But now i am back!

Things are going really great right now. The kids are doing GREAT D wise. The last endo appointment went so very well.
Both of thier a1c's dropped. WOOOHOOOOOO
Adam has started to rebel against diabetes again, it comes and goes. SO now i have to be more in his face about it.
Also Adam has been accepted in to a magnet program for 9th grade thru high school, MOA (marine and oceanographic academy) . Only 2 kids from his school got choosen and there are only 100 spots in the entire program. He will start there next year, that is if he even passes 8th great........we are keeping our fingers crossed !!

Tay is doing good too.

I got my new tatoo for my b-day , i will post a pic as soon as possible. Can anyone guess what it is??? ok fine i'll tell ya.

Its a diabetes awareness ribbon with Adam and Taylors name around it. I had it done on march 8th and the JDRF walk for the cure was on the 17th so i got to show it off to people who understand. I should have gotten it on a more ,ummm,decent part of my body....... i went around all day flashing my boob for the world to see. OH WELL everyone liked it !!!

I am finding out the my soon to be ex-hubby is making a great EX. Much better than he did at being a hubby. And i am looking for a new job( time i grow up and figure out what i want to be when i grow up) .

    Can't wait to see the tattoo! I'm so anxious to get some more done, just can't pay for them quite yet.

    awesome update! Funny, I just checked your blog earlier today after following a tattoo link on a blog that I found off of My Beloved Monster and Me. Small and circular world, eh?

    I hope you are doing well and that your kids are too. Although you have not posted in a while, I thought you might take a minute to help out the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) with the World Diabetes Day campaign when you have the chance.

    Here's how and why:
    We are in the midst of our preparations for the first UN-observed World Diabetes Day ( on 14 November this year, and I wanted to ask you if you would like to help us to spread awareness of this worldwide event and the theme we have chosen for it this year - Diabetes in Children and Adolescents.

    It is estimated that over 200 children develop type 1 diabetes every day and there's no question that the disease often hits disadvantaged communities the hardest, and that children in the developing world can die because their parents are unable to afford medication. In many countries diabetes is still considered an adult disease and as a result can be diagnosed late with severe consequences, including death. Even after diagnosis many children experience poor control and develop complications early.

    This is why one of our key objectives for World Diabetes Day this year is to double the number of children covered by the Life for a Child Program - We also want to encourage initiatives that can help to reduce diabetic ketoacidosis (diabetic coma) and to promote the sort of healthy lifestyles which can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes in children.

    A version of the diabetes circle, the icon we used for our Unite for Diabetes campaign has now been adopted for World Diabetes Day and we have produced a number of web banners that you can view and download here

    The way in which you can help us spread awareness of World Diabetes Day is to add one of the banners to your own blog, which we would really appreciate.

    The UN's World Diabetes Day Resolution (61/225) was really just the first goal of an ambitious campaign that we have been leading. This is the first time a non-communicable disease has been recognised as a serious threat to global public health and we are hoping now to further raise awareness globally of the disease that is predicted to contribute to 6% of the world’s mortality in 2007.

    If you would like to know more about the UN Resolution and our plans for World Diabetes Day this year, just drop me a line at and I will get back to you with more information.

    Many thanks,
    Stephanie Tanner
    IDF - Communications Assistant

    7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
