A Little Treat

Today I treated myself to the spa. Something that I wouldn't normally do, but because I had a gift card on file, I was able to enjoy complete spoiled-ness for 60 minutes as my feet soaked in warm water and someone massaged my feet/legs.  It was awesome. I stayed off of my phone and just read a few gossip magazines and attempted to relax.
Artistic Spa, London, Ontario. 

This morning I woke up with two swollen eyes. Like I mentioned in the last post, this is becoming something I am used to. 'What will I wake up with next?' Sometimes it is a swollen lip, sometimes a swollen wrist, and other times like this morning, a swollen eye.  I couldn't even wear my contacts as it looked like I got punched in the eyes. Lovely.

However, with some cold compress they seem to be getting less puffy.  I still have some errands to run before Michelle arrives, but other than that, the rest of the day should be enjoyable and peaceful. Tomorrow I speak at Rainbow Cinemas as they are having an event to screen, The Muppets Movie. Vince, J and Michelle will be coming along.  I am really looking forward to speaking briefly about my diagnosis, Kilimanjaro as well as my Medtronic pump.  I am also excited as J has never heard me speak before.  Later in the week I will be speaking in Hamilton at the JDRF Infosium. I am also looking forward to that.

All in all, I am going to really attempt to focus on feeling good, making connections, and focusing on taking one step at a time.  I have a lot of things going on like I mentioned before, and I want to make sure I give everything my all from speaking to school to moving into my new apartment come the end of April.

For now, it's time to go buy some diabetes supplies... my favourite.
