Goodbye and Good Riddens to 2009

What a crappy year and I for one am glad to see it go and say goodbye . I want 2010 to find me in Ohio and find me with a job and hopefully a better year and days than 2009 has been . I dont think I am the only one who feels this way . I must admit though this has been the year I met some of the greatest ppl in the world and those people know who I am talking about my dear pen friends and my blog friends and hope to still have them with me this time next year . I cant say I remember the day I started this blog unlike some of you who remember the hour and the date and all that good stuff .Im too old to worry about it . LOL !! But I did want to wish all of my blogger friends a very happy new year . I think about all the ppl we lost this year and who are gone to us untill we get to heaven and see them . I try not to dwell on that too much because my faith tells me I will see them again when I get to my heavenly home . I hope I do not offend anyone with my post but most of you are people of faith and understand . I hope all of you have a wonderfull new year and let us all enjoy the coming year .

My little one

It is hard to believe that this little dog went and grew up on us and turned into the other guy . This little guy has just brought so much into my life and cant quite figure out how they do that . I think when our children grow up we turn to pets . Or maybe I m just crazy .

This was our weather for christmas

It was rainy and nasty this christmas here in florida where we live

I hated the fact that all it did was rain all day christmas day . But there were alot of ppl on the beach despite the rain . I have several more photos. I think you all get the idea about the weather . Not pleasant at all .
The lady walking , she was walking a big white dog and two little chihuahuas and I thought that was just adorable with her and those dogs . Oh well hope you enjoy the photos .

I am loving the pictures of everyones christmas

I am loving looking at everyones christmas pictures . It looks like everyone had a wonderfull christmas . I hope this is a sign of a good recovering economy and that everyone is back to work for 2010. My concentration in 2010 is to save enough money to move and get to Ohio and take care of my husbands familys resting places . It seems his sister no longer wants to do it and it costs her too much in time and gas . I hope that my kids never feel that way about my resting place . Oh well that is a totally other matter . Anyway keep on posting christmas pictures I love them and love seeing you all with your bed heads LOL !!! You all are brave . Im so glad that christmas turned out so well for everyone .

Some good news and some bad news

Well glad to announce that Natalie the little girl that was kidnapped is now home and safe . Thanks to an alert police officer for pulling over the suspects car when he made a u turn . God sure was looking out for little Natalie . The sad news now is that the little maryland girl who dissapeared was found christmas day , expired in the woods . However I know that God was with her every minute of ever hour . I pray for her family and those who knew her . Too much of this sadness is going on and something must be done to stop it . I think there should be no parole for child molesters or predators , you do it once ,you will automatically get a death sentence ,yes Im all for the death penalty . Im sorry if this offends some of you . In my opinion there should never be a life sentence for predators or molesters . I dont think the justice system is doing enough to protect our kids and mothers please watch your kids like a bunch of hawks .Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

I am afraid another trip to the dr is in order

Well it looks as though I will be heading back to the dr after christmas . Im afraid I have an inkling that something has not cleared up as it should have and my whole body is sore . I also have swollen lymph nodes . I think I have something viral going on and dont even talk about my blood sugars . They are totally all over the place and dont really expect them to get any better until all of this crap goes away !!! Im just ticked that whatever is going on will not go away despite all the meds I have taken. well I hope you all find a bunch of pressies under the tree and lots of fun and I want to see all the kiddies photos of opening gifts . I hope everyone is well and stays that way . Much love and Merry Christmas to all . Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

I also have a mouth full of cold sores so folks there you have it . Nice way to spend a christmas and a christmas eve . Im done really done and over it . Not to mention that my numbers are all over the place and the mini m&ms is not helping at all .Oh well this christmas is not any different than any other and the husband is not doing really good at the christmas thing either . Bah humbug !!!

Man could things get any crappier

Okay here we go the hub bub

Well I am off to the post office again today to mail some last minute things and of course they will not make it there until after christmas but hey at least they will get there and I am all for starting a new movement maybe new years cards ? Dont laugh it is just a thought for forgetful people . LOL !!!I hope all of you are finally done with all the running around you have to do and I for one am so not wanting to stand in line at the post but so goes it . It is my fault and I have to suffer for being so lazy and sick . Just when I get better I have to subject myself to this . Oh and for those of you going through crazy numbers it is the stress from the holidays and it will calm down after the new year hits . I hope so anyway and I am hoping my crazy numbers will go away after I am finished with these meds . I want to say to everyone I am so enjoying all of your christmas cards and seeing pictures of your family and all the little ones so darling and hopefully in their lifetime we will have a cure for the big d . I must also apologize for not having pics in my cards just did not have to do them this year but will next year . It is always nice to see who you are talking too .

again another good day

well another good day today after a stressfull night of coughing . I was coughing up untill about 10 pm and then fell off to sleep untill about 3 am and then the course of coughing started up again and then fell off to sleep again and woke up at 9 am and headed to the post office and what a trial that was . I stood in line at the counter for one hour and I keep forgetting that it is christmas time and the post is always busy then . More so than other times . Oh well we will talk soon everyone . I hope you all are getting my christmas cards okay and i want to make sure I get everyone . Oh well talk to you all soon . Much love .

well today seems to be a better day

I hope it continues to get better . Not coughing near as much and actually got some sleep last night . I was begining to think that there was a toddler in the house again after many nights of interupted sleep due to coughing or sneezing etc .. I think the gunk is clearing up a little better in my throat as well . I would think with all these drugs in my system something would start to clear up after two days of anti biotics which shoot my bgs way out of control so I am not even going to worry about these few days of bgs right now which even with tight control cannot be done . I will risk it . I hope none of you gets this what I have deemed the super bug . Im just happy I actually got some christmas cards out this wk and will hopefully get the rest out next wk . so many things to do and not enough time in the day to do them all . when does it end ? Oh well . Be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Cough , cough and more coughing

Yes by the title you should guess that was what I did all night was cough and more coughing and it was not a pleasant night . Husband has it too now and I feel so bad that he got it . I just hope it does not develop so bad for him as it has for me or else he will be headed to the dr as well . You all really should see my dresser it looks like I could open a CVS all on my own (Joannes fave place ) and her cvs dollars LOL !!! we love you joanne . I must say I do feel better a little though . I am also on an inhaler and that is not fun . I guess the dr thought I would have trouble breathing . Now my ears are acting up . I swear if it is not one thing it is another . Okay well enough is enough . Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Update back from dr

Well I just thought I would update you all and it seems as though I have bronchcitis (sp) and am using an inhaler and many ,many drugs believe me when I say I look like a walking cvs drugstore (yes Joanne your favorite place LOL !!) so believe it or not I will soon be my old self again and be back on here complaining and crying LOL !!!I just thought I would let you all know that I am back from the dr and home and taking many , many drugs . Oh well have a good one everyone and I will be back in the morning.

I love all of you I m headed to the dr .

Okay all I am headed to the dr the clinic rather but still medical care and I am hoping they can do something for me and it could be a number of things . Strep or bronchitis is coming to mind when i tell everyone I talk to my symptoms . Please just pray for me and I love you all and I hope to be well soon . I m so sick I am ready to cry . Have any of you been there ? then you know how I feel . I m cranky and fussy and the whole nine yrds !!!I hope none of you my dear friends get this sick . Then to beat all my aunt flo came to visit and just what I needed that dear little mother natures visit aunt flo . I m done okay , me and the lord are going to have a serious talk one day about how much he thinks I can handle . Because I am convinced in his opinion I must be able to handle quite a lot . LOL !!! well I am off folks and stay well everyone . Be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Okay this thing is breaking me in two

Wow last night I made the decision that if by saturday this super bug , as I like to call it is not gone then I am going to the dr . Yesterday I coughed so hard that I have pulled a muscle in my side . and honestly to me this is way more than just a mere cold , I do believe it has developed into strep throat and if not treated by antibiotics I will keep this thing forever doing god knows what to my body . Having diabetes makes everything so much more serious than other folks illnesses and it highlights everything so much more . I just need prayers that antibiotics take care of it and Im rid of it soon . Oh well take care everyone . Be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

This cold needs to go away

Oh man this thing needs to go away . There is the chronic cough and it feels like it is going to gag me every second . I hate it . It feels like my throat is clogging every minute of the day and is it any wonder I cannot sleep ? which in turn make me angry . I hate it and I need it gone today !!! I guess it is one of those bugs that has to run its course . However in the meantime I am gagging like I have a frog stuck in my throat litteraly. I really am surprised my throat is not bleeding from so much coughing . Oh well that is life for me today , how is it going for you ?

Keep them warm and close and most of all if someone tells you they are sick stay away !!! This thing acted like a super bug . I have been reading blogs this am and leaving comments . I hope to be back to my old self in a couple of days . It just feels so good to be out of the bed and walking around .

As for me well we all still have the yucks are still running through medicine like it is water yeah !!! Just lovely huh ? well anyway that is about all I can muster today and be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Totally Sick a case of the yucks

Okay folks it is official Im totally sick with a case of the yuck . When I say the yucks i mean it and I will spare all my readers the gross ness of it all . It is okay to say that the scratchy throat has turned into full blown larigytis (spelling I know ) and I have a fever and needless to say that my bgs are all over the place which is normal for a diabetic and sickness . This whole thing is in my chest , and Im gratefull for that cause no stuffy nose . LOL !!! And I would like to ask for prayers for a dear friend who lives in Oregon it seems as though she was hit by a car crossing the street , an elderly lady did not see her and ran into her while she was trying to cross the street . she has a collapsed lung and her right side is paralised so as her husband said it is a wait and see process . she is my age and hope fully she will come out of this alright . The drs seem very hopefull that she will make a full recovery . As soon as I get better I will email her and hope to hear good news soon . So if you can find time to send a little prayer that way it would be good . her name is april .So please all let us keep April in our hearts and thoughts .

Hey Hey much better day !!!

Wow peeps listen to this !!! I found my phone in the post office box (I use this for business purposes) yesterday . This post office box belongs to the hubby cause he does all his business things and bills to this post office box . I like my personal mail coming to the house which I adore cause I get it right away and read it . I am so happy about the phone , but alas I am coming down with a scratchy throat which usually means a sickness is coming on . I m coughing and scratchy throat so it is just a matter of hours before I come dreadfully sick . Not to worry but have all the meds I need at my fingertips . I shall fare and be back to my normal self soon . Oh well be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider

Wow what can I say about this week

I think maybe I should say that this week stunk to high heaven . I was dealing with highs uncontrollable highs all week and then wham Monday when I looked on the computer tracking a pkg from the post office . I thought okay I will go and get it today . Well Low and behold my brand new cell phone that was supposed to be secure in the post office has now dissapeared and is lost . So now we start the process of filing an insurance claim and dont know how that will go . So anyway I got to thinking maybe someone in the post office stole it , possible since your things sit out on a dock unattended , yes folks unattended where anybody and his brother could lift it . So if the person or persons did steal I hope it does not work or it explodes in their hand . If there is one thing in this world I cannot stand is a theif . Because if you will steal , you will lie . So if there is someone out there who stole it then I hope it leaks and acid hits your hand and leaves you with the ugliest scars one has ever laid eyes on in the free world . Thank you for making my head explode this week post office . Okay folks thanks for letting me rant and rave . Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

My Letter to Dr. Oz

I m calling for all us d moms to over flow the emails of the offices of the Dr. Oz show !!! My dear peeps he had a show on the other day , and the good dr did not quite explain the difference btwn the types of diabetes . Then he started to go into the fact that diabetes could be reversed by diet and exercise .
I wish I could print my letter here but for some unknown complicated computer fowl up I cannot and just another thing to add to my lousy day . anyway I felt compelled by my friend Nicole to write the show . Thanks Nicole and god bless you .

No Thanks no facebook for me either

Well I want to thank Joanne C. over at the death of a pancreas blog for giving me this idea . Thanks Joanne . I want to state very clearly that I for one do not have a facebook , my space page and I also dont do twitter or tweat at all . I find them useless and if I want to talk to someone I will simply pick up my cell phone and call them and have a real life conversation with them . Yes Joanne I totally agree there are just some things I can live without and fb, my space and twitter happen to be some of them . Also dont get me wrong I love my blogger and all my sistas from different mistas out there in blogger land . I love connecting with all of you through here at this blog .I love all of your blogs as well and feel so connected with you through these blogs .

To blog To blog To blog

I know that this has been on my mind all day . Must blog must blog , must blog . LOL !!! Wow I must say sometimes when I read some of your blogs they really trip me out cause they are so open with some things and about how you all are feeling and emotional . I must say those of you who write emotional blogs we all do write emotional blogs at times and they are perfectly fine because this is how you are feeling and you are sharing this with us . Raw emotion and that is great . This has been coming up alot in the last few wks with blogs . I for one am very passionate about my writing and I also think at times I missed my calling at being an author . But on the other hand what would I write about ? I think I would be very boring as an author although it does seem like it would be a great job . I know some of my followers write their own colums in newspapers and how very lucky they are . I think that is so awesome that they know what they want to write about every day . Me I love reading and do so voraciously . I will run through a novel in a wk . Okay on another note let us keep those fallen officers families in Seattle in our prayers . I will close here for now. Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Im not impressed either

Well as of late I am not impressed with the big d and I dont mean Dallas !!! LOL !!! It rears its ugly head while making plans and making dinner , dont understand exactly why it has to do that ,but I guess we are not supposed to understand are we ? and that there is no argument that it is hard to live with every moment of every day . I am sure some of us handle it better than others or do we just cope better than some ? dont really have any answers and I dont think that drs do either . And have you ever seen a more food consious bunch than us t1s or those that love us and take care of us ? these are just some of the things that make me go hmmm.... well I will leave it there for today .

hey hey kids guess who's blood sugar is low again

This has been a week of lows and extremely and I am extremely impatient with things like this . I try to take my mind off of it .I read books like a fiend . Im scared for thursday because we will not be eating at home we have made a plan to do the restaraunts because we dont want the mess and the fuss of cooking at home and plus what of the leftovers we hate them . so I guess i will be more so keeping a closer eye on my bgs especially on thursday . Just think that christmas is right around the corner . we dont celebrate christmas and no Im not jewish we just dont celebrate for various reasons I do however attend christmas mass and that will take up a good part of the day . Im so gratefull for that and i do so enjoy my christmas mass . But at the same time I will be thinking of the familys that have a first christmas without someone they love and will have to go through other christmases without them . That has to be the hardest part of christmas is not seeing that special face that you used to see there . so often my mind floats back to those ppl who are no longer with us but are on the right hand of god and living in Heaven and waiting for us at the gate . Oh well hopefully things will straighten out and the lows will go away and normal will return soon . One can only hope . Well be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

I did early morning mass

I was up before the light this am getting ready for mass . This morning mass was very quiet and then i came home unfortunately feeling empty and sad . I think the mass service could have been a little lighter or maybe it was me I dont know . well I finally got some candy in this house and some juice . Yeah I actually went to the grocery store and took care of this . I was going to go to mass this evening but opted out because it became rather dark , rather quickly due to a storm and then it blew over . Well that is what I get for skipping mass . Oh well kids we will talk later and remember to be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Would"nt you know

Well today has been a day of lows and would'nt you know I cannot find a blasted piece of candy anywhere in this house or in my purse and I am out of juice ? How does one forget to get juice and candy ? Im like what in the world was I thinking at the grocery store ? How could I have been so stupid ? Man did I blow it at the grocery store this week friends . How does one do that knowing that these things are so important . I am so mad at myself . I wish I had a better memory and then the dogs are being a pain in my butt . They bark at every little sound they hear and it drives me nutts . I got an invite to go riding horses today and had to turn it down of course because I was scared to get out there in the middle of no where and decide to have a low . Im tired of making plans and then have to back out because diabetes rears its ugly head again and bites me over and over again . I get disgusted with it and have had enough of you diabetes and how you intrude into my life . Oh well friends just ranting and raving . Have a great day and be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

A great saturday and sunday

Well I wore my t shirt with pride on saturday and not one person stopped me and asked me what my shirt meant . Kinda sad really cause ppl are so in tuned to their own lives and really busy . Oh well that is just me I guess . I have not been able to get a picture because it seems like my camera never wants to work when I want it to work LOL !!! also on sunday went to parrish and father Mike asked me how the parrish could help Holli Whites family and I made an announcement and let them know to contact either me or father mike and he will give you the addy to send it to . Your check that is or if any of you want to send flowers or cards . I hope they make it to where they are supposed to go . I was so glad my church family never lets me down they always care . Children are our future and they need so much help now a days and growing up without a mom is not easy . I hope we get to hear more about Hollis girls and how they are doing . I just know that this thanksgiving and christmas will not be easy without their mom and I will pray extra long for them that they can make it through what will be the hardest christmas of their little lives . Lets us all say a special prayer for them this season . Well be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Hello everyone today is world diabetes day . I was a t1 before there was a world diabetes day. I have a 25 yr old son who is t1 . In those days meters were the size of tvs and you sure could not manage diabetes day to day on your own . The drs did not like that back then . We have so many things to be thankfull for this world diabetes day .

Okay now I am really confuzzled

Well first off I would like to know how in the blue blazes one meter can read a 260 and then another meter read 114. Wth ? i know what I am doing i have been doing the d thing for many moons LOL !!! No cracks over age here please and believe me when I say I have heard them all . all I know is I dont have the $ to keep testing twice and I am another one who uses the control solution everytime I open a new vial of strips . I know these strips aint cheap. talk about frustrations . I am doing everything right and this mess is still going strong Ugh !! sooner or later I am sure i will be seing an endo and the endo will fuss me out about other things ,than what I came for . If that is the case they can be sure I will not be back and will find another endo to handle my problems . The only problem is that I have to pay out of pocket for any medical stuff I do because I cannot afford health insurance . Which I might add is a total other problem and I will blog at some other point about that . Enough of my soapbox kids . Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

This has been a wild day

well today has been a wild day !!! I think we shall have pizza for dinner , love pizza but sometimes it does not love me lol !!! well anyways I was parking the car when I pulled into the post office today . Then all of a sudden an older man in a truck kept trying to back his truck into the space beside me , however I am so glad I was in the car still because he almost took my passenger side out . He was not even looking . when I got out of my car I banged his truck to get his attention and he screamed out "I cant hear you I am half deaf " . I was like why are you driving then ? I told him he had almost taken out my passenger side . then he says to me well my insurance would have taken care of it , I have plenty of money . Of all the nerve some ppl just really dont get it do they ? I mean he must not have any family because I know if my dad had trouble hearing he certainly would not be driving anywhere putting someone in danger . I wish some ppl would think before they get behind the wheel . I have a tendancy to test my bg before i get behind the wheel just to make sure and give me that piece of mind . well guys I have had quite a day .

D Blog day

Well November 14th is world diabetes day and I find it amazing that half of the major metropolitan areas are not doing anything special for world diabetes day . I cannot believe that , it just goes to show you that in the grand sceme of things that diabetes is put on the back burner so to speak . It shows you that diabetes is a very little thought about disease in the big order of things . So if someone can understand why diabetes is such a little thought about disease . I would like to know why . We work so hard to bring it to the fore front and yet major citys in the country do nothing to bring it to the fore front . I think alot of people perpetuate myths about diabetes such as the tv show "modern family " on Abc . Hallie at "welcome to my world " informed me of this and you all know i just had to give them my opinion about perpetuating a myth right ? I think this is why most of us have such a harder row to hoe than most , so to speak . Okay well I did my part for today and yes my numbers unfortunately are still all over the place kids . Be carefull out there among them english and negative ghost rider . Take care and blessings .

The last two days

Wow the last two days have really been hard to get through . I have had bgs all over the map and just dont seem to be able to get it in hand . Hope fully I will soon and of course I ate some peanut butter without thinking and this went hand in hand and shot my bgs all to hell and back and I hate that . One minute I am a 164 and the next min I am 110 and this is from two different meters so who knows which one is right ? I sure as hell dont and at this point really dont care . I have just really had it with diabetes and wish it would go away . I totally know how the rest of you feel when you see these crazy numbers too . Guess we all have days of crazy numbers and i can truly say that it is probably totally my fault for eating peanut butter when i know that my bgs just cannot handle peanut butter . I mean I dont eat red meat anymore because it seems like I cannot digest it at all . which at times in the past has irritated many a dr , more than I care to count. Oh well I cannot make everyone happy at the same time right ? I mean it is not as if I am not trying cause I really am . I guess I am just frustrated with trying to always remember things . Oh well take care out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

I have a heavy heart today

My friend Wendy has a heavy heart today and I know she is sad and I really want to find words to comfort her and i cannot find the words and it bothers me . I wish I could go over to her house and give her a hug and cry with her if it would make her feel better . I guess all of this piled on top of me . I got a phone call last night from a friend who lives in ky still and she said that her son had been killed in afganistan and now I am totally at a loss to say anything to her as well except that I was very sorry for her loss . My words have left me and I have never ever felt like this before that words have left me . I will end here today . I m just not going to be any good today . God loves all of us remember that folks .

Im so proud of all of us and how we acted

Let me tell you I am proud of all of us and the way we responded to that stupid ignorant letter posted to an editor at the idaho state journal . We d moms are an awesome force to be reckoned with and nobody wants to mess with us . When we all join forces there is nothing that we cannot accomplish !! I think we did the d community a great service today and I must say kuddos to Ms. shamae for posting this and letting the rest of us take action . I must say we made a statement to that paper you can bet your bottom dollar on that . That paper now realises that they probably should have not published that letter at all and are rueing today . Oh well my, a little late now fellas . Next time put brain in gear before mouth and fingers in motion . I bet we made them realize that they will think twice before posting an arogant letter from some nitwit who obviously did not think about what they were writing before they wrote it . I am so proud of us that my buttons are popping . We are an awesome group yes we are and I am so proud to call all of you ladies my friend. take care and be carefull among them english and negative ghost writer .

Im on fire now two

Oct. 3, myself and my girlfriend were eating lunch at Burger King. A family came in and sat across the aisle from us. While the father was ordering food, we were shocked and appalled to see a boy inject himself with whatever medication, in front of God and everybody all while sitting at the table. We found this extremely offensive. That sort of business should be done in private. How about a little respect for those around you. Other than the obvious fact that it's not sanitary for those who use the table next, you have no idea how something like that can affect people. People go through a lot in their life and things like that may bring up certain feelings and memories best forgotten. I would like to thank those that day for totally ruining my meal.

This is what I was talking about when I responded to this the post before .

Im on fire now

Hey kids the following is the letter in response to a newspaper article let me know what you think . I sent this as soon as I got the info from ms shamae thank you very much my dear . Just let me know what you think .
I must respond to a letter to the editor from a woman who made a comment about a child who was injecting his self right there in front of God and everybody (her words not mine ) I am appauled I am a type 1 diabetic and have been so since I was 16 yrs old and am now 47 . This woman is ignorant !!! she could have used this expierience to teach her son about diabetes and how insulin keep us alive , but no instead she re enforced the ignorance and intolerance that I have faced all my life since being diagnosed . If everyone thought like her diabetes would still be in the dark ages . No I will not inject my insulin in the bathroom to make someone else comfortable and frankly if I was asked to do that , I would get up and leave the restaraunt . I find this attitude of this woman appauling and I hope she is a rare case in your community .

well I hope I did us all proud who are fighting this horrible disease everyday .

Handle with care review

Well I finally finished this book . I read this book and the ending was really sad and did not care for the ending at all . I mean all and all it was a good read but a totally unexpected ending . You all must read this book if you read picoult . Okay enough about the book . I have been on the roller coaster for the last few wks going from high in the morning to low at night . I dont understand what is going on as I know this is so confusing and I have been at this for awhile folks and it just does not get any easier with time and it can take just one tsp of something to throw your bgs off . I just am so frustrated with all of this and it is a struggle everyday for us to face the day sometimes and a battle . Okay I m done venting and ranting and raving I think .

My dear friend Sam

I want to say a very big thank you to my friend Sam over at

future.nostalgic . You guys should go over and say hello and follow
his blog . He sent these amongst a great deal of sadness and sorrow over the passing of his mother in law . She was quite the charecter
to hear Sam tell it . She also participated in WW2 and I hope I am getting all of this right . If not Sam will be sure to tell me that I messed up . I know some of you know Sam and follow him . But something tells me he just needs to hear a great big hello today . God bless Sam and I both he is doing better . Thanks Sam and this notebook is way too cute to write in LOL !!! take care everyone .

What an honor !!!

I am feeling very honored today . I and my bird are featured
along with a few other folks . I talk about how I went to a breeder
when I made a decision that would change my life in a way I did not see coming . I saw a sad little quaker baby in a cage with a broken wing . The breeder told me she was going to euthanize all of them including arnolds siblings .I broke down right there and called my cousin and asked her to come meet me it turned out to be a rescue mission . we gave the breeder twenty five dollars for all the babies including arnold she said they were too deformed to sell . right then we scooped all those babies up . I always tell ppl that was the best 25.00 I ever spent in my life .
For those of you who dont know I do rescue work and also went to new orleans after katrina hit to see what we could do for those poor dogs and cats and pets that got left behind . I crawled through muddy underpennings under houses and I was glad to do it cause I want to be sure that I leave something behind when I leave this earth . The babies that you cant save are the ones that stick out the most in your mind or the ones that die on you on the way to the rescue station .
I will never forget them . I will also never forget driving from new orleans to mobile alabama without a shower and the hotel owner who let me pile ten dogs in the hotel room with me and she brought food , dog food and extra towels to wash the dogs with as well . I dont think I have ever been that dirty in my life before . Oh well Im very honored to have been a part of this book and a part of helping after Katrina . Be carefull out there among them english and stay well everyone .

So distrubing

Hey there everybody . Well I must say that this book was so distrubing that I cannot recomend it at all . It deals with sex addiction , ponography and certain
other elements that I dont want to read about . I hear enough about
that on the evening news . It was so distrubing I cannot finish this book . I have never had a book that was so distrubing I could not finish it but this is certainly one of those . I wish I had known this when I sent away for it . It was a paperback swap so I guess I did not have a really good grasp of what this book entailed . So if you are squeemish about any thing as described above then please dont read this book . highly distrubing to me least ways . I just thought I would warn ppl in case you were thinking about reading it and I wish someone had warned me .
Okay kids just remember to wash them hands and take care the flu is rampant . As always be carefull out there among them english . Negative Ghost writer :) !

Reading Matierial

thanks to my book swapping site I am going to have plenty of reading matierial for at least three wks , I have never read any of kathleen kittle was authored the first book you see pictured here as The Kindness of Strangers . When I get through reading it I will do a review on it as I intend to do with all my books . I heard someone say just the other day that Jodi picoult was depressing I find that to be so not true . She writes from the heart and if someone finds that depressing then so be it . I however would prefer an author to write from the heart rather than never expierience it for themselves . however some of the books I have read I would have rather not expierienced it . If any of you have any picoult sitting around that you dont want to read or would rather not read than by all means pass my way and I will give you a booklist of what I have and will gladly trade . I also enjoy alexander mccall , and several different authors . I like to mix it up a little bit . The only thing I wont read is books about medical examiners and the dark gothic horror series . None of that for me . We have enough bad in the world I dont want to read about it in books .I dont like war books either I figure war is present enough as well . Oh well kids that is all for today be carefull and remember to wash your hands and be carefull out there among them english and for a certain reader : Negative Ghost Rider :) !!!

Another migraine

Listen kids I would be blogging more but have had a migraine that does not seem to want to go away . Three days and counting now and I hope tommorow is a better day . I have taken all the medication I possibly can without overdosing . I just pray that tommorow is a better day and I feel much better . Of course I think I would have to be hit by a car to feel better LOL !!! I am also kind of bummed because we are not moving after all due to finances and I really did want to move into a nice place and live in a nice neighborhood . One far better than the one I am living in now . This neighborhood has become a dirty and disgusting mess with some less than desirable folks that reside in this neighborhood . I think that there are good and bad points about the move but it is dissapointing , but I will get over it . I hope that I also get over this maddening migraine . Back to bed I go .

New postcards from a great pen pal

This postcard was sent to me by a pen pal and I love it . She knows I like oriental things and items and this is just one of the lovelys she sent . There is some oriental writing on the corner but since I dont know how to read japaneese writing I am out of look it is probably just a makers mark of some sort .

She sent the other one , the one with the flowers I believe to be a cherry blossom but cant be sure . It is just beautifull though . I really cherish the both of them and hope to keep them for a long time . I consider these cards a gift , a cherished gift .

Saturday, October 3, 2009


Hi everyone . This card was sent to me by a pen pal who lives in New York and those of you who live in New York will know this photo as the Brooklyn Bridge .
I love photographing bridges but not walking over them or driving over them .
I think it is a deep seeded fear of mine . I guess I have watched too many movies of cars going off of bridges and ppl drowning in their cars . I love this card though and wish I could lay claim to this photo but alas it is not mine . But it is still an awesome photo and one I very much enjoyed receiving . I love my pen pals and my internet friends so much and my mail box is very happy . well enough for now , be carefull out there among them english .

Today is much better

Well today has been much better and I feel much better and I want to say hello to all my new followers and welcome aboard to what might be a wild ride cause you never know what you are going to get , oh wait is that not part of a line from a movie called forrest gump ? jeeze here I go again with the one liners from movies . Hey give me some credit at least I did not use that tired one from Jerry Mcguire "you complete me " oh please who really says stuff like that ? Not me of course cause I am making light of it . I guess you can tell I am feeling so much better than yesterday . It always amazes me with this blog that I see the little ones that take so much self control that this disease requires , it just floors me . I wonder how I would have done it at their age ? I cant say that I would know how . I think I have learned to adjust not sucumb but adjust as everyone of us t1s has done . Oh well enough for today and be carefull all out there among them english . Yeah I know another movie line .

All over the charts again

Hey do we ever get a break from this crappy disease ? I mean today I have been all over the charts regardless of what I have eaten and believe me I look and log it all . I am just so tired of doing this day after day and am so praying everyday for a cure ,
I want to let ppl know right now that insulin is not a cure it is a treatment . did everyone hear that ? it is not a cure it is a treatment . I am so done with this horrible disease , it is a battle everyday . when we as type 1s put our feet on the floor every morning it is like we ask ourselves okay what battle are we going to face today ? will we be chasing highs or lows or what ? well everyday is a food battle too . dont eat this , dont eat that . ah and the reveered juice box that is our saving grace , is it not ? I love the days when I am actually in control today does not happen to be one of those days . One minute I am high and the next I am low .I still dont have this figured out after 32 yrs . I feel so worn out some days and just feel like crawling back into bed and sleeping these days away but I dont and I trod on through and try to make it and that is what we are all doing untill we get a CURE !!! Not insulin !!! A CURE !!!!
Okay I am done venting now and be carefull out there among them english .

Well just be carefull out there among them english . stay well all .

Another book review

Okay here is another book I bought this one from a gift card I received through a survey . I bought it from amazon as a used book although it did not look at all used . This is an amazing book from a new writer named Lesley Kagen and let me tell you I could not put this book down once I started it . If i did not have to sleep I could have finished this in a night . It took me two days to finish it off and i did not want it to end . It also had a surprise ending and I was floored after I finished it . It is an excellent read and I highly reccomend it . Oh well be carefull out there and pick up a good book .

Doggie update

Well this is an update to the earlier post , a couple of days ago .
This doggie is feeling much better and the anti biotic is working well and the sore is clearing up . He is still in the e collar simply because if I take it off the licking starts up again and the infection starts all over again . I am leaning towards the fact that he will be staying in the e collar for about two wks if not more . This doggie is my problem child . I used to think my kids , my sons ,one of which is a type 1 diabetic was going to be the cause of me going totally grey . Not true I think this dog will be the one to do it . This dog I am referring to is a chihuahua and you cant tell because his ears cannot stand up in the collar . His sister is the meek and mild one . She is so mellow and it is like night and day with these two .
Thanks to all of you who asked about him and wanted to let you all know that he is fairing much better these days and will take a pic when the collar is off and he is back to normal , whatever he perceives normal to be . Oh well be carefull out there among them english .

The vet visit

Well the dog made it to the vet and he is now on anti biotics and he is in an e collar . So it is what it is and the poor dog makes you feel so bad for him but things should be better in a few days . Doggie dilemas are nothing out of the ordinary around here . Oh I also got my flu shot and it did cost quite a lot . thanks for reading and please let us all be carefull out there among them english .

Yoga class

Well kiddos I went to the first yoga class last night and let me tell you that gal will put you through your paces . I also suffered a low and had to have a juice box and a snack at break .
One of the ladies in the class was a little snotty body and said something like "you are not to have food in the class " they have a sign out there you know . Well one of the other ladies was very kind and simply stated to her and told her that some people have medical conditions and there are always exceptions to the rules ! I just dont understand some ppls way of thinking about how they can always open their mouth when it is not really needed This snotty body has two kids ages 7 and 9 and I can only imagine the parent -teacher confrences she must have . Then after class I see how her kids turned out . The 7 yr old told her father "mom says it is time to go Howard " . I said to him oh your the kids step dad ? Oh no I m their dad . If I had dared called my father by his first name ever I would have been toting such a cherry red rear it would not have been funny . she allows the children the place her husband should have in the family dynamic . I see now how she acts and actually I felt better after that . Okay be carefull out there among them english and thanks to lady lake I will be getting a flu shot . LOL !!!

Flu shots

Lately flu shots have come into light and much disscussions . We have not only our regular flu shots but yet you have the H1N1 shot better known as swine flu . I have seen quite a few questions about weather we know enough about the swine flu vaccine to be giving it to our kids and how many deaths are going to result from getting both the regular flu vaccine and the swine flu vaccine and will one shot cancel the benefits of the other . I 'm sorry but I have not had a flu shot in ten yrs and have not had the flu since (knock wood ) . I have rarely been sick except for the d . That in itself is enough in my opinion to drive anyone over the cliff LOL !!! I am entered into a yoga class and the yoga teacher was spraying her classroom with lysol the other day and she absoloutly went to town with it . Now my cousin was stating that her dr said that most likely the media is blowing this totally out of propotion in his opinion . Oh well I will close here for now . Remember to be carefull out there among them english .

Well these are two of my pets . The male chihuahua nicknamed
Kooey . he is three yrs old and the one sitting on him is my quaker parrot . These two are some of the most friendly animals I have ever known . They dont like strangers though and arnold and this dog are the best of friends . They also play on the floor like two dogs would play . I think the quaker does not know he is a bird because the dog treats him like another dog . or the dog thinks he is a bird who knows with these two , I think us humans can learn something from the animals ,in reference how to get along . Well that is it for today and take care out there among them english .

Hey guys I got this awesome insulin and pen carrier from the folks at novo nordisk and I think that it was awesome that they would send this to me just for asking about it . I think it will come in very handy as well .
Also do any of my loyal readers have a ladies gym bag you are not using ? I need one for a yoga class and dont really want to spend big bucks on a new one cause with limited funds that is just out of the ? the yoga class is free at the y and took advantage of it since I need the exercise . I have scoured the goodwills and flea markets and apparently these are hard to get so if anyone can help just please email me and you can find my email on my profile page thanks again . Be carefull out there among them english .

The dog has done it again

Well the male chihuahua has irritated his dew claw and it is swollen and it has been wrapped with what my vet reccomended is called vet wrap and you can pick it up at petsmart for like three bucks and it comes in handy for the birds which you readers know I have too so . It is usually the male chihuahua who hurts himself on a regular basis and the bird who plucks a blood feather and gets wrapped too . I swear between the male dog and the bird they keep my hopping like I had small children at home again . There is never a dull moment in my house . So be carefull out there among them english .

Things in the mail today

I did surveys over at and they sent me these for completing surveys and your points add up and you get these things in the mail . I thought it was a hoot that I actually got them . It is a glucose fluid in the green bottle and chewable orange tablets in the tube . Those folks are awesome and cant hurt to get free things that you will use you know . It has been raining here all day , I mean I dont mind the rain but hate when it rains all day long here . well be carefull out there among them english .

I know that my aunt and uncle will never forget this day for the rest of their lives . James Robert Dougan age 27 along with the rest of those sweet boys who lost their lives that day and so many as well in those two towers . Let us never forget those brave souls who gave their lives in service for others .

Well I got an email back from aetna this am !!!

The lady that sent the email said she could not believe that they turned me down on the basis of just being an insulin dependant diabetic . She claims she is going to look into my file further and find out what is going on cause normally they dont turn down just on that basis alone . Then she asked me if my husbands last name was the same as mine ? Uh duh yeah he is my husband !!! I just dont think this will go anywhere and I must say when I saw the ? I had to laugh because these are the ppl that are in charge of our life insurance companys and most likely the future of our country and that should be very scary to some of us . I think the email just served the purpose to make me laugh which it did . LOL !!!!Well we shall see what comes of this and I will keep you , all my readers informed of what happens but it was just a hoot to wake me up this morning . smile and take care all and be carefull out there among them english .

I say all of us should boycott Aetna Insurance Company !!

I sincerely hate all insurance companys and having to deal with them . Of course when the hubby started a new job we looked into health insurance and we decided to pass up on that because of the cost , in other words do we keep a roof over our heads or do we pay for health insurance ? We opted to be two of the millions of americans who are walking around without health insurance . But a month ago we applied to the life insurance company that hubbys employer carries and it is Aetna . I am cringing as I say the name . I received today in the mail a letter stating that they were declining to carry a life insurance policy on me simply based upon the fact that I am an insulin dependant diabetic . To me that is the highest form of discrimination . I want to know why insurance companies are allowed to cherry pick . In other words Aetna only insures healthy ppl . No wonder our country is in such a mess . I am so pissed right now I just cannot even put this into words !!! Well thanks for reading and letting me rant . Be carefull out there among them english .

Wow another blog brought back a memory for me

After reading someone else's blog I remembered what had happened a few yrs ago at a bakery in Jacksonville florida . I was attending a friends wedding when this happened . we all had come into town for a few days and were chatting at a bakery and enjoying coffee and cupcakes . well when I got mine I scraped all the icing off and I was getting stares from the lady who baked the cupcakes . I smiled and she gave me the nastiest look and I said "I'm sorry did I do something to offend you ? " her response was hell yes you scraped the icing off of my damn cupcake, what the hell is wrong with you ? I told her I was sorry but I am not able to eat the icing because of my blood sugar . She told me that I had no business in her bakery then and me and my friends should go immediately . So we did . I have a friend who lives in Jax and she says the bakery went out of business and I thought to myself gee I wonder why LOL !! Maybe because you had such a hatefull b*tch running the place . Oh well just my rant for the day . I might post again today if I get something delicious in the mail . Be carefull out there among them english folks .

a new beanie baby added to the collection of mascots

His name is fable and he is a unicorn and he is the newest addition to my mascots I use on here from time to time . I think he is a cutie . This is labor day here in the united states so I have been alerted that many of our overseas friends have to still work today and it is a normal day for them . So let us all remember while we are enjoying our time for bbqs and family and friends that there are other people in the world that are not so fortunate and lucky as we are to be enjoying a holiday today . I will close here for now and
remember be carefull out there among them english .

I wonder

I wonder sometimes if this photo does represent how we might feel if this photo was true to life and
represented how many dots we have on our finger tips from testing our blood sugars . Actually this is a photo of a henna tattoo
received from a pen pal but it kind of to me reps blood testing somehow . The other photo is a black and white image and if you use your imagination you can probably see all kinds of things in it . Let me know what you see . Have a great day and be carefull out there among them english .

Do you ever wonder ?

some more pics of my little box

I have a whole stash of stickers and I used some of the ones that I could not stick on envies without them being torn by the post office . Now this box stashes my diabetic supplies . You know all those little vial of strips and things that you really dont know where they were stashed or where to put them . I saw this little box at target and decided yeah I will get that .

some of these are kawaii and notice the no sugar sticker in yellow . I thought what better sticker to put on this little box . It also has a violin sticker on it cause some of you know that I am a classically trained violinist which had opened up many , many opportunities for me in my younger years and it was an awesome ride and that will always be with me . Oh well I am closing here and be carefull out there among them english .

look at my new little box

This is my new little box to put some of my supplies out on my desk.I would rather they be in a box
than just sitting out on my desk .

more pics

the first pic reminds me of an alice and wonderland theme . I applogize for the lighting is not very good and the pic shows like a cartoon image of a king and queen at a big table . It just struck me as great because I have an alice and wonderland postcard and she did not know this . I also was in awe of the koala bear and the turtle . all of these images remind me of old national geographic magazines or old encyclopedias of our mother's era . I hope you enjoy like I do and did .

I got awesome mail yesterday


I received some awesome mail yesterday from my pen pal friend Ruckus out in Oregon. The girl with the long neck slays me . the other picture is a buffalo soldier with a camel . if you dont know what a buffalo soldier was or is please do a google , it is part of our history as americans and I think that the buffalo soldier was very important . I will be adding more pics to accompany this blog so please explore .

wow is all I can say

Well yesterday we had a terrible time finding our turtles . We retrieved one and the other one was dumped in a ditch somewhere . These two downs syndrome kids (who should have been being watched by their parents instead of an older brother ) stole them out of our pool out front of my cousins house . When approaching the house the older brother told us that their mom or dad was not around and he was having to watch them and he continuely called them stupid . so anyway they returned the little male turtle but then told us they dumped our female turtle into a ditch and she we figure is long gone now sadly to us . Our friend across town has several turtles and she is going to give us one to go along with the male turtle . It just amazes me that not one parent came down here to apologize . I as a parent would be so embarassed if my child did anything like this and I think any parent with a grain of salt should be too . So I know now that when my grandma said that the apple does not fall too far from the tree . I think maybe the parents have stolen and the kids saw it and think it is alright to do so . anyways on a lighter note here guys and gals Denise is having an awesome giveaway again and here is the link to her blog and check it out .Knitting in the Wild - Life on Clear Creek . Let us all be carefull out there among them english .

Wow I just realized that some ppl shop for stationery like some ppl shop for clothes !!

Oh my gosh I just realized that some people shop for stationery like some ppl shop for clothes . I mean honestly dont we take so much time with our clothes just like we do with stationery . I mean you hold up the paper to the light and we think about how it is going to look , will they like the color , the texture ,the ink ? I mean come on seriously I do think we letter writers subconsciously think about thing like that more than people who are non letter writers . Now pen and ink is a whole other matter and that is best left for another day , so maybe soon I will blog about some certain ink , pen or paper I received as a gift who knows from one day to the next what I will choose to blog about . So hang on for the ride I hope it is not too bumpy for you . Oh well take care and be carefull out there among them english .

I have such a bone to pick !!!

Okay I have such a bone to pick with the post office !!! they actually had the nerve to send an empty envie which their lousy machine tore which had 84 cents on it in order for it to be hand stamped !! what about that does the usps does not understand about the fact that the person put 84 cents on it , for it to be hand stamped !!! I think maybe they just get too busy to care sometimes . I mean if they tore the envie they should have to pay for what was in it . Of course that is my belief but apparently they would go broke cause they tear quite a few things they have torn so many postcards of mine that i have started asking ppl to please send postcards in envies to help protect them a little . I mean I know the post has a hard time already but honestly do you think that it is fair that they tear up our mail as well . I think maybe their machines need an overhaul at least and make sure what they are putting in those machines . oh well just my rant and rave for today !!!
