For some reason, I can't post a title!
Just a few random thoughts today. We've finally settled back into a somewhat normal routine. Keeping in mind that normal is just a setting on the dryer, of course. Today we went out door-to-door for a little over an hour. Lots of walking. Hopefully we'll see some results from our work today. Although it's still not very hot (that comes next week), it was still hot out there walking in the sunshine. I did enjoy the scenery, though. We began on a higher point of the city, so every door I came to, I was looking for the views of the ocean. Some folks are so blessed! LOL I love pretty views.
I'm going to have to call my doctor on Monday. I missed my last post-bloodwork appointment because we were moving. I have not done well in the past three months, either in the sense of taking care of myself, and not surprisingly, in the sense of how I feel. I've been incredibly tired, and it's because my blood sugars are too high. Way too high, even first thing in the morning. It's a combination of things, for which I have only excuses - no really good reasons. I have gradually been realizing that, although my diabetes is still fairly mild compared to others, it is beginning to progress, and I'm not able to coast through my treatment. Now I'm having to pay attention, and I have to keep up with all three aspects of my day-to-day care - diet, exercise, and medication. And . . . I really don't like it, to be honest! So I'm having some attitude adjustments along with having to swallow my pride and admit that I've not taken care of myself. Pray for me. I really am battling my attitude toward it all right now.
Because of not feeling very energetic, I have fallen behind in housework. I've just been treading water. I have so much to do, and I have to get Beth's new skorts made for camp. I'm making myself remember that I can do anything for 15 minutes and take it in short bits. That helps me to not feel so overwhelmed, and it lets me get work done as well as rest when I need to. Some may scoff at only working in 15-minute increments, but it has been a lifesaver for me!
As I mentioned above, it's supposed to get really hot here next week, in the upper 80 to around 90. I don't like hot weather, but the sunshine is great! LOL So far, we haven't had too much trouble keeping this house cool. We'll see what happens next week.
Deb had asked for the Mexican Chicken Salad on my menu plan this week. I ended up not fixing it, so I'll forward it to next week and post the recipe then.
Have a great weekend!
