this, that and the other

Randomness is the order of the day.  It's just how I am feeling.

- Ellie's BS numbers ran on the high side (250's to 300's) from Thursday evening until Sunday night.  Then today, 3 LOWS (below 80) at school! (which means lots of time spent out of the classroom)  AAARRRGGGHHH. 

- Maddi was selected to help out with the special needs classroom at school!  She will spend her study hall reading to the kids, helping out the Associates and providing companionship to the students.

- Ben just left tonight with Dad to attend his Junior FIRST LEGO League.  He and 4 other boys will design and build solutions using LEGO elements.  Math skills will be challenged and the program also teaches presentation skills.  All under the guise of playing with LEGOs!!!!

- I won 40 boxes of Juicy Juice.  Yep!  Lora, over at 'my diabetic child', hosted a giveaway and my comment was randomly chosen.  Juicy Juice is VERY important in our household.  Those cute little boxes contain just the right amount of carbohydrates to lift up Ellie from a low.  If she has a day like today, that's 3 boxes she sipped down.  So, free JJ is super fantabulous!!!!

- The washing machine, the dishwasher and the shower are all going at the same time.  I think my hopes of a nice hot soak in the tub tonight have swirled down the drain.

- To keep this post random, here is a photo that has absolutely nothing to do with anything:

I miss my little fat-cheeked baby boy!

"Now sometimes you’re up and sometimes you’re down,
When you find that you’re down well just look around:
You still got a body, good legs and fine feet,
Get your head in the right place and hey, you’re complete!" (Boundin' Pixar Short)

I know random and has nothing to do with blood sugars...it just struck me (as it does when we have the ups and downs)...but thats the point isn't it? No matter how hard we try, life gets in there and messes with blood sugars!

Sending you lots of positive thoughts and prayers for more stability (and hoping for them here too).

I get the random feelings! My brain has never felt so all over the place as it has in the 16 months since dx.

Weird about the highs followed by the lows...there is so much going on in their little bodies that we cannot account for. Sometimes it can make a person crazy!
