Hi Mr Gator. I read that Russ is a little better. Thats good. We had rain last night so that is good for my grass seed. i had to repair the lawn from the dumpster as it caused a little damage to the lawn. I put my upside down tomato planter together and am ready now to grow some tomatoes. They are a fruit you know but they dont spike me too bad if I eat them in moderation. I have enough insulin on board to cover the rise LOL

My next project is to get the wall paper off the walls in the bathrooms and pick out paint.

Tomorrow I am going to lunch with the senior group at the Parish. They are pretty active so I will take some trips with them from time to time.

Hey speedy - I had a glorious day today. The new foot doctor was from India and a very nice lady. Respectful and easy to talk to. She was very thorough. We talked about general care, exercise and shoes. She said to be sure to look inside my shoes each morning to be sure there are no foreign objects. I thought this seemed a bit silly - what, do I have a poltergeist who comes by when I'm sleeping and drops rocks in my shoes? But, an ounce of prevention.....
Then I went to the MegaMall and it was nice and quiet. Sears was having a huge sale and I got two winter sweaters for $3 each.
Came back and had a great workout at the Y and can feel that I will sleep well tonight.

Reed, that's great about the doctor. I love my Indian doctor, I've been going to him as long as we've been in NJ (10 years).

Hi Reed hope things go ok with the new doctor. I'm sure you made the right decision to go with Dr Kudia. I am doing quite good at the moment and no lows today which made a nice change. Nicks shoulder is much better but he now has a ganglion on his wrist and has to have it drained tomorrow!! Never a dull moment here that's for sure. Tricia x

HI Reed- Sunny, but cool this AM. Jim is at the polls, PA has its primary election today, and he is the Judge of Elections at our district. I voted absentee a few weeks ago, wasn't sure I could get there to vote. Good luck with your new doc appt. this afternoon, if you like him better than your "old" doc, then switch. If you don't like him as much, then go back to the "old" one. My BG was 56 this AM. I am sure it will go up. I joined the Choc. lovers Group, I really love dark choc. Jim got me some for my b-day last week. I only have eaten a little piece so far. I will make it last quite a while. Hope you have a nice day. Cat

Good thing the computer was being dumb and didn't post my last comment there. I was MAD at CCs so it wasn't the nicest about them their ways or their mail system!!!! LOL! I was 174 this moring and yesterday I was over 200 all day! The dr sent in my scrip to test 8 times day Feb (done it waaaaay more yesterday) and they told me they had sent out a paper log for my bs's that I sent in 2 weeks ago and they still hadn't got it. HUH???????? I wasn't nice to say the least and told them to check their mail (not too nicely either) I think both me & Marie are running on the Debbie Downer this morning. LOL!

It got down to 35 last night. Freezing is at 32 it was a goodthing I covered up the tomato plants last night b/c this morning we had a frost too.

Hi Mr Gator. Yes I did go to Morning Mass but went to a different parish. There is one very close by that offers confession every morning and I had something bugging me to get off my chest before I took the Eucharist. I also like that I can go face to face there with the priest. I dont really like the booth. He is a very nice priest and helped me with my confession. About 50 seniors go to morning mass there so it is nice to know I can get both sacraments if I need them.

Dr report was good so far so I am done with that. I was just out seeding where the dumpster was as it wrecked my yard. I have other chores to do today and have to get a contractor lined up with the cemetery. Hope you and all in the Gator house are doing good. Pauly

ok, I'm going to delete my comment now that you've seen it. no sense being Debbie Downer here, we have enough troubles. luv ya.

Reed your comment from this morning did not show up on my page until now - 10:30 p.m.and I was worried.
Yes, I saw the movie Young Adult and it had no redeeming value. Mercury is a fake town but did somewhat resemble small town Mn.
I regretted spending money on admission.
They say northern lights may be visible tonight - what am I to do? Stand on the roof in my pj's?

Hi Reed - I see you just left a comment for someone an hour ago so now I am not worried.
Lovely day here today. Nothing going on. I saw a teenage bunny in the yard. Tomorrow I go to the podiatrist, but my dr has left the practice so I'll be seeing someone new.

Hi Reed!
so less than a month for your birthday! can I be first one to say Happy BD? haha
I'm glad you are doing good, so you doing exercise with those "girls"? :) oh I think you mentioned something about knees? what do you guys do?
I do need to do more exercise, it's really hard for me you know? I dont have the discipline :(
I didn't go see the Pope, it wasn't that far from home but couldn't but they said it was great and he's cute :) we love him! and it shows haha

Spring is quite nice here, sunny and not too hot :)

Thanks for your messages

The b-day party was sooo cute!! It was alot of fun!

Yes K can do the repares to the car. ur like me I can't do anything besides check the oil & put the gas in it! LOL!

We're under a freeze advisory tonight. I guess that means I'll have to go out there and cover up my little tomato plants. I just set them out like on Thrusday and then after our rain on Friday the temps started getting colder again and now we got the Freeze advisory out and we have to watch for frost in the morning. Good for Russ!!

Hi Mr Gator. I am doing fine. I had my Dr appointment this morning. My A1C was 5.5 not too bad but of course could be better. I will work on some carbs over the next three months and see what I can cut out without too drastic a change. I am waiting on some other tests but the Dr was very happy with my blood pressure and that I am still loosing weight. Weather is Sunny. I got rid of the dumpster this morning. Hope your weather drys up. I think I will go to morning mass tommorow. Pauly

Hi my friend. I had such a very nice day today. It is still a bit cool. I think that glass o wine helped me sleep. I had a very lucid dream about my paternal grandfather. He was talking to me but now I forgot what he said.
Had an excellent workout at the Y. When I came in one of the trainers was running up to the front desk and yelled "call 911" and send them to the men's lockerroom." The treadmill I got on looks out onto the street and I saw when the ambulance got there. Then about a half hour later they left with an empty stretcher. I guess it was a false alarm.
Came home and had some baby potatoes with rosemary and a pork tenderloin and cauliflower. Very yummy. When I was working I never prepared ull meals for mysel, but now I enjoy it.
Have a good week ahead.
