I think I deserve a medal!

I’ve been a stress bunny all day!

As I told you all earlier today, my PA Trish texted me this morning, 3 hours before she was due to arrive at my house.

She said she wouldn’t be coming today.

I immediately went into panic mode, ringing my coordinator, asking if I could get a replacement PA to work the shift.

I couldn’t. Nobody was able to do it.

So then, I was like, well, I gotta eat, so I guess I’m going to have to cook my own meal!

I know how to oven bake chicken, but I wasn’t sure how to boil it.

I did not know how long I needed to leave it boiling for.

So, it was mom to the rescue!

She told me step by step what I needed to do. And I followed her instructions to the letter.

And voila, I got chicken which was tender and edible!

It came out perfect! I was so proud of myself.

I texted my therapist to tell her about the stress I’d had, and that I’d cooked chicken and I was proud of my efforts.

She has already texted me back, she said, I knew you guys had a cook in there somewhere.

She’s right. We definitely do have some insiders who are good at cooking!

Anyway, now that my day is almost over, I’m less stressed out, and I am now relaxing in front of my TV, for a couple of hours.

But, after todays stress, I think I definitely deserve a medal!
