happy blogaversary to me! and 6 sentence story #hawmc day 29

April 29, 2012

A year ago, I created this blog and posted my first post. After doing d-blog week, I slacked and only blogged a few more times until April 1 of this year. Now, we’re almost to the end of HAWMC and I haven’t taken a free pass so far! 😉 I’ve had so much fun doing it, and plan to keep blogging at a much more regular and frequent pace from here on out. Thanks to everyone who’s commented and gotten into the smartDpants conversation with me!

It’s a great time to have a first blogaversary. It’s also a great time for a visit from my mom, who got here yesterday to hang with us for a week. Here’s my 6 sentence story about what we did yesterday…

love, smartDpants


We parked the car several blocks from downtown and walked past stately old houses with beautiful lawns, roses, snapdragons, and gardenia and dogwood trees to get to the center of all the action. Our family eagerly anticipated this year’s local celebration and festivities of all that is butter, eggs, and other dairy products. A, Ms. Diva, Gma and I wandered about the streets of downtown Petaluma eating free samples of string cheese, vanilla bean ice cream, and of course, tons of candy once the 139-float parade began. Today was sunny–hot, even–with a very slight breeze that we only felt while standing; once we sat, the sun beat down upon our unadorned (and hence, unprotected) heads. After several hours of strolling around, even though it was in no way fast, plus sitting in the heat, my continuous glucose monitor started screaming and my blood sugar started to plummet. Even (maybe especially) on this glorious day, t1d couldn’t stand not being the center of attention.
