I got Orzo's food and then went to the grocery store for a couple of things. I went over to the produce department and found Asparagus for either $1.47 or $1.27/lb, which is the least I have ever seen it around here. Then I went and looked at the blueberries they had out. The 6 oz packages (conventionally grown) were 2 for $4, which I was thinking looked pretty good. Then looked at the larger packages (18 oz) and they were organic for $3.88. That really looked good to me, so I got a package (will have to freeze some). I am on food stamps and have nothing left in my checking account, so had to get them with food stamps, but there was something wrong with the program and it wouldn't read them as food, thus charging cash and tax. The cashier couldn't get it to fix it, so called a manager over and he took the charge off and put them in my bag. Wow! I got them free. What a blessing.

I have been working most of the day to make some booties for a program they are having at church. They want socks and swadling blankets, but I don't have any idea how to make them or the money for them, so am trying to do the booties instead. I am hoping I can get them done in time. They need them by Sunday.

I am a few days behind and trying to catch up. Tuesday was a busy day. Our snow was light and dry, so no ice to worry about to get out to pickleball Then had a foster dog visit. I didn't get him because he could get out between my gate and fence. I will try to get that fixed, but the little foster didn't like me anyway. Unusual reaction for a dog to me. After that I went to a class on seed starting and watched the class before it where they made a Grow Lab (frame to hold the grow lights on, mainly). The class cost $75 more because it included all the parts for it. I sat down to watch one lady putting hers together and ended up helping her a bit because it kept falling over on her. By the time I got home I was almost dead to the world.

Wednesday I went to another rec center to play pickleball. Then played again today for my regular day. Boy, it was cold getting there today with the temperature dropping to 5 degrees when I left for it. It was much warmer when I came home.

Tomorrow I need to go get Orzo's food exchanged at the Pet Food Pantry. He's being even more picky about his food now.

Hope everything is going well for all of you.

I have to get back on my schedule before DH retired. My blood sugar is all over the place and that is why I am so tired. Today I did much better getting back to my schedule. DH doesn't understand diabetes even though he went with me to a a diabetic education class .Do hope both of you are doing well.

Sunday: Will we a quiet Saturday. Jas is still not feeling the best. But hoping he feels better as the day goes by.

Got a phone call that my hearing aides wonít be ready till Tuesday the 25th. Apparently they are manufactured in China (which I should have checked out). Not sure what will happen. Guess things are pretty backed up. Well, just have to wait and see.

So . . .. . slow day today!

Saturday; Out to breakfast. It was so nice! Glad we just had a quiet dinner here @ home. We were both a little tired, and just wanted to relax, so we stayed in. Nice.

Little less bitter cold today. The wind has calmed considerably. That makes a huge difference.

HUGS and enjoy Saturday!

Darlene: So sorry itís so difficult to find a low cost vet. **SIGH**

Awwww, I hope that you feel better. So sorry

At least I found out that he probably can get his teeth worked on. Unfortunately, I can't afford that much. I've been trying the clinics for low income and they cost as much as my regular vet (where they are supposedly one of the most expensive). The one I contacted started at $100 over my regular vet and the regular vet quote was after seeing his teeth.

I am not sure what I did last night, exactly, but it made me sick. I am just getting so tired of that. I stayed laying on my back most of the night and just on the right side so that nothing could get through the hernia, but it still hurts. Guess I just ate too much last night, though. So far today it has been a slice of holey bread and cup of peppermint tea. And sitting under an electric blanket and hot pack.

Hope your day is going well.

I thought I was doing good this month. Gas price went down, so I went over and finished filling my tank. I had half a tank and the pump was still running after 20 gallons. That''s ridiculous. I don't have a 50 gallon tank, just 35. But was still doing okay on funds until I tried to get Orzo's nails trimmed. The place I've been taking him has decided they need reservations and certificate of rabies. He is an indoor cat, so I didn't have that. I ended up at the vet clinic getting a check-up and rabies vaccine and the nail trim. Nail trim was included, but they have raised prices, so had to pull more money off my overdraw account. Hope I can cover the rest of my expenses now. I did find out that he still needs his teeth taken care of soon.

The vet tech came back with him after trimming his nails and was just holding him in her arms instead of having him in his carrier. She said she just couldn't put him down because he was so sweet. That is a cat that was dumped outside and that no one wanted to adopt when we saw him 6 years ago. One who just hopped in my lap 10 minutes after my friend left to go home (he liked her more than me until that time).

Sandra, I haven't ever been able to sleep like a log. Always kicking and moving around. It's no wonder my bed is always a mess. Last night I slept in the recliner and slept the entire night through. What a surprise.

I have been feeling better today. I even got my steak eaten that I was wanting to eat yesterday. That along with a sweet potato that I steamed. Only ate almost half the steak, so have more for tomorrow. I think I will have a little thing of Jello if my calories and carbs aren't too high.

I did make an appointment with my PCP. Of course, it is only 3 days before I have the next appointment with the surgery department. Don't know how that is going to work out for what I want to know. It is the soonest I could get an appointment. A month and a half. So I was looking up what to do for fatty liver and the symptoms. That does cause fatigue. Main thing one thing said was green tea, so I got green tea chai since I don't like green tea that well.

I have not been feeling well today and yesterday, somewhat. I was going to have a nice sirloin tonight (one from the good butcher shop, not the regular store butcher) but I decided my gut couldn't handle it. I had an enchilada, instead.

I tried going to bed earlier last night, but didn't help with my sleepiness. I am not sure what to do about that. I just keep falling asleep every afternoon. It took me over an hour to fall asleep last night, then got woken up with my stomach ache not long after. I finally got up and got in the tub for a soak. That got me more sleep and after I went to bed I was able to sleep the rest of the night. I am getting worried about my health problems other than just the hernia and diabetes. I think I will try to go see my regular doctor. Might not do any good, but I will see.

Snowing again today. Suppose to be 15 at the time to leave for pickleball, but I missed Tuesday because of the ice, so I would like to try to go tomorrow if it isn't too icy. Just take the major roads until the last one I would have to take. I think that game is all that keeps me going right now. Not because of depression, but for health reasons.

That tax filing is really a pain. Hope you can finally get it all figured out.

We still had cold today, but the sun was out so some of the snow was melting. It is definitely icy on the side streets. They said the single digits this morning early. Due to the cold and ice I didn't get to pickleball. This afternoon I did get out for some shopping and found out that Pete hadn't gotten to the walks and drive yet. He was out for some meeting early and got home while I was working on my driveway. Next to the truck was Ice about a half inch thick with 6 to 10 inches of snow on top. (Melted toward the front of the truck, deeper farther back). It didn't take a long time, but was hard work for me. Pete got home while I was working and got the sidewalks done while I finished the drive.

Got a few things from the store today. Went to Dollar Tree looking for what a friend told me she used on her iron skillet and found they have Brillo. I don't need one of those big boxes anyway, so that was pretty good to get for a dollar.

Feeling better after yesterday I didn't eat the rest of the day except really late I had a few graham crackers. Instead I was drinking herbal tea. Some peppermint and some maple ginger. I figured one of those could help.

YET ANOTHER LETTER from the IRS indicating they DID NOT owe a return on Mom and Dadís last and final tax return from 2017~ looking right @ the return, they DO!!! Soooo, yet another call to the CPA who is going to try to straighten out this mess once and for all. Jeez Louise! Seriously, I think monkeys could do a better job @ this!

Sorry about your knee, Sandra. I know that people on insulin don't really want to be on it if they can help it. If I can manage to get the carbs low enough I can manage the BS better. Just need to lower the carbs. I am not good at that.

Today is an example of not being able to get the carbs down. I didn't have anything thawed to eat and had hamburger gravy on bread. It didn't do my IBS too well. I woke up after a nap really sick to my stomach. Tonight I am having herbal tea for supper. Heck, I don't have anything else anyway. Just more bread, which I am not going to have.

Sunday: Went to the grocery store yesterday and the post office. Wanted to get those things done and glad I did. Snowing. Still holding to the 3-5 in. but weíll see. AT the rate itís falling right now, I think 5 in. will be pretty accurate.

Otherwise, learned the sad news that my dear cousin passed away yesterday. She was 4 yrs. younger than I. She had fought adenocystic cancer (cancer of the salivary glands Ė spread to her lungs and liver) for more than a decade. I will miss her sense of humor. RIP sweet Ginny. You have lots of beloveds welcoming you home.

And it was the 38th anniversary of my brotherís passing (and would have been his 65th birthday). Still miss him daily. He was a good guy.

HUGS and blessings. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Sandra: Oh my gosh! That is a total blessing that your DH found you! I hope you feel better after some rest! I can imagine how tired you must be w/a blood sugar that low!

Darlene: Right now it has been snowing all day. Tapered off for a while, but now, it's worse than ever. Expectations of 5 in. of snow will probably be exceeded. YIKES.

Hugs ladies.

Sandra, I hope you are doing better today. That is one reason I won't take anything that works like insulin. Since I am alone here there would be no one to find out if I had a problem. I was on metformin for a few years, but that caused bad diarrhea so I keep trying to work things out with diet and exercise. It would work if I wouldn't get in moods to eat sweets.

We had snow all day Friday, okay weather yesterday, and it started snowing again early this morning and I think is expected to all day again. Forecast is for snow most of the days this week. The streets are all icy because of the couple warm days between snows. Consequently I have stayed home today.

Friday: Miss Lilly continues to do well. She is liking her whole foods diet! Imagine that Ė she likes chicken! (Thatís what she had yesterday and today Ė chicken breast) and carrots.

Friday and just going to catch up on the housework. Then we have an appointment w/our financial planning in the afternoon.

Glad I made crockpot pot roast and veggies.

Hugs and TGIF!

Darlene: Yes, I am cooking her food. Lean proteins, veggies and a few berries.

Sounds like youíre making progress w/your counters. Thatís good.

3-5 in. snow this weekend. Oh well, not bad as it could be this time of the year.

Oh sorry to hear about your zipper situation. Glad you have a parka, though, for when itís cold.

I'm glad that Lilly likes her food. Is it homemade?

It got warm enough yesterday to go out and there was some sun, but not a lot. Still made it to pickleball and then went on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Haven't done that for a couple years. I had to ask how to speed it up. I got some more pickleball balls and a sanding sponge to work on the butcher block counters. I think I got the one I have been working on smooth, but it isn't without a lot of stains.

My legs are sore from yesterday. I think that I should keep trying the treadmill, though, until it is nice enough to play pickleball outside. They have put an hourly restriction on the courts at Eisenhower, but there is some talk that they will be building some courts at another close park. If they do I will play there.

We have had snow all day today. It is suppose to be warm tomorrow (if they are correct this time), then 23 or 24 and snow on Sunday. If it is snowing I don't want to drive in it.

Wednesday my coat zipper messed up and I can't get it to open to get the coat off. It unzips most of the way to the bottom, just not enough to open the bottom, so I have to step out of it. So for the cold days I am ending up with the heavy parka that I actually had purchased at the grocery store. It is really bulky, though.

Thursday: Cold day, a bit of sunshine yesterday. Some snow overnight, but nothing major. My friends in IL got socked!

Miss Lilly is liking her whole foods diet! OF COURSE she is Ė chicken, sweet potato, or potato, salmon, carrots. She like all of them. Imagine that.

Quiet day. Just doing things around the house. Like paying bills. Thatís always fun1 NOT.

HUGS

Sounds like you have a few projects going! Good job.

I'm glad that Lilly's problem isn't any worse and that she will be fine with monitoring.

We had a slightly warmer day today and sunny, so I did get out for a little while to get detergent and kitty litter. Also picked up just a couple more things. I was watering the plants today and cleaning off the table some are on and needed a trash bag. I have a box that I've only used 3 from, but I can't find it, so got another box of those. Hope I don't misplace that one, too.

I have a stack of books back on the floor now, since cleaning off that table. So I need to go through those and see whether to keep or throw away. Or maybe I can donate them to the wig shop. The one donates wigs to those who cannot afford them, like me. One of the things they have to make money is to sell used books. I have gotten a few from there and they actually started me on some of the mysteries I like. I also have started on the counters, but I need to sand them to finish cleaning them.

Wednesday: Well, Miss Lilly does have a liver abnormality, but it is minor in comparison to what was suspected. There are microscopic abnormalities in the blood vessels in the liver. No symptoms, and generally does not require treatment. So, it DOES require lifelong monitoring and careful nutrition and exercise/rest (sounds kinda sparky, doesnít it!) THAT I can live with. So, on the whole, feel good about Lillyís road ahead. Just have to watch her.

Time to breathe! Looking like weíre in for a bit of snow overnight, but nothing major.

Hugs and happy Wednesday.

Sandra: HUGS and stay warm.

Monday: Had a nice birthday party for Ry! He was happy w/the pizza and cupcakes. Not much pizza left! They sure can eat a lot! It was nice to have the kids over. Miss Lilly got a workout, too.

Well, all signs point to an early spring, so the little groundhog says. HOPE thatís right!

Well, off soon to my audiology appointment. That will be good to be one step closer to having a hearing aide.

HUGS and hereís to a marvelous Monday.

Didn't make it to the walk yesterday. Gut problems were early and then left, but I got a migraine. I can't believe I got one of those.

It was 72 and sunny today. My afternoon was spent getting perishable food. The church gave me another box of food today (non-perishable) though I had said I didn't need one. Guess they didn't get my message. I wish the temperature would stay within 20 degrees of that, but tomorrow is suppose to be 30 and snowing, Tuesday 18 and snowing.

Last night I got crazy. I was looking for something and started cleaning at 10 p.m. I got hot about 11:30, so I finally went to bed. Who in the world starts cleaning house at 10 at night when they have all day to do it. The migraine was gone by 8, so I could have started then.

Sandra, I am glad you like your furniture.

Saturday: Got housecleaning done yesterday and cupcakes made and in the freezer.

Day #12 w/o sunshine! GAH!

Miss Lilly had a good day. Eating and drinking and lots of energy. Seems to be feeling ok.

Out to breakfast this morning. Wonderful as always.

Have to start on writing articles for my nursing license credentials. LORD. Getting an early start.

Hugs and enjoy Saturday.

Darlene: Oh boy. Sorry to hear of the health issues you are facing! Wishing you all the best.

Glad you got to go out after your appointment, though. Thatís nice.

HOPE that your gut cooperated for a walk today. Good luck.

Sandra: Thanks for the prayers. Yes, concerned about Miss Lilly.

OH man, your 4th new Dr! thatís a lot of change.

Good luck picking up the new furniture and TV.

Wow, that is a high delivery cost.

I have actually seen some that would be worse, though. I was ordering my horse's feed ahead to be picked up at the store, but it came up with the delivery charge to deliver to my house for some reason. The delivery charge was something like 4 times the cost of the feed. Considering I had to go most of the way to the store just to go see Fancy it was no problem to pick the feed up at the store. I lost Fancy last year.

Sandra, do they have residents where you are going? Like they are a teaching clinic? Where I go they are part of a teaching hospital (get a lot of residents from the University of Colorado) and they are different every time I go except for my primary care doctor. Even with her she was a resident and had to apply to work in the same system. I did have to go to a different clinic when she moved, though. I have a terrible time trusting doctors. I hope that your new doctor is good and you don't have to change again.

I am trying to figure out what different exercise I might start doing. I don't really like walking, but maybe if I take my camera and just go to different places to walk it would be nicer for me. We had a terrible time convincing those doctors yesterday that I actually do do some exercise. She must think that pickleball is some kind of game played on the computer, even though I explained it was played on a court like tennis (other than that is played with a paddle and hard plastic ball). She continued to tell me I had to start doing some kind of exercise. If I could afford to drive to another recreation center I could play one more day a week, though that would only be for about 45 minutes if that. The next closest center I could play at only has it for an hour and a half, while the closest one has it for 3 hours (plus however early I get there) each day and I play 2 days a week ending up with 1 1/2 or 2 hours each day. Anyway, if I can get my gut to be nice today I will go for a walk.

Hope you all are doing well today.

Today I had an appointment with the surgery department at Denver Health. Not so fun. I have like 2 months to lose 25 pounds so I can have the hernia fixed in April. Did not want that and I am scared to undergo surgery again. They are pretty insistent that it really needs to be done because they are sure that is what caused the problems I had in December. Also found out why they want me to go to the gut doctor. My liver is bad, I guess. Not sure what to do about that.

My friend and I went to a Chinese restaurant after the appointment. They didn't have my usual dish, but what they had was really good. I had something called Strange Aromatic Chicken. Strange name for s food dish.

Have to get back to the laundry again. I know I have enough for one more load. Donn't know about the last load. That might have to wait for a while.

Wow, that is high for postage! The worst I have has was $30 or $35, but that was overseas, I think.

Yesterday I had pickleball, then a very little shopping before I came home. Took a nap, then got the problem I was having with a new vacuum that my friend gave me (her old one) and started on some laundry. Today I am finishing that laundry and starting some more. I can't do everything until I can get some more soap. Have to get some sweaters washed, though, because it is going to be cold tomorrow. Other than that I have been hanging up clothes and putting them in drawers, trying to get my bedroom neater.

Barbara, I hope that Lilly will be okay.

Wednesday: Well, got the call from the vet that Lillyís lab values have not improved. So we now have an appt. on 04 February w/an internal med vet to check out her (ultrasound of the liver). **SIGH** I am just perplexed w/all of this. But have to follow through. Weíll see what the ultrasound shows. Prayers!

Otherwise it was a low key Tuesday Ė had a few things to get @ the store, walked Miss Lilly and just made the phone calls to get her appointment set up.

Hugs and hope itís a wonderful Wednesday.

Sandra: Wow! I don't think -- outside of sending something to my DS when he lived in Alaska -- that I've ever spent that much to send a package! YIKES!

Glad the house is done. Good luck!

Sandra, I'm glad your house is getting close to done.

I am thinking that Ted won't be the right one for what I want to do, but I don't know what will happen since I put in the application. I didn't realize he hasn't been released by the vet for adoption yet. The lady fostering him wasn't sure about things and I have never adopted before, so it is confusing to me, too. I don't have a crate big enough for him and he is so large footed that he could accidentally squash Orzo even if he isn't going after him. He is to afraid of people for a therapy dog and I would like to be able to do that, though I'm not sure I can.

Today I had to get gas and my bread for toast. That is what I can eat best, though even it causes problems. The store also had scallops on sale (the kind that is frozen in a bag), so I got a bag of them, and a potato.

Sunday: Freezing rain/snow and gray yesterday. NOT good. But we did get out to breakfast. It was nice. Our fire fighter friend did get a call, but it was short, so he was still able to enjoy breakfast w/us when he returned.

Going to tackle the bathrooms today and the floors. They all need cleaning!

HUGS and blessings.

We were working all day here. I started with cutting down some bushes by the fence so people could get in until I had to sit down and rest my back. Then came in and did a little in the house until my friends got here. Mark and my neighbor worked on the fence all afternoon and got most of it (the top part, which is all we could do) done. There are 2 sections left to get the boards the rest of the way done. They used some 4x4 posts and cut them down to fit and put in to hold the boards. Pete is going to finish it tomorrow.

Anne and I did a lot in the house (well, she got more done than me). She had given me a new vacuum, so wanted to show me how well it works. It is bagless and has attachments. I was separating my recycle and the other trash, which took longer. She just put it all in the trash bag. Books and notebooks are separated and everything is gone from the center of the room. I still have to get some other things done in here. We also got my bed straightened out. It is something that I couldn't completely do alone because I needed to have a second person to move the one blanket that was sticking, but was mostly off on one side of the bed.

We also went and saw the dog I was interested in. He is definitely a mix and a bit larger than I thought. I've never had a dog as big as this guy. Blue was that tall, but not as heavy. Ted has huge feet. He acts like he was abused, maybe kicked or hit. I am not sure he is the right dog for me, but he is a sweet one.

Today I was in and out. I took photos of my fence (actually neighbor's) to see if we can find a way to fix it. It is all rotting. Why the former neighbors had to have that kind of wood fence is beyond me and then another former neighbor had things all torn up when they put a huge garage in and never fixed it. There is also a tree that refuses to die and went through part of the fence. So it is a mess. Neither Pete or I can afford to replace it, so we're going to try to fix it again. Then I was taking stuff out to the trash, going to the store and get kitty litter for Orzo. The stuff I've been getting just doesn't work. It gets completely soaked in just two days. Never had so much trouble with the Petco brand.

I've been picking up in the living room and have also had to work on more in the kitchen (mouse found something else to get into that I thought wasn't there anymore). Then the mouse moved to the bathroom to get into the cat food (I was putting the food on the counter in there). So had to work on things in there. I need to get more done in the living room, though, so I can get a couple chairs moved around. I want my big recliner moved to where I am, this chair moved over by the window, and not sure if I will keep the 3rd chair or not. The back of it won't come back up all the way. The big chair needs to have the holes covered where one cat and then some puppies tore it up.

Going to see Ted (will rename him Teddy, at least) tomorrow.

Glad your house is getting done in a hurry. Hope the nutritionist can help you.

I had pickleball this morning, then an aromatherapy class this afternoon. After we heard about the oils she had brought with to the class, we made some sprays with the ones we chose. I chose lavender and rosemary because they are both anti-inflammatory and help with pain (I need that for my back problems), Clary Sage for helping lower cortisol, and Ylang Ylang, which I can't remember why I chose.

Had some Chinese food for lunch and dinner.

Got through the eye doctor's appointment fine today. He said I can see well enough to get my driver's license. I can't see too well now, though, even though it's been a few hours. Well, it will be cleared up by morning.

Going downtown was rather cold today. It was sunny and around 50, but cold wind blowing while I was waiting for the light rail and bus. It's the only way I can go down there unless I have a ride, which I will get next week. My friend said she would take me as soon as I said when it was.

I have been messaging a lady who is fostering a little male cattle dog. I might get him. He isn't too prey driven at this point, so I think he will be good around Orzo. We'll see. I've been messaging back and forth with her and she took the post off of Nextdoor. So there was me and one other person told her to message him. So I am really working to clean up around here.

Hopefully I will be able to make it through pickleball tomorrow. I don't like it when I have to skip it.

Wednesday: Have my appointment w/the audiologist today. We shall see what the verdict is about the kind of hearing aide that will help me. I have my own opinion after researching, but we shall see.

Sun again, so thatís nice! Still cold, but not bad compared to what it was over the weekend.

HUGS and wonderful Wednesday!

Darlene: Sorry you're having pain. Good luck w/your Dr. appointments.

I have been doing a bit more cleaning today. Got the kitchen table cleaned except need to do a little more washing. Got the stove mostly cleaned off. Have to do the side I usually cook on, but it is a case of washing the splashes.

Didn't go to pickleball because I was having back, neck, shoulder, and hip pains. Didn't really think I would make it through this time.

Tomorrow is my eye appointment. Don't really like that or the one next week with the surgery department.

Monday: Had a quiet Sunday. Had to clear the apron of the drive this morning after the snow plow went by, but that was the extent of being outdoors. Way too cold.

Today promises to be a little warmer and w/o the wind it does feel warmer already. Thankful for that. Hoping to even get a glimpse of the sun today!

Ready to tackle Monday!

HUGS


Sandra: Sorry you have to be on insulin, but hope it helps! Can you see a dietitian? That helped me a lot to figure out the nutrition part of the equation. Good luck to you.

Saturday: Well it started snowing @ 5 pm last evening! We have probably 6 in. maybe more. Will shovel and snow blow when itís daylight. Glad we went out to breakfast yesterday! Weíd not make it today. The snow hasnít stopped yet, so may have to wait till later this morning if itís still snowing @ daybreak. Looks like shoveling and snow blowing are going to be the activities for the day.

Stay safe if youíre in the path of the storm.

HUGS and enjoy Saturday.

Darlene: Yes, we had a great time!

Sandra: Hope youíre feeling better. Glad youíre seeing the Dr. soon.

Sandra, pickleball is a mix between tennis and ping pong. The court is a little smaller than a tennis court, but is also with a net like tennis. It's played with a paddle similar to a ping pong paddle, but larger, and a plastic ball with holes in it.

It wasn't all that unsuccessful, just poor play. Still fun, though.

Sorry you aren't feeling well, Sandra. I hope that you are able to figure it out.

Barbara, your breakfast sounds really nice.

Friday: Decided weíll probably go to breakfast this morning as the weather looks pretty nasty tomorrow morning. And today is Jasí 68th birthday! It was really nice and I guess, meant to be that we went for breakfast this morning. It was Jasí birthday and another gentleman (who was there w/his wife) shared it was HIS birthday as well and he was also 68. So we made a party of it. Lots of fun. The owners sent a tiny little cake! Soooo sweet. Just love that place.
Happy birthday, sweetie!

Had a nice time catching up w/Clara. She surely is busy!

Hugs and have a great FriYaY and weekend!

Darlene: Sorry your pickleball play was unsuccessful.

OH boy, that sounds like a scam (the ďIíll buy your houseĒ postcard). Definitely wouldnít call a 900#! Youíre right to call the DA or AG.

Sandra: Does the Dr. have a plan to help you?? Yikes! A blood sugar of 500 is unbelievable. I can only imagine how lousy you felt!

I am doing well, thanks. Getting ready for a storm event this weekend. Supposed to get up to 6 in. of snow. Who knows. But ready for it if it comes.

Hugs, ladies and have a good weekend.

Went to my diabetic doctor today haven't been feeling good with my blood sugar going up and down had to have a blood test she thinks I have LADA which is between 1 & 2 and have had it since I was diagnosed 7 years ago my blood sugar was 500 at that time it took me 2 years on Metformin and still it wouldn't come down much so I was put on insulin.

Darlene what is pickleball?

Had pickleball this morning. It was really hard for me to get started because I am still a little sore from Tuesday. It was one of those bad days for pickleball. I just couldn't hit anything.

Went to the address where some harassing "let us buy your house" postcards keep coming from. I get them every other week and they won't stop sending them even though I have asked at least 20 times. Turns out it is just a reception center and the company isn't even in this state, apparently. The phone number on the card apparently is an answering service. I was given a new number, but it is a 900 number, so one of those pay as you go numbers. I will call the DA or AG here and see if they will do something about this company.

Came home and started to do something, got too sleepy and took a long nap

Clara will be over tonight for a pizza party. Her only day off, so that will be nice. John isnít off, so weíll celebrate Jasí birthday later. His birthday isnít till Friday.

Hugs and enjoy Friday Jr.

Darlene: Glad that you got a long nap in!

Wednesday: Well, a day @ home today! Supposed to have more rain/snow mix today.

Jas is having his 68th birthday on Friday, but weíre going to celebrate tomorrow as Clara is off. John isnít, but we sort of celebrated yesterday with them when we were together.

So have to get a few things done.

Hugs

Darlene: Glad you got to go to the Cattle Show. Iíll bet you did lots of walking!

Sandra: So sorry youíre still not feeling good. Glad that your blood sugar is stabilizing, though.

Still don't feel that good yet. My blood sugar is stable but it always takes me a few days to feel normal.

Sandra, I hope that you are feeling okay now. That would not make a person feel well with that low blood sugar, I don't think.

I went to the Stock Show with a friend of mine. He only goes to see what is in the booths. I am more the type to watch part of the show. Don't go to the rodeo anymore because it costs too much anymore, but I will watch the cattle judging and the horse show that isn't ticketed. This evening was the reined cow horse event and I watched part of it. They had very clumsy calves that kept falling down. I haven't ever seen that happen before. The horses don't bump the cattle, but the cattle are suppose to move away from the pressure of the horse being close.

Anyway, we did a lot of walking. Other than the time we had lunch we were on our feet from 1:30 to 7 or so. My feet are sore and my back is sore.

Monday: Got exercise moving snow. But could have been a lot worse, thatís for sure.

Lilly goes to the vet for her recheck and then weíre meeting John and his family for lunch. He is off work and itís Karleighís birthday.

Hugs and hereís to a wonderful Monday. Go Packers!

UPDATE: Just heard from the vet and Lillyís one liver value is within normal range. The other has come down significantly, so will recheck in 2 weeks. PHEW and praises!

Darlene: Well, hope that the weather coopeates for the show.

Sandra: Glad that the contractors are working hard. Hope the work gets done quickly.

Sorry you are getting hit with so much snow.

We had a pretty nice day yesterday. I headed to church and then went shopping. Tomorrow we are going to the Stock Show, so I went to find something I could take for lunch. I am going to make a chicken sandwich, I think. That or just chicken marsala (found a sauce to fix that), with some Jello or yogurt and maybe salad. Not sure I can eat that much, though. I looked at some roasts, but the smallest they had was around $18 and I didn't want to spend that much at once, though I might have been able to cut it into smaller roasts and froze them. That would have made good sandwiches.

I haven't looked to see what the weather is going to be like today, but I think warm tomorrow. We always have this reputation for "Stock Show weather," meaning cold and snowy for the entire two weeks. I don't know why they are always saying that. It doesn't usually end up cold and snowy the entire run, just a few days. Oh, well, if they think it is so cold and snowy maybe that keeps some people home so it isn't quite as crowded. As if that would ever happen. I am wondering if I can take something to drag for if I get anything there since I am not suppose to lift over 10 pounds, but it would probably take too much room. Can't afford to get much of anything, anyway, so probably won't get even close to 10 pounds. Maybe the jalapeno jelly (there is a place that has really good jelly).

Hope it warms up for you guys.

Sunday: Snow, snow, snow. LOTS of snow. Drifting, so hard to tell exactly how much, but I am guessing about 6 in. The wind . . .. wow . . . howling. The only good part is, definitely not as much snow as predicted. Thatís do-able.

Going nowhere today.

Have a blessed Sunday.
