So now the weekend plans were no longer to make the trip to PA to take the pictures. When upset, I tend to get really busy and do anything that is labor intensive. I have hedges that spread across my front yard and needed to be trimmed and cleaned up. Great project as far as being labor intensive! I set out to do this, in direct sunlight, high humidity, temperature around 85 degrees and a whole lot of hurt to take out on the unsuspecting hedges. It took me over four hours, a bucket load of sweat and a roll of paper towels (for sopping off sweat) to feel like I had exhausted the anger and hurt.
What I didn't think about was what the "labor intensive" work would do to my blood sugar! It was ugly!!!! Hence..."Lows kicking my ass" to the tune of a very stubborn reading of 52. I couldn't get the number up from there for quite some time. Felt like a sopping wet, frustrated, exhausted, stumbling, shaking pile of crap-o-la.
So, feeling sorry for myself this weekend was not how I wanted to spend it, but I do have a very well groomed yard complete with beautiful manicured hedges. The pictures will be treasured when I look back at them, someone else's baby will get to wear the things I crocheted when she gives them away, and I will remember this weekend's mantra....When life kicks me in the ass....diabetes is right there to join in on the ass kicking!!!!
