Blogcation - Not Dead Yet

It's true - I'm going to have to take a little blogcation.

Don't worry - I'll still be finding my one thing everyday.  If there are any good ones I will be sure and post them here when I return. 

I need to take a little break.  Not from the DOC - Oh no!  I will be missing you all very much.  I just need to spend some time with me.  Oh and a good book or two.  Before D and UC came into my life I was an avid reader but somehow I never find the time to read much any more (I'm not counting - Think Like a Pancreas, Pumping Insulin or Breaking the Vicious Cycle).  I think it's more the fact that I would rather be here reading blogs, writing posts or checking out the D scene on Facebook and Twitter.

BUT, because the folks at Pro Sports Communications were kind enough to send me a copy of Phil Sutherland's memoir, Not Dead Yet and I am super excited to read it I think I will take this opportunity to get it done.  Phil Sutherland was diagnosed with Type 1 when he was 7-months old and is the is the founder of Team Type 1, a team of championship bike racers. I've only skimmed through the book so far but because he has dedicated it to his mother I like it already.  To read more about Phil, Team Type 1 and Not Dead Yet check out http://www.teamtype1.org/book/.



I personally find professional athletes with type 1 A-MAZING! I think how hard it is to control the blood sugar of my little man when he's just running around in circles making himself dizzy. I can't even imagine racing a bike across the country.  A-MAZING!  So, I'll let you know what I think when I'm done.  :)

Happy "BLOGCATION" Laura! I know what you mean about not reading as much as I used to. I am more of a blog reader now. Maybe I could use a "blogcation" soon too. I think it is a good idea every now and again.

Enjoy!

And thanks for the "shout-out"! Clearly I have some "issues." :)

Happy Blogcation! Enjoy your reading and some "you" time (something us D-mamas need every now and again, but rarely give ourselves)!
