Waking up at 10:30 a.m.
Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Blueberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee with Cream and Honey.
All day shift at China Wok.
I love it when the sun decides to hide behind the clouds. There's a light refreshing mist in the air.
It's a terribly slow afternoon for deliveries.
Two leftover slices of Pizza. Honey Green Tea.
Eventually, business picks up and I'm driving non-stop – picking up one delivery only to come right back and pick up another one.
Navel Orange with Greek Yogurt.
Off work and back home.
Black Beans with Broccoli and Rice.
Watching Kickboxer 2 (1991).
Catching up on writing and research.
Ana steps into my room to chat and say goodnight. I say something that rubs her the wrong way and she starts to walk off. I think it was something about demanding she eat the black beans I had cooking all day. But I realize how negative and judgmental I can come across in my attitude. Part of it is just exuberance and sarcasm but I realize this could be why Ana closes off to me when I act like that. Later on I go into her bedroom and stretch with her. I apologize. She apologizes. She cuddles up under her soft burgundy robe and I cuddle over top.
Sleep 3 a.m.
