Monday night update

So I havent done much today besides go to therapy. That was draining and took most of my energy. The rest of today I spent at home chilling out. Doing nothing but being online and watching tv. We’re getting really stormy weather tonight here, rain, wind, the rain is very heavy, the wind is blustery, it is supposed to storm for the next two days at least. We even have flood warnings. I hope it doesnt get too bad as I have to go out tomorrow. I’ll still go out even if it is bad as I will mostly be in a car so it wont really matter to me as I wont get too wet. I made potato cakes for dinner, indian style, they were delicious. They had lots of spices in them. I must say I really enjoyed them. I am going to try to head to bed soon and read for a while I think. I’m not sure I’ll sleep much tonight if the wind keeps howling the way it is right now. We’ll see though I guess.

Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday everyone! How are you all doing!

Me I am fine. Feeling much better than I did last night. Which is nice!

I slept well which I am grateful for. Nitro slept well too! I think all that walking yesterday exhausted him! I did have to get up with him during the night though. He needed to go out. He came over and was peering into my face. So I got up and let him out and then we both fell back into a deep sleep.

I had weird dreams again though. I woke with a start a few times during the night. Luckily though I was able to go back to sleep again.

I am heading out this afternoon. I am going to my friend Normas house for a few hours. We’ll just hang out with each other and chat. I like doing that. Its nice to just hang out. I haven’t seen her in over 2 weeks now so it will be nice to catch up with her.

My mom and sister are going out too. They are bringing the kids to a local park. The weather is cooperating today, its dry, although tomorrow its meant to rain a lot here. And next week we are meant to get the tail end of hurricane Florence.

I am going to stay at mom and dads until Monday. I will go to therapy on Monday morning and in the afternoon my sister will drop me home.

Well that’s all for now. I have no more to say for now. Catch you all later.

Friendly call

Well I managed to get here finally. About to start my shift soon. In like five mins.

My ride was late. My supervisor was picking me up. She got lost though and couldn’t remember where I lived.

Anyway we’re here now. We did finally make it.

We’re going to have a busy afternoon. There is hardly any staff here today. So we’re under a little pressure. But the two of us, my supervisor and myself we’ll manage.

So here I go…the next few hours will be very very busy.

Early start

So I woke up at 4:30 this morning. I had gone to bed early and I slept well. I was so glad about that. Its hard for us so much of the time to sleep, that when we do get a good sleep its wonderful.

I had weird dreams though. I was dreaming about my autistic cousin. I cant remember the dream now but I know it was a weird one. I woke up feeling a little disconcerted. I think that topic seems like it was a weird thing to dream about. I wasn’t even thinking about my cousin before going to sleep.

I’ve showered now and its not even 7 AM yet. I feel great after my shower. I put this lovely vanilla lotion on and it smells so good. Then I also put my flowers perfume by kenzo on. It just smells so gorgeous.

My PA is coming at 9. Its our second week together. We are going to do housework and maybe go for a walk if the weather cooperates. It looks like it will stay dry though. I hope so as I really want to get out and go walking.

Im also going volunteering later today in the afternoon. I have to call my supervisor this morning to see if she can pick me up. The likelihood is she can or if she cant, then her colleague trish will do it.

/after volunteering I will head to my parents house for the weekend, like I do every weekend. So a busy Friday is in store. My PA will be here until 1 PM. So for four hours in total.

Cute moment with my nephew

Over the weekend, I promised my nephew that I’d give him a fidget spinner that I had, that someone gave me, but that I didn’t want any longer. He was delighted, and very enthusiastic about it.

On sunday when I went home to my own house from my parents, I meant to get it and give it to him. He didn’t come with us as he was out with his cousins then. I totally forgot to get it and give it to my mom to give to him. Naturally he was very upset about this. He wanted my sister to go back to my house to get it.

So I promised him that today I’d give it to him. And when he arrived with my mom I had it ready for him. He was thrilled and gave me a huge hug. A simple little fidget spinner, makes him so happy. How cute is that.

With all the tech gadgets, tablet, phone, etc, who’d have thought a fidget spinner would make his day? Its just so simple. I am very happy that I could make him happy. I will treasure his hug. It is going on my things to be thankful for list for today.

Outing today with my volunteer group!

Today we are off out with our volunteer group. There is an outing happening. An outing to a heritage centre. We’ll be touring the centre and then having some coffee and food.
Its a chance to meet the clients. I’ve never been to one of the outings they hold before. So I am delighted to be going!
I think it will be so much fun! I love that I’ll get to meet some of the clients that I call! I will be taking Nitro with me so he will get to make new friends too!
I’m being picked up at about 12 PM. I cant wit!
I actually wasnt going to go at all! But I just called my supervisor and was honest with her, I asked her if it would be too much for me to go, since I knew she had a bunch of elderly people with walkers and people who arent very mobile to look after!
She said no not at all, she wanted me to go!
How sweet of her! So I am going!
I know it will be a great day! And after last night and our little mishap we need a nice day out.
