This n That

First of all, Happy Birthday to my sweet Bubba-looey.  Today he turns 8, and he's telling everyone.  If you listen, I'm sure he will tell you too.  Because of his seizure disorder, he was eligible for a wish from Make A Wish.  It has taken him 18 months to decide what he wanted.  First, he told them he wanted to go to Grammy's or to Giant Eagle.  They tried to explain what this "wish" was,  then he said he wanted to go to McDonald's and eat inside.  "Nope, not a wish".  So it was put on the back burner until he could grasp the whole concept.  One Sunday in early June, he and Mary were sitting at one of Jimmy's softball games, and Bubba complained that he was really hot.  He wished that he could go swimming, and then said to Mary,  "I wish we had our own pool so we could swim anytime."  Suddenly a light bulb came on, and Bubba said, "Mom is that a real wish".  Mary teared up, and told Bubba that yes it was a real wish.  And so the steps were put in motion for Bubba to have his Make A Wish pool.  It was more of a hassle than Mary expected, but Bubba is so happy, and on Friday, Make A Wish will come to the house and throw a party for Bubba's friends and family to celebrate his wish.

I had planned to do so much this weekend.  But, yesterday my blood sugar was running really low for me.  Seemed like I had to eat every two hours just to keep it above 85.  I have no idea what caused it, but will cut my Victoza dosage back for the next few days to see what happens.  It's back to normal today, but I'm left with a headache.  I do have 30 neck coolers ready to iron and fill.  My plans are to iron all 30 today and then finish them 10 at a time.  We are only 32 days away from our Disney trip, and I need to finish these neck coolers.  So, for the time being, the sewing room organization has been put on hold.  I continue to plan and purchase what I think will help out with the room-saving organizing.

I need groceries, but still feel pretty weak, so my wonderful hubby is going to take the list and head to the store.  I will keep my I Phone at the ready, and he calls me with any questions.  Geez, I love this guy.  He's probably my greatest blessing, and I thank God for him each and every day.  Talk to you next week.

What a GREAT wish your little guy made. Please tell him Happy Birthday for me and to enjoy his new pool. Take care of yourself with that blood sugar, too.
