@Pool party: not self-conscious when realize Speedo on inside out. (Loins liner-layer on outside & bright white “Speedo” tag flashing at rear <–it no prob.)
Also not mind/notice Dexcom sensor make glaringly strange abdomen. Bigfoot half-anticipate Bubs insist on wear rash guard for pool party, but Bubs more concern inappropriate wear rash guard for pool (“Mom? You know? You can’t actually get a rash from a swimming pool because there’s no sand?”) than care persons observe robot parts. Likewise Bigfoot not mind persons see sensor/stare/ask but kind of wish had thought to apply fresh, clean tape. Black tinge line edge like dirt under fingernail.
Barely time for cringe re dirty tape before first low. Pump off for swim, so no need -X% temp basal. Too late (next morning) remember advice for -X% temp basal after swim. Ergo low all evening @party, marshmallows, s’mores, emergency Skittles, hot dog w. white bread roll/cheeseburger w. white bread bun. (It pool party—cookout.) Also potato chips. Also coconut blondie. Also Veggie Booty. Also two carrot sticks. Begin evening w. conservative bolus; progress to extremely conservative bolus; next no bolus, next to feed child banana w. peanut butter 12AM bc wake up ravenous after recover from low. Zooo-wee-mama.
Time for be own mother/own life coach: do your best. Or you’ll just get better and better at this. Or manifest success! Manifest holistic well-being. Manifest who cares if the tape is dirty! Manifest dirty or clean tape is not part of The Thing You are Trying to Manifest. Manifest happy summer.
So grateful for Dexcom and for summer dress w. pocket for Dexcom, and for eerily disturbing different buzz pattern for under 55 vs. mildly disturbing buzz pattern for under 80. Grateful for beer, and chair on shady deck, and adult conversation, and friends with daughters excited about hairbands and fabrics. Grateful for wedge salad. Happy summer.
