Lifestyle changes but first
Thursday, February 08, 2018
Our hot water heated started leaking. It was only 6 years old
and almost out of warranty. We had it replaced yesterday.
A little shorter and a little rounder than the last one. Sort of like
humans as they age LOL! It is more energy efficient, so the
man says. It will cost $100 plus labor to install since we still
were still within warranty. Crisis averted for the checkbook.
We are getting snow today, possibly 2-5 inches. It did snow
last night but shoveling was pretty minor.
As for the lifestyle changes, it is official. DH is pre-diabetic.
He denied it for months and said it was no big deal. His blood
glucose levels have been rising and his A1C was 6. At the hospital
the last time, he stated firmly that the tests were wrong. Well, he
say a new doctor yesterday and she spent 2 hours with him. He
now needs to take metformin, but a glucose meter, test strips and
keep a daily journal. The doctor is sending him information on the
new "diet" that he needs to follow. He will lovingly lay out all the
information for me, tell me that I have to read it so that "I" know
how to prepare meals and snacks so he doesn't have any issues.
I did explain that it is not my cooking that needs to change but
his eating habits. That went over like a lead balloon. So be it.
I am sure the coming days will be uncomfortable for him and thus
for me. It should be interesting. I will have to "hold my tongue" and
not set off his temper. Like it is my fault that he loves chocolate
anything, ice cream by the pint-you get the idea. Smile, just smile
and do the best I can. I can almost hear the lectures now.
But aside from that, life is good. Practicing patience with the hubby.
Have a wonderful Thursday and thanks for all the comments that I
know my Spark Friends will share. HUGS!
