On vacation

I am on vacation this week.
No work, errands, bills, or things to do.
I am stepping out of my routine.
It’s time for my husband and me to unwind.
Have some fun.
See new things.
But diabetes doesn’t go on vacation.
And so taking care of it doesn’t either.
I still prick, monitor, bolus, and check.
Change my pump every three days.
Check my sugars.
Choose foods wisely.
Taking care of my diabetes is a part of who I am.
It keeps me alive.
And I love life.
See you next week!

  1. I hope you have a wonderful week together - you sound so relaxed and ready to enjoy the sunshine. And I LOVE the way you describe yourself as active, healthy, happy and free. What a superb role model you are indeed!

    P.S. I lost you when I lost my blogroll but now I've found you again - PHEW!!! and now I'm off to click on the follow button so I don't lose you again :)
