so yesterday i mentioned how windy it was here. so windy, in fact, that i now have a lovely big tree leaning against the side of my house. said tree took out eavestrough, siding, window trim, shrubs, gas meter and left the lovely smell of rotten eggs floating through the neighbourhood!
so after dealing with the city, about cleaning up the mess, filing a claim for damages, and contacting my ins. co....i went to my DEC to order my brand new Insulin Pump!!!! i finally did it! in about 1 week the Animas Ping will be my new bestest friend!! i am excited and nervous at the same time. when it arrives i am going to post a picture, but for now i will try to post one of the infamous tree!

Sorry about the tree and the damage. I happen to like trees, a lot, and I also prefer for my house to be in one undamaged piece. Still noone was hurt and you're getting a Ping, so thumbs up for that! Here's hoping for a tranquil weekend, at least weather-wise.

Wow! took a hurricane-force gale to motivate you? Well, whatever works I guess :) but congrats on the pump and sorry about the tree.
