That was a fun weekend.
Instead of “typical” Valentine’s gifts, this year Dayle and I are getting each other records to start our collection. I’ve been on a jazz kick over the past few months and this appears to be the culmination of that particular auditory obsession.
To start the fun, I explored a local vinyl shop and picked up this Thelonious Monk record. My ears approve.
Don’t act surprised…
“Hi Mr. Snider, we received your email and will begin processing your new prescription request immediately. Please let us know if you have any further questions.”
I am forever grateful that my endocrinologist is available through the novelty that is electronic mail. I hope the joy I experience every time they respond to one of my messages never fades.
Among the many items on our wedding to-do list is figure out this honeymoon deal. While Bora Bora (featured above) may not specifically happen, the idea of waking up over the water is too much to pass up.
Which means we’re going to “Bora Bora” for our honeymoon, and in this case “Bora Bora” is sort of a metaphor for “we want to go somewhere beautiful for a week and wake up over the water.”
I started a fresh Dexcom sensor yesterday.
This was my first calibration number.
Now that 2015 has begun, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane. Still hard to believe I will have been in California for a full year on the 4th. This time last year I was on the road with two cats and a ring. Look at us now!
In January, I arrived in California. And she said Yes.
I read Kerri’s book in February. It’s quite good. (And I’m in it, too!)
I updated the look of the blog, again, in March. I’m going for professional, yet fun. I think I’ve pulled it off moderately well.
I addressed the great divide that exists within the diabetes community, and is sometimes exacerbated by My Diabetes Secret.
June was quite busy. We bought an aquarium. My blog received HONCode certification. And the diabetes community presented at Scientific Sessions.
Stuart Scott’s ESPY speech feels like an appropriate thing to reshare in light of his untimely passing.
Stanford Medicine X happened again, this time with me on the Advisory Board. That was fun.
The diabetes community crashed the FDA, which despite how that may sound, is quite awesome.
And I started a collaboration with the folks at Symplur, because data is beautiful.
