You are talking loco and I like it!

After months of mouth exercises and relearning how to speak, my speech therapist, Sharit is now teaching me the proper way to suck and swallow…ice. When she told me to use the technique, “like a popsicle”, I had to keep myself from bursting out laughing. I swear, it’s 10th grade all over again

With Lindsay, my physical therapist, we’ve started working outside. I love it; it’s so nice to be in the fresh air. It’s like recess! I walk on the sidewalk and the gravel is so bumpy and uneven, it’s terrifying but I like the challenge.. Jamie was home for spring break this week and since it was raining on Thursday, Lindsay had –me work on my balance and- the two of us play toss. Yes, playing ball inside the house!

That’s pretty much my Monday-Friday. On the weekends I try my best to get out of the house. I’ve been living off of NewTimes.com and going to local events like Dog Bowl, History of Barbie Exhibit, and Imagine: The Artwork of John Lennon. Nothing set for this weekend though since I have family coming over, but next week me and Aaran might hit up The Arts & Culture Center of Hollywood.

Seeing John Lennon’s drawings and doodles was nothing short of awesome. I went with my mom and after the hour-long drive to Delray, we wound up getting lost. When we finally found the place, there was no parking. The exhibit was about to close; I was so bummed and wanted to give up and go home but my mom kept on. After finding parking spot, we didn’t know where the actual gallery was. It was so stressful but we ended up making it, and I’m so glad we did. While we were looking around, a guy at the merch table approached me and gave me a free shirt, did the peace sign and walked away. I think people see me in a wheelchair and automatically feel sorry for me (sympathy on wheels), but I don’t mind, I got a new free John Lennon tee! It pays to be a cripple.

Ang recently cut her hair like Katinka’s in Zoolander and now I can’t stop calling her, “K-Mart!” The two of us did some sister bonding last week, and violently killed each other repeatedly on Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. I love my baby! We planned a weddting last month and this is how it went.Collapse )
