Mutter Museum again. We’re also having dinner with Hannah and her husband. Hannah is celebrating her 27th birthday (although her actual birthday isn’t until next Friday, February 13, so make sure you stop by her blog or Facebook to wish her a good one!). Quite a bit will be packed into a normal-length weekend. Kind of ironic considering we’re planning on staying local during the three-day President’s Day weekend.Tomorrow, Erik and I will be taking our first out-of-town trip together to Philadelphia. We’ll visit some friends and check out some sights, like Independence Hall, Reading Terminal and I’m hoping for a chance to see the
Before we head out though I need to stop by CVS and pick up new insulin and test strips. Sometimes I don’t realize how low I am until I’m on the last couple of bottles. Luckily, I’ve never had a problem getting anything just by walking in to the pharmacy. I use One Touch test strips and Humalog, which are very common brands. A couple of times they only had a couple of bottles left of Humalog, which they gave me and then I picked up the rest a couple of days later. But a bottle of insulin can last me more than a week, so it’s usually not a crisis. I just hate having to go back a second time! It’s annoying that our medication isn’t always in stock. I am used to picking up milk or cereal or toilet paper anytime I feel like it. Realizing that something you use every day might not be available is a little weird.
Anyway, it will be nice to go away for the weekend and enjoy the warmer weather. Not that 48 degrees is warm, but when you’ve been suffering through 28 degree days for a month, even 35 feels balmy! It’s one thing I still can’t get used to about living on the East Coast.
What are your plans for the weekend? And do you have enough test strips?
