Today is no D-Day. No talk about the D-word here or on the Facebook page for our Diabetes Light community or in DOC! No D-Day was started by George Simmons of Ninjabetic. Check out his post here - this is where you can also share a link to your post for today. I think this is a terrific idea as our lives are about SO much more than D. I am happy to take part. Thanks George for creating this new and fun way for us to learn a little bit more about each other!
Greetings! I am back after a long and busy month that took me away from my writing. It has been a stressful time – but I made it through!

I’m happy to be back on the saddle again! Happy Spring to you!
