Yesterday was not a great day, but it had good parts.
I ate a good lunch at Aviva with ITP-Readers Stacy and Steve. I ate a chicken schwarma platter with lentils and sweet potatoes. Amusingly, I confused the heck out of the woman dishing out food when I declined putting some sort of tomato/cucumber mixture on top of my lentils, I can’t handle the lingering aftertaste of cucumbers, and instead asked for some red cabbage. “On top of your lentils?” she asked. “Yes, please. I know, it’s weird.” I replied.
After lunch I skipped riding MARTA back to my car and walked from downtown to Inman Park instead. The weather was perfect for walking and I spent the near-hour journey listening to an audio book about the English language called Words and Rules: The Ingredients Of Language
Yesterday afternoon I also made a trip to Krobar and discussed what’s going on with my mother with a friend whose father is a doctor.
Today I’m trying to focus less on the wrongs of my life and more on the health and recovery of my mother. She has graciously sent me a bunch of links to read about what my mother will be going through and how to help her.
Even though I am currently not employed I also plan to make some charitable donations today because it is Georgia Gives Day. Not only does it feel good for me to donate to my favorite Georgia charities, in some cases they may win additional funding based on donations received today.
Finally, tonight I will be going to Masquerade, for the last time ever (?), to see She Wants Revenge perform. Yesterday I won two free tickets to the concert from Criminal Records! According to what has been published She Wants Revenge will be playing the entirety of their record “She Wants Revenge”, which is the record they were supporting when I last saw them at The EARL ten years ago. Ten years. Wow.
Have a great day friends.
