Nina, I had been eating quite a bit of sugary things, really since Thanksgiving. So I think my body just kind of went out of whack...so to speak.
Seem to feel fine today. though a bit tired, who knows whether that is the bs or the fibro...
Last night I had oatmeal with raw sugar and walnuts. That seemed to help. I had it around 9 pm. but I will continue to put on weight if I have to eat at bedtime all the time...oh it is a viscious circle. Patty
THANKS FOR THE QUICK REPLY ON MY SOUR CREAM BISCUITS
PATTY, I hate those sugar lows. I call them crashes. I am diabetic and when I do not eat on time it happens. I carry granola bars with me. STRESS-causes crashes too. Good or bad stress. Shopping causes me to stress, that is why the granola bars.
The diabetic medication bottle said to take it in the morning. I do not eat as much during the day, so I started taking it in the evening at supper time. That works well as long as I have a snack 1 1/2-2 hours later. Also my supper is my main meal and I make sure I have 2 starches then and 1 1/2 carbs at snack.
When we are able to get a place, and I can do my own cooking, I plan on eating much smaller amounts every 3 hours. I read this from one of MAGNOLIAHONEY replys. Hope you are able to experiment and figure it out.
Also if it is really bad about 1/4 can of sugar soda works really fast to bring mine up. I hate real soda-but sometimes I have to take desperate measures.
This disorganization is also the reason I have gained so much by not paying attention to organizing my diet and then having to eat something quickly that is too many carbs to get blood sugar back up. SORRY WROTE A BOOK.
LOUISE-glad the tooth thing is over. Maybe the year is like March comes in like a lion goes out like a lamb.
SARAH- It has been in the high 60's here in Marysville, Ca where my daughter lives. It is cloudy here today a little. Hope we get rain, they really need it.
JAN-hope you have fun with your projects today. You all have a great day!
Good Morning, I'm on the computer early, paying some bills. Tax time you know and I must also pay my mothers property taxes. I can't believe how high hers are. $799.00 for one quarter. They have gone way up since she passed away.
Louise, I'm surprised your dentist didn't send you to a specialist to remove the remains of your tooth. At least my dentist here does. I know you are glad that is over.
Patty, don't brag on your milder weather too much, I know even March back east can be darn cold. Our warm days are on the down turn now. The ocean waves have been huge to the delight of the surfers.
Jan, I can still picture Loretta Young coming through the door with her skirt swirling.
DH has gone back to DS house for his third day of waiting for the cable guy. It was a no show yesterday. I think AT&T owes DS a free month of service, maybe two. Yesterday DH came home with a new 19" HG television. I asked him what that was for and he said to replace the AC/DC one on the file cabinet so I could watch all the cable shows while we eat dinner. Now we never watch TV while we eat. I was so irritated with him. We have more bills to pay in Jan. than any other month plus the RV repairs he had had done will come due. He is generally not one to make rash purchases so I didn't say as much as I could have. I hope he decides to take it back. As light weight as the thin ones are, I'd be afraid if some one shut the file cabinet hard it could topple over.
It's 34, cold and foggy. DH is going out so I'm going to dig into some projects today. I have to focus on one thing at a time.
I've been watching old Loretta Young movies on TCM this morning. I used to really like her. She had a television program for awhile where she'd come through a door and swing around to shut it and her skirt swirled- I thought she was so elegant!
Patty, I'm glad you got through that blood sugar low. They do make you feel awful.
Louise, Glad you got your tooth taken care of. I agree with Sarah - things have to look up from here on in.
Sarah, Glad it warmed up where you are. I know you aren't used to the cold. Everyone who comes here from Arizona say they are cold when we think it's hot. Lol.

Sarah, Thank You for praying! I just know 2012 will get better. It is cooling down here. Well, OK, cooling down for this part of Arizona. Last week we hit in the 80's and I was enjoying it. This coming week it will be in the 60's. I know that sounds warm to a lot of you but when the summers are in the 100's the 60's are cold! I want the heat! I honestly don't mind warm and hot weather. At least the sun is out!
It is on the warm up here! Right now I think it is in the mid 60's. Weather-wise this has been a strange year.
Patty I'm so glad you are feeling better. It must seem odd not to have bunches of snow this time of year. Enjoy the time at Senior center and with your Mom
Louise it must really feel like like your year is starting out on the wrong foot! I'm so sorry to hear you had such a rough dentist visit. Made me cringe thinking about it. All this will pass ans your year will look up! You are in my prayers.
Hope everyone else is doing good. Ann I'm ready to come over for Snickers, ok Snickers salad! That does sound good.
Have a blessed day all!
Just feels like a balloon kind of day!
Catch Ya Later Sarah firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Patty and all who will follow! Patty, I am glad you got your blood sugar under control. Having low blood sugar attacks are no fun! My blood sugar and blood pressure have been on the high side lately. I think I know why. I am not sure if I mentioned it but about a day after the fall I took one of my teeth fell out. I was going to have a root canal done on that tooth but the fall must have loosen it. Anyway part of it was still in. I went to the dentist yester and the poor man had a horrible time getting the rest of it out. The roots were way in and it took an hour for him to get it out. Then during the night I had a bad reaction to the novacaine. I seem to be doing a little better. I think that is why my blood pressure is high but not sure why my blood sugar is high as I could not eat anything yesterday. 2012 does not seem to be my year! Prayerfully it will be the year I lose a lot of weight. Well, I am just taking it easy today.
Do you girls realize that winter is almost half over. What is today, the 6th, of Jan, we have 5 months of winter, and we are almost half done. Everyone s aid that it would be a hard winter. Not so far. I see some bare ground still it is 47 here in nlm. can you imagine. gray skies trying to turn blue...
yesterday I had such a terrible day. My blood sugar got real low during the night, woke up completely drenched on the top half of my body. took all day to get it right, not until last night did I feel any better. slept well last night.
