lightning

june-2009-014-medium
A few nights ago, we had a thunderstorm on the way when I noticed lightning in the distance.

Have you heard that saying about how lightning never strikes in the same place twice? Well, I know that’s not true. One of my friends from high school had her phone line struck multiple times during our high school years. I don’t know exactly how many times it happened, but it was at least twice.

Each time I hear someone say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, I think about that and sometimes I tell them the story of how the lightning struck her phone.

I have tons of these beautiful lillies blooming in my flower beds right now.

Toto

This is Toto, my parents’ newest little dog. He’s 10 weeks old and is Penelope’s son. Penelope is my niece’s dog.

He and Hollie play together all day long – wrestling, growling, rolling around, chasing each other, seeming very happy to have each other to hang out with.

one week down, two to go

J. has been at Camp Sweeney for one week today. She’s been able to email several times and is having a wonderful time. They’ve been to a drive-in movie, she’s caught her first fish and a turtle, she’s broken her sandals and I’ve had to mail more to her. She’s taken a canoeing class and has spent lots of time at the pool. She’s had lots of low blood sugars (40, 47, 62, etc.) because she’s so much more active at camp than she typically is at home. They’ve adjusted her basal rate from midnight to 8am (0.15 unit less insulin per hour) and are going to see how she does with that. They’ll adjust it more if needed. I’m relieved that a full medical staff are on site and that her counselors either have type I diabetes or are well-trained before the campers arrive.

they say it’s his birthday…

Happy 46th Birthday, Johnny!

she’s at camp

This morning, we took J. to Camp Sweeney, diabetes camp. We’ll pick her up on June 26. She’s been looking forward to camp all year and was so excited when today had finally arrived.

As soon as we walked into her cabin, little girls started squealing and running over to hug her. They were all so excited to see each other again. She’s going to have a great time!

Can you tell that it was very sunny when we got there this morning? I used my phone camera instead of my regular camera. I sort of like that they’re different than my normal photos.
