Gestational Diabetes

Okay, so I took my gluclose screening test a couple of days ago and I found out today at my doctor's appointment that I failed it by 5 points. 5 points! That's nothing! I even told my midwife that I cheated and had crackers a little bit before the test, and she said it didn't matter. In fact, she said she doubts that would make any real effect on the test. So now this Monday I have to be at the lab at Langley at 7:30 AM! Psh. The new test is three hours and is a total bummer. If you saw the waiting room at the lab you'd understand. I guess I'll bring a stack of magazines with me or something. I'm semi-worried about having Gestational Diabetes because my best friend ended up having it. She was diagnosed a week ago. She is the last person I thought would have it, and she did! So now I feel like anyone could be at risk. Fortunately for her, she's controlling it with diet, so that's not too bad. I would hate having to take insulin.

Anyway, today I had lunch with some friends at the Olive Garden. Plus they flipped the bill! I wasn't expecting that at all, but it was very nice of them. Getting free lunch is one of my favorite things! And now I'm home just chillin' with the cats. I'm thinking about cleaning my house, but my body is saying no. I have dishes, laundry, and sweeping to do. Ever since I found a home for Abbey my house has been remarkably cleaner, but it still gets dirty fast because I have hardwood floors.

Now some pics...
