When I walked in the door the other night, I had a package from my insurance company. (Secretly, I wanted them to have read my mind and have it be a Dexcom.) But I digress.

This is my new diabetes toolkit. I have kept it in the bag I bring to work to read during naptime (even though that’s usually when I catch up on blogs, write my own blog, be a twitter addict all while cleaning up after the kids and potentially cooking their dinner). I didn’t look at it until yesterday. The only thing I noticed before that was that there was a pedometer. I thought this was kind of cool. I walk a lot at work, so I was thinking of getting one, but there are more important things in life for me to spend my money on. (I digress, again.) Today as I was waiting to pick up Girl Genius, I started reading the letter that was included in the folder. I read this sentence and I started laughing. I grabbed my phone and tweeted it (clearly) and then I tried to read the rest of the paper. Now I know that I’m still a “new” insurance person; both understanding and a member, but this still makes me laugh. I got some pretty great responses and they all made me laugh. But beyond that first sentence, everything I’ve seen is pretty sweet. I took about 6,000 steps yesterday (which included walking the wrong way to the Frog Pond with Girl Genius). I got a new log book (with not nearly enough space for me to record all my BGs for every day), but it has different tid-bits of information for every week. There is information on keeping my feet healthy, which includes a magnet so you can put it in a place where it won’t get lost. And last, but not least the Healthwise Handbook.
