Summertime and the blogging isn't so easy.

Well it's been over a week...there are things I could write about, but I don't have enough time to get my thoughts together. You see my friends got out of school this past Friday. Since then it's kind of been non stop socializing and you know how that goes. So for now I've only got a few bullet points to keep you up to date.

  • I'm over my pump slump.
  • Took the SATs on June 7th. In an attempt to avoid lows I reduced my basal rate a bit, and ended the test at a cloudy wonder that last math section seemed like a foreign language. I'm hoping I still pulled off the score I was aiming for, because I really do not want to go through it again.
  • Made it to day 235 for Diabetes 365, and then I just stopped taking pictures... I'm not really upset about it, and I'm not going to start up again. I never really felt like I was accomplishing the right goal/ any goal at all with the project. I also felt like highlighting Diabetes so much was not doing me any good. So I give up. I guess I should go tell them.
  • In the past few days I've been slacking a bit with school, but I've got a goal and I'm going to reach it. By this time next year I will have that diploma in my hand!
  • It's been ridiculously hot here. Like really really really hot! Seriously, I was sitting in a restaurant with my friend and the sign at the bank across the street said 110 degrees. Oh and if you don't know about the humidity of an East Coast summer just take my word for it. It's rough!
  • Yesterday, I went swimming for the first time this summer. I completely forgot about putting my pump back on after 2 hours. I got caught up in conversation with a friend...4 hours after my disconnect I was 406mg/dL. I've learned my lesson.
  • Oh yeah I also never told you my final thoughts on the KeyNote a few words. I'm not a fan.

Glad the slump is done - Ewww, the SATs, ick - Glad that's done.

It was even hot and humid up here in NH, in June - we're not used to that. But, it's over and windows are open to the lovely breezes.

I didn't enjoy the SAT!! I hope you did well.

I'm in a writing & reading slump. Summer time is here and it's impossible to stay inside & on the computer.

I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing summer. Enjoy the pool & your friends.

I'm going to be bothering you in a few months as we prepare Daniel for driving w/D. I'm sure I'll have lots of detailed questions!

In the meantime, sorry I've been so scarce... it's just summer.
