Not sure what it is yet, but my doctor is concerned about the possibility of acute pancreatitis. There is also the possibility of a lupus flare up. And I am running a nasty fever on one of the hottest days we have had this year. Can you tell ... Read more

I read a great quote today about not making assumptions about what other people are thinking or feeling. It said to "find the courage" to ask the questions that you need to ask to find out what is really going on and to "express what you really... Read more

I am in a holding pattern on the medical stuff. So I am focused on walking the dog, and talking to my friends and family. I went for a short run today. Tomorrow is another day. I am practicing denial about my own situation. I re... Read more

I am still getting used to having the ability to take pictures again. So far most of my pictures are of my dog, Cooper. As it should be. He has been my constant companion for over 6 years now. He can alternate between sweet and consoling... ... Read more

My niece flew in last night. When we were chatting online last week we talked about how much more fun it is to cook in larger amounts and with someone else. And I have been posting recipes like crazy. Last night we decided to make an attempt ... Read more

I had the glucose tolerance test yesterday morning. Basically, they make you sick, and check to see how sick, and test your blood every hour to see how fast you recover or if you recover. My doctor had ordered some extra tests to be done... o... Read more

Today (very early this morning) I have to go for a 4 hour glucose tolerance test... plus other testing... but that is the big one. From what I gather, they force you into hypoglycemia (give you sugar water to spike and crash your glucose or som... Read more
What we intend vs. results
Wednesday, September 06, 2017      17 comments

I have been thinking a lot about intention vs results... primarily in relation to the spoken word, but it also relates to nutrition and exercise goals... just on a different slant... So, the idea started percolating in my brain when somethi... Read more

The responses I have gotten to yesterday's blog (whiny complaint) about my blood sugar were interesting. So maybe I need to give my Sparkfriends a bit more background on the situation? I am a Type 2 diabetic... I was diagnosed a bit over 10 ye... Read more

I have been tracking my blood glucose readings and they seem to go down an hour after eat, and go up the longer I go without food. That seems so weird to me. It got down into the mid 60s the other night which got me anxious, because I have bee... Read more

Friday, September 01, 2017      14 comments

The past couple of days have been busy and stressful, so tonight and tomorrow I am dedicating to fun things. Enjoyable time "wasters". The things that feed my soul, but have no real purpose otherwise. I have a hair appointment next week, and ... Read more
So much space!
Wednesday, August 30, 2017      19 comments

So, the elliptical is gone now, and with the love seat also gone the space is just so much more OPEN. I think I am going to save up and get a second recliner though so that I have somewhere comfortable for a guest to sit. I rarely get more tha... Read more
