Dusting off the Cobwebs

I've been MIA for quite some time. Amy pointed out that my blog was getting a bit dusty, so it sounded like a good idea to at least update.

Nothing extra-ordinary has really happened since my last post. I think we've just been finally settling into our D-life. It doesn't seem to be dominating our every day lives as it did in the beginning. I mean.. it's still there of course, every minute of every day, but we seem to be finally letting go a bit and actually getting back to the business of living... ya know?

We have our first pump class next Wednesday, which we are all very excited about. Still haven't quite decided between Animas or Medtronic.

Jaxson, his dad and myself are going to a family weekend at Camp Hertko Hollow. We were given a scholarship from a local Lions Club to go and feel very grateful and blessed. Jaxson is so excited and he's counting down the days! I'm excited for him too, but it's one of those times that I wish there were 2 of me. My girls are going to prom this weekend and I won't be here to see them or help them get all dolled up. I've asked my oldest, married daughter to play mom while I'm away. She's been instructed to tell them to take LOTS of pictures and the other 2 have been told to go directly home the next morning (I have neighbors watching).

I'm also preparing for Shelby's High School graduation in May and finalizing her stuff for college.

Payton has turned into a peacock. I don't know what color her hair will be from one day to the next. I was actually diggin' the fuchsia hair though... until she made it purple 2 weeks later.

Shelby, Andi, Payton. My girlies.
On top of all that, I've also re-enrolled in school to finish my medical transcription course. I try to spend at least 5 hours a day on my work.

I am THE worlds worst multi-tasker, but I also work well under pressure. Unfortunately, the D-Tour here has been put on the back burner. I hope you all haven't forgotten me. I still follow the DOC and keep up-to-date as much as I possibly can. Please know you are all never far from my thoughts. I will try and be more diligent in posting. I'll be back to share about camp and prom early next week!


  1. Life always gets in the way of the fun stuff.

    Keep your head up, stay the course, and follow those dreams.

    We'll still be here ;)

  2. WoHOO! Good to hear from you Deanna. Totally get that "life" thing and it isn't always easy to keep up on the blogging front.

    Sounds like all is well. If you have any questions about Animas give me a shout - we love it...well Joe is questioning the tubing right now, but we do love it...never had a problem with it ... only good things to report.

  3. There are times when we all have to put the ol' blog on the back burner... life happens sometimes. We will be here when you pop in :)

  4. Haven't forgotten about you, happy to hear from you and will be glad to read more when you're ready! Good luck with all you have going on! Enjoy your family weekend!

  5. Denise!!!! We almost went to the Camp Hertko family weekend, but I had a Mom's prayer conference over the same time frame. Ugh. To think we could have met in real life!!! Soon, I hope.

    Glad all is well and that you are just busy. We gottta keep tabs on each other!!!
