The girls have been out of summer camp and freewheeling, awaiting the start of school for 2 weeks now. Mom's list of entertainments and distractions is severly waning... Seemed like a good time for a little diabetes-inspired Enlightenment:

Glucose testing --

How I procrastinate.

What? I'm not eating yet.

Counting the carbs

of a large bowl of cereal.

Too much, too much.

On a summer's day,

I inject.

Will there be a bruise?

Round, sweet tablets,

in my mouth

Not the dessert I dreamed of.


And a special nod to my favorite "Excuse Haiku" from Will Femia of What I Clicked:


My blog calls to me.

How can I avoid working?

Let me count the ways.

Ah, yes. That, too.
