I Love Bullet Points.

It's Friday, my belly is full of delicious Mexican food, and I have too many thoughts to put into one cohesive post.  So, I'm doing a list of thoughts.

  • I really need to figure out how to bolus for Mexican food.  I looooove Mexican food, which is a by-product of my love of cheese.  I had rice, beans, tortilla chips, and the tortilla around my burrito - so, a lot of carbs, right?  I guessed it was 80g total, did the math, then went to the Combo Bolus screen and gave the Okay! for a 4-hour, 60/40 split bolus.  I was about 130 (but coming down) before we started eating.  Fast forward to half an hour after leaving the restaraunt:  I'm 71 and dropping - cancel the rest of the extended bolus, drink some sugary stuff.  Now I'm 227.  *shakes fist*
  • Almost lost the CGM receiver yesterday.  (By the way, my receiver is named Jim.  He just is.)  I went out for a walk with it in my pocket, and when I returned to work, Jim wasn't there.  Turns out he was laying face down on some mulch, 3 blocks away from my building.  He was wearing his gray "jacket", so he blended in pretty well.  Is my pocket really that bad of a place to hang out that he had to jump ship? 
  • There is something about little girls (like, toddler-age) wearing flip-flops that just gets me every time.  I instinctively go "Awwww!".  I can't help it.  Also, I'm seeing pregnant ladies everywhere.  Is there such a thing as Baby Season?  Because I think we're in the thick of it.
  • I am going to be on the beach in 8 days, and I cannot wait.  I'm still trying to decide what my insulin strategy will be that day - do I wear the pump clipped onto my swim suit?  Do I disconnect and keep it in the cooler, bolusing a few units every once in a while? 
  • I get to go to a couple of College World Series games this weekend.  I think that I'm equally as excited about the sun I'll get while sitting there, as I am about watching the games.
Anywho, that's what's in my head right now.  :)


  1. Enjoy the CWS! I'll be there Wednesday!

  2. Thanks - I hope you enjoy it too! :)

  3. Spring and summer do seem like the peak of baby season, probably because women are no longer wearing layers and layers of clothing.
