Middletown, Rhode Island Bigfoot favorite beach: 2nd Beach. Go every day if not too hot, not raining, not have camp, not at FFL conference. 2nd Beach (AKA Sachuest Beach) perfect boogie board, kadima, pickle, jackpot, taps, soccer. Broad. Flat. Right size waves. Always comfortable temperature air/water. May even need jacket 2nd beach when disgusting hot day other part Rhode Island. Showers. Toilets. Snack bar. Plenty life guards.
Perfect sand for digging giant hole. Brown sugar sand. Tiny grain, dense. This sand also perfect for clog infusion site. So much that on 2nd trip as insulin pumper, Bigfoot bring four spare ka-chunkers. 2nd beach = pump jam.
Wish followed advice from last time express shock re grit in site. Recap: can of compressed air. Or advice from comments on Gritty Little Infusion Sets. Recap: Opsite Flexifix, IV3000, Tegaderm, Matisol, “skintac, tegaderm, skintac, sensor, skintac, tegaderm in layers;” some of advice may be only re Dexcom. Bigfoot not yet gather energy figure out where buy* specialty adhesives; fear will be medical supply shoppe w bedside commode, flesh-tone compression socks.
Main thing about beach: Bubs so happy. Also notice learned trust Bubs come in from water if feel low. Today trot over, dry hand on towel, test, 68, eat 3 Starbursts (all independent w brief consultation re Starburst location) run back in. This probably not 100% correct procedure, but Bigfoot not check again. Trust will come in if feel low again, notice strange sensation: relaxation, put nose right back in New York Times crossword, fill in G R E E N H O U S E G A S E S. Holla.
Issue now: decide new normal pump program. Summer days very active, more than school. Except for over-hot/rainy summer day sit still with Lego, barely move, much less active than school. Today so active, probably good day for temp basal. Never think of for daytime. Ever temp basal ++some%? Need look into decrease normal basal for summer, then do ++temp basal for lazy summer day. Think now if too much basal, eventually person grow fat from life-saving Starbursts/Gogo Squeeze. Better –temp basal. If only little bit easier. Hard imagine Bubs become fat.
Other issue: rent car for FFL even though hate driving? Will feel trapped at hotel if no car? Not plan on leave much—only LEGOland—but once at conference will Bigfoot want drive to A-list burrito, five miles down road? This not seem appropriate question FFL ListServ. ListServ population very keen on Disney road trips, teenage dress code. Bigfoot more keen on hotel pool, LEGOland, maybe burrito if excellent/not too far away/not Chipotle.
*(Actually, it not so hard, can order here. $38-ish for 4″ x 11 yds—>maybe enough for 200 on/offs or approx. 40 trips beach?)
