Boy I feel like I could just lie down and sleep for a couple days, I've been having to get up at 2, 4, 6 to take blood sugars because of my noontime sugars being high. I have to do this for 4 days, not every day, but still, every other day is enough. and I'm supposed to switch and do it at 1, 3, 5, 7...I don't know if I'm ready for that, but I have to in order to get it straightened out. I wish, sometimes, I'd kept my old pump, it wasn't until I switched to the new one (same exact settings for everything) that my blood sugars went screwy.

Oh well, hopefully soon. The weather isn't bad, but wow, the wind is really blowing. After the storms that went through last night, I would have thought it'd go down. I'm just hoping while Rick's gone the electricity doesn't go out, because I'm not sure I can get that generator going, and I need to in order to keep the water from coming into the basement. What a pain, can't we just stop the rains and get on with it?

I'm not looking forward to the weather this weekend, because if there's even a hint of rain, we won't have many riders on the HOG ride for the playground. I'm praying for good rain...let's just hope it comes through.

Have a great day, everyone! emoticon

    I am not sure about diabetes and how all that works but i hope you get it down. I did here that cinnamon helps. Just remember your day will be what you make it. Its all up to you. Nothing or no one can decided what kind of day you will have. Also maybe you need some iron?

    I know how bad one can feel when not sleeping. It is miserable. Hope the weather clears up in time for ride.

Wow, I would have swore....

Monday, April 29, 2013

I'd posted a blog for yesterday, was I that busy I forgot..I need an instant note to pop up to remind me I guess.

Anyways, today I tried a new walking video, this one was 21 minutes instead of 14, so I had an extra 7 minutes. It wasn't too bad at all, I did it first instead of the core exercises and weight exercises, and I don't feel too bad. I can tell I'd exercised more, but that's alright, I'll take it. :)

It looks like rain again today, had a couple good days, and am hoping and praying next Saturday is nice, but so far looks like light rain in the morning...I'm hoping it's EARLY morning, like 6 am, because then for the harley ride it'll be over and done with. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

UPDATE: My daughter came home and said that last night, around 10 pm, she and her bf heard the weirdest sound outside the house (they're in the country) and it sounded like a black bear. They're rare around there, and it's kind of early, and she said the sound she heard was more drawn out than other bear sounds, so now we're confused as to what it is. I've got a call into the DNR to see what they think. She found something similar to it on
2c at :57 seconds. I think if I'd heard that I'd be afraid too, even their dog was scared. Imagine that!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, I have so much to do, but I'll return, never fear. :D

Bridal Showers and visitations

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Wow, what a mixture of things today, my daughter, Brande, and I were busy. A friend of ours from church passed away unexpectedly (to think last Saturday I was talking to her and shaking her hand and she was as joyful as ever). She'd gone to church in Edgerton and on the way home, she was found in her car in the field (across the road from the lady she used to sit with in church). They took her to the hospital and couldn't figure out what was wrong, and found bleeding in the back of the brain. They said, at first, an aneurism, but finally decided it was a stroke, she died 2 days later. She was such a cheerful, loving lady, and will be missed.

Right after we had my neices bridal shower, much happier and got to finally get the rest of the christmas gifts to everyone; the family missed christmas because everyone was too busy. anyway, it was nice to finally meet her fiancee, and we had a great time. emoticon

Computer video acting up...but I kept going!

Friday, April 26, 2013

Wow, today I think was the longest I've done, I take that back, but it sure seemed that way. Every 20 seconds the video was stopping for another 20 seconds, but I kept doing the exercise that was going on at the time. I finally gave up and restarted my computer and the modem and it seemed to work fine after that, plus I'd downloaded an update on Java. But I managed to do an extra 5 minutes of exercise through that..not sure if that's good or bad, because my calves hurt already. *L*

Anyway, my daughter and her bf have been packing up her stuff to move her all day today, my alarm didn't go off this morning..what a day it's been, I'm hoping it gets better, let's keep our fingers crossed.

Well I hope you have a great day, and remember to smile...I am! emoticon

Wow, this is the first time, I think, I've sweated this much during exercise..of course I have a sweatshirt on and long underwear top, but I've worn those before. Maybe it's because I tried the core and weight exercise standing up today for the first time, and did the walking exercise (1 mile aerobic walk) first. It's hard to tell, but you know what, it actually feels good. I think I'll try it this way every day.

My daughter's bf and her started packing up her things to move to his place last night, not sure how I feel about it because I'm so used to doing things with her, and finding out how her classes are going, and she's moving about 20 miles away. (His parents let him use a house they have which is just up the road from them, he works for his dad), so it's not like I'll be seeing her everyday, which I'll miss. But I'm fine with it, now she's responsible for everything, or I should say, they are, because she's down to 1 part time job (she had two, but with school it got too hard to handle.) I did tell them, however, that they're not moving the pregnant mare until the baby is born, because I won't get to see it otherwise. :D Not with how long my husband works, and the price of gas. I'm sure things will work out for the good because God never gives us anything more than we can handle, right?

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful day, and enjoy the sunshine! emoticon

    I am sure she feels the same way. There is also Skype , phone and i am sure they will visit. I find my daughter and i have a better relationship now as when she lived here. This just might bring you even closer then you already are!

    20 miles isn't that far away. I am sure you will see her a lot.
