We had the absolute pleasure last weekend of meeting the Olsen family. They are a great bunch. Their daughters are absolutely adorable. I thought it was just super that we got to meet someone from this Diabetes Online Community in person.
Jamie took some pictures. Unfortunately my camera was dead. However please check them out on her site. Of course the couple of hours was mainly spent talking Diabetes. And that seemed to be fine for all of us. It was comforting when Jamie brought out her test kit and tested Danielle. That is the first time i have ever seen anyone else get tested. It is extremely therapeutic and replenishing to be in the presence of great people, and great people going through this first hand helps too.
I feel that we connected when otherwise we possibly would not have. I love people. I love meeting new faces. I am smitten when i get to know how other families exist and let us into their lives. Totally awesome. I would love to meet all of you one day. Maybe we can all have a party together when we see the cure. Deal?
Emma and Mom will be going to the clinic tomorrow. And i know Momma will enter that building with broad shoulders and holding Emma proudly. So she should. Because she has everything to be proud of. Her numbers have been dialed in like a well oiled machine. And the way she has been coping over the past few months with this among what has been going on in this house since her DX. Wow! Iron woman.
On a non Diabetes related note....No more UPS for me. I have officially given my notice of resignation this past Tuesday. My last day there will be next Friday. I feel really really good about that. However UPS has been a really big part of my life. I have more or less matured and gained an unprecedented work ethic from being there. I owe alot to that company, but it was time to move on and do something that i have wanted to do for a very long time.
I am now a Sales Representative for a Sporting Wholesale Company. I start on The following Monday with training in Calgary and Vancouver. This was a move that will able me to spend more time with Momma and Emma. And be more involved in every ones lives including mine.
