up

I am up in the middle of the night.  I was not sleeping, thinking about the meetings and someone who hurt my feelings.  We went to bed early though Catholic Worker doesn’t serve Monday or Tuesday mornings so we don’t need to be up at 6.  I feel restless. I wish I had something fun […]

wafer cookies

The meeting is over, the two day meeting.  Today we bought some cheap cookies at the Mexican grocery store.  They are vanilla wafer cookies with chocolate filling.  I think the whole package was 89 cents.  Ming’s eating some.  I think we’re staying in Las Vegas for another most of a week.  I foresee a trip […]

Laura-Marie stars in Too Much Meeting

Today I was in a board meeting for seven hours.  We had a lunch break, but we kept talking like a meeting sort of at lunch time.  So I’m counting it as seven hours.  SCREW THAT!  That is too much meeting for me.  I am losing my mind.  Also, my body is behaving strangely.  I […]

I napped this afternoon in the luxurious white […]

tea

I got three Prince cds out from the library.  And a Regina Spektor. Today we did the bulletin at church then had tea with Swami.  It was good.  Then we went to the library where I wrote a letter and finished another. Last night I dreamt of being trapped at this haunted place where Ming […]

gaming and thrifting

The game yesterday morning was great.  I was an animist named Moss.  Ming was a collectivist named Ash.  Our friends were a gardener named Leaf and a scavenger called Pilar.  I had a bag of dried herbs and mushrooms and saw spirits.  We laughed a lot and got stuck sometimes but had lots of fun.  […]
