Its Been Too Long

I went to post a while back and couldn't believe how long it had been. It felt like a couple of months but I couldn't believe it when I saw it had been Chrismas. Time flies when you're having fun I guess. Several of you have stopped by to check on me and I'm grateful.

Well I'm thoroughly hacked at blogger this morning. I had a entry all ready to post and was checking out my links and lost it. I know this happens, but it happened back in September too and I, like most people, simply don't have time to recreate entries gone wrong.

I had a birthday back in September. This year (age year not calendar year) I will celebrate my 40th anniversary with diabetes. I'm doing OK, but I'll admit that the diabetes is more difficult to control of late than it was say two years ago. One reason I'm not exercising as frequently as I need to. I'm in desperate need of another 100 days of fitness that several of us disciplined ourselves to do. Secondly I'm eating little or no lunch. For the most part this is OK except somedays I go low in the late afternoon. I probably need to set my temp basal back .1 on these days. The larger problem is I come home famished and as you know that leads to overeating and the challenges of adjusting for that.

I've been hanging out over a Manny's place - tudiabetes lately. I came across a small group dedicated to summer camps for diabetics. I mentioned before that I went to Camp Sweeney for a couple of years right after my diagnosis and it was a great experience. Between all the support I received at home as well as at camp, I got the tools I needed to live healthfully with diabetes for these almost 40 years. I want to leave you with this cool Camp Sweeney video I found over at youtube. Camp is certainly not what it was, but nobody said it had to be. I love their rendition of Sweet Home Camp Sweeney a.k.a.Sweet Home Alabama.

Awww.. I went to Camp Sweeney too, 1979-1988. I wish the quality of the video was better, but regardless, it made me smile. It does look so different now - have you seen the website and all the activities they offer now? I never in a million years would've imagined CS like it is today. If only they had a session for adults, I'd even sleep in a top bunk just for the opportunity.

I'll be at the reunion next summer, come hell or high water!

Its a small world Lee Ann. I know there's no way I would recognize the place now. I attended in '69-'70. No doubt an adult session would be a blast.

I saw the reunion info on their website, I'd like to go too. I just have to see how my schedule shakes out as the time draws closer.

Keith! KEITH!!!!

Oh how I missed my good friend Keith. I am very glad you posted. What a lovely surprise.

I am sorry that you have been hitting some speed bumps on the D road. Maybe that 100 day thing should start again. I was so impressed with your performance.

Thanks for stopping by George. I've been following your vlogs of late and your doing a great job... keep up the good work!

I'm going to try to get back in the habit of posting again. I almost hate to say anything because several of my last posts start w/'Sorry its been so long since my last post...' so my record is not so good.

Thanks Penny! I've missed all my frieds in the DOC as well. I'm going to try not to stay away so long.
