heat exhaustion

Yesterday I got heat exhaustion.  It was a terrible feeling.  Got a ride home and it took so long for me to cool down.  I was afraid.  Also had the worst headache.  I got woozy and weird.  I started talking to myself, giving myself instructions and encouragement. Drank most of a cold ginger ale, took […]

praying for pizza

For a long time I didn’t sign internet petitions, thinking they were pointless.  But then recently I signed a couple, desperate. I’m up in the middle of the night.  Ate cake. My friend brought a couple boxes of her things to Happy Earth Market to give away.  I was gifted a plastic Virgin of Guadalupe […]

rest

wild horses

Woke up with some energy wanting to get things done before breakfast.  Sending emails to those Ming met yesterday at the PBS mental health thing.  It’s work. Yesterday I talked to a worker at Credo trying to figure out if I could get cheaper cell phone service from them.  Short answer is yes.  But Cricket […]

I wanted to boycott starbux for a […]

grumpy day

Woke up happy with a good attitude about upcoming events.  It’s been downhill from there. Now Ming is the happy one.  We’re at the Barstow panera eating a late breakfast.  Please say a prayer for us, if you like to pray. We’re traveling home and then tomorrow morning Ming is tabling at this mental health […]

Gmorning.  Here’s the tree collard Ming planted in the undisclosed location maybe a year ago.  So pretty in the light.

Kyle

Yesterday on our way back from Santa Barbara we picked up a hitchhiker at the beautiful Gaviota rest stop.  He was maybe a little younger than I am with a backpack, just him.  I had never picked up a hitchhiker before. He was nice.  We both went to UCSB.  He had studied engineering.  Ming talked […]

glad

When Ming called my doctor, the assistant said the other assistant had spoken to me last week, which didn’t happen, so I wonder who she spoke to?  Anyway, my chest x-ray is normal.  Glad. Today we’re going toward Santa Barbara so I can see my bestie and her baby.  And the sea.
