Good Morning,Emily. I hope you have found time for dancing. Nothing was on my mind but I woke at 4AM and try as I may I could not get back to sleep. I got up at 5. Dark. A nice quiet time to do the birthdays and the Welcomes. As always it starts out dreary but by 10AM the sun shines and we head for the 80's. My BG 106 I am in a rut LOL. Big events today that are exciting drug store and the fish market during Lent we must have fish on Friday. Tomorrow I hit TARGET or as we say here if we want to be elegant TAR JAY> I get my paper goods Listerine Diove etc. Tom comes tonight. I have all my tax stuff but still have not organized it to take to the CPA I usually have to pay over what I have paid in estimated taxes so I am in no hurry. Have a great and wonderful day. Stay in good control and take care of yourself. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning to you. Dr. Oz was tired so he stayed in bed. Started out dreary but now the sun is out and going to be 80's./ They canceled Russ's Cat Scan. Insurance said NO. I suppose 4 in a month raised a red flag. His urologist has to call the insurance doctor to iron it out. Russ does not have MEDICARE as teachers in MA did not work under Socil Security. Mt BG 98. My big event today go to the bank. My bank on the island closed so I have to go into the city to the main bank. A pain. I know you are busy bit hope you are keeping in good control/ Have a wonderful day. HUGS,Reed

Hello Emily. I looked in the obituaries and could not find my name so I must be living. I had a great night of sleep. Woke up to 73 degrees and humid at 7AM. It is supposed to be Winter. Need to go to the fish market. Fish n Fridays during Lent. I hate Florida fish so I hope I find something I like and salmon is not one of them. BG a bit high at 118 but I will take it. Hope all is well with you. I might take in a movie this weekend. Be good. Hugs,Reed

Lazy day. 84 degrees. I have been out on the deck catching some rays. BG 105. How are your readings? Russ polishing antique copper items. I hate housework. What is a broom? HAHA. The crdio surgeon called and will see Russ on the 22 of March. A lady at TOPS had the same problem the same surgeon and she said he is outstanding. Russ will be 86 March 26 and fears an operation. I know TUDIABETES keeps you bust but are you having any fun? I want to see WAR HORSE and the Iron Lady. Take good care of yourself. I care. KEEP DANCING. HUGS,Reed

I wouldn't have to feel guilty about taking unscheduled breaks at work to balance blood sugar levels. I could avoid checking the with reasonable accommodations box on job applications. I could think clearer. I would thank God for the blessing of one worry free day, and rest sore and tried feet from walking to lower high sugar levels. However, I would go on a long hike away from civilization, and explore the beauty of a distant wilderness, and take a hundred pictures to show others what I saw and found fascinating.

Hi Emily. I cannot believe all this time we had bad colds and it was WHOOPING COUGH. I thought only kids got it. I am feeling better. Now I need to hound Russ to go to the cardio vascular surgeon for that blocked artery. I get injections #5 in my knees today it is the final. They use SUPARTZ it really helps. You have a wonderful day stay in good control and match my BG 104. HUGS,Reed
