Some Things

  • Michael and I enjoyed our time away in Virginia Beach. We went to The Funny Bone and enjoyed the comedy of Bill Dwyer. But, the comedian before him, Dan Davidson, was much funnier. He made me laugh so hard I cried. It was nice to cry from laughing for a change.

  • We stayed at The Wyndham. We had a balcony over-looking the ocean. It was beautiful. I took pictures but haven't downloaded them to my computer yet. So, we'll pretend this is the picture I took.

    • Riley ran high all night long the night we were gone as well as most of the rest of the next day. Once we returned home his sugars evened out a bit. Maybe he's allergic to being away from me?

      • Holden keeps reminding me that next year is his senior year of high school. He gets a kick out of watching my eyes tear up.
      • We are going this week to rent his tux for the prom. There will be more tearing up at that time.
      • Riley has started up with soccer. He is loving it. He has the best coach in the world, Michael.

      • I have been having some minor health issues. It's nothing life threatening, just something that was causing quite a bit of pain. The treatment involves a medicine that has some side effects. I've been having terrible headaches as well hot flashes. My original pain has been replaced by head pain and a red face. I'm not sure it's the lesser of two evils.

      • They gave me medicine for the headaches that knock me on my butt. I can't really take it because I don't have time to be on my butt for very long.

      • Riley started using a new machine this week. I love, love, love it. It is the Freestyle Lite. We were using the Freestyle Flash, but got the Lite for free. It's a new and improved version of the Flash which I loved, loved, loved also.

      • Riley has started checking pretty much all of his sugars himself. Before he tested himself at school but when he was at home Michael and I did the testing.

      • He comes to tell me what his sugar is after he tests. He is now able to tell me if it's low or if it's high. Yet when I said to Michael the other day that his sugar was one hundred and seventeen Riley said, "No, it's not. It's one one seven."

      • Riley is also dosing himself most of the time when he is at home. He wants to. If I do it without thinking he'll get upset and say that he wanted to do it. He only does it with supervision of course.

      • Both of my boys are growing up.

      It's tough when you realize your kids are growing up. You start seeing those milestone events - like prom, graduation, etc. I think it's especially difficult for moms. My husband doesn't seem as emotional about it as I am. But you're raising your kids well & they'll be prepared for the life ahead of them. That's what I keep telling myself about mine. Most of the time, my tears are tears of joy. So I guess that's okay. I'm glad you had a good time on your weekend get-away. I'm sure it did you good.
