Thoughts Lately

I've realized that it isn't always your closest friends who add that extra special touch to your day.

As much as I have loved living with each of my roommates, I'm loving living by myself right now...I guess it is a good thing that I don't have a choice about that at this point anyway.

I love to travel, but having traveled so much this year, it is nice to have a break to stay put and be involved in my own life again.

Trying something new, like cake decorating, has been fun...even if I can't stand the sight of frosting at the moment.

Most girls at my age and status are pining for a husband and children.  I look forward to having those things someday, but for now, I'm enjoying my life.

It is nice to have a boss who is a female.

God not only answers my prayers, but also the random thoughts that I have in the back of my mind sometimes.

Funny that after blogging about my fabulous blood sugar control, I couldn't get my blood sugar levels to stay down for the life of me for days.  I forgot to knock on wood after writing that post.

I'm glad that I ended up staying in Utah for now.  My tune will probably change once it starts snowing.

Nothing is a coincidence.

For the first time in over 5 years (that I remember...actually...that I have record of through my insurance information online) my A1C level (test showing how well your blood sugar level is doing over the past three months) is in CONTROL.  The goal is to have your A1C level to be in the 7s, but even better is to be in the 6s.  Non diabetics should be around 4-5.  At my doctor appointment on Monday, the results came back that I was at a 6.8.  So, 5+ years of being in the 8s and 9s and it only took my doctor 8 months to get me into a healthy range.  I love my glucose sensor and diabetes management team!

Why oh why do I live in the middle of a landmass?

Since June I have been complaining about how summer was almost over.  Everyone pretty much just laughed at me and said we had plenty of summer left.  And now.  Here it is.  SEPTEMBER and summer is GONE.

That happened fast.  

I guess I was right.

As usual.
