Vacation is For Fun

We accomplished all of our 'must-do's' on our visit to Universal Studios Orlando for my daughter's 16th birthday.
She used a wand to cast spells around Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade.
We took a wild ride through Gringotts bank.
After touring Hogwarts' interior, we experienced a high flying adventure over the castle and its environs.
We watched the Frog Choir and visited Olivander's Wand Shop.
We met the Knight Bus driver and the conductor of the Hogwarts Express.
She drank Butterbeer in Diagon Alley. Twice. She bought a bag of candy from Honeydukes in Hogsmeade Village.
She carried that bag with her and sampled Sherbet Lemons, Fizzing Whizzbees and Gummy Frogs throughout the day.
Her birthday dinner at Margaritaville included a virgin strawberry daiquiri and a complimentary red velvet cake dessert.
Did we count the carbohydrates in everything perfectly? No.
Did the walking make her blood sugar drop so that Fizzing Whizzbees became not only fun but medicinal? Absolutely.
Did she enjoy every moment, sip and morsel and live to tell the tale? Yup.

It's November...Diabetes Awareness Month! My plan for this month involves stories. Simple, everyday, real-life stories about living with diabetes. I plan to tell them here as narratives, like this one, just snippets of a day with diabetes, and I plan to tell them, or stories like them, more often in the 'real world' this month when friends ask, 'How's it going,' or relatives ask what I've been up to.
