They don't tell you that diabetes management includes a lot of time suckage.

waiting for a number
waiting at the pharmacy
waiting in the doctor's office
waiting on the mail order
waiting for a carb count
waiting to eat
waiting for the pump prime
waiting for an update text
waiting for better tools
waiting for Java to load on Carelink
waiting for uploading
waiting for my eye twitch to end
waiting for sleep
waiting for new Netflix episodes
waiting for the emergency we fight to avoid
waiting for a lower number
waiting for a higher number
waiting for the chest rise of a sleeping child
waiting close by
waiting fighting for a cure

Only relevant to this post because of the title.
And I like Green Day.
And it's my post.


  1. The waiting makes up for the regular life we are living too!!

  2. I love that waiting for Netflix episodes made the list. Waiting for Season 2 of HOMELAND over here!

    1. Just finished Breaking Bad and was excited to start Homeland. I have to get Homeland on disk from Netflix and what does that Roo do? She snuck a movie ahead in the queue! So no Homeland for the weekend. Darn kids!

  4. Yup that about sums it up. Not the waiting place Dr. Seuss had in mind "The Waiting Place…
    …for people just waiting.
    Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to goor the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a
    Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow.
    Everyone is just waiting.
    Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite or waiting around for
    Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a sting of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
    Everyone is just waiting.
    NO!That’s not for you!
    Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.
    You’ll find the bright places
    where Boom Bands are playing."
    I want to escape the waiting place.
