I’m actually writing this on thursday morning, well thursday middle of the night into the morning.
My wednesday was ok I guess. I didnt get up to much. I had my phone appointment with dr barry, that went well. We got to talk through a lot. She was a half hour late calling me, but I had a feeling she’d be later phoning me so I wasnt too worried about it…I knew she would phone.
My dad and my sister came over at lunch time, my dad cut the grass, of course he made a huge dreama out of it, everythings a huge deal to him. But I felt sorry for him today. He’s not well but he’s refusing to give in to it.
Mom had called their doctor to get him an antibiotic because he wasnt able to breathe too well, he is also coughing up green phlegm.
He did manage to cut the grass, but he had to sit down a lot. My sis said she’d have done it, but mom said she has done enough and she told my dad he’d have to do it.
My sister had to go to work so while dad cut the grass she left to go to work, after putting on a wash for me, and cleaning up my kitchen. She picked dad up afterwords, and they left to go home.
I had a video call at 3 PM, with some people from my local blindness agency, the guy who runs the technology department was having a kinda social community gathering for some of us, it was good. I enjooyed it. We’ll be making it a weekly thing, I think.
Afterwords I ordered take away food. Fried chicken and some fries. And then the pain from my UTI got bad, so I curled up in bed and thats pretty much where I stayed.
So that was my wednesday in a nutshell, Who knows how today thursdays going to go.
We’ve had a very quiet morning, my P.A came at 9 AM. She just did some housework for me, and she went to the store to get me some coffee, I had run out of it and god forbid I run out of coffee, that would not be good. I let her take Nitro out for a short walk, I didnt go. She finished up with me at 11:30, and then I started making my calls for work. I got them all done within an hour and a half. I had some lunch and now I am bored. I’ve just taken a shower, and am about to turn on the TV to see if there is anything good on it. I went outside to talk to my neighbour for a short while. A big bumble bee almost flew into my hair, so I quickly made an exit and went back inside. As you all know I am totally nervous of any flying insects, but especially wasps and bees. I talked to my mom and she’s doing some gardening. The rest of the day here is going to be spent reading, watching tv and cooking dinner. 3 days into lockdown and I am almost going insane. My niece Lauren should have been making her confirmation today, but that was cancelled until further notice. Oh well, it is what it is, not much we can do about any of it. We just have to hang on, and hold tight.
This house, its like a zoo
The mess, it is so not cool
I am spending my morning
Cleaning, and pruning
All so that my house will be gleaming
I am hard at work
It sure aint a perk
Gotta eat now
and Stay full up, somehow!
Cleaning products, hand soap, nowhere to be found!
I cant quite believe the way people are still panic buying!
A few days in and they are still trying to buy up every pack of wipes, bleach, surface cleaner etc!
And there are literally no bottles of hand soap to be had!
Omg this is nuts!
Luckily I got mine last week, before all this started!
Yesterday my aunt was visiting my mom, she said she ended up having to buy shower gel to wash her hands! She wasnt able to get any soap!
I’m just like wow!
Absolutely nuts it is!
I’ve just spent 20 minutes unblocking my shower drain with my mom. It was so disgusting. There was so much hair down there. We used a whole bottle of mister muscle drain cleaner on it, it was that bad. There was even some of Nitros hair down there. How that got there I dont know! My mom thinks I brought it in to the bathroom on my feet. I hate cleaning the drain. The smell is awful. I hope I dont have to do it again for a while. It should be fine now for at least another six months. All going well I mean. What a horrible job though! I absolutely hated doing it but it has to be done!
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is clean/dirty. Use one, use both, use em any way you like. Enjoy and have fun!
I am loving that my house looks so clean. The new relief pa I have she is brilliant. She cleans the house thoroughly. I dont even have to get after her about it. She knows exactly what to do, it helps she has dogs, because she knows that there will be a lot of dog hair to clean up. She automatically does it. She spends ages vacuming, and mopping the floors, making the house smell great! I have this floor cleaner, that smells so good! I love it! It has a lemony smell to it!
As well as a clean house, I too am feeling all clean. I love having a hot shower each morning! Its so refreshing, so healing, I love letting the water run on me, I use face wash, shower gel, and then once out, I lather myself in body butter, and deodrant.
I love that now I have a new electric shower, it is so awesome, and makes a huge difference to my life! As there is no waiting for the water to heat up, I can just get in when I want to!
As one of our alters emily whose 12 says about cleaning, a clean room is a happy room!
And a clean body equals a clean mind, thats what I say!
Until next time, happy Saturday!
There was a bit of a crisis at work today. What happened was a client who my supervisor visits regularly, rang. He said he was in the psych ward, and the psych ward wanted to discharge him, and he had no where to go. He’d had an argument with his family, and they’d thrown him out of the house, so he’d ended up in the psych unit. The family are very disfunctional. There are 3 people living in the house, the mother, whose a raging alcoholic, and her son and daughter, the son is who rang, he’s not in good physical health, and he has mental health issues. The daughter is obese, like morbidly obese, and she cant walk as she has some sort of disability on top of the obesity.
My supervisor visits them every friday, however today, she went into the hospital to the son, got him a new phone as he said he had none, then he asked her if she’d go to his flat, as he had a flat but he hadnt stayed there in a while. He said the flat was full of rubbish, mainly beer cans, and stuff. So my supervisor went over there to clean it for him, as the psych ward agreed to keep him in until tuesday, my supervisor brought one of the other volunteers with her, to help her as she’s supposed to be going on holidays today after she finishes, and so she wanted to get this all done before she leaves.
It was a huge crisis, and it was so huge that my supervisor actually forgot she was to pick me up. It was only when I rang her to ask her if she was on the way that she went oops so sorry, I’ll tell you all about what happened when I get there, which she did.
I dont know what happened after she got back from his flat, as I was gone home before she got back to the office. I hope everything worked out though. Its not even in her job description to do this sort of thing. Its so good of her to do it for him, but she said she’s very fond of the son and daughter, and they’re in a terrible situation, its so sad, and I think she felt sorry for the son.
It is just an awful awful predicament to be in. Then after she got done cleaning the sons flat, she had to visit the daughter, and pretend she hadnt heard from the son, as the son and daughter had had an argument and they arent on speaking terms. What a flipping nightmare!
