Well it’s been a year and 5 months since I was diagnosed at being diabetic and that is also how long I’ve had my old meter.  I figured it was time to change that meter and get a new one, so yesterday we went to Walmart and picked out the new meter.  I went with a One Touch ultra mini in PINK 🙂 lol.

I’m guessing you’ll have to use the meter a few times before it has finally settled down to give better numbers :).  I’m not to worried as long as the number doesn’t go over 140, that’s when I frown at myself and try to figure out what the heck I’d eaten to have blood sugar number that high after I’ve had my shot and have taken my pills for the night and have slept 8 or more hours.

Also we took my sister shopping with us yesterday cause she wanted to get a few things and return something that wasn’t the correct size.  She seen a dress that she liked, but she’s the type that picks over pricing cause of the amount she wants to spend.  I and my fiancee went ahead and bought the dress for her.  She appreciates the thoughts of getting her a dress, and I figured damn it she needs something pretty that would make her feel pretty when she needed to.  The colors in the dress go beautifully with her skin and hair and some people with that hair color and skin just can’t carry those colors well.  Well she can :).

Sis did tell me she tried it on and her husband and son both agree that she was pretty in it.  I know she smiled and I hope she felt really good in it and that’s what I wanted her to feel like.  The material is soft enough to not irritate her sensitive skin when it’s one of those days that having clothes on won’t irritate or hurt.
