DAM -n- NaBloPoMo

Ain’t that a mouthful?

November is Diabetes Awareness Month. It’s also National Blog Posting Month. Sounds like a natural combination to me, as well as to many D-bloggers out there.

Yeah, I know I’ve been a slacker the past few months and haven’t been posting consistently. Honestly, our Tour of America kind of did me in…taking pictures, writing about and posting about EVERYTHING we did and saw, EVERY DAY kind of sucked out all my blogging juices. And, as hubby has pointed out, we apparently never made it home, since my last ToA post was about Tombstone, AZ. “The Town That Wouldn’t Die” was just about the death of our blog.

But, I’ve turned a new leaf. I am ready to take on the NaBloPoMo challenge – post on your blog every day for the entire month of November. And, like many D-mamas and D-papas out there, I’m doing it for a cause…Diabetes Awareness Month (DAM!). Every day in the month of November, I’m going to post SOMETHING about diabetes. I’m going to bore you to tears, endlessly droning on about diabetes and how much is sucks. Hopefully, sometimes, I’ll bring you to heart-felt tears, because tears are a big part of caring for a child with diabetes.

And, when I can’t come up with anything to say, I’ll just post a picture. Because every day is a series of pictures for me. T-Bear pricking his finger for a BG check. T-Bear waiting patiently to eat while his brothers can dig in whenever they want to. T-Bear holding his breath and puffing out his cheeks, steeling himself for the pain of that needle stabbing into him. Every day. Five or six times a day.

So, in the month of November, I’m going to post about diabetes every day.

Because…Diabetes IS Every Day.
