So tomorrow is going to be a chill day. I am so relieved! I’ve been so busy lately. I need a day or two to just chill out!
My moms going to come over for an hour or two and I am going to help her with her forms for disability, she says I am good at wording things, she needs to say how her COPD is effecting her life, and she wants me to help her word it correctly.
She’s bringing me lunch, some soup and a sandwich. Its homemade soup yum yum! She’s also cooking some chicken for me and seasoning it with hot korean pepper spices! I love them! I will have that for dinner with a baked potato.
I will have my PA coming in the evening tomorrow. She’ll just do some housework. Other than those two things, I can have a chill day, I will enjoy my relaxation time!
I napped again today, but that is fine, as no plans tomorrow or on thursday, so that gives me a little leeway to get my sleep back in order.
Me and Nitro are enjoying some quiet time now. I watched an episode of my 600 pound life on tv, it was so sad. The lady who was on it was 640 pounds, and she was trying to get weight loss surgery to help her lose some weight. She was only 34 years old.
Then I started watching abducted in plain sight, a documentary on net flicks, a true crime documentary. I only watched half of it, and will watch the other half tomorrow evening.
I will also watch operation transformation tomorrow evening, after my PA leaves. Ok well, I am off to make some tea! Emily wants a cup of tea and then we will read for a little while!
I’ve just spent 20 minutes unblocking my shower drain with my mom. It was so disgusting. There was so much hair down there. We used a whole bottle of mister muscle drain cleaner on it, it was that bad. There was even some of Nitros hair down there. How that got there I dont know! My mom thinks I brought it in to the bathroom on my feet. I hate cleaning the drain. The smell is awful. I hope I dont have to do it again for a while. It should be fine now for at least another six months. All going well I mean. What a horrible job though! I absolutely hated doing it but it has to be done!
And I badly needed it!
I slept in late, really, really late. I didnt get out of bed until after 1 this afternoon! I was glad to be able to just stay in bed and relax. I havent been sleeping great so I caught up on my rest.
I’ve done nothing all day today besides read, eat, read some more, go online, and make a few phone calls.
I feel all the better for having a chill sorta day!
Tomorrows looking like it will be more of the same, but my mom is coming over, and we might go spend my gift voucher that my sister got me for christmas. She got me a voucher to a clothing store I love, so I might go see what their sale is like and see if I can pick up a few bits to wear.
Maybe I’ll even model what I get for photos and post the pics on here!
We’ll see. If I feel like it I just might do that.
Other than that, me and mom are probably just going to hang out, chat, and mom wants to help me do a few bits around the house, plus she will clean my yard, thank god I have her to do that for me! I never know where Nitro goes because he usually doesnt stick to the same spot!
I had to text Eileen too earlier, I forgot the time of our session on Tuesday! She texted me back and told me and so the panic was averted!
And of course it was great to connect with her!
Thankful for therapy on tuesday and happy to be seeing Dr. Barry on Monday!
Happy wednesday! I am so glad its wednesday! half the week is over, yay!
How are you all doing?
I am doing very well! I slept well which was awesome! I am so glad I slept well last night! I was in bed last night by 10 PM and asleep by 10:30. I got a good solid 5 or six hours!
this morning I go see dr. barry! I am so looking forward to our appointment. I love seeing her, as we always talk about a lot. Today will be no exception. I need to tell her that Eileens home. I also need to tell her my sleep is a bit better. And I also need to talk to her about the prazosin, I have to come off of it since the wholesale supplier isnt supplying it any longer. I hope she can find an alternative for me.
I also need to get my trevicta shot from the clinic nurse. I cant believe its been 3 months already since I got my last one!
I hope the wait before I see dr. barry wont be too long. I hate all the waiting. I get so bored. Maybe I’ll bring a book and read that. Or go on my phone and go on facebook or something.
After my apt with dr. barry moms coming over to my place for an hour, she’s going to cut my grass, and she’s going to clean up the dog poop in my yard. My sisters going to drop her off on her way to work. I’ll probably just have lunch while she’s doing those things.
Then this evening at 5:30 my Pa comes. We’re going to walk Nitro. I’ll probably do the same walk that I did last week. That takes an hour to complete. Its a nice walk. Weather permitting of course. I hope the weather stays good so we can get out. I enjoy the walking and we talk as we walk which is nice. Nitro needs the exercise and so do I! It keeps me fit!
So thats my day in a nutshell! What does your day look like? Have you anything planned?
I am having a quiet day at home. I am glad for the rest. I didnt go to bed until after 5 AM, I wanted to be asleep, but it just wasnt coming. So at around 3:30 I lay down, but I didnt fall asleep until well after 5 AM. I slept until around 8:30, then I got up and fed nitro, had a cup of tea and decided to go back to bed for a while longer. I was able to get another 2 hours of sleep which was nice. The phone woke me. It was the nurse who gives me my 3 monthly shot, apparently I was due to get it today but I forgot about it. It was fine though, I can get it next week. I cant believe I forgot about it. Mom came over to my house for about an hour. She cleaned up the dog poop, and did a few other bits for me. It was nice to see her. I had my lunch while she was here. Now I’m feeling tired again, not sure why that is. My PA will be here at 5:30 this evening. We’re going to take Nitro out for a long walk. He needs a good run. He hasnt been getting much exercise lately so it will be good for him to go out for a long walk. I might take another nap before she arrives. I feel like I need one.
Well I am home in my own house! I came home today. Mom came with me as she wanted to cut my grass. She’s so good to me. She does my front and back garden, cuts it, and its hard for her as she has COPD, but she still does it. I am so grateful to her for doing it for me. She said she’ll do it as long as she’s able to even though I told her she didnt have to. I told her I could get Brenda, my supervisor on friendly call to get one of the workers who work for the partnership to cut the lawns. Mom said no though. She said she’d prefer to do it herself. We went to my house very early, because mom said it looked like it was going to rain, she wasnt wrong. I checked with alexa, and there are thunderstorms forecast this afternoon. I hope that is not true though. I hope Alexas wrong about it. Our littles are terrified of thunder, and so is nitro, so I really hope there wont be any storms today. Mom just left about a half hour ago. I am going to watch some tv now. Then read for a while I think. I’ve already had my lunch, on the sleep front, I slept well again last night, which is brilliant, I got a good 7 hours of solid sleep. I am very happy about it.
I’ve had a really productive afternoon! I got all of my groceries, mom went with me to get them. So now I am all set for the week! And I dont have to go out with my PA on Tuesday. I spent the bones of 60 euro, mostly on fruit, chicken, and cleaning stuff for the house. I did treat myself to some pringles, as when I have a sandwich I like to have a few with it. I got sweet chili kind, and prawn cocktail flavoured ones. I bought some corned beef to put in my sandwiches, yum. The good stuff, what we call the real corned beef, not the stuff out of a packet. I also bought myself some salted peanuts, as I do like to nibble on them sometimes. Other than that though I didnt get any other junk foods. I did get rice crackers, which are my new addiction, I bought cheese kind, and salt and vinegar flavoured ones. My aunt drove us to the store, as she had to get a few things there too. I’m thrilled to have gotten the shopping done. I really prefer doing my shopping with my mom, as she knows what I like. I dont have to explain to her about what brands I want etc. I also got myself some sweet potato fries, and some quarn chicken nuggets, the quarn ones are really healthy. I love them. So now that the groceries are taken care of, I’ll be able to focus on housework with my PA on Tuesday. And I do have a few things that I need her to do for me. So we can spend the morning cleaning, and then my house will look fantastic. The lady who rang up our groceries for us was very rude, I was tempted to ask her what her problem was. But then I didnt actually do it. She was really ignorant, she didnt smile at us, she didnt make conversation, she seemed to hate her job. I dont know why people go into that sort of job where they are dealing with the public if they dont want to be in it. We wont go to her again if we can help it.
