Happy Thanksgiving, People!  Strange, actually, to be wishing PWDs a happy time on such a voracious day of eating.  My plan is to stick to no more than 2 carb choices (yams and cranberries -- I'll skip the mashies and pie), and to use my nifty new food scale to count 'em up.  Lucky for me, the party's at my place, so I'll have my scale nearby.  Shoulda done this years ago.

Meanwhile, I have much to be thankful for:Turkey

- a beautiful, healthy and loving family

- including life partner whom I adore

- great community/friends

- the Internet, which enables me to have a "second life" involving lots of wonderful people who share my experiences in the Diabetes World (Pumping Turkey courtesy of DiabetesTalkfest)

- relative good health, despite this @#$! disease

- Oh, and The Miracle of Timing, which has allowed my to bring my BG levels down significantly over the last week (I'm dosing early; more on that soon)

Now, while we're on the topic, let's turn our attention to holiday shopping for a moment:



The brand-spanking new DiabetesMine.com Memento Shop is open for business.  (I can hardly beleive it myself).  DBMine T-shirts, mugs, stickers and mousepads look great under your Tree, or next to your Menorah.  Honest!  And they're just a click away... Enjoy.
