In crisis, and The plan for today

The plan today was for me to visit my friend norma. We were going to exchange christmas gifts. So at 2:45 Pm I went over to her place. We had a good time, and we did exchange gifts. I had got her perfume, it was called flowers. I was hoping she’d like it and I wasnt disappointed. She loved it. She got me a gift set with a ton of shower products in it. There was about six different things in the set. Its lovely and I really loved it. We had a good catch up. She’s recently started with a new therapist so she told me all about her. I listened and tried to be supportive. I’m feeling kind of bla today. I feel like I am a little bit in crisis. I am feeling emotional and very anxious. I didnt tell her that though. I didnt want to worry her. She’s a terrible worrier and I knew if I told her that I wasnt ok she’d spend the whole evening worrying. I’ve decided I am going to use my distraction techniques this evening. I came home a few minutes ago. I cooked dinner and now I am on my laptop. I will read for a while later and watch a little bit of TV. I can always email Eileen if I need to, and actually any of us who want to can email her. Its not immediate and she doesnt usually respond to emails, but the way I am feeling I think I can manage, as long as I know that she’s recieving the emails and reading them I am ok. I dont see Eileen until thursday of this coming week, but I will see Dr. barry on Monday morning. So all will be fine. I can manage until then. I’m not at my parents this weekend. I am staying home in my own house. Our weather is meant to turn icy and sleet and snow are meant to fall overnight. My plan is to stay indoors with my heat on. Wrap up warm and snuggle up with Nitro. Crisis or no crisis I will manage. I can do this. I’ve managed during worse times. I’ll take an extra clonadine if I need to. I’m only meant to take one but I’m sure Dr. barry wont mind if I do that. I’ll tell her if I do it. I probably wont, but knowing that I can if I need to is helping me.

Started my christmas shopping, the countdown to christmas has begun!

Mom and I went christmas shopping today. Mom said she’d take me and we could make a start on my christmas presents. I had some money saved, and I was grateful to her for taking me in so I could make a start on it.

I’m extremely happy with all that I got! I’ve nearly all of my presents sorted now. I have only 3 or 4 more people to shop for in my family. After that I’ll be done.

I do have some online friends to buy for but there’s amazon for that. Amazon is great for buying for people who may be living abroad.

I feel really productive now. I cant believe how much I got done! Now I wont be rushing at the last minute to buy gifts! I am ecstatic about that!

The only down side to it was we had a long wait for a taxi to get back home. We waited almost an hour. That was frustrating as it was freezing. I missed the comfort of having my sister with us who drives as she’d normally take us.

Overall though we had a great morning and I am excited to have so much stuff bought now.

The last of the christmas shopping is done

yep! I am all done now! I did the last of my christmas shopping today for family!
I got mom a nice winter coat. Its what she picked out I asked her to pick something out because I wasnt sure what to get. And she saw this coat and wanted it so that is what I got her! I also got her make up.
I got my sis a pair of silver stud earrings, and a bottle of versachi perfume.
The perfume was on sale, so I got a good deal on it.
I also have a gift voucher for her, and a curling brush for her hair, so yep all set now and happy with what I got her.
It was so hot in the stores today, I think it was the crowds of people! I was so thirsty when we finished shopping, I had to sit down and have a pepsi!
I enjoyed the day though. It was nice to just be out in the christmas atmosphere.
I’m happy I’m all set for christmas now though and the family are all sorted. I am giving dad money so I dont have to worry about a present for him.

Christmas shopping

so this weekend i went xmas shopping with my mom. i planned on buying what i had to buy for people, doing it all in one sweep.

unfortunately though my plans did not work out. i still need to buy for my sister. i ran out of money lol. why?

because, wait, because I needed a new hard drive for my pc to store my movies and music. that took presidence over gifts for people lol. i’m soo selfish.

external hard drives are not cheap either! i payed 60 euro for a 500 gig one. i would have gotten a 1 tb one but those were 89 euro and i didnt have that much to spend on it.

at least all of my movies are on one hard drive now though? and i can use the one tb one i have for my tv shows.

anyway, back to xmas and xmas shopping.

I got gifts for my uncles, my next door neighbour we always exchange gifts between us, my cousins in the UK, I also sent packages to america to two friends, I have a ton of cards for friends that I will be sending next weekend.

I still have a few more online gifts to buy too for people and send direct from good old amazon. cuz yanno amazon has everything!

but yeah it was a great weekend. my back was aching though when we got back to my house. i had to go lay down and leave mom to sit alone in the kitchen lol.
