"Ah, naked showers! I miss those. I've only had one since starting on the pump back in June. And that was purely an accident. I forgot the set and sensor were there....I'm new at this, so that's my defense. Caught the corners of both…"

Naked Showers + 10k= Awesome Weekend

This weekend rocked :-) Not only did I get a naked shower on Saturday. Yes, a naked shower, you know that magical time when your sensor and site need to be changed on the same day.... I also ran in my first 10k, not only did I not spike during the middle of the run but I also didn't crash in the afternoon. Oh and the 10k was finished in just under an hour. Went to my parents for a lunch of grilled salmon and roasted veggies right out of their garden. Then I had Thai food for supper with a…See More

The first day of school

So today started off like the first day of school has for the past 12 years (NOT). Actually my 13th year of teaching started off at 4am with my cgm telling me I was low. I felt a bit shaky but really had to pee so I went to the bathroom first. On my way from the bathroom to my bg meter (about 8 steps) I managed to pass out. I don't remember falling but when I came to I was staring at the ceiling with my head and butt hurting. I tested my bg thinking I was wicked low or something, nope I was at…See More

"Well, being from Maine some nice Lobstah and Mussels with drawn butter always works for me :-) But if I had my way a nice piece of blueberry cake would go with it."

Words are a curious thing they can lift us up or pull us down. We can say something with good intention and it comes across the wrong way. This happens a lot when you aren't face to face with people and are communicating through messaging, emails, and yes the chat room.

A couple of days ago there was someone in chat that was feeling bad about a rather high bg number. Instead of getting suggestions on what they could do to help get it down or the much wanted "hey, that sucks"…
