Hello Marie only just diagnosed I'm getting confused with what carbs are good what are bad. Levels ok before I eat.then I have my insulin and dinner and my levels are going right down doctors not sure if I'm type 1 or 2.could I be taking to much insulin .or is there not enough carbs in what I'm eating.doctors think I could still be producing some insulin which could be effecting my levels,getting confused.

Hey sis, you getting any bad weather? I am boing to have to bone up o my geography, but looks as if the entire NE coast is getting something.
Schools are officially closed in Minn on Monday, and now a grocery store chain announced it will close at 10 pm tomorrow. We will have coldest weather in 20 years, or so they say.
I am not used to staying inside and today was a real challenge. I baked these mini loaves of blackberry quick bread because the berries were $1 a box

The recipe used apple sauce instead of sugar, but is still very dense in calories and carbs. It said to bake until a toothpick comes out clean. Well, I had no toothpicks so used a chopstick.
I am going to cut and weigh the slices and freeze them so I'm not tempted to devour the entire batch.

Good Morning,Marie. Know what I did? I took the sleeoing pill an hour before bed and it worked. I went right to sleep and woke up at 6:30.The rain has stopped and it is 45. I looked at Boston 2 and 24 inches of sbow. Tom ran the Marathon last week and did not feel like running this morning. I gave him his Lumberjack breakfast just the same. Theull undress the tree. I will do laundry and then grocery shopping. It was cold yesterday so Chico stayed in with us all day. I hope no more snow for you. Give my best to Ed. BG108. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Marie-Thanks for the info on the Aviva. I will check into it before I need to switch meters. I see you visited with your Mom. She certainly is feisty and seems to be feeling spry. I know, from my fil ( who lived to 105,)it is the feisty ones who live the longest. I am sure you got plenty of snow, we got about 6". It is currently 15. I plan to stay inside today. Now the weather people are talking about another storm next week. I think this winter will be very long, and cold. Stay warm. Cat

Hi Marie. The apartment fire was about 4 miles from me, near the U of Mn campus. They think it was some type of explosion. 14 people were taken to the hospital and 3 are missing. Some had to jump from the upper floor. Thankfully it was just 3 floors high. The big problem was keeping the firefighters safe from frostbite and from falling on the ice - the water froze quite quickly, clogging the hoses, etc. What a way to start the new year. Oy.
Bitterly cold again today, but I think I'm getting used to it as I did go out for a bit. Wore a full set of thermal underwear and two pair of mittens. Thankfully the buses were running on schedule. And, it's nice and warm in my apartment.
Be well.

Marie- I want to wish you and Ed a very Happy New Year also a healthy one. I am glad to say "good-bye" to 2013 and hope 2014 will be a healthier one for me.
I want to ask you if you like the AccuChek Aviva ? I found out this morning that Roche is discontinuing the test strip drums that I use for my AccuChek Compact Plus. They said that Roche wants people to switch to the Aviva. I do like AccuChek products, they are the only ones I have used since my Dx 15 years ago. I left a message for Rob Muller to ask him what the story is. The pharmacy was able to fill the
Rx today so I have some time to decide.
Have a great New Year. Susan

Hey sweet Marie. Yes, Alison and I go way back too. Her husband is from Minneapolis. Thanks for the heads-up.
12 freakin' below here and I have to pick up a prescription and go for my INR test. Now my sis emailed me and wants me to go to this upscale grocery store near me and get some kind of cocktail sauce I've never heard of.........My nephew is coming to get me so I don't have to stand in the cold at the bus stop.
Enjoy. Next year will be better.

Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. BG110. I had stuff I should not. Very warm days have tv on. Today it looks like rain. We are all done decorating and wrapping.. I do all my gifts online. Three good friends I send Christmas baskets. It is going to rain I think. Glad you had such a nice time at the Christmas party. Tom comes tomorrow and stays until after New Years. Christmas day. Church as Tom serves the host. Then we open gifts. Tom helped me yesterday and we did 2 big loads of laundry. Any orders to be filled? My best to Ed. I hope he sells 2 cars. Take good care and have a hood day. HUGS,Reed
