While I remain very mindful about my diabetes management (HELLO, 24/7, that’s diabetes!), you may have noticed that blogging is taking a huge backseat to all the holiday craziness…decorating the house, visits to see Santa, holiday baking and making crafts with my daughter, wrapping & mailing presents, and fun social events with family & friends are taking up almost all of my free time, and I love it.
But to help you stay on top of things, Kerri wrote a great post about Organized Diabetes, now with more Tips! that has a lot of great info and even more links in it about managing diabetes over the holidays.
As for me, I’m relishing in some Christmas nostalgia….I have a set of catalogs from Montgomery Ward (showing my age here….how many people reading this still remember paper catalogs, from which you would order something and hopefully receive it in 6-8 WEEKS, if you were lucky?) and have been perusing the ones from 1983. Thirty years ago seems like a crazy long time ago, yet when I think about my hopes, dreams, and Christmas Wish List from back then, it seems like only yesterday.
For fun, I scanned in some pages from the 1983 Christmas Wishes catalog to share with you all. Enjoy!!
