day 1504 – nothing extra

one of the rare days i’m headed straight home from work because my hip and knee started causing havoc. i tried to alleviate the inflammation by icing, flossing, rolling, but nothing seemed to be the solution. i was optimistic it would get better evening so i should be good to go to the gym, but wasn’t the case. it got so bad that even with a knee brace on, all i really could do was sit in front of my desk and do some catch up paperwork

day 1129 – salt and pepper

image

i was pretty bored and lazy today even though i had a ton of things waiting for me to do. the family commented on how rare it was to have me eat out with the rest of them. it’s been a long time since i hardly recall when and where was the last. it was such a long dinner, my everything was so stiff by the time we took the bill. got home and did some painful rolling so i can still move for team practice tomorrow. i’ll also get to my long to do list tomorrow

day 1088 – lemon dishes

image

my parents taking me out for dinner on one of the rare days i have a sit down meal with them. it’s important i let them have a piece of my mind; at least now they have an idea of what’s going through my head. they took my opinions and thoughts relatively well. even though it seems like nothing is resolved, i do feel relieved to let it out. i no longer want to be carrying this rock on my shoulders because it’s a neverending burden

day 1061 – beach wedding

image

at jericho beach attending a wedding ceremony on a hot and sunny day. the casual and free setting of the beach wedding was nice, but it needed a little more structure for the schedule. it was quite nerve wrecking meeting many of mo’s extended family, but i still had fun being mo’s plus one. i am exhausted from being in a formal social environment for much of the day. this is one of the rare times i will be so decked out

day 993 – spot eating

image

me going to my family doctor is like the sun rose on the west side. i couldn’t get my way out of seeing her because my head is in dire need of assessment. while i am nursing my head and staying off whatever the doctor said not to do, i am hitting up the old and faithful whitespot. tonight felt like a movie and burger night and lots of mo time, so here’s my monty mushroom with caesar salad. it was good while i had the freedom to eat a little, and now it’s back to game plan to ease off it again

day 911 – federer action

image

staying up later than late to watch federer in semifinal action. it was painstakingly difficult to watch federer go through the first two sets. it’s a rarity to see him thrown off his game, where he had some unfederer hacks. i guess he also has a knack of making the game of tennis look so effortless. he fell in a deep hole from the very beginning but i am glad he pulled out his tricks and put together a good third set. i would’ve been beyond disappointed if it was a straight set match. nonetheless federer still had a dominant aussie open

day 711 – dental work

at the dentist office getting my regular cleaning done. i am not thrilled to be here spending my once in a blue moon saturday off. then headed to downtown for a little shopping with my mom at pacific centre to finish the rest of the afternoon. it’s been way too long since i last had a shopping spree with my mom and sad to report i spent way too much
