|Got to meet Steve Cooksey while in SC. He and Adrian were best buds.|
We have been staying in a hotel ever since. Closing on the house keeps being delayed. Hopefully we will be in the new house by the 2nd. Diana has started school and is doing great. She has been nominated for gifted and talented and will start testing soon. Aidan hasn't been able to do pre-k because here it's only a half day program and we only have one vehicle. Matt started his new job on the 9th and it seems to be going well.

|Ok this isn't so bad. Gimme!|
After a few weeks of daily blood sugar spikes that I attributed to dawn phenomenon, I have discovered that the Splenda I put in my coffee is to blame. The first ingredient in most sweeteners such as Sweet n Low, Equal and Splenda contain Dextrose to bulk it. Crazy huh? One would think that the small amount would have no effect, but as much coffee as I drink combined with my sensitivity to carbs caused my blood sugar to spike. I have since switched to Truvia, which is Stevia (a natural sweetener) and Erythritol a sugar alcohol which occurs in some fruits and fermented foods. Since the switch, I have had completely normal blood sugars!
The last few weeks have definitely been hectic, and will probably continue to be so for a while, but hopefully things will settle down soon. To tide you over, here are some more pics!
