Feeling Blue?

I really love a rainy Friday.  No joke.  When I first learned of the Blue Fridays Initiative through Cherise Shockley’s tweets, I believe my first thoughts were along the lines of, “That’s cool.  Oh wait, I don’t own blue clothing.”  Blue jeans?  Yep, but that’s about it.  When I decided this winter, after years of soaking we feet, that I should indeed buy myself a pair of boots, the blue ones happened to be on sale and hey, they’re perfect for #bluefridays (follow it on Twitter).  Now, less than a year later, I carry a ridiculously bright blue purse and my Dexcom G4 is blue too.  Sometimes feeling blue is actually a good thing.  I will admit, there was a Blue Friday a few weeks ago that turned out to be a Blue Thursday.  I swear it felt like a Friday!


Blue Fridays can also be found on Facebook.

Happy Friday!

Week in Review – 4/1/13


Clockwise from top left: Imagine my surprise when I received a thank you gift from Excedrin in the mail!  I was a little confused about the part that thanks me for my “patience”. Was there an Excedrine shortage or something?  Maybe it’s thanks for being patient during a migraine for the Excedrin to kick-in (like I have any other choice)?  Any way you look at it, it’s nice to get free stuff.  If any diabetes device or pharmaceutical companies are listening, I like free, surprise, thank you gifts.

I’ve had 2 days and 3 nights of too many low bgs.  Last night I had the actual LOW reading on my Dexcom.  It was scary, it was there for a really long time, and even when I started to come up, it was snail-pace slow.  I joked yesterday that Glucolift tablets are becoming a food group in my world.  The real joke is… I’m not joking.

Happy Blue Friday!  New blue shirt, blue Dexcom and sort-of bluish glasses.

What do you think that last photo is from?  Awful finger prick?  A girl who’s using a very blunt lancet?  Nope, got my finger tip caught between and anvil and a rubber mallet the other night.  It really does look like a D injury though doesn’t it? Gotcha!

Happy Friday!
