It's the Weekend

Whew......made it through this week! Jeff has started his new job....working 8-5 Monday through Friday which is a huge change for us. In our 12 years of marriage he has never once had a Monday through Friday job! Do I miss the restaurant business??? NOPE! Not one bit! :)

I've also had a change in my routine as well. I'm now watching 2 sweet little ones....a little girl (age 2 1/2) and her baby brother (4 months) during the week. It's been a welcome change for me...I didn't realize just how much I missed having a baby around!!! So, I'm getting my baby fix and Jada has a playmate during the day while everyone else is at school!

On the D-front, things are just so-so. This last week hasn't been as frustrating as the week before, but she is consistently high- like really high- at her midnight check- which is what we were trying to keep from happening. I really wish we would just go back to how we were doing things, and we might. Jada has a well child check in two weeks and we'll be discussing that!

So, talking about those high numbers- last night was the worst she's had since I don't know when! I checked her at 11:30 and she was in the mid-200's. I decided to go to bed and then set my alarm for 2:00 am. I woke up at 1:30 to Jada at my bedside telling me that she's thirsty. So, we check---- 550!!! What???? I'm not sure what happened. We had pizza for dinner--so that may have done it. She's not had a problem with pizza in the past, but maybe it's something I need to be more careful of in the future. So, I gave her a correction and sent her back to bed. She woke up at 70...but has been tired and crabby all day. have I. ;)

In other news, the last few days we've had spectacular weather for October in Alaska. Nearly 60 degrees today...not too shabby for just being about 180 miles south of the Arctic Circle! We'll take it...because once it's's gone until the end of April.

Amy, you have surely been through it. I'm praying that Jada's numbers come in line with a healthly numbers. When they are that little it's so hard to figure out what combination works and when. It will work out though. Hang in there.

Maybe there's something in the air... we're dealing with high overnight numbers too.

Btw, we had dinner with Shawn B. and his family the other night. He says hi!

Syd has had a few highs as well. Although when we eat pizza we always struggle! It is a difficult food for Syd and diabetes. I have found if we get a thin crust it isn't nearly so hard though. Less fatty carbs. I hope that things smooth out soon! I hate weeks like those. Makes it so rough!

So happy to hear the new job is going well...and YIPPEE about your baby fix + a playmate. THAT ROCKS!

Prayers for better numbers...we all have these peaks and valleys. It'll get back on track.

That's awesome.. I"m glad things are finally coming together on the job front for Jeff. I know he is glad to get to spend time with you and the kiddos!

And I bet you are happy to have little ones around! That's super! Lucky kids!

And J's numbers.. they will come around..

Crazy numbers, the story of our lives...'m sorry,I hope you figure it out soon!

Watching little munchkins is so fun! (I did it in my "younger" years,) But I know 4 month olds can be a challange because sometimes all they really want is their mommmy. I can imagine your exhausted by the end of the day! And then long nights with Jada too...In my book, you're a rock star.
