Yesterday, or in my world the weekly Carb Fest At The Cake Lady's, Mom surprised me. She proudly stated, "I ran to the store and bought some apples and oranges for tonight's supper since when I was deciding on what salad to make I figured out they wouldn't be good for you."
Wow!!!! She has, after a little over 3 years of Tuesday Night's together decided a meal does not have to include fruit canned in heavy syrup with marshmallows and salad dressing!!! And this miracle has happened without me preaching or sulking.
Thankfully my marshmallow loving sister was in Ohio. She may have sulked a bit, since I always pass my marshmallows over to her.
As I sat happily munching on fresh apple slices and a few orange segments she asked if I had seen the commercial for the armband thing that holds your insulin and some sort of needle thingy, and would that be helpful for me.
The in town sister and I tried to explain that I do not use insulin, but it would be very helpful to those who do.
I didn't have the heart to remind her that I don't have a TV.
