A busy Morning with my PA!

had a great morning. amanda came at 9. we had lots to do so we were very busy for the entire morning. i had a taxi booked for 9:20 to take us to my gp’s surgery to have my bloods taken. The taxi came bang on time. So we were actually early. Amanda asked me if I wanted to go in on my own to get the blood drawn or if I wanted to have her in there with me. I let her come in with me. It wasnt a big deal. I was happy for her to come in with me. The blood draw was uneventful. The nurse was actually able to find a vein! I was shocked! She did use a butterfly needle though to draw the blood. But it went well. She took four bottles of blood from me. She said I had to come back in two weeks for my diabetic review. She said at my review I’d get the blood results then. She gave me a urine sample bottle but I didnt have to give a sample today, she said to wait until I come back in in two weeks. I will also be having an ECG then too. So after coming out from seeing the nurse, and getting an apt for 2 weeks, we walked to a local restaurant. I had to eat something as i was starving. I had been fasting to get the bloods taken so I needed to eat. We went to a nice little restaurant and I had a sandwich. It was really good. I had ham and cheese with some mayo on it. We sat and chatted for a while, then we walked over to the gym which was very nearby. I had a really good workout at the gym. I did the treadmill, the bike and I lifted weights. The weights were very hard I didnt realise how hard they’d be. I was exhausted after doing them. I did 3 reps of 12 reps each. On five different machines. It was intense. After my workout we came back to my house. And I got amanda to do some housework. She mopped, vaccumed, did dishes, changed my bed, and a few other bits and pieces. She flew around I was shocked she got it all done in an hour! I couldnt believe she got it all done in such a short amount of time! I had an hour to spare after she left. I rang a friend and we chatted for a while. then I got picked up and I am now volunteering. I’ve finished all of my calls though. I’m just sitting here for a few minutes now relaxing waiting for my ride back to my moms house. The volunteering was amazing. Everyone I chatted to on friendly call was in a great mood. Its nice that they were all feeling so good. Some of them were saying how bubbly I am and how I am always in a good mood. Im not but when I am here I do try to be. I try to be upbeat and positive. They have no idea that I struggle so much as I cant let on that I struggle. It makes me feel good to help people. It makes my day that I can help the clients and if talking to them helps them to feel better then I am happy to do it. I’m looking forward to going back to mom and dads tonight though for the weekend. I am hungry now and mom is making a chicken curry with rice and nan bread. Yummy. I cant wait. I told her to put some chick peas in it and she is also putting peppers, mixed veggies and carrots and onion in the curry. I am planning on resting for the evening. Not doing much of anything except maybe reading and being online on the internet. I’ll be going to the gym again tomorrow, mom is going to take me. So thats about it for now. Its been a busy few hours but I like it that way, I like when I am busy.
