This is probably the only picture I have with my grandfather as an adult. Taken 3/31/13. #family #easter #grandfather
i’m finally back in Detroit. After seven months of being gone i’m finally back.
I got into today pretty late after a long drive so i’m headed to bed.
Tomorrow morning i’m waking up super early to get ready and go visit my students in Mexican Town at Detroit Cristo Rey High. They have no idea I’m coming. They know i’m in town but not when I’m coming to school.
I also get to see my nephew Keegan tomorrow, who I haven’t seen since his first birthday. And I get to meet my little niece Rowan who was born right after I left Detroit,
I’m going to see old friends and spend all sunday at the Hare Krshna temple.
As for anything else, I just want to do all my favorite things and take pictures.
Lord do I love this city.
Detroit baby I missed you, and I’m so happy to be home.
Okay so this morning I was pretty upset that I didn’t get me record player but I figured out why.
It was expensive, $125 and my family didn’t want to be greedy and have me open it at mom’s or dad’s or then at my mom’s family’s house so instead everyone bought me giftcards to the store that I wanted to buy the player off of and now I can go and purchase it myself.
I understand why this was done this way. And my sisters understand that I was still kind of disappointed that I didn’t get to open it this morning. But now I’m not upset.
I got over $200 in gift cards to a bunch of places and some really cool other stuff. I got to spend time with my family and now I am a happy girl.
I knew I was acting like a spoiled brat.
This has been quite the day
I did so little yet so much has happened
I relaxed all morning and then went to work
work was the same shit
after work i stopped into my apartment to grab some stuff for overnight and took off in my car to my mom’s house

My adopted dad, brother, and me while Bob was waiting 96 days to get his liver transplant. #family
And I stopped at my adopted parents first to see them. Colleen and Bob have been like a second pair of parents to me since I was a little girl. Bob has cancer, and he’s had it for a while, and he’s given up his fight. He was really sick this week and was in the hospital on Wednesday. I came home to see him and spend some time with Colleen. It was good to see them.
I held it together so well, so well. I broke down in the car on the way to my dads. I spent two hours with Colleen (Bob was resting in bed) and then went to my dads completely missing my little sisters birthday celebration.
At my dads my family understands how close I am with Colleen and Bob and respect it very much. I got to vent a bit to my dad, sisters, step mom, and aunt about work and school and life in general really. It was refreshing to see them.
Right before I left my littlest sister (who is 16) got really bad hiccups so I was teaching her an old nun trick (that I learned from an old nun) of how to get rid of them by drinking water upside down
I’ll have a video to follow. I almost peed myself watching her do this.
Anyways, after I taught her this trick and the hiccups went away were standing at the top of the stairs and I saw a cat run behind me out of the corner of my eye, and heard a meow from the bottom of the stairs. The thing was our only cat was sitting on the couch passed out. Taryn saw it too, so I know i wasn’t just seeing things. It was just our cat Shadow coming to visit, which I thought was pretty cool.
After I left my dads I came back to my moms, chatted with her for a bit, and now I’m off to bed. A very emotional day but definitely well worth calling off work so I could come see my family.
