A 90 (5.0) this morning when I got up. Realized it was 2 AM and went back to bed. 4 1/2 hours later, I get back up, one pound lighter, a 94 (5.2)

Even checked ketones at 2 AM, was exhaling into the sensor when i saw the click. One red blink then, up to two now.

Glad I didn't start the coffee pot, I would have been committed to staying up.

30F, overcast, 0% chance of rain, high predicted of 50F. Got a cough, 40 lbs. of cracked pecans to shell, 500 grams of vitamin C to put in capsules. Bowl games start at 1 PM. Think I'll put a bag of wood pellets in the pellet stove and be an insider today.

Yesterday I woke up with 2,2 but didnt feel anything. Had a hypo in the afternoon (2,7) which I felt a bit.
Today I woke up after sleeping for 11 hours with a 4,1.
I guess I`m a bit stressed and thats make my BG dance a little. My youngest sister has moved in with us in hope that we can help. She is addicted to alcohol and medication and has to change her life drastical to get back on her feet.

5.4 (97)... now, feeling mostly tired, wish I could stay home a couple more days. On the plus side, between Christmas and New Years, things are usually pretty slow at work.

111 (6.2) this morning. I ran higher than normal ( if there is such a thing ) for me all day yesterday so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
Now they say we have a 50% chance of snow Tuesday evening and Wednesday. Snow levels down to 1500 Feet which is rare for here. Lowest temperatures of the season also. It's 20F (-6.7C) this morning.
I'm off to get another cortisone injection this morning, this time in my right shoulder. It did seem to help my left shoulder but not as much as I had hoped for. It might just take time and I hope to see improvement.

74 (4.09) this cold breezy morning, 66 (3.65) at bedtime.

11F (-11.7C) (with wind chill it feels like -4F (-20C) right now, 4" of new snow on the ground. It is clear so tonight is going to be cold. -11F (-23.9C) predicted for tonight. I need to go to the grocery store, but after shoveling the porch and in front of the garage I am wiped out! Still not 100% and this cold isn't helping.

@Tamagno, they kept saying Gracepoint was going to go off on its own course, but it never did. Broadchurch was much better.

Today is Dexter marathoning. I am really trying to force myself to go to the store first though today....

94 / 5.2

Wally, for some odd reason I find your quote by Dr Marcia Agnell extremely satisfying. This concerns me as I feel the quote should frighten me.

A 6.0 (been up at 6 or higher this past week so I may be coming down with a cold but so far no symptoms). I ate LC at Xmas so it isn't my diet even though it is still a bit too high in protein).

@grammaB - I used to follow Dexter during its first three seasons but stopped once my workload became too demanding. I quite like the show. Now I have holidays but I've started marathon sessions of some old shows (Emergency!, CHIPS, Quincy, M.E., The Rockford Files, Columbo, Happy Days, and newer shows like The Walking Dead, Marvel: Agents of Shield, The Flash, Arrow, Terra Nova and The Big Bang Theory. I tried watching Orange is the new Black but found it completely absurd. It was like they designed the show around showing as much sex as they could get away with (not to mention that, as a comedy, it wasn't even remotely funny!). I also tried Game of Thrones but couldn't even get through 10 minutes of that trash!

I just finished watching all 15 years of E.R. episodes, and I wish I'd noted when I actually began the marathon - it took me for-freakin-ever! I never realized how many well-known actors made appearances on that show, and how many actually got their start or a major career boost from it. G. Clooney wasn't the only one. I think I was too busy during its heyday to be watching every week - I really don't remember watching much at all, so I really enjoyed the archives.

I've taken advantage of these archive sites a lot the last coupla years . . . there's a good Aussie show named A Country Practice which ran for maybe 12 years, and last year I watched all of those old episodes. Then I had to hunt up West Wing and watch all of that over again. It's all pretty cool!

And I will never understand all the fuss about Downton Abbey and the time lapse between programming in UK and later in the US. All of the episodes are at these other sites - once they've aired in the UK, they're available. And yet I see all the moaning/groaning about having to wait on PBS over here. Well I didn't wait - I've seen all five seasons and the Christmas Special last week too!

222 this morning - an interesting number all the way around...

Well, we've been mining Netflix TV shows for awhile now. If you get off the beaten path there are some pretty interesting ones if you can handle some unusual languages and dialects. One from Belgium called Salamander is pretty good, but in the peculiar pan-European language that's now preferred in that country. Just started one from New Zealand that's very odd about neo-Norse gods. They are evidently not at all shy about sex there...

Back to winter here. It's only 27 this morning. Good grief!
