Wow... look at me! Getting this post done on the first day of the month instead of halfway through. This surely is a Dear Diary moment...
-When you are having a run of great numbers, you (meaning I), will freak out when one little BG number comes back weird. You (I) will then obsess over it, wondering where you went wrong, and what you could have done to avoid said weird number. Three days later you (I) will still not have let it go, and find yourself (myself) mumbling out loud in public, earning all sorts of looks from people. By about day four you (I) will have forgotten all about it when something newer and weirder happens.
-If you get up to do a night check and you have to pee, make sure you pee first, then check. Because something will always happen, and you won't be able to make it to the toilet for another 20 minutes. Pee first, then check. Especially if you're pregnant.
-The D monster will always strike when your back-up (spouse) is out of town. You will get sick, your child will get sick, and diabetes will rear it's U-G-L-Y head. You will start to fantasize about getting hit by a car, just so you can can go to the hospital and get some rest. And really good drugs.
-When testing your child at night (and you have been dealing with a terrible cough throughout your illness), you will cough just at the very moment you are closest to their ear. Stifling the cough will only make you cough even more, and you will run from their room in what would be a hilarious fashion in any other situation, without even completing the check.
