Dawn left 6 hours ago for a meeting and a movie. Left me to fend for myself. Took a shower, was able to take Chipper out 3 times, and sneak a nap in there too. Had a fried balogna sandwich for breakfast. Am in the process of enjoying my supper now- salad with light Italian dressing.

Dawn came home at about 9:30 last night.
Got my glucose meter to working last night.
Had another 4 inches of the white stuff last night. Expecting 3 to 6 inches more today.. Shoveled the stoops by the 2 front doors of our building, and a shovel wide path on the sidewalk from one door to the other. Then continued out to the 'pet walk' area. Our maintenance guy hasn't made it out this morning with the snow blower yet. Might go to the store later, if the roads get cleared a bit.

Didn't go to the store today, but I did shovel out the parking space of the lady who lives behind me. She pulled her car out, leaving snow that was 2 feet deep on each side, so I scraped right down to the pavement for her. She parks right next to me. I was too tired to shovel on the other side of my car, but I can trudge through it easier than she can. Besides, because I shoveled out my spot yesterday, there's only about 8 inches there. She hadn't driven her car in a few days.

It seems apartment complexes would have snow removal.
Is there an extra charge for that?

I'm not sure what I did yesterday. Today I did very little.
I'm super happy to have sunshine. Angel was more active outside too.
The sun creates more warmth and sets me free from the feeling of being in a winter prison.

Funny you should ask. Snow removal is included in the rent. Our maintenance guy, Randy, shovels the sidewalks and stoops, unless we get a few inches or more. Then, he uses a snow blower, similar to the one I used to have. I sometimes help him with the shoveling.
Our lot is plowed, sometimes twice a day, after snowfalls. However, the plowing is often limited to the lanes down the middle of the parking lots. This is due to the fact that there are so many cars in the parking spaces. (We have no covered spaces) Today, enough of the spaces were open in the back parking lot by me, that Randy could ask each owner on the West side of the lot to move their cars to the East side so the plow guy could clear the spaces on our side, at least. All except one lady who wouldn't answer her door. The plowing had to be done around her car.

At one time shopkeepers in the UK would clear snow outside their shops and then when people slipped on ice that formed they sued so nowadays this is just left on the pavements(sidewalks) which is even more dangerous. It seems to me people will sue for anything and its just rapacious greed which is destroying society.

Hello Margie, LFF and everyone. Happy Valentines Day to all!

I had a bit of a scare about midnight last night. My door knob to my closet somehow jammed (as if it were locked and does not have a lock on the knob at all). We could not get it opened and the closet is where I keep my meds and testing supplies (other than the insulin). I could not take my bedtime insulin without a pen needle. I was in panic mode. Son finally got the door open by chiseling off around the door frame then got inside and took off the door knob. Looks kind of bad but none will see it but me so I am not worried.

Is there a possibility of putting your supplies in a place that cannot become locked?

Apparently I have been absent from some topics lately.
I only responded to those topics which were in my email reminders.

Yesterday I went to my daughter in law, who works as a beautician, and had all that long hair cut off. I went from below my shoulders length to very short. I love the feeling of freedom. She took a ponytail to donate to cancer patients. I made sure it won't go to Locks Of Love as they charge. After the ponytail was cut off, she began the hair snipping and styling. There were two piles of hair, enough for two toupees for men, I have enough hair for two people.

Today:
Leftover soup and coffee for breakfast, yummy.
Too much time spent online.
This is my son's long day at work, so I will spend extra time with Angel.

Enjoy this respite from cold and snow. clap1

If you go to the home page (I have it on my bookmarks bar), you'll see a list of topics posted on, and new topics, scrolling on the right hand side of the screen.

Lightfoot, that is exactly what I do, check the upper-right-hand corner for topics, but I had neglected to do so for awhile. My Bad.

For most of my life, I have gone from very long hair to very short hair.
It breaks the boredom of being same old same old. I find long hair easier because I can brush it into a ponytail, twist it around and put a big clip on it. However, as I age I seem to lose more hair. It's annoying to find long hair everywhere. Also, I look older, more haggard, like a Granny (LOL) with the knot on top of me head. Although someone at Meijer did comment that I looked "Glamorous" once. Like Katherine Hepburn. Still, I like it just as much short, so.

I believe the topic is
"Tell us about your day"
So,

My Day:
My Polish lady didn't call me about ironing last evening.
I called her this morning, no answer, so I went to the
American House, rang the office and speaking with
people learned that she had been taken out sometime
in the last two weeks and was in rehab. I called her sister,
no answer. I tried calling the rehab, got constant busy.
Therefore I have no clue how she is and her 101 B,day
will be Monday.
I honestly pray that the Lord will deliver her from the
misery she is living. She is so ready to go.

We left this morning to go to 'Shipshewana on the Road', where I bought 6 pairs of diabetic socks, size 13-15, and Dawn purchased a jar of pineapple salsa, a bracelet, and a long sleeved t-shirt. Then, when we were headed home, I decided to take Dawn to the casino, so I could try out their buffet. They had ocean perch rather than Lake perch, but it was done to perfection!

Yum,yum LFF- Casino buffets are great. Wish we had a Casino near here but we do not. But unlike the US we have Betting Shops where people gamble and they dont even get a cup of coffee!
Im not in favour of them as they ruin lives when people get addicted. We also have Bingo Halls and a lot of women like to go. My mother once won $15000 at Bingo.

Splurging at the buffet raised my morning sugar reading to 147 today. Well, I won't be doing that for a while anyway.
I'll be taking Dawn to Otsego in a few minutes, and she'll be gone till tonight. I'll be taking Chipper for a walk a little later, but have no other big plans today.

2Anne, thank you.
I'm very tired today because I went to bed at 4 A.M. this morning and up at 7 A.M.
Helen's family went home from the RE-hab facility.
I knew she was slowly dieing and I didn't want her to be alone. I went there about 7:00 P.M. My daughter and Gr.Daughter joined me about 11:00 P.M. Helen was breathing, but unable to talk. At Midnight we sang Happy Birthday to celebrate her 101 years. Colleen and Maggie left about 2:30. At 3:00 I was sitting by Helen's bed,holding her hand. I kept checking her pulse and watching her chest to see if she was breathing. Between 3:00 and 3:05, her hand grew cold, no pulse, one look at her face, I knew she was gone. I had been praying that her suffering would be over. God is merciful. The workers there are so very kind and thoughtful.
I'm ready to sleep.

Yesterday finally make it to the doctor. About my lower back and got some medicine to take now. So hopefully this will do the trick. If not better by Monday will have to go back in again. Just took the medicine a few minutes ago. It's called Prednisone-10 mgs and take one tablet 3 times a day for 2 days. Then twice daily for 2 days and then once daily for one day and then stop.

Watch your blood sugar readings Margie...steriods can cause an increase in your readings.

I have been on that med before and it can be a life safer but sure makes your sugar rise. Wonder why?

Re: What's Going On With Your Day

First of all,
Prednisone (Definition)

Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute? The synthetic has more anti-inflammatory effect; but has less effect.
(From Healthtap.com)
Second, Prednisone makes our bodies metabolize sugar and carbohydrates differently making some people weight gain and experience high levels of sugar in the blood by making our bodies resistant to insulin. In this way, a person may develop diabetes. The rates of Prednisone causing this disorder are 10-24%.
(From Steadyhealth.com)
And third, I almost didn't get here because the link in my notification took me to a non-existent topic because somebody changed the name of this topic.

Class went well. Went over hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, carbs, proteins, different kinds of fats, fiber, how to read labels, carbs in different foods, portions, eating one protein per one carb- all sorts of stuff in 2 hours.
Brought home copies of everything that was gone over, and a packet with samples of seasonings, gluten free shakes, macaroni, and other stuff. I mentioned the problems I've had with my lancets, so on the way out, one of the dieticians gave me a different brand of lancer and lancets. used it tonight- worked fine.

So you have a new puppy now Joyous. Can't wait to see the pictures of Chuckie. As for the medicine I'm taking thanks LLF for all the wonderful information on what's I'm taking. Glad, the doctor told me my blood sugar would go up and not to worry about it. I only have enough medicine for a few days and then done. So pump me up baby. LOL!!! Went and ran a few errands today, I wished we had stayed home. Ran into some very rude people on our journey and they didn't make for a good day. Found out my oldest son was picked up last Tuesday evening on his way back home from Iowa City. Seems his girlfriend and him were driving his girlfriend's mom's car and it was late in the evening. My son got pulled over for not having his lights on and the highway patrol found out my son always didn't have a driver's license. So they had to wait for their ride, in the meantime my son got a big ticket for no driver's license. He has done this before and now adds to the fines he has already. I have warned him over and over again but he won't listen. His girlfriend's mom let him drive but now that's over with. I have the feeling the next time she won't have a vehicle either and my son could end up in jail. Not a happy camper. I found this out from my other son tonight. Still can't understand why people do things without thinking.

I don't know, Margie. Did the State take away your Son's license? Then it's their fault he's driving without one. Isn't it?

I have no big plans for today. Thinking of going to Belle Tire, and order a pair of tire rims to match the ones I put on the front of of my car last year. Thinking about new tires on the front, need an oil change, and might look into a front end alignment, but maybe I should wait till the potholes from the winter get fixed....

They replaced one tv box, the cable wires to box boxes, went up the pole to check out everything, went under the house crawl space and check the splitter of the cable, checked the internet box and had to replace the plug area at the wall, checked the phone box it was ok.
