Quarter century

I'm coming round to my 25th birthday this Sunday. Shortly after my one year blogging anniversary will arise, followed by my two year anniversary with the 'betes. In honor of that anniversary, I've signed up to run my first 5k. It's just two days after the anniversary of going into intensive care and having a friend call my parents, over 1,000 miles away, to tell them their daughter was in the hospital and now has type 1 diabetes. But I'll wait another month to post more about that.

This week I'm busy with job number 1 and job number 2, as well as a hair cut, laundry, brewing our 6th batch of beer, hair cut, working out and getting ready for my boy to arrive on Friday night. I've been so happily busy lately that my diabetes has been on the back burner in my mind. My blood sugars have been average enough for me to put the 'betes back there, so I'm happy with that. The steady exercise for the past month or so has really helped to level things out. Working out 3-4 times a week makes me feel so damn good!

In sad news, my iPod bit the dust. I bought it just over 1 year ago (read: my warranty is no longer!), had to replace the whole thing (for free!) when it crashed about 6 months ago and, low and behold, it's crashed again. All attempts to fix it on my own have failed. $300 down the drain. I won't buy an apple product again. And what am I supposed to do when I go work out?! I still plan on visiting the apple store to harass someone about this... But for the time being I'm sadly without music.

T-- Happy Birthday!

I hope you do something fun this weekend...

On your iPod-- what model do you have?

(Just curious because Ryan's company gave employees a free iPod for a bonus this year-- he loves the thing, so I'm hoping his won't bite the dust as well)

I have the 20gb iPod and it is 6 months old now... Hopefully I just have bad luck and Ryan's will be fine! :)

Happy Birthday, Tek!!!

I'm sorry about your iPod. I just bought my first Apple product (the Nano) and so far so good. But I've heard mixed reviews on the things, so I'll let you know if I end up tossing mine off a bridge.

And I'll be in your neck of the woods on Wednesday, as Chicago is my two hour layover en route to LA. Any suggestions on ways to pass the time at the Chicago airport??

I'd recommend a good book! Otherwise there's not much to do but buy over priced food... :)
