Thanks Doris!! Actually, I never saw the question to what you did for a living as offensive...I think it helps us in guiding new comers to various groups or discussions! My sense is, if you find it probing, well...sheesh....don't answer it lol The same when they don't indicate if they are male or female...or which country they're from!!
As fo the first question, I think that can be answered with a simple yes or no! I think because pre-diabetes is considered technically diabetes by some (At least is a pre-cursor to diabetes anyway!!)
Shall I groan and moan? My legs ached all night. Is it the heat? the humidity? What? I see the orthopedic surgeon today at one. I bet he says OLD AGE Lol. Good to have you back Doris. We missed you. How are things? Did you readings spike or stay good. Someone is punishing us 24th day of high 90's and a high heat index. I hope you are keeping cool and taking it slow and easy. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Thanks for the birthday wishes. People here on TuD are so kind. Hugs to your daughter, too. I'm 55 today, so she'll have to run fast to catch up with me. Better yet, tell her to enjoy every moment. No hurry. ;0)
Hi Doris-Your g-daughters' earrings are very nice. My daughter dragged me to get hers and mine done when she was 5. I have been busy taking care of my husband since Monday. He had cataract surgery on 1 eye and will have the other one done next week. Hope you are doing well and it has cooled off for you.
Ha ha...too funny!!! It's weird how we get hooked isn't it?? I'm the same way....I'm on this for hours on a daily basis....I'll have to wean myself off before I go back to school....or I'll have to wear a patch lol No worries about the new members, but I think we'll have to be diligent about keeping an eye open for those who are out of sink. Some are as far down as 2 rows as the rest of their "pack"....as well, we've had some odd balls coming on, with no info other than their "name". How are ya anyway....the break away was good?
Take care kiddo,
Glad you are back. We had a heavy rain but it did not break the heat. Is is 96 right now and humid. TOPS today. I stayed the same. The Program was on the Value of Apples...she gave each of us apples. I am going to try the Microwave Baked apples. My legs not good. I see the orthopecic doctor tomorrow. My BG 118..I will takje it. Stay cool. HUGS,Reed
Hey Doris....fellow grandma! I truly admire your stamina, in that you are brave enough to take on ALL your grandkids at once!!! I wish!!
In greeting new members, I came across
these new members' pages that are out of sequence; Blagoj Doncev...Page 2
and Luka on page 1. So far it is only I who has greeted them...wonder if you can stop by and spread a little of your sunshine, to truly make them feel welcome?
Also..... Lisa ADA of page 1 ...she has a child with D
Blagoj Doncev will soon be on page 3.
Hello Doris. What can I tell you. We still have the heat. I do not know where Emily went she did not come here. I just got home from church. We had a visting priest from Ireland had to strain to hear him. I know there is nothing that can be done but my legs are killing me...OLD AGE. My readings are good as I hope yours are. Keep cool. HUGS.Reed
Hello Doris. You living? Isn't this weather awful? They say 97 today with a heat index of 105. Where is it coming from. I heard Texas has had 34 straight days over 100. It makes you not to want to do anything. I must get to the meat market today as Tom comes tonight and he EATS LOL. I finally got the laundry done. My leg ok today. I see the orthopedic doctor Thursday so will ask him about it. It seems so funny not to have Marie around. I hope she does not get too depressed about the home situation. You still baby sit now and then. And your Grandmother lives in this heat without A/C? My Grandmother used to say SHUT THAT DANG THING OFF.they were funny. Have a great day. HUGS,Reed
Hi Doris. Still hot here. Tropical storm hanging around...EMILY...we might get some action Saturday. I hope it does not turn into a hurricane, I gained 1./4 pound at TOPS. I needed to. I found out these ladies do not believe in doggy bags THEY EAT IT ALL> Still hot and humid. I am weary. My left leg and ankle acting up again..Thursday it was TRhursday last week. I hope it is not going to be a weekly event. Take good care of yourself and KEEP COOL. Hugs,Reed
