Six Things Before LA.
It's been a very silly week so far here on Six Until Me ... may as well close it out that way. Here's The Friday Six:
Oh for pete's sake ... we open with the LOLCat Bible. For some strange reason, I'm surprised this exists. I clicked around and despite the fact that it's extremely silly and completely foolish, I almost spit out my tea laughing.
Now that the dress has been ordered (yay!) and my bridesmaids are all getting together next weekend (minus my wonderful sister, who is in VA, but she'll be fitted down there) for their first dress fittings, it's time to start thinking about invitations. I've seen a few websites where you can order invitations, but I'm looking for some referrals. If you used an online service for your wedding invites, can you send me a link? (And we've chosen ivory and green for our colors - a very Irish wedding!)
Okay, this guy had an ear grafted to his arm. What a freak. This is the first literal application of "talk to the hand." Again, this has absolutely nothing to do with diabetes, but it made me laugh out loud and force co-workers to watch it with me.
The highs have it, apparently. This week has sucked as far as diabetes control goes. Despite the fact that my A1c was decent and my blood sugars have been relatively in-range for the last few months, I hit some big highs on Tuesday and Wednesday. I spent much of the day with sweaters on my teeth and lethargy wrapped around me like a blanket.
Kinked cannula? No. Over-zealous eating patterns? Not really. Looks like I gaffed up my workouts and did a fancy combination of overeat/under-bolus to keep my sugars from dropping during my workout. Of course they didn't drop, like they normally do. For some reason, they orbited instead, hitting a cruising altitude of about 300 mg/dl. It appears to be over now, but it sucked for a few days, to the point where I convinced I was piping in maple syrup instead of insulin.
YAY! SUM has cracked into the Top Three for the Blogger's Choice Awards for Best Health Site. Thanks for all of your support! Voting closes on October 19th, and I'm excited to see the outcome. Right now, they've made the results blocked out for the top three sites, so I can't tell where I'm at. All I know is that I like the little yellow guy icon. :)
And on Sunday morning, I'll be heading out to LA for the week and working from the sunny west coast for a few days. I have my clothes packed, my laptop at the ready, and a bottle of Xanax for the damn flight. (I still don't like flying. Not even a little bit.) I'm hoping to see some buddies while I'm out in LA - including one Mr. SuperG himself!
Have a good weekend and I'll catch you on Monday!
