Roselady over at Diapeepees started Good Fridays...
a day to reflect on the 'good' of the week, no D allowed!
Venerdì è buona...Friday is good!
Italian this week!
1. Stuff in the Mail. I could actually make this all three things, well four, because it was a stellar mail week!
a. Pancreas from I Heart Guts. I saw this over on Diabetesaliciousness the other day and had to go check it out...then I was totally sucked in by its cuteness and had to order one! I guess if Bean can't have a functioning one, she can at least have a cute one!! ;)
b. Dexcom. We are now the proud droolers of a Dexcom Seven+. Granted, Bean doesn't even know it's here yet, but she knows it was on its way, so she'll be thrilled to hear it's arrived. So looking forward to getting her all hooked up. Posts to follow, of course!
c. Lenny the Lion and stuff. My entry of "...so, sandwich plus grapes, carry the one...plus muffin, carry the two...um...it's gonna be...um...give me a sec...um...MERI, HELP ME!!" for what Lenny was thinking on day four of Meri's give away week won! Here's what was in the box...
Lenny, cool letter from Meri, magnet with quote, bracelet,
Post Its and Sharpies
HAVE FAITH / EXPECT MIRACLES
d. Letter from Camp!! We (well, I...Ubergeek was a bit upset that his name wasn't on the envelope or letter!) got a letter from Bean from camp!! It was addressed by her...very cutely incorrect, but 'fixed' so it would actually get here! I'm still smiling about it!
the front of the paper was a picture of the bus she rode to camp
"Mommy I miss you but I am having fun."
2. Week of Normal. It was nice to have a week where food wasn't measured or weighed, carbs weren't counted, BGs weren't checked, and sleep was only interrupted by coughing or the need to pee. It was quite surreal to not think about portions or worry if something wasn't eaten or if more was requested. Yes, I totally missed Bean but I did not miss D at all!!
3. Gas is under $4.00!! It's so nice to see a 3 at the front of gas prices around town! Some places are as low as $3.94! You need to understand that I grew up in a house with a Dad that would drive a good 15 minutes out of his way to save a penny on gas...no joke! So, when I mentioned the gas prices to Ubergeek he said that he 'hadn't noticed but of course you would'! Some things are just ingrained in me and will never go away...and it makes me smile when I notice gas prices because it makes me think of my Daddy!
with the 'gas points' we've earned, I got a 20 cent discount!!
We are headed out camping for the weekend after we pick up Bean from camp, so you'll have to wait until Tuesday to hear about her adventures!! Hope everyone has a safe and happy Fourth!
And for the record, I'm 5'9"...tall, yes, but not freakishly so like the picture of Amy, Ellie, Bean, and me makes me out to be!! ;)
