    Good morning.

    We are staying in a holding pattern at 2.75U for now, given Mikan's "I'll show you" 55 yesterday.
    Happy to see a blue start! I wonder where she'll take me to today!

    Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!

    I have so many wonderful things to say but am petrified to say them since Mikan reads these posts and likes to prove who is in charge :rolleyes:.
    Are you using calipers?

    Morning Kit, she’s definitely the boss and is a reader. All knowing Mikan. Smart girl there. She showed you yesterday. She wears the sparkly patience pants.
    Hoping she shows us a nice steady calm cycle today.
    Ivy is having a beach day, and looking for Mikan and Nestle.
    Have a calm day ahead :bighug::cat::bighug:

    Whoa whoa what a start. Both Mikan and Ivy started off strong today. Mikan should play professional poker. I'll see your increase and I'll bet you my blue AMPS hehe.
    Your move mama but Mikan let's play nice.
    Have a magical Thursday.

    Hahaha, Angela, Mikan sure loves to let me know who's the boss :rolleyes:
    Yes I do use the calipers - I love using them as they make things so much easier with the in-between doses (like 2.75). :cat:

    Hi Staci,
    It's just one of those things, I guess. Her numbers were truly "meh" for a while. I was so ready to go up and BOOM!
    What makes the difference? Weather? Sun? What's the secret, I wonder.
    Looks like Ivy's having a super active cycle as well! Hope she gives you a safe and steady goodness! :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Hi Alicia,
    Mikan has decided to go active all of a sudden :rolleyes:
    So far, a great cycle. I'm glad that I didn't go up!
    Hope you and Kit are having a great day! :bighug:

    They ALWAYS drive me crazy - they think that's their job! :p
    But can't complain of this cycle - Mikan's doing well!
    Hope you and Jack are having a nice day! :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Hi Karolina,
    Mikan gave me a surprise green and more!
    She got down to the beach and went a bit too far. Hopefully, she'll be right back!
    Wishing you and Nestle a great day! :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Hi Diane,
    More surprise came my way :rolleyes: At +12, she was 48, checked with AT2=61. I thought of skipping but decided to stall for 20 min. Then she was up to 75. Very strange but glad I waited and was able to shoot. She really really wanted to respond to the "I" word threat :p

    Whoa!! That was a wild cycle!! She sure let you know that the thing that shall be unnamed and unsaid is a NO Go!
    Sending very safe surfing vibes for you tonight. Our paws are crossed Kit!
    Be a good girl, Mikan. No more lime parties. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Woah - what a cycle today! And that +12?! Dang Mikan, I know mom was threatening the code word, but you don't have to be quite so dramatic.
    Do you think she was saving up all those meh cycles to really throw you a curveball? :bighug: I hope she stays in manageable numbers for you tonight!

    Thanks Staci,
    Mikan's been a full of surprises! I didn't believe the number at +12 so I tested with Freestyle Lite, Freestyle Freedom Lite and Alpha-trak 2 (I still have some strips!) all confirming the lime o_O
    I waited for 20 min without feeding and the number went up - I thought, aha! the effect of AM insulin must be wearing off. So far so good. I really hope I can keep her in a good range.
    My goodness. When her numbers are high and Meh, it's disappointing and distressing. She gets green start, I'm a nervous wreck! I can't win!
    We'll see how things will go! Hope you and Ivy have a relaxing nice evening! :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Hi Alicia,
    Isn't this so perplexing? She was totally disguising her curveball in those meh cycles. Waiting to retaliate against the code word! :rolleyes:
    Pounce! :eek:
    Mikan needs a new hobby, don't you think? :rolleyes:

    Boy good job with all the meters!! She’s very stealth with her lime plans. I’m so glad you caught her and then she did come up. I would have been so nervous that she would just drop again ( that’s what Ivy seems to do, when she’s low at a preshot, she keeps going down for the next several hours. Ivy seems to have some late nadirs I think). Just like this morning. She began low and just went lower. I fed her a 9% food but she still went lower for her. So it didn’t seem to thwart her plans:facepalm:).
    Ivy is bouncing tonight so I’m gonna try to get In bed and hope for the best!

    But I’m glad Mikan came up for you. That was good going. Please have a safe surf tonight. I’m so glad you didn’t do the thing. :smuggrin:

    Thanks Staci,
    She's playing with fire tonight. But I know that eventually, she's got to start going up.
    Possibly then a trampoline jump. :rolleyes: Feels already defeated to see limes just to anticipate the pink :rolleyes:
    I know, it's silly to get myself worked all up like that, but it's hard not to feel that way after repeating the same pattern!
    Well, for now, I'll focus on getting through tonight!

    Thanks Diane,
    It's been quite a day!
    Just a few days ago, I was thinking that Mikan wasn't going anywhere. Boy was I wrong!? :p
    Happy to see her in low numbers but it's nerve wrecking with her.
    But she is coming back up now. Hope she'll steady herself now.
    Thanks for your supportive words - means so much to me. More than you think! :kiss::bighug::bighug::bighug:
