Friday December 18 2015


Waking up at 11 a.m. to Ana nudging on me saying, "Time to wake up!" She discovers my morning wood and

Steel Cut Oats with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Strawberries, Maca Powder, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.

Ana and I travel out to Newtown Road to browse the surrounding thrift stores – searching for pajamas (crazy lady pants) and Christmas gift things.

I received a $25 Panera gift card from one of my students. We decide to make use of it for lunch. I reminisce all the times in my early 20's when I used to have lunch here by myself or with friends. Eating out at corporate places like these is way out of our league nowadays. Either way, I enjoy a half Tuna Salad Sandwich with a half Creamy Tomato Soup. Then, a Pumpkin Muffie.

Back home. Preparing a little backdrop in the living room to take Christmas photos of Ana and I. Using an old black and white curtain Whitney used to keep in her room and a mini red Christmas tree.

Behind the Scenes of X-MAS Photo Shoot (Dec 18 2015)








Ana and I put together an odds and ends kind of dinner: Potatoes, Spinach, Scrambled Eggs, and Salad.

Looking through the Christmas photos together and choosing the very best ones.


Will points out in the kitchen that Ana might be neurotic. And we think that's the best word to describe her. Later on, I try my best to understand how she feels throughout her days – why she feels so sad and defeated sometimes – I rub her back with my hand gently.
