Jay, for some reason I thought you did have a pet bird. I got to pet a koala when I was in Australia, too. They feel interesting, don't they? A little oily and curly like a sheep.
Good to see Leah! I like the weather here in the PNW but glad you are somewhere that suits you better.
Kate, hope you're making it through the weather okay.
I'm watching a movie right now (well, TV show on DVD--Dr. Quinn) but have Kate and Seema's stories pulled up to watch later. Seema, I've had people think my fiction was real, too. I've had people say they can tell I have lived through such and such even when it was complete fiction.
Today my dad's best friend from Mexico and his wife came to visit. They come to the States every year or two and have one kid in Portland and another in Seattle so always stop to see us on the way between them. They are pretty much family.
Was nice to see them.
Then I phoned Jess. She can't talk cuz of the trach tube. It was a tad more awkward than I expected
I babbled on for a while but couldn't tell if she could even hear me or anything and then Clay never came back when I was done so I ended up just saying bye and hanging up.
Hopefully she got a giggle out of it at least.
Then the girl from church that I mentor came over for an hour so I could help her translate some of the harder phrases into ASL for church.
Was a good day but I'm a bit tired. Shoulder is sore but so much less painful than it was before. I finally woke up a little less often last night.
