Anything Else

Focus on email replies
Scroll through the newsfeed
Fix snacks in red fiesta bowls
Line up dinosaur nuggets for dinner
Fill Jack’s sippy cup with juice
(It’s just a test)
Sip of wine
Unload the dishwasher
Normal tasks distract
(T1Ds have twice the risk of cervical cancer)
Fold the laundry
(Other risk factors under my belt:
Weakened immune system;
Long term use of the pill;
Having babies)
Read my new book:
“Ways to Disappear”
Put the babies to bed
Pick up sticks as the sun goes down
Imagine myself bald
Fall into restless sleep
Wake up
Pretend to be tough.
“You’re not that tough you know.”
I know, babe.
I know.
