Disappointments

After all the excitement of yesterday, today was quite a downer!   TJ received his pump yesterday and when I tried to schedule his class to actually be able to start using his pump (with high hopes of having him on it before our vacation this summer) I was told they can’t get him in …

Three surprises!

I’ve been so tired and busy I haven’t even known what to write about when I did think that I should be blogging still. With two sick boys, two jobs and a house to maintain it all gets very crazy. But I know what I want to share today and its good news! J TJ’s …

A day of family fun!

Why I’ve begun (Part 2)

On Tony’s first day off during my spring break, we planned to go to the zoo as a family. I called and scheduled an 8am appointment for TJ to have his blood sugars checked (thinking that I was just being paranoid) and we’d go on to the zoo after the appointment. We woke up early …

Why I’ve begun

I’ve never been a “blog” kind of person, in fact I have only ever read one persons blog. As much as I’ve enjoyed reading her blog I never had the urge to write one of my own until recently. I’m not sure why I have this urge all of a sudden unless I’m being guided …
