Carroms Board Game with Mom (January 23 2015)[i]

Waking up at 9:50 a.m.

I've got to go to court for a "following too closely" citation I received a couple months ago when I was involved in a multiple vehicle collision. The whole thing is bonkers cause I was rear-ended by a car and pushed into a car in front of me. But the officer on the scene issued the driver behind me and myself this citation.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Strawberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee with Coconut Creamer.

I sit down in courtroom B for a whole hour watching other traffic offenders go up to the bench and hope the judge has leniency. Unfortunately, when I get called up my officer requests a continuance so he can bring in the other drivers, which aren't present. I was really hoping to resolve this today. I even had all the evidence and documents to prove my case.

Stopping by the thrift store off General Booth on the way home.

Cara Cara Orange.

When I get home I discover one of my glass water jugs spontaneously combusted. It was sitting on top of my food shelf. I don't understand how this happened. Water spilled right onto my new mattress and into the shelf soaking some of my boxes. I clean it up the best I can.


Mom arrives home from spending more time with uncle Kenny. Sharing a Chic Pea Salad Sandwich with Tomato and Falafel Chips with Hummus.

Continuing the process of cleaning the water spill area.

My mom goes off to attend a funeral for a close friend's mother. Meanwhile, Ana just clobbered down half a container of peanut butter. I give her a hard time about it and break down all the servings she ate based on the nutrition facts.

Me: "According to this you just ingested 1400 calories of peanut butter!"

She got distracted while talking to her mom on the phone and kept dipping spoon after spoon.

Ana and I drive to the Great Neck Rec for a good workout and basketball. While on the sit-down ellipticals side by side we laugh at each other when the speed picks up.

"Sleep is more important than sex," Ana spouts out.

Me: "Yeah, life is too busy for sex."

We're both kind of half joking.

Upon further reflection, "Look at us – we're a bunch of lameoids!"

Back home. I cook up hearty bowls of Cauliflower, Broccoli, Carrots, Scallions, and English Peas. With Ana and mom enjoying our dinner together. For dessert is Pineapple dipped in Greek Yogurt.

After cleaning up Ana immediately starts baking her version of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies while I run up and down the stairs doing laundry and then making almond milk.

My mom points out, "Man, you guys are like busy bees!"

Me: "Yup, this is our lives all the time. We're constantly doing things."

I pull out an old Carroms board I used to play when I was a kid. I played this game all the time in the after-school program. It's like a dumbed down version of pool. Mom and I duke it out and have a good time.

After snapping a photo of Ana stretching by the diner booth I realize how photogenic the house is.

Pu-erh Tea.

Sleep 2:45 a.m.
