I am back! It only took me seven more days than I expected originally, but I made it safe and sound back to the frozen tundra of the West- and I do mean FROZEN – it was -20 degrees F when I woke up yesterday morning!
More on my travel adventures later. Because I was sans computer last week, I did not get to do any end-of-year blogging like everyone else did. So I am going to do it now! Oh, come on, you know you aren’t sick of it yet!
THE FIRST ANNUAL SARAHNDIPIDOUS AWARDS – 2010
(just a note: most of these awards go to myself. Either because I’m conceited or because I don’t want to leave anyone out so I leave no one in. But also because I am really too lazy to look though anyone else’s blog except my own.)
Catchiest New Blog Title: Do you really have to ask?
The Best Diabetes Buddy: Carb Counting Monkey.
The Legislation that Changed my Life: The Health Care Bill. It gave me two more years of insurance when I had only 11 months left.
Best Advice of the Year: Just Keep Swimming.
Coolest Cousin with T1 Diabetes: My cousin Savannah, who had her second successful diabetes pregnancy this year. (Yes, that means she had a baby).
Most Dangerous Handbag: Mine. And probably most of those carried by PWD women (or men, I don’t judge).
Most Unholy Digital Symbol: The Up Arrow gets a close second, following the Double Up Arrow, of course.
Best Meal I Had All Year: Remember when my dad cooked up this delicious Blueberry Poppyseed Chicken Salad? Mmm… my mouth is watering just thinking about it (although I think it’s best saved for warmer weather, unless I pair it with some soup).
Most Insane Decision: Abandoning projects I had planned at home to head West to Utah and take on a fantastic-turned-frozen internship at Dinosaur National Monument. How crazy is that? I’m in Northeastern Utah. In January. And it’s 0 degrees as I type this. Fahrenheit.
Best Siblings of PWD: Of course my brothers would win this one.
Most Creative Way to Package Blood Sugar Spike Inducing Coworker Gifts: Infusion set boxes
Most Persistent Traveler Award: I would give it to myself, although those people who were stuck in New York certainly deserve it as well. Stay tuned for the story!
Now You Tell Me: What awards would you give yourself for 2010?
