Hi Marie, How is your shoveling going? We haven't had much snow at all this year but it is cold. We have sun today so I am going to try to get out with the dog today. Have you heard from Reed? I am worried about him. I have a new cat. He looks just like Zen only huskier. He is cute. I am cleaning my carpet, got a new steam cleaner so it should be more fun than usual. I love the smell of clean carpet. Ammi is getting a bit chubby. He is on a diet. I am sorry but I haven't walked him much in the cold. He plays in the backyard but needs some walking just like me to stay healthy.

Thanks so much for your wishes. I plan on having a great day and I'm going to go out to a seafood restaurant tonight. We hardly ever eat out.

Hi Marie! Yes, I heard the news! Lots is changing here... I regret that I did not remain more active on TuD. I stay active in the OhBaby group. So I try to check in there once a week.

Lots has changed here too!! Our daughter was born on December 27. So we are now a family of four. :) We are all doing well and she is just a delight!

How are you??? Send an update when you have time!!!

Hey…just a quick update…I had a work weekend, so my time was limited. I have a draft of the email to be sent about the lobbying…I amm not quit done with the content before I start wordsmithing it withthe correct language…but I hope to have it ready soon.

With that being said , I am meeting with the MAG lobbyist (Medical Assoc of Ga) today for an inforaml discussion before I start meeting formally with groups that hopefully can get this in a committee to get it on the floor for the a vote.

I just wanteed to keep you in the loop.

Hello Marie, Been busy. Missed church. I finally got Russ to the ER they are keeping him..pneumonia plus other things. I am glad as I could not handle him. Tom is with him.
A lot on my mind. Hope all is well with you. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie, thank you for your warm welcome! It has been great and helpful to stay connected with people here since no one around me ever has T1D and knows much about it.

Hi Marie, Your dinner party sounds like it is going to be wonderful. I need your grape leaf recipe. I want to make some for my son. I wish I was invited to your house for a meal! I found this on FB and thought you would like it. How is your quilting and bread making coming along? Is it cold and snowy for you? Here it looks like it will be a nice day.

Ha, We made it to 2015! I hope you are feeling okay this new year? I am trying to catch back up with everyone. It is cold with a little snow here. I am feeling much better but have some really messed up issues with my neck and the nerves in there. I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon. They found the same type of tumor in my liver but it is saying there for now. It started growing a few months after the first one was removed. Now that is all my health news, so I feel okay. I wasn't around for poor Reed. Did he leave again? I see he is sending friend requests? I like your quilts of valor pictures. Happy winter, lots of snow for you, I bet. Ellen

I just started quilting myself. I have always sewed but the quilting BY HAND is fantastic. I'm taking classes twice a week with a lady who's passionate about quilting. I can tell it is changing my life. I'm getting more patient and enjoying just every minute. I want to do only that BUT there's a lot of other things to do too! I'm afraid my knitting and sewing projects have been put on the back burner! You must be an expert! I saw the hands foundation quilt.

Have a nice day! Mari

Have a nice day!

Hi Marie! Thanks for the note. It has been a difficult week in France with the terrorists attacks. And there was also a terrible tragedy for some people we know. BUT Yesterday, I met a man with diabetes! My doctor asked me to talk to this person who was hesitating to get on the pump. I think I convinced him and it was so nice to talk the same language with someone. I felt less hypochondriac LOL

How are you Marie? What's baking? I love to bake too but I don't anymore. My BG's can't handle it! Oh well, I do other things. Big hugs to you too. Thanks for reaching out!!

I hope 2015 is a better year for you and Ed than 2014. I am wishing for good health for all the members of TuD. I hope I will feel good enough to spend more time on the site. It certainly has grown this year, it is mentioned frequently in Diabetes Forecast. When is the platform changing, do I have to do anything to save the stuff on my page ? Take care. Cat
