and cloudy. Sounds like you had rain but now you have a sunny day.

Hi Seagator! Thank you for the warm welcome! Yes Taunton is the Silver City. i have lived here for the majority of my life. My family moved to Taunton when I was 1 1/2 years old. so pretty much my whole life. :) thank you for making me feel welcome!

Oh Reed how on earth could the dry cleaners lose your tablecloth? Hopefully it will show up - maybe it just got shoved in the wrong sack or something.
Glad you got the gift card for the bad ham. Most places want their customer to be happy.
If we were neighbors, I'd be your personal seamstress and you could be my personal chef. We'd both come out ahead.
Tonight is prom night around here - lots of couples all gussied up. But it's only 42 degrees and those bare shouldered little girls look mighty cold.
We had a good group dinner for Elaine's birthday. They brought her a free french fried ice cream but she had to show id and prove it was her birthday. I got coaxed into having a glass of wine - I seldom drink and could feel the effects immediately. I had planned to go to the Y after the meal, but instead came right home and collapsed on the couch. I feel really sleepy so will probably just call it a night.

There will be an added person on the birthday roster for today, as there was a member there with 2 accounts...a Christina.
I've informed the powers that be, and if the added account is deleted today, it will make room for someone else!

Morning Reed :) You would not believe how tired I was yesterday...and still today. I was at school 'till 9:30 pm yesterday, due to the 25th anniversary celebrations...on my feet the whole time! By the end, I was running on auto-pilot! Some teacher wore high heels! Not me...wore flats and my feet were STILL in pain! The staff had a catered dinner before families started arriving. Would you believe that the whole ordeal caused me to drop 3 pounds!! I sure AM taking it easy today....started off with sleeping in 'till 8:30!!
I had hoped my own kids would be able to it was an event open to all past students (and staff)....but they had to be at the old house yesterday to finalize claiming their salvageable possessions...and the articles of clothing etc that the insurance company had cleaned/dry cleaned through a restoration company. So unfortunately, they were not at the school to participate in the festivities.

hi Reed, that sounds like a lumberjack's breakfast. Ed made us a pretty big one too, it will last me most of the day. I'm going to visit a friend of mine in the hospital today. sorry you missed the rain. we're supposed to get soaked tomorrow. yes, the lake is rather low, that's why ed had to rig up a filtering system for his pump/sprinkler system. my only question about your pork chops is where did you get the gravy. our shrimp tacos were very good. and then I had some popcorn while watching a movie, so it made my bg go into 200-land. took .5 insulin at bed, and woke up with 147. think I'm going to change my set today, as it's day 2 and it's starting to itch.

Hi Reed. Not much new here. I slept like a log.
Went downtown to do some banking and then to the Dollar Store
My friend Elaine just brought me over a lemon custard cupcake that her sister made for her birthday. The filling was just the right degree of tartness. Tomorrow we are going to the Thai restaurant for a b'day party. I will call ahead and see if they give a birthday person anything special. Most places do. Good for publicity.
Now they are talking about the Vikings football team leaving town, particularly if they don't get a new stadium. Way too much fuss if you ask me. Minn Twins won 2 out of four games against the Yankees this week, which was a big deal. I am going to try to go to a home game this summer. Hot dogs and a glass of pop cost $6 each. I suppose I could shove a bunch of carrot sticks and apple slices in my backpack.....

Hi Reed I had a fairly pain free daay today so that was good. Glad to hear Russ's blood pressure was good, it must be such a relief!! You can have all the rain you like as we've just got so, so much of it and there seems to be no let up in the near future!! brrr and it's cold too!! Hope the Pork chop casserole went down well in ;Reids Diner' sounds delicious!! We had hailstone this afternoon and low and behold the sun came out later and the early evenning was beutiful and quite warm! A very pleasant evening. best wishes Tricia x

thought I'd send you some rain = )

Hello Reed. So glad it's Friday. Working and being on my feet all day is painful with this Achilles tendinitis. Ding therapy for now. MRI said major inflammation so they are trying to reduce that. But with the exercises, ultrasound waves etc it hurts more now but he says it's because I had lost some range of motion in my ankle when trying to turn it laterally .... to the outside. That's where it really hurts.Trying to plant some seeds in our garden. we are supposed to get a lot of rain Sunday so I figured I'll get them in before the rain. Happy things are well on your end.My BS this AM was 92. Still blows my mind.Took a large amt of my nice clothes to a re-sale shop and donated a bunch to Goodwill. Finally went on a shopping spree. Didn't cost me much. Had gift cards I had kept since fall knowing I would need them now.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Take care. <3 <3 Joanne

More scraps?

Thank you.
That is a wonderful gesture.

Reed, let me know about your pork chop casserole. we are having shrimp tacos tonight. the shrimp are brushed with garlic butter and then grilled, and it goes in a corn tortilla with a little sour cream sauce and shrredded cabbage. 18 grams of carb per serving. thank you so much for your extra prayers and just for being here for me, I'm very thankful you are part of my life.

Hi Mr Gator. I filled he dumpster now and they are going to pick it up on Monday

I do watch a couple of shows on EWTN but I listen more to Catholic Radio. I love Catholic Answers which answers questions on a call in show.

Yes there are many nice people at daily Mass. I likely will go a couple times a week. Both Priests come unless one of them has duties such as a funeral or something.

My BG was 118 this morning and little higher. I see the Dr on Monday and will get a new A1C to see how I am doing. I think I am loosing weight again and I dont know why.

Those dang koala bears! Sorry Reed. They're beyond even MY powers! Those are members that join through the TuAnalyze team and that's the pic they use to recognize each other.

I have a dance competition one week from tomorrow. YIKES! It's a big one and of course I feel very excited but unprepared (as always). When we get this close to a competition my dance partner and I start working even harder and the effects of my diabetes (vs. her NOT diabetes) become more apparent to me than usual, which is stressful to me and makes me angry. I have to work a LOT harder than she does to have enough health and energy to do what we do, and I'm hyper aware right now that I'm in constant danger of a blood sugar that we make me unable to continue, even in the middle of the competition.

So I myself don't pray, per se, but I want to ask for an extra moment in YOUR prayers this week. I LOVE competing, but the health part of it is kind of terrifying.

Thanks Reed! xo

Hey reed. Look likeMarie had a 40 low. I see where she said she could hardly get herself out of bed. I don't get that way til I fall around 25 on my bg. I was 78 this morning. I'll take it. Well look at it this way u DID get some rain. LOL! It's been pretty dry here too. Not any rain to speak of (now we'll have a flood since I said that. LOL!) Glad Russ is doing well now. Not much happening around here either. We're getting ready for Savannah's 4th b-day tomorrow. WOW! i wanna be 4 again LOL!
