Big stuff around here...

Big stuff going on around here... I feel like I need a theme song (hey, it works for Hallie ;).

First up... we are done with pump training (we finished early to boot).
We made our final pump setting adjustments today. I am not sure I get it but who am I to judge?

What don't I get???

Well, I don't understand how we see the obvious need for more adjustments, but not the need to follow up with how they work. I guess I just assumed we would continue to send in logs until there was no more adjusting. Confused am I?? Well... just a tad!

Either way... So now I don't need to check in between meals unless I suspect a low... that I won't complain about because we have been flying through test strips faster than the cup full of tokens at Chuck-E-Cheese the other day. I don't have to keep logs like a crazed math nut. Justin can have snacks again, I can correct if I need to... AND because I don't have to fax in logs by 1pm, then wait for the call that sometimes never comes... we can get out of this house!!! We are all going a bit stir crazy I am afraid :)

I know, I know... we could have left. But I am one of those people that has to get up early and get going... or I just don't bother. One of my many oddities I guess.

Movin on...

Sliding in second on my list...
feels like there might be a smidgen of sleep in my future :)
It arrives Wednesday... now all I need is a super cool name for it.
OH~ and more training... CRAP!

And last but certainly the funnest... I filled out an application for the Littlest Heroes Project
and it was accepted... YAHOO AGAIN!!!
Now I am in the process of looking through the photographers. I have it narrowed down to 8 in my area... I still have a lot of "narrowing down" to do.

Hope you all have a FABULOUS 4th of July weekend!!!

YAHOO! On Everything! Justin could call his Dexie, Dex. Like "Dex - The fastest shot in the West." A little Western vibe goin' there.

We had ZERO training with the cgm and we're doing fine so don't worry! And as for the pump - well, I still call in if I need to. And things still change ALL. THE. TIME. But I do think that with Dex you'll get a little more sleep! And that ROCKS!

Have a wonderful weekend! :)

How EXCITING! Love that you started the pump! Love that you are getting your own Dexie (or whatever you end up calling him)! LOVE that you get to do a fun photo shoot!

Enjoy your weekend!
