Top 5 Favorite Quotes These Days

Kerri over at SixUntilMe has initiated the Top Five Lists Game to get her readers talking and sharing. What comes to mind for me at the moment are the Top 5 Quotes That Pertain to My Life These Days:

  1. “Diabetes is like being expected to play the piano with one
    hand while juggling items with another hand, all while balancing with
    deftness and dexterity on a tightrope” – Marlene Less, via Scott’s Diabetes Journal
  2. “Every day that passes brings you closer to ‘living with’ instead of ‘suffering from’ ” – Kerri of SixUntilMe, commenting here
  3. “Warm mommies get cold pancakes” – Dear Abby
  4. “Housework is a treadmill from futility to oblivion with stop-offs at tedium and counter-productivity” – Erma Bombeck
  5. “Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing” – Mark Twain

Ask me again next week. I’m sure they’ll be some memorable saying about juggling work and parenthood. It’s just that I’m a busy diabetic working mommy, see?, so didn’t have time to track down too much custom content just now… :)

    Your post about juggling parenting and diabetes brought a smile to my face. My first child is expected any day now. I stumbled upon this community of diabetic bloggers and it’s moved me to create my own. Keep up the writing!
