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. :)

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