i’ve gone with him twice now on these rides. they are often a bit of an inconvenience. some ‘rides’ end up taking three or four hours, all told.
today we left the house at around 11pm and didn’t get home til like 3:30.
we got her to her appointment an hour early and i couldn’t bear to just abandon her there, so we sat there with her and she just talked and talked. she told us about many religious experiences she’d had throughout her life and how she had always wanted to be a nun and had tried a few times but was never accepted to be a nun so she questioned whether she was unworthy to God.
she told us how her younger sister had been murdered. shot by some man. we didn’t inquire as to any details that she did not offer on her own.
it was a little bit of a challenge to be patient and simply receptive and provide her with someone who was just listening. i was glad to do it at the same time. it was a very enlightening experience. and right when i was about to declare the whole experience like this wholly holy moment, the old lady says there was only one thing she didn’t like about the recent church she had attended and it was that there was a black jesus and black mary on some stained glass windows in the church. she said this to us, mind you, in front of another woman in the waiting room who could be described as black. i was thinking “whoops!” and “oh no, she didn’t…” haha.
she reminded me of like an old lady version of mary catherine gallagher.
this was in the hallway of the little old lady’s doctor office.
she didn’t even NEED to go to the doctor. the entire appointment was a ‘waste of time’, so to speak. but it wasn’t. we all had an experience which had inherent value.
it made the whole pope event stand out in a unique way.
do i look skinny?
i’ve been feeling skinnier.
partly because i have for some reason had a decreased interest in eating food. i’ve been not eating until like two or three in the afternoon. NOT my normal behavior and not adviseable, i’d say.
i’ve kind of been semi-fasting for a week.
justin bieber is the same age as my son!!!!
one month older.
he was born in march and my son was born in april.
i colored this. . yay me.
it’s weird how before you color a picture it seems like such a daunting and impossible task. but you just have to believe and live in the moment and just enjoy it.
don’t think so much about the outcome.
it’s all about process.
how do you like my new walmart shirt.?
yep. i’m evil. i practice rational self-interest and pay fourteen dollars instead of fifty for a shirt.
i also donate to greenpeace every month by automatic deduction.
and i live at poverty level.
isn’t it dumb when chicks on facebook or instagram post selfies and just say “bored”
yes. yes, it is.
but it’s also probably somewhat true. but it’s just unoriginal.
yeah. that’s the point.
i only had two bites of this.
it wasn’t even THAT good.
it was good. but like…
vanilla softserv… it’s from costco.
i had a berry smoothie which is nothing like the ones i make at home.
i had a couple of bites of carl’s polish.
with tard and kraut.
it was just reno. that barely counts.
