You know how I said something early this week about giving Michael my sinus infection for his birthday? Yeah…turns out he had (or has) borderline pneumonia. So our house is the house of ills right now. The good news is he went to the doctor who gave him antibiotics and steroids and he’s feeling much
I received that fortune in a fortune cookie at the end of October. It struck me at the time as profound because I was toying with the idea of NaNoWriMo. As we left the table Michael asked “aren’t you going to keep that?” I said no because I’d taken a picture of it. This past
I share an office space with five guys. It started with Jay. He was the first to fall victim to the sinus infection. In fact he carried his around for almost a month. Next was Zulin. He fared better than all of us, only struggling a couple of days with the sniffles. The next to
I want a reset button for this week. This week sort of, no really, fell apart for me somewhere around Tuesday night. I went to bed with my sinuses screaming at me and the beginnings of a sore throat. I woke up around 1:00 AM, took a Mucinex D, and then rode out the crazy
The other night I dreamed that I was walking with someone (Michael or Talaura or Stephanie…I don’t know. someone) through a neighborhood. We walked past one house that had a huge pomegranate tree in the front yard. The branches were heavy with pomegranates, many of them hanging over the sidewalk. There were so many pomegranates.
The two weeks leading up to the time change were not good yoga weeks. I would wake up at 4:30 AM, roll over, realize I had an hour, and then conk out for an hour and a half. I couldn’t get up and get on my mat. I’d go in to make sure Michael was
Before we left for Oklahoma, Michael asked me if we would be doing any thing fun. I honestly didn’t know how to respond to that question. I knew that we would be spending a lot of time in a car and I didn’t think visiting dad in a nursing home counted as fun. So I
Michael has met the family. Well…most of them. He’s yet to meet my sister and her husband, my niece, or Melissa and her bunch, but he met my brother and sister-in-law (the toughest) and he met my dad. A while back Michael voiced his worries about my family liking him. I brushed them away. I
Today is the first day of NaNoWriMo. The key to staying on track with 50,000 words is to write 1,667 words a day. That’s about two, two and half pages a day, which really sounds like nothing now that I think about it. I was all ready to tell about how I planned on procrastinating.
Tuesday morning, when the alarm went off and I felt a familiar heaviness in my body, I turned the alarm off and went back to sleep. I slept until 9:30, which is something I haven’t done voluntarily in I don’t know how long. I spent the day on the couch watching movies on Netflix, knitting
