Hello, everyone. I hope you're doing well. I have been so busy, I just can't keep up. My daughter is going off to college soon and we've been getting ready for that. She is graduating from high school in a few weeks and we've been busy putting together a little get-together for her and her friends in our backyard. We decided that since our patio and deck weren't big enough for a party, we would quadruple the size of the deck. Phase 1 was a 16' x 8' extension of the existing deck, one step higher. Phase 2 is a same size extension in the other direction, again, one step higher. Phase 3 is a same size extension joining the previous 2, only 2 steps higher. Since our house sits lower than the backyard, a lot of digging is involved and my poor back is killing me. In addition to the additions, I have been creating paths, using rock and stepping stones. I have moved almost a ton and a half of rock, almost a ton of old bricks, and a bunch of concrete pavers for stepping stones. This is all on top of the painting and gutter modifications I did for a friend, the drywall repairs and painting I'm doing for another friend, and the landscaping I did for another friend who is unable to walk due to an injury. Top all of this with band rehearsals, playing music, and giving drum lessons and you'd think I'd have enough on my plate.
Speaking of 'enough on my plate', how are ya'll doing with your low carb living? I've been doing pretty good, though I must admit, I went a little crazy on Mother's Day. I had a slice of cheesecake and a cookie. As soon as it hit my mouth, I wished I had just stuck with the strawberries and kiwi. But the great thing about this being a lifestyle is, if you screw up you can just get right back to it. And I did. I feel so much better living low carb. I have more energy, my mind is sharper, and I just feel good.
I hope all of you will bear with me when I neglect to blog. I feel like I'm letting you down, but sometimes life gets in the way of living, doesn't it?
I'm still putting together more blogs on diabetic misinformation, so look for that coming soon. Well, I gotta go. See ya soon!
