The DEXCOM wasn't the only thing that went right today. I replaced the memory in my computer. Oh yeah, you heard me. I am a self described technophobe, and I unscrewed some screws on my computer and installed some memory. As a result, I now have my Microsoft Office suite back AND my wireless printer. After a trip to the Apple store this weekend where I had to have everything erased and re-loaded, after not being able to print for over a month, after doing my graduate course homework in TextEditor last week---I FIXED MY COMPUTER!!
Oh yeah, and did I mention my windshield wipers. I replaced those on my car too---after having the replacements in my car over a month because I didn't know how to do it. And, I fixed a problem on my phone (ok--all I did was shut it off and turn it back on, but I am not being picky.)
Are you jealous yet? You should be. After what seems to be three continuous years of massive life upheavals, heartache, and bad news--I finally had a day where I recognized everything that went right. Of course I have had good days, but I have been too overwhelmed with the big things in life to appreciate the small ones. Today the small victories overpowered me, and I am glad for it. I am more happy and content today than I have been for a while--all because I had the fortitude to record my BGs five times a day for four straight months....and my handy home tool kit had the right screwdriver that I needed at the right time.
