Brace yourselves… the NHL preseason is coming!

September 15, 2018

Barry A. Cook and Kyriakos Gouridaris tried adding me to Facebook – DENIED! Steph called me unexpectedly the other day (the 13th) to vent about Mom and her overly-complicated planning, especially trying to let JON pick the location for MY birthday AGAIN. His kids are not an excuse for everything! Planning with Lisa’s side of […]

Lunch with Auntie Catherine, finally! / Being sarcastic at the wrong time

October 28, 2016

Someone named Irene Schmidt added me to Facebook – DENIED, even if our mutual friends are Subena and Leona! I left the house at 10:10 to meet Auntie Catherine for lunch at Peaceful Restaurant today at 11. (there are STILL temporary bus stops and loud construction at Brighouse!) She was there before I was, but […]

Helen Yoon / Yanisa? / Dog taking out a toilet to the garbage! / Me so hungy!

January 9, 2016

John Powell’s friend Helen Yoon wanted to add me to Facebook; sure, why not? The Canucks played the Lightning at 7 tonight. The game went to overtime, and the Canucks lost 3-2. More Facebook weirdness: Yanisa?! A man is taking out his old Christmas tree. Then his dog takes out the toilet: “Two can play […]

Mongolian hot pot at the last minute?! / Laundry tokens / Chrystal / Ironwood McDonalds

October 14, 2015

Mom wanted me to bus an hour to a Mongolian Hot Pot place for lunch with people, so of course she called and emailed me at the last minute at 11 AM. That’s not how this works! *rolleyes* I called Hester at 1:15 for twenty more laundry tokens (April 28, 2015) since I’m running out […]

Osten, Ranen, Wyetta, Waylin (boy), and Zaidee / First day of Awana in two years!

September 20, 2014

Weird kiddy names so far: Osten, Ranen, Wyetta, Waylin (boy), and Zaidee. Mike got up on his own at 1:25. We discussed his taking a shower, his doing the dishes, coffee, costume planning (not tomorrow even if I did get out of the child care session), SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE with Luke Perry, the Pirate Bay, […]

David Fellowship is no more! / Eight-kilogram bags of rice!

September 1, 2014

Mike’s tongue infection has healed; we discussed his having to drink some baking soda with water to neutralize his heartburn (which he hasn’t had for years), hoisin sauce, sriracha sauce, Rolaids, Tums, and ulcers before we left the apartment for the barbecue at church this morning. He saw my note to self about the RuinTen […]

Janina crying, Uncle Eric’s cabbage, Washington steak dinner (dream) / School Eras

April 21, 2014

I had a dream where Janina was an actress, and was seen crying as she quickly left a townhouse complex of white houses. It seems she had just heard about her daughter Marilynn’s death! Then I was on a cruise ship with a bunch of people. I saw Uncle Ted, Auntie Grace, and Auntie Catherine […]

Chrystal, Mike, White Spot, Carnitas burger, beef dip, babies galore, sulfur, NO BOARD GAMES!

November 11, 2013

I got an email from Eric saying that we were doing board games on Friday for Fellowship; no thanks! Caught an early bus, so killed time at London Drugs by purchasing some more black cherry Strepsils before reading bits of various books. A while later, someone came up behind me and politely asked if I […]

Starburst sharing, hangout time, needing downtime, transit woes and irritation

September 1, 2013

Sharing Starburst with a bunch of kids rules! Eric picked me up at 9:40, and we were off to church while he wanted me to update him on my week. Now that I think about it, that week contained a lot of hangout time! Oh well, that was still good, but this week of downtime […]

Meeting Auntie Catherine at the Copa CafĂ©: steak and scrambled eggs!

July 18, 2013

Got up at 7:40, which I guess isn’t too bad without melatonin, considering the only other time I do NOT have it these days is when I’m not here and then wake up early anyway. Despite having to wait for the bus / Canada Line, I was actually ten minutes early to meet Auntie Catherine […]
