it was another hot day here today. i woke up early. like i think it was about 7 AM. i got up and my mom was already up, she said she had gotten up at 6, i ate breakfast with her and then we sat down and filled out a bunch of paperwork that the respite place sent me which i have to bring back to them when i go there next week. i sware there is a ton of paperwork. and it has to be filled out every year, same thing, same details, all about me, my medical history, my disability, support needs, etc. they even wanted all of the phone numbers and names of the people who support me like my OT, therapist, social worker etc. its nuts. so mom helped me fill all that out, then she helped me write a grocery list. the plan was that i’d go grocery shopping with kristen on tuesday. that is the normal way i do things. however last week when we were checking out at the till, the girl who checked me out never gave me my 10 euro off voucher because they’re machine was broken, and i was afraid that this week when i went back they’dmake a huge deal of it and maybe they wouldnt even give me the voucher. so mom said to solve it she’d take me to get my groceries today instead. that way she could help me sort the misunderstanding about the voucher. it ended up costing me money because by the time we were done we had to get three taxi’s between going to the store, going to my house to put the stuff away, and then going back to my moms house. i told my mom its too bad she never learned to drive! so we went and i got groceries, i spent way too much money. double the amount i’d planned on spending. i ended up buying a couple of things that werent on my list, and i also bought hair colour which was 2 boxes for 15 euros. thats a good deal so i said i’d get it while it was on offer. so by the time i got done i’d spent 75 euros. after putting all of my groceries away and coming back to moms we ate dinner, and then i went and started sorting out my media files on my computer for a while. i have 3 external hard drives with so many movies and so much music on them and i needed to see what i actually had, put them in folders on the hard drives etc. then i went outside with nitro for a while, and played fetch with him. he really enjoyed that. i had fun too i never laughed so hard he was like a maniac flying around the garden throwing himself into all the bushes. he’s fast let me tell ya! my aunt rang mom at about 5 PM and invited her and me to come to her house for the evening. so we did that. i hadnt seen my aunt in a few weeks so it was nice to see her and have a catch up with her. i’m shattered now and just ready to fall into bed. i have therapy tomorrow morning at 10 AM. i’m actually looking forward to the session. i’ll be bringing nitro to therapy with me. sometimes i leave him at home but since i’m going straight from mom and dads house he has to come too. after therapy i’ll just go home and chill out for the rest of the day. my regular home help is back tomorrow after her week off so that is good. back to normality again.
thanks for reading everyone…
