I watch a lot of TV so when I was trying to figure out what to title this post, all I could think of was the clips they show you before a new episode begins. It’s been about a month since my last “real” post so I feel like to catch up I have to stick with the clip version or this would turn into a miniseries.
The drive across the country was largely uneventful diabetes-wise. That in itself may have been remarkable considering the amount of fast food and gas station snack food consumed. Sometimes I think packaged food may be “easier” to eat with diabetes because you know a pretty accurate carb count for a serving size.
I had a small insulated lunch bag that I stored my insulin in during the trip with a few ice packs. Most of the hotels we stayed at did not have refrigerators in the room but they would put the ice packs in the lobby freezer so they would be ready for me in the morning.
I moved exceptionally close to family so when my dad and I arrived in town early afternoon on Superbowl Sunday, we had just enough people and just enough time to unload the truck before kick off.
I wrote a quick post on the day I celebrated my 10th diaversary.
Nine days later I celebrated my birthday.
In between those two dates, I started my new job. Little by little I am explaining the beeps and buzzes that come from my side of the office. Pretty much everything about this job – the hours, the people, the environment, the routine – is different from my previous job. I think there are going to be some unique opportunities here and I am excited to explore them.
I am completely addicted to Candy Crush and it is all Meri Schuhmacher’s fault. The only relief is the satisfaction in blowing up all that sugar.
I watched my niece and nephews over night on Valentine’s Day. One of the kids had some trouble sleeping and I was up every few hours throughout the night. I felt like I got a glimpse into the nightlife of the parents of children with diabetes and it is not something I am interested in repeating.
And with that, I think I’m all caught up!
