SOME RED, SOME WHITE...
AND I'M NOT BLUE! Nope...not feeling blue today. But, I am having difficulty adjusting to my new medication for my "missing" thyroid gland. It is playing havoc with my blood sugar levels so I am constantly checking them to make sure they are not going too high. Yesterday, it was awful. I have never been so tired in my entire life I don't think. And, it was mostly attributed to high blood sugar levels. This diabetes is for the birds. Even birds would be mad because they had to eat more protein and less grains. At least strawberries have a lot of fiber!! That is a GOOD thing.
So, I stocked up on blueberries, strawberries, apricots, pluots, peaches, and nectarines. I will be trying to eat more fruit and vegetables instead of sugary treats that I crave. Thank goodness for all the summer fruit.
I'm also getting excited because we are thinking about getting a new dog! We might go and look at him next Wednesday and if his owners approve, we just might be bringing home a 14-month old cream colored Standard poodle. They gave him a crazy name though: Scruffy. Now, how can a dog hold his head up high and not have low self-esteem with a name like Scruffy? Already, when you say it, it conjures up thoughts about his hair being messy or dirty or unkempt. Does anyone have any tips for changing a dog's name? Can it be done easily so that he will accept the new name or is it too late? And, are there any suggestions for the new name? I'm thinking maybe Buffy or Buddy because it sounds similar to Scruffy but not so sure. I like the idea of him being our "traveling Buddy", our "best Buddy", our "walking Buddy". Even our "Buddy Boy"!
Have a safe 4th of July out there. Let's all pray that there are no fires started due to carelessness. And, let's all remember what we're celebrating in this Land of the Free.
