Today - mostly okay  
Had hair colored yesterday - it is now very red and pretty.

Got up today at 11 and went to meet people for lunch. We had good discussions and it was nice to see people.

Came home and talked to zorac for a while. I don't know if it shows our level of comfort or the fact that I'm just really tired, but I am fantasizing about falling asleep in his lap.

I have gotten gifts for my mom, my aunt and my psuedo-cousin, one of Mark's gifts is on order and another has arrived. Also, many thanks to my special helper - Mark has received his birthday present. Now he just has to stare at it for a week before he can open it. *ebil laugh*

Saw endocrinologist on Thursday and dentist on Friday. Endo changed my meds completely, something I am VERY happy about, and now I get to take less insulin!!! Yay for fewer shots! Also, dentist was very pleased with my teeth and I don't have to have another cleaning for 6 months. Yay again!

Talked to boss about work issues and am feeling calmer about it, although I have to go in early tomorrow because a training session I was scheduled for is at 9, and I really should take it. Bleh - going to bed momentarily.

I currently have diaper ointment on my left foot with a plastic bag over it and then a sock. Before you think I've lost it entirely, it was suggested by my podiatrist to treat my overly-dry feets. Very weird, but then I thought you'd all like that.

Lastly, I have started to get cards! Thank you to lissannej, katrionaa, expetesso, frayer and constantine - they were all lovely. <3
 
 
I feel: sleepysleepy

That's great - I'm jealous ;)

I meant to reply to a comment you made in my journal ages ago about insulin pumps - I don't actually have one (they're a bit odd, really), at the time I was in hospital and having my insulin administered by one of those delightful little machines medical types are fond of (the doctors said if I didn't eat anything I'd be stuck with it for much longer - like having less shots a day is a problem).

Anyway, good to hear your meds have changed - meanwhile I'm still stuck on my four shots a day, but oh well ;)

*hugs* If I recall correctly, you're Type I, so I guess you're stuck with insulin shots. :/

::hugs::

Yep. Joy of joys ;)

I didn't know you weren't - but still, less shots=good, regardless of Type :)

Hey, if you can find Bag Balm-its in a green tin in most drugstores, its the most AMAZING moisturizer EVER!
glad to hear you're doing better. And your dad's doing better too.
Good luck at work...i hope it gets easier for you.
*hugs*

Does it work? Please let me know because my feets are a dry, itchy mess this time of year...to the extreme.

Glad Dad is doing better, too.

*huggles madly*

It actually did work, weird as it is. Try it some night when you don't want Dementor to bug you - the smell should keep him away. ;)

1. Wet your feet - right out of the bath/shower or whatever
2. Wipe A&D diaper ointment all over your feet up to the beginnings of your ankles
3. Wrap a plastic bag or plastic cling wrap around feet, completely covering them
4. Put on socks over plastic
5. Try to walk as little as possible before bed, because you slip all over the ointmenty plastic!

*huggles*

Pleased to hear you've been having good days and mostly okay days recently and I wish you strength to get through the ones, and see the good points in the ones, which aren't so favourable.

I have nothing original to say at all - just "still thinking of you and sending what I hope are kind thoughts".

That sounds like a much better day indeed; if my card helped in any way, I'm very glad of that. *loves the Morri*
