As I sat on the kitchen bench eating, my (low) brain was whirring a mile in minute, coming up with ever so important things that I was sure would be forgotten by morning. So what did I do? I stopped treating that sweaty blood glucose of 43 and instead went into my home office / craft room to dig out a pad and pen so I could jot down all of the extremely important things. And, of course, the next morning it was quite obvious that most of my list items weren’t actually very important at all.
For example, first on the list was “Buy more Fritos”. The thing is, I don’t even really like Fritos but I had bought some for a get-together. And as I stuffed them into my mouth trying to feed that insatiable low hunger, they were suddenly the most delicious thing on the face of the earth. I absolutely needed to remember to buy more. I apparently also really needed to look into buying a spare remote control and new battery for the light / ceiling fan fixture in our kitchen. (What???) And yes, sending a wrap up email and submitting my report for the latest DiabetesSisters Virtual PODS meet up was important, but chances were slim that I wouldn’t remember to get it done. After all, I remember every month without the help of a to-do list scrawled as dawn breaks.
But the list item that really makes me laugh is the one that reads “Blog post about low experience tonight”. Well, okay, check that off the to-do list. However, I think I need to add one more to-do to this important list . . . . . .
“Stop doing stupid stuff like making to-do lists and treat that low!”
