No D Day (#nodday)

Imagine a world without diabetes. Not worrying about carb counts or glucose readings. A life that is "normal."

Today is No D Day, a day to talk about our lives apart from diabetes. (Thank you, George, for organizing this. You can find out more about today and read the posts of others here.)

There's more to me than the big D.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart. We started dating shortly after I turned 16, married six years later, and had our first child by our first anniversary (10.5 mos, thankyouverymuch). I have a degree in elementary education, which I put to the side for 17 yrs. I don't regret staying home with my children at all. I feel that was the best decision I've ever made. It doesn't work out for everyone, but it worked for us.

My dream is to someday have a home in the country. Hubby and I would like to have a few chickens and sheep. Ok, he wants the sheep, I want the chickens. For now I'm a substitute teacher for our school district. I really enjoy working with the children!

I love to read. I sew though I like to keep it simple. I crochet some and taught myself to knit from the internet. We have two dogs, a cat, an anole, and a tree frog. Oh yeah, I also have five children. Can't forget about them.

Join us in taking a day off from talking about diabetes online.
