The other day I had a lot of memories come rushing in and I want to make them fit here. The reason they fit, they have nothing to do with diabetes.
I got to work the other morning and Girl Genius & Mom Genius were sitting at the table eating breakfast. Girl Genius was wrapped in a fleece blanket. I remember sitting with my mother at our breakfast table one morning, when all of a sudden we heard lots of pounding upstairs and then all of a sudden Fluffy came rolling down the stairs. We had a little beagle, Rags, who was jealous of Fluffy and would "attack" him any chance she got. This moment, while seemingly annoying, also funny & impressive because Fluffy was definitely bigger than Rags.
This week has been kind of rainy, and the other day Girl Genius & I were walking to pick up Boy Genius & a friend from school. We were bundled up in our pink raincoats, our boots, and we had a big red & white umbrella. Unfortunately, this umbrella wasn't quite working correctly so every so often, it would collapse down and we'd get a giant puddle dumping down on us. None of us were really excited about it, but I was in a good mood despite the rain, so I said "It's an adventure!" It reminded me of walking home from the bar with my roommate in college and it started to rain. We took off our shoes & started dancing in the street. It wasn't about the rain, or the people, or anything else. It was just about enjoying the moment, no matter what was "in the way."
