Wow, I can't believe it's been nearly TWO years since I last wrote in my blog. Sheesh. So much has happened. Shortly after my last entry my mother got sick, colon cancer, and I looked after her and my father. They moved into the city in an apartment to be closer to the hospital and so it would be easier for me to look after them. She passed away August 2009 and I miss her everyday. My father sold the house and is now living in a home about 30 minutes from me, he's happy there and I'm happy he's there.
My oldest daughter finished grad school and moved back to this city, lived with her boyfriend (a real loser), lived with us for a while and then moved out with a friend. My youngest is nearly finished school! Hurray! As soon as she graduates she and her boyfriend will be moving halfway across the country. I'll be sorry to see them go but there will be many better opportunities for them in their fields up there. The house is empty now except for hubby, myself and our dog. We do see lots of friends and family especially on the weekends. I can't believe how close hubby's retirement is! October 2012! He only has 3 more Arctic trips left. It's pretty good when you can count your working time left in shifts. He works 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off so that makes it seem so very close. We've decided to sell this house in the city and move into our other house in the country. I love it there from spring to fall but not so much in the winter. As soon as he retires we plan to spend the winter traveling.
I've pretty well been sticking with low carbing, but have fallen off the wagon too many times to count. I've been successful for the most part in controlling blood sugar levels with diet. Hurray! Still not back on the meds! My recipe collection has expanded greatly! I only cook low carb now, anyone who doesn't like it can eat somewhere else. So there!
