Share Your World – May 15, 2017


How many languages do you you speak?

One. English. I do speak Spanish but very badly. My Hispanic friends are always encouraging me to learn to speak better and are very willing to help me improve my Spanish.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

Dr. G. ~~ Medical Examiner.

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

Since I’m off this week I’m doing a cleanse. My stomach always seems to be bloated and distended so I’ve changed my eating habits plus I’m taking Metamucil.  The bloating causes lots of pain. In the past it has gotten so bad that I was hospitalized and being in the hospital is something I wish to avoid. Fortunately in 2016 I did not have to go to the hospital even once which was a real achievement.

What is your favorite time of day?

Anytime that I get to sleep. Seriously both daytime and nighttime have benefits.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I’m grateful to be on vacation so I can work on some issues with my brother Stephen’s Group Home Residence. I’m devoting my vacation time to finding answers and solutions for the ongoing issues at his Residence. This past Friday I attended an important meeting at Stephen’s Training Center.  More or less Vacation for me is just time off to work on all the other problems that I can’t fix while I’m at work. Actually my vacations tend to be working vacations. Going away does not enter into the picture.

Sad to say I don’t really think in terms of “grateful for” or “Looking Forward to” as the only thing that matters is what I gotta do to survive and to take care of my brother Stephen.  There are many things I’m grateful for but in my case I just put myself on Robot mode so I can take care of business.

In fact if possible I might call in to my supervisors to see if I can come into work for overtime. I need the money. Those terms are not options for me as I’m always either on my grind or putting out fires for responsibilities that nobody else can take care of except me.  My wants, desires, dreams and goals faded out of the picture long ago.  Real Life.
