April Awesome #3

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

I'm going M.I.A. "ish' for a couple of days. Spock is on vacation. Tonight I whisk him away to celebrate his _ _th birthday.
April Awesome#3 is that I get to share a 2 person jacuzzi with my man. Last year that would not have been a possibility. He would have had to wait his turn. I'll share this year.

I sense a little romance in the air. You are too funny saying that he would have had to wait his turn to get in the jacuzzi last year! Have fun in that jacuzzi built for two!

April Awesome #2 Blood Glucose Victory

Tuesday, April 03, 2012



This morning out of the corner of my eye as I was digging for a teeny sugar bowl (oddly enough) to adorn the Tea Party table of my 4 year old daughter, I saw the once ominous black package.

Lemme tell you about it.

The black package is the Blood Glucose Monitor that I bought on the sly. Last year I worked as the church's secretary. I was being paid a meager amount for my part-time work, full-time effort and I was at the beginning of my SparkJourney. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am a chronic migraine sufferer and I was seeking professional intervention of which I am now pleased to say I have obtained and now have preventative medication that has restored my life to me. Back then though I was grasping at straws trying to figure out what was going on. I have a history of diabetes in my family and I was being encouraged to seek help when I was passing out behind the wheel while driving on the 400 series highway with our 5 children. This was more than migraine was the general consensus.

Problem was that we were in transition with health care providers. No one wanted to take on a family our size. No one wanted to be held liable for tests not followed up, etc. I was ignored. Lupus was tossed around because my Dad had passed at 46 from complications and my younger sister(s) have been tested for it. Nothing was followed up. It just was left.

I was annoyed and feeling like a hypochondriac. I scrimped my pennies and bought a Glucose Monitor and educated myself about proper levels. I now have a Health Care provider, but, now I've chunked off 65lbs and I am in healthy range.

April Awesome Celebration #2
My fasting Glucose last year was in the 6.8-7.2 range today's 5.2 is the highest (healthy is 4-6).

BOOYAH SparkPeople is emoticon emoticon

EDIT:
April Awesome #1 Left a literal impression;

    I've never seen a glucometer measure blood sugar that way. Must be a Canadian thing?

Hooping with your knees did that? Was that the weighted hoop?

Hoopy Thingy
I wanted to eat the fridge. It wanted me to too.
Instead of eating the fridge or slapping the rude secretary I was dealing with I picked up a hoop for anger and anxiety management.
Go me.
April, we will make this AWESOME.

April: You will be SO AWESOME!

Monday, April 02, 2012

It helps that the sun is shining and the kids are giggling and my brain is not in so much pain it's trying to escape my tear ducts, BUT, I am HIGH ON LIFE and CHARTING AWESOME my friends.
HERE WE GO!

This month I will:
*make my own WOAH NELLY! I hafta. I just gotta play with a weighted hoop that sings to me as I boogy. I'm dumping last nights attempt. I think the rocks clogged my efforts. Possibly Gigantor was right. Again. Gr.
*Dance nekked in the rain (wait I'm waiting for old age to get away with that one). So, darling sweet husband you're gonna hafta STOP praying to die first to avoid being the spouse left-behind just to live long enough to watch all of our relatives die of embarassment. I plan on driving around our neighbourhood in our supped up flame striped hummer while streaking as well. Cuz, I'm cool like dat.
*eat spaghetti from one plate with my husband with big o' meatballs! Like in the movie Lady & The Tramp. All Romantic like. It's his birthday this month and as a kid that scene was the MOST romantic thing like EVER!!!
*sign my kids up for prison (a.k.a school, me freedom)
*vlog daily even though my last two buddies confessed boredom to tears
*paint one room (the right colour) The boys will be freed from Peptobysmol pink walls yet!
*order Summer Bridge school work (not so "rocking fun) BUT in the end it's a blessing.


More to come, but, I smell coffee and I am making a To-DO list for today which includes dive-rolling through the hoop outside IF the snow melts and the ground dries up enough.

Ahhhhhhhh....life is so awesome.

(I'm going to keep adding as I go...)

    Yay, I"m going to make my list too!! I meant to do it yesterday...but...umm...shopping got in the way! haha OMG, I did the nekked in the yard thing when we moved here! rofl. In the summer the trees are so thick you can't see the neighbors and I hope the dogs would let me know if anyone approached. If you want to house sit here while I run away, you could do all kinds of weird stuff. Heck you could use the trampoline nekked....wait, OUCH....that wouldn't work. haha

    You do not need much to weight it, 1 cup rice should be enough. Having something to move around as you circle it around is enough. I think it's important to use the same type of thing in it, not a bunch of different things.. because it will get clogged.. which seems to have happened. interesting experiment, though!

    Wasn't sure if I was gonna make it. My head was doing the bob. I am tired tonight. Love the fun noise the hoop made after you put things in it.

I like the idea of a glow in the dark one also. They sale the glow in the dark tape also.
