Thank You, Diabetes OC!

Really, you guys are the best. Thank you for all your supportive comments, pleasant feedback, and general hilarity on my last post. It's great to know I've got so many terrific friends out there who I've never even met in person.

(Hey, one of these days, some of that might change. Not the terrific, just the meeting part.)

It's snowing outside, and while the roads are turning to a slushy mess, the trees are gorgeous. I also ponyed up the cash today for a proper haircut, hopefully resulting in a more polished image when I got to job interviews. I'm not sure what to call it exactly, but I think it's one of the better haircuts I've had. I might post some pics later once I find some batteries for the camera.

Tomorrow, if the roads are clear, I think my mission will be to find something resembling a suit. I think if I'm as professional as possible when I show up for job interviews, I won't have to worry that that's the reason nobody calls me back. However, being that it's January, the jobs are popping up pretty regularly. I just have to hang in there.

One week 'til I see Gary. Went to the GP today to see about my lingering cough and congestion, and big surprise, it's a sinus infection. Matt has one too--like husband, like wife, I guess. She asked if I'd made an endo appointment yet. I told her when it was, and also told her I'd be seeing a Diabetes Educator. She seemed pleased. Mission accomplished, perhaps?

I'm just trying to hang in there and have fun in my free time. Once again, thanks for being great readers and friends. Catch you next entry.


  1. Sometimes just getting a new haircut makes you feel better, doesn't it?

    Glad you went to the doctor for your sinus issues, cold, cough, etc. These nasty things seem to be lingering on forever! I hope your sinus infection clears up fast.

    Good luck finding a suit & be careful out there in that snow.

  2. I want to meet the fabulous bloggers too!!! I'm glad you got a great hair cut, I have yet to have one in my entire 16 years. Having extremely curly hair means that no one knows how to cut it, so I just do it myself and it looks much better. Good luck suit searching. Check out Dress Barn if you have one by you. They are quite friendly in the somewhat stylish clothing for the "plus size" ladies. My sister got 3 suits there over the summer for her job at the Philly DA's office. Also I hope your sinus infection clears up.

  3. Sinus infections suck. I hope it clears up quickly.

    Re: the "fucknut" on your other post - I know ONE person with diabetes who has a 5.5 a1c. And he has NO pancreas because his was removed entirely due to pancreatitis. I don't know if that makes any difference or not, but I know a lot of people with diabetes and thus far, he's the only one I've heard of with one so low.

    I need a great hair cut. Or, just a mediocre hair cut. I haven't had my hair cut in 15 months.

  4. We love you too Hannah! And I sure do hope to get to meet you and many other OC'ers someday.

    I LOVE the feeling of a good haircut... heheheh.

    Hope you feel better soon, and good luck with the job hunt!
