Waking up at 10:30 a.m.
Steel Cut Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Strawberries, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.
Skyping with Aysena, my ex-girlfriend who's living in Yakutsk, Russia at the moment. I'm helping her with writing a motivation letter to get a scholarship. But it's nice to catch up. Been a few years since we had a conversation.
Banana. Protein Bar.
Driving all the way over to an assisted living home to meet my mom. I offered to help her friend Reinette move to another assisted living home. There're a couple of older guys here with a truck and a van. Using dollies to get all the boxes and furniture shoved into our vehicles. It's a lot of work that takes about five hours to complete. With everyone working together we get it done.
Finally back home. I'm tired and hungry.
Eating leftover slices of Pizza and a Salad.
Power napping. Ana awakens me after a 15-minute sleep. She hops into my bed and cuddles my backside. She complains about how her hands and arms hurt from lifting freezer boxes at work.
At the music space with her rehearsing songs.
Sharing Popcorn and Dark Chocolate in my room. She sits on my bed while I scroll through videos on the computer.
Back in her room while snuggled up in her Snoogle pillow she gets a little teary-eyed, something about feeling alone. I let her know that I'm right here and that she's not alone, ever.
I settle down next to her at 2:30 a.m.
