Not sure if I have “Whine Flu,” or just some sort of “Whine Funk.”
I've had elevated blood sugars since Sunday (which was the day I had to force myself to swim because I felt like I was walking through JELLO, due to my high numbers); a scratchy sore throat, a general feeling of melancholy, and like most of us on the East Coast, I haven’t seen the sun in 8 freaking days.
Or maybe it’s the fact that my birthday is next week and I’m just not thrilled about its arrival.
Now to be fair, my high blood sugars may be a combo of the sore throat and skunky insulin.
I just tossed my bottle and reservoir thinking that perhaps that bottle had somehow lost its insulin spunkiness, which we all know is crucial for good numbers.
I’m now tackling that large pile of paperwork that has been screaming my name. I’m also writing a much needed post.
There’s a prediction of partial sunshine in the forecast for Saturday, but my inner voice says: Kel, don’t hold your breath on any of the above.
Enough already!!! Let’s look at the bright side folks.
My numbers are going down fast thanks to a new bottle of insulin juice.
I’m doing paperwork!
I’m writing a post!
There’s partial sunshine in the forecast for Saturday!
My mother’s health is much better.
Oprah scored us some free grilled chicken!!!
My blood Sugars are going down, along with my weight. I’ve lost 22 pounds in the past 3 years. 11 of those pounds since October.
I have some potential speaking engagements, which always rock my world and provide me with an overall feeling of happiness. Simply put, by giving, I get back more than I ever thought possible.
While I may be dreading my birthday, I am indeed living my life. I love and am loved.
I learn something new everyday, and find inspiration in many things, big and small.
And I still have hope, which at one point in my life I thought I had lost forever.
Most recently my pot of Orange Mint filled me with hope. Up until 3 weeks ago looked like dead twigs and dirt. Now, it’s comeback to life with lush green sprigs that will eventually find it’s way and infuse it's minty goodness into my water bottle. Soon it will be used in cooking new delicious summer dishes, and manifesting itself into my famous Vodka Mojitos.
Now, I know Mint’s life cycle as I’ve been growing it (along with other yummies) for years. But I still get excited when I see the mint sprigs spring back to life (say that three times fast!) It still gives me hope!
Next week I will be getting a few birthday gifts, which I know are not important, it’s the thought that matters after all. But still, I’m a big baby and they will make me smile.
I especially look forward to spending time with family and friends because I love them very much. I’ll spread out those Birthday celebrations and savor those moments with the each individual I celebrate with.
I’m getting my eyebrows waxed this week. It’s the simple things folks, like having two distinct eyebrows instead of one, that make a huge difference in my over all feeling of well being.
And the last positive,...is YOU, wonderful citizens of dblogville. I love, learn and respect each of you in the D-O-C so very much.
You always understand, you never judge, always teach, and ALWAYS bring a smile (and an occasional tear) into my world everyday.
Thanks friends, I feel better already!
