Playing the hand I was dealt

Today I found myself in a waiting room with my family. It’s becoming kinda normal. Finding new things to do can be a little challenging and maybe a bit stress inducing at a time that’s already unpredictable. 

My kid and my father have be...

Pop

It's the 29th of December in southeast Wisconsin. That means construction has stopped and winter is here. It's pretty damn cold and today I thought I'd try freezing a bubble. 

The idea isn't terribly complicated. It's just soapy solution and a bubble wand, but the ex...

This might be a tissue day. I know it was for me. 

When I woke up this morning I was exhausted as I’ve been for the last 9 days. I had no plan for an adventure and I will confess it’s a struggle to continue this experience but something happened at the end of the day....

Flying balls

It’s the 99th day and officially the last double digit one of my 365 day adventure. It has been a super huge challenge to keep vigil in the hospital and come up with an idea that I can complete without getting kicked out of this place. 

Today...

Motion sickness

If you are one of those people who can ride a roller coaster, I envy you. 

On day 98 I took a spin in the world of VR and it spiraled out of control. 

I was pretty sure when this experience was discussed that I was going to get sick. I have a difficult tim...

I’ve celebrated the holidays in a lot of places and with many different people but I’ve never had Christmas in an Intensive care unit. 

Today’s celebration was hardly what we had planned. This day is usually filled with food, stories, games and maybe a few qua...

My experience today was meant to be about feminism. I’ve got this book that I’ve been trying to read for over a year. I’ve carried it with me from Scotland to Colorado and back to Wisconsin. The original purchase receipt is still tucked in the middle of the book where...

Pincushion 

Today’s adventure involved a ton of needle pokes and a moose. 

I’ve wanted to try felting for a while. I watched a woman create a felt dragon when I was at the renaissance festival a few years ago. 

I bought this kit with the idea it would have teaching instru...

I didn’t get it. 

It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year. Thousands of movies have been made to celebrate the holiday season. I’ve seen a few and today I watched one that I’ve never seen before. 

I’ve mentioned a few times that I’d never watched “A...

Life and monitors

As of 2017 we all arrive on this planet in the same way, through the womb of a woman. For many of us that woman becomes our mother, our mentor and teacher. I've spent the last day and a half watching and waiting. If you've been following this 365 day e...
