Weekend Ramblings…

I survived and actually enjoyed my three days at Camp Medeba with Zachary and his class!  I will blog about that later this week.  I am here at Sanj’s office waiting for the bank to open and get a few errands done before picking up Sammy later this morning.

It was a good weekend.  I love long weekends.  I love being with my family and just hanging out.  We went to the car show in TO. Later we ate at this Indian restaurant in Scarborough, where I had the biggest dosa ever!  It’s probably our new favorite Indian restaurant.   We were all exhausted from a full day.  Sunday I took Josh to see the Lego Movie, which we both didn’t get.  I think you either love or hate this movie.  Monday was vegging with the boys and we went to the inlaws for a bit and finished our long weekend with dinner at Jack Astors.


Today was brutal.  Tears and claims of hating school from my youngest.  I hate that.  I breaks my heart to forcefully send him off.  I’m pretty sure once he gets there he’s happy enough to be with his friends but boy, if Josh had a choice, he’d be with me all day.

I’ve been a type 2 diabetic for a while now. I’ve been on meds to help control my sugars.  Recently my girlfriend told me about Victoza, a drug for diabetics which seems to have had great results.  I got excited until I hear… it’s a shot.  There’s always a catch with things that seems too good!!!  I am the world’s biggest chicken when it comes to shots.  Any kind of shots.  I don’t cry now… lol but believe me, if it wouldn’t make me look like an idiot… I  would likely love to give in to tears.  Sigh.  Here’s the thing, the shot is in my tummy.  That just seems crazy!  Doesn’t it?  I’ve seen my mom give herself insulin and it looks easy but… she’s a nurse.

I went to the doc made the decision to try this new drug and my doc probably saw my hesitation  suggested that I do the first one then and there. Yikes!!!  Here’s the thing, while this may seem like such a little thing… it was huge for me.  And… guess what, I did it!  It does pinch ( I hate when people say it doesn’t hurt- liar) but it’s doable.  So… I’m proud of myself.

So on to my tackle my next mountain- the mess at my house!

Hope you had a great weekend and here’s to a great short week!!!
