Slush Pile

Okay, seriously, it's March. Time for the snow to stop.

We've got an inch of accumulation this morning. Most of it is slush. It's a good thing the temperatures aren't actually going to dip below freezing, or the roads would be in danger of becoming extremely dangerous instead of merely messy.

So Karen stayed with us last night. KT and Kevin and Jess brought her up, and Vicki came, too, so she could finally meet Karen, and I made dinner for everyone and we had a lovely time sitting around chatting. And we didn't stay up too terribly late, because Karen had to catch a train this morning at 6:30, so we all turned in around 10:30 or so.

Of course, the school called us at 5:05 to let us know that school is closed today. So I've been more or less awake since then. But it made it (a little) easier to roll out of bed when my alarm went off at 5:30. I put on a bathrobe and my polka-dot boots and drove Karen to the train station, then got home just about the time I usually get up and start my exercises, so I did that, and the rest of the morning proceeded mostly normally, though since Penny isn't at school today, I got to work twenty minutes or so early.

Now the early rising is catching up on me, and I'm about to yawn my face off. Maybe it's a good thing that I've started to swing back toward coffee as my morning beverage of choice, eh? At least it's shaping up to be a slow day at work.

Hi Liz,

I found your blog through a comment you posted on Six Until Me. My name is Heidi and I have a six-year-old son, who's had T1D for two years now. I get a lot out of talking to other parents of CWD, and so I thought I'd introduce myself. By the way, while I live in the southwest now, I grew up in the northeast and remember all too well those March slush piles. :)

Hi again, Thanks for your comment on my blog. :) I was going to reply to you there, but didn't know if you subscribed to the comment feed. So I thought I'd play it safe. It's really nice to "meet" you, and it's nice to know that someone else gets a little teary-eyed when another parent recognizes her child's diabetes and does something kind. :)

I just checked out your other blog. I am impressed! I struggle with my weight and am trying to lose now. Way to go, Liz!
