My mother and sister have type 2 diabetes. My sister has a wound on her big toe that really is scarey. She is going to a wound clinic and I pray that they can help her heal. I am very worried for her.

My mother has been able to manage her diabetes very well since she had an aortic valve replacement. I know the work that is involved to keep the blood sugar levels right. I give her insulin shots on a regular basis. I don't think my sister has been as diligent about monitoring her blood sugar as she should have been, and that makes me angry. I do not want anything to happen to her.

My great grandmother killed herself because she had a wound that went gangreen. They did not have anything like they do today to prevent infection like that.

If you have any type of diabetes, please take care of yourself. It is a serious disease.

Peace and Love.

February 15

No school today, it was an inservice day for us. I went to a Tech Fair at a local High School and saw some great things to use in the classroom. Just have to ask to get it! Maybe I can dream anyway.

I love the car so far! Was able to finally sync the phonebook with the car and it is working wonderfully. No more hands on talking! The average MPH in the city is anywhere from 24 to 29 MPG on the sticker, and I am at 26.7 right now. It is great!

Plan on having a relaxing weekend. I hope so!

Peace and Love!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! Hope you had a wonderful day. My student's made my day today. I made a mistake though and allow them to munch on their treats in class. I'll never let that happen again! They were wound up tighter than a spring! Anyway, got the lessons accomplished and all was well.

Have a great night!

Peace and Love!

New Car!

Well, I got my new car tonight. It was the longest day ever waiting and waiting for school to be out! Everything went flawlessly. Such a smooth transaction and I love my new 2008 Ford Focus. It has the Sync feature which is very cool! It is raining here, and was raining when I brought the car home, so I don't have a picture yet. Will post one when I get it.

Watching Big Brother tonight, taping the second hour of American Idol. Have a good night.

Peace and Love!

Went to my doctors appointments today. Took the day off from school. Very disappointed with the Urologist however. He says we may never find out what is going on. I am going for a test on Monday to check out my bladder though. I was just hoping he would tell me something... The other test today... don't know the results yet. Hopefully will know this week sometime.

Now, for the unexpected part. Went to pick my father up at the Car Dealership. He dropped his car off for service. We went into the office and chatted with the guy we buy our cars from, and... I ended up buying a new car! I thought I could get it tonight, but I will have to wait til tomorrow :( It is a 2008 Ford Focus. Beautiful with the Sync in it. I am so excited! What is even better is that I raised my credit score enough in the past 2 years to get an awesome interest rate. One of the best I have ever had! I am very proud of myself!

A lot of excitement for one day. Can't wait til tomorrow to get my car!

Peace and Love!
