My sister and me had a similar idea tonight. We both drank some gins. I only had the one, but she was on her second one when she texted me.
It was gin that I’d got for her. I made her up a gift basket for christmas, and I put 4 cans of gin in it.
We were texting each other for a while, since my mom was on the phone with her sister. So I decided I’d text with Laura.
We’ve been texting each other a lot more lately. She even sent me pics of Lauren and davin on christmas morning, opening their gifts.
We have become very close, and I am so grateful for the strong bond we have. It wasnt always that way for us, but as we’ve aged our bond has grown stronger.
I am so so glad, as I only have the one sister, and no brothers. Its nice that we can depend on one another.
I woke up early. LikeI think it was about 2 AM! But I had slept for 7 hours straight so I feel great!
I am going to ring my supervisor in a little while and ask her if she needs extra staff in the office today. I just feel like going in and doing an extra shift. I dont have anything else on today, and I know they could use the help.
I had a nice chat with my friend sarah last night. We texted for a while. I also had a little bit of a text chat to my friend lisa. I spent the majority of the morning sorting out some files on my hard drives, and reading emails.
I am feeling amazing! I have to say it feels nice. Its nice to be able to say that I feel good. My mood is good. My anxiety is at about a 3. Thats doable. Its not making me feel bad at all today which I am delighted about.
Its a great day! Happy Thursday!
EILEEN JUST RESPONDED TO MY TEXT FROM EARLIER. ITS 11:45 PM NOW. I GOT A BIT OF A SHOCK WHEN HER MESSAGE CAME IN. SHE SAID SHE HOPED SHE HADNT FRIGHTENED ME BY TEXTING THIS LATE. NO, BUT WELL, SHE NEVER DID THAT BEFORE SO I WAS TAKEN OFF GUARD.
HER MESSAGE WAS SWEET. SHE THANKED ME FOR THE MESSAGE I SENT EARLIER, WHICH WAS THANKING HER FOR OUR SESSION, AND THANKING HER FOR HOW KIND SHE WAS TO HILARY. SHE IS SUCH A SWEETHEART TO RESPOND TO US SO LATE, I DID TEXT HER BACK SAYING I DIDNT FEEL GOOD, AND I CANT SETTLE. SHE HASNT RESPONDED BUT I THINK SHE SENT THE MESSAGE AND THEN PUT HER PHONE AWAY UNTIL MORNING, SO SHE’LL PROBABLY RESPOND FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.
I LOVE THAT WE HAVE SUCH A CARING AND COMPASSIONATE THERAPIST!
Well I lay down at around 6 this evening. I thought I wont sleep, but I ended up napping, and only when my friend Denise texted me with our result did I wake up. She wanted me to call her, so I did. That woke me up but that was after a 3 hour nap. So now I am wide awake, and its late, I took my meds, my night meds, I am hoping I might go back to sleep soon.
I will try for sleep anyway. If I cant or don’t, it wont be the end of the world. I can lay around tomorrow, I don’t have to be anywhere tomorrow. All I will be doing is reading and relaxing.
Who do you text the most?
So what did I do for self care today? Good question. I did do some small things. So I thought I’d list what I’ve done. Since I spoke about tackling this issue the other day in a post.
Drank water. I am trying to drink lots of water, both to flush this kidney infection out of my system, but also for my weight loss, water helps in that department.
Had a bubble bath. I love my bubble baths. Being able to do that at my parents house is bliss. I don’t have a bath tub in my own house, only a shower, so having that luxury at my parents is nice.
Journaled. Writing always helps me. I enjoy it. I am glad I made time to do that today.
Ate healthily. I’m being very mindful of what I am eating. I want to be down at weigh in this week! I do plan in going to my weigh in, even though I have this damn kidney infection. I don’t want to miss that.
Texted with friends. Some of my friends have texted to see how I am doing. Its so sweet of them. So I spent some time answering their texts today and that felt nice and was really good to get their supportive messages.
What about you? What have you done for self care today?
