The big D

I have had my fair share of big D's in my life, some good,and some bad.

My freshman year of high school, I got a D in algebra.... Shocking for me! I think that I successfully kept that secret from my parents to this day...no longer a secret, my Mom reads my blog.....well, that D was in 1971, so I don't think she will be too upset...

Another D was getting a ------------------------------------------to quote Tammy Wynette D-I-V-O-R-C-E...that was a major D, much more traumatic that the D in algebra. A good thing in the end, difficult at the time.

If I hadn't gotten divorced, I would not have met another big D, my husband Dave....who took me to-----

The Big D, Dallas, Texas for our 5th wedding anniversary....to see a rodeo, can you believe it? It was great fun, but it's HOT in Dallas in September.

What is all this rambling about? The big D, remember?

Earlier this month I was diagnosed with Diabetes......This big D has taken up a lot of my energy lately. I am learning how to do the Diabetes dance, balancing food and exercise and stress and meds. It's a challenge. There is so much to learn...

I am hoping this D, like many of the others, brings positive changes for me.....but it certainly is not as much fun as the rodeo.
