Good Morning,Marie. I did not have a good night. It seemed like I was awake every hour. The sun is out and it is pouring rain. STRANGE..was there an odd moon? My BG 115. Did you ever get yours regulated. TOPS was good. I stayed the same. 20 were there. One lady gained 8.6 in a week????Veggie talk good, You know some squash hard to peel. One lady suggested punching holes in it microwave it for a bit it softens and easy to peel. So pleased Pauly is going back to his Faith. It will be a comfort to him. Washing sheets today. Doing a little shopping as the lumberjack..Tom..comes tomorrow. Major shopping Saturday. New fish place opened near me. They say they get their fish shipped down frm Maine. I shall see what the have. Is the hand still bothering? How is Ed doing? Say hello for me. Don;t forget to sell me raffle tickets. Have a great day. POPS

Today Marie was the first day I looked at stock charts and the market. I attended an online web event this afternoon that was hosted by one of the exchanges in Chicago. I have had no trades on since mid September. Will be looking again in the next few days to put some trades on. So yes looking at getting back on the saddle work wise.

After a 13 year lapse from faith I am re discovering it and helps. As I told Mr Gator I like the priest at the parish alot. I may see him in the near future too.

I know I have to stay active. Thank you for the support.

Hi Marie- I am just loving this weather, I even turned on the heat the other night. It went down into the 40's and I was using 3 blankets. Jim just laughs at me. It should be back in the 80's by next week. I will be observing Yom Kippur this Sat. and saying special prayers for my friends on TuD. It is our fast day, but I do not fast. I don't think I could go without food or water for 24 hrs. Any news on the job front for Ed. Jim is involved in a community networking group that seeks out jobs in any and all fields of employment and lets people know what is available. Anything like that up your way ? Stay well !!! Cat

IT IS A TOPSY MORNING. Lot of my ladies seem to be having health problems. 5 will be out including my Co-Leader. My BG 112. Not as cool this morning..72. How are your readings did you get them lowered did you have to move things around? How is the hand? Still a bother? How is Ed doing? I hope something comes along soon for him. What does an artichoke test like? Is it bitter? Any plans for today? This afternoon,I am washing towels. I wonder if any more donations came in? You have a good day and take good care of yourself. The Neurologist does not want to see me for a year. YEAH!! Hugs,POPS

Oh that's pretty! Thats on your backyard? I would love to wake up to that everyday...
We are okay...Thanks Marie. Unfortunately I think typhoons just love passing by us LOL We had 3 in just one week...and the last one was a category 4....sigh. We still have power, thank God! And floods are mostly confined in the Metro and provinces. So, my family and I are warm and dry...blessings!
Bikette is such a wonderful...not to mention funny and pleasant person. I love her!

I would love to get a diabetes-related job, but everyone tells me that I'm nuts to think about switching careers... particularly in this economy. So I've kept my eyes open and am looking on occasion, but it's tough to find something for a person without training or experience in the field. Plus, I'd like to stay somewhat in my current salary range, which can be tough when switching careers.

You're very welcome Marie. Some names just resonate and become synonymous with TuDiabetes (particularly when I first joined and the TuD-community was much smaller), and Saundra's was definitely one of them.

I'm always aware of the State Fair at the Meadowlands, but not up in Sussex County. I'll try to make it next year... be sure to let me know when it is! And if there are any other D-related events (or even non-D related) in the area, please let me know. I'm not as tuned-in to these things as perhaps I should be. Lately, my life has been pretty much consumed with taking care of my 4 1/2 year old son and 8-months pregnant wife... :)

Thanks for the welcome message. This is my first log-in since joining. Glad to see someone else from sussex on the site. I'm active in the Sussex Red Cross group based in Newton. My wife is a T2DM with a broad family history of T2 in her siblings, parents, extended family. I'm doing my best to help her manage though insulin injections, etc.
