Happy May Day everyone!
I remember making May baskets and hanging them on people's door knobs and waiting for them to find them, when I was a little girl. Where I live now for the past 21 years, that is not a thing up here. It is such a pleasant thing, to see someone get a happy surprise. I don't have any flowers to make May baskets this year. I would make little paper baskets with clover flowers and violets that would be growing in the grass, maybe some honey suckle or little yellow flowers from the bushes we had grown in front of my childhood home.
So I got to sleep in today. Kind of. My hubby is on call this week and he left me about 10 p,m. to go to the neighboring state to fix or test an issue. He got back at 3 a.m. I fell asleep on the couch and moved upstairs to bed about 1 a.m. I got up when he got home to go to the bathroom and fell back asleep. Weird dreams! I woke up with sore knuckles on my hands and later than normal for me. Yesterday I was wishing to sleep in but nope, up at 5 a.m. like typical. So I was happy to get some extra time in bed. As I was lying in bed it seemed like my belly was flatter. Not just flatter from laying flat but less there.
I got up and tested my blood and it was 113! FASTING! WOW!!!!HOLY COW I just jumped a bunch of numbers! I was so excited! Now THAT is what I am looking for! On a roll for me. I got to keep this up. My scale is still hidden so I asked my hubby if I looked like my belly seemed flatter, he said "yeah".
I am so encouraged by that number. My daytime numbers have been great too! Everything seems on track. Too little too late for the doctor I am positive! But not too little too late for me! Life goes on after the doctor appointment, and I feel more strength internally to sit through that appointment. I have told myself I will weigh when I get weighed in at the doctor. I get my labs, I think, on May 11. Then the doctor a week after. So it is coming up FAST. Gosh, May already. It is just flying by!
Virtual May Day baskets for everyone! Start your month on a great step forward!
