I received even more good news from the new doctor's office, today! My lab test results came back and most of the results were good! My A1c blood sugar level was good, below even the "pre-diabetes" level! Apparently, I am doing well with controlling the diabetes through diet; I've been off medications for it since last October. She said some of the results showed that I might be dehydrated, so I am to drink more water! And, of course, I need to lose weight!
Today, I vacuumed the house, changed the dust sheets on the sofas in the family room and my bed sheets, did two loads of laundry, ran the dishwasher, and washed some other dishes by hand. Then, I went to the pet supplies store for more kitty litter and flea spray, for both indoors and out. Later, I sprayed and sprayed and sprayed inside the house!
Yesterday, I found out from where the fleas were coming into the house! There is a crack on the floor where the "new" bathroom (the "new" addition of family room, bathroom, and laundry closet is now about 20 years old!) joins the rest of the house. The caulking has chipped off, leaving a tiny gap. Well, apparently the fleas are coming up from under the house through that gap! I need to caulk it, but, in the meantime, I duct taped it! Then, I noticed that they were coming through the wall socket closest to that crack and duct taped around the socket, too!
On the way home from buying the kitty litter and flea spray, I stopped at one of the Armenian grocery stores to see if they had my favorite loaf bread, but they didn't. They were stocking up the shelves with a different type of bread (a flatter, elongated, oval shaped bread), but I didn't buy that or any other item.
I had what I call "breakfast fried rice" (leftover rice fried with crumbled bacon, scrambled eggs, a little dried Maldive fish chips, chili powder, curry leaves, and other spices) for brunch, today. Later in the afternoon, I had a little pistachio ice cream for a treat! An early dinner of frozen lasagna, followed by a fresh mango and some crackers for a snack, later.
Today I am grateful for:
- Good lab test results
- Flea sprays
- Duct tape
- The light drizzle we received
- Working appliances!
