Update 08-18-2015

I got up early this morning despite having gone to bed kind of late. It was about 11:30 when I got into bed. Unfortunately I woke several times during the night. Its a pattern now and I cant seem to break it. Its so frustrating as I feel like I havent really slept then. When I got up I made coffee and did my email, and caught up n some blog posts. I’m way behind on peoples blogs though. I’m at least a couple of weeks behind. My PA was coming at 9 AM. She called at 8:30 to say she’d be a few minutes late because she had to drop her kids off at her moms house. When she got here we sat and ate breakfast together. I had a yogurt and some toast. Over the weekend I got a little off track with my weight loss plan but I’ve gotten back on track now again. When I came home I weighed myself and the scales said I’d gone up a pound, and this morning I weighed myself again and it said I’d lost it so I was happy. After breakfast we sat chatting for a while and browsing on facebook. We both have I phones and we’re both on facebook. Then she did my vacuming and made my bed and did my ironing. I turned on my tv, something I rarely do during the day and watched the simpsons and come dine with me. Then I realised I’d forgotten to take out my meat so I took my chicken out and defrosted it in the microwave. It was my first time defrosting meat in the microwave. I hope I’ve done it right. Its 1 PM now and my PA has just left. My home help will be here in half an hour to help me cook some food. I’m going to cook sweet and sour chicken with rice. Yesterday I read a post on facebook from a blind person named Jessica who lives near me, she writes a blog and was asking if anyone would like to be interviewed for her blog. I told her I had did and ptsd as well as my blindness and I’d like to do an interview for her blog. She is currently researching did and said she’d write me with a list of some questions I could answer. Then this morning another person messaged me and asked me if I’d like to be part of their podcast which deals with accessibility and disability. I said yes I would. They said they’d been reading my blog and found it to be fascinating and would like to talk to me. So its nice to be gaining readers and putting myself out there and being featured on blogs and podcasts. Not doing much for the rest of today after my home help leaves. Will probably read and watch tv and text my friends and catch up on more blog posts.
