Thanks for the good wishes Marie....enjoy your Canadian Thanksgiving at your sister's....hope you have a SUPERB time ♥ Slept in this, did I ever need it!!! Will finish shopping for Thanksgiving stuff, and return/exchange a brand new pair of shoes that broke at the strap. Should not have happened with $199. shoes!!
We're fixing up what used to be Len's office into a guest room (mostly for the grand kids, with bed, crib, dresser, shelves, change table. The bed will also be convenient if a relative comes for an overnight visit. Len's office is going downstairs next to the family well, I can now rearrange MY office, by taking out the crib and change table....and repositioning my shelves, cupboards and art table. YEAH!! I can barely move in there at the moment. 24C here today....26 ( 80 F) tomorrow! Summer clothes'll be beautiful as well on Monday for the Thanksgiving Day parade.

Thank you again. I guess I do love him. LOL! I've gotten so used to him being with me that I'd be lost without him. LOL! No really. How u doing so far this morning. I changed my set out yesterday and after getting up with a 270 looks like I might have to do it again today.

My daughter has been house and dog sitting for a friend who went on vacation about an hours south. So my wife and I are going to go down there and bring her back home. So probably lunch out and then diner here. I wish I could walk around your lake.

It will be warm here today with the temps near 90. But that is what I like about the south.

Funny --I was just talking to John this morning about the need to get more regular with our weekend walks (which I will now officially call "walkies") . I woke up at 173 -- rats! And the sad thing is -- it;s actually better than some of the days I've had. I found out that where I work owns the assay for HB1AC and that one of my buddies there was the IP lawyer that secured the patent for it. I told him that right now he is the reason i hate going to the endo because I know she can see all my high BGs in that A1C -- LOL. Running a non-profit, I can assure you that they will value their time in volunteering the same way the value your donations. I think that's wonderful!

Marie, Just wanted to write and say thanks for all the love, support & prayers during this past week. It was a deeply tragic and sad time for our family and very difficult for both Pete & Becca . Hoping to just have a quiet Sat/Sunday till he has to go back to Pittsburgh and just be able to enjoy the fact we have each other. It was hard to watch Rickey's family suffer thru this tremendous heartache.
I appreciate the friendships I have here. You guys are just so great.
Love, Joanne

Evening Marie....SO SO happy it's Friday...AND a long weekend!! It appears that Wednesday's episode was an ocular migraine. Saw my optometrist yesterday, and will see my family physician next Thursday. Not painful other than leaving pressure in your forehead when the aura lifts....but cannot see well when most of my vision is altered! Yup....our Thanksgiving is THIS weekend! Turkey time!!
I don't think our Thanksgiving Day customs are much different from yours, from what I've read/seen on tv. The only difference might be in the addition of cultural foods added to the usual fare (depending on your cultural background!). We have always included Tourtières to the meal (a traditional French meat pie). But other than that, it's turkey for us and the works! I promise to be good. I'm hosting it on Sunday...doing it on the actual day (Monday) would have me totally drained for going back to work on Tuesday.
Luv....linda ♥
Will also pace myself, so that I can enjoy my company (the kids and their family).

Everything sounds great and looks delicious!! :)

We have a lentil recipe, which we call our "end of the month" recipe. A whole pot costs about 4-5 dollars and we get at least four meals out of eat. We eat it with boiled eggs and hot dogs. It's nothing gourmet, but it's healthy, very filling, and cheap!

U know I hadn't relized how apart we had gotten but those few days brought us back up to par. I was going one way and him another on almost everything there for a few years but it helpped put us back into prospective.

Yes, teething already! He seems in such a rush to grow up :-) I have heard though that we may see signs of teething MONTHS before the first tooth cuts through. Poor guy! A cold, wet washcloth and lots of cuddles seem to be the only cures.

Hope that you are doing OK! I saw on Reed's page that it will be Greek weekend at your house -- wish that I could stop by! I'm about to prepare some layered eggplant for some guests that will come tomorrow. Hugs!!

Honestly I've came to that conclusion too. I'm so tired of trying with her. That time away helped quite abit for me & my hubby. I couldn't belive what I came back into. Like my husband said "We took a few days for ourselves something A & J do all the time and look what we came back into"

I thought about Mark when we were in Atlanta But for real the traffic on the interstate came to a cral there even had to stop a few times on the intersatte. Good thing my hubby was driving or if it was me I would have gotten off on an exit and stayed the night there. Not the most patent person when it comes to traffic being from TN! LOL!

As for A she MUST take responisibility. I'm getting to where it is just too much for me. Yes what if I dropped dead tomorrow what would she do for supplies??? insulin & such?? I can't keep it up and put myself in danger. Something she don't get apperantly.......

OMG at the riding we done. We went to Pegion Forge the 1st night then the 2nd day we went through N. Carlina and S. Courlina then to alanta Geroga. After all that we slep overnight in Dalton Gerora. Then all day yesterday we drove back to Jackson TN over in the West part of TN.

AS for A I think she never got the insulin. Her complaint when we got over in East Tn was that I had her insulin and she needed to get in the house for it and all the insulin I had was for my pump. No she wasn't taking her shots and she told the Dr at Reginal that she only ate 2 times a day. She will sit and eat 3 big mac's at a time along with 2 orders of fries in the middle of the day. You know I've been there and decided that I didn't want my kids to grow up with out a mother now she needs to put that 1st and forget the rest. pm
