Peace at Last

Yeah, it’s true.

The week between Christmas and New Years is an existential void.

What time is it?

What day is it?

When was the last time I changed out of my pajamas?

But you don’t really experience a true existential void unless you have a diabetic in the family.

Or even two diabetics.

Who are both running post-holiday high blood sugars.

And are very cranky.

I solved this problem by telling them that it’s time to clean house.

They both disappeared.

One of them locked himself in one bedroom to watch the Simpsons marathon.

The other one locked himself in another bedroom to watch Bowl games.

Peace at last…

We Got This

Unless it contains arsenic,

or salmonella,

or E. coli,

yes, he can eat that.

To all of my fellow Type 1 Diabetes parents, let’s play a game this holiday season.

Every time someone asks, “Can he eat that?” we take a shot.

Oops, I already lost.

Yes, he can eat that.

I’ve got my eye on him.

He knows what he’s doing.

He’s a rock star.

Let him enjoy his holiday.

NaNoWriMo

Not only is November National Diabetes Awareness Month, It is also NaNoWriMo.

National Novel Writing Month.

The idea is to write 1667 words a day.

If you do that every day, you will have written 50,000 words by the end of November.

I’m not entering the official contest.

In the official contest you have to upload your manuscript to prove your word count.

I’m not that trusting.

I’ll do the writing.

I’ll do the word count.

But I’m not uploading my work…
