So I wasn't planning on writing a post today, but I had a total facepalm moment this morning.

You know, a moment where you want to either slap yourself or hide because you did something incredibly dumb?

I was getting ready for work this morning.  I was trying to manually enter a meter reading into my pump to calibrate my CGM while simultaneously getting my makeup out of the cabinet.

Bad idea.

Of course, I drop my makeup on the tile floor of the bathroom and it breaks.  Powder foundation flies everywhere.

So I cease the attempt to calibrate in order to deal with the mess (did I mention I was in a hurry?).  But instead of hitting the "Esc" button on my pump, I accidentally hit "Act."

Crap.  Did I just do that?  Did I really just enter a CGM calibration of less than 20?  This is REALLY BAD (insert stream of cursing here).

So now, I'm panicking.  I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS!  I immediately forget about the makeup, and turn my sensor off.  I then turn it back on, and start the sensor over.

Whew!  Now, I have no idea what would of happened had I left it alone.  It probably would have been ok.  I hope I would've gotten a calibration error message.

But I didn't have time to find out. 

Bottom line: I suck at multitasking.

Tonight, I need to stop and get more foundation.

Oh, and clean up the bathroom floor cause I didn't have time to do it this morning...


  1. LOL! That sounds like me most mornings... or, actually, that's me 24/7. Ebeaight (a smunched up version of "it'll be alright")

  2. You aren't so much bad at multi-tasking as you are time impaired. Maybe the cleaning fairy will clean the floor for you while you're gone? Try allowing yourself more time, sweet one!
