Full moon

I always think of nights with a full moon as craziness night. It started a decade ago when I worked in the ER as an EMT. All medical personnel know that full moon nights mean the weirdos are falling from the trees. We have some weirdoness in our own house tonight......

The kids have found some unusual energy. They are giggling non-stop about the silliest things. A HUGE spider found its way into our kitchen, even the dog ran away from the hairy scary sight! Day 3 of rain in the Desert. It even HAILED today while I was at work. Poor Josh just completed a typical 14 hour day, "the worst day of his life" even. Nothing seemed to work right for him today he says. Being a truck driver isn't as easy as it seems. Of course, that's because he also unloads a 50ft truck once arriving to his destinations. Poor guy. He works such long days and always seems to have issues at every stop. The full moon was apparent for him too today I guess.

I have my own craziness going on in a much different way. CRAZY because I have small ketones for the first time ever. I have never had ketones in 3 years of living with Diabetes. Not even at diagnosis with an award winning 13% A1c! My blood sugar was 52at 3pm today. I guess I over did the carb correction as I shoveled anything I could find into my mouth. I was STARVING. I thought I bolused fairly close for the extra carbs. 246 later, I corrected. Did some laundry, found yet another SPIDER! They must not like the rain outside! After another heart attack from the unwelcomed visitor I decided to take a quick 10min nap before leaving for Volleyball practice. I woke up so thirsty I could swear I was in the thousands. 298. Wow, I haven't seen a number that high in years. No dinner for me! Sight change later, I think I could drink the ocean and my headache is about to make me puke. ICK. I wonder if I rebounded? I've never had that happen to me before, but, unfortunately I have seen it often enough in Maddison to know it really does happen. I dont know. Maybe I'm getting sick. Maybe I just ate a bazillion carbs more than I thought during my low binge. Maddison just checked in at exactly 298 like me! WEIRD! I can't think of any reason Maddison would be 298 right now, well, except for the fact that movies after school is alot different than her running wild in the streets :) I think I see a long night ahead. Gotta love a full moon I guess.

Damn spiders! I tell you - they do crazy things to our blood sugars!

"Uh, no, I just don't like what they do to my blood sugars..."
