I don’t blog like I once did, but life continues to evolve, change and get more complex. My d-daughters are now middle schoolers/teenagers. I cannot write like I did, because things become more complex, more private and just different. I don’t have the skill as many of the d-mom blogger who can write about the kids teenage years. So I guess this blog must evolve.
Post like “yard waste with a low, and “who knows” might be the new norm as family diabetes stories. I hope to tell you the story of their basketball season soon and post a picture or two. The evolution of this blog will continue, into what will take shape over the next few months.
Currently, fellow d-dad blogger and person friend Tim at williamsd1life.blogspot.com is trying to help restore the lost post of this blog. Check out his blog, because it is pretty good. I don’t have a time frame for when it will be done, but hopefully by Thanksgiving. Thank you again, Tim, for your help.
The children’s book is all but dead in the water. Two different illustrators promised results and I haven’t seen anything. I guess it is time to take some art classes and finish it myself. The wait will go on.
Life, in general, is very busy with one high school, two in middle school and a kindergartner. I work two jobs for now and writing is my third occupation. The long-range plan is writing as my only occupation, but that is many years away. Getting an MA in journalism from Michigan State is still on the table, but not the next year or two.
Type 1 diabetes advocacy, news, and research will fill the void from what I no longer blog about. With that said, I will jump on the horse again and track down stories, request interviews and read NiH again and other d-publications. I’d like to post monthly again and I guess having a writing schedule is a must. Having two schedules, one for blogging and one for my fiction writing is a high priority.
Thank you for stopping by again and checking out this little blog. Godspeed.
