Blogging about diabetes is hard. What do I write about a disease that has become a “normal” part of my life? Poking, [testing](, carb counting – all are part of daily routine. Yes, routine. And routine is boring. Boring!

Or is it? I had something exciting happen to me this afternoon. Diabetes related. I lanced a hole in my finger (routine), and then squeezed. Normally I get a small drop of blood (routine) but instead I got a squirt of blood – NOT routine. Blood all over my hand. Fortunately none of it got to shirt. Cleaning up was easy.

That’s it. Enough excitement for one day.
