Disney World 2009

I am so very excited - we are heading for Disney World tomorrow morning - for 10 days! Of course, I'm sure I'll be blogging pictures (at the very least) throughout our trip - I won't be able to resist making everyone look at them!

Blood sugars are good and I'm praying they hold steady so that Nikki has a fabulous trip as well. On the 30th we'll be celebrating my oldest daughter's (Amber) 15th birthday at a place called Akershaus Royal Banquet in Epcot Center…

This evening I was thinking and that made me think (seriously); I wondered how much of my time is spent worrying about Nikki's blood sugars and then worrying about whether or not I'm doing all the things necessary to help her become a healthy, successful and independent young lady - That's when I realized that my overactive worrying/thinking button had been pushed and that, in turn, caused me to start speaking in "Suess language" again.

Livin' Loud

Nikki danced her little heart these last few days – what a great performance! The theme this year was “Livin’ Loud” and it was awesome.

Of course Nikki’s two best friends were dancing as well (Sam and Brooke). Brooke is in a different class this year, but they were all three still pretty much… Continue

Summer Ramblings

Happy Weekend! What beautiful weather we’ve been having! We are still in the middle of Nikki’s recital week – at this point she is preparing for her performance on Wednesday night. She’s had really great blood sugar numbers: of course, if I could figure out a way for her to live in a swimming pool she would have perfect numbers all the time; she is a fish and thankfully we have a pool – which is… Continue

Wow, I didn't realize it has been so long since I've had a chance to blog. We have hit one, if not THE, busiest times of year for us and there just aren't enough hours in the day. Let's see, both Nikki and Amber have had their final chorus performances for the year; and for their schools - they are both moving on to middle and high school next year.

Amber has had us especially busy lately: her chorus group performed at King's… Continue
