 International Elephant Day Saturday 12th August

They’re intelligent. They’re family-oriented. They have great memories. They are capable of feeling a wide range of deep emotions, from intense grief to joy bordering on elation, as well as empathy and stunning self-awareness. They create complex, supportive societies much like our own. Taking into consideration all of that and much, much more, what’s not to love about elephants? Still, countless elephants are brutally killed every year for their ivory by greedy poachers who then leave their carcasses to rot in the sun. As Graydon Carter, Editor of Vanity Fair, put it:

A 64 (3.55) for me today.  I decided that my Novolog insulin pen was bad, so I threw it out and started using a new pen, and it appears that I was right, hence the 64 reading today.

Silly thought.

136 (7.6) at 2:30 AM. Took a one unit correction.

120 (6.7) at 4:10 AM. There's still probably half a unit of insulin or more still on board. A bolus of 8 units lasts about six hours for me, but I'll have to admit I really have little idea how long a single unit is still showing activity. Some day I'll have to go without eating long enough to test it. (But I really hate to go without eating.) ;)

95 this morning.  Super busy weekend and need to get some good sleep and outdoor time. Car shopping and an incident at work have me bit stressed.  Hope everyone is well.

Woke up at 3, feeling like I needed to :puke: so I tested, saw my huge puffy eyes almost closed shut and then napped on the couch for 3 hours. 

128 this morning. Yeah, I really am allergic to carbs, between the 2 hot dog rolls, small amount of Fritos and the chunk of blackberry cobbler hahahahaha 

 

Crapola, I am NOT doing that again for a very long time! Good news is that hubby had 2 hamburger patties with no buns. No cobbler either. LOL

87 when I finally dragged my rear out of bed at 9:30 this morning.  It felt good to just lay there for a while and feel nicely lazy.  :)

Yesterday afternoon was cool with intermittent light showers so I snuck out early from work and rode my bike 50K.  Had a sensible dinner and tested at 80 before bed.  Hoping against hope this morning...........................80.  Woot! Woot!
