March was a very busy month for our family, which translates into March was an extremely busy month for me! Anyhow, I've finished my March 365project and here it is! I think April will be easier. You can click on the photo for a link to my project. There are titles and descriptions for the photos. I'm following a timeline of photos as outlined by a lady on twitter. Here was the list for March.

I went with a few friends on a mommy-field trip to the Spode Dish factory in Malaysia. We had the best time and it was an experience I won't soon forget. We met at Becky's in the morning and got our three car caravan ready to go. We said a prayer, did a cheer and were off at about 9 am. We crossed the border without any issues (except for toll top-up cards) and hit the road. In about an hour we arrived at this little side-of-the-road pottery market.

I was really craving to know as much as I could.
Things started off rocky for me, as is the case for a lot of newly diagnosed diabetics. But, I had a good doctor and a GREAT nurse who tried to get my insulin dosages correct. She would call me twice a week to go over blood sugars and insulin dosages.
