Carrots

So, I have been craving carrots lately. I may be turning orange.

Aside from that, a busy week! Seems like I’d slow down only to go go go again. Even today, it was one of those days where it started off slow, then just never stopped. From it? Got some hours in for consulting gig + 3 possible projects in the coming weeks! So hopefully things pan out.

2018 may bring a full-time gig in addition to my business, and I think I’m good with that, just as long as it actually pans out, and is very solid.

Even if it isn’t there is a possible option for a new server customer too I may be getting, which would be cool, server customers slowed down this year – but hoping to really bump things up in 2018.

For now, a busy week has started winding down, take some meds and head to chill out in bed!

Sick to save a buck!

So not feeling too great today, did manage to still make a call I had, which something about being in tech mode another part of my brain takes over and just goes without delay – wish it worked that way everyday lol. But seems the Jr. Burger Lilly didn’t eat last night was what threw me over the edge – but I saved that money. 😀

Woke up around 630 feeling horrible, didn’t leave the bathroom until maybe 8 am, then passed out for an hour or two, was not a fun morning, but hoping things improve!

Today really focusing a bit on my own projects. Work lately has been slow, mainly because when you take nearly 2 months off to move – folks can’t find you and find other options, so hoping I can really dial things back in, get my own projects rolling to improve finances, but tomorrow once I feel better and can talk “job”, I hope to nail down some job options.

I love working in my own business, but I have applied a few places here and there trying to nail down some steady work, like a 9-to-5, but if I can get my own projects rolling, invest real time into them, might be able to get things rolling without it.

For now, back to resting.

The other side of posting…

So here we are, a year of posting is done, granted it wasn’t 100% a solid day-for-day year, but it’s done.

Excited day for me, seeing even lower blood sugar today, and yet tomorrow is the big day in which I go from the base dosage of the new med to the full dosage. 10mg -> 25mg – If I’ve seen a HUGE drop in sugar already should be interesting to see how a full dosage leaves me, will it be like coming off a drug (sugar) for so long my body is in “normal” ranges might be rough for a few days.

I have a meeting on Monday that should give me some direction for 2018 I hope, some projects to take on for a company I’ve been doing work for, should have more direction after a call tomorrow I hope. Then again, their track record sadly it may not ever happen – so not completely holding my breath.

It’s also another day switched over to Android (S8+) vs my previous iPhone 7+ – I’m pretty happy so far, I’ll feel a bit more confident once my screen protector and case come in, as it stands a tad slippery for my tastes, but aside from that the phone performs pretty well. I do miss Stripe having an app, but not a show stopper as I made some rules to send my phone a notification when payments come in which will work same as the email but more in real-time.

So things are moving forward, again don’t think I’ll do a PS: subject any longer, but my goal is to try and make a post daily.

PS:365 – It is finished.

An idea that was supposed to be wrapped up January 18th, 2017, went on a bit long. Such is life I suppose! You think “Oh I’ll write tonight” then you hit 2 server outages, 5 tickets, a sick kid, and a family trip all in the same 23 seconds. Foof.

I think I’m going to keep it going though – I want to keep it simple, I want to write every day because honestly, I need to keep clearing the old brain. We shall see!

For now, though the 365 posts I wanted to get out in 2016->2017 – is now done in nearly 2018 😀 Joys of life.

PS:364 – Samsung Galaxy S8+

So I got off the bandwagon. iPhone 7 Plus is gone, and the S8+ is the new daily driver. Not a huge move for me honestly, mainly because I’ve been using Android and iOS for years, granted the “Samsung” aspect is always a pain, but out of the options, it was the best.

I have most of the phone setup as I’m sitting here working, even trying out the nice headphones that came with it (it has a headphone jack, remember those?) 😀 but it’s working great – the only thing I’m missing is the Stripe app for CC processing review when I have things get paid for, now I do get email notifications which will have to do, but I need to find an alternative eventually as I do like being able to manage CC processing from my phone.

It has been a long day, blood draws, phone activation issues, and now I realize once again, I need food. So off I go to get grub.

PS:363 – Lowered Sugar

So my RBS has been going down. One morning it was 304 – 20 days later and on meds for only 3 days – my new RBS in the AM was 171! Down 133. Boom!

Tomorrow in the morning I go to do my blood work they requested, hoping maybe it’ll paint a better picture of why the levels have been what they are, the meds, however, are indeed helping! So happy to see levels lowering. While still high, hopefully, a trend we can keep with these meds and really help get me back in shape again walking and being active as lately its been a lot of sitting.

I do need to go find something to eat, may tear up my salad today as it sounds good, but been a slow day, but as of about 20 minutes ago it started perking up, some work coming down the pipeline, so here we go!

PS:362 – New Meds, New Site, New Year

So the doctor’s visit went okay. Really liked the new doc, I’ve met a few over the years and I’m honestly going to see if this guy can be my GP – I honestly haven’t felt like a doc actually heard me and answered my questions, this guy heard my concerns, answered my questions, and even gave me a newer med and teamed it up with the metformin to see if we can’t get the sugar under control, and gave me a new BP med which got my body to relax so much that last night I crashed out SUPER early – 9hr 45 minutes of sleep according to the fitbit.

Working hard on FlockHosting.com and ThrustNet.com this week, hoping to create a lot simpler set of sites, nail things down and make it concise and to the point, no more wordy pages, just what I offer, to the point, keep it simple, no hard to manage designs, easy to add if I need to, and simple to remove too.

2018 is rapidly approaching. A lot of things I want to see this coming year, and with 3 posts left in my commitment to post daily for a year, I’m really missing the steady flow as I’ve been writing these past few days, helps me get things out of my head and makes it more real if that makes any sense – journal is one thing, still great for things not ready for prime time, but online blog really makes it more “out there”, something about that is therapeutic to me.

For now, back to it, got swim lessons tonight with the kiddo, and night 2 of new meds, so we shall see how the RBS (Resting Blood Sugar) looks in the AM, this morning 201, still high, but for my mornings? Actually lower than just metformin! So improvement, hoping day two is even more!
