Cigarettes, Balls, and Mice.

Week 3 and still going strong. No smoke for me!

Soccer started up again this weekend. Both kids did a great job and we saw little “O” playing her very first soccer game. She was having an awesome time and looked well. It was great to see her running around and having a blast. No one could tell that the “D” snuck into her life. It was a great day.

We are gearing up for our first ever “real” family vacation. We are leaving Friday night for an 8 day stay at Walt Disney World. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there many moons ago and now we get to return with the kiddos. We are very excited. We have taken many small weekend excursions but this is the first real vacation we have ever been on together. We are very excited. I can hardly sleep already and I still have several days to go before we get to trek all over Mouse land. It is going to be so much fun.

Other then that, things are pretty good. Master P has been behaving himself despite the lack of bling and my Diabetes has been pretty nice to me. Just sort of lurking in the background so hopefully that will continue through our trip. My sister turned me onto a great website about traveling to WDW with Diabetes. It was very interesting. You should check it out if you are ever heading down there.

If any of you have been to WDW and have any tips please let me know. I would love to hear from you.

I have a WDW tip for you...don't burn a hole in your wallet, LOL.

seriously, Jeff and I did a trip pre-kids and we had a blast! Now it's time for us to take the kids...when they're older.

Have fun! And congrats on 3 weeks :)

You're on a roll - just let it keep gathering momentum.
So glad to hear little O is doing well - sometimes I think kids are much more adaptable than us grown ups.
Have a great vacation - I hope they still have that cup & saucer ride.

Thanks for your comments on my blog.
(I appreciate them..)
Congrats on quitting smoking(are you for hire as a motivational speaker, my coworkers could really use one).
Have a great vacation-WDW shouldn't be too miserably hot, now that it's Sep.

I was at Disneyworld in August and I misplaced some of my pump supplies so Minimed had to overnight them. That won't happen to you, so my advice is to make sure you have a frig in your room because that is not automatic. Also, don't plan to carry your insulin around the park for you because it is still VERY HOT in Florida. I know CA in September and now I know Florida in September... it is HOT!!!
Like the Quaker Oats guy says "Check your blood sugar and check it often!"
Have Fun!
