Not much to write about today, it was a pretty slow but busy day overall, until about 3pm..
I got a phone call with a panicking babysitter on the other end. I have a teenager babysitter who I hired for the Summer at a pretty good price and she comes to the house, so i don't even have to get kids ready in the morning ;-)
I know we went over all the testing techniques and what to do's and not to do's and in a split moment it's all done! In part it is my six year old's fault too.…Continue
Aidan is going to be starting Kindergarten in the Fall, and I have to admit, I am starting to get kind of nervous. He goes to a great school -- very small, intimate, caring. They have always taken excellent care of him. But all-day Kindergarten is a new ball game, and counting carbs at lunch -- yikes!
The aide for his new teacher was promoted, and I don't know the details yet about a new aide. Hopefully there wil be one, and hopefully he/she will be as detail-oriented as the old one…Continue

Does the heat affect your blood glucose? I notice Noah will be on the low side when it's hot. I was wondering if it's just him, or do other diabetics get this way in the heat?
What do you do to beat the heat? We don't even have air conditioning - well only in the bedrooms but fans everywhere else. I saw something in Real Simple to try and bring some relief. Take a new tube sock, fill it with rice and put it in the freezer for a couple hrs. Then you can drape the cold sock around your…Continue
This is a post I wrote on my blog back in January. I thought I'd share it here.
It was 4:30 in the morning. I heard a voice coming from the other room.
I nudged Michael to wake him and told him Riley had just called him. He immediately got up and went to see…
Soon I'll be leaving my adopted Delaware home and returning to Pennsylvania (the state I originate from).
My hubby and I are looking for places to live that are north of Philadelphia, preferably just north of I-76.
Anybody have any suggestions? If not, that's cool. We're moving soon! Ack! Wow! Oh geez!

I have never done a blog...
I guess today has been one of sugars being high for no particular reason. David was ok when he got up but was over 20 at lunch. The diabetic nurse is annoyed with me because I test David so much. I suppose I can't stack his insulin, so why do I need to know what his sugars are in between meals. ...And who knows what he eats behind my back. He just came in with an apple...which I didn't give to him.
It is frustrating not to be able to give a 1/4 unit.…Continue
I have spent most of the morning playing around with our page. Asking myself do I like this layout or does this one look better? Just when I thought I found one, another would catch my eye. I swear I could still be messing around if I let myself. Maybe I will change it according to Adins' and my moods. I finally settled on Dance Party, mostly cause the name sounded fun and the colors matched Adin's photo.
Then I obsessed over what I should put in our Intro. Asking myself how in the…Continue
