I am tired of finding Starbursts in my pockets after they go through the wash, and I wish I had someone to blame besides myself.

That is all.

So I Didn't Quite Make It, But Hey.

Well, so I didn't exactly post every day for diabetic blogging week. And I TOTALLY meant to, I swear. The other posts were going to be more interesting, too. Honest. But my life got very crazy, we brought down a 16 year old girl to live with us for about a month, and even though she's a friend of mine and I've known her pretty much her whole life, adding a teenager to your house takes some extra work. Plus I have to like clean and stuff so she doesn't think I'm a slob. Plus it's the end of the school year, and the number of events in May is insanely high. Plus my husband needs the computer at night.

There - did I give enough excuses to assuage my guilt? Probably. I didn't feel all that guilty.

On the plus side, the sugars have been fairly good - one reading over 200, (stupid hasbrowns that I forgot about when bolusing) but the rest have been really very very normal, so I guess adding a teenage girl to your life regulates blood sugars - who knew?

I'm also adding that I have Zumba for my Wii and it's very fun, but the public will never know my awesomeness at it. And by "public" I mean "anyone at all".

Oh, and gas prices suck. Which is diabetes related, somehow.

Admiring Differences - Yeah, I Got Nothing. But I'm Still Posting.

So I'm supposed to blog about "admiring differences" in the diabetic world. And since I always do what I'm supposed to do, here goes:

*crickets* *staring at fingernails and wondering if I should paint them* *thinking about Diet Coke*

The thing is, I don't KNOW a whole lot of people with diabetes. A couple of them simply won't talk about the disease at all. Denial is so pretty! Pretty pretty denial! Yay!

And even though I started this a while ago, I have just started to find the D-Blogging world in an effort to somehow connect with people with the disease that changed my life dramatically. But let me say this - people that like to talk about diabetes are my friends. Even if we have nothing else in common and you like to torture puppies, if you want to share diabetic experiences with me, be it type whatever, or caring for a diabetic, or anything at all related, I will listen and talk with you. And I will love it. So here's hoping I can find more blogs that help. Here's hoping something I write helps someone else, even though most of it is boring numbers and whining.
