Journal of activities:
I spent time with Carole this morning participating in a CPR class in Santa Rosa. Carole’s license as a registered nurse requires that she renew her CPR certification every two years. She told me how valuable CPR training would be for me if I were ever around someone who had trouble breathing and she asked that I accompany her. I enjoyed learning about how to provide effective CPR. After the training session Carole and I went to lunch at a restaurant called Chili’s. I remembered seeing the advertisements of that restaurant while I was in prison and when we drove by I asked Carole to stop. I ordered the Southwestern Cheeseburger, which tasted even better than it looked in the advertisements. Then we returned home so that Carole and I could resume our work. In the evening we drove into San Francisco so that we could pick up Nichole and her boyfriend Michael. They were flying in to begin a short stay with us.

Carole is very happy today because her daughter, Nichole, is flying in from Seattle to visit. Nichole graduated from Washington State University last spring and her boyfriend, Michael, graduates in a few weeks from the university. I look forward to seeing Nichole and Michael, and I’m grateful that I have these opportunities to see Carole glowing with joy.
This morning I joined Carole to participate in a CPR class and I met some of her colleagues.
