It was quite an event. Lots of family time, lots of driving, but lots of fun too.
I got some great diabetes gifts. (though when I open them I see a little look of pain in my mom's eyes, wishing that I didn't have to open things like that)
1. I got a new Salter nutritional scale and can't WAIT to try using it. I read about it on someone else's blog, and it sounded like the perfect addition to my diabetes stash. I haven't tried it out yet, and am kinda wondering where I should keep it in the kitchen, and where the "code manual" will be safe. Any suggestions?
2. I got my first set of groovy patches! O.k., o.k, they are silly, but I'm excited about them. Anything that adds a twist to the daily grind with diabetes is exciting. I changed my site last night and used one for the first time. I feel like I'm wearing new shoes or something like that. I keep lifting my shirt to look at my belly.
3. I got a bunch of banana flavored GU. I like using that for lows--I only like the banana flavor ones. Actually that's not true. I like the berry flavor, but it has caffeine in it and I don't really like having caffeine in the middle of the night. They are also nice to put in Dixie's vest because they are small and squishy, so when she is lying on her side, they don't get destroyed and they're probably comfortable too. ;-)
I'm off from work this week. Phew! I have time to try all the cool new presents and unpack everything.
Hope that everyone had a great holiday.
