Hello....yes, I used to kinda laugh at my Mom using an electric blanket, well, now it is my new best friend. I am using just a twin one to cover myself, and it was my Mom's. I have not seen the prices on them. I will keep my eyes out for you when I go shopping and see what they run for a king at various stores.
My cat Persia loves the blanket too, she stretches out and puts her paws into the air and makes pie and just looks at me as to say, "I am in heaven"!!
Have a good day and take care. take care xo

Sadly, no weight loss. Was down a few late-summer/early-fall from cycling, but not enough to make it permanent through winter party season and too-cold-and-windy-to-want-to-get-out-on-the-bicycle. The photo is from late January -- our Friends of Faire group's annual Burns Dinner.

My granddaughter's might just get a barbie for Christmas seeing I get to keep all the presents we get them over here! I GET A BARBIE!!!! or 2 !!!! My grandmother (the sewer (?) in the family) always made my Barbies clothes. She even bought patterns back then to do it!! A few years back a friend here bought me a Barbie for Christmas! She said she seen it thought of me automatically! Show's you my Barbie fedish huh?

Sorry about that infusion set! You might do what I've done about the BG machine.I thought more than once I lost my favorite just to have it turn up in someplace I didn't remember leaving it only to remember doing it after I found it!! Good Luck!!

Oh, oh Barbie dolls for only % bucks??? Did you get mone??? I LOVE Barbies! Sorry a bit of the kid in me! HA!! I think your right. We can speak freely to each other but I didn't want you to take me the wrong way here. Like I said ANY TYPE of storoid does it to me. Different ppl different outcomes, huh? Thank you for those nice words!!

Hi Marie , I just put Sandy in for Tudiabetes Life Coach. I was hoping you will do the same since she did so much for all of us.

Marie I'm sorry I was kinda shout awhile ago but grandkids and breakfast you know? I was a member of the welcoming commity back when but I wanted to leave when I had no accrss to the computer so I did. Iwas waiting for Many to get the time to let me get back there ( I didn't want to appear snotty ) I'm just glad to be able to do it again. You had 14 degrees? Down here it was 17 degrees and that's just plain COLD when your used to the low being around 30! HA!

Hey Marie - that eczema on your hand sounds right nasty. My husband has a problem with ONE hand, that flares up from time to time. They've never been able to figure out what causes it, they've opened up his hand to find out what is lodged in there, but it's never really solved anything. It's not as bad as it was 10 years ago, but still has it's days. One thing, when we go away to a warm, moist climate (e.g. when we go to the Caribbean for a few weeks) - all his probs clear up! I wish I like hot/humid weather, because we'd live there then (he likes that weather, I like the northern weather - total opposites - give me a warm wooley knit sweater anyday ). Take care (psst - we're almost twins in our diagnosis dates - I was diagnosed in September 1968 - isn't that wild!).

Marie, I talked to Debb last night after I got back on the computer and she told me that it was an 80 something old man that had hit them in the snow storm that had totaled out his car last week and had just gotten another car back and it looked like this one was totaled too. I read Debb's comit on my page and atomatically called her! She said her grandson had gotten out of the ER and was OK as far as they could tell, Steph is keeping him oout sclool today and make sure!

So your hubby gets back today? I know how I get when my husband's gone for a day or 2 , I can't wait for him to get back. But let me say this he drives me crazy if I'm with him day in and day out! Just been married too long huh?

Thanks for the comments, Marie! I was surprised to learn how many T1s are working in medicine. I never noticed until I started to pump and then I met them all over the place. Physicians and other practitioners see the pump and then they pull their pump out!

I'm planning on working as a PA in cardiothoracic surgery, although I do have an interest in endocrinology as well. I am a member of the American Society of Endocrinology PAs, but there aren't may great jobs in the Chicago area in this field.

Have a great holiday!

Thanks for those tips Marie! My inbox is filling up pretty quickly. I'm spending so much time on here I've become a slacker in my "school" duties. Trying to write my last essay before Xmas break. Have a great day!

Am so happy for your great news! I'm in awe of your talent. I'll not wear something if it's missing a button because I can barely thread a needle. Elizabeth Rosenberg has a new web site, in case you haven't seen it. She's doing some interesting new work.

Thanks for your kind words. Means a lot.

Hope you're doing well, Madame Prez.

Oh my gosh Marie I thought I told you that I went by Doris, But i will answer to Doris Ann too! Sorry I saw where you were calling me that but decided that I would let you call me that anyway! So you get to keep down on the carpal tullel surgery? NO FAIR I've had to have i like 2 years ago on both hands! Then I had a Trigger Thumb that had to be done too! My hands were just there to look pretty they served no function for about a year. I still can'y open a childproff medicen bottle so I just get the flip top kind! HA

You guys get all the blessed winter weather don't you? The low tonight is suppost to be like 17 so of course with us ppl used to the warm weather we have to winterwise aroound here. One thing even the news was telling us this morning was to leave our water on a slow trickle to keeop from freezing up tonight. The weather also said that it was really unuasually cold for this time of year in the Mid South! Guess I get to freeze again tonight! HA!

Hi Marie, I joined the Seniors Group but there is very little going on there. Lots of joiners but not much talk between them I wish I had more time to interact. I spend very little time on Tudiabetes bou I love the site and its friendly members.

Thanks for the suggestion that I join this group.
