Insomniac at 4 AM

I am wide awake. I cant sleep. At least my headache is gone. Thank god!
I’m full of anxious thoughts. Full of awful anxious feelings. Anxiety is awful I am so over it and I wish it would just disappear.
I was feeling cold, so put my heat on, and turned on the radio, there is a repeat of this mornings talk show on. I have already heard it, but mostly I put the radio on for background noise.
My friend Norma said she’d come over this morning, she’s going to bring me some gloves, disposable gloves to use when I go to the ATM machine tomorrow, because well, you don’t know whose been using it before you so its a good idea to wear the gloves when touching it. Well I think so anyway.
I did sleep a little bit, but I wish I’d gotten a bit more sleep. I dozed on and off, but I couldnt fall into a deep sleep. I am too worked up. This coronavirus has me so anxious.
I’m worried about my sister now possibly having it, she’s been around me and so I am worried in case I will catch it too. Its a huge worry too in case my mom will catch it. Dont know what I’d do if anything was to happen to my mom. Will just have to hope that the lady who my sister worked for doesnt have it and so she couldnt have passed it on to her.
I’m gonna go make a cup of coffee, I need a caffeine fix. Lol. 😀

My sister and coronavirus

My sister works as a health care assistant. She goes into peoples homes and cares for them. Last week she started working with a new client, and, today her job called her to tell her that the client in question was in contact with someone who had coronavirus.
Needless to say my sister is very scared now. She was so stressed out when she came over to my house. The girl who called her from her job, wanted to know if she was happy to continue going in to the lady, as she’s showing no symptoms, of course, my sister said that no, she wasnt comfortable doing that. and she wouldnt continue to go to her house and work with her.
They told my sister that the lady will be in the clear once march 31st rolls around, if she still hasnt shown any symptoms. I really really hope my sister is going to be ok! I hope she doesnt have it, because she’s been in contact with me, with our parents, and with her own family and her other clients from her job.
I am very anxious now, and so worried!
I do not want to catch this virus! And I dont want any of my family members to have it either especially my mom!
Please pray none of us have it!

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.

Who won the week March 8th edition

Its time for who won the week, which is fandangos challenge. The challenge for us is to say who won the week for us, it can be a family member, a friend, a celeb, a politician, anyone!

This week, I hand the trophy to my wonderful sister Laura!
She helped me to apply for my visa so that I can go to the USA in May! Without her help, I dont think I’d have managed to complete my application!
I am so grateful to her for her help!
Also, she drives me places, and I’d be lost without her, its a great thing that she has a car!
So she won the week for me this week, thank you Laura!
😀

Grocery shop

I just got home a little bit ago. I went to the grocery store with my mum and my sister. I had to do some grocery shopping. I got a lot of nice things so I have plenty of food for the week now. I’m even making fajitas this week, I got a fajita kit and will make chicken fajitas. I’m looking forward to having them. I also got a ton of fruit and some water and some Coke and other bits and pieces that I needed. My mum running to the store for me while I waited in the car which was nice because it meant I could rest and just be on my phone. The main reason she did that for me was because we had the dog with us. I didn’t have his harness with me so I couldn’t bring him into the store. So I just stayed in the car and was on Facebook and looking at email. My nephew stayed with me he’s seven. He was watching YouTube on his mum’s phone. When my mum got done we came up to my house and she help me put all the food away. Then she cleaned my yard. No I’m just resting for a little while. Mum left about a half an hour a go. We are under a severe weather warning tonight. There is a weather warning for snow and ice. There’s also a weather warning for wind and I think rain as well before the snow and ice. If it does snow I won’t be able to go to therapy in the morning. I also won’t be able to start my mobility lessons tomorrow if it snows hard. So we’ll see what happens. But for now I’m just having a nice relaxing chilled out evening at home.

Putting on makeup as a blind person

So earlier today I posted pics of myself with my makeup all done.

I did that makeup myself. I’ve never done that before. Every time I wear makeup I always get someone else to put it on for me.

For christmas my sister gave me really good makeup. It was an expensive brand. One she uses and one she’s used on me before as well.

Today I decided to try it out and I decided I’d do it myself. Its not easy being blind and applying makeup. I got my sister to sit with me while I attempted to apply it. I wanted her to tell me what I had to do to get it right.

It turned out nice. Of course my mom and sister did laugh a few times, because I was doing it wrong. I had to tell them to quit it as it was making me feel bad. They said though when I got done and was finished that I did good.

Even my 11 year old niece said, for a person who cant see what they are doing, you did well. That meant so much to me.

I am going to practice putting the make up on for a few days, and then if I keep getting it right, I will wear a little every day. Just a little foundation, powder and blush and maybe a little eye shadow as well. I’m not able to apply the lipstick too good by myself, so I think for now I’ll just use lip gloss.

I’m happy with how it all turned out. I’m happy too that I’ve got good makeup now that I can wear daily if I choose to do that.

A fun day out at christmas time

Mom and my sister and me are going to a local shopping centre this afternoon to do a little more christmas shopping. I dont really have to do much, I have everything taken care of, but I do need to change some x box games I got for my nephew, so I’ll do that, and I also need to pick up a few lottery tickets, christmas cards etc. My dad asked me to get him some chocolate, so I’ll also get that. My sister is going to buy a few things for Lauren for christmas, she doesnt know exactly what she is going to get her, so she wants to look around to see what she can find. Lauren is at that age where she doesnt play with toys, and she has most electronics, a phone etc. So what do you buy her? I got her the headset for the x box, and a gift voucher to a clothing store she likes to shop at, so I have her gift sorted. It will be nice to go out for the day. Not sure if we’ll eat out or not, we might, we’ll see how it goes. My nephew has a birthday party to go to, so my sister will drop him off there before we hit the shops. Mom wants to also have my sister pick out a jeans and top which will be her gift from mom and dad this christmas. Mom bought me a lovely top with a red roses pattern on it. She also bought me some nice checky leggings, and she said she’ll get me a black dress top to go with those. Those are my main christmas gifts, but I am sure she’s gotten me a few surprises as well, she always does. Now that its the 1st of December, I am excited. The christmas atmosphere is all around, and, I love it.
