Well, the best news of ALL is that I have such awesome friends as you guys! Thanks SO MUCH for all of your support through my health woes. It's such a great source of strength for me.
I went to the doctor today and she said that we caught this in time - I can possibly reverse the diabetes and be just fine (just like your grandma, Tess!) This was a huge relief to me. Even though I wasn't surprised by the diagnosis, it's still something to take seriously. And I plan to.
I will be headed to a nutritionist sometime soon to help me plan meals. I'm determined to get back to exercising, which I've put off for a few weeks now, and start incorporating more movement into my day.
Overall, I feel a sense of relief. I know that sounds weird...but I feel like I can really make the healthy changes this time because I have a lot of motivation behind it. I don't want to even think about the complications of diabetes...therefore, I have to make the changes NOW. :-)
I plan to write, write, write, this weekend. But I'm also going to have to make a trip to a local used bookstore that is going out of business. Sigh...would love to take it over and have a business of my own. But that's not in the cards right now. Anyway, she's selling everything and I need bookshelves! (and more books, too!!!)
It's my chapter's writing retreat this weekend, too. We found a neat little hotel in the Czech capital of Nebraska - Wilber - and we'll be there Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. While I will probably only go on Saturday, it will be a wonderful chance to get together and write.
Hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend! Hugs and love to you all!!!!!
I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...

Yesterday I woke up in a fantastic mood. I felt pretty good (you never feel terrific when you have chronic illnesses) and I couldn't wai...
