Friday check in, how are you doing today? Are you glad its Friday and the end of another week?
The most valuable places to be in the world are in someone’s thoughts, in someone’s prayers and in someone’s heart!
I hope everyone has an awesome one! I certainly intend on it!
I am getting my hair done today, mom is putting a color in it, a box one, but I still love having it done, its a real pick me up and I love being pampered!
What are your plans today?
Well I slept, eventualy. But it was fitful sleep. I kept waking up.
I took an antibiotic at around 5 AM.
I finally dragged myself out of bed at 8, Nitro made sure of that, lol. He came into the bedroom and stood by my bed, nudging my hand as if he was saying come on mom, get up. He did need to go out, and I usually feed him around 8 also. I made a coffee and am now enjoyig it, my PA frances will be here at 9. Mom called me to wake me up. I was going to go out and take nitro for a walk this morning, but now I think I will ask my PA to take him out for me. I dont feel up to going out.
The pain has subsided a little but now my whole body feels achy.
At least I dont have plans today and can rest up.
My days just seem to blend into one another. Being on lockdown isnt helping any. I am just at home all the time, now, and sometimes I dont even get dressed, like yesterday, I stayed in my pajamas all day. Shame on me. I know I should make more of an effort to get dressed but I figure, whats the point?
Today though I will change that. I have my PA coming at 9 this morning, and I am going to take Nitro out for a walk. We’ll go out for half an hour. I hope we dont get stopped by the police, they are stopping people now and asking them where they are going and how far they intend to go etc.
Nitro needs a walk and so do I. I neeed the fresh air.
Other than that I work today. I thought I’d have next week off but again my supervisor asked me yesterday if I am ok to continue on working for another week, and I said I would. I wont see them stuck and with the pandemic they’ve gotten a lot of new referrals now.
Self isolation is so difficult. I have up and down days but I am trying very hard to just be ok. My friend Pat called me last night, and he said he’s feeling very depressed and he’s sleeping a lot. We talked for a while and I think it helped him to just chat. It helped me and I said I’d call him again this evening.
I literally havent seen anyone since sunday except for my next door neighbour and my PA. And thats how its going to be for a while yet I’d say. After my Pa leaves today I wont see anyone again until she comes back again next week on tuesday morning.
But I am thankful its the weekend, I do love weekends, even though nowadays every day seems like a saturday or sunday.
I am thankful that its friday! I love the weekends! This is going to be a good one for me, as I am off to dublin today. I have my PA Frances coming first though at 9 this morning, its just going on for 5 AM here now. She’ll do some housework for me, and I have to go to the beauticians to get my nails soaked off and get some waxing done. I’m not reapplying the nails for a few weeks, I need to give my nails a break for a few weeks.
Once she leaves at 11:30, I’ll get ready and will go to the train station at 12:30 and get the 1:25 PM train to Dublin, the train takes around 3 hours to get there. It runs straight through, so there is no changing trains or anything thank god!
I am just hoping that Nitro will be ok on the train, its been a while since he’s been on one. And he’s older now, so I am hoping it wont stress him out too much.
The weather here is meant to be super bad this weekend, we’re getting another storm, this time its storm dennis. So I doubt me and Pat are going to do anything much, other than stay indoors, the winds and rain will be too much.
But I plan on having a nice weekend anyway. Planning on catching up with pat, its been far too long since we’ve seen one another.
Fridays been busy for me. This morning my pa came. We just did some housework. I had been up in the middle of the night, at around 4 AM, I stayed up for a few hours, then before 7 AM I went back to bed, until 8:30. I stayed in my Pjammas for a little while after my PA got here. Then I showered and got ready to go to my parents for the weekend. While my PA cleaned the house, I got on the treadmill. I did 1 mile. I enjoyed the exercise, its really making me feel so much better. It boosts my mood which is always a positive. We got a taxi to my parents house, and my PA was going on to another job. I had lunch at my parents, and then I went to work in the afternoon, I worked for about 2 hours. All of the clients I spoke to today were in good spirits. I enjoyed my shift. Someone had made a baileys cheese cake for the office so I had a little slice of it. It was sooo good! When I got dropped back to my parents we had dinner, mom made spaghetti bolognes, which was delicious. I haven’t done very much since dinner time. I read for an hour, then I went to bed for 2 hours. I slept too because I was feeling super tired, I’ve still been remembering my meds each day, I am sooo proud of that fact. I haent missed any doses at all! After waking up from my nap I’ve just been online, and drinking coffee, I’m about to go switch off my laptop soon and start reading again before going back to bed. Tomorrow we’re supposed to get a bad storm, with high winds and heavy rain. Sunday is also meant to be stormy. Then Monday and Tuesday we’re meant to have minus 7 C and a wind chill. So I think its going to be icy and cold! I have no plans this weekend, other than on sunday if my sister will take me to the grocery store as I need to pick up a few things for during the week. I’m sure she’ll take me. I hope you’ve all had a good Friday!
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have a good day ahead! Or if its night or evening for you now, I hope your fridays been awesome!
I didnt get much sleep last night, I slept in the afternoon, woke up around 5 PM, stayed up until 7:30 but then got super tired, went to bed and got up again around 9:30, but couldnt stay up, so just took my meds, and went back to bed until 11:30.
Happy to say taking the meds is working out really well, we havent missed any doses! I am so proud of us! We’re really working so hard on remembering them!
My PA Frances is coming at 9 AM, and I have to go grocery shopping, the plan is to walk the 25 minute walk to the grocery store. I need the exercise, it will help with my weight loss. Plus the weather is dry, and walking will be nice, I need the fresh air.
After we get back and put the food away, she’ll clean the house. hen in the afternoon I have work. Its my first day back after a few weeks off. I am excited to go back and I hope I’ll have a good shift.
I’m not going to my parents house this weekend. I’ve decided to stay home with Nitro. My friend might come over on Saturday, but if she doesnt, thats fine. The nurses from the weekend team will visit me also. I will just chill out and relax with my book and the TV.
I did decide to go to my parents house for dinner on sunday though. I’ll just go for a few hours, and come back home again.
