I can't think of a catchy title for this post. Mainly just because this post is a filler...Nothing much worth writing about has happened.

Today is day 4 of Metformin....And I feel...Nothing. I am having virtually no side effects!! Which causes me to wonder if they are even working? The first 2 days I was a little crampy and gassy. But that's it.

However, last night and today I have been getting some wicked bad dizzy spells. I mean, I'm talking "the whole room is spinning" kind of dizzy spells. Any of you Metformin users ever experienced this?

Awesome weekend ahead of me! My best friend just turned 21 on Tuesday, so tomorrow night were celebrating at J's parents house. They live on a 10 acre farm and we live in a townhouse....not the best environment for a 21st birthday party. Everyone gets to drink and have fun and I get to play DD all night! YAY Metformin and stupid Lactic Acidosis.

Were going to be landscaping the yard tomorrow! WOOHOO!! Planting some flowers and getting everything all prettied up! J is a professional landscaper so this will be just another day on the job for him, but for me it's so much fun! Hopefully I'll be getting a good camera tomorrow and I'll take some pictures of the yard, and of the party!

Alright..Back to work...4.5 more hours until my weekend begins!


  1. Hi Ashley Sweetie...
    It's Sherry, from Phoenix. Marydon just popped over to tell me that you had started a blog, so I popped right over and signed up. I can't wait to see the pics you share of your landscaping. You had so many beautiful pots out front, I can't wait to see what you do with everything. I was so tickled to meet you and J while I was there. You two are perfect for each other. I was so tickled to see that he took you to the jewelry store. It is a start sweetie.

    I take 2,000mg of Metformin every day for my diabetes. Yes I know all about the horrible side effects of it. It is not a fun drug at all. For me I was so nauseated for days on end. I am thankful you are not having that side effect.

    Have fun at the party. Can't wait to see the pics. Please stop by and say hi. Congrats on your blog sweetie. I love it. Please tell J "hi" for me.

    Country hugs from Phoenix and much love, Sherry

  2. Awww thank you Sherry! We really enjoyed having you over! You are such a sweetie! I will tell J you say hello!

    I love your blog! So many pretty things to look at =) I'll definitely be stopping by =)

    *HUGS* Ashley

    Faith & hope will carry you all the way, my precious Ashley.

Trust & believe, hope & prayer ... all are on your side, sweetie.

    I am sure you will have fun at the party, tho I know it can't be as enjoyable as Joshua's, right?!

    Ansel had a lovely birthday party .. he is so excited about the Star Wars figurines we got him ... I can only wish you could have seen & heard his excitement ... you were so missed. Next time ...

    Today is Lauren's First communion ... we leave here shortly.

    Have a beautiful day digging in the dirt ... see you at church tomorrow.

    Love forever, sweet one ~
