    I can't do my last assignment for this week. Every time I try to work on it, I find that I can't concentrate. This will be the first assignment in two years that I won't be able to turn in.

    Reminiscing About The Strangest Things

    I lost my grandmother yesterday. Just now, Mom and I talked about, of all things, ice cream. When my brothers and I were kids, Grandma always made sure to stock up on Klondike Bars and Flintstones Push-Ups. We never had those at home, so they became a "Grandma's house" thing. She got me to...

    Thank you, everyone. I wasn't able to concentrate on my schoolwork, so I spent the entire afternoon just watching Amazon Prime videos. Better than sleeping, I guess. I'm spending the night at my mom's. I just don't want to be alone right now.

    Accidental bio-lab in the kitchen...Ew!

    Mom and I once left a gallon of milk in the car. It had rolled under the seat. Two weeks and one AWFUL smell later, we finally found it. We were at a shopping center, so I had to throw the jug in a trash can right outside a store. I wonder if business was affected that day . . .

    Oh, I don't have the skin issue. I think I have mixed connective tissue disease. I certainly seem to have most of the symptoms. What really got my attention was the difficult, painful swallowing-something I've had since childhood.

    My chest pain might be intercostal inflammation. I've begun to suspect that I have an autoimmune disease, and this inflammation may be part of that. There seems to be something about my connective tissues that my body doesn't like.

    How Pet Owners Name Their Cats - What's Your Style?

    Oh, gosh, I've done 1, 2, 4, and 6. Where would Lucky, Belle, and Beau fit, though? Their names were adjectives.
