I think it is because my stress level is so much better, but I've been getting more than 6 hours a sleep and often more than 7.5 -- that's one thing nice about the Microsoft Band, when I remember to... Continue reading

I have been doing Yoga since we got back from the cruise and of course, Dulce has been accompanying me. We had some issues, other participants didn’t realize that the heat wasn’t harmful. Even had to get a letter from... Continue reading

Not only does Express Script cover Enlight sensors at $40.00 a month, but they cover them at $80 per 90 day supply. Doctor’s office has the paperwork. Medtronics has the out of pocket sensors, as per UPS yesterday. I got... Continue reading

I finally got back on an insurance that I am comfortable with – yeah, paying almost $400 a month, but full coverage. I knew this and got ready for it in December. Got my logins for the new plans, and... Continue reading

There are two numbers that aren't budging and they are frustrating me – my weight and my A1C. One number is getting better – that's my sleep number. I'm getting over 7 hours a night lately which is much better... Continue reading

Primiarily, this is a test post, making sure that the latest version didn’t break anything. So far, it is looking good. I’ve learned a lot about Open Live Writer in writing the test plans. I wasn’t doing half of what... Continue reading

Okay, now this gets weird. Express Scripts won't cover the Bayor Countour glucose test strips but they will cover the sensors? Whatever, sensor exchange happening. Continue reading

Actually it isn't that hard. Layers of stress have been rolling off. First I got my medical insurance card. And leave it to Express Scripts to make sure I get my presciption stuff on January 2. I did get my... Continue reading

I'm trying to fix Dulce's running out of the ring, and Macy's lack of motivation by going to small, low key trials. In that effort, I entered Friday only – Waco Agility Group – at the Belton Expo Center. It's a drive from Dallas, the Expo center is located on the other side of Temple, but will worth it. There is even a La Quita at show site, which I think even I could walk from the hotel to the show site. The majority of crating is on concrete, and best yet for me, is that they had plenty of...

I have been doing yoga since about the time we got back from our cruise. On January 1, we celebrated my 50th class and celebrated doing their 60 day challenge – doing 5 classes a week for 60 days. I... Continue reading

I will admit I still don’t understand the code yet -- but I spent the holiday week creating test plans. I think I have plans for most of the dialog boxes. I had the majority of them in a pull... Continue reading

Got my prescriptions cards precisely on the 2nd of January. Will need new medications shipped on the January 14th. I’ve already got everything to @PillPack and I have full confidence they’ll get the ducks lined up. So much nicer than... Continue reading

I haven’t had to do a lot with source control. I have source control setup on my local server, but it’s Subversive which is a good way to start. I’ve always had a bit of trouble wrapping my head around... Continue reading

I might have to change my mind about Express Scripts. They made me absolutely nuts when I had to use them before – between how they shipped insulin, to how they manage some medications. There are advantages to Express Scripts... Continue reading

Was talking with an acquitance and updated him on my status and told him I was retiring. “No! You are too young to retire” So when I replied, “I’m semi-retired, I still teach but part time, I still work on... Continue reading

As I’ve mentioned before, OpenLiveWriter was released as open source on December 9. I found some typos in the documentation and raised an issue – which they fixed. I’ve proposed and started a test plan, which has been accepted into... Continue reading

So in the future I will be doing a lot of test posts. I’ll try to say something like that in the title and delete the post. I’m enjoying contributing to an Open Source project. At this point, I’m primarily... Continue reading

I am enjoying the birthday wishes, and have good plans today – an exercise workshop with @sunstonefit and dinner later with my husband. This is an important birthday for me as I am eligible now for Texas Teacher Retirement benefits.... Continue reading

Why not? No seriously. I love these items. I have been wearing them for over two years now and everytime someone sees them up close they want them. This is several sizes of the same design. They come in one... Continue reading

I mentioned a group the other day that retirement was hard. Here’s the deal. I didn’t plan retiring – and I still have a really cool part time job doing exactly what I like. The bonus is that I can... Continue reading
