Hi Sarah! August is a whacky month for most of us. Behind on bills because of both vehicals in the shop one time or the other. We're in one vehical for now which has no a/c. Spent 500 dollars on the light bill today, there goes some of our meds for me and my husband whose diabetic also. We'll have to wait till next week.

Good news is my business is picking up, I clean residential and make readys on the side. It's just me and hubby and daughter in law doing the work. Haven't really hired anyone because we need the money to come into the household and supporting my mother and my husband's father.

I really need to find some time to start writing my book. It seems the day goes by so fast and you wonder what did you do. LOL Anyways, hope you are doing great and maybe I can go with you to a convention or something thru the Tudiabetes. Cool, huh!

Hoorah!! Great news. Hopefully you will enjoy this proposal writing more :)

Progress here is really slow. I wanted to write the next chapter this "summer", but suddenly the summer is almost over and I'm still just reading. No writing yet-- SOON!! ;)

Best wishes on your 'new' adventure!

Sounds interesting as well! I hope that you are able to find something doable that your supervisory team also supports! I know it's not easy...

My income data is from the Luxembourg Income Study.

I'm using household income survey (produced by official statistical offices in each country-- and standardized by international researchers) and different authors "data" on political party systems (placing political parties on different scales).

But my primary methodology is actually just comparative case studies (comparing 3 policy areas in 4 countries). There is less pressure to use statistical methods in Europe. Are you expecting to have numerical data for statistical analysis... or is the missing data rather just mean missing empirical evidence?

My brother went to Hope College... So I've been in Holland many times! Your project sounds interesting!! Hope that you are able to find a new direction there that can re-motivate you. Progress always come in plateaus, I think. But the time that you spend on the flat part is frustrating, but (I believe) necessary for making the next jump. I just spent a long time on a plateau!

Keep me posted!

Commiseration sounds great :)

Yes I sometimes read phdcomics, but I try to avoid it because I'm very prone to procrastination (if you need proof, check my TuDiabetes activity!!!)

What are you thinking of changing your topic to?

I'm writing about how political party systems influence redistributional effects of welfare states in CEE. I'm in my 3rd year and really hoping to finish in 1-2 years, but it is all a pipe dream for now!

HI, have you ever noticed the way that IOB affects your control?
It's interesting that cozmo has a linear formula and animas is curvilenear. Curvilinear is supposed to be more like the bodies response. Thanks! I have noticed, from years of MDI, more difference in the way long term insulin is metabolized. Itll be intersting to get into more detail with the humalog.

Hi Sarah! Thanks for writing on my wall. I went to school for Electrical Engineering. My specialty has turned out to be wireless. I worked for one of the major US cellular companies for nearly ten years on the design and performance of their networks in New York and Philadelphia.

Hi Sarah! I added some photos of the sport MP3 holder.

In response to your comment on the pump holder blog post:

I feel your pain Sarah! That's my number 1 dilemma. The answer is that I generally buy clothes with belt loops-- whether skirts or pants. I have a few pairs of dress pants and skirts that don't have belt loops, but have a side zipper with a clasp or a button right at the top. Then I hook the loop of the pump holder around the top of the pants when the clasp/button is and zip up the pants only 95%. (I can't think of a better way to explain it... I'll post a picture later). The other thing that I use occasionally when I want to completely hide the pump is a Sport MP3 player case around my calf. I use this one, which fits the Cozmo nicely.

Great A1C! :) I love to see a low one like that. I am trying for uner 6.0, but still not there.
Even though it's a little late, welcome to the site.

Hi Sarah....thanks again for your insights. You and your husband are adorable. Congrats on your marriage.
I love and cultural history. I always say I am a frustrated Margaret Meade. Will you be teaching in Cleveland? Good luck in your studies.

You have to wonder where people come up with these ideas. Imagine using infrared to download from something that needs to stay attached to you. Even a USB cable would have been better, and way faster.

How easy was it to get SiDiary to suck data from your Cozmo? Did you have to do anything special?

I'm also wondering whether there's any way to get SiDiary to get data our of my continuous glucose monitor.

Also you mentioned a USB infrared gizmo. Could you send me details on the one that worked for you?

There is a way to solve the situation you describe. However it will take a lot of work, since it will involve submitting as many feeds to Diabetes Daily as there are members here. Let me talk to David to see what his thoughts are on this.

THX for pointing it out.

Yay! Thanks Manny for the assistance.
