so they're all gone now, huh? do you miss them yet? I think it's for the best - too many peeps in one house. now you and your hubby can have a nice Valentine's Day.

now, what is it that you want to do on Twitter? I'm going to check out your page today, and see what you're up to. I just started following the type1 cross-country skiing Olympian. Basically, on Twitter I like to give TuDiabetes a boost, and also my best friend has a business she promotes on Twitter. She has thousands of followers, so when Manny has a message he wants to get out, I ask my friend Meg to "pls RT" which means "retweet" - it's saying, "I liked reading this, and maybe you will too". Just look at what Manny is saying on Twitter to learn more. If you see all those funny letters and numbers together, that is a link to an article, blog post, or other website.

HA! My daughter put a TV in the spare room she and the girls are in, that is where THEY watch cartoons and movies. :)
Sorry for your situation. Can we get Visa's pronto?

All my labs came back really good. All normal and on the low.normal side too. EXCEPT...that *&$#@ has gone up. So, I am working on that. I think I have to make some insulin adjustments. Ugh.

Do you mean the gulags....I'm sorry. They were a form of (futile)hard labour camps in communist Russia, for anyone who may have ruffled the feathers of the "powers that be". Read "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" by Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Powerful. Which is also what sent Solzhenitsyn to hard labour in the gulags, as a means of censorship.

Oh least you get to see your grandchildren often, right? Although, you are right. It is your home.

I better get my ass to bed now. I think the coffee I took this morning is finally wearing off, LOL.
Goodnight Doris...and Happy Valentines =)

Doris - don't delete too many things! sometimes when I'm really missing Sandy, I go back to her page and look at some of the things she wrote, and I feel her with me (I can't believe it's almost a year since she's gone!)

Can't decide what we're doing today - Ed just put in a load of laundry, so I guess we'll be doing that for a while. my hand is bothering me again. #bgnow 168

Thank you, My son Anish is 9 years old. He was diagnosed after Christmas. I am still under shock. Anish does not mind the finger pricks, he does not like the shots , especially Lantus at night. Looking forward to get a pump.
