Just stuff

First off, I've been meaning to post a HUGE thank you to Nicole for the sweet present I received in the mail. I love it and love you for sending it, my wonderful friend! Sorry I'm so late in posting about it.

Yesterday we had one of those days. You know, scary high numbers that totally came out of left field. They continued through the night and Elise woke up in the upper 300s with 1.3 ketones. I managed to get everything under control by lunch, but man... days like that can really take the wind out of your sails. Especially since things have been so amazing lately.

And I saved the best for last. Our trip to San Francisco is coming up! We leave on Thursday and I am so excited I just may pee myself a little before we leave. I haven't had a vacation since I was 6 months pregnant with Elise. We'll be staying at the house of some friends of ours (who will be away for 4 out of the 6 days we're there... woo-hoo free hotel!), and getting to hang out with some other old friends we haven't seen in awhile (we used to live in SF). The daughter of the people we are staying with is who Elise is named after... and I cannot wait for the two of them to meet. The other Elise is now 8 and I think my Elise will just adore her.

And the best part of all? I get to meet MERI!!! Sweet, wonderful, superstar, the-sister-I-never-had... MERI! I am so excited I just DID pee my pants a little!

So that's my post of "just stuff". If you could, please pray that our trip goes smoothly with no flight issues and especially no BG issues!


  1. I just got back from our trip, and I feel SO out of the loop. I've missed so many posts and I feel awful. :( But I WILL catch up!

    Any-hoo...when are you with me? Tell me the day we can meet for our big lunch...and I am SO there! PF Changs? Cheesecake Factory? I can pick you up if your husband wants to make sure I'm not an axe murderer, or we can meet there.

    EMAIL ME!!!

  2. Have fun, laugh, and enjoy. I will turn Elise over to Jesus and therefore, you will be given rest.

  3. Oh joanne how great that you actually get to meet another blogger and the sister from another mister Meri LOL!!!! I hope you have lots of fun on your trip and so glad you get out of the house for a while .

  4. Lifting you up in prayer today and everyday!

    Even though the rest of us are totally jealous that you get to hang with Meri. Give her and those boys a big hug from the Houston family.

  5. your very welcome for the gift and I hope that you have an amazing and safe trip! I'm sooo jealous you are getting to meet everyone! :(

  6. I am super jealous of you going to San Fran AND meeting Meri! Have a great trip - I hope you enjoy it and it goes smoothly! Sorry to hear about the high bg- good days never last forever do they? Hope little Elise is doing better today!

  7. Have fun in San Fran. I hope you get a seat near the restroom! :-P
