things have changed alot in my life

Category: misc. rambling | Posted: Wed Jan 27, 2010 2:29 am

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.

So sorry your beloved pets have passed away. I'm happy that you have new furry companions though and look forward to seeing piccies of them.

Oh it's soooo good to have you back again!!!

That was a newsy letter.
I am sorry to hear that your man has Diabetes, but....
There is a football player here that is a bit of an oddball philosopher...he says that "every disadvantage has an advantage", loosely translated.
The advantage to this news of yours is that you both have lost some weight and that you are eating healthier...and...WANTING to eat healthier.
Hang in there, you guys and we will be looking forward to seeing the piccies when they come.
