Shopping my Yard . . . .
I’m a haphazard gardener.  Pete says I love the planting and I love the harvesting but I hate the tending.  He isn’t wrong.  But as he started tending my neglected garden, he found the garden upkeep…    Visit my blog to read more…. Read More

Mystery Date.
There was a board game marketed to girls back in the 60’s that resurfaced again in the 90’s, and that’s when I met Mystery Date.  It was a silly game where you tried to assemble an outfit for a date and then you opened the little plastic door to see if your outfit matched that… Read More

An Aching Tooth and Diabetes Stigma
I sat silent there in the dental chair, listening to the new dentist ask an array of basic questions about dental history and overall health.  Of course, diabetes came up.  Earlier, in the waiting room, there were the new patient forms to fill out everything about me. All the health and… Read More

Day in the Life of a New (Old) Mom … with Diabetes.
Six years ago, I was adjusting to motherhood for the first time during Diabetes Blog Week, and one of the post prompts was to write about a day in the life with diabetes.  My day in the life was flanked on all sides by figuring out what to do with a newborn, so I chronicled […]Day in the… Read More

Which Don To Respect?
Remember how I used to occasionally reference the “Don of Rage Bolusing?”  You know, that was mostly a term of endearment for my insulin pump. Even though sometimes, I used it to describe myself from time to time. In those times when I saw stubborn High blood sugars that wouldn’t budget with… Read More

This is Thirty.
This is thirty years with type 1 diabetes. I used to think it would stop me from enjoying life.  Now I realize that I’ve lived with this disease for thirty years and have brought it down the aisle, on stage, and around the world with me.  It hasn’t stopped me from doing a damn thing… Read More

The first time I was pregnant, the physical journey was the hardest part for me.  Building a baby, watching blood sugars, dealing with body changes … the list was long but included mostly body changes, and also a boatload of excitement about crossing the threshold into… Read More

Releasing the Kraken … Into Our Home.
#8230; he’s definitely not the Kraken.  That nickname will never stick because so far, our littlest friend is mild mannered.  He’s more Clark Kent than Kraken.  (Mixing my superheroes and myths this morning; feel free to blame the sleep debt and my attempt to repay it with caffeine.)… Read More

C-Section Party Time, Hey Hey.
There’s another kid in my house now, and he’s two weeks old as of this afternoon.  But how did he escape, you ask?  Sunroof exit!  Here is some of the how and why my son came a bit earlier than expected. That Tuesday morning two weeks ago came with the promise of another long drive… Read More

Complete.
Dear Baby Boy, Hey, you.  You came into the world at just the right time. There’s a lot to say about your arrival – the path paved by infertility and issues, the details of a diabetic pregnancy, the specific chaos of the c-section surgery that brought you into the world – but… Read More

Four Chairs.
Our kitchen table has four chairs, and for several years, we had our family of three at the table for four.  But three chairs filled felt right at the time. Except when it didn’t.  A few years ago, that fourth chair became this thing for me, like it should have A Person for it.  There was… Read More

Talking About Trees.
So this week got a little crazy in a slightly unexpected way, with our son arriving a few weeks early via a planned-but-just-not-on-the-day-we-did-it c-section, and I’ve been in the hospital all week re-educating myself on how to care for a newborn and how to recover from surgery.  More on… Read More

Hello again. Blue Care Network.  It’s me again. The guy you’ve added to “The List” on potential rabble-rousers, those you sound warning bells on whenever their name pops up in the call que or a written communication comes in. Yep, that guy.  We’ve done this dance before, you and I…. Read More

Month 8,455 of Pregnancy.
It’s been very quiet here on my blog, and this is because my body and mind entirely are being slowly devoured by the baby.  I’m nine days away from my scheduled c-section (but past 38 weeks, so could go into labor on my own any time) and my body hasn’t ever been this pregnant… Read More

Being a Rotten Patient.
Yesterday, I was a rotten patient. At this point in my previous pregnancy, I had already been in hospital on bedrest for two weeks, so this whole rolling around on the “outside” while a few days shy of 37 weeks pregnant is new to me.  The emotions I felt on bedrest were really volatile… Read More

The Vegetable Recipes That Didn’t Suck.
The battle remains uphill (couldn’t remember how to turn the stove on the other day, which is a testament to how scrambled my pregnant brain is becoming – add that to last week’s inability to use the gas pump on a car I’ve owned for over six years), but I’m still… Read More

That Clip, Though.
I’ve been using the t:slim pump for the better part of a year now, and over the last few months (here’s a handy disclosure that you should read for context on my relationship with Tandem), I’ve appreciated the new set of options that the t:slim has brought into my diabetes life…. Read More

Spring-Loaded Navel Gazing.

“Do You Like It?”

Enjoy the Silence. Or Not So Much.

Antenatal Moody Blues.
Back when we first talked about a second baby, Birdy was about three and it took us a few months to wrap our heads around the possibility of another kid.  But once we landed on “Let’s do it,” we assumed it would be a short process to conception.  We did not anticipate the wait… Read More
