April 9, 2018: More Freestyle Libre Findings

***These are my thoughts as I use my Freestyle Libre Sensor. My doctor prescribed the sensor to me back in February.*** As I continue to wear my Freestyle Libre sensor to manage my Type 1 Diabetes, I notice that the sensor nearly always reads lower than the standard glucose meter reading. Before meals I testContinue reading “April 9, 2018: More Freestyle Libre Findings”

April 8, 2018: Weekend Thoughts

Some thoughts before I ready myself for the week: Andy and I spent some time with good friends last night: We had dinner with a good friend in Jersey City, as part of her birthday weekend. Due to our conflicting schedules, we rarely spend time together these days, so it was fun to spend aContinue reading “April 8, 2018: Weekend Thoughts”

April 7, 2018: My Passion

I’m anticipating to begin reading ‘The Girl on the Train’ by the end of the weekend. I have it on my Kindle library, but work has placed it on the back burner for so long. My recent sign up for Book of the Month has reignited my passion for reading while multi-tasking: I managed toContinue reading “April 7, 2018: My Passion”

April 6, 2018: Easter Snoopys

I’m glad that I have all four Easter Snoopys! I chose them by randomly picking packages. The Easter Snoopys were sold in sealed bags that you couldn’t see through them. I still randomly chose a bag with anticipation of the new Itty Bitty Snoopy that would come home. Gladly different Easter Snoopys were selected.

April 5, 2018: Reading ‘The House on Mango Street’

While I stayed home yesterday from feeling under the weather, I read “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros. I figured since I’m waiting for my April Book of the Month, I can try to read this story as much as I can before returning to work. I wound up reading the entire bookContinue reading “April 5, 2018: Reading ‘The House on Mango Street’”

April 4, 2018: Seeking Solutions

Today has me feeling a bit under the weather, so I stayed home to get some much needed rest, and care for my wrist.

I wantContinue reading “April 4, 2018: Seeking Solutions”

April 3, 2018: Stressful

It’s been 2 weeks since I got the cortisone shot in my wrist to treat my tendinitis. The pain subsided for a few days, yet over the weekend it began to return. After a long workday of physical labor, my hand is back to feeling as uncomfortable as it did before I got the injection.Continue reading “April 3, 2018: Stressful”

April 2, 2018: “Not That I Could Tell”: A Small Summary

I finished reading my Book of the Month selection for March, ‘Not That I Could Tell’ by Jessica Strawser. It turned out to be an engaging read. The story centered around the small community of Yellow Springs, Ohio, as a group of women are left to figure out the whereabouts of one of their friendsContinue reading “April 2, 2018: “Not That I Could Tell”: A Small Summary”

April 1, 2018: Both Parts of Easter

Easter Sunday holds a special meaning for me. When Andy and I started dating five years ago, I met his family on Easter Sunday. I first thought I was only meeting his parents, which that alone is a big step. It turned out that I was meeting Andy’s entire family that day: his parents andContinue reading “April 1, 2018: Both Parts of Easter”
