It’s done!

My computer has been restored. Thank goodness!

I was able to save almost everything. I never did figure out how to bring back my list of bookmarks or how they disappeared.

Now I’m going to bed. I have 9 hours of driving to do tomorrow… taking the older 2 kids to church camp 4 1/2 hours away.

synchronize… no, restore!

Back in March I downloaded a ticker that shows how long it is until the release of the new Harry Potter movie & book this summer. I put it here on my blog and also on my desktop. I later removed it from my desktop because it seemed slow or not synchronized.. or something.

For the past week or so, my computer has been trying to synchronize it for offline viewing. The only problem is that I deleted it using the add or remove programs fuction of my computer. It’s not there, yet keeps trying to fix it.

It’s making my computer run really slowly & is on my nerves.

I’ve spent the past couple of hours burning back up disks. I’m going to restore my computer to the original factory settings & start over. I tried to just restore it to a set point in time, but the computer settings will only let me go back 24 hours, so that’s no good.

unbelievable and sad

This article is so sad. I guess the general public is really not aware of signs & symptoms of diabetes.

I know I was not aware before it effected my family. I guess most people tend to be that way.

You’d think that companies dealing with the public would make sure their employees knew to look for other causes before jumping to the conclusion that a passenger is drunk, to at least consider that it could be a medical problem before putting a man off the train in the middle of a forest.

DD11 has an id card that states,

“I have diabetes.
If my behavior is peculiar (appear intoxicated)
or I am unconscious, it may be a reaction to the
insulin. I am not intoxicated.
Call 911 for assistance.”

It goes on to list other information and has spaces for her doctor’s emergency phone number and my phone number.

I wonder if the Amtrack passenger had an id card like this. I wonder if anyone bothered to check.

bookmarks??

My bookmarks are gone (Firefox Browser). I cannot find a way to restore them. Do you know a way to bring them back?

getting DD11 from diabetes camp

I hugged DD11 for the longest time when I saw her!

I went into the cabin & couldn’t find her. I saw her bags all packed up by her bed, but she was not there. Her counselor had to go get her. She was in the bathroom “doing” her hair. When I hugged her, we both had tears rolling down our faces.

On the last night of camp, she was awarded the Code of Life award, the highest honor bestowed at the camp. One child from each cabin gets the award during each session. Her cabin mates & counselors voted on things like integrity, spirit, sense of humor, leadership, attitude, friendship, etc. She got to sign her name on a piece of paper & then have it burned into the Code of Life wall in the lodge. She was so cute showing me.

When we got home, she was very happy, dancing around & singing karaoke with DD13 & two of their cousins (ages 13 & 9), and telling stories. She’s tan, tired & happy and full of knowledge & stories.

I’m so glad she’s home. I could hardly sleep Friday night with the anticipation.

We’re leaving today for a week in Branson. I’m looking forward to having a relaxing time with my kiddos plus one niece, hanging out by the pool & hunting around in antique shops.

it’s getting better…

I’m still tired, but the stresses are gradually being marked off my list.

I bought a car today.

3 days down & only one more to go this week with the 9 hour days.

Less than 36 hours until I get to hug DD11 again.

All that’s left is the hysterectomy – and that’s not going to be done until July 26.. so I’ll just try to not think about it too much.

diabetes camp

I’m going to pick up DD11 from diabetes camp on Friday morning. It’s finally almost here. These past weeks have seemed to take months!

The camp is between Sherman, TX and Gainesville, TX, so I’m hoping that the road conditions are not too bad by the time I roll through. Also, the camp is uphill a bit by a lake. The lake has risen significantly. It was already muddy there. I’ll be sure to not drive on any dirt/mud roads. Don’t want to have to be pulled out of the mud like before.

I’m just exhaustinated today.

Yes, I know it’s not a real word – it’s Galinda-fied!
See the post below about Wicked.

Several things could have caused this exhaustination…

**Could be that I worked an extra hour so I won’t have to use 8 hours of PTO when I go pick up DD11 from diabetes camp on Friday. For some reason, that extra hour at work wipes me out every time. I’m working 9 hour days this week and will only take 4 hours of PTO for my day off on Friday. I like that I’m able to save the PTO hours, but in the midst of it, it sure is tiring.

**Could be that I worried all day about DD11 at diabetes camp – since they were in the midst of a huge storm system that brought enough flooding to shut down I-35, severe thunderstorms & the threat of tornadoes.

**Could be that I HATE shopping for cars and getting mine cleaned up & ready to trade-in.

**Could be that the words hysterectomy, biopsy and anesthesia have me a bit stressed out. ACK!

It’s most likely a combination of all of the above.
So, I’m going to bed early tonight.

Sweet dreams, cyberworld.

You’re all…. Galinda-fied!

Last night, Mom, Chrissie, Shannon & I saw Wicked. It was amazing.
I wasn’t sure how I’d like it, since I knew the musical was changed up a bit from the book and I really liked the book.

The actors were incredible and had such strong voices. The stage, props, costumes, orchestra – all of it. Just wonderful.

If you get a chance, it’s definitely a great show to see!

the Carnival Queen

I got an email from DD11 today from diabetes camp.

Here’s what part of it said:

The week is going really well…. Today we all voted and I am Carnival Queen for my cabin and I don’t know about the whole camp.

I cannot wait to hear what all being the Carnival Queen entails. It sounds like other cabins also have Carnival Queens and Kings. Should make for some fun stories. 🙂
