I didn't even notice it was a new month, let alone that we were 4 days into it. I need to buy myself a calendar! Since it was a short month, it will be a short list this time around!
-Snow equals LOW! Oh my, does it ever... the day we had 12 inches of snow I think I could have gotten away with not even giving Elise any insulin. It was CRAZY! Every time we went out to play, about 30 minutes later her BG would dip into the 50-60 range.
-Elise likes hot chocolate.
-You DO NOT have to follow the directions for making hot chocolate that are on the can. I used Tim Hortons hot chocolate, and it called for 2 Tbsp to 6 oz. of water (14g of carbs). I thought that sounded a little over the top, so I put about 1 Tbsp. in 6 oz. and it tasted just fine. Plus Elise has never had hot chocolate, so she doesn't know the difference. And BAM! I just cut the carb amount in half! That's important when her carb amount for snacks is only 15g.
