I love the quiet too... Its best you talk to your daughter... it is also not fair on your side. You should have some house rules too...and assigned responsibilities on who is going to do what and when. maybe you spoiled your daughter too much?

Ill be back later Doris... Mom is ready and we will go out for awhile for lunch. I made some reservations in a nice cozy restaurant by the bay here. Sea foods (Mom's favorite!) Ill see you later ok? Hang in are strong woman!

Oh! I will read it now. Amazing what we can do when we are with quality "ME" time, right? Peace and quiet huh... I like the sound of that!

Yup...just came from Church. About to leave with Kyle and Mom in awhile. Waiting for her dress up. The church is jammed packed today with couples in red....LOL. I find that so corny! Oh well...t each his own. There are dragon dance in the streets too. How did your day went?

yeah, I couldn't get her - my mom said she lost power and they went to the Marriot - I guess that's not bad!

oh doris, you know when you update your "status" at the top of your page? see that little "t" underneath and the check-box? check the box and your update will show up on your Twitter page. be sure to use the hashtag "#bgnow" if you're reporting your bg at the moment (see my page) and mention @tudiabetes whenever you can

I hope so too for you Doris. I asked Manny when we should receive the avalanche of new members after being noticed by Mashable, and he said we only got a few new members out of all that buzz. go figure.

I hope you can at least relax a little now. There's nothing quite like a crying baby to make you go nuts! I gotta go change my infusions set now and then I forgot to call my sister it's her birthday.

oops, sorry Doris, missed it, but I would have gotten around to it, because I subscribe to the feed for TuD, so I don't miss very much. I've just been gone all day. I hope you and K have some plan for tomorrow!

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.
At 12:02pm on February 13, 2010, Robyn said…! LOL Mine best clean up after themselves or Mom/Grandma is not a nice person. I can be a mean woman......I trained them very young, kinda like my animals. 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?
At 11:25am on February 13, 2010, Robyn said…
I am one step ahead of you oldest daughter and the grand-kids are living back with me too....only 2-3 days per week and every other weekend. I am going to runaway too.......Mexico and change my name and identity. :)
At 10:54am on February 13, 2010, Robyn said…
A vacation far away? Let's go! I want to go where nobody will find me :) LOL

Hello! Well, I am trying to getr well, I have a nasty ear infection and the glands in my throat are infected too....ugh. Feeling better today. Yea! antibotics and motrin. 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. Oh well, just part of the game huh? LOL We have sunshine! Did I say sunshine? YES. Hope all is well for you and the family. Have a good weekend and Valentines Day. Robyn xo

I will! Thanks - for the info and for keeping my secret...LOL

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.

Thanks again! HUGS!!! XOXO <3

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 =)
