I've made it through the first week of the new year, and nothing really interesting has happened. I do love quiet weeks. I'm down to unpacking the little things. I have one display cabinet up. Now I need to figure out where to put the second one. I think know where the ones with the doors are. Becky is going to look. I sure hope she finds them. I looked up what it would cost to replace them and was stunned. Most were over $200.00. I will have to check the local thrift stores to see what they have. I love my minis and want them displayed.

I have a Dr. appointment Tuesday, to go over my meds and get some bloodwork done.  I'll update if there is anything important. I am also getting very annoyed with my medical insurance company. They are invasive. I have to go to a meeting to discuss my diabetes, as if I didn't know how to deal with it. I spent over half an hour on the phone with them going over my medications and other health concerns. Diabetes runs in my family. I've lived around them all my life and I know how to take care of myself. My aunt lost both her legs because she didn't care for her feet properly. I know how to take care of my feet. Grrrrrrr... They are going to get told that I've had enough of their butting into my life. If I need their help I will ask for it, otherwise leave me alone. The only reason I agreed to go to this meeting, is so they can see for themselves that I am not some senile old woman. I hate it when someone, who doesn't know me, tells me how to live my life.

One last thing. I am going to be closing my stock account GrannyStock this week. I just do not have the time to deal with two accounts.

Yeah, I know how it is to deal with overly concerned people when it comes to my diabetes... I had a meeting with my doc today and the welfare service yesterday... Gaaaah!!! Even it's noted in my journal that I'm an experienced patient, I even know more than my doc about the illness... But still I'm getting stupid questions and people get fussed if they see me eat a small piece of chocolate...

I've a quiet week too, at my parent's place, but I'm going home tomorrow.. Hope your doctor visit and the meeting is going well, dear. :love:

Dr. visit welt well. Saw the head of the clinic this time. He listened well and we solved my little problems. I like it when that happens.

I'll deal with the insurance company. They make such a bid deal out od diabetes. Those of us who live with it know when things are going wrong. I won't end up like my aunt or my father. He would not stop drinking. He died very young because of it. I just hate being treated lke a little old lady.

I have to say, I also love quiet weeks. Though it seems I very rarely have one. I will keep you in my prayers for the Doctor appointment. I hate dealing with Insurance also. Hang in there. 8-)
