Women's Final Australian Open Tennis Championship

Just for the record, after much phoning back and forth -- I was very aggressive about all this -- I finally got my insulin in a pen and began using it. Plus I have an appointment with the specialist, too (again, I ended up phoning them). That appointment isn't until February 9, so as Marilyn put it, they must not think I'm dying or anything. Haha.

It's actually past 2:00 a.m. Right now -- we're up watching the Women's Finals for the Australian Open Tennis Championship right now. It's a set each for Halep and Wozniacki, both really outstanding players. Both are close to the same age and hit the ball really hard. It's been an impressive match, which is always nice for the Finals.

I spoke a couple of times with our friend Shari today -- very nice chatting with her. And I spoke several times with sister Sue, who has been really depressed recently. She called before this match, but not since then, so I don't know if she's still awake and watching...

We like talking to her during the match, so I'm sorry she hasn't phoned again. We can't call her as we might wake Candy...

I don't mean to dwell on it, but it's certainly nice having the pen for my insulin injections! So much less painful! It's wonderful that insurance covers it. The pen is ridiculously expensive. At one point we were going to try and pay out-of-pocket for it, but it was hundreds of dollars a month (!!!).

Marilyn did the treadmill again tonight, but didn't get her 10,000 steps. She does have a lot of steps for Saturday, however! I got 6,000 steps today, I'm happy to say.

I did the sheets (bed linen) today. And cleaned the cat boxes.

We have work and errands tomorrow. And a funeral on Sunday. It might not be a miserable pouring down weekend. The weather lately is nasty, cold and very wet.

Sweet dreams, my friends!
