What day is it anyway? Tuesday March 24th

My day so far 3:22 PM!
I didnt get much sleep last night, maybe got about 2 hours, that was it. Surprisingly though I am not at all tired from lack of sleep!
My PA came this morning at 9 AM, and we took Nitro out for a walk. We walked for an hour. I felt so amazing when I arrived home. I think walking has really helped to boost my mood!
Other than my walk with Nitro, I havent done much today. A friend visited for an hour, it was nice to see her.
The plans for the evening are to chill with a book, watch some netflix and facetime with my friend sarah.
Are you having a good day?
Our governement is meant to make an announcement this afternoon about restrictions that are set to be put in place in ireland. Already they’ve said that schools will remain closed after March 29th, and all restaurants and cafes are to close their doors today. As for what else will be put in place, we’ll just have to wait and see what they’ll say.
I’ve decided though now that if we do go on complete lockdown today I’m staying here at home. I had a rethink, and it will be better if I stay at home. Especially so I can do my therapy sessions with eileen, and my conference calls with my slimming world group, and also working from my home is better than trying to work from my parents house.
I hope your all having a great day!

I love my baby sis

I just love my sister. She’s such a huge help to me. With my mom having to stay home just in case she catches the coronavirus, my sister came over today to my house and cleaned my yard, she cleaned the dog poop. And she washed dishes, cleaned my kitchen, hung out laundry and did a couple other things. We had a good catch up. She came over in between jobs. So she was going on to work after stopping by at my house. She stayed here for about an hour. It was nice to see her. Other than my PA on Tuesday and my slimming world consultant on Monday, I havent really seen anyone other than my next door neighbour. I dont know when I am going to see my mom again. For now I need to just stay home and not go out. Its hard, sometimes boring, but it is what needs to happen. I wont see anyone now until Friday morning, when my pa will come again. I’ll have to go out then which will be nice. I am nervous about leaving the house, but today during our therapy session eileen encouraged me to go for small walks if I could. She said its good to get resh air. I agree it is. I worked this afternoon. I made my calls and that went well. All of my clients were in a good space all except one who was feeling very down and depressed. I think I cheered her up though as she said she was delighted to hear from me. I rang my supervisor after I finished my calls to give her an update. She said next week we’d be changing the lists around so I would have different clients to call next week. Thats good as I think if the same client had the same volunteer every day for weeks on end it would get boring. right. Am off to make a coffee now and then facetime my friend sarah.

Travel Update

I rang the travel agents this morning to find out what I needed to do regarding my trip in May. The girl I spoke to said that for now we just need to hold tight, the travel bann is on for 30 days, after 30 days Donald trump might revoke it. If not and if it goes on for longer, she said they’ll be putting measures in place to either refund people their money, or else you can rebook your flights for a later time. Personally I do think the bann will go on for longer than the 30 days. I’m pretty certain it will. I doubt this coronavirus will be over and done with in 30 days. If by some miracle the bann is only for a month, then I probably will end up going in may as planned. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. The last thing I wanna do is get sick, or get sick in another country but I’m being positive, and hoping for the best outcome possible. If all comes to all I’ll get a refund and just book the trip for later on in the year, it will all work out in the end i’m sure.

May be postponing my US trip to colorado

Ok so Donald trump has put a travel bann on people visiting the US from most of europe, he had excluded ireland and the UK, but from Monday the bann extends to both ireland and the UK also. The bann is for 30 days, but that could go on longer depending on how this coronavirus pans out.

So it is looking likely that I’ll have to postpone my visit to colorado to see Sarah. I’m going to ring the travel agent on Monday to see what they will say. If I am given an option to cancel the trip and get refunded I will, and then I will just rebook the trip when things die down.

I think given all thats going on with coronavirus, its the best option all around. I could go and get sick, and pass the virus on, or I could get sick and end up sick in another country and end up there for weeks if not months, so its best not to put myself in that predicament.

At least I can rebook the trip. I will still be able to go visit Sarah. It might just have to wait a little longer than we had planned.

We’re planning for me to go in july, or else early fall, we arent sure yet and we’re just waiting to see what happens with the coronavirus. At least my visa is valid for 2 years, thats good at least. Now the US ESTA visas arent being approved, since the bann is coming into effect, so mine was approved just in time!


I just got the news my US visa was granted! Yay! Now I can breathe easy! Provided our government doesnt put an embargo on traveling due to corona, I’ll be traveling to colorado to see my friend sarah in May! I cant wait!

I am so pumped! Sarah is also really excited! As are her insiders! She has did and she is also blind!

We’ll have a lot of fun together! Her insider Brandi, and our liz are buddies, and they are planning on having drinks together, and some of her kids and some of ours are buddies too, and they are planning on playing games, and watching cartoons and movies together.

I cant wait to give Sarah a huge hug! Everythings coming together now, I have my visa, my travel insurance, and all I need to do now is collect my tickets which wont be issues until 10 days before we leave!

Her mom is gonna pick me up at the airport. I am flying into denver, but Sarah lives in fort collins, about an hour from Denver.

Omg I am so excited! I hope the weather will be good, it probably will be, hoping for good weather as we’re going to go to rocky mountain national park, and drive up to the top, so that I can have my picture taken at the top of the mountain!

May wont come soon enough! I want it to be may already!
