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.
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...
