Spokane Golf Show

The Spokane Golf Show runs Feb 15-16 at the Convention center.

Today started out like any other day made the kids breakfast: eggo waffles, bananas, and  yoplait cherry yogurt. I ran to Albertsons to grab snacks  form the basketball team so I got them orange gatorade (cause their jerseys are orange) and oreos. I went with oreos because a child on the team has a peanut,  or tree nut allergy and I heard that those were the best snacks for kids with allergies. Off we went to the basketball game for my son who is in the second grade. He played amazing today, his entire team played awesome. Although the ref doesn't keep score in YMCA the parents and kids usually do anyways. I don't want to brag or anything, but we pretty much smoked the other team. After an amazing game we had some kids to drop off from the team, then ended up going home and getting ready to go out to lunch. We ended up going to Buffalo wild wings with some friends and it was really good. I had a salad (good choices on Weight Watchers, right) and my husband had hot wings and the kids had hot dogs and fries.

After that we headed to the Spokane golf show it was pretty darn cool I think it cost $10 a piece or something to get in (kids are free) and there so many things to do there's wine tasting, beer tasting, golf putting, and tons of free things. The First Tee was there giving away free golf clubs to all the little kids. You even go a free round of golf just for going. There was just so much to do there.  Novus Glass there who had a "break the glass challenge". Three golf shots for five dollars, and I saw a couple of people break the glass! It was a lot of fun listening and seeing the glass shatter. I was also told by the owner of Novus Glass, Matt Anderson, they'll be donating all the processes. What a stand up guy! I did decide to do some wine tasting and beer tasting so I got a package of six sampling tickets for $10. I had some really great porter beer from the No-Li brewery and a couple of others. I think we must have spent two or maybe even three hours there.

I was really hoping to pick up a set of set of clubs at the show but we were to occupied with the 4 children ages 8,7,5,4. 3 boys and 1 girl.

I'm really glad I went to the show this year with the family. It was a lot of fun and I could have stayed even longer. I will definitely go back next year.

Last but not least I was so excited to see that "House of Cards" season 2 was ready to view on Netflix . I'm already on my third episode and I can't wait to watch the rest now. My other Netflix favorite is Oranges the New Black.  I guess it's to premier on June 6, 2014. I can't wait!!!

How did you know your child had diabetes? Know The Symptoms (It Could Save a Life)

How did you know your child had Type 1 diabetes? Parents of children with diabetes will hear this question asked a million times. And each time you tell your story the story gets shorter and shorter. You begin to leave out details. Details that may one day save another child's life. I wrote this for a couple of reasons. The first reason was to document the details and help other families who are searching for answers to unexplained symptoms. The second reason was to really get my emotions off my chest, and reflect.

December 30, 2016 is a day I will never forget.  This date will now be forever know to us as Carter's "dia-versary."This was the day my seven year old son Carter was diagnosed with Type one Diabetes. I still tear up when I say or even write those words... my son was diagnosed with T1D. It all kind of happened so fast really. It was Christmas break 2016 and the kids were home for a couple of weeks. Things were normal as usual, stress right before a holiday,…

Basal or Bolus. What's the difference?

Basal or Bolus. What's the difference?
Where did the term basal and bolus come from? Furthermore, what the heck is the difference?
Being new to diabetes you start to hear new terms that you're unfamiliar with like basal and bolus but the basal we're talking about isn't the kind you cook with (that's basil). 
If you're like me, you kind of feel stupid asking the question because everybody around you seems to know the difference between basal and bolus. You may hear a nurse or doctor say things like "I think we just need to increase your basal." And I'm thinking... which one is that, because I'm looking at NovoLog and Levemir? You don't ask the question but you keep picking up on clues of what this may mean.
I'm going to make it simple for you. Basal and bolus are exactly the same thing, but different. Ok, not so simple. Basal and bolus are terms used for insulin injections. The basal is the long acting insulin that is "always" run…

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day!!
