• Dear Janeane Garofalo

    Dear Janeane Garofalo, I had that dream again. The one where I’m a truck driver hauling big freshly cut down trees from a culdesac. Turns out this time there was a hold up receiving the loads.I had to go inside, it looked like Collingswood flea market on the inside. The business was family owned and a woman who I had not met before was in charge. She told all of us drivers that we had to compete for our spot in line. A race was set up, it had multiple laps around the inside parkour style while eating amazing race style while running. I did not win the race, I…

  • And isn’t it ironic

    Sick day. I spent the morning in bed until Ren’s mom dropped Serenity off before her doctor appointment. Turns out H has a sinus infection �? This cold has kicked all our asses. Renny still has the sniffles �? I spent most of the day playing stuffed animals and teaching Renny card tricks. The house is a mess, I just don’t feel well enough today. Serenity wanted The Creature from the Black Lagoon to be a bad guy and have Captain Jake beat him up, I used that as an opportunity to teach her about peace. I explained the Creature was a nice guy, had a family too, and just…

  • A cute bronchitis

    Last night I felt so sick I thought maybe this cold was more like the flu. Whatever it is I needed to go to the doctor. As soon as I woke up I called and got an appointment. For 3 pm and went back to sleep. Renny was a very good girl today, taking care of me and helping her grandma. I slept in little slices, just was totally down for the count. Around 1:30 it was out of bed, showers and off to drop off Renny before my appointment. Turned out I have acute bronchitis and possibly pneumonia. The doctor prescribed antibiotics, Mucinex, and an X-Ray. I went for…

  • What happened about me?

    Serenity seems to be doing much better, she was going to go to the doctor today, but no fever, no meds needed, seems like whatever it was, is getting over with. Another lazy day for the most part as I felt a little run down. Renny watched The Cat in the Hat and Alice in Wonderland while I did editing work. We went to the dollar store for some snacks and supplies, then on to Target to pick up Ren’s Halloween costume. She looks so beautiful in her costume, and it’s exactly who she wanted to be. Her mom is going to get her the matching shoes.  I finished rewatching…

  • Master debater

    I slept in, I was more tired than normal, I got a FaceTime call from my Serenity to start the day, had breakfast in bed and watched Space Seed. Did some laundry and then I went to see Renny. I brought her a Get Well balloon and some daisies. She was so happy getting the balloon, but her face was just indescribable joy when she saw the flowers. We had vegan grilled cheese and tomato soup. Yummy comfort food makes me feel warm inside. Work was short, only 3 hours, the tips were almost nonexistent. Ren’s mom seems to have caught what Ren had, Renny wasn’t doing so good either,…

  • More than meets the eyes

    Renny was not doing so good today, still with a cold maybe, so we just spent the day in our pajamas until it was time for her to go see her mom while I worked. After work, I had a very nice evening watching some original series Star Trek. A transformer exploded in our yard and the power went out 3 minutes before the end of Arena, so it was showering by candlelight. Played some games in the dark, and when the power came back on it was the end of Arena and The Trouble With Tribbles.  I fell asleep in a happy mood and slept soundly.

  • The wobble

    I finally went to sleep last night. Hurricane Matthew still hadn’t hit land when I finally woke up this morning. I got to spend the afternoon with Renny while her mom worked. We took a trip to Target to get sheets for her room at 934. She was super excited that they had Elena of Avalor sheets and comforter. Ren’s cold was in full force today. It always makes me sad when Renny is sick 😷 she was in a good mood and being a trooper about the whole thing.  I was a little heartbroken when she woke up she said “This is the best day ever” meaning that she woke up…

  • Waffle Wednesday

    The day started with a FaceTime call from Renny. That’s always a good thing. Then I went back to sleep and slept in until noon. After my shower, I went to pick up my favorite thing (Renny). We hung out at home most of the day, then we went to check the mail at 934 and ended up going on an adventure to switch Serenity’s 50″ HDTV to her other place. It took longer than expected because I couldn’t find my very very long Phillips head screwdriver, so I have to go get another one. I really need to clean the garage. After Ren went to sleep, she had the…

  • Taco Tuesday

    Today was a full day, and I think progress was made. It was a good morning with Serenity, we did puzzles and played. I had to finish some jobs too before dropping Renny off with her Mom. Since it was national taco day, H offered to make her Taco Pizza dish she makes. Renny and I went to Publix to get the ingredients on the way. It was a time crunch to get it done before my therapy appointment. I helped prep and make the tater tot crust. We didn’t end up getting it done before my appointment at four, so I went back after. It was super yummy. It’s also nice for Ren…

  • The Day After

    Renny and I had a great day together, just watching tv at home. It rained a lot today, so it was an inside day except my mom needed to go shopping, so we went on a drenched adventure to Walmart. It took longer than I thought it would, so I had to move around my jobs, but it all worked out. Serenity asked if she could wear her Chinese outfit again, I said “sure” and she got all excited. All she wanted at the store was Peter Pan peanut butter and vegan hot dogs. 🌭 Today I felt drained in every way.  Emotionally and physically. I spent a lot of…
