Being a nightowl

yes thats me, a nightowl. i cant sleep. probably because i slept late today, until 1:15 PM. so now I am up. its gone 2 AM. of course I’ve had plenty of cups of coffee. I started the prazacin tonight. 1 mg of it. so far no side effects thank goodness. liz is struggling tonight. she said she is feeling depressed. apathetic. she wrote a poem about it and after writing she said she felt better. when liz struggles it effects me. that is because we are connected. we feel each others feelings and when one of us does bad then the other usually is doing bad too. i’m sitting here now listening to apple music and catching up on blog ; posts. Is anyone awake? Are you struggling tonight? If so I’m here, struggling too, reach out to me and we can chat.

#weekend coffee share

If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that we did not get much sleep last night. If we got 2 hours it was a lot. Despite all that, we woke up at 6:30 AM, decided to get up and start our day. My thing is there’s no point to laying there thinking, especially when your thoughts are a jumbled mess and swirling around like crazy. So I got up, fed Nitro, let him out, and then had a shower. I would tell you that I ate a very healthy breakfast of some fruit, and now as I type this I am drinking a nice hot cup of coffee.
I would tell you that my plan for today is to go to my parents for dinner, and spend the night. Mom is packing my bag, nice of her to pack for me isnt it? So yeah she’s packing my bag for tomorrow, and as usual tomorrow we’ll go to therapy in the morning and then go on to our independent living skills course.
I would tell you that my sister was away for the weekend with her partner and kids, and she’s back today, they went to Killarney, wish I was with them too!
I hope your all having a fantastic weekend!

Recipe of the day Sunday-Grilled ham and egg salad sandwiches

Grilled Ham And Egg Salad Sandwiches
6 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
1 cup diced fully cooked ham
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon diced onion
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
12 slices whole wheat or white bread
Vegetable oil
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Combine eggs, ham, celery, mayonnaise, onion, mustard, salt and pepper; spread on 6 slices of bread. Top with remaining bread; set aside. In a bowl, whisk batter ingredients until well blended. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a large deep skillet. Dip sandwiches into the batter. Fry in hot oil for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Like French toast, this sandwich needs to be served hot, right from the skillet or griddle, to be at its best
Makes 6 servings.


thats been me lately. i’ve been so healthy. eating right. exercising as much as i can. and i think I’m seeing results. I havent actually been brave enough to step on the scales yet. I’m going to give it a couple of weeks and then do it maybe after a month. today i exercised on the treadmill, and i also walked for 20 minutes outside. i’ll be starting to go to the gym again soon too, now that I’ve started my independent living skills course. gym time is part of our healthy nutrition and lifestyle module. i’m still not seeing my nutritionist. i still want to take a break from that intensity of apts every week for a while longer. i dont keep junk food in the house now any more. i eat a lot more fruit. i snack on it throughout the day. if i do crave chocolate i eat a fun sized candy bar. that kerbs my craving. i have switched my bread to brown instead of white. just little changes. baby steps. its all progress.

Weekend coffee share

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you we had a pretty chilled out weekend, very relaxed, which was really nice.
The only thing we did do was pack for starting our new ILS course tomorrow. Our bag is now fully packed and we are ready to go.
I would tell you that I started a new book. So far I am loving it. It is one of Maggie Hartleys books, Maggie hartley is a UK foster parent who writes about her experiences of fostering.
I would tell you that I did a lot of self care things this weekend. I had two very nice bubble baths, I put on nice lotion, I ate healthily, I was mindful, did meditation, drank tea, probably too much tea lol.
I would tell you that I was supposed to go to a birthday party for a friend but the weather was so bad that I didnt go. Storm brian was here, it effected us with rain and lots of high winds. I didnt want to risk going out in it.
I hope everyone has had a nice weekend. See you soon!
