We went out to dinner on Friday night with another family and boy did I mess up.. lol There were a total of 5 little boys all between 5y/o and 8y/o so that right there should set the tone... HAHAHAHAHA I thought I was prepared. I had my Calorie King book, 3 different apps on my phone and a general idea of menu options for my son. My first mistake was going to the ladies room before ordering. I came back and both my boys already had a soda in front of them and my BFF took the liberty of ordering a ton of appetizers.....Cheese Fries, chips and salsa and fried mushrooms Now I am in no way upset with her..... She was doing our "NORMAL" routine, pre-diabetes..... At least she remembered my margarita... LOL I said to myself ok.... I think i can, I think i can, I think I can.....pulled out the book and apps and well..... I couldn't.... LOL My DH wasn't there yet (as he was meeting us from work) and he is my "math god"..... I got so overwhelmed between 5 boys acting like 5 boys do and all this food coming..... i could feel the tears coming and believe me I have been trying to hold them back for 2 weeks now.... the damn broke and I lost it..... right there during Friday Happy hour in a packed restaurant.... 2 weeks of all of the emotions that you feel right after DX. Right as the first tear fell my BFF realized what she had done and together we sobbed.... right in the middle of my most favorite local hangout in front of probably 100 strangers.... HAHAHAHA The staff quickly came over asking what was wrong, between wet, snotty sobs I tried to explain, the owner came over with a box of tissues and a hug, offered to take back all the food and start over. I finally stepped out side, pulled up my BIG GIRL PANTIES and tried to think. The only solution that I could come up with was this: I knew that Jake was going to have a boat load of carbs so I decided to give him 9 units of his novolog and then I would just correct him as needed...... GUESS WHAT????? It worked (kinda) lol..... It took until the middle of the day Saturday for his levels to stay steady in the range we needed him, but in the end it was all ok!!!! By the end of our dinner we were getting ready to leave and the manager came over and told us that our entire meal was on him. I told him that was not necessary and he told me that if he could add a little sunshine to a few dark days then Yes is was necessary...... People amaze me!!!!! There is so much good in this world!!!!!!! Sorry for the rant, but I just felt it was too comical and too sweet not to share!!!!!!
