Healing practices, OITND, + National Doughnut Day

Date #304 – Friday, June 6, 2014

A: It wasn’t until we were back at my apartment and well into Orange is the New Black that I realized it was Lua’s 8th birthday AND also National Doughnut Day. Because of all this we promptly left on a search for doughnuts. Unfortunately my neighbourhood is hurting for two things: an abundance of coffee shops and bakeries. There’s basically nothing and, no, we do not count Starbucks, Country Style, Tim’s, blah blah. We don’t count those. But today we had to.

And I know I want to blame B for being a horrendous influence by saying over and over that “I never used to eat ANY doughnuts before I met Brian” (which is TRUE)…. but it’s more likely this thing called self-control. That. I don’t have that. Any advice on how to get some would be great.

B: I could blame my on-again-off-again doughnut obsession on my Dad, but like A said, it’s about self-control. I was feeling sad for myself and my accident so of course I used National Doughnut Day to indulge!

If we were in my neighbourhood (Little Italy) I could visit an array of local bakeries, but we weren’t and we were only able to find Country Style. We started watching Orange is the New Black and I have to say the first few episodes were disappointing, unfocused, and drawn out. Multiple times I noticed how shots went on to long and many scenes were simply people standing around talking. Luckily, the doughnuts were pretty good.

Sick Date – Date #81 – Oct 2, 2013

B: During Date #80 at the Blue Jays game I started feeling sick. so, this whole week I hadn’t seen a lot of A. she dropped some goodies off earlier, but in a sick coma I missed her knocks at my door. thanks to the vitamin C, tea, and oil of oregano she left me I was feeling better. nothing was quite as great as when she stopped by Wednesday with some 3 month Anniversary flowers and a doughnut.

she got some car stuff done (she’s selling her car) and I tried to help and then we watched Derek, Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix series. it is really heartwarming and made me feel a bit better. unfortunately I got a terrible sleep and woke A up a few times. she already wasn’t feeling well and I don’t think this made things better 🙁

A: A bunch of sickies hanging out in the house means that the world around you will catch it – if you’re lucky.  I tried my best to be there for B without being overbearing. Flowers always made me feel better plus October 2nd marked our 3 months so I thought a nice treat was in order. : )
