Waking up at 10:08 a.m.

Sharing the usual Oatmeal with my mom. Ana makes her own cause she likes to drop tons of cacao in the pot.

Me: "It's an oatmeal cook-off."

All day shift at China Wok.

I had what seems like a longer than usual break from the restaurant. It's been six days. Kevin has officially resigned as a delivery driver so now it's all on me to pick up on the chores.

Banana. Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.

I stop by the house for a quick lunch to grab. Ana walks in almost immediately after. I slap her on the ass significantly hard.

"Whenever I get frustrated I treat your bum like stress balls," I tell her.

"Stress buns!" she exclaims.


Scrambled Eggs. Green Pea Snack. Oolong Tea.

It's exceptionally busy for a Sunday. Raking in a few generous tips and dealing with a few stiffs.

Honey Crisp Apple.

I had a couple deliveries to Taureau Court so I decide to pick up my mom from the house. I can see it on her face that she's a bit heavy with some mixed emotions. She saw a lot of old friends in one day. Just being here for the past couple weeks has been more than just nostalgic for her. There's been gossip and rumors stirring up over her personal life. I try to be encouraging to her cause I know how hard it is to deal with other people's judgment.

Me: "You just need to be strong in who you are. We're always changing. It doesn't matter what anybody else says."

I end up delivering later than I would prefer. Finally off work shortly after 11:30 p.m. I brought mom a special soup from China Wok. I chow down on my Fried Shrimp with Broccoli, Carrots, Onions, and Garlic Sauce.

Settling down. Composing a belated Christmas card to give my mom in a morning.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
