The long awaited visit.

It is amazing how you look forward to something for months and months and, then the much-anticipated event is in the rearview mirror. I was looking forward to a visit from Nana and Papa and, here we are, and they have come and gone already. It was lovely to see them after nine months. We…

Hot, hot, and hot.

Wow! This heatwave has not let up. We are in about the 6th week of constant high temperatures of over 90. Most days have averaged 95-100, with the cool down only happening at 11 pm every evening. The heat is dry, but it is wearing on my last nerve as it is just too oppressive…

and it goes on and on and on…well sort of.

Here we are in June 2021 and next week it will be my lovie’s birthday. I know that I have not shared in a while but I am in a very weird place right now. I have been struggling for months. The pandemic has taken its toll on all of us. I do not think…

Day 6 and 7

I did not write yesterday as I was having a really rough time. My sister and nieces went to visit the old folks and the photos below were the photos that my sister sent me. They made me so sad. This is such a ridiculous and messed up situation. The pictures made me so sad…

Day 5…

Nana gets cuter by the day. Look how pretty she looks with her makeup. Shit, I have not worn makeup in three days and I do not have any eyebrows or eyelashes but wear a mask and dark glasses on a walk and you are set.I woke up in a mood. The anxiety and nervousness…

Day 4…Shut it all down.

The fourth day has come and gone. I got up earlier than usual today for some reason but I got dressed a little later. I spent the morning once again spinning my wheels trying to figure out what I want to do…nothing works and nothing happens however hard I try. I do not know about…
