A weekend review.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did. It was tiring and slightly stressful, but I made it through. I spent all of Friday evening working on the front of 12 t-shirts for my JDRF walk team members. Procrastination is one of my terrible habits. I was up until 1AM working on them, and I'm still paying for that lack of sleep. I woke up early Saturday to clean the kitchen floor, vacuum, and set up for the party. We were expecting about 6-7 of my friends, but unfortunately only 4 could make it. We had a great time chatting about the boys we are friends with and their lack of social ability. We watched Juno for the millionth time. I told them about my blog and that I would be meeting 2 people who also blog about diabetes at the walk. They thought it was so cool that I actually have a bit of a following. I didn't give them the blog address because I'm not that vocal about having Type 1 Diabetes in my everyday life, but who knows maybe they'll find it some day. I like to let people into this side of my life very slowly. We finished almost all of the shirts, and I was left with the responsibility of completing the ones that we didn't get to. Sunday I worked on the remaining ones and now I have 3 left. It was a very productive weekend!

This week is going to pass by very quickly. On Friday we're going to New Jersey for my cousin's first communion, and we'll return late Saturday so we can make it to the walk on Sunday. Who knows when I'll have time to blog between school work and last minute prep for the weekend.
Have a good week!

I must tell you, that I also don't let people in on "this side of my diabetes life". As we all know, people already judge us, and I don't always do a perfect I don't want people (who truly just care) to bug me even more than they do. My husband knows where to find it, but that is all. You are SO BRAVE to have the courage to write about your experiences. At your age, there is no way I was willing to put myself out there like you do and you are encouraging so many other young people with diabetes to do well! I might be 10 years older, but I am encouraged by you every day =:~)

Suzanne, I don't even know what to say. I hope that a thank you for those kind words is enough!

Ditto what Suzanne said. I would have been terrified at your age to invite people behind the curtain, as it were. Glad you had a good weekend, I love the photos!

Jillian, the shirts are just so cute! Definitely worth the lack of sleep.
