good for you. maybe now your washer and dryer will get a rest too. we went to the store today, and when we got back the ladybugs were all over the skylight. He didn't even take his coat off before he was up on the ladder! ha!

now my fridge is full of food. he's going to Boston later this week to show off his new salsas and dips, so the company sent 2 humongous coolers full of the stuff, which has to be kept refrigerated. some of it we get to keep here and eat ourselves.

yeah, that breakfast lasted me almost all day. Ed's already been vacuuming - he hates it when they fly by him brazenly. they like to come out on the sunny days like today. I have no idea how they get in, because we have this place sealed up tighter than Dick's hatband (as my father would say).

looks like we're in for another batch of snow tonight. my quilting class has been cancelled for tomorrow - boohoo

Hi Doris! Thanks for the note! I'm doing fine... had a great blood sugar week, which was ruined this weekend! Had a stubborn high yesterday that lasted all night. Changing the infusion set didn't even seem to help ... ah well should be down by now.

Hope that you get that long, far-far-away vacation that you are hoping for :) Or even just some help around the house!!!!!!!!!

How are you doing today, Doris? We just had some nice bacon and eggs. Ed put some sauteed mushrooms and swiss cheese in the eggs. oops, I hear him now, vacuuming up ladybugs! He's like that Bill Murray character in Caddyshack the way he hates them! He keeps a gigantic ladder in the living room so he can get up and vacuum them off the skylights! it's pretty funny.

I got it from the Coxsackie virus, it took close to a year before I slipped into a coma, went into cardiac arrest, the docs used the jumper cables (my BS was 985), I was 8. I was told that diabetics DON'T have children. This was reiterated at Camp Firefly. I thought I'd grow up and have cats and plants, but now have 2 boys, Derek will be 17 in June, and Alex will be 14 in April. I appreciate every day, because you never know if your BS will drop so low that you can't recover. My lowest was 11. I'm now asymptomatic to lows which is scary. I'll write more when I have time, LOL....I'm so sorry you went through all that crap with the transplant. I'll write back soon!

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!
At 6:56pm on February 13, 2010, Loh said…
Seriously... eat a cake isnt that bad! lol Don't worry!
How are you today?
At 6:50pm on February 13, 2010, Teena said…
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!
At 6:34pm on February 13, 2010, Teena said…
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?
At 2:51pm on February 13, 2010, Marie B said…
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!
At 12:49pm on February 13, 2010, Marie B said…
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?
