The plan!

So we were going to stay home today, but then we decided that we’d go to the basement club for a few hours. Our friend Norma is picking us up this morning at 10. We’ll go spend about 3 hours at the basement club, then come back to normas house for a few hours. I think it will be good for us to get out and about. Plus now that our college work is done, we dont have to worry about that. So it will be good for our depression to go spend time with other people. I am feeling pretty good right now. Its a nice day out too which is cool. The sun is shining. Always makes me feel more positive when the sun shines. I didnt sleep much but I have had my coffee this morning so the tired feelings have gone away for now at least. Looking forward to hanging out with my friend after spending time at the basement club also. It will be nice to catch up with her.


Hanging out with my friend

So i am at my friends house. I got here a little while ago. We aren’t doing anything special, just hanging out and chatting. It’s nice. I like spending time with her, its my friend Norma. She’s blind like me and she has mental health difficulties so we have a lot in common. We’ve been discussing books we’ve read recently, and we’ve also been chatting about our mentors, as she also has a mentor at the basement club, she goes there too like i do. I’ll stay here for about 3 hours I’d say. When i got here her pa was here and she made me a coffee, she makes a mean cup of coffee. 🙂 it was so cool that she did that for me. I got a taxi here, and the partnership where i volunteer for friendly call pays for the taxi’s to Norma’s house, as they consider me to be visiting her and its kinda part of what i do for them as she’s a client of friendly call also.

Fowc with fandango…double

Welcome to June 2, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “double.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No
holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in
the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually
add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

When I was in the bording school, I had a friend who had glass eyes. We used to play tricks on people with them. We used to take out her eyes, and put them in places where others would find them, like at the bottom of a glass, or we’d leave them on her bedside locker for staff to find.

The staff would find them and shriek at us, you guys are in trouble! Double trouble!

It was hilarious to us. We got such a kick out of it!

There was a lot of trauma and stuff going on there, a lot of bad things happened, but that memory of us hiding her eyes and waiting to see what would happen, that’s one of the good memories I have of the place.

And she was my best friend, too. We did everything together. When I was being abused, she was the first one to know. She encouraged me to tell someone, and get help. I never did, for years, but she’d encourage me that I should tell.

Upon reading fandango’s word today, I had fond memories of our adventures together, with her eyes.

FOWC with Fandango — Double

Fridays plans!

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!


Parents friend

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.


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.
