Feeling Better

After a good night's sleep I'm feeling much better. I've really been following my diabetic diet and this week I've managed to keep by glucose levels where they are supposed to be. I'm monitoring it diligently.

I'm really looking forward to the weekend. The weather is cool and I want to get outside. I don't have any plans but I'm sure I'll think of something to do.

I also want to plan a trip. It doesn't have to be an exotic destination but just a chance to get away. I'm considering getting a map and throwing a dart. That might be kind of fun. My daughter's love traveling but I've never been one to get far from home (a trait I inherited from my dad but one I'd like to modify). My dad traveled for business for 22 years and after he opened his own business he never wanted to travel again not even for pleasure. I was always the kid who got so desperately homesick I couldn't even spend the night with a friend. I'd call my mother in the middle of the night to come and get me. Pull that stunt too many times and you stop getting invitations to sleep overs. :( Hopefully it is not too late to change!

I'm glad to know that you're taking care and feeling better.

My older daughter decided she wanted to go home with grandma and grandpa and spend the night when she was 5 or 6. At midnight, my mom called me to come and get her. She was crying for her momma. Thankfully, it never happened again, though.

I like the sound of your post today. So glad you are really working on your diet.
Hope you can expand on that budding adventerous spirit.
I always hurt my parent's
(especially my mother's) feelings for I was never homesick. I loved them but the thought of something new was intoxicating. Start small but toss that dart.
