Colorado, Hockey, and Snooze

Tuesday, November 26, 2019… Oh my, it’s almost Thanksgiving. For some reason, hockey likes to have tournaments around Thanksgiving. So we are leaving for Colorado tomorrow. I have this program, Grammarly, it’s pretty cool. Although it has made me lazy with my typing. No worries about typos and grammatically incorrect sentences! Just keep typing and the program will insist that you correct your damn mistake. LOL. “Yes, yes, I know I spelled that wrong. I’ll get back to you later.” It’s pretty easy to know where your mistake is, cause they have it annoyingly highlighted. I think technology has made […]

It may pass like a kidney stone, but hard times will pass.

Ok, not sure what I should write about. I have been reading this book, Automate the Boring Stuff with Python, to learn more about Python (again, the language). Doing so in a very active ice skating/hockey rink is pretty hard. There are 4 birthdays going on here right now. I’m sitting next to one. My table is the only one with an outlet next to it. Alexis is at one of the birthday parties. She is skating with her friends before hockey practice, then her friend’s mom will pick her up and take her to her friend’s house. Alex, who […]

Panic attack

I dropped off Karissa at school and stopped at Starbucks to study my Python. My anxiety is so high. I’m not sure I can stay here much longer to study. I’m trying to focus. Trying to focus on slowing down my breathing. I’m safe. I know I’m safe but my brain doesn’t want to believe me. I ordered a Jade Citrus hot tea with honey and a cinnamon-raisin bagel. It is helping my stomach, now if my breathing would slow and my focus would just concentrate on coding. Hearing aids are off. Headphones on and some nice, quiet instrumental music […]

Always remember

After a near-accident on the way to bringing Karissa to school, (never try to cross traffic on a very busy multi-lane street kids, especially when you can’t see me.. your oncoming traffic), I’ve decided to sit down for a few and relax. I’m glad I was going slow since we were coming up on a red light. She was moving perpendicular to my car. Why, I ask, would anyone put themselves in that situation? Did you really need to be in my lane so badly that you risk yourself? It’s not worth it, folks. I posted this, this morning on […]

Always check your laptop’s battery level

My laptop is dead. I forgot the last place I was using my laptop was at the rink that didn’t have a free outlet so it died. I’m again at a place with no outlet. Oh well. I will write on my phone. I guess ‘type’ is more the word I’m looking for. I’m at the Lovelace Hospital. I had to see my Hematologist for my anemia. I need to take an iron tablet on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I’m sitting in the cafeteria waiting for my ride. I told Tom that I didn’t feel like driving today so I […]

Stabilizing my mood

My therapist’s appointment is in this tiny town, smaller than the one I live in. Drove to the edge of town… took about a minute or two. I stopped by this place called Mama Bears and had lunch. Three tacos and a coke for $5. I couldn’t really beat that. Of course, I wasn’t able to eat my third taco so I asked for a to-go box. This place is busier than I’d expect in such a small town. Everyone knows everyone here. It’s a very family-ish feeling. It brings me back to when I lived in Babenhausen Kaserne in […]
