Loser Monday...


Fat girl is back.... I just took her little badge on the left off last week since I got tired of reporting bad activity and I wasn't working at it anymore. Well now she's back and reluctantly I have to get moving on this again in a big way. Not that I really care to but I realized something bad on Saturday....my diabetes, which has been totally under control since 1998, is now raging again...B-A-D! I had suspicions, if I admit it to myself. The last hA1-C test wasn't that great and the doc asked me to start testing my blood again...which I did not do because I hate pushing that finger pricker. SO Saturday on the way home from grocery shopping I realized that I couldn't really see that well. Usually my first side effect of too high levels. So I faced facts and plucked up the courage to finally stick my finger and whoa...not good. Very not good.

So me and fatty over there will have to be back on a serious eating schedule and no more sugar. Geez, I hate having to deal with all this again. Sticking my fingers. I think I'll get one of those machines that need way less blood and save my sewing fingers. Soooo, I have lost 5 pounds since the beginning and that's where I start again.

The other day while checking blogs I went to Crazy Mom Quilts and she linked to some cool earrings that inspired the colors of her kids new quilts. SO I had to go see what inspired her and wow! The earrings are to die for. I love colorful bead earrings and these were so cute I had to order some. Don't ya just love those yellow apples?

Oh I do still sew you know. yes, quite a bit. I finished my new mini Easter kit from Jan Patek, but I hate the red border fabric so I have to find another and do the borders. I'm also sewing the border applique for the tumblers, and doing the Nine Orange Pumpkins blocks for the ABC sampler quilt

Yes, your health is of most importance...take care of yourself! Wanted to ask...have I missed something....were we getting more readings of your old letters?

Really sorry to hear of your illness. I had to stick Mom's fingers every day, the poor baby. I felt so sorry for her.

I too have to get moving about my blood sugar numbers. Somehow, ten pounds jumped on this past year. Yes, get one of the newer glucometers. They are much easier on the fingers.

It is hard to keep an eye on your health when you are under so many other stresses. You and your family are in my prayers. Hang in there!
