It's been awhile...

There's been some fun and exciting things happening around here, but finding a few spare minutes to even compose a thought about them has not been easy to find. So here's a few bullet points before I forget entirely:

  • The video "I am Type 1" was picked by JDRF Canada for their fundraising video for the Telus Walk to Cure Diabetes.  They did some editing, so not as many lovely faces made the final cut at the end, but it's still pretty cool!  You can see their version by clicking here.
  • They also did a french version called, "Je suis un Type 1", which was fun to listen to.  Listening to make me realize that my french is beyond rusty and the "cookies made with poison" line just doesn't have the same ring to it.  You can view the french version here.
  • Right after Elise was in the Bionic Pancreas trial, Fred was contacted by a reporter from Times for a quote or two about it for an article they were doing on Ed Damiano.  Ebola kept pushing back the publishing date, but it finally came out this week.

  • And we finally booked our trip for Friends For Life 2015.  Don't know what that is?  Pretty much the most fun temporary Diabetes commune on the planet.  There are parties!  And learning!  And food labelled with carb counts! And friendships!  And SWAG (Stuff We All Get)! Whew... I could go on and on, but it's something you and our family need to experience for yourself.  Check out the Children with Diabetes website for more info.
So there you go... that's what is happening around here. I have some other blog posts up my sleeve, but for now they only exist in my brain. For now, I'm going to make the acquaintance of the lovely mug of Earl Grey tea that is calling my name.
