Results of My Meterless day

It is 4:55 PM.

I am home.

I have Tested.

130

Wow. I am shocked.

Thanks for all of you ideas. I did not have ANY money so I had to just hold out but I am very pleased.

Now to take all those extra meters and plant them everywhere so this won't happen again!

Morning

That’s right friend it is not “good.”

I left my BG Ma Sheen at home this morning.

I know right where I left it to. On top of my dresser next to an extra One Touch Ultra.

I hate that feeling when you look into your “very masculine” tote bag and notice that something is missing. I have an extra machine in my car BUT no more strips so that is a dead end.

When I checked this morning upon awakening I was at 87. So it should be interesting to see how well I do.

Any advice from the OC will be read, considered, and seriously appreciated. I am on the verge of freaking out and driving home to get my machine. The problem there is it is a 45 minute drive each way.

I would love some ideas on this!

P.S. I will test as soon as I get home and post the results.

You Tube Tuesday #6

This is a very short clip but I ended up watching about 20 times because it cracked me up. I hope I won't have to try and pull this one off any more.

Good Times!

Oh boy, we had a great time camping. The weather was perfect during the day. Sunny, Clear, upper 70's, very light breeze. Perfect. It was pretty cold at night at least for us Californians. The kids did well though. We just bundled up and slid as far as possible into our sleeping bags.

During the day we ate, took walks, snacked, played cards, grubbed, and ate some more. How my BG stayed in decent range I can only attribute to the walking and running around.

I did have fun playing Jumprope with my kids. We schooled them on H.E.L.P. (High wires, Eyes closed, Leap frog, Peppers), Grade School (when you run through the jumprope and shout "Kindergarten" then run through again, jump once and shout "First Grade" and so on), and any other playground games we could think of. Do any of you remember those games?

If you have kids, I highly suggest letting go of any hang ups and totally playing with them like you used to when you were a kid. Sure I cannot "shoot the duck" when I rollerskate and I am not too fast at freeze tag but your kids will have fun and trust me, you will too.

If you don't have kids then make sure you try this out with neices & nephews or other kids that are in your life.

You may have sore muscles, but your spirit will soar!

**EDIT** I added some pictures for you to enjoy! (thanks for the reminder Bernard)


This is my Brother in law and me.


This is George and Gillian at the top of a trail.


This is our lovely campsite.


Gillian took this picture of George. I really like it. I think Gillian has a good eye for Pictures. She actually took the one of Me and Frank (Bro-in-law)

Camping and Thanks

First I want to say "thanks" to all of you who commented on my last post. I am pursuing a second opinion and have calmed down considerably. I love all of the OC so much. You all make this stupid disease a bit easier to deal with. I am so thankful to have this community in my life.

Second, I am going camping this weekend. I am not into football or commercials so Superbowl is not a big deal for me. I cannot even look forward to a "Costume Malfunction" since Prince has the honors of entertaining the masses during the half time show.

My sisters and their significant others and the Simmons Clan are all going camping this weekend. It was my sisters idea and I am a little concerned that we are going to freeze but my kids are troopers and so is my wife. I am the only wimp on the trip so I will stay layered and keep my mouth shut. I don't want to ruin it for the kids.

I will take lots of pictures and post up on Sunday night. Maybe I will magically lose some weight out in the wilderness.

Who am I kidding?

Have a great weekend!
