All I want for christmas

is a low A1C.

For those of you who didn't read NYT yesterday (like me), a new study has come out on tight control and the decreased risk of heart problems.

Yet another reason to get the AIC down.

Speaking of which- I have to go cover the 300 bs that accompanied all those chocolate holiday presents that are floating around our office.

Note to self* Just because you ate one bite of chocolate doesn't mean you don't need to cover it- especially when all those little bites add up to one big bar of wonderfulness.

My early christmas present

Tomorrow I'm going to pick up my new transportation. An impulse buy after my little VW Golf came back from her checkup in need of more replacement parts. We have had a wonderful time together- but it is time for us to go our separate ways. (I'm am working really hard on trying not to personalize the car- but as those of you with VW's know- it's hard. They're just so damn cute.)

So tomorrow I will be the proud owner of a new Audi Avant (Audi speak for wagon). I think their sexy. I know that I am in the minority here - but there has always been something about a sleek sophisticated wagon that I find completely irresistible.

A.'s laughs at me. (But then again she is a two seat, rear-wheel drive, roadster girl.) We'll see what she says after a snowy commute in the new avant with quattro (Audi speak for 4 wheel drive.)

6 credits left

wooo hoooo.

Finished my last exam for the semester. Now I am happily curled up on the couch, with a fire going, and indulging in a little seasonal egg nog. Maybe I'll finally get around to putting the lights on the Christmas tree, maybe not.

I am now 6 credits away from my Masters in Economics. I've been going part time for the past couple of years. If anybody has ever considered a economic degree from Suffolk in Boston - I am warning you - it's an evil program. Don't do it!

Ahh, but for now I am going to let the happiness of this frosty holiday season wash over me and just enjoy being a person. Maybe I'll also finally finish those 3 blog drafts I have sitting in my dashboard.

Just had my doctor friend get my A1C results for me.


I am very happy right now. I was hoping to break an eight this time- but was guessing that I would be somewhere in the low eights- so this was a big surprise.

Yeah me.

(Anybody else notice how slow Joslin is with getting back your results? Don't they know that two days after the visit I am at my mailbox anxiously awaiting that letter.)
