I survived camp. It was pretty good, the hardest part was lack of sleep. You would think I’d be used to that but I was averaging less than 5 hrs a night, my usual is 7. I checked on my daughter at 2am, like normal but her alarms would go off at other times too and sometimes it was hard to hear. Another hard part was getting 12 girls to shower everyday. We only had about 30-45 minutes in the morning, and 30-45 minutes in the evening before bed. But I really enjoyed parts of it like getting to know some of the girls better and I helped with the daily newspaper which I really liked too (being in the a/c for most of the day helped). I didn’t always know what I was supposed to do but tried to pitch in when I could. I did sneak in a nap for a few minutes on the last two days so that helped a little too.
Next week my daughter goes to another camp, one for kids with Type 1. I will use that week to catch up with sleep and hopefully see some friends too. My son will be at my in-laws so it gives me an extra little break.
After that we head to the beach for a week and even thought it’s our vacation, we will still be dealing with Type 1 as it never goes on vacation.
