Other Info About Me

My About Me is a pretty brief little thing and I thought maybe some people might want to know a little bit more about me. These things don’t make for a very nice paragraph, so I’ll just go with a randomly ordered list.

  1. I have Celiac. Diagnosed in 1999 in 5th grade. Sometimes I forget this is a weird thing.
  2. I have a cat. His name is Mitten and he’s an orange tabby.
  3. I live in Saint Paul, MN.
  4. My favorite part of flying is take off. I’m still amazed every time when the plane leaves the ground.
  5. I like wine. A lot.
  6. I’ve had diabetes since 1993.
  7. I’ve had a Medtronic Insulin Pump since before it was called Medtronic.
  8. My first insulin pump was a Minimed 508.
  9. My older half sister also has T1D.
  10. I was lucky and got to go to a camp for diabetics as a kid. One of the best experiences for a young diabetic ever.
  11. I’ve got two piggy banks which I’ve been putting money in since college.
  12. I’m planning a trip to Western European for this summer.
  13. I like cooking, but hate cooking for one.
  14. I’m horrible at cleaning my house.
  15. I have tiny feet. I wear a US size 6. It makes for great clearance shoe shopping.
  16. I occasionally get around to my sewing projects. Currently working on a quilt for myself as no one I know is currently pregnant. (I’ve been making baby quilts as presents)
  17. I have never lived outside of the Midwest (Minnesota and Wisconsin).
  18. I’ve been to all 50 states.
  19. My first ever plane flight was going to Vegas (as a small baby).
  20. I could almost survive on potatoes and cheese (but I sure wouldn’t be healthy).

I’m sure I’ll come up with some more info for you soon, and I’m sure there will be some more things that you learn as I post more.

  1. I think that I had previously guessed that you were from Ely or Duluth because you are a curler. Just wanted to let you know that there are a bunch of T1 meet-ups in the Twin Cities if you’re ever interested. There is a women’s group that meets every other month and the next meet-up is Thursday, April 23. Although I’m old enough to be your mother, most of the attendees are young women in their 20’s and 30’s. There is also a casual Saturday group that meets up on a random schedule. Contact me through my blog if you’d like some details and links. http://testguessandgo.com/contact-me/
