This day started with the mad rush to get to the library, the store, and get Hub's lunch made before he had to take our only vehicle to work in the next town. I got it all done just in time.

After he left, I swallowed hard and decided to call the doctor to find out what my lab results were from last week. I really, really, didn't feel like I could handle anymore bad news, but something was telling me to call today. Something was telling me to hurry up and call NOW. I called and sat on hold for about 10 minutes, and was tempted to hang up and forget the ugly mess. The nurse finally came on the line and said that ALL of my lab results came back normal. I asked her if she was sure???? She went through and said that my A1C (blood sugar) was slightly over 7, which is down from the 11 that I had before Christmas, and all other issues were just right. The nurse and I had a little time of rejoicing over the phone, and she told me to keep doing whatever it is that I am doing. Please visit findyourweigh.com, if you want to know about my dietary changes. The owner of the site is a fellow homeschooler, and was surely sent by God to minister to people such as myself.

On the homeschooling front, I have Princess Abbey doing her math on tenmarks.com, while Princess Melody is trudging through a refresher writing course to improve potential test scores. Princess Tarja and I read two Alphabet town books, and now she is keeping busy by bothering her sisters while they do their work.

After school, Princess Melody might have a housekeeping job to do for a neighbor, we will all have twirling lessons, and then Princess Abbey has softball practice.

I am thinking strongly of changing our twirling club name from The Sparklers, which was our name in our home town, to Celebration Corps or Celebration Parade Corps. I don't have this solidified in my mind, but I'll let you know when a decision has been reached.

Hope to see you back tomorrow!


  1. What makes you want to change the name? Just new town/new name?

    I'm very glad your numbers are better!!!

  2. I'm thinking new town, new name, but I'm also thinking of learning more toward a Christian bent than I have in the past.
