Oh Haiii Birthday

Oh Haiii Birthday....there you are again, huh?

Oh Haiii mid-20s, there you are.....errr....now.

Oh Haiii grad school homework....I'll get to you later.


So, this birthday is just kinda sittin there...you know, like my booty after a 45-min Wii Zumba workout.
It's year 24 for Nerdy April, so what? Big Whoop.
What's on my (now-shrinking) mind you ask? Big girl things like laundry, cleaning, organizing, work, grad school, bills, diabetes, doctors, etc. It's really just a big crapshoot in there right now.

Do I feel older? Yes, slightly. I believe feeling slightly more overwhelmed is a symptom of "getting older", so yes, I have been "feeling older".

Do I look older? Judging by the guard's comment at the arsenal gate the other day (Guard: "Are you sure you are old enough to work here?") I'm guessing not.

What are you going to write about on your blog for your birthday? Ummm....how about this Mad Lib, because dude, I love me some Mad Libs...kthxbai

A Birthday Lib

Nerdy April launched out of bed early in the morning. She was sleek because it was her birthday. She showered and dressed and ate some rockets as fast as she could. She wanted to get to the salad tongs right away because she knew The BF would have something shiny planned for her.'Oh, boy. I can hardly smile!' Nerdy April said. 'The BF always gets me a really pitiful wiener dog for my birthday!' The BF said, 'Hola!, Nerdy April!' when he saw her. 'Are you all ready for your birthday beer?' 'Of course, The BF!' Nerdy April said joyfully. 'Here it is!' The BF said, and opened the closet door to reveal the biggest International Space Station Nerdy April had ever seen. 'Wow, thanks, The BF!' she exclaimed. 'This is the most delicious birthday ever!'


Nerdy April Out.

Critical Space Item: Handle With Extreme Care

Someday I want to open a box. The box will be neatly wrapped up with an excessive amount of packaging. Its contents will have been years in the making, and even though it won't weigh much, this small box will represent a huge step forward.


As most flight hardware begins, the space-rated closed-loop insulin delivery and monitoring device inside the box will be sterile and stark. But as the batteries whir to life and insulin is placed within, it will become an extra appendage, an external pancreas, for this Type 1 astro-hopeful. Bluetooth connections will be made and doctors, hungry for telemetry from my bionic body, will be at the ready. We will rely on each other - he on I for his very existence, and I on him for my continued existence. Together we will make up one whole, completely functioning, Type 1 Diabetic astronaut.

Admittedly, this dream feels further and further from reality. I have lived with this disease just under 20 years now, and the cure has always been "just 5 …

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…
