Dblogweek 2017 – More Than Diabetes

Lets wrap up the week by sharing a little more about ourselves, beyond the chronic illness we or our loved ones live with.  Share an interest, hobby, passion, something that is YOU.  If you want to explore how it relates to or helps with diabetes you can.   Or let it be a part of you that is completely separate from diabetes, because there is more to life than just diabetes!  

When I’m not dealing with diabetes care, fighting with insurance for diabetes supplies and worrying about diabetes in one way or another I’m a mother of 3 amazing kids. I love watching my kids play sports. No matter the sport or how great they are, I enjoy watching them because they are doing their best and they are having fun.

I enjoy doing crafts of all kinds.  My grandmother taught me to sew when I was younger. I taught myself to crochet and I’m trying to figure out how to knit. Beads, weaving, paints, etc. it’s all fun to play with and create.

I love animals and nature. We have a lot of pets. Lovebirds, cats, fish, turtles, bearded dragon, and a dog. It makes my house a zoo. If I could, I’d have a pet cow. I love cows. They are so amazing and beautiful.

I have multiple feeders outside for different birds. I enjoy watching the birds visit the feeders.  I’ve had hummingbirds visit my yard for about 6 years now. This year was the first year I’ve ever seen a piliated woodpecker. I had Baltimore Orioles visit my yard this spring for the first time.

I enjoy gardening. Flowers and vegetables, I just don’t have the time to be able to maintain a vegetable garden anymore.

I have an open door. Anyone is welcome.
