I Have Missed You So...

Happy to be with you!


I am so happy to be writing here again.  I am sorry that I have not written in such a long time.  I will try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Besides writing to you, I have a job.  I am in property management.  For the past 20 years, I have managed a medical building.  Yesterday, the building was sold.  The work it took to put that sale together was amazing.  Don't get me started on lawyers....  I had some really terrific people working with me but it was a lot of work.

Today for the first time in over 20 years, I don't have to worry about the upcoming snow.  It is now someone else's problem.  It is bittersweet.  While I am glad that I won't have to worry about things, I will miss the amazing people that I have met and worked with over that time.  It has been a really great experience.

But the main question is how are we doing in the world of diabetes and our health.

We are a mess.  We have broken most of our rules and have done some backsliding.  I was tired.  I was stressed.  I was working 14 hour days and had no inclination to make dinner.  I could have cared less about what we were having.  Throw in the rest of life where things can go wrong occasionally and it is the recipe here for backsliding to our old ways.

I am an emotional eater.

So, the clouds are beginning to clear and I can see that in a day or so, I will be able to pull it together again.

They make movies about starting over, right?

Silent Sam, while better on some fronts than I was, is right there with me.  Exhaustion and stress just blew us out of the water.  His numbers, while not bad, have not been as good.

So back we go.  Discouraged about our mistakes but we know that we can do better.  Time to get back up.  I don't think we will wait until the new year starts.  I think that we will try and start again this weekend.

Slow and steady wins, right.  Slow really means moves slowly and sometimes backward but then goes forward again.

So, if you have had fits and starts, you are not alone.  If you do more than fits and starts, you are not alone.  We can do this journey together.

After all, we have so much to catch up on. I have missed you.

Thanks for reading.
