Catching Up

We've been busy.
Too busy to find time to blog.
And so busy, really, that diabetes has taken a back seat in our lives.
This makes me happy.
Right now I should be doing laundry.
Laundry does not make me happy.
So I am blogging instead.
In an effort to catch you up on the last 7 weeks, here's a summary, with photos, to keep you interested in our mundane lives.
Ella started karate and loves it.
It's super fun to watch her blood sugars go up when they start sparring.
Adrenaline spike is for real, folks.
Domestic Divo took me to the Santa Ynez Inn for a quick over-night stay.
First time being more than 10 minutes away from Ella since diagnosis.
It was awesome.
Shout-out to the Grandmas for watching the girls.
We organized a Family Picnic for the Diabetes Outdoors organization and had a great time hanging with all of our D-friends
Ella Turned Eight!
We celebrated by having a "Rock n' glam" sleep-over party.
Lucky for me only 5 of the 11 girls actually spent the night.
Ella invited one of her little D-buddies so I rocked 2 CGMs all night long...

And, of course immediately AFTER I sent the above photo with the text, "I am the best pancreas EVER!!!" to my fellow D-Momma, her daughter spiked into the 300's and mine went up into the high 200's.
Party pizza at 10:00pm = no bueno.
But the girls had a BLAST and that's all that matters
Ella and I went to a Mother/Daughter Camp where we ate ridiculously large brownies and cookies late at night, swam in a freezing cold pool, shared ONE bathroom with 16 other daughters & mothers and slept like poo. But zip-lining with my daughter made it all worth it.
Which pretty much brings us up to now.
We are in the final home-stretch of school with the last day being June 14th.
Which is not only flag day but is also my 35th birthday!
For which I have requested we do absolutely NOTHING cuz this Momma is tired.
Rock on, middle-agers. Rock, on.
