May 13, 2018: Sunday Thoughts

Some thoughts as I get ready for the week:

  • I had a quiet Mothers Day celebration with Andy’s family. We went to Longhorn Steakhouse. It’s their ‘go-to’ place for Mothers Day, since Andy’s brother and sister-in-law loves this location.
  • I have my annual Facebook ‘blackout’ on Mothers Day. As much as the posts are heartfelt, it’s just painful to view since my mother is no longer here to celebrate with me. I ventured onto Instagram today, and wished I hadn’t. Tomorrow will be precarious to tread onto social media as well, since the algorithms feel like you MUST view the posts you’ve missed over the weekend!
  • I had a much needed visit with a dear friend over the weekend. Without going through too much detail, she is going through many health difficulties. I truly cherished the time we spent together.
  • I picked up Levemir front the pharmacy this afternoon. I said ‘goodbye’ to Basaglar, due to the issue of weight gain while on the medication. Despite heavy exercise and activity, the weight gain continued. I’m hopeful the the Levemir will be a better option for my health.

May 1, 2018: Quite a Month

I can’t believe that May is here! It’s an emotional month in some aspects, and favorable in others. Mother’s Day is not a time that I look forward to…it hasn’t for a while, since Mom passed away 9 years ago. I do take the chance to celebrate the other moms in my life.

May has some positive points also, since I celebrate some friends’ birthdays. It gets pretty busy by the end of the month, but it’s a good kind of busy.

May also brings back the warm weather, and flowers…and allergies. For some reason my allergy medication decides to stop working this year. It’s going to be quite a month.
