Monday Mash...

Well, the dance was a lot of fun. I met up with a few friends, and we danced the night away. As usual I complained about the heat from all of the people being in such a closed space, and how much my feet hurt in my favorite red heels by the end of the night. Diabetes 365 - Day 107 Looks are deceiving.
On the diabetes front things were excellent. The dress I wore already had pockets, so I just slit a little hole in one for my tubing and no one even knew it was there. I arrived at the dance with a blood sugar of 106 on an 85% basal rate. I ate a pack of Swedish Fish to account for a bit of IOB left over from dinner and then I hit the dance floor. I ended the night at a fabulous 118. I would post a picture of me all gussied up, but I did not realize until the end of the night how low cut my dress was...so no pictures to embarrass myself even further by letting the whole world see.

I went to the dentist today. Most of it was good news. I am luckily blessed with no wisdom teeth, seriously I do not have them! I also don't have any cavities, but I do have to go back for the dentist to check out something (he suspects a cavity) underneath a sealant that I had put on 3 years ago. Unfortunately the hygienist did detect a small amount of gingivitis around my bottom front teeth, but that can easily be remedied with my "home care regimen". It's basically that I hate mouth wash, and I don't floss every single day (are there actually people that do?) So I guess I'll have to suck it up, and ramp up that aspect of my diabetes related regimen because unfortunately diabetes and gingivitis are related.

Time for another long week. I'm planning to focus more on my school work, we will see where that leads. I'm hoping I can get into a more consistent groove, because what I've been doing has not been as productive as I would like.

Have a great week!

The dance sounds fun - the dentist not as fun - all in all, not bad!

Sounds like the dance was fun and you did a masterful job with your diabetes! Nicely done!

I was born with only one of my wisdome teeth too. I count that as good, except that the root has a nasty 90 degree turn to it (it almost looks like a frickin' fish hook on the x-ray). They say it will be a heck of a thing to get out, so I'm holding off as long as I can!

I'm glad you had fun at the dance. And I'm happy to hear you don't have any wisdom teeth. Having mine removed was almost as bad as having my C-sections! Glad you won't have to worry about having any wisdom teeth removed.

Oh, and I don't floss regularly either. I don't think I know anyone who does. But I don't want gingivitis. Maybe I should start, huh? Good luck on your schoolwork. :)

Good job on the diabetes! Any excuse for Sweedish Fish is worth it. And on the flossing front - try one of those Reach Flossers - way better then sticking your hands in your mouth.

It was a great night.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinkings flossing is a bit tedious!

Ed, thanks for the suggestion. I'd have to agree Swedish Fish are top notch!
