My blood glucose level was 220 this morning. It has never been that high.
Was it the bottle of wine I drank last night?
Also, it wasn't fasting blood glucose. I'd only had 4 hoursof sleep. But, it's never been that high.
So, today with my blood glucose level fresh in my mind, I am going to go weigh in. I am thinking .... 245.
Then a friend from bookclub bought me 15 jazzercise classes at the zumba studio we go to. Wasn't that nice? It was a shock and nice.
I have to honestly say that I understand why I am feeling just plain these days.
I got in a huge fight with my Father during which he accused me of going through his financial papers (a scenario that is highly unlikely). He also called me a b*tch. All of which caused me to lose my marbles in a spectacularly apocalyptic way. Not sure why people think we have to wait for the 4 horsemen.
But .... it appears revisionist history has already set in and he does not recall calling me a b*tch. He does not recall me hyperventilating next to him in the car as we were going 70 down I10. He doesn't recall me demanding to be taken home.
It seems I will have to forgive him. He doesn't even recall what he did.
To be fair, I ended up having my say, and being as ugly as anyone could possibly be, later on in the 3 hour car ride from hell. I'm sure he remembers that part.
But, who is the idiot here? Someone who expects a 74 year old man to act differently or a 74 year old man who can't relate to people?
Ah. Okay. That would make us all losers.
I got the results from the writing contest I entered. I carry them around with me. I got an 84, 89, and a 67. I am not bothered by the 67. I think I did really very well for entering my first writing contest. I like to read the comments.
I spent a good deal of these last few weeks getting ready for Christmas and getting things in order for the New Year. I am all ready for Christmas except for stocking gifts. I am making Paella on Christmas Eve becuase I am working 12 hours on Christmas Day. I've organized my filed - I made a list of all my goals for 2014 by category - I've enrolled in classes & priced my books - I've made a schedule.
I also have 2 weeks vacation starting on my birthday 12/31 - New Years Eve ... in case you didn't realize ... LOL
But ... 220 huh?
It seems I have learned to take my diabetes for granted. I must take it seriously again. No more white food for me.
Happy Holidays everyone! I intend to enjoy myself - healthily of course. No more wine.
