Good morning. Wow - can anyone believe we're almost through another year? At times, it seems as though the days are dragging, but suddenly, I look back and realize that a whole month has gone by. It seems like not too long ago, we were getting ready for Christmas and here we are again!!
Anyway, I hope everyone has gotten through the Thanksgiving travel, feasts, etc with no ill effects. I haven't really started doing much for Christmas, other than making a few cards and we put up our outside lights this past week. I plan to get the Christmas tree up this coming week, so it will start looking like another holiday. We aren't going to be buying very much, since we give the kids money and now the grandkids are old enough to want money as well. That's okay with me, as it eliminates the need to worry about what to get everyone or whether I'm getting what they want, etc.
I've been super busy this past week, but it seems like I'm spinning my wheels and not really getting anything accomplished. That's not like me! I had a doctor's appointment on Monday. Even though my thyroid hormone levels have gone down quite a bit, he wouldn't change my dosage because my levels were still "in range". My glucose levels were high again, so that's becoming a concern. The doctor has ordered more tests to see what HBa1c, and other parameters are doing but I won't get those until I'm due for blood work in 3 months. Maybe by then, I can get levels back under control.
This coming week, will be another busy one... we have a funeral tomorrow, I have a calligraphy study group on Tuesday and an echocardiogram on Wednesday.
You'd think that with all the activity I've had going on, I'd be losing weight hand over fist, but unfortunately, most of my activity is done, either sitting down or standing in one place - so not really "active". Even with that, I was up a couple of pounds earlier in the week, but yesterday, I was back to the same as last week. I'd like to have been down a pound, but staying the same is better than gaining and since my weight is bouncing around, I know it's fluid and not fat I'm gaining/losing. Maybe this week, I can get in a few walks, etc and get down a little bit vs staying the same!!
So how about y'all? I hope you've been able to reach your goal(s) this week.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
**Stay safe and wash your hands**
