Last week we borrowed my mom's Sam's Club membership card and stocked up on a bunch of things for our storage. It felt so good to get more prepared in case we ever need the supply. With the way grocery and gas prices are rising, who knows when we will need it. The best part is that we have the space to do all this. We love having a house!
Sydney is doing really great. She actually helped me give her a shot the other day. That is a great big step for her. She had a doc appt last week and things are going pretty good. We are still working on getting tighter control of her sugar levels because most days they still creep up over 200 or 300. But for the most part things are going good. We have settled into a routine. Everyone once in a while it will just hit me again that Syd has diabetes and it isn't going away. It is hard to explain but just a realization that this is for real. That probably didn't make any sense whatsoever.
One of the most exciting things to report is that this upcoming Saturday, on May 10, I am GRADUATING!!! I am so excited. I have put my blood, sweat and tears into getting a degree. (OK not my blood but definitely sweat and tears). For as long as I can remember, it has been a goal of mine to get a college degree and now it is less than a week away. Last Thursday I officially turned in the last paper of my undergraduate career. Next week are my finals so wish my luck on those!! Anyway enough patting myself on my back....
Here are some pictures from our adventures in the backyard....
