Early to bed and early to rise

Woke up this morning at 0448 with a slight but throbbing pain in my foot and a yawning void in my stomach, so I got up and went through my morning routine an hour before I normally do - being careful to disarm both alarm clocks before I headed out to the kitchen. Blood sugar was once again in the green, which is starting to get a wee bit scary.

Today will be full of preparations for the weekend. I need to compile a list of stuff for Kale and Scott to get out of the storage locker on Thursday night, a shopping list of groceries for Melody and I to pick up at Cub and United Noodle on Thursday morning after I get fitted for the pressure sleeve, and a letter to the management informing them that they can take their lease renewal offer and shove it up their gunga sideways so that it gives them excruciating hemorrhoids (or words to that effect). It has not been a pleasant stay here; the building is clearly decaying, the management has been sullen and difficult at best, and the amenities here are simply not worth the extra rent I'm paying, to say nothing of the utilities. With any luck they'll be cooperative and let us move in mid-July.

The early rising allowed me to check the eBay sales (good) and throw a few more CDs up from the dwindling collection in the bedroom closet. There are some more in the entryway closet, but those can wait until next week. Tonight I need to do some laundry, write some papers, and hopefully not stay up too late....which, considering how drained I've been feeling of late, shouldn't really be a problem. Time to get prepped for work.

I'm not too familiar with the blood sugar meter, but I hope you stay healthy. Oh, and ever since I found United Noodle (it took me way too long to find it the first time... I just kept walking around the block) I've been hooked. Yay!

Basically, the glucosimeter measures the amount of sugar in your blood by milligrams of sugar per deciliter (10 cc) of blood. 90-120 is considered normal, 121-150 is okay but not good, 151-200 marginal, and anything over 200 means you're either eating too much or not exercising enough. I'm used to seeing numbers in the "okay" range, with occasional wobbles into the normal and marginal ranges, so while all these good readings are, well, good, it's a little unnerving because things are going *too* well, yahmeen?

I've been an insulin-dependent diabetic since before I was two (I'm 40-something now), so I know how important blood sugar control is.

I'll be at CONvergence, so I'll introduce myself to you if I see you.

Coolness! I'll be pretty hard to miss - hang around the Consuite on Saturday and sooner or later you'll see my carcass parked out front doing the badgerwombat thing, since I'll be spending all of Saturday doing panels or working in the consuite.

Er, I meant that it would be cool to meet you, not that being a Type I diabetic is cool. #^_^#

I knew which you were talking about. (^_^)

Good! The Ingles, it is sometimes not the friend of the Wombat...
