Share the Link Of Your Favorite Blogger!


Help your favorite blogger get seen.

Dream Big, Dream Often

share_logoTom Slatin sent me a great idea via Twitter and I am going to do something a little different while on vacation. Here is the basic idea for this link share post:

  • I want you to leave a link to the blog which you love the most (not your own page!)
  • Reblog this post to help spread the love.
  • Leave a brief description of the page you love and why you love it!

This should be a ton of fun and is a great way to selflessly help another blogger.

My Sugar is High Today


I am starting out a little higher than usual. It is higher than it has been fasting though. Not sure of the cause.

I have been working in my bedroom. Working on the mini-hoard. Made some progress.

Supposed to  meet my old friend and go walking this afternoon. Probably talk about old times and then he will lecture me on my health. Haven’t they heard that they aren’t their brother’s keeper? Men!! We aren’t going to walk far. I tried to tell him I walk slow and not very far. I know this is good for me, but I am not a physical activity type person and when it hurts, leave me alone please.

Grade School “fling” – reunited at 60 years of age…


D and I were very close friends in grade school. We had a fling, as much as children our age had flings. There was something about D that tickled me pink. Then came the news that I had to move. It wasn’t really far, but it may as well have been. We didn’t see each other again except briefly at a huge factory we both worked in and in separate areas, We didn’t renew our friendship at that time.

Around 5-6 weeks ago something told me to look him up in Facebook. I found him and friended him, but was afraid he wouldn’t remember me. He did and he remembered how close we were.

He visited me in the hospital. What a shock! Still the same old D.

We both divorced, but he remarried. Friends it is, but how cool to find him again.

My daughter is off to see her Marine!!


I was supposed to go to, but my health is not the best and no one wants me stuck in a hospital far away from home. Plus my anxiety was so high, I was really scared. Therefore I am back on anxiety and bipolar meds.

Our Marine is now a PFC, meritoriously promoted from PVT.  He also got the highest combined PFT/CFT. SO PROUD OF THAT BOY.

My sugar was only 130 this morning and that is eating a full dinner (including bad fries…bad, bad, bad LOL) and a snack of popcorn before bed. So tired of pricking my finger. At least I don’t have to prick my belly at the moment. Wait to see what medication the endocrinologist tries next. The Victoza was injection. So are a lot of the new ones they have come up with. That kept my sugars too low since I couldn’t eat with it. NO appetite.

My eyes are getting worse. Must wear my reading glasses for the computer now. I also have bifocals for distance and magnifying glasses for the really small stuff. My eyes are starting to show the diabetes. Kind of scary. Hate to lose my sight. However I am going to go with the fact that my eyesight is fine and nothing is going to go wrong because I am finally watching my diabetes. I put my faith in God, God will it.

I have a chiropractor appointment and a therapy appointment today.
