Okay. I SO should NOT have done that . . .

But I did. What can I say, I have zero self control. I came downstairs this evening to discover that while I was in the bed room with my hubby, watching a movie . . . (Yes. Watching a movie - we're old farts for God's sake!) Anyway, while I was upstairs, the kids had started gobbling up the brownies that Jenn made this afternoon. Well, what was I supposed to do? Of course I helped myself to one. Okay, maybe two or three, but they were little - tiny actually. *sigh* Anyway, now I feel so sick. No, there's nothing wrong with Jenn's brownies, nor her baking skills. In fact, they were quite tasty. It's just that: a.) being diabetic, I'm not supposed to eat yummy and delicious things like that. And, b.) For the past week, I've been struggling with some kind of sinus plague that has my nose sneezing and running, and draining snot into every southern body part I have. My ears are painful, my throat is sore, my chest is congested, and every joint in this old body of mine is achy and stiff. Worst of all, my stomach is queasy. And when your sinuses are producing so much goo that your stomach is in revolt, it's just not a good idea to eat rich, chocolaty goodies. Now, I'm paying the price. * double sigh*

UGH! I'm so sick of feeling sick. At least I'm not alone. Seems like everyone has had a touch of this misery this winter. I know that just about everyone in this house has it to some degree. People have been walking around here like a bunch of mindless zombies, moaning and groaning, and sleeping at odd hours. Personally, I could live, or at least ignore, all the other physical discomforts if my head wasn't throbbing all the time. I don't do well with headaches - they make me cranky and argumentative. My head is in such a fog that I can't seem to stop the ugly remarks from popping out of my mouth. So it's best if I just keep to myself - which in this house, is easier said than done.

So now you know why I haven't been blogging much lately. Actually, when I have been semi conscious, I've been working on organizing and re-designing my blogs. (as you probably noticed) I just got so flustered with having everything strung out all over the web, I decided to put them all together in one place. My hubby has been pretty impressed with my work so far. I'm still not done tweaking things but, I've got the biggest part of it done. If you have some time, check out some of my other sites and let me know what you think.

Let's see what else is going on . . . I suppose I should do something else besides complain . . . Hmmmm.
Well, it seems that Nick will continue to be with us for a while. The courts have granted him a 45- 60 day reprieve to straighten out his medications. I guess that's a good thing, although it would be really great to get all this behind him.
I got a notice for jury duty in the mail a couple of weeks ago. This is the fourth time that I've been called ! I wonder why some people are always being called, and others never seem to get a notice? Anyway, I have to show up Monday morning at 9AM. I'm really hoping that I get rejected. I had to serve as a juror once before, and it really wasn't much fun. The whole jury selection thing is so screwed up. You never know what kind of person they are looking for. Seems like the more you act like you're disinterested, the more likely you are to be chosen. I have so many mixed feelings about our whole justice system - it's hard for me to participate in the stupidity of it all.
Other than that, there isn't much new, or at least I can't think of anything with this headache. I think I'm going to try and get some sleep tonight so I don't feel so yucky for church tomorrow.
Good night all.

It's really good to catch up with what been in your life, dear San! I realize that I don't get around to read blogs as much as I did. Of course, in the past I didn't sleep 12 - 14 hours a day.

Being one who is new to having diabetes, I am constantly tempted by cookies and ice cream and, if I had them, brownies. (Lord, I sooooo want a bunch of brownies at the moment!)

Good night, my very dear frien!
