Happy Earth Day
I tried to think of what I did today to celebrate Earth Day and realized it's what I do everyday. It's so normal that I don't think of it as green.
1 The reusable grocery bags. When I started with them, the baggers would look with a puzzled stare, and Minime would ask me to leave them in the car because it was embarrassing. Now it's not so weird.
2 The next one is a bit of a secret. No one at home knows and since they don't read this blog I figured it's ok to share. I shower every other day. No one has been offended or noticed. The only problem I see is in the summer when my hair gets sweaty and dirty everyday. I'll think about that one later.
3 I wear my black pants ( I have many) twice before I wash them. The kids at school don't care. I'm not wearing anything that shows any signs of being dirty. This is a big one because my father was a dry cleaner. That was his business after going to Harvard for chemistry during the depression. He stayed with the family business and never got out.
So, it was always, " You're wearing that? You're the daughter of a dry cleaner". (good memories)

I had a low, my first one or first one I documented. A 68. I know that's not too low, but I felt it. I hadn't eaten in many hours and felt the unmistakable hungry horrors. I drank orange juice, first time since diagnosed, and ate chocolate. It was the 2nd Cheesy Crunch Gordita that was overkill.

Yeah, but after you stop shaking the overtreatment really tastes yummy!
