Oh my....this is embarressing. I have been so lax about posting to this blog. Which means I am really, really boring. At least to myself. And probably some other people. Life has been happening at my home, just the usual school, homework, etc.
One piece of good news....the Januvia is working great! I am logging my blood sugars on http://www.sugarstats.com/ and the 30 day average is in the 120's. This is fabulous news. I think I finally found the right combination of medication to keep my blood sugars in line. I do keep thinking to myself, "Okay, now I'm cured! I can go off of all the medications now!" I keep having to remind myself that it does not work that way.
Ben made honor roll this nine weeks! All B's, and I am so proud! He had a nightmare situation last year in 5th grade with math, but thankfully this year seems better. New school, more responsibility, but he takes it all in stride.
However.....I'm not ready for this, but my dear, sweet child is turning into a hormonally imbalanced, snotty, cantankerous beast of a preteen at least 80 percent of the time. I'm told by my friends who have 11-year-old boys that this is normal, which makes me feel somewhat better, but GOOD GRIEF, I'm shocked at his attitude most of the time. I think God is up there laughing at me, and this is just payback for all the grief I gave my parents. The other day I asked him a question, he mumbled the answer, I nicely told him I could not hear him, to which he replied, "Well, YOU need to listen better then!" Excuse me???? Needless to say, I adjusted his attitude and he sulked off. I'm thinking this is going to last for awhile.
Oh yeah! Today I got an email from http://www.topmomma.com/ telling me I am on the home page of their site. I am not sure exactly what this entails, but if people click on my blog from that site, I get to stay on the front page longer, thus get more blog traffic. Pretty cool, huh?
