I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, just as I did. We visited with everyone and had a great time. From playing the Wii to filling our tummies with as much BBQ (vinegar based, not mustard based), stuffing, and sausage-cheese balls as we could handle.
With all of the great food, came lots of wacky bg numbers. So, not only did my numbers decide to be weird just because they could before all the holiday festivities could get here, they act up even more when all the good food is available to be eaten. I normally donâ€™t make a big scene and just eat even if I am high just so no one will judge and ask questions as to why Iâ€™m not eating. But this year was different. I was demined to not let them get too out of control. So, I endured the questions and weird looks when I was sitting off to myself or by my husband and not eating for a few minutes. I did go ahead and bolus for at least 60g of carbs on the way to some peopleâ€™s houses, which made it easier, but I didnâ€™t at his familyâ€™s gathering (theyâ€™re unpredictable with when the food will be ready). All in all, I think my highest was around 270-ish, and that was at that particular dinner. Otherwise, I did pretty good, staying under 200 for my peaks and around 130 otherwise.
Of course, Christmas day, we got a full day of the good ole â€œsouthern snowâ€ as we call itâ€¦ LOTS and LOTS of rain! If we ever get snow, itâ€™s usually not even an inch, and is gone by the time the sun is up long enough to shine on it and melt it. We had so much rain, that it started puddling up to the door at my husbandâ€™s familyâ€™s â€œGathering Buildingâ€. (It used to be the family businessâ€™ office, but itâ€™s now sort of a gathering hall for family events.) Now, granted, this is a building that is built on a concrete slab, but it is somewhat raised. We had to use another exit door to get out because the door thatâ€™s usually used had water right in front of it. My sister in law even made the comment â€œSanta brought us a pond for Christmas!â€, and he did! I have never worn rain boots, but I would have LOVED to have had some that day!
So, since we couldn’t play outside, we stayed inside and played “laser mouse” with the cats. I promise, that is the best $2 I have ever spent! Here’s a couple of quick videos of them:
I will try to get back into my routine of blogging once a week when the holidays are past. Until then, happy holidays!
