Slept the day away
Thursday, October 31, 2019      5 comments

I simply could not get back to sleep after the fire alarm last night. I am grateful it was a false alarm, but it was still hard to nod off. So I slept the greater part of the day away. When I did get up, I got my kitchen cleaned up, made ... Read more
False fire alarm

Someone in my building set off the fire alarm and we had at lease 2 fire trucks here. Lots of seniors and old people with mobility problems so they go door to door to see if they have to help anyone out. Luckily it was a false alarm so everythin... Read more

They went around to all the units and tested everyone's wall jacks. But I did not know if it had actually been fixed until my evening care worker came at 6. It works! I am so relieved.... Read more

Insulin pump?
Saturday, October 19, 2019      4 comments

I went to an education class on insulin pumps today. I learned a few things, (yes, even this old dog can learn a thing or two, lol) but I don't think a pump is for me. Not quite as simple to use as it might sound at first AND very expensive. ... Read more

Happy Thanksgiving day to my fellow Canadians. Sis cooked a turkey last weekend because a couple of her kids were able to come home then. I wasn't feeling well so I did not join them. So today we had "our" Thanksgiving. Sis and BIL pic... Read more

I had a follow up visit with the foot nurse today. The first time I went, my nails were a real mess - nails ingrown and nail fungus. And so sensitive, it hurts to have anyone touch them. Added to that, I have very very sensitive skin on my le... Read more

For years I have added a can of tuna to my salad, (to give it the protein to make a complete meal.) then some grated cheese, (usually Parmesan but sometimes cheddar) Then I discovered freeze dried cheese so I switched to that exclusively. In a... Read more
