For example, I often forget about the concept of the free shower. For those unfamiliar, the "free shower" is that beautiful point of intersection where the end of life for your CGM sensor and insulin pump site sync up. It is one of the few showers where you can scrub away without fear of dislodging something; where you don't have to worry about the pressure and angle of the water messing up your mosiac of adhesive tape. It's glorious - and I often forget about that option. (But this morning, I didn't! Happy Monday to me!)
While remembering the free shower was exciting, it apparently meant that I had that much less brain space to remember other things, like how I should grab a new bottle of test strips before I headed to work. Which is doubley unfortunate - as the first several hours of a new CGM sensor tend to be pretty inaccurate, and I'll be wanting to test more frequently than normal. (Not-So-Happy Monday to me!)

What do you tend to forget about? Tell me I'm not alone here.
