I went to the doctor last December and he put me on a new med to lower my blood sugars. I didn't want to hear about that. I didn't do anything to change things. In a couple of weeks I go back to redo the lab work. I am not confident that things ... Read more

Yesterday my husband and I took the bikes out for a ride. We went 4.5 miles. Not long for some but I was sweating. It felt good. It was a nice day to get out. I enjoyed it. Would go again. Came back to have a slow cooked chicken. Did real g... Read more

I had my parents over last night for supper to celebrate my son's 17 birthday. Usually I would have eaten my way through the night. I was a little concerned last night because we recently borrowed some money from my parents and was afraid... Read more

Buckle down
Saturday, June 12, 2010      4 comments

As a kid my Dad use to tell me "You need to buckle down". As a kid that was an insult to hear that. It meant he thought I wasn't doing enough. In what he was talking about then, I still think it was an insult, in that case I was doing the best I... Read more
