Changes: Welcomed and not so welcomed

Well it's about time I get back on the band wagon.  It's been too long and my best excuse is that my laptop is dead, not dead as in battery power, dead as in "where's Windows?" dead.  As much as I despise Windows and as much as I am in love with my iMac, I do love to be able to get comfy cozy on the couch, in my favorite spot and have the world on my lap (yes, take this as a hint = MacBook Pro + Christmas).  This is why I am able to sit at my desk and do this now....(please note this is a rare occurrence in this household)....



Life has changed in huge ways.  For all of us.  We moved.  Camden started 5th grade which, in our district is MIDDLE SCHOOL.  We couldn't be happier with our school nurse.  Simply, she rocks.  I spend significantly more time communicating with her daily than I do my husband.  Going into the school year with new staff was very scary for me.  My initial greetings were "we've had several diabetic students before."  That means nothing to me.  We all know every diabetic is different.  Every 420 is different.  Every 56 is different.  Even for the same diabetic.

But this school year so far has gone well (thanks to our nurse!).  Well, there was the broken ankle the second week of school.  And the same week, the possible TIA for my husband.  And again the same week, a cancer diagnosis for our beloved, sweet St. Bernard, Kato.  Oh and the major anxiety flare up!  Did I mentioned we moved?  Ha! These boxes aren't going anywhere anytime soon!  We contemplated on our new place far too long and we have no idea why....this is our wake up call every morning....




The ankle is doing much better, the boot comes off tomorrow.  My husband thankfully did not suffer a TIA as thought and my sweet Kato - I have no words to describe the love, happiness and joy she brings to us and the hurt that is soon to come.
