May 30, 2018: Wednesday Thoughts

Today began crazy for me, and ended with a moment to rejuvenate myself. My OT session was a positive one. I received more Kinesio tape for my left hand, and got to take some time to rest. I got to replace my Freestyle Libre sensor today. I also got to read a positive article inContinue reading “May 30, 2018: Wednesday Thoughts”

May 29, 2018: Lost Moments

There’s so much more I would love to share about Johanna, yet the right words are hard to come by. You would think that as a poet, words would flow onto the screen easily. All the memories of our conversations come at me at once: the phone calls, the text messages, the group hangouts. IContinue reading “May 29, 2018: Lost Moments”

May 28, 2018: Remembering Johanna

I remember the first time I met Johanna. It was June 2004, and I was attending my first peer group in New York City, to train as a Poetry Therapy Practitioner. I made a connection with Johanna right away, since she, like me, was of Hispanic descent: ‘oh, your last name is Perez? Mine isContinue reading “May 28, 2018: Remembering Johanna”

May 27, 2018: Relaxation With Friends, and Dates

This afternoon I went to Jersey Girl Brewery with Andy and a couple other friends. It was a great spot to relax and enjoy a flight for a couple hours. I really admired the selection of apparel the brewery contains. Earlier today we received an email from a deacon assigned at our church, reaching outContinue reading “May 27, 2018: Relaxation With Friends, and Dates”

May 26, 2018: At the Movies

Andy and I finally saw Avengers: Infinity War this afternoon. It was very good, filled with action and unexpected twists. I especially enjoyed viewing the scenes after the film. It brings much to look forward to when the next Avengers movie comes out. The next movie we want to check out is Deadpool 2. TheContinue reading “May 26, 2018: At the Movies”

May 24, 2018: Thursday Thoughts

My ankle is feeling better than it did a week ago. Around this time last week I could barely walk on my left foot, very painful. Now, with the exception of a little soreness when I turn my foot, I can walk feeling little pain. The air cast is certainly a big help. I lookContinue reading “May 24, 2018: Thursday Thoughts”

May 23, 2018: Photos

I charged up my camera yesterday. I want to take photos with more settings, and not rely on my camera phone too much. Andy was so wonderful to recover my photo album tonight. I was so sure I had my album here in the room, but I packed it away. Fortunately the box was labeled!Continue reading “May 23, 2018: Photos”

May 22, 2018

Since my left ankle is recovering from a sprain, I spent today at home. I’ve been icing and heating the area around my ankle since Thursday, but it still felt uncomfortable moving around. My doctor visit earlier today went well: my ankle is recovering the way it should be. She also monitored my glucose levelsContinue reading “May 22, 2018”

May 21, 2018: Friendship Through Time

I enjoy looking at my Timehop app. I enjoy looking back on photos taken years past, due to the memories they bring up. Amusing or bleak, these photos are always memorable. Earlier today Andy’s Timehop pics from 2 years ago featured up in an unnamed diner. We were at a loss as to where weContinue reading “May 21, 2018: Friendship Through Time”
