I got my a1c number yesterday…6.5, which is the first number that qualifies you for a Type 2 diabetes diagnosis. Honestly, I think it’s largely influenced by the month of super crap I ate before we left the US. I’m going to wait a few months and get the a1c repeated before I take it too seriously. Considering I weigh less than I did when I got pregnant with Elanor and still losing, I’m not super worried.
Not shocking considering my intestinal bug and Ravi’s pneumonia, but I’ve put off potty training for a few weeks because we’re just not in a place to do this correctly. Right now it would be too many mixed messages and not enough reinforcement. I bought some diapers and then we’ll try pull-ups again. I also have a book that talks about potty training depending on the personality of the kid. I generally am over the whole parenting book “thing” but this seems like something worth perusing.
In the area of self-improvement, I’m perusing online open courses at MIT, Notre Dame and other strong schools. Maybe something in History, Literature, Anthropology or an area of personal interest.
