Quick post today. Our family was playing a board game last week called Guesstures. Fun game, it's charades with a slight twist. You pick four cards that you then have to act out for your partner before the timer runs out. Arden was playing on Kelly's team and I was on Cole's. At one point Arden chose four cards, she examined them and then asked, "can I use something from my bag to help me act out this word?". We said, "sure!".
I set the timer and Arden began acting out her first word, Kelly guessed it correctly and Arden moved to the next card. Without hesitation, Arden picked up her MultiClix lance, pushed it to her finger and struck the button. She squeezed her finger, put the lance down and pointed to the drop of blood. Kelly said, "blood", Arden smiled and moved on to the next clue. Not wanting to waste the blood we tested her BG and then kept playing.
I couldn't help but to think that while diabetes certainly has thousands of detracting effects on one's life... It sure does teach you to be fearless!
