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.

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.

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.

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.

Good morning ladies, hope everyone is doing well. I slept ok, but not long enough, forgot & stayed up later than I should have since we had to be up @ 4 this morning. Need to get things finalized on my desk, we have that potential for a Hurricane tomorrow night grazing by our area.

Jules, praying for save travels & a speedy settling in.

I think I must be caught up with my sleep, been awake since just before 5 so ended up getting up @ 6 & starting on the laundry. Heading to church now, not sure if we have PM services tonight as today is the 5th Sunday of the Month which usually means no service to give the preacher a chance to rest. But Since we've had several Sundays off for Father's Day & something else I can't remember we may have services tonight. Lunch will be easy, just warming up the roast & peas & then will heat up some turnip greens (out of the can).

Hope everyone has a great day!

Jules, are you about settled into your new place? See you in the July challenge, maybe we will be on a team together.

Dusty, awesome, nothing like fresh laundered clothes drying in the sunshine.

Kenny & I rode to town to meet a friend & her husband for breakfast. It was good to catch up with them, haven't seen them in a couple of months probably. Then Kenny & I went over to Hobby Lobby, dangerous place for me! LOL. While there I did get some ideas of things I would like to make for Christmas gifts, now just need to find the time to start creating. We're home now & have the housecleaning done, just need to finish up laundry & then going to put a roast with sweet peas in the oven, also will roast some corn on the cob in the oven as well. Should be enough for supper tonight & lunch for tomorrow after church, it will be so good to eat at home on the weekends for a change.

Woohoo on new garden growth Dusty. Hope the test on July 1 shows signs of healing, you've had the ear issues for quite some time.

Had a good day at work, very productive & even got off work on time --that's a rarity on Fridays. LOL. When I got home I learned DH had done ALL of the laundry & had cooked supper -- BBQ Chicken, Homestyle mashed potatoes & cukes & tomatoes in vinegar & then cantaloupe for dessert. Yum! Now relaxing & watching some tv. Tomorrow morning we are going to meet some friends for breakfast.

Jules, we are right here to help you get back where you belong. Can't wait to have you back with us daily.

Had a good day, lots of things accomplished at the office. Had a luncheon hosted by a repair vendor ---lunch provided from Chipotle while we listened to what the company "Purofirst" could offer our clients. Came home & finished putting DD"s bed linens back on her bed, did some housecleaning & now waiting for DH to get home so we can have supper. I have a fresh garden salad prepared & will grill the fish while he gets cleaned up. Then it's off to bed in an hour, hopefully I will sleep better tonight.

I am so ready for July! This transition and moving stuff is for the birds. I'm afraid I've gained some. Once I get situated in the new place it's back on track. I don't know how people do this without work

Lesley, glad you had a great mini vacay, even a short, simple getaway is good for the mental health.

The shower was nice, she got some really pretty things for Kyleigh. Of course we didn't have an many as anticipated but all in all had a great #. My sister even came, she looked so good, much better than when I saw her that night while she was doing her cancer treatments. Heading home now, I'm ready for a COLD shower as I've been roasting all afternoon staying so busy with cleaning up the fellowship hall & kitchen. Hopefully I will have no trouble sleeping tonight. LOL. Tomorrow is my appointment for another cortisone shot, should give me some relief for a few days again.

Have a good night.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the summer so far. June has been busy for me. Vacation to wine country in Long Island first week with some wonderful friends. It was nice to visit the vineyard and taste their wine while having a picnic in the beautiful sunshine. Although we were only 3 hours away, it felt like a million miles. Was a much needed stress free vacation for all of us. We got the pool open and the outside ready for the summer. Now it's time to enjoy it!

I bought a Nautilus CoreBody Reformer. It was a great deal, so I couldn't resist. Started using it today....it is a great workout and doesn't stress my Achilles. And it provides low resistance for my shoulder. Finally I can do something fun that doesn't further cause injury and I get a great workout.

Now after a couple of weeks off, back to sparking! I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday!

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomfort.

Dusty, hope you are soon feeling better. Take it easy.

I've been busy cleaning house & making final preps for my DD's baby shower tomorrow. Punch is made & in the freezer, she wanted the slushy kind of punch, so I will take it out in the morning to start thawing. I have to make egg salad tonight so I can make some sandwiches, also need to make some PB& J sandwiches tomorrow so the kids will have something they like as well. Unfortunately, my cake maker had to back out, she's been in bed since Thursday with her back. She can't walk or even stand due to inflammation in 2 of her vertebrae. Thankfully, Walmart saved the weekend, I called & explained my predictament of needing a cake in 24 hours & it looks like my request is being met. I will pickup the cake after church tomorrow as it's supposed to be waiting on me by 130.
Heading out to supper with Kenny now to use the "FREE" Outback card, a nice evening out with my main squeeze, a perfect way to end this busy day.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Julie, you've got this girl! Chin up, before you know you will be back with us on the challenge, can't wait!

I tried to sleep in a bit but no chance, actually as awake most of the night. Ready to get this day to being my weekend. It's wonderful to have DH back home, but it sounds like he make have to go out of town again next week to help get that job finished as they are not quite 1/2 on this huge project & next Friday is the deadline for completion.
Wishing everyone a Sparkful Day!

Hi everyone!

I am still around...still in the middle of a move. 12 more days and we are on the road and in the moving truck - then the unpacking and organizing begins.

I am really going to need the July challenge....June has not been good for me at all.

I slept pretty good, much better than expected. Since I didn't make it to Michaels last night, that is on my agenda today. I am leaving earlier @ 3 today since I have to work late Friday. This way I can get all my errands done & still be home @ a decent hour to relax some while working on laundry.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Dusty, emoticon for the void that is never filled when we lose our parents.

Didn't get off as early as would have liked, ended up getting home late so DH fried the porkchops & cooked some noodles & some field peas. I'm finishing up the last load of laundry & then we will start packing his overnight bag for his out of town stay til Thursday. Then its of to bed before the chickens. LOL

Have a good night friends.

Yes indeed Dusty, Father's Day is a time of reflection & to honor those special men in our lives. I'm thankful to still have my father around, although his health isn't what I would want it to be, at least we can still talk & visit.

I slept well again last night, but today is a very busy day. Returning to work after a 3 day weekend, hopefully things aren't too crazy at the office. Then while supper is cooking I will get laundry started as I have to help DH pack before bedtime. He leaves @ 4am tomorrow to head out of town til Thursday night for work. Sure is going to be strange being home this week without him, praying for his safety while he's away.

Part of the foot issue is plantar faciitis, but I can't remember the other name as it affects the toes & front part of the foot connecting to the toes.

Sorry I didn't get by here for the past couple of days. Boy has it been a busy weekend. Friday Kenny & I went to breakfast. Then around lunchtime I met up with my youngest DD & we went shopping, it was good to spend the afternoon together. She even helped me pick out Kenny's Father's Day gift -- a beginners painting kit complete with an easel. He loves it! Friday night we have the grandkids, 4 of them from age of 3 to 8, we had a great time & they were all so excited to have each other to play with. VBS was busy Saturday, the kids painted birdhouses & made a refrigerator magnet, afterwards they all played on the giant blow up waterslide the church as leased for the day. Finally we got home & I warmed up the leftovers that were in the fridge as I was too tired to consider cooking or going out. Ended up going to be @ 8 before it was even dark. LOL. Today, still tired but feeling much more rested. We have a busy day of church services this morning, then lunch & a funeral this afternoon.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Last night for supper, I made hamburger stroganoff but instead of egg noodles I used the Penne noodles as I had some left in the cabinets from that last time I cooked pasta. Served with a side salad, very simple supper. I was afraid of what it would do to my blood sugar, but happy to say I actually had the lowest fasting # this morning that I've had in several weeks, below 100! YAYY!!! I did sleep but don't know if I slept too hard or maybe the sleep deficit is catching up with me, feeling really groggy this morning. I hope to get all my work caught up today at the office so I can take tomorrow off with DH & get things ready for VBS on Saturday. We will be getting our 4 local grandkids Friday afternoon for them to spend the night, then taking them to VBS Saturday. Our church is only having a 1 day VBS so it's an all day event, I bet I will be tired for sure come Saturday evening after being on my feet most of the day in the craft room. LOL.

Dusty, how is the ear doing? Have the meds helped?

I guess the sleep fairy can get her job a little longer, she did great last night. I think I sleep all night long, don't remember waking up til just before the clock went off @ 4am. I got some laundry done & most of my sparking already, even 1/2way to my water consumption goal for the day. Ready for a great day, one step at a time.

Oh no, you still not any better Dusty? Hope the meds will work soon.

Went to the podiatrist. He did an xray as he though the bones in the top of my foot were broken, thankfully no broken bones. He told me what was wrong but it was one of those funny sounding, long names I can't remember. Basically I have a bunion & it's causing friction in the bones that got down into the toes, stretching the tendons, said there was some inflammation as well. He gave me a cortisone shot , in the toes area, OUCH!!!! That was painful. I have to go back in 2 weeks if no better. Soon taking my motrin & heading off to bed, it's been a long day & I have to be up @ 4am again tomorrow.

Good night ladies.

Finally home after a busy day. Had a great time at Lindsey's party, not a big crowd but it was in a beautiful park with swings. Here parents even brought water balloons, I think the adult kids had as much fun as the little ones. LOL.
Resting til bedtime which will be earlier tonight since we have to be up @ 4am for DH to be out the door by 5. I will use the early morning hours to work on some laundry & packing lunches.
Have a good night everyone.

Dusty, hope you get some drier weather to get out & enjoy your days.

Finally, finished purchasing the craft kits for VBS --making little paper drums, foam butterfly magnets & painting birdhouse windchimes. Also picked up a paint by numbers kit & microscope kit at the craft store for our granddaughter's birthday, also got her a pretty pink & purple dress at Penny's, on sale for $14. Now stopping by the grocery store for chips for Lindsey's party & then something for supper. It's been a busy day already & it's only noon.

A lot has changed since May 18th..our first 70F day. Temps continue to vacillate. This morning it was 50F and appears this is where they will stay today.
rainy morning here...last night the air was so saturated looked like fog I thought we were having hail because the rain came down and was so heavy the raindrops looked like they were half dollar-size raindrops
Our Meteorologist Paul Douglas says this has been the wettest (Jan-May) on record for 144 years!
It is a great day to prep meals to serve when the sun and heat return.
It is a great day to make lists of things to be done.
It is a great day to organize an area that needs it.
It is a great day to read a book.
A wonderful day to visit the Conservatory or other indoor gardens,,,even garden centers!
Or even watching a video of gardens around the world.

I was pleased with the healthy supper I chose --ordered a grilled combo plate of flounder, shrimp & scallops & DH even sampled it & loved it. Very tasty & I didn't feel bad like as when I have the fried seafood. Good choice I guess. Blood sugar isn't as high this morning as it normally is after a night of eating out, just a tiny bit elevated but I will conquer this today.

I'm up early, been awake since 530 so go up @ 630, got laundry started, working on my water intake & sparking while DH sleeps. Later we will go to breakfast, then have to get our shopping done. I did find coupons for 2 of the craft stores so need to finish up the craft selections for VBS. Also planning to get Lindsey some sort of art kit since she loves drawing & painting, as well as a new outfit for the summer.

I didn't sleep all that well. I think I was afraid I would oversleep & not wake up in time to go meet my daughter so I could take Brandon & Ky'el to school. But thankfully her DH got off @ 3am instead of 6am so he could take them. I have to finish choosing the craft kits this weekend so I need to check my email to see if I have more coupons for MIchaels Craft Store. Also need to pickup Lindsey's birthday gifts, her party is Sunday at a local park. She's very artsy so thinking about a drawing or painting kit.

Have a great day.

didn't go for my foot appointment yesterday. I actually found my appointment card when I was searching my desk drawer for something else. My appointment is actually next Tuesday. My DD went for her monthly OB appointment, the dr has her scheduled for a CSection Aug 8 (4 days before the due date). The time is counting down for our little princess to arrive, can't wait! Then we found out last week our son & his wife with the 2 little girls in WV, are now expecting again ---also in Feb (so all three of their children will have February birthdays, LOL).

Have a great day everyone!

Crazy & busy day at the office, glad the day is over. Now heading to a funeral home for visitation of a friend's mother. It's out of town for us, so will be a late night by the time we grab a bite to eat & arrive back home.

Dusty, hope you are feeling better today, time for Vertigo to take a hike.

The AC was fixed & working like a charm when I got home. I was late getting home as I had to make stops for RXs & groceries. I picked up DH & I a healthy choice entrée & made a serving each of tomatoes & cucumber slices with apple cider vinegar. I read somewhere that the apple cider vinegar is good for lowering blood sugar & also is good for high cholesterol.

Dusty, hope you are feeling better & the vertigo is a thing of the past.

Jules, Moving is a lot of work & works lots of muscles. You have a lot going on with all the hats you must wear at this time. Hope to see you back soon, take care of yourself & pop in whenever you can.

After I got home I started feeling really bad, started with nausea & upset tummy, then got to feeling really flushed, then sweating. I thought maybe it was my blood sugar until a couple hours later, DH was complaining about how hot it is in the house. I looked & although the AC unit had been on all day, it was 78 in the house (we keep the ac on 71 usually, otherwise I get too hot & sick feeling, gotta love those hot flashes). So we have a call into our HVAC repairman, he's coming out in the morning to take a look as we just replaced the compressor last May.
