Waking up at 10:45 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Strawberries, Maple Syrup, and Kefir. Guayusa Tea.

Basketball at the rec. During the last game I hustle up and knock down a couple of crucial 3-point shots.

“MacBook came alive!”

Scrambled Eggs. Poppy Seed Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Potato Chips. Coffee.

At Music Makers. I don’t have as many lessons to teach but running the business phone and dealing with the schedule gets stressful. Christmas traffic causes so many delays with teachers and students arriving late.


Shortly after 8 p.m. I’m home cooking dinner for myself: Maple Mustard Salmon with Black Beans, Kale, and Rice.

Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Stopping by Kroger to pick up some fruit then heading over to the hospital to visit with mom. She’s had a stressful day as have I. We keep finding out little by little what’s going on with her. One thing is for sure she has cancer in her uterus and we will begin radiation treatment. In the meantime, we’re both itching for her to get out of the hospital and continue with her life. She is greatly missed at the studio – so many people are asking about her – and I’m pulling double duty with her not there. I give her some pineapple and yogurt and some other fruit for later. It’s important that she continue staying positive and hopeful.

Back home. With Ana and Austin downstairs at the dining room table. I fold/cut Christmas cards while Austin chows down on his Taco Bell.

Pineapple and Yogurt.

Sleep 3:30 a.m.
