Too Many Balls In The Air

It feels like I have too many balls in the air right now! Sometimes I feel frazzled when too much is happening!

My surgery on the 26th of January went well. I’m back to eating mush until my gums heal, but they are coming along. They are more painful now than when I had the teeth extracted. I guess that’s from the gum “shaving”! In another week or two, the stitches should have come out and I can go back in to redo my impressions.

We are steadily settling into the townhome. There are a lot of differences from the old apartment, but that’s what we wanted. Moki hasn’t truly gotten to enjoy the backyard yet, especially now with the ice coverage. Spring is coming for her!

Hubby is home with us until Friday because of this Texas weather. I always love his company ❤️. We have been watching Netflix, Prime and Hulu like crazy! We started a new series on Prime this morning called Three Pines. We are only on episode 3, but it seems pretty good. Hubby and I love a good mystery!

I’m really looking forward to this weather breaking. I’m not a fan of winter at all. It’s actually kind of depressing. Moki doesn’t seem to like it much either! Life goes on. We shall be victorious! 😅


What many people don’t understand is that people with depression have so many things to deal with that they don’t ever get mentioned. The thoughts about everything going on can really weigh on you. We have a whole second set of things to handle beyond the surface. All I can do is my best.

My Awesome Doctor’s Visit

My last doctor’s visit was a few months ago. I always worry because I get afraid that something is happening in my body that I don’t know about. I try not to concentrate on things like that because I can really work myself into a tizzy!

On my appointment a few months ago my A1c was 7.6. Being a type 2 diabetic is so hard. Some days I just want to eat any and everything that I want! In my dreams I have a nice dinner from Olive Garden, topped with a brownie and ice cream!

After that appointment I knew I had to really do something instead of just talking about it. I signed up at Summit and started just walking for 30 minutes a day. They have an indoor track which is so convenient. Texas heat is no joke! Even on days when I don’t go, I end up walking Moki, so I’m getting at least 30 minutes of exercise at least 3 or 4 days a week.

So back to my appointment the other day: my A1c dropped to 6.6! I am so happy about this! Fellow diabetics and supporters know how big of a deal this is. All my other tests were looking good too and I left there with a renewed sense of purpose. My anxiety is trying to stop me from going to the Summit, but I refuse to let that happen. I will be back!
