It's after dinner on day one of three days of carb loading for my glucose tolerance test. I've had 200g of carbohydrate today (the equivalent of 13 slices of bread) and I still need to have another piece of fruit, a couple more serves of vegetables and a bowl of cereal before I go to bed (I could have pasta instead of the cereal but I don't see myself whipping up some penne for supper). Feeling very full and sleepy.
Major family disaster today. My daughter does dance (jazz funk) lessons and they have a concert in two weeks. I didn't get around to buying tickets, I was waiting to hear back from grandparents but also just didn't make it a priority, and they are sold out! I am on a list in case someone doesn't need theirs but as I am halfway down the second page of names I just don't see that happening. I haven't told my daughter yet. Horrible stuff-up on my part. I don't know what to do about it. I wonder if there is a chance I'll be able to watch her bit of the final dress rehearsal? She's only nine and very excited about the concert. We bought $60 worth of costume and $85 worth of make-up for it, plus $20 for a lesson on how to apply stage make-up. She is going to be very upset if none of her family can be there. I'm waiting to talk to my husband first but I don't know if there is a solution.
