Here we go....
1. What is your favorite Christmas decoration in your house?
Wow. That's a hard one. I LOVE all our Christmas decorations! I love the way our house looks at night. We have lighted wreaths on our windows - all 14 of them - and a Christmas Tree on the ledge above the front door and lighted garland around the door and little trees on the front porch. LOVE! I love the wreath that hangs over our fire place. J's parents gave it to me when my Grandmother passed away - instead of live flowers - and it is just perfect because her birthday was December 24th. It's a nice reminder of her!
And since this is a D blog - I MUST include the ORNAPODS that Laura from Houston We Have a Problem sent us last year! Little did I know that we would be podders ourselves this Christmas! I'm looking forward to making some ornapods of my own this year! I'm thinking they would make great additions to Christmas presents!
You can see more pics of Ornapods and other great ideas that Laura has done with her pods by clicking HERE!
Oh, and don't forget about his fella who hangs out in our tree from time to time... A great gift from The Diabetes Dude!
2. Do you finish your Christmas shopping early or are you a last minute type?
We try really hard to get our shopping done EARLY. Like before Thanksgiving. Of course that really doesn't happen. But the majority is done early and then there are just little odds and ends to get at the end.
3. When do you turn on your heat?
Ha Ha Ha! J and I are not shy about turning on the heat OR the air. We are usually the first ones with the air on and the first ones with the heat, too! It just depends when it gets cold - which around here you just never know. We may turn it on for a day and then off again. We like it nice and comfy. And because we both have horrid allergies, we NEVER open our windows! We live in Sinus Vally - so we're all about indoor air quality!
4. Do you ever wish your blog was private?
Nope. When I started writing I never really expected anyone other than my family and a few friends would read it! I guess I assumed it would be sorta private! That didn't exactly turn out the way I expected! And you know what? I LOVE it! I love that by just telling it like it is and sharing what's going on with us - the highs and lows of living life with diabetes - that I can help other people not feel so alone! I wouldn't trade it for the world! The emails that you all send me and the comments you leave make my day! They are priceless treasures to me! And if the blog was private - that wouldn't happen and I wouldn't trade the connections I've made here for anything! (except maybe a CURE!)
5. Do you put your deodorant on before of after you put on your shirt?
Oh, totally BEFORE. If I tried to get deodorant on after I put my clothes on, I'd wind up with it all over. I can manage to get my clothes on without winding up with white stuff all over. But after would be a mess. And I HATE those white stripes on your clothes!
Ok.... YOUR TURN!
