Happy New Years to My Fellow Stay-At-Home Club Members

That's right. Today is the today. All day. 

I was looking back (here's looking at you Time Hop) at the New Year's Eve's of yesteryear. 

Take a walk with me, if you please, and be transported from 2010 to 2018!

Spoiler alert - the common theme is staying at home so this one is for you Stay-At-Home friends!

 One year ago - a mix of mimosa's at work and binge watching anything and everything with my hubs - at that time we had been married for just shy of 2 months.

 Two years ago - Oh look! It's your friendly neighborhood stay home couple! This was the year my hubs proposed to me on Christmas!

3 years ago - I had a look back at my top nine of that year - seems like it was mostly hair related which is totally fine by me. I left Gainesville and moved back to Jacksonville this year, also the year I met my hubs. That photo on the bottom left corner is when I got my hair done for the first time being back in Jacksonville and I was sitting in front of the condo I was renting. I felt like my life was falling apart and little did I know how much it would change in early December that year. A trans-formative year for this gal.

 4 years ago - the caption on this read "#newyearseve at work selfie..." - showing off my pink vibes for the end of 2015. Later that evening...I was in my pajamas at home. Obviously.

 5 years ago - I participated in a tag on instagram - the caption said, "New Year's Eve for me = watching #thesupervet and cuddled up with cats and blankets...and pjs." Yep. It me.

6 years ago - Let me just jump ahead to the caption, "If you see photos of my wild and crazy New Year's Eve...it will consist of pretty much this and painting my nails. #stayathomeclub" - I mean come on...ya girl doesn't change much.

 7 year ago - caption consisted of, #ootd at work today. My New Year's even outfit once I'm home will be pajamas so this is a much better option to share!" - Real clothes for the first half of the day (that's more than I can admit to on this current day in 2019)

9 year ago - Oh look! Me! Out on New Years!! Another spoiler here...I was out with my mom and stepdad because my mom told me I had to get out of the house. Rude but also my mom is the queen so what she says is often accurate.


That's it's guys. If you are like me and you prefer to be inside, watch the ball drop, binge watch whatever the hell you want, drink champagne, lounge with cats (or dogs), watch youtube, take down decorations, or whatever the heck you wanna do...as long as it's at home...then join me this evening because I'll be right there with you!!

Happy New Year!!

Resolutions? Type 1 Diabetes Care? Wait...I Thought This was About Resolutions....

Hey friends!

Funny story. Not really but a tale that's true at the very least.

I stopped blogging again. 50% because my laptop I was using was just utter junk the other 50% largely due to my lack of time to commit to clicking the keys for any amount of time. 

50% of that equation has been solved by my handsome husband. Not the extra time bit...nope I'm still grasping at straws when it comes to free time BUT he did get me a new laptop for Christmas??

Exhibit A - photographic evidence of said new laptop.

Okay, okay not the point of my post right?

My question of course is, do you partake the resolution tradition? Have you in the past and this year you are throwing that mess to the wayside? 

I don't remember the last time I made the vow aka resolution. If you are, wanna share with the class what you're going to try and accomplish this upcoming year?

I REALLY want to focus on my diabetic health and wellness. If you're not here, hi I'm Jenna, Type ONE diabetic for going on 35 years now. If you don't know the difference between type 1 and 2...they are immensely different. Type 1 is also called juvenile diabetes aka early onset. It doesn't have anything to do with weight, how could it, I was 13 months old when I was diagnosed that fateful day. My pancreas, the thing that gives non-type 1 diabetics insulin to compensate for food they eat, doesn't work and by doesn't work I mean...it's literally pointless to have in my body but ya know it's easier to keep there than take out the dead organ. So what a working pancreas does for a regular person...I step in for that pancreas. I manually, via insulin and syringes, give myself shots at least 5 times a day.

I'll be honest though I'm a HORRIBLE diabetic. Living with it for so long it's easy to forget and slip into non-type 1 routines when you spend all your time with non-diabetic people. This year, my goal is to take better control of my blood sugars because I need my life to be a long one. Simple as that.

I won't call this a resolution, I'll just call it a promise to myself and my family.

Share It!
