Brownies and Oatmeal Cookies


Saturday, my family and I went to Carlsbad, CA to listen to a Time Share Presentation…I already know what your thinking and no they didn’t try to pressure me or my Husband to buy anything. It was actually pretty nice and not badly priced.  If circumstance’s were different we would have purchased a unit.

OK, back to the subject…

I was sitting in the middle of the presentation and my bg’s started to drop. I said excuse me my blood sugar is getting low and I need to grab me a snack. I heard my Husband tell Jennifer (sales person) that I was a diabetic.  


I walked up to the refreshment table–there were apples, cookies, brownies, coffee, diet pop and a few other things. Umm! My blood sugar was low so why not have a nice oatmeal cookie with raisin’s.  I never eat cookies, why not?  I also grabbed a brownie, I don’t know why because I hate brownies…lol the low blood sugar must have really been getting to me! I went back to the table. My Husband looked at me like he wanted to kill me!!! Oops…Why did I grab a cookie and a brownie?  My husband was furious and a little embarrassed, after all he just told Jennifer I was a diabetic.  I just wanted to live on the edge is that wrong? 

 We walked out of the Time Share presentation with 150.00 gift card to Toys’R’ Us and a free 3 day, 2 night stay to any place we wanted. Great deal right? I think so.  

Here’s the worst part…

On the ride home, I got a stomachache.  It was down hill from there, literally down hill!

 I REALLY hate brownies. I loved the cookie but next time I’ll stick with using my apple, grape or cherry glucose tablets when going low. 

Just thinking about Brownies is making me sick…..GRR!
