totally random

From the mouth of my adorable 3 year old, Lil Miss C...

Corn-a-ma-cob, corn-a-ma-cob!!! Yaaay! I loooooove corn-a-ma-cob!


Corn on the cob, corn on the cob!!! Yaaay! I loooooove corn on the cob!

How cute is that?! I guess I'm easily amused!

I know, totally random but I just couldn't resist sharing :)

Hello, my name is Connie!

Where does the time go??? I feel like a stranger, reintroducing myself to the friends who gave me hope and a good dose of daily sanity and that comforting sense of "same". I promise, you have not been life took a turn towards the crazy train for awhile and I just felt like I couldn't keep my head above the water.

I know that most of the stress and the reoccurring sense of being completely overwhelmed were slightly self-induced. I'm really good at over analyzing, over stressing and just plain being a worry wart! Not a good place to be when you have two kiddos with type 1 diabetes depending on their mama to keep it together.

So......I took a break from my on-line daily stalking of my favorite blogs ;) I also took a break from my blog and spent the summer reading books that have been on my wish list forever, playing, resting and trying to keep my sanity in check :) No worries, I didn't take a break from diabetes...unfortunately diabetes doesn't go on vacation! But I just had to disconnect for awhile, I think my brain cells are thanking me but I feel so out of the loop it's ridiculous!

Some quick updates, Miss E is now officially a first grader! She is about 3 weeks into the school year and it wasn't a smooth transition. She really has struggled with adjusting to the demands of school again, I know she just needs time to get comfortable and back into the swing of things. In good time.

Lil Miss C is growing like a weed...I can hardly believe that she is almost 2 1/2 years into this diabetes life and she isn't even 4 yet! Blaaah! That bothers me something fierce. Oh man, what a crazy life this little one has lived in her short years, thousands of shots, thousands of finger pokes, highs, lows and everything in-between.

Good news on the pumping for Miss E...we have decided to put her on the Animas pump! She is still on shots right now, but we are in the process of getting the pump and all the training needed to make it happen. Very exciting and scary all at the same time. I will update you as we go along this new journey. Wish us luck and I hope that all has been well with my fellow diabetes on-line community! I will spend the next week trying to catch up on all the posts that have sat unread due to my mini vacation.

Take care my friends! Until next time :)
