FOR TODAY March 6, 2016
Outside my window… sunny after getting smacked by a monster rainstorm with high winds last night. We even lost power briefly. This meant my dad built a fire in the fireplace last night which brings back childhood memories of power outages where we’d be playing cards around the fire or reading around the fire.
I am thinking… about whether or not to try and find an urgent care today that will take my Medi-Cal or waiting until tomorrow and taking the chance that my doctor can’t see me during Daniel’s school hours. (My allergies are now full-on bronchitis.)
I am thankful… for my parents. My mom has Daniel outside playing so that I can be in bed resting right now. My mom also made me one of the best coffee drinks ever this morning.
In the kitchen… Dad is making shrimp pasta tonight which is one of my favorites. Unfortunately, my Lenten discipline of keeping a Coptic fast is suspended until I heal from this because I’m seriously needing chicken soup.
I am going… to be doing the lectionary reading for today and listening to a friend’s sermon later.
I am wondering… if I can get a nap in this afternoon.
I am reading… Calmness by His Holiness Pope Shenouda III. I’m not very far into it but I am liking it thus far.
I am hoping… I can see my doctor tomorrow and don’t have to spend the morning calling around to find an urgent care that will take my Medi-Cal.
I am looking forward to… not coughing up a lung or having to swallow shots of Robitussin every 4 hours.
I am hearing… a game on Daniel’s Kindle Fire.
A Daniel story for today… I attended the kid’s IEP meeting on Wednesday and discovered that someone can say “I want iPad” when he goes to see his speech therapist. We are now requiring him to use “I want” whenever he asks for something and he said, “I want a cookie!” on Wednesday afternoon after we started requiring it.
Around the house… the usual cleaning, painting, etc.
A favorite quote for today… “Vestry retreats do not need exercises with yarn. Yarn does not sow seeds of transformation. Jesus does. Yarn is good for knitting scarves.”– tweet from Rev. Tim Schenck of Clergy Confidential and Lent Madness
One of my favorite things… naps.
A few plans for the rest of the week: seeing a doctor in the next day or two, avoiding painters at home, meeting on Tuesday morning for collateral support for Daniel, Bible study and choir on Thursday, and whatever else comes up.
Thank you to everyone who has continued to offer me support right now. It means the world to me.
