Nighttime Rituals


Brush teeth

Wash off makeup

Get David to put my hair in ponytail (I obviously can’t do it with one hand)

Cuddle with Toby and feed him some carrots

Sign off facebook

Check for appointments the next day then set alarm accordingly

Put water in my CPAP machine

Turn tv on a decent channel

Turn on fan, no matter how hot or cold it may be

Crawl in next to David, lie on his chest, talk about stuff, sometimes we don’t talk but rather we play a little

Turn on my side, put on oxygen mask, David cuddles into my back, arm around me, scratches my belly ……

And sleep.


About Secret Stains

I wanna do something that matters, say something different, something that sets the whole world on it's ear. i wanna do something better with the time I've been given and I wanna try to touch a few hearts in this life to prove I was here. I apologize if I seem absent minded sometimes. Sometimes I forget I'm still awake and say things out loud. Inside I am beginning to burst at the seams. There are so many secrets ... so many scars ... so many stains. This is me. Welcome to my world.
