Good Morning,Marie. Before I forget...do you know Donna's birthday is the 16th? I had a good night. Did not get up until 7:30. Tom all ready off to the local GYM. Mt BG 109. How was your night? Did you get up and down? How are your readings? I hope better. We kept waiting and waiting for the promised rain nothing. I had a loin of pork l;ast night they all loved it. I did not eat just had some veggies. I dread going but Russ and I need haircuts so we will go about 11. Glad Tom is here he can help me load the car tomorrow as I have 3 huge bags of stuff for the Tops White Elehant sale on Wed, Give my best to Ed. Hope all is well with you. Have a good day. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie, I have been busy but mostly have been having a hard time typing. The docotos did not catch that my thyroid levels were low and I have hypothyroidism, so now as one sympotom I have carpal tunnel in my hands and they are really sore. I have had my dose increased so hopefully in a while it will go away. I am seeing the doctor again today to find out about it, like how long it will last. I had a nice Mother's Day. The weather was beautiful and my son suprprised me with a gift certificate to DSW. It is so funny, on the gift card it says, "This gift may cause exteme joy." I was really touched because my son knows that I go "shoe shopping" when I am feeling down and that was so perceptive of him, bless his heart. I hope that you have had a nice day as well. How come Mother's Day makes you feel down? If the quilt show is next weekend, you must really be a busy lady. I wish I could be creative again. I will open my account so that you can feature my photo. I am doing a diet and that is the "beofore picture" as the doctor wants me to lose 30 pounds and get in better shape. I am hoping that by the end of summer I will be able to fit in the Cystal Bowersox T-Shirt that I won. Then I will take another picture and send it to Manny! Thanks for remembering me on MD. Reed is so sweet, and he left me a message every day while I was gone. I didn't have the heart to bother him with my aches and pains when he is having such a hard time with poor Russ. Boy, what I wouldn't do for the both of them and Tom to somehow make it better. They are really good, good people. Well, back to the doctor again, ha, I think I will just move in over there and save myself some gas! I hope that you have a nice day. Here is it steel grey and about to rain. How is it for you? Will you be able to take your walk around the lake today? This is me lately! Lots
Marie Mother's Day is really hard for me since my mom passed. Yes it's been like 9 years but it's still hard for me. I just get through the day. My kids never say "Happy Mother's Day" to me or anything like it. Nothing from them either. Sooo my hubby went out and got me a lovely card from him and a rose! Such a sweet hear!!!

Hey Marie!! This morning I'll go to my g-mothers for Mother's Day and we'll decorate the graves of my family IE decoration Day so I'll start up my greatings after I get back in. Hope all is well in ur neck of the woods.
Good Sunday morning all those prospects sound great. I love Chatham. Going to 9 Mass and I will pray extra hard this morning and light a special votive candle. I went to the beach yesterday. Noy enjoyable as it was very windy and the seaweed stench was terrible. Russ does not feel comfortable going into places with the walker. We postponed ny birthday dinner until next Saturday. Glad you had a good BG. Mine was 106.
Still no rain but we water every day so my plants and trees doing well.
Tom is a big help. He wears the Big Blue Test and DHF tee shirts.
All for now. My very best to Ed. ST. Joseph here I come. HUGS,
I love sup so I would be a good customer.
The funnest part about it???? Ud think u could leave me alone for a few houyrs right??? Not so!!! I'm bad! LOL! That was the 1st time I had been totally alone in like 3 years b/c of thoser STUPID lows!!! LOL!
Oh Marie - I am chuckling about Reed and Russ going to BB&B. It's a fun store. I have to still be pretty careful with my salt intake, so generally don't have guac at a restaurant but rather make it myself. I have a mini electric food chopper that I use to puree the avocado, although I do like it somewhat chunky. I think next time I'll just dip it with lettuce cups or carrot stix as I felt just awful for about three hours and then was afraid of going hypo. Yuck. The grocery store that is closest to me has it's own home economist, wearing a white coat and walking the aisles. She said instead of chips to buy wonton wrappers and cut them in wedges and bake them in the oven until crisp. I didn't have time to check out the nutrition data but will get around to it. Might be good with some smoky paprika sprinkled on top. Hope you and Ed have a good weekend.
Good Morning,Marie. I completely forgot about the chat. I was grocery shopping. Tom is here for 5 days so that means Reed's Diner works overtime. He ran this morning comes in and takes down the black electric frying pan..a signal he wants a Lumberjack breakfast. Bright sun. No rain. BG 98. Russ is walking a little without the walker. That no hip operation took a big load off his shoulder. Did you read where they took an 8 month old baby off the plane as her name was on the No Fly List? It is amazing to me how your readings go up and down so. I d not know how you cope. When I go low I panic.How big is Btanchville? Would there ber enough people for Ed to run errands take people to doctors etc. We need that here. I am going to Bed,Bath and beyond as Russ thinks our kitcchen chairs too hard on his rear. I hope you have a good day. you and Ed always in mt Prayers and thoughts. HUGS,Reed
Marie- I just saw where Tu is having a meet-up in Philly. I would really love to come and meet my friends ( especially you) who will come there. Since I don't drive anymore, I will have to check Jim's schedule for that day. I sent Reed a b-day card, I hope he has a happy one. I can't believe it is a year that Ed is out of work. I wish I could do something for you both. Has he ever thought of doing anything different from the work he did before ? Jim did that 2x after leaving the work he did for 20 years. Even now, being retired, he has 2 small jobs a couple days a week. ( He delivers balloons for party store, and drives a neighbor's elderly mother to the beauty salon and shopping once a week.) Jim always says " Think outside of the box." Cat
Hello Marie. So very happy nothing wrong with Russ's hip that was a big relief and a weight off my shoulder. I just read the extended unemployment benefits ends Sat. What are folks going to do. What kind of a night did you have? I hope good. Were you high or low? Do you call your Mother I think it is too far to visit her. Here the gas has gone from $4.31 to $4.04. I cannot tell you how hard I pray say the Rosary that something opens up for Ed.It must be terrible to be going through it. You knowit is not the qualifications but the age. Tom says theyare doing the same thing at the university. Take good care of yourself mke some more of those coasters take a walk. I care about the two of you. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Marie. Russ was up again had a cup of tea. I wonder if today is on his mind. He said if had to have hip replacement he would do it. Not walking getting to him. Then..rememeber the adrenal gland growth we had forgotten. They ghadn;t, He sees Dr. Hus (pronounced Sue) May 22. We never got the promised rain. We both look like shepherds but we cannot see us going in the barber hop with walkers. I might ask Tom to put a bowl on our heads and cut around. MY BG 104./Sun bright. Did you have a good night or was it Blah? How about your readings? All over the place? Give my best to Ed. I will keep you posted. Take good care. I care. HUGS,POPS
Hello Marie. I got home safe and sound. No problems. I wanted to gain 2 or 3 pounds as I am way under goal. No such luck. I only gained 1/2 pound. Topic was value of fruits and veggies. NO RAIN yet. Hope you are feeling better Best to Ed. HUGS,Reed
