Processing Times May Vary

Over the past 2 days, I've contacted both Tandem and Dexcom.  2013 is a year of New Diabetes Gearstuff here at Dorkabetic. 

Now I just need to wait, wait, wait on processing and companies contacting my suppliers.  Then I will wait, wait, wait on shipping.  I am not the greatest at being patient about such things.  Here is an approximation of what it looks like when I am waiting for something via delivery [USPS, UPS, FedEx, specific responses to emails, etc]:

Found via Google Image Search via some awesome person at

Here's hoping the waits aren't too long.  And don't worry, readers o' mine, I will certainly have plenty to say about my new diabetes "toys" when they arrive.  I apologize in advance to anyone without diabetes in my life for all the yammering on I will surely be doing about all my new gadgetry, but hey, listen in.  You might even learn something.

Let the mailbox checking begin!

Self-Portrait Saturday: Cat Hat Edition

"What do you expect?" I said to a friend after bumbling through an answer to one of his questions. "I'm a 30-year-old woman in a Hello Kitty hat!"

And I look cute in it too.  Bam.

Like a...Boss?

Do you ever get that proud yet somewhat reluctant feeling when you make a bunch of necessary doctor's appointments that you've been putting off?

That's what today is like for me. 

If I can top today off with printing up a log of numbers for my endocrinologist appointment tomorrow, I think I am officially a boss. 

Healthwise, though, I am long overdue for some of these things, and others I probably just need in general.  I spent this weekend sick, and it was a bit scary at times, but that is a post I shall make for tomorrow.
