Half a day!

today I get to go home early from the ILS course. Noelle who is my tutor said I can take a half day because I am still not feeling too good.
I’m like yay! half a day thats great!
Gives me time to go home, turn on the heat, and enjoy a nice relaxed afternoon.
My PA nuala will be here this evening at 5:30, she will do my grocery shopping for me, I need to write out my list though of what I want to buy.
I’m not going to over buy because I will be going to mom and dads over the weekend for a couple nights.
We were meant to be going to the local st. patricks day parade tomorrow, mom, my sis, and me, and the two kids. But now that moms not feeling good, we arent going.
So what I might do is go visit my friend norma instead. I’ll see how I feel tomorrow. If I dont go visit her tomorrow I’ll go on monday, because monday here is a bank holiday.
What is everyone else doing this weekend?

Update on mom

so turns out mom is gonna be ok, thank goodness.
they ran tests in the ER, she had a chest x ray and some bloods taken to see if there was a clot in her lungs. there wasnt. and the doctor said the x ray showed no signs of infection in the lungs either.
he told her she shouldnt have tried to go out this afternoon to get groceries, that she should have stayed home and rested after seeing the gp.
anyway, he said he’d send her an apt to go to the COPD outreach clinic, that will take about a week to organise.
So in the meantime he told her to contine to religiously take her inhalers, and also she is to finish her course of steroids.
I’m so glad she’s ok. Thank you for all of the prayers and kind thoughts you sent earlier today. They were very appreciated.

Buy me a coffee

hi guys
so this morning I set up a page on ko-fi.com. I’d love it if some of you could support me by donating and buying me some cups of coffee!
It would really help with my anxiety if I was able to get out with friends for coffee more often.
If you can support me by donating my link is

I’d be really grateful!

#JusJoJan jan 29th, fantastic

I have fantastic friends. i dont know where I’d be without them. they are there for me through thick and thin. It feels so good that I have friends who love me unconditionally and who I can count on.
I believe that is so important.
All of my friends are amazing in their own way. Each of them brings different qualities to my life.
I can honestly say when I am with them I feel fantastic too.

hanging out with my friend

so our friend just left. we had fun hanging out. we got take out food and just sat chatting. we got pizza, mexican kind, it was yummy. the kids didnt like it but i let them get fries, with garlic mayo and cheese on top. they were thrilled to get a treat. and i was like, all my hard work went out the window! but they deserve a treat. we have the rest of the week to be healthy. and you only live once, right? anyway. it was a nice way to spend a saturday evening. now that she’s gone i plan on vegging out in my bedroom. reading for a while, am going to snuggle under my duvet to do that. its been a good day.
