What a fun time I had with the test strip contest!
I’m glad that we were able to have some fun with my untidy testing habits!! And we also had a bit of fun with the general (lack of) quality of picture that my camera phone is capable of. 8D
So, you remember from the [...]Continue Reading →
A few more things about test strips that have wandered through the vast land of emptiness between my ears.
1) I found a test strip in my basketball sneaker. And it had a very worn look to it. Now I know it had not been there long, because like any “Good Diabetic” of long standing, [...]Continue Reading →

One thing I have realized is that for me – junk food is addictive.
Maybe addictive is not the right word to use – because if I [...]Continue Reading →
At least, not at my day job.
