things have changed alot in my life
Things in my life are a lot different than they were when I was last on the Stew.
We found out John has diabetes. It has taken a lot of getting used to watching carbs and being on a sugar-free diet. The good side...Hubby and I have both lost about 40 pounds. We feel so much better and have so much more energy.
I haven't had a garden in a couple of years and I look so forward to growing and eating fresh veggies!! They are so expensive to buy at the grocery store. I no longer crave junk food. I now crave fresh veggies and try to cook as health as I can. A year ago I would have said "Oh there is nothing better than a big greasy slice of pizza". Now I don't think there is a better meal than a slice of salmon, wild rice and fresh veggies!! Yummy :)
My sons are all almost grown. My youngest Alan is 18 and a senior in high school this year. In just a short 4 months he will be graduating and going on to college. My middle Brandon is 20 and works with his dad at the power plant in Jewett. Because of personal reasons I no longer have any contact with my oldest son or anything that pertains to him. It's a sad situation but it is for the best. Maybe one day he will straighten up his life and be a productive member of society. Until then I can only pray for him! For now I focus my attention on my two sons who are great young men!!
Ok that's a little more than I intended to throw on you guys...sorry!
Another thing in my life that has changed is my pets. I still have Callie my cat and my two parrots but I no longer have Bailey, Duke, Stachie or Bobby Ray Possum. They have all passed away. They are missed very much and I guess I will always miss them just like I do Bert and Bebe. Our newest furry babies are one big rough and rowdy Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Xanadu Jokers Are Wild...Joker for short and we have a little Dachshund named Waylon. I call him Way-Way but Hubby calls him Muttley!! :)
My computer is being a pain and for some reason won't let me upload photos but as soon as I figure out the problem I will add photos of all my babies. I may transfer my pics for my laptop to my desktop and see if I can get them on that way...at least until we solve the problem.
Well I guess that is all for my blog today. I know y'all are just rearing to hear more of my boring life!!! LOL :)

Learning to live with diabetes takes a lot of time and energy for sure. I'm glad you are doing well with it. It helps to have someone who cares to help you along with it. dooley
That's a lot in a short time in your life. *hugs* I'm so glad you're here, and I'm looking forward to seeing your new family members.
I discovered that my husband, Ian, also has diabetes Julie and it can be difficult at first to adjust. However, like you, both of us now eat a far healthier diet and are both losing weight!! I'm looking forward to all the fruit and veggies I will be growing this year.
That was a newsy letter.
