Is Anybody Still Out There??

It's been a while, I know. It's just that I don't feel like I have much worth writing about. And I have been looking at some of your blogs and know I have missed so much. It's hard to think about trying to catch up. I probably won't catch up, to tell you the truth.

My father had a mild heart attack on April 1st. There was little to no damage to his heart. We are very grateful for that. He did have to have three stints put in and is now doing very well.

I've lost a total of 18 pounds and dropped a size or two since I've started having to watch what I eat. I did blood work last week and those numbers were good too. The diabetes is now in what is considered the "well-managed" category. With a little more effort and attention, I can possibly get my numbers down to where it is considered in remission. I have not yet started an exercise program. That would probably jump start things a little more. I do walk nearly every day across campus to get the mail and run other errands, so I am not sitting all day long! I need to get out and buy myself some new pants at least. Mine are starting to get pretty droopy!

There are some serious budget cuts coming at work but I think my job is still fairly safe. Our department is lucky in that we have grant money that can't be cut.

I have not done any photography lately, or worked on any of my artsy-fartsy things. I don't know what's up with that.


  1. Still here. Still reading.
    I'm glad your dad didn't have any heart damage.
    Good for you for working hard to get your diabetes under control.
    I hope you have a good day.

  2. Hey Annie,
    That is good about your dad's heart not sustaining damage. Must be quite a relief.
    Congrats on the diabetes management. Sounds like your job keeps you on your feet. Some built in exercise. Woo hoo.
    It's good to hear from you.


  3. Hooray for droopy pants!! You didn't tell me you lost all that weight! You go girlie!
    Has Deedle Dad gone back to work yet? Glad to hear he's doing well!

  4. Will you add me on facebook?

    There is a profile badge on my blog.

    Hope your dad is ok.

  5. So good just to find you back with us and then to get a report of so much going on in your life...God is doing great things with you, it seems to me. Glad your dad is doing well. Thirty days of school left and I am looking forward to the summer break. This year has been a bit of a trudge in that area; but, at the same time, He keeps meeting me at the well with the wonder of His grace. You are a great lady, ma'am, and it doesn't take more than a few words of your grace to warm us, to feed us in the journey we all travel. Peace...

  6. Just dropped by to say hi! I hope your dad is still doing well.

  7. I love you, but I am behind on reading as you are on writing. Keep on walking.

  8. Glad to hear your dad has done ok. And 18 pounds? BEFORE the exercise program? You're doing great!!!!

    I know the feeling with the writing - I'm feeling the same way. I've got things to write about, but just no inspiration to get me started. Oh well, we'll get there eventually!

  9. Hooray for the diabetes management and droopy pants!
    As for the blogosphere, isn't it wonderful how it's here waiting whenever we're ready to write?


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
