Okay back on my soapbox

Lauras blog really got to me and so did Joannes . I am so tired of all of us having to walk or do bake sales or have garage sales or raise money the old fashioned way when our government seems to find the money to build a new bomb or fund a stupid project somewhere in the world , but yet cannot seem to justify funding research for cures ? why is that ? Just one day I would love to see our government hold a bake sale to buy a bomb , to have a garage sale to fund congress , set up a lemonade stand to fund a stupid project somewhere in the world . It is simple folks our government is more interested in building bombs than finding cures for illnesses. I for one am sick of living with a disease that im sure somewhere in the world there is a cure . I m tired of seeing little 2 and 3 yr olds walking around wearing pumps and giving themselves shots to keep their selves alive . Im so sick of it and yes Laura and Joanne you are so right . We have to use websites to raise money and it is such bs . Okay that is my gripe for today .As usual be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

a really busy day

I have had such a busy day and we are worn out and dont really have much to blog about other than I am so glad to be home and resting and finishing up what was a really busy day . I also am kind of disheartened because I found out one of my pen pals is traveling the country soon she leaves sunday and I probably wont hear from her again until sept when she returns home after her cross country trip .It is sad to hear that friends are going on an extended trip and then you wont hear from them for awhile . Oh well I guess I will have to deal with it anyways . I hope you all are well and I shall say adieu for now and will be back soon and blog and vent , pi** , bi*ch and moan some more . As always be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider.

Talk about mail art

Well I had been having a bad day and then I found this wonderful example of mail art in my mail box and I mean man oh man . I love this and I am saving it . Actually I save every letter I get from my pen pals . Yeah I have two boxes full of saved letters . I know my hubby would probably say this is clutter but hey I prefer the term mail art much better . So what say all of you ?

Im bouncing off the walls

I dont know what the heck is going on with me cause my bgs are bouncing off the walls and Im not sleeping good at all and Im wore out all the time . I think the heat might have something to do with it . And then there is the counting carbs and checking and re checking and stocking and re stocking of supplies and finding out whoa dont have something . Then you have to deal with some ass hole pharmacy clerk who shakes their head a hundred times when you tell them you dont have insurance . Yeah I know and I dont need your attitude guy or girl . Talk to our government who does not want any of us sick people around . Talk to the fda who wants our medications to be so costly that they want to send us into back alleys to buy it . I m really tired of having to pay so much for an illness I did not contribute to or cause in any way . well be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Okay after reading some blogs I need to blow my top

Okay after reading certain blogs on here I feel the need to blow my top on some things .
First off we as parents should not be having to fight insurance companys to get our kids covered . It is not as if they asked to have a certain illness which requires supplies and special meds etc ... I did not ask to be dxed at 16 with type 1 diabetes . I am now 49 which means I have lived half my life with diabetes . My parents had insurance and good insurance because my dad worked for pepsi cola whom at the time was an a 1 company to work for and they supplied great insurance mom and dad and I never had to worry about them not paying for anything . So could someone tell me where the hell the insurance companys get off not paying for something that a child needs ? me I could understand cause im an adult and they would prefer im sure for me just to go off and die somewhere and stop being a burden . The state of this countrys health care is a disaster to say the least . I have been denied insurance for the last five yrs since my insurance was dropped by bcbs . I have since had to pay for everything out of my pocket and folks that aint no easy task . I can only imagine what some people who have children are doing when they dont qualify for medical assistance programs which are a joke as well . When is our government going to realize that they need to revamp the insurance companys and start letting them know that dropping indiviuals with certain illnesses will no longer be tolerated ? I think there should be some kind of regulating of the health insurance companys . Okay thanks and I will get off my soap box now .

Rock formations and a blown day trip

yesterday while my husband had the day off we went riding around and I spotted this awesome rock formation on the side of the road . Of course I think I spoiled the trip yesterday by not wanting to take a 4 hr trip in a car . I cannot stand to be in a car that long and never could . I dont like driving for say two hrs and still not be where we are going. . My husband seems to like that sort of thing I dont . Anyways onto nicer things . I like rock formations like this and I also like mountains . I think mountains are mighty and strong just like God. Well anyways I hope you all have an awesome weekend and take care every one .

a Heat wave

Wow this heat is wrecking havoc with the bgs alot . I woke up at 228 and of course I have been fighting highs all am long . It seems like lately if Im not fighting a high Im fighting a low . I guess it is just one of those roller coaster things again and frankly I hate it and Im done and over it and little big d can go away forever . Yeah we wish right ? Im tired and done and over it . Oh wait I said that already LOL !!! If you dont laugh about it , you cry about it and I dont feel like crying at all so I would rather laugh as Im sure so would the rest of my blogger friends and readers . Last time I blogged I was in a crappy mood and it came out in my blog . Oh well guess some days are better than others .So now all day I will probably be fighting highs and keeping my head above water with that . Man Im so glad I dont have kids living at home that would have to deal with me right now . LOL !!! I dont like having to deal with people when I am fighting highs or lows . Oh well be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .

Okay folks no fire works but other pics

Well wow could my day suck any worse ? I woke up and started to finish off some letter and low and behold the fountain pen broke and ink every where and then we found out there were fireworks on July 3rd here not the 4th so we missed them last night . So after cleaning up the ink and the mess that was the top of my desk I decide that perhaps we should remove ourselves from this house . LOL !! So we went to the ohio caverns where it was a really nice 54 degrees down there and it was cold and damp and dark . At first I kind of got sick to my stomach I really did and then when that subsided , the tour guide says , Oh and for all of those who might wonder about our safety she told us that we were perfectly safe and that when the top of the cavern expierienced an earthquake they did not even feel it when they were in the caverns . She mentioned this safety part sort of toward the end of the tour and I was like dont you think she should have said something toward the begining of the tour about that . LOL !! But hey that is my story a day late and a dollar short . Well any ways I got some awesome pics of the caverns and picked up some awesome post cards too . I just wish ;my pen had not broke !! Im a letter writter darn it did this pen not know that ? Now i have to write with gel pens until I can afford to replace a fountain pen . Oh well that is a whole other post . take care everyone and be careful out there among them english and negative ghost rider .
