Today I learned that a twenty-four and a half hour car ride with a stranger and a bird woman who is partially covered in silver body paint does not create optimal conditions for mental health when you are going on little to no sleep. That said, Rebecca, Reid, and I had a good drive back from California and I had a fun visit with Jill, Michael, and Isabella (more on that later).
As usual, I am all over the map emotionally upon my arrival back in Powell River and am having a crappy night. Hope to fall asleep soon. That’s right. At 7:30 pm. I’m taking a page out of Isabella’s book.
April 17-23rd is National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Week. Check to see if you are a registered organ donor at: www.transplant.bc.ca (all you need is your care card number. As you may or may not know, many people in BC think they are registered when they actually aren’t. Please check your status and talk to your family about your wishes). The Powell River PEAK was good enough to talk to me about Joey and do a story about Organ Donor Awareness week. I’ll post the link to the article when it’s available online.
And now I’m off to bed. Seriously.
