1. I had my Joslin appointment on Tuesday afternoon, and it only took me three and a half hours to get there from my apartment in Norwalk. Joslin always makes me feel hopeful, like no matter what happens, these people will keep me safe. I saw my endocrinologist, Dr. Florence Brown, and after reviewing my bloodsugars and noticing a few trends, we talked about a continuous blood glucose monitor. I would love to have one of these for a few days a month, just to get a feel for how my sugars are trending. I’m exploring the possibility of trying one out – leaning towards Dexcom. Can anyone make a solid recommendation as to which one I should try?
2. The JDRF walk is this Sunday. My family and loved ones will be walking, along with some potential special guests, which I’m hoping to divulge on Sunday night. (Here’s hoping everything works out and my Special Guests are able to attend!) If you are walking with me on Sunday and you still haven’t signed up, or if you’d like to make a donation towards Team Six Until Me., visit HERE. A big thanks to my team members, who have raised hundreds of dollars on their own fundraising quests. I am very proud to have you on my team!!
3. “Generation D.” has been updated. Note: I had never been called over the intercom of a police cruiser before. This was a first for me.
4. Halloween is a-comin’ and there are big plans here. Not only is my brother’s house being transformed into a pirate ship (much to the delight of my 6 year old nephew) but the Morrone Family is expecting A New Baby. My brother’s daughter is due at the end of October and I absolutely cannot wait to meet her. My sister-in-law confirms that, if the baby is born before Halloween, New Baby will attend as a hotdog. A hotdog on the pirate ship. I endorse this idea.
5. I love doing the laundry. The smell of a dryer sheet permeating my household makes me so happy. However, finding a small Sausage sleeping on a pile of toasty warm clothes straight from the dryer made me laugh. So I snapped a picture.
6. I laughed. And laughed and laughed and laughed when I read this post: The Lifecycle of a Blog.

Blogging. It’s what’s for dinner.
