Yeah, so, my mighty, mighty good boy Calvin caught a cold, so we spent the weekend in the house.
On Saturday, we didn’t even change out of our pajamas. I’m not going to lie to you, it was kinda rad. It’s not rad that Calvin caught a cold, but it was rad to just spend a day at home doing pretty much nothing. I mean, we did do some stuff. Stuff = laundry. We finally hung a framed photo that had been sitting around for a while. I made a baked ziti with spinach from Thug Kitchen. Calvin spent his recovery time lining up cars on a table and watching a lot of “Curious George.” Yep, he’s back on “Curious George.”
On Sunday, he still had a runny nose and a cough, but he was so cooped up that we took him to the mall for some quick shopping. The Serramonte Mall in Daly City has a pond in the middle of it now. It’s got fish and turtles, and signs asking people not to throw in coins or trash. Guess what’s in the pond? If you guessed coins and trash, you are smart – probably smart enough to read a sign and definitely smart enough to know that throwing coins and trash into a pond that contains turtles and fish is a dick move. Ugh. People are the fuckin’ worst.
So anyway, Calvin super loved watching the turtles swim, and I super love shopping so it was a win-win.
Oh, by the way, I want to say a big thank you to everyone for your kind words on my blog post about panic attacks. The comments on the blog and on Facebook we’re really nice, and I’m grateful. I’m glad I wrote about it. I always feel better after I write about it. Writing is excellent therapy.
