I wasn’t quite sure how to approach today’s Diabetes Blog Week assignment, Diabetes Snapshots. I guess I’m so used to seeing used test strips in the bottom of my purse or alcohol swabs in my makeup case that I don’t really see anything that warrants its own photograph.

Instead, they’re always left for my husband to discover in the morning. If you look carefully, you can see the straw wrapper glistening in front of the juice box.
