Well, finally, holiday time is approaching once my hubby lands back in Canada after a trip to Isle of Man. Over the next 3 weeks we are going to finally get to give our 1984 30' Catalina sailboat a test sail into the waters of Lake Ontario (the video link above is actually on Lake Ontario outside of Rochester, NY). You would never know that a) I'm not a big lover of water; b) sink like a blob of lead in the water; c) get really scared when the winds are more then 20 knots. I go out on the boat - putting those thoughts aside - and just DO IT (isn't that a Nike commercial?).
I do many things that perhaps if I didn't have diabetes I would not do. Many of you are like myself, being told as youngsters that we wouldn't live past 40 - and for myself - being told this as a teenager after DKA episode - it made me pull up my socks and start to stock pile as many adventures into what I thought would be a short life span on the Big Blue Marble. I'm still trying to try things that make me slightly scared, not sure why, but I do.
So, for those of you who have given me your cell numbers so that they can hopefully meet up with Jenna's Journey - come aboard perhaps for a drink - chat - a sail - it will be wonderful to finally get to meet you in person! I think that's the one thing I'm looking forward to on this trip, meeting other diabetics that I've corresponded with over the years since I started to blog here at Diabetes1.org and other areas within D-OC.
And no, I'm still not connected back onto my pump. I may bring it along, but I'm still not sure. MDI (multiple dosage injections) are still working out fine for me - " don't rock the boat baby " as the saying goes.
So, look out for this boat below - and you'll know we're coming ashore to raid your town - arrrhh - parrot (I mean cat) on my shoulder - arrrhhh!!!
