Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

It's raining here, but not like a couple weeks ago. It would be nice to get back to regular rain again. Here's hoping that's what the Lord has in mind!

Jacob has a track meet on Wednesday. Luckily, it's home this time. I have to be in Savannah at 7:30 AM on Thursday, so it would have been a long, tired day for all of us.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Got to go build my snowfort to lob snowballs at all of from behind it.

ttyl
Thinking of LC, hope he feels better soon =)

Enjoy "Vacation"!! I love Chevy Chase!!

I'm with you, I hate going to the dentist. I had a dentist like that when I was a kid and I think that is what ingrained in me my fear of them.
But, that said, I go and get it over with and feel better for it, especially knowing I will not have to go back again for at least 6 months!

I just switched to Google chrome, got tired of internet explorer stopping and having to restart everything. I will let you know what I think once I figure it all out, but so far it is working fine.

Good afternoon everyone! I just got back from the Dr..bad news...He did an A1c test on me.it tells how high your blood sugar has been for the last 3 months. Mine came back very high and said that mine has averaged 335. since Christmas! yikes no wonder I have had no energy and have felt like I was knockin on heavens doors. your blood sugar should never be above 120 btw so 335 is like go check into the hospital before you go into a diebetic coma. I took the rest of the day off to contemplate my next step.But anyways hope everyone is having a good day. I will ttyl!

I'm off, gotta get packed back up and ready to head out.
hope you get it all done! Have a great day

It was nice to awaken to 4c (38f) temperatures this morning. There was a light drizzle, but it was not too noticeable. As soon as I stepped outside, however, it felt and smelled like Fall rather than Spring. I'm sure that will change soon enough. Temperatures in Ottawa are to hang around the freezing mark until about the beginning of next week and then get into the high single digits/40s. Spring is on its way.

Yesterday was a nice, quiet night. The gym was good for a couple hours. I am excited to do legs again very shortly. I'd been advised by my doctor to avoid it since I was having slight shooting pains in my knee. They've gone away. I'll start again on Wednesday. Lots of stretching helped take up my time. I have a doctor's appointment this morning for my knee. It's in its final stages of recovery, but I need a second/third opinion as to why it has taken so long. Hopefully this helps!

After the gym, Kim and I watched some TV. It was good to see the Bruins beat the Sens in a shootout. Then, the Kings beat the Flames, too. A good night all around for sports in our apartment. No plans for tonight, which is great. I really need to work on my assignment!

I hope everyone is enjoying themselves this week. Tomorrow we will all meet, once again, for our weekly adventure at the 'Pines. Even more special, it's the final gathering before St. Patrick's Day... who knows what that camel will have up his hooves. Have a great Tuesday, everyone!
good to hear your recovery is progressing.
We are having a touch of spring here in southern Ontario too, although today there is snow mixed in with the rain.
