Well I am wide awake, at 2 AM. I cant sleep. I think I slept too much last night, and into this morning, oh well. I’ll just stay up I guess.
My PA Amanda isnt going to be coming today. She texted me earlier, she’s very sick, she has some sort of stomach issue, she went to out of hours doctor, and he sent her to the hospital.
So mom said she’d probably come over to help me clean the house a little bit. It needs a good cleaning, as Nitro is shedding like crazy. Plus I want someone here while the plumber is here fixing the shower, thats if he even shows up.
I will be going volunteering in the afternoon, one of my colleagues is picking me up at 12:45. Then I will go to my parents for the weekend.
We have my cousins communion on Saturday, I’m only going to the church, I will not go to the after party, I dont want to go as there will be a lot of food there and I dont want to sabotage my weight loss.
I might go visit my friend Rose instead on Saturday. We will see. She texted me earlier and invited me up to her house for a visit, so I will probably do that.
I hope everyones friday is good!
So I have two facebook accounts. One of them is under my name, and another is under our legal name. I keep getting random friend requests from weirdos on the one which is under our legal name, so, I’ve stopped using it. I can do without that shit! I don’t want to friend weirdos. This one gal got through somehow and she told me she worked for head office of facebook in California. As if. I blocked her and then logged out of that account. I shall now only use my carol anne one. So if anyone here wants to add me on fb see below.
Carol Anne on facebook!
My parents are going to visit their long time friend this morning. He’s dying. He hasn’t got long to live.
He’s been asking to see them. He’s got a tumour on his lung. Poor guy. I feel for him.
I don’t envy them having to visit him, I think it will be hard, visiting someone whose dying isn’t going to be easy.
What do you say? How do you handle it? I don’t think I could do it.
I do think though that its good they will go, before he passes on. It will be good for them to be able to say a goodbye. This may be the last time they see him.
So what did I do for self care today? Good question. I did do some small things. So I thought I’d list what I’ve done. Since I spoke about tackling this issue the other day in a post.
Drank water. I am trying to drink lots of water, both to flush this kidney infection out of my system, but also for my weight loss, water helps in that department.
Had a bubble bath. I love my bubble baths. Being able to do that at my parents house is bliss. I don’t have a bath tub in my own house, only a shower, so having that luxury at my parents is nice.
Journaled. Writing always helps me. I enjoy it. I am glad I made time to do that today.
Ate healthily. I’m being very mindful of what I am eating. I want to be down at weigh in this week! I do plan in going to my weigh in, even though I have this damn kidney infection. I don’t want to miss that.
Texted with friends. Some of my friends have texted to see how I am doing. Its so sweet of them. So I spent some time answering their texts today and that felt nice and was really good to get their supportive messages.
What about you? What have you done for self care today?
I delight in the small things!
I feel delighted that my pain levels have decreased! I am so happy!
I delight that I have my dog, who brings me so much comfort. He is my world. Where would I be without him?
I made myself a coffee, I delight at the smell of it.
I delight in laughter, watching a comedian on tv.
I think its time I payed more attention to self care, its time I delight in all that is good, and emotionally healthy for me.
I delight in the fact its the weekend! I love my weekends!
I also delight in the fact that my friend helped me to do an assignment for college! She’s so awesome for helping me with it! I would have been so lost otherwise.
Now all I need to do is write out my notes for my presentation! Which she said she’d also help me with!
I am so thankful for good friends! Its such a delight to have such great friends.
I’m happy tonight. I delight in that fact.
When troubles come your soul to try
You love the friend who just stands by.
Perhaps there’s nothing they can do
The thing is strictly up to you.
For there are troubles all your own
And paths the soul must tread alone.
Times when love can’t smooth the road
Nor friendship lift the heavy load.
But just to feel you have a friend
Who will stand by until the end.
Whose sympathy through all endures
Whose warm handclasp is always yours.
It helps somehow to pull you through
Although there’s nothing they can do.
And so with fervent heart we cry
God Bless the friend who just stands by.
