Hello, my dear readers! Wes and I are back home and trying to get back into the groove of living. I find it very hard to get back into my routines when we've been away, and this time has seemed a little harder. I was exhausted when we got home on Saturday, but we had to prepare for church on Sunday and for a youth activity at our house after church on Sunday night. I moved like a zombie all weekend, slept as much as I could, then went to bed by 9:30 Sunday night and slept till I woke up naturally Monday morning. Today I'm finally feeling like myself again, praise the Lord!
We also decided to begin a new way of eating for my diabetes, and for this first week, my blood sugars have been and will be all over the place as my body adjusts. Yesterday was no fun at all! I had just a bit of a low blood sugar this afternoon, but I stayed calm - even though my body was yelling that I needed to do something fast! It came up again quite nicely and I'm feeling fine at the moment. I believe this way of eating will be beneficial for me in the long run, so please pray for me as I adjust to it. I plan to make it my lifestyle, as it's not hard at all once you get past the first few days.
I must apologize for the trouble I had posting from the train two weeks ago. The website said that the Parlour Car had free wifi for the sleeper car passengers, and it did . . . to an extent. It seemed to have trouble handling more than a handful of connections, and we discovered that, if Wes and I sat near each other, one of us could pick up the wifi signal but the other could not. We found that to be the case both on the trip down and back. So I ended up not being able to connect nearly as well as I'd hoped, and I had trouble connecting and downloading pictures even at hotels. So . . . I will recap our train experience, with pictures, as we go through this week. Thanks so much for your patience!
