Today I just feel like talking.
I so often feel that I have to have a concrete topic for my posts, and then I just end up not writing anything. I do want to have some sort of focus, but this blog is also for me and today I just want to talk/write and just go with it.
First topic is about my just one thing a day thing. Yesterday I felt so overwhelmed, but today I am actually getting things done on my to-do list. I feel calmer today for some reason, so I am able to do those things, so that feels nice. But I am still just going with the one thing a day role (which is actually several things a day… I just make the short list and don’t think beyond that). So that’s going well.
What have I gotten done? Quite a few doctor things (made a primary care appointment, started figuring out how to transfer my records before I got cut off, and changed Ralph’s vet appointment for this Thursday); talked to the lady at the nursing school about how to start the disability accommodation process; and put in the load of laundry I needed to do.
Still need to: order my test scores to the nursing school, finished that records thing, make dinner, and perhaps make one more appointment.
I started the book “The Help” yesterday and I finished it today. A really good read; I plan on doing a review of it tomorrow.
I am right now watching one of my shows: “Real Housewives of New Jersey”. I LOVE DVR! So often to be able to record stuff.
It was encouraging to talk to the nursing school disability services office today. I am still kind of nervous about getting a doctor to tell them what accommodations I need, when the doctor is a completely new one, but I feel pretty supported her by the school. I can believe I could be starting at the end of August. It really hasn’t sunk in yet. It doesn’t feel real yet. But I am taking the steps to get there.
I have been having a flare-up with my neuritis symptoms in the last few days. It’s frustrating, but I’m trying to be patient with it. I can only swim for 15 min. today, but it still felt good.
We are going down to Mission Beach, San Diego again this weekend, this time with some friends. I have never taken friends down there before. But I got my dad’s approval. 😉 I’m excited to go down to the beach, and we are going to my favorite racetrack in the world: Del Mar, where the surf meets the turf!
Geez, it feels good to blog today.
Do you like going to horse races/racing track? I love going, one of my favorite things!
