Waking up after noon.


Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Strawberries, Maple Syrup, and Almond Milk. English Breakfast Tea.


Helping Ana do things in the kitchen. She’s baking banana bread and cooking soup. I put on some gloves and take on the dishwasher role.


Piling up the car with Trader Joe’s bags and crates filled with gifts. Driving to Norfolk to her mom’s house. They’re having a little family get-together. Enjoying plates of Thanksgiving style food along with Ana’s homemade soup, banana bread, and chocolate chip cookies. A Christmas Story (1983) playing on the big screen. At some point we’re all in the karaoke room singing with her brothers. Exchanging gifts. I got a few appropriate gifts like a piano floor mat, a pair of socks with Elvis’s face on it, and slippers. I got Ana that rainbow guitar pedal she wanted for so long now.



Now, at the hospital visiting with mom. She’s got a little mini Christmas tree sitting over on a table with a few small gifts and cards for Ana and I. She seems to be doing a lot better today.



We decide to hit the bed early after 2 a.m.
