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.
I’m wide awake at almost 1:30 AM. I was so exhausted last night, the week caught up with me. I slept like a log and got up late today which is why I am awake now so late tonight. I’ve been thinking about a lot tonight. Mostly about the recent episode of dissociation we had that was very scary and really caught me off guard. The pattern of dissociation seems to have changed for us, not sure why but its something to work on in therapy, to try and figure it out. some of the kids are not doing well this week. allie is one, lexi is another. allie had some therapy time yesterday which I am glad about because it did her some good. she got a big hug from eileen and she was thrilled about that. I dont have any plans this weekend, I think I am just going to chill out and relax and have a quiet one. Next week I start full days in college so it will be exhausting and busy. I went to see the nutritionist today but I wasnt down any weight. I am maintaining though so thats a positive at least. I know what the problem is, lack of exercise. I need to work harder and exercise more. I’m hoping by exercising more I’ll be down next week.
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.
The weekend was quiet and mostly uneventful. On Saturday my PA came as per usual. She cleaned my house which she always does. She vacumed, mopped the floors, did the dishes, made the bed etc. Usually I get my groceries with her but I didnt really need much this week because I had a ton of food left since my last grocery shop a week ago. But we still went to the store and I got a few things. We were meant to have a BBQ at my sisters house, but it rained so it was canceled. So that meant there was no dinner plans so at the store I bought some chicken stir fry and some noodles and thats what I ended up eating. Actually we all had it cuz my sister came over with the kids and she also brought stir fry but her one was just vegetables and noodles. I also got some fruit at the store, melon and strawberries. It had been ages since I had strawberries and when I did eat them last night and today they were delicious. Also at the store we went into one of the restaurants and ate lunch. I ended up getting a rap with turkey, cheese and bacon in it. I joked with my PA that she ends up spending loads of money when she’s with me since she always buys some stuff whenever we go out. My PA dropped me to moms when we were done and I stayed there on Saturday night. The rest of Saturday was quiet. I was sad that the BBQ was canceled as I’d been looking forward to it. But being ireland our weather is so unpredictable. I watched X factor on Saturday night, the new series just started. Sunday was also a quiet day. I got up late, it was 11 AM before I got up. My sister and her family came for dinner, and then we spent the afternoon just chatting and stuff. My aunt was using my house to teach reiki so it was almost 7 when I got home. I have a busy week ahead with appointments with my therapist tomorrow, dr Barry on wednesday, and the nutritionist on Friday. I also need to go clothes shopping on Friday with my mom. I need some new jeans and a new fleece jacket. My home help just texted me a few minutes ago to say her back is giving her trouble so she might not be in work tomorrow. I told her that was ok but that she’d have to get me some cover which she said she would. This is my last week before school starts so I plan on making the most of it.
Its been a sorta quiet day. Well this morning I was busy but the afternoon was pretty quiet. The weather here is crap so I cant even go outside. there are so many wasps around its not even funny. I hate them. And I’m so scared of them. My PA came this morning like she always does on Saturdays. I usually get up at 7 or there abouts but today I stayed in bed till 8 30. It was nice and I was tired as didnt go to bed till after 1 AM last night so it was good to get a little extra time in bed. When my PA came we sat and chatted for a while. We always do that. Usually I eat breakfast while we’re chatting. Today I had some toast and a yogurt. Then my PA cleaned for me. She vacumed and washed dishes, took out my laundry and cleaned the work surfaces. While she did that I got dressed as I was still in my pjamas when she arrived. Then we went to do my grocery shopping. I decided to day to go to aldi’s, which is a store here that is really cheap. I got tons of stuff and I only spent 35 euro on everything. I was so pleased. If I went to the regular store I usually go to I’d have payed twice the price. After grocery shopping we came home and I ate lunch. I’m still on my diet and being good and healthy. After lunch she dropped me to moms house. I didnt do much this afternoon. I walked to the local store with mom and that was about it. Its been 7 weeks now since I’ve had chocolate or coke, cake or cookies. I’m extra proud of myself. My aunts coming over later this evening to have drinks with my mom. I wont be drinking though. But it will be nice to catch up and sit chatting. Hope everyones having a nice saturday.
