Hello Summer!

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Or it will be here any day now and the temps are sure showing it. They finally turned the AC on at my job which is nice, I was kinda dreading going and it being off. Our work cat G is knows where to be when it reaches 90 outside in a 1200 dollar chair of course.

I have a whole new pet peeve, somehow recently I keep acquiring diabetic friends. Neither of which really care to control with eating well, health and exercise. It's so frustrating to watch. Both of them are losing their eye sight from neglecting signs. You can feel bad for someone for so long and listen to them complain about how sick they are. Then watch them eat donuts, always be carrying a large pop from Mcdonalds and smoking. It's too personal of a matter to mention, I know that. I just seems like common sense. I could have easily become diabetic at the weight I was at. I know people have to wanna change. It's just so frustrating to watch someone shortening their life before your very eyes. I can understand if you were diabetic for so long and so many restrictions have been put on you.But people do lose weight and get better. I would hope they would wanna feel better.

My baby sexing date got moved up 3 days. So now we find out 1 week from Friday! I am so ready to know so that we can start actually planning. Plus I can stop fighting my mom on what the gender is. Healthy baby is all we want. I went in for a doppler on Monday and she found the heartbeat ASAP. Starting to pop out a little more. Yesterday morning after my 5 am dance class.

Still been super active with work and exercise. Averaging about 14k steps a day right now. Today might throw me I didn't wake up for my dance class this morning. Eating has been good, hardly craving any meat this trimester. Craving tomato sandwiches like no ones business and kraft mac and cheese? lol and also watermelon. Scott keeps trying to get me to take Iron cuz my prenatal has none. I have always heard unless your doctor tells u take Iron, you shouldn't take Iron. I eat a lot of spinach and broccoli, I would rather get natures Iron.

For Fathers Day I finally found a tree for my dad. Scott's aunt has wanted to buy a tree for our yard for my dad since he passed 11 months ago. I picked out a Tricolored Beech, it was one of his favorites. Scott and his dad planted it for me on Fathers Day. It was so nice of them.

Oh yes and Joel helped as well.

I better get the dogs out on a walk before it reaches 90. Better bring some water for them. Have a good weekend everybody!

    Looking good! Great pic! Ya, taking iron isn't very enjoyable. I had to take it even after I switched to a prenatal with iron. What's funny is I couldn't find a gummy prenatal with iron in it. I hated the horse pills. I ended up only taking the iron every other day.

    I love the tree!

    I can totally relate to your frustrations because I'm living that little bit of HELL right now. I hate watching my husband slowly kill himself. :(

    aww you look so cute! :)

    You're so right- your friends have to realize it themselves... But still frustrating to witness.

    Hubby doesn't have air conditioning in his department where he works. They work in a metal building. It makes for a miserable day. His new employee has already offered to supply an air conditioner if the boss will allow it. I hope he does.

    I love G!! She/he has good taste. That is a beautiful display at your store.

    Re your diabetic friends. I find it hard to watch people kill themselves slowly. I saw it too much as a nurse. People who had both legs cut off. Ended up on dialysis. Obviously they don't want to get better and live. Maybe they like being dependent and the center of negative attention.

    We never did get to find out what sex our son was. LOL. We didn't get any pink stuff though.

    I would only take what my doctor prescribed. You eat right and are healthy.

    So cool about the tree. I have a memorial garden for my family - part for my mom, part for my MIL, part for my FIL. It's great that they did this for you and that Joel helped.

    There are lots of diabetics out there now. The trick is to control it. Eye sight isn't the only risk, but one of many. Perhaps you can come up with a "make believe friend". Tell them about him or her with their diabetes out of control and you are so worried about neuropathy. blindness and amputation happening to them, not to mention heart problems and kidney problems. Might be a wake up call for them, especially if they don't know the extent of the consequences of diabetes.
