Well, I met with Dr. Curran. Everything went well. She agreed that I need to quit smoking and the best way to go about it would be to move channeling the energy of good change. For some reason she was not able to ring my phone after she got me on the phone because the audio on the computer did not work for her side, an echo was created. I turned off my audio and I was able to talk to the doctor. She explained although, smoke of any kind was not good for me, the marijuana smoke was seen as a better option. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to smoke marijuana like I smoke cigarettes. That may change though. If I smoke marijuana more often the cost is not necessarily prohibitive. At one time I could get $100 ounces. Right now, it is at $275. So, $275 is still a bit high. The doctor did not offer to get me a cannabis card. Maybe, with this next money I may buy food, especially. I do not know maybe, a couple of books. Then in July, I will just get some more smoke. Groceries are flexible though. So, June should be a good month to save as much as possible. Food sounds so good right now. I only have $13.00 in the bank. When I am certain I do not need it for cigarettes I will get some food. I talked to Jeannie today. She thought I was doing pretty good, you know, with the doctor and all. I have been reading African Writing Today. The book is from 1967. Ezekiel Mhahplele curates the stories. There are a number of translations. It is interesting to know the time has been taken to make the story available to a wider audience.

It has been 14 minutes and I have not taken my hydroxyzine yet. So, there is an art to this here writing. I could substitute sentences. One version of the story would contain medicines only. If food is a medicine I should definitely include them. Remember when I said this before. For sure, I need to start getting more medicine. I have $200 to spend on food if I save $100 this month. If I bought books but, I just bought books so, I probably, do not need to. I guess I am always trying to create a stash. So, what foods will I get? Eggs and turkey. I may make a Chef’s salad if I get tomatoes and avocado would be good too. Actually, I would need to get ham too. I have about $5.00. For sure, I could get a tomato and an avocado. I do not know how much ham I could get. Well, I would not need much. I guess, I might have $2-$3 for ham. I do not know. I could bring some change with me too so, it is not so close. I need to check my bank account. Also, I need to count my change. Sometimes it is good to check advertisements. It will come in the mail, I guess. I just would not make a big purchase until I see the ads. It helps to know the names of different companies as far as meat products. I should know better and select the right kind of turkey. Now, I will have to grill the turkey, I guess. I might just make something with beans though. I really have a craving for black-eyed peas. Why is that? I should see if Busch’s has black-eyed peas and if they do get it if the price is good enough to get tomatoes and avocados too. Avocados, for some reason, I have trouble spelling. I seem to think there is a “d” in it when there is not. Except in the second to last letter. I guess, I think d is next to v when it is only true of advance or advantage. In Jamaica, avocados are really common, I guess. Well, tomatoes are $2.50, avocados are $2.50, an onion is $1.00 and ham is $3.99 a pound. I will probably, get $2.50 worth or a little over a half of pound. I guess, that is out of my budget. If I do not get the onion I may do it. I guess it would depend on how much everything weighed. Like, an onion may be different sizes. The avocados and tomatoes that I would like tend to be the same size the weights do not vary so much. I could do that at the store. First get the ham to see how much you have to pay. From what I remember, you have to pay a little more because the weights will be too little or too much. I kind of would like to get pop. Drinking pop is sort of like drinking coffee because a lot of times it will have caffeine. So, this is like Mountain Dew, Cola, not Rootbeer and not orange soda. I think drinks like Sprite have no caffeine either. Pop is a special treat though. I should not buy it all the time. I could just watch the prices online everyday and then I will make better decisions. If something goes on sale, like mushrooms, I might make mushroom soup. Cream of mushroom would be pretty good to make. I do not know how to make it yet. It is supposed to be pretty easy to make. I guess, I was not expecting thyme and cornstarch. 1 cup of heavy cream, garlic, onion. This is Damn Delicious recipe. I guess, I would need to consider getting heavy cream, mushrooms and onion instead of avocado or tomatoes. It is definitely good to have some warm soup or hot soup. I guess, we already have thyme, corn starch and maybe onion. I do not know. The mushrooms would cost the same or more than avocado or tomatoes. I do not think I would want the avocado without tomatoes so, do I want a Chef’s salad or a mushroom soup. Actually, I should make soups. It is pretty hard to remember the ingredients. So, corn starch I guess it thickens the soup. They say the hardest part of making the soup is slicing the mushrooms. I am willing to do that. Also, it is fairly difficult to have all the ingredients. I guess we have thyme. I do not know. I should go look. Well, I do not see corn starch. I did see thyme and onion. So, I would need to get corn starch and mushrooms and heavy whipping cream. This would cost about $8.00 and I would not be able to get much else. I should go with Chef’s salad. Maybe, next week would be good or if sooner I would consider substituting it for chicken noodle soup on my menu. Two weeks could be mushroom soup and two weeks could be chicken noodle soup. I could add more soups later. It could be the soup only lasts about 10 days. I do not know. I am surprised though you do not need celery. I do not really know the ingredients in different kind of soups. There is varying combinations which are possible. Sometimes green peppers can give the soup a certain texture. So, there is that to consider. I guess, sometimes it is best to work with the ingredients you have. So, broccoli is good with mushroom. I do not have enough mushrooms or heavy cream to make it right now. So, corn starch, heavy cream and mushrooms. Or, do I get the Chef’s salad combo? Also, I would need to make sure we have chicken broth. So, Chef’s salad has sliced eggs too. I was going to have an omelette tomorrow. I guess we have cheese. Cheddar cheese is found on a Chef’s salad too. So, I would not have to buy that either. Chef salad is really the best bet. Cobb salad is like that too. So, I should get an avocado, a tomato and ham and possibly an onion for versatility. Actually, I do not need it though. This is the plan for Sunday. What time do I shop though? Sure, it would be nice to go right after they open. If I am not up at 8:30 I could wait until 3:00 like I did today. I should set an alarm for 8:03. Three being the number of items I need to get.

My money comes today. I have not checked yet to see if it has come already today. Besides, I have not made any decisions on how I want to spend the money yet. There are some things I was thinking about getting from Busch’s But, they do not open until later this morning. I have a menu though. There are ingredients for mushroom soup or Chef’s salad I could get but, I do not need to get them at the same time. So, I guess I would like to evenly distribute the spending of money. Shopping one time per week sounds reasonable. I would like to coordinate this with other activities. So, I have to go to CNS tomorrow morning and Dr. Berry the following day at 4:00. Shopping completion time of 3:00 is a goal. I could go Monday too. This is today. I could get corned beef and the ingredients for mushroom soup, pork chops, gravy mix, rice, hot chocolate and maybe Colombian coffee. I do not know. The narrative in NoViolet Bulawayo book We Need New Names is very good.

Almost time to take hydroxyzine. I have things on my mind. CNS at 2:15 or 14:15. I do not know why but, they did not want me to come in the morning. Rochelle probably works in Southfield in the morning. I think that is where I saw her before. I cannot picture her though. I think she might be fairly high up so maybe I might get a new nurse. Well, I better go take my medicines before it gets too late. @22:05 @22:14 Well, I need to shop more often like, maybe tomorrow in the morning. I do not know what to get though. The mushroom soup was okay but, I would like to get something else. I could eat waffles tomorrow. Then go to the store. I need to get pork chops. I could put them in the soup and cook it for some time. I could ask the butcher. That would save time. I could ask how long does it take to cook in simmering water. Especially like a soup or gravy. I could cook them in gravy. Let them cool off. Cut them and make sure they are cooked in the middle. It probably takes about 15 minutes to cook that way. Just to be sure because actually I would like them well done. I kind of want pop. I could just get a couple of 2 liters and maybe some more mushrooms. I think the soup even though it needs more mushrooms it also needs more corn starch. I do not know how much is too much though. It will do it some good to stay a few days. This book is written so well. I see Dr. Berry on Wednesday. I will tell her about the eye doctor, I guess. I do not want to talk about it though.
