It’s time for another visit to my Neurologist this week, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he says about the Diabetes diagnosis and my Physical Therapy exercises. I’m still having some difficulty keeping my blood glucose numbers where they should be, and that keeps me somewhat down in the dumps. I feel like hubby and I are doing everything possible to put the right foods in me, so I just don’t understand why I can’t keep my levels in range all the time. It is just another complex disease to have to deal with.
I’ve been working really hard to get our new Collectibles Catalog online for the last few weeks, and the clutter I’ve made with all my stacks of plates and such is getting to me. It seems like we’re living in a warehouse these days, with boxes stacked everywhere, full of plush animals and vintage items, too. It’s a fun business, and we enjoy going out on the buying jaunts, but then I come home and have to try to find a place to store our “finds”. It seems I can’t have my cake and eat it, too … a clean house and keep on buying new lovies and collectible finds.
I’m still practicing with YouTube videos of Sacred Harp music, and it’s a slow go to learn how to do it. My brain power is definitely not what it used to be, but that could be old age creeping up on me, too. All I know is that I don’t learn new things anywhere near as easily as I once did, and it’s aggravating and frustrating! I read the other day about a 90 something year old lady finishing college, and I thought to myself how impossible it would be for me to absorb all that information now.
I am being very successful with my weight loss attempts. I’m down another couple of pounds, losing at the rate of 1 pound about every 10 days. I’m hoping that by going this slowly and steadily with it that I will not end up with the baggy skin they always show on TV.
Speaking of TV, we’ve been without any TV reception now for several weeks, thanks to an electrical storm that killed our amplifier and antenna rotator. We’ve discovered some of our favorite shows on hulu.com, and I have my notebook hooked up to the TV, so we can both watch the same thing at the same time. We have a large collection of movies, too, so we’ve managed to “watch the tube” several hours a night. I’ve ordered a new amplifier, and do plan to replace the ruined parts and get our television shows back. I do feel good about my success in getting the picture on my laptop to show on the TV. So some neurons are still firing up there.
I’ve done a lot of whining today, and for that I’m sorry. I considered erasing the whole post, but I want this blog to be a true look at what it’s like to have my health problems, so you’re stuck with it. My apologies.
