My Friday.....

First things first......

All of my friends that have posted encouraging comments, prayers, and notes of caring..... BIG HUG your direction! You are all an awesome group of friends and TY!

Woke with a headache today. I know it's a combination of tiredness and stress. I have a full schedule today and none of it is my schedule. Have to take hubby to work so my daughter can use her car for work, take mom to the hair house to get her DO done, take the hubby his forgotten lunch, pick up my other daughter and her 2 yr. old so they can help me take mom to buy groceries, take mom home and drop her and her 360.00 worth of HEAVY groceries off, take said daughter home so she can go after her other 3 children at the bus stop, eat a snack for my busting headache and grumpy diabetic low sugar count, pick up said forgotten hubby quickly at work, do the dishes, clean the living room, and then plan dinner to clean up later.

So yesterday in the middle of our busy day one of my daughters mentioned that I might want to consider buying some of the small LUNCHABLES to carry around in my diabetic snack kit. Well OK THEN..... that goes to show you how well my brain functions now. I see my grandchildren eating them all the time and STILL the thought never crossed my mind :/ And before anyone points it out, I know they are higher in salt then the stuff I could make myself but lets face it, I am tired my friends and taking time to actually fix my own lunchables is probably NOT going to happen at this stage in my life. But TY for caring enough to think about reminding me

So today I have that (hungry-smaller) feeling today. Ever had those? It's were your sitting there and think to yourself: Wow my stomach FEELS small this morning :)
Now if I can get over this tired brain fog feeling I might have a fairly nice day ......

    Sounds like you are taking care of everyone, except yourself. That can lead to big problems. Can any of these people you drive around, regularly bring you a snack? chris

    Go for the lunchables if it'll help. Yep sounds like a very busy day - I hope you have time for relaxation this weekend! Take care of yourself!

    I think if using Lunchables so you can stay on track and it fits in your calories count go for it. We need to do what we can for yourself to stay on track. You know yourself and if you are not going to be able to make your own buy them. Best of luck I think that I might check out the Lunchables and see if I can fit them into my food plan.

    Lunchables would be great if they'd make em with lower fat and sodium stuff. When
    I pack my lunch for school, I take stuff like grape tomatoes and sweet mini peppers, baby carrots, celery sticks - and a couple fruits, like apple, oragne, tangerine, or banana. For protein I pack a couple of low fat string cheese, or a no-salt peanut butter sandwich on some kind of whole grain bread. I know with diabetes one has to be more careful about carbs. I pray for the wisdom you need to keep blood sugar stable. Blessings on the road to a healthy lifestyle.
