So the weekend was pretty good. I had a relaxing one. The one thing I did do was go to my cousins 18th birthday party yesterday. It was a meal for some of the family, and then we had drinks too after the meal. We had a great day and I really enjoyed myself. It was nice after a busy week to just be able to relax. I also caught up on sleep on Saturday night. I went to bed really early and was reading my book, fell asleep in the middle of a chapter, and slept for 13 hours straight! No kidding. Speaking of books, I’ve finished the girl in the mirror by Cathy glass. I’ll do a review later today. It was a pretty good book I thought. Tonight I’m going to start girl alone, her new book that just came out last week. I stayed at mom and dads on both Saturday and last night. I always stay on Saturday night but I just decided that it would be better if I stayed last night too since we were going to that party. I am happy the weekend was relaxing, it sets me up for a good week ahead.

Its been a pretty good weekend. Yesterday morning my pa came as she always does on saturday morning. she cleaned my house for me, did things like vacuming, washed dishes, putting laundry on to wash, mopped the floors etc. Then we went to the vets to get Nitros food and have him weighed. He’s lost another kilo, thats 2.2 pounds. Now he’s 35.1 kilos, or about 72 pounds. So he’s a pretty good weight. But he still has to lose another 2 or so pounds. The vet said he looks fabulous though. She kept calling him niro instead of nitro lol. A lot of people do that. after the vets we went to the beauticians so i could get my lip and eyebrows waxed. I usually dont mind the pain of the waxing but yesterday it kinda hurt a lot. i was glad when it was all over. after the beauticians we went to get my groceries. i went to aldie’s, which is a pretty cheap store and i managed to get lots without spending an astronomical amount of money. So I was pretty pleased with myself about that. We came back to my house then and I had lunch. Then I had a thought to enqure about possibly going away for a spa weekend, me and my sister had talked about possibly giving our mom a present for xmas of a weekend break to a hotel and spa, of course we’d go too. so i spent some time pricing those weekends. then i got my pa to drop me to moms house. the rest of saturday afternoon was nice. i went to a local park with my mom and sister and the two kids. unfortunately i had to sit in the car because there was lots of wasps and i am terrified to be anywhere near them. they kept trying to land on me because i had perfume on. after the kids finished in the park we decided to go for a walk, there is a trail you can walk on which is nice, and i did end up going on the walk too. it took about half an hour and it was really good and at least i got my exercise in for the day. after that came back to moms, ate dinner, and then watched some tv. then last night my two aunts came to my moms, and mom and them had some drinks but i didnt. because i am watching my weight i havent drank in over 2 months. i layed in bed late today and its been a pretty relaxed sorta day. had dinner and then came back home to my own house. now getting organised for college tomorrow. will be starting tomorrow and am so nervous but also excited about it. i bought a new outfit of jeans and a new dress top to wear tomorrow. i have to leave the house at 9:45 AM, since its only our first week its different times to what it will be going forward. i’m excited to meet staff and students and see who is gonna be on the course with me.
Yesterday I stayed home all day. I didnt get up to very much. I kinda just had a lazy day. My home help came and helped me cook. Other than that I didnt see anyone but I did facetime with my friend Sarah. Twice. That was fun. I read some of my book the girl in the mirror by Cathy Glass. I’m on chapter 9 now. I like it but I prefer her foster care memoirs to her novels. They’re more gripping and they are page turners, where as her novels arent. But I will read it anyway, still though cant wait for her new book girl alone to come out in september. Mom came over this morning to help me sort out all of my clothes. We recycled some stuff that I dont use or ware and we sorted the rest of them so that I know whats what for school and what clothes I have that fit me. I found two brand new pairs of jeans that I bought months ago but never wore because they were too tight. Now they fit me perfectly. Am so happy about that. It saves me some money because I was gonna buy some new jeans on Friday. Mom also cut my grass in the back yard and front of the house. She also made me breakfast which was nice since usually I make my own. I got my water bill and I had to speak to someone about it and was trying to get through to their customer services department for ages but couldnt. Eventually I realised there was a problem with my phone and I thought I’d been cut off. But I wasnt cut off, the problem was with the phone company. Its all fixed again now and I finally did get through and speak to someone and the problem with my bill is sorted. I had my dr Barry apt this afternoon. That went really well. I told her about my weight loss and she was delighted for me. We talked about starting school, and before I left she wished me luck for starting on Monday. We talked about a couple other things too. Mostly about the plan Mark and I made, therapy, system stuff etc. It was a great apt and I left feeling great. Came home then, ate my dinner, fed Nitro, and am now chilling out playing on facebook, doing email, watching tv, etc. Its really been a good couple of days. My mood is good. I feel fantastic. I’m happy and positive. I like this feeling.
