Happy New Year

well friends, 2011 is almost over.  it has been quite a year.  in some ways, i guess i'm glad it's over.

  • in january i had triple bypass surgery
  • in february i fell down the stairs
  • in march my husband turned 50
  • in april we celebrated our 29th anniversary
  • in may i started using an Insulin Pump and started blogging!
  • in june i went away for the weekend with a group of very close girl friends
  • in july i celebrated 7 years smoke free!
  • in august i had a relaxing, 2wk holiday doing absolutely nothing
  • in september, my grandson started SR Kindergarten, with less drama than last year
  • in october we rode on my families float in the fall fair
  • in november i got a clean bill of health on both my eyes and my ticker!
  • in december we celebrated Christmas with family and friends
2012 has potential.   i don't normally make resolutions, and i probably won't this year either.  i will, however, continue to own my diabetes, and advocate more.  i hope to participate in my first diabetes walk this year, and am working on volunteering at my local Canadian Diabetes Assoc. office.  i may be doing Grocery Store tours, teaching newly diagnosed Diabetics how to read labels, and make healthy choices.  i will continue to work on getting my A1c under 7.0

And so to all my readers, i wish you health and happiness in 2012. 


  1. I love the grocery store tours - what a great idea! I was clueless about labels when I was diagnosed.
    Happy New Year!

  2. You had a lot going on in 2011! Happy 2012!
