I have had a hell of a year and while I may not have been nice all the time I did my very best to be my very best self. Did I say I have had a hell of a year yet? I have worked hard to stay afloat and it hasn’t been easy so as a reward for not giving up I think I should get some things that are on my Christmas list. Which goes as follows:
A blood ketone meter- please, please, please… I really think it would help me have better diabetes control- and therefore a better attitude 🙂
Ketone test strips- need I explain?
Blood glucose test strips for any of the following meters:
One Touch Verio IQ (I really like this one but the strips are expensive)
Freestyle Freedom Lite (this is the one I use all the time)
One Touch Ultra (Not as much a fan of this one but test strips are test strips)
A new service dog vest for Judah- I think I’d like to try one that is set up for a pack or saddle bags
Another new service dog vest for Judah- A mesh cape style one for hot whether, he is a husky after all…
Some money- so I can help Marshall pay off the gun that he had custom built for him and hasn’t been able to pick up because he is too busy spending his money taking care of me… I feel pretty awful about it
A car- well I feel like this is self explanatory but, with a car I would be far more likely to find a job and with a job well, I’m on track!
Health Insurance-need I explain?
This last thing is more of a wish but Santa- we’ve earned it!
Help us save enough money, help make sure that we finally catch a break, help us get a house so we can finally start our life together instead of struggling everyday to get by. It’s been too long since we had a chance to stop and enjoy each other. We were put through too much, too soon in our young relationship and against all odds we’ve made it this far. Haven’t we earned a chance at something better? So please Santa, spread some cheer to us this Christmas and help us start next year with forward motion, on the path to success and happiness. I promise to be better and stronger next year- please help me get there, help me give Marshall the me he deserves and the me he’s been trying to get back. You know where to find me (Marshall is here too!).
I promise milk and cookies…
