Hi Onesaint! Most of me recovered years eve I sliced a little piece of my thumb off and it's just now almost completely healed. Free-hand mandolin slicing not recommended!
We're in the heart of winter here now...lots of snow, crazy wind off of Lake Erie and cold days. At least the snow is pretty.
I hope your new year has started off as great as mine!

Hey :)  I'm on break from grad. classes, and as far as teaching I have 3 more days to go (break starts Thursday).  I don't expect the first graders to want to get much done this week though, haha.


I still swear by my Ping and the control it's given me - it's convinced me more than ever that something was just 'off' about my MM, because without changing settings, diet, or lifestyle, I took my A1c from 6.5 to 5.9.  The sites are a little better - these sets still hurt a little in the tummy, but I found that my 'love-handles' area doesn't hurt a bit, and my hip area is sort of a who knows.  No matter if it hurts, absorption is usually great, even if when I take it there's blood in the cannula.  I haven't seen the Mios, but they sound like the Insets I'm using (except I'm using the 9mm length because I have some cushion on me).


How are things going with the Dex?  I'm starting to consider it, when a merge happens (I don't need one more device to manage, having it merged with the Ping is optimal for me).

Been a while since I said are you doing?

I started it but am focusing on the last couple chapters of this book called The Geography of Bliss...then I'll dive head first into Diabetes Solution.


I have to tell you that I did my sensor insertion a few minutes ago with no stress because I was distracted by your comment about not getting the tape wet.  (and some vodka)...but HOW do you not get it wet?  I tried the press n seal and I don't believe whoever says that stuff actually works on your body.  And I can't find waterproof bandaids big enough to cover it.  So what do you suggest?

Gosh, what didn't my brother do?  He was bad!  Fortunate for me because I always look good next to him;)  I don't remember what it was exactly...strange church!

My brother was actually excommunicated but i think they just let me go!

German both sides with English added to the paternal side.  I was raised mormon, though a believer no longer, so my mom was really into genealogy.  I don't know what happened to all of it.  Last time I visited I asked her to try and find it because I'd love to know more about my roots. 

From what I've heard it's really difficult to get a work visa in New Zealand.

Very interesting background.  Most of my family is german but I can't say I felt any cultural influence in my life, just little sayings and stories I learned from my nanna in german.  I'd like to go to Basque country in Spain and I'd LOVE to go to New Zealand!  Too bad it's so hard to get a job there....lots of traveling to do and hopefully plenty of time to make it happen!

Why India?
I won a contest through work- sold the most Ineeka tea in the region and the owner took me to his childhood home on a tea farm called Ambootia in Darjeeling, along with a couple other people. We traveled around a little in Delhi, then went to Agra to see the Taj Mahal, of course. Then they all left and I went to Dharamsala to where the Dalai Lama lives and it's much more Tibetian culture (safer to travel as a single female) and hiked around in the foothills of the Himilayas awhile. Amazing trip and so much left to see in that country!

I haven't really traveled in Europe-just day layovers in Brussels and Milan. Both fun stops.
Otherwise, it's been developing countries all the way!

Kids like to travel! Sounds like your girls are hardy;)

It actually leaaves, produce, deli, specialty (coffee, cheese, alcohol), seafood, meat and bakery for someone else! Basically I'm the center of the store. I look for places I'm interested in and apply and get them to move me. I am a wanderer:)
