Barb, hope your 1st day back at school is a success! Wow those kids with your winning personality --I know you will make it an emoticon year.

Well it's back to work after a 3 day weekend. Of course yesterday was busy for us. Kenny & I spend most of the day just riding to the river & state parks photographing nature. It was nice to get out but man was it ever hot, the humidity made it feel like 97. Afterwards, I put up 36 ears of corn in the freezer as well as 8 qt bags of creamed corn. I plan on picking up more corn today if it's still on sale, can't beat the price of 10 ears for $1.
Didn't sleep well last night, I guess the anxiety of a busy day at the office being closed yesterday & it was a holiday weekend so that means lots of accident reports & new car changes to be done. Well at least the blood sugar was good, I almost think someone needs to pinch me but it's not been this low (95) in months.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Donna B.

Hi everyone,
Today was a beautiful day~until I was on my way home from seeing Mom..I was on my bike and I got caught in a rainstorm..thankfully I went under a bridge, so I didn't get soaked. I had a nice visit with Mom. We even got to spend time outside (before the rain).
Tomorrow is school...I wish I was more excited..maybe it's because summer seemed so short. Maybe after I get there it will be better. I am going to be working with 150 5th graders....it will take me awhile to remember some of their names.
I hope everyone had a nice Labor Day. I will stop & say "Hi" tomorrow. Hope it is a good day for all of you!!

Barb, hugs for you as you face each new day with your mom & her health. Cherish each moment as you & hold those memories close. But one thing ---can you send me some of that cooler weather? Geez it's hot out here today, heat index is 97 & it sure feels like it.

Yesterday we had almost all of the family over for the cookout. Our youngest DD & one of our SILs didn't come. But we did get a group pic of the ones there & then one of just the grandkids.I think everyone had a good time. DH & I cleaned up all the mess before bedtime & actually got to sleep in this morning, guess who slept ALL night, about 9 hours --yep that would be me!!! I feel the best I've felt in a while even with the high BS still being an issue. We went out to breakfast this morning, then went to visit the riverfront & watch the river traffic, lots of people in boat today enjoying a day off & the summer weather.. Then we stopped @ Food Lion, they had corn on the cob 10 ears for $1, so we got 50 ears that I plan on cleaning & blanching for the freezer this afternoon. Even will throw some on the grill for supper.

Hope everyone is enjoying their day/weekend. It is on & off mist,& rain, & it's chilly, so I guess I won't be biking..:o((..but I have a wonderful male friend (just friends) who helps me out with rides (I no longer drive because of my seizures) so I will still be able to see my Mom. It is hard to see her failing, especially when she was doing fairly well couple of months ago. At that time, she would bounce back from a bad day, but now, it's everyday she is getting slower, her speech is slower and harder to get the words out. But at least I can be with her, whether she talks or not, so I talk (God gave me the gift of gab), so there is no lack of words on my part. So I am thankful for all of you..it helps just to put down in words how I feel.
I'm hoping the day improves, so at least I can take a bike ride..have a good day everyone!!

Dusty the SS room is keeping you busy, but oh what a pleasure it will be to see the finished product.

Life has been pretty much the same for me lately, working lots of hours at the office just trying to keep afloat with the work load. Thankfully, my DIL is cooking supper during the week so that is taking a load off. It's finally Wednesday, almost to the weekend & some R & R time.

Wow, that's some tall walls. I bet it will look awesome when you are done with the remodel. A sense of satisfaction.

Another work week done, now off to the weekend. Heading out now to get some supper with Kenny, hope to enjoy some quiet time. Tomorrow we have a breakfast date with some friends, it will be good to catch up.

Dusty, wow, that's a lot to be done, do you have any help getting it clean & tidy?

Looking for my mojo today, BS very high & no sleep last night, of course those seem to go hand in hand from what I'm learning about diabetes. I do know I have a busy day at the office based on what I already have scheduled so I need to get my energy boot, guess I will walk over to the Scotchman & grab some coffee.

Have a great day.

We are just back from 6 hours working on the Sunday School room...We had to tear down sound barrier that they had glued to the windows...no small feat as the windows are 6' square and hauled sheetrock and debris down to the dumpster...that is 3 full flights of stairs...I was up and down them so much.... I don't want to count them.

We vacuumed, swept & mopped the floor, layed carpet, and made the circle of folding chairs today.

Now we need to paint at least two walls...they painted the ceiling a maroon, 2 walls dark dark green and 2 dark brown...it will take at least a gallon of klitz primer and one gallon of paint to cover each wall....if we are lucky.

There is an old saying...what doesn't kill you will cure you..
We are looking at covering the green walls...windows on one side with radiators and the opposite one...these green will now be ivory to lighten the room and we hope to get gold drapes by winter...I am thinking I can just get sheers in a gold color for now.

So ivory walls freshly painted and the dark brown walls opposite.
The carpet is a light tan and does deaden the sound in the room as well as pick up the tan in the sofa. For now...that maroon is gonna stay there. ...that ceiling is too darn high!

I have to see if I can take the seat cushion covers off the sofa so I can wash them...I hope I hope as that sofa is grungy... if they don't come off then I shall have to bring my shampooer in and use the furniture attachment to clean it...soon enough for it to dry before Rally Sunday.

There is a bulletin board that needs repair of one of its legs too.
That's it for now we are exhausted- bye

Friends - I have sadly come to the conclusion that I simply do not have time with my new appointment to a new location to be on-line and active as much as I need to be to really be a committed member of the team - I am going to hope that the tools and lessons I have learned will help me continue my journey. For now I am leaving the team.

Barbie, praying for safe travels as you take your car in for a checkup, hope it gets a clean bill of health.

Dusty, keep a positive attitude, I find it helps me get through the tough days.

Still working on the BS problem, but finally a breakthrough. For once, the BS was below 200 this morning. YAYY.. Hard work is paying off.

Really tough first day. So busy....kept forgetting to eat. I don't want to write the story twice...so if you really are interested in reading all about it...I posted my woes in the "Sisters" chat room.

I think my week will be a challenge BUT I remain resolved and focused

PS. I still have not found the daily fitness link.....I must really be blind

Glad to hear you had an awesome day Dusty! Keep up the good work.


Good evening friends. I was still dragging today, but I did get in a short walk with Marv and my yoga class. I wasn’t sure about going to yoga as I wasn’t feeling well, but I am glad I went because it was awesome and I did feel better afterwards. Tomorrow I have to go out of town to have my car serviced but I am hoping to take my bike to ride since I will be stranded for half the day. We’ll see how that goes. It will be my first venture on my bike alone out of town.

Barbie, good job on the fitness. August is almost here, I'm so ready to get on the BSG challenges, sure have missed all my support buddies.

I woke thinking it was Friday, not only that got excited because I also thought it was payday. What a bummer to realize I was wrong in both instances. My coworker Paula is still out, til probably next Thursday but she is making a good recovery it seems. My other coworker is only working 1/2 tomorrow as she has a dental appointment, so Friday afternoon it will just be me & the receptionist, sure hope the time goes quickly. LOL.

Again no sleep, seems I'm on a track record of insominia again. I even took some motrin thinking that would help, only feel worse this morning. Now where did I put the Eye Toothpicks. LOL I'm ready for the weekend for sure, maybe some rest but maybe not with 2 little hyper toddlers scampering through the house. LOL.

Good evening friends. I have had a good week for fitness, but for some reason I can't control the munchies. It is frustrating. I think if I was better about fixing meals I would do better, but I just can't seem to do that.

@ Donna - I am sorry you are continuing with your sleep problems. This morning I woke up about 2 hours before I usually do so the day seemed really long and I was getting sleepy quite early. I hope your blood sugar is better tomorrow when you check it.

@ Debbie - way to go on preparing meals for the freezer. I got some recipes from my daughter when I was done there for that purpose, but I just haven't been able to make myself do that yet. Maybe when the weather isn't as nice I will make the time.

Debbie, Great idea to prep meals & store in the freezer. I do the same with stuff like chili & soup in the winter, whatever is leftover from the 1st meal, I store for a quick supper later on.

Still not sleeping, seems to be my new way of life I guess, I'm sure it is not helping with the blood sugar either as it is staying up even with the insulin, now having some itchy skin, which is one of the side effects. Can't seem to win this one. LOL. So glad it's Friday, maybe some time away for busy work schedules & some Recreation time is what I need.

Have a great day ladies.

Hello everyone!

Wanted to drop in and say HI! Leslie and I spent most of the day yesterday working in the kitchen. We made egg rolls and cabbage rolls to froze them for quick dinners, When we don't want to cook. I used the egg roll receipe that is in the Spark People receipe data base.

Guess who's back up, or should I saw what??? Blood sugar back to 217 this morning, so I have my bottle of water in hand already chugging it down. The kids didn't get her til 9 so I had trouble going to sleep due to all the movement of them getting them & their stuff settled in. I have a busy day at work since I was out on Friday & one of my coworkers will be out started tomorrow for 2-3 weeks as she is having hernia surgery, not sure if laproscopy or actual incision surgery. Praying she makes a full recovery.

Well guess who's feeling emoticon today??? That would be me!!! Finally the blood sugar has come done. emoticon Yesterday, it was staying in the high 200-low 300 range. But this morning it was 120. Yayy, perhaps the insulin has finally kicked in & started working, I"ve been taking it since Wednesday morning. I even got up & prepared lunch for after church. I have a beef roast with potatoes & onions in the crockpot, simmering in fat free cream of mushroom soup as DH doesn't like the Lipton Onion Soup seasoning packs. Also made a pot of mustard greens as those are definitely sugar friendly.
Hope you all have a fabulous day.

Linda, glad you dad is down with the treatment. Now he can focus on getting his strength back & getting some meat added back to his bones.

BS still not coming down. So far I'm still about 300 calories below my guideline, even reducing my meal size & carb amount doesn't seem to be helping. Hope I can sleep tonight & perhaps have a lower sugar reading. I did some shopping today, didn't find anything clothes to my liking so bought myself a new wallet & purse.
Have a restful evening ladies.

Dusty, how's the gardening coming along?

I did sleep a little better, but went to bed with very high sugar, that was even after having my meds a little earlier. I've decided instead of waiting til bedtime to take them when I get home, that way my morning & evening meds are spaced exactly 12 hours apart. Blood sugar still high this morning, but I did make myself a 1 egg omlet with a slice of turkey & some shredded cheese & 1 piece of toast with jelly. Hope that along with the insulin will help me feel better & get this BS down. Waiting on the last load of laundry to dry, then heading to town to do some shopping & also go with my DD to her ultrasound appointment, can't wait to see how lil Ms Kyleigh is doing, it's getting close to her arrival. emoticon

Have a great day!

I did get by the pharmacy, I made sure so I could bet my antibotics. Although the pharmacist went on lunch break 15 minutes before I arrived, so I ended up waiting about 45 minutes to get my meds. The dr suggested I take Tylenol to help with the pain, man did I sleeps so much better! I did wake up 2x to go to the bathroom, but went back to sleep, I feel so much better today, that must be a miracle antibiotic. LOL.

I learned last night the kids are moving in with us this weekend as I suspected. So now I'm on the search to help Josh find a better & more permanent job as the produce market job will only last through the summer. If any of you have ever watched THE BIG BANG THEORY, you will get a kick out of the next line. DH called & discussed "THE ROOMMATE AGREEMENT" with the kids, they are fine with is. I know it's going to be an adjustment for all of us, but at least we will have all of our kids back within 1 hour radius of us once again.

Have a great day!

Debbie, I also don't like the heat of the summers, not to mention the humidity, that makes it even worse. I miss our garden, so now we have to go to a farmers market to get our fresh veggies.

Dusty, Good job on getting the freezer cleaned out, now theres room for yummy foods.

The blood sugar has been very elevated lately, today I learned why & why I'm in so much pain . I have a UTI & bladder infection, the DR didn't rule out kidney stones. I have to check back with her tomorrow to see if the meds are working, if not she is sending me for an xray to see if I indeed to have the stones. I'm praying I don't, I've heard some painful stories from others who have had them. In so much pain I don't even feel like eating. Kenny bought me a subway melt for supper, I barely even eat 1/2 of it, it was the 6 inch one. I'm soon off to bed, haven't had a decent night's sleep in about a week.
Our son & his family in WV are moving in with us this weekend, he starts a job with a Produce Farm on Monday, in the meantime he will be looking for something more permanent with better pay, but this is a start so they can get moved back to NC.

Hello everyone!

I love summer. I don't care for the heat so much. What I love is the fresh fruits and veggetables that I can go out pick from our garden. Our tomato plants are just loaded with tomato's. I am starting to freeze some of my herbs for use later when the garden is dormant. Today my project is to make some low carb chicken and veggie pockets for freezing. They will be single serving pockets so that Leslie and I have something we can pick out of the freezer on those nights we don't feel like cooking.

My brother has been a big help with all of my freezing projects. He is the one who helped come with the low carb pocket crust.

Donna, I am sorry to hear about your friend.

Linda, I am glad that your dad has survived cancer. I am hoping that I will be able to do that also.

Barb, That's wonderful you are able to bike to your mom's & enjoy some of those hobbies with her. You are right we need to cherish every moment as we never know when it's the last we will have with that person. I guess that's what has hit so hard about Francine's death. We just never know from one moment to the next. The Charley horse didn't come back last night but I'm still dealing with that muscle ache from the other night's Charley Horses.

The blood sugar battle wages on, keep me awake most of the night but not letting it keep me in the corner, I have much to do today. Josh & his family stayed with his sister last night, they will be coming to our church today & then staying with us tonight to visit before leaving for his interview tomorrow. Hope everyone enjoys their day.

Donna, sorry to hear about your charley horses. Whenever I am stressed about, I get them.
What a great way to start your day by going out for breakfast..glad you could find some great deals..Enjoy your birthday supper!
I've been biking almost everyday to see my Mom...We have been playing cards, and doing alot of visiting about things we have done in the past..mostly good. She is doing fairly well, but I realize that can change so fast..so am very "thankful" and blessed to have this time with her!!
It's a windy and cool morning, only 51 degrees..brr.., but will still try to get a bike ride in!!

Linda, great news about your dad!! Happy belated Anniversary!!

Was awakened several times during the night from Charley Horses, always in the same spot. My leg is still achy, but I did stop this morning at CVS & pickup some more potassium to help prevent anymore. CVS had a BOGO offer on their CVS brand vitamins/mineral supplements so I also picked up a bottle of Calcium/Magnesium/ZInc supplement. Kenny took me out for breakfast & then to Sears & Pennys for birthday shopping. Didn't find anything at Pennys but did get a new pair of slacks for work & 3 tops & a pair of silver plated hoop earrings --all for $50. That's pretty good considering the slacks normally are about $40. Heading home now to get the cleaning & laundry done before going out for my birthday supper later. Hope everyone has a great day.

Linda, Wishing you a belated emoticon . May you & Steve have many, many more! Glad he's doing well from his surgery & making a good recovery. That was good news about your dad, but will pray for continued recovery.

It's a dreary morning, doesn't help though that the lights in the office are acting up, don't come on til a couple of hours after I've been here. I feel almost like I'm working by candlelight but without the candle. LOL.

I feel much more at peace today because I know Francine is no longer suffering or in a comatose state. My heart aches though knowing what her DH & 13 year old DD (actually her mother's twin, they were identical in appearance & disposition) must be going through.
A friend (our former office receptionist) wants to take me to lunch, I'm hoping the office will not be so crazy so I can go, we are still operating on 50% staffing. Hopefully by end of next week we will be back to full staff but then another coworker goes out for 2 weeks, she's have outpatient hernia surgery.

Debbie, glad you were able to get some veggies & the burgers & meatloafs made for the freezer, those will make for easy, healthy meals later.

Dusty, thanks for the comforting words. It's just hard to fathom someone stricken with fatal strokes at only 37 years of age.

I have been amazed with all the Sparkpage comments & goodies in honor of my birthday --- emoticon ! I've had a good day overall. Didn't have my office party yet as we are waiting til the entire staff returns to the office, probably sometime next week. But my coworker, Paula baked me some yummy brownies, of course I had to have one, especially since they were fresh out of the oven. I saw my youngest dd this afternoon, she came by the office to visit with me, so good to see her.

Hello everyone!

We had a good, busy day yesterday. I spent the morning cleaning house. Then Leslie and I had a 8/40 meeting, went to the grocery store after the meeting. We bought lots of fresh veggies. We stayed up till 1am vacume packing the veggies for the freezer. Today I am planning on making a couple of meatloaves and hamburger patties to freeze for future use. Tonight is leftover night since Leslie has two meetings to go to.

Dusty, that's quite a lot of gardening, I imagine it keeps you busy, but it's nice have delicious home grown fruits & veggies.

Sad to report my friend Francine lost her battle last night about 7. But she is a much happier & peaceful place & now she can open her eyes & see the beauty of heaven.
Have a great day, making it positive as I can with a emoticon on my face.

Dusty, hope the gardening was productive. Do you garden veggies or flowers?

Stopped off at Wendy's & picked up salads for supper -- I had the Strawberry Fields with chicken, Kenny had the Apple - Pecan with Chicken Salad. Sure makes for a quick & healthy supper. I've stayed on track with my goal of 5 freggies today, by the time I have my late snack I will have had 6 servings actually. Yahoo. Still waiting for an update on Francine. Last I heard early this morning was that she was resting but still breathing on her own. But the real issue is her inability to wake up & open her eyes.

Been up since 5, working on laundry from the weekend. My goal is to have it caught up tonight by bedtime. Kenny's been getting home lately at a better hour, usually home by 5 instead of 7. He was transferred to a closer shop to work from, so he's only about a 1 to 1 1/2 away, much better than that usual 3 hour drive home. It's a win win --he gets more rest time at home & since he usually gets home before me, he starts a load of laundry & also cooks supper!
Got an update from Sam, he said Francine was having more movement last night than usual but is asking for prayers as the ventilator will be removed this morning, his prayer is that she wakes up & is able to breathe on her own. The doctors have been telling him she will never awaken from this as she had 2 major strokes, one affecting each side of her brain. Please continue prayers & I will update later tonight. Thank you to all who have been lifting her in prayer, so sad what she's been through, she's only 37.

Have a great day friends

Dusty, yes family times are good, but happy to have my quiet, relaxed routine as well as a "quiet" home. LOL.

Just getting a chance to spark today finally. I got the floors cleaned last night & washed the guest bedroom linens. Kenny cleaned the bathroom & kitchen as those are his self chosen chores. THis morning I washed our bed linens, now the only thing left is to catch up the laundry. Watching my favorite show, The Big Bang Theory & then off to bed in an hour. Have a good night all.

I agree it is nice to have family times...but also nice to have rest and quiet and be able to dig into a project that needs doing without being concerned about company

Hello everyone!

I have to agree that it is weird not doing a challenge this month. At least there is no pressure to get things done. Maybe that is the reason my exercise and nutrition seems to be working better for me. I do not preform well under pressure.

I got 5600 ste[s in today and 36 minutes on the stationary bike. Tomorrow it is off to the hospital for an ultra sound. I am thinking about picking up my loom again and do some knitting for the kids at church.

Have to go for now see you all later.

HUGS

Dusty, yes family times are good but it's going to be nice to get back to somewhat of normalcy.

Jules,glad you are getting settled into your new place. I'm looking forward to the challenge starting back in August. Just get back on track with your personal goals. We can make this month a month of success.

We've had a busy weekend. Had a cookout with all of the family except my youngest DD Friday as she was working the closing shift @ Wendy's. Afterwards the kids set off a firework display for the grandkids to enjoy. Then yesterday, most of the kids were back over all day long til about 7. Now our son & his family are packing & heading back home to WV. I'm kind of looking forward to coming home from church to a quiet home, it's going to be a welcome sound.

Well we are in our new home...not quite unpacked yet...but at least functionally moved in. I am preparing meals in the new kitchen. Tomorrow is our Welcome Sunday. Our congregation is 3 times the size of our last congregation. Larry will preach his first sermon in our new appointment.

The move revealed 2 major things - First, Moving is for the birds! Second, We have WAY TOO MUCH stuff!!!

I am officially back on track Monday - the Treadmill will be up and ready for me.
I really am sorry to see the challenge is on a break....I gained weight on my month off.
I had hoped to be at goal weight...but it just did not happen. No excuses - I ate horrible and did not exercise. Time to get on with it though!

Our son & his family made it in about 2am this morning. We all slept in til about 730ish. Then we started cooking breakfast --bacon, sausage, biscuits, grits & eggs, even some orange rols for the kids. By the we got it ready one of our daughters & her family had popped in, but we had plenty to go around. Heading now to pickup Brandon & Ky'el since their mom is working til 4. I must stay the kids did good getting their plans put together ---I don't have to do a thing, they are hosting the burger & hotdog cookout & giving us the day off. Love being able to relax, it's a good feeling.

Hi Debbie & LInda, nice to see you ladies drop by. I agree the break is a nice change.

I've got the house cleaned this morning before work, now finishing up the laundry. Just trying to get things done before Josh & his family arrive early in the morning. Looks like Arthur is passing us by, we got lots of much needed rain but thankfully it didn't come ashore. It looks like the kids have gotten together & planned a cookout @ our house tomorrow since their brother is in town for the weekend. Unfortunately all of the firework displays have been cancelled or postponed that were scheduled this weekend due to the threat of Arthur who was only a Cat 1 hurricane.

Hello everyone!

Well it has been quite sometime since I was in this chat room. I hope everyone is looking forward a great 4th of July. I am actually planning on having a quiet one. At least as quiet one as the neighborhood will allow. Our church is having a pancake breakfast tomorrow morning. I plan on going and visiting with friends. Unfortunately pancakes are not on my menu.

I am having to shake up my nutrition as of today. Pasta and potatoes are off my list of food I can eat. Since my pulmonogist put me prednisone for the next 5 days. I am also having to take regular insulin with meals if my blood sugar is to high.

I will check back later.

HUGS

Thanks Ari, right now it's not expected to be more than a Category 1 storm that is grazing the coastline, I'm about 1 hr inland so hopefully won't be to bad but I will be prepared just in case.

WHoa what a busy day, I guess when there's a threat of a Hurricane it prompts people to pay their bills. LOL. I can't remember the last time I took that many payments in one day. We are officially cut off from writing new policies, so hopefully tomorrow will be a little milder.
Of course I just found out that our son in WV his family are coming in late tomorrow night. I only wish he would have given me more notice to get the guest room set up & get some groceries in the house. I see he is still a procrastinator. LOL. Guess our quiet weekend is going to be anything but. We aren't planning a cookout as the budget just doesn't allow for that extra cost, for our large family it's $125-150 for a simple cookout by the time you buy all the fixings & paper products. So we will see if the kids are wiling to host the cookout instead, there's 5 of them so it wouldn't be as big of an expense on just one person.
