Vacation, Medical and Newtown CT....

Yesterday was my last day of work for 2 weeks. Like I've always said, It's not good for my finances, but it's great for my peace and piece of mind :-) I don't have plans, specifically, just whatever we do, we do. It's just nice to refresh my mind every now and then, working with 500+ kids every day.

Since finding out I am now a diabetic, I've been taking my readings every morning and they've been good. I thought for sure that this morning's reading was going to be HIGH because I had a piece of bbq rib late last night, but THANK GOD,  my reading was real good, 105. :-) WHEW! Since finding out, and starting meds, I've been feeling 100% than I was before. I was tired, tired tired, thinking my thyroid medicine needed upping, but that wasn't it. I don't know that I have more energy, but I have MORE than what I did before. I feel almost normal, just wish it didn't take meds to get me there. :-) Other than that, I'm healthy :-)

The shooting…

Funny!

This is so old...my husband saved it, and may have even shared it with his ex, LOL...

It's been a week....

And it hasn't been all that fun...but I wake up every morning, giving thanks for another day!

Dec. 6th I was dx with Diabetes. I was sad, but it runs in my family, and apparently, I couldn't escape it. Neither has my older brother. I told him, "we got dad's disease, (older sis) got Mom's..." More things my kids will have to watch out for. I did take my blood sugar reading since Dec 7th, and this morning it was perfect at 90. It's been consistently less than 120 for 5 out of out days. That's good, I think :-)
ANYWAY, my neighbor has let me borrow her diabetes cookbooks, meals and desserts. It all looks DELICIOUS!! I look forward to making some of the recipes. I also signed up for classes, which start in January, though now I'm not sure I can take the Sign language class I want to...I'll have to see. 
I think I was sold a Lemon when I bought my 2008 Saturn Outlook. I have had to have it in the shop for Tranny problems twice in less than 2 months…

Where has the year gone!??

December already! WHAT!? how did this happen?? Am I so busy that life is just passing me by? I don't think so, but PLEASE, STOP THE WORLD for a MINUTE...seems the older I get, the faster the years go by, and, well, quite frankly,  I think that's bullshit and don't like it, not one bit, but I guess, in reality, there is nothing I can do about it, just go along and enjoy the ride! :-)

LIFE is fine at the moment. Well, my car isn't, and I have a rental. Funny, I got a text from my neighbor this morning, who said, "I meant to tell you yesterday, I like your old car better!" HUH? my old car? I didn't buy a new one. My "old car" Bessie is only 4 yrs old, and running a little rough, so she is in the shop for repairs or re-repairs I should say. (possible lemon law deal here) but I will get her back in a day or two, I HOPE. :-) Not that it should matter to my neighbor, LOL

Female child is doing good. Working, getting ready to take some classes at the Adu…
