nope, guess I can't! you can read all about our adventure this morning on Reed's page. all I can say is my husband is a genius. I never could have figured out how to syphon the water out of the back basement with a garden hose. it was threatening to ruin my entire fabric collection! I guess I could have carried it all upstairs. I think I'll take a shower now that we have running water again.
Hi there, I was in that earthquake, and it was funny. It sounded like a big train and everything in my office shook a lot. It lasted quite a while and nothing got damaged and nobody got hurt so it was pretty much funny to watch all the silly people run around all scared and panicky. You are really supposed to stay inside and not leave the buildings, but they made us evacuate the building and everyone just stood by the walls, which was really dumb, because if it was a bad situation, most people get hurt by trying too leave a building and having the outside walls fall on them while they are doing it. Duh! Lots of emails flying about being unprepared once we got back in but at least we had a break and got some fresh air and no harm done.
So how is your weather? We are having hurricane weekend. It has just started to get rainy and windy now but I am going to try to go bowling at three and hope that I get back home before the really bad weather hits. I hope you had a good week? I was busy with work and learning this Spanish is time consuming. How has the D been treating you? I went to my NP for diabetes yesterday, ugh, that stresses me out. She always makes me feel like FAIL. I will get my tests back next week to see if I am still alive or not. I AM breathing so the chances of that are good. Lots.
Good Morning Doris. Irene is passing us by but we had 3 wicked showers yesterday. Toiday will be the hottest day of the year. HUMID it is terrible, I have an idiot living with me..I thibk you know him..TOM.. in this heat and humidity he ran 12 miles. He yelled the electric fru pan is down meaning he wants OJ 3 eggs 5 strips of vacn toast and tea. Running he lost 7 pounds. I think we will go to CAPS ON THE WAT for much. Right on the ocean and good foor. I hope no gkids today so you can get sime much needed rest. My BG 110. I will take it. You have a great day. Keep cool. Hugs,Reed
Hi Doris. Thank you for your kind welcome message. I am looking forward to learning a lot here on Tudiabetes. Already I have become more comfortable with my new situation thanks to posts on Tudiabetes.
I am getting ready for work so I need to stop back by your page and check out your new pictures. It looks like you put up some pretty awesome ones. Sorry to hear that you have to wait until Spring to take classes. Well, you have something really nice to look forward to anyway. If I were you I would go to the library and start checking out some books and CD's on different subjects. I am getting into the Spanish now and it is very involved. If you started now with it by the time Spring came you would have a good background knowledge of it and learning it in college would be easier. The hard part is learning gender because everything is mail and female. They have a lot of free Spanish courses on line too.
We did get hit with the earthquake while I was at work. It was really loud and shaky. Everyone freaked out but no one really got hurt. We rarely have stuff like that happen so we all had to evacuate the building and that is the worst thing to do in an earthquake.
So what are you up to this weekend? It is supposed to rain here because of the hurricane Irene. It is already looking a little ominous. Well, I will talk to you soon I hope. How did your hubby's MRI turn out? I hope he will be able to be helped to feel better. Lots.
Hello Doris. It is I. I could not sleep. I finally got up and did the birthdays. About midnight heavy rain and wind woke me up and I could noy get back to sleep. Yesterday,we drove to the pier and I never saw such huge waves..tis is how we will see Irene huge surf and beach erosion. I am doing well. Readings good. I hope you are too you had a good one yesterday morning. You have the gkids today? Has your hubby decided what to do about his back? I wonder if SUPARTZ would help 5 injections 1 a week for 5 weeks. Mu back was killing me and I tried it have not had a pain since. Have a great and take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Doris, I think I asked before why do people go Private> How do they get any information that way? I find in the members you do them and,then,someone sticks a new one in and that is how we miss them. I lost 1/2 pound. The doctor set my goal at 200 I am a litle over 6 feet and now weigh 197 under goal. We talked on Fad Diets like cabbage soup and Food Muths there is NO difference between brown and white eggs. I guess Irene wikll not be visiting us up North will get it. Hope all is well with you. Have a great daty and take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed
that big one that hit during the World Series was in San Francisco, it caused many freeways to go down and lots of fires too, many people lost their lives. We lived in Southern Cali at the time. The Northridge one I think happened in winter. Once we had a big one when Ed was at a conference in Newport Beach, not too far from where we lived. People from the midwest were there, and they all stayed at the same hotel. it hit in the middle of the night, and everyone poured out of the hotel in their pj's. one guy told Ed he was spending the night on the beach. Ed had to coax him back to his room, saying, "we hardly ever have one THAT big". so what happens next? a HUGE aftershock, as big as the original quake. the guy packed his bag, and spent the rest of the night on the beach! haha! bgnow 104
Doris, keep your college money separate, it's a great idea for you to go back to school.
We lived through many many very scary earthquakes in California. Ed and I think the hubbub over yesterday's is a hoot. The big Northridge earthquake was maybe 40 miles from our house. We have a very high 4 poster bed, and our 55 pound dog NEVER jumped on it, he couldn't do it. Well, I think that one happened at 5 in the morning. all of a sudden, Archie jumped on the bed, and right after, the house stated shaking so bad, a tv in the guest room fell off a chest of drawers onto the floor. Ed was screaming "earthquake" and we were just holding on to each other until it was over. When we turned on the tv, we saw all the freeways that fell down, and people in their cars stranded on overpasses that needed to be rescued by helicopter. a friend of mine was babysitting her grandkids very near the epicenter. she and her husband had a lot of trouble finding shoes to put on their feet to get out of the house strewn with glass from all the windows broken and dishes on the floor. ever since I always slept with a pair of old sneakers under my bed in case I had to do the same. between that and living through the worst tornado ever in Oklahoma, I have always kept emergency supplies handy.
Good Morning,Doris. I had to laugh. You do not answer the phone but they drop tem off anyway...you cannot win. I had a terrible night. I just could not sleep. Nothing on my mind. I hope it is just a one night thing. My BG 96. I will take it. Wondering what Irene is going to do. I will take rain but no wind. TOPS this morning. I just do the business part one of the members is doing the Program. I hope things are good with you. Take good care. What did hubby decide about his back? My best to him. HUGS,Reed Go to HOME look to the side Kristin put a photo of her handsome boy.
hi Doris, at least you can make sure you get all your i's dotted and t's crossed before enrolling in the spring. know what you have to do & fill out & when it's due and write it on your calendar.
my mom's back in the hospital with her diverticulosis, I think she'll get out tonight. that earthquake sure rattled her bed! my brother works at a hospital in Culpepper, much closer to the epicenter, I'll bet he felt it. hopefully he was out of the operating room when it hit.
So you have heard of Giving Tuesday, right? Maybe you have seen the hashtag: #GivingTuesday. If you are like me, confused by all of the messages pointing in different directions floating around social media, you may be wondering, “What is Read on! →
