Hello again

Well I can't believe it's been 8 months since I last posted. It's been a heck (insert strong language here) of a year. I've come very close to posting several times. Even a couple of times sat down and opened up the word processor, but something would intervene before I even got to the thought collection stage. Now I sit here at 2:30 in the morning after getting to sleep and then reawakening.

Thanks to all those that have mentioned me in a blog post or dropped by to comment. It was very much appreciated. It's nice to know you're missed in a community where very few of us have ever met face to face.

I'll have to bring you guy's up to date over the course of the next week... here again, as time permits. I'm OK diabetically speaking, even though my bG readings have been swinging widely of late. As most of you know they are difficult to control tightly, especially this time of year. I continually thank God for my body's ability to tolerate bG swings. In about 6 weeks I will celebrate(?) 39 years with this disease and I'm still in good health.

Back in March I began slipping off the exercise wagon. For a while I held onto the wagon while it drug me down the road and then I finally fell off completely. After missing only 10 days in 2006, the current year has been dismal. Over the holidays I'm going to try to get consistent again, meaning I hope to do something every day in hopes I will set a precedent for the new year.

Here it is Christmas eve. I will join you in the morning scurrying around town to pick up a few last minute items. Later in the day we'll go over to a friends house for Christmas eve dinner. We've traditionally gone to church on Christmas eve, but this year finds us, oddly enough, without a church home so this invitation is a nice change to what has become our holiday tradition.

Here's to your Christmas celebration being filled with hope, happiness and great memories. Blessings to all.

Hello!! I caught your comment on my blog and was hoping you were starting up again here on your own. You were very much missed.

It seems a lot of PWD's around the OC are in the same situation excercise wise (including myself minus the D).

It's time to start the New Year with a clean slate :)

Have a very Merry Christmas.

Hey Keith!

I always say, post when you can and when you want to - but never let it be another source of stress for you.

Life takes our priorities in different directions. Sometimes we just have to ride it out.

Great to hear from you. Happy holidays!
