A quick one girls. I've had such a busy, busy day. I think I finally got everything done and I'm headed to bed. We are getting up early and hoping to get out of here by 7 in the morning. So I am just am flying by to say hello and I will try to check in from time to time when I can. Have a great weekend.

Before I had my daughter I had quite the Aerogarden going in my house - I loved growing my own herbs! I took it down after she was born because I didn't have as much time to play with it and they were constantly bolting. Now I just have chives, rosemary and basil growing in my backyard.

Shannon, my belly picture was taken in my undies, so I WON'T be posting it. LOL My belly looks a lot worse than yours because of my surgeries.

dgramie, I too had a scare with a fibroid. After they saw it, they just told me to come back for another mammogram in 6 months. So after 6 months of worrying, scared to death, they told me it hadn't changed, but I should have a biopsy anyway. I don't know why they didn't just send me for the biopsy in the first place, but that might have had something to do with insurance. When I finally went for the biopsy, the surgeon didn't think I needed it because there was no change, but I told him to do it anyway. He did, it was a fibroid.

Kris, I don't know if I have room to grow herbs, unless I put the pots out on the deck. My son grows a few because he makes home made salsa and needs them for that.

Bonnie, they have some new things out that you can use for sleep apnea instead of wearing the mask. Maybe he can do one of those.

Trish, I know you left already, but I hope you have a good trip.

Rennie, Get thine arse back here!!

I had a fibroadenoma removed many years ago - it was very quick, not bad at all. I have breast cancer in my family too, it's scary. I had my baseline mammogram early at 35 and just had my second one right before I turned 41. I got a letter that my breasts are "dense"....hard to imagine since they resemble deflated balloons, lol!

Kris, it's a miniature hydroponic garden....super fun! Here is a link so you can see examples
http://www.aerogarden.com/?cid=ppc_g...Fc9lOgodiVQAXg

If you click on seed kits then choose 6/7 pod you will see the growing options of my old Aerogarden. Looking at it, I'm now sad I got rid of it, lol!

I ate to much yesterday and my fbs was 97 this morning. I am totally confused. It seems like if I eat more my numbers are lower. If I eat right on track my numbers are higher.
I will be calling the dr on Monday to set up my lumpectomy and discuss my bs numbers.

dgramie, we have often had discussions about why BS does what it does. Many times it doesn't make sense. Sometimes it has to do with what and when you eat, especially when you are pre-diabetic.

Dgramie and Shannon Yey on the weight loss.

Kris I told DH that when I get back home I plan to buy live plants and put around the house. I saw on some tv show how NASA learned that plants pull the poisons out of the carpet, drapes etc when they wanted clean air for the astronauts. Your herb garden makes me want to try that too. I've never tried an herb garden. How do you use your Stevia? Do just put a leaf in what you drink?

We are at DH sons and enjoying our time here. My eating hasn't been too bad so far. My FBS yesterday was 129 and today was 134 which was good considering the carbs I had yesterday. I've been pretty good today. DH son made steaks, grilled romaine lettuce and baked potatoes for dinner. I had an Atkins shake this morning and have one in the fridge for later. DDIL and DGD and I went to an outlet mall and did lots of walking today and I only had to sit for a little bit to get my hip to stop hurting. Then was able to walk again with no problem. I hope that will help with my FBS tomorrow and then when we get to Missouri I think I'll have no problem walking around museum there. Tomorrow DH, son and grandchildren are going to a game in Indianapolis and DDIL and I are going out to eat for salad. So I think I will be okay with my eating while here.

Carol Sue, Bonnie, Rennie and others

Catch y'all again when I can.

I must confess, I have used every herb but the stevia. I need to google to make sure I can just eat it.

Kris I'm curious too, my stevia is liquid so no clue what I'd do with a leaf!

Trish glad you got to your family's safely, have fun!!

Well, I had a bad crash into a package of Nutter Butters today, mouth first. I think henceforth they will be banned from the house. My daughter loves them but everytime I buy them for her I end up bingeing on them. Hubby got off ok on his work trip to Atlanta today. He took his new truck :-) i've been driving that land boat all week learning to maneuver it. Guess I'll miss it. He will be at a training class all week so I'm alone with the little terror til Saturday night. The battle of the wills is at an all time high right now and this mommy is becoming less and less patient by the hour it seems. I need a timeout. LOL! Our dog, who has congestive heart failure, sounds worse than usual so I guess we will visit the vet tomorrow. I also need to get my blood drawn to monitor my liver for this fungus medicine I'm on. Hopefully we can do those in the morning and go to the pool in the afternoon. I'm working on printing out recipes I want to try. I pin them on pinterest but sometimes dislike trying to cook while reading it on my iPad. I'm making a notebook for myself with the recipes. Hopefully it will help me also with meal planning and shopping. Ok, the terror is finally asleep so I need to do some cleaning and get to bed early, she has a tendency to wake even more when a major change, like daddy leaving, occurs.
