All Tricks no Treats


So I’ve been without a working Dexcom transmitter for months now.  I really miss having it.  Like REALLY miss.  Though some how I’ve been able to keep my sugars in check and still keep my a1c in the mid to low 6’s.  Perfectly fine.  But I just entered a study that gave me a sensor to wear for a week.  I’ll take it!

2. If your kid isn’t able to walk, more than likely he or she isn’t old enough to eat candy.  Just go buy yourself a bag and stop mooching off of me and your kid.

3.  I gave my dog a bone to occupy him while the doorbell rang.  He was afraid the kids would steal his “candy” so he would run and hide in his kennel with it until they left.  That tuckered the poor guy out.


4. I had a little boy come up to the door and I said, “Awesome! Boba Fett!” Deadpan 7 year old said, “No. I’m Jango Fett” and walked off.  Kids these days have no respect for their elders or classics like the original three Star Wars movies.

Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Halloween… and didn’t eat too much sugar-free candy if you go that route.  We all know what happens if you eat too much.
