Another week gone.
I had great readings for my blood sugar, so I am a happy camper!! Also went to a class, wanted to find out more about how to read labels. There were about 10 of us, and I did find out some useful things. Also that since I am over 65, and considered the "elderly", I can have higher readings, and still be good. However, I have better readings now than I did years ago!! Go figure, I have been saying that older people should have a bit higher for some time, but of course they had to find this out, and now tell us that!!!! Sometimes I feel that we are just experiments for the pharmaceuticals!!! Well, on to another subject, I finally have an appointment to get my implants (teeth) started. Have been waiting for the oral doctor and dentist to get together for their plans. I am a bit nervous about it, as it will take a two and half session, but I want to get it done all at once, as you have to wait for four months for those to heal before the next step!!! This is not cosmetic , but a needed procedure to have teeth to eat with. :-)!! You say, what have I been doing these past years without them, and why do I need them now!!?? Well, with diabetes you want the best possible dental health, and I figure if I keep using the few I have, they will eventually go bad, from over use!!! Isn't getting older the pits!! Just when you need things the most, they are going away!! Just glad that I can have it done. It is not inexpensive!!! Well, now that I have that off my chest, the week was quite nice, having rain mostly at night, and fair, sunny daytime. I can do better that way, as I get my walks in and we still get the rain that is badly needed. I heard from some of my chicks and so it was a nice week all around. Funny what little things make you happy, hearing from the kids, and grands is one that does, and having daffodils blooming is another. I still have not been able to get in the yard and do necessary work, but perhaps that will come soon. Just need a few days of sun and no rain. I will just be happy when I can do it. I guess the planting, etc can wait. It is still early. At least I can look at catalogs and plan for later. My antique club meeting is early next week, and I am ready for that, so that is good. None of the hostesses has called and said that they couldn't preform their duties. Yea!!! So it is a go!! My daughter is coming this weekend to visit which is nice. Hope it is nice weather for her. Well, that's it for now. Antique Rose
