Before leave, go over every food friend might offer for lunch/snack: fluffernutter, manadarin orange, Trader Joe’s tangy frozen yogurt, tea, milk, water, popcorn. Friend look through pantry more possible: pretzel? Falafel chip? Write abridged Calorie King for reference on index card.

Review procedure w. conscientious, patient (+ beautiful) G; interrupt film starring Dwayne The Rock Johnson,  review procedure w. Bubs. Then split.

Errands: huge watermelon at farm; visit decimated Orla Kiely soap display at Target (look here–it money shot full product line); run into assorted friends/children, one buy lunchbox, one alcoholic, one school supplies, one mid-divorce, Bigfoot want tell everyone Bubs is at a friend’s house! Doing his own insulin! Only say to person w. divorce news because tantamount.

Four hours! Snack…lunch. Everything fine. 104.

Lucky rainy day, because forgot say Bubs need meter/sugar on person if ride bike/scooter/leave house. Also forgot tell hypo symptoms. Also forgot glucagon.

        Thank you for the helmet!

        The OK design thing is something I said, but it isn’t true as far as I know. How cunning!

    That’s so awesome! Maybe you and G could put together a really easy to follow little booklet – then drop off and not worry about what you didn’t say? I don’t know – maybe overkill. It sounds like in the past few posts, Bubs is just stepping up more and more to advocate and take care of himself. I think it’s so adorable that with free time, you went to Target – I did the other day too – what is it about that place? I bought purple jeans, yogurt, milk, stickers.

        except for a few things slightly important than carbs per cup of popcorn—such as the emergency injection i left behind…for you to figure out on your own. that would have been fun!
