Ruby is here! It seemed like it would never happen that she got to us! I just got married on October 6th and moved her on October 16th. I suppose I'm no longer a child... but I hope Ruby enjoys her stay just the same! We hven't decided what we will do while she visits, but it'll be great! Since it's Thursday, we go into town. We do our shopping today! I still haven't eaten yet today and I'm sure Ruby is hungry, too. We'll go have a snack!
p.s. I'm 21 and was diagnosed on October 12, 1990.

Ruby and I haven't done much so far. Everything has been hectic here working on our website. We're caught up now though! Ruby and I had french toast for breakfast.
Yesterday, Ruby helped me clean up the bedroom really nice and she stayed on the fresh bedding for a nap. So far, we've both had blood sugars all within range! Ruby talked about Makaila a lot. That's the girl she was with last. She sounds like a great kid!

Today, Ruby is helping me update my website! She has been naughty this past weekend! Playing hide and seek all of the time, was hard finding her. She has had two high blood sugars and one low since she's been here, but I haven't had one bad number! Go, me!

We made it! Ruby was great on the plane. She really enjoyed the movies. We remembered to adjust her insulin for the seven hour time change, and she's still doing great. We are sending her to the United Kingdom this week. We hope you liked staying with us, Ruby!
