Today, my brother and father went to work and my Mom went to her friend's house. I was left alone at home. Normally, I can fill the hours with stuff I like to do like surf the net, read, watch TV and sew. But today, I just felt so bleh. I felt like a dark cloud is looming over me, making me yearn for company.
I considered calling a friend but most of my friends are too busy with work to go out to the mall with me (for instance). And after I hang up, I will still feel lonely and bleh!
Well, I decided today, bleh or not, I will finish reading my new book, Inheritance. I didn't really like the ending but I enjoyed reading it all the same. But I still feel bleh!

I can't wait for the 15th of December! Because that is when I have an appointment at noon with a professional hairdresser to tame my wild mane. Why not tomorrow, you think? Well, my hair grows super slow and a professional haircut is not exactly cheap, so I'm planning to get a good cut on the Thursday (the 15th) before the Christmas party on the 17th.
Then after dialysis on next day (the 16th of December), I'm planning on colouring my hair myself with some foam colour! After that, I don't have to do a thing to my hair for Chinese New Year (end ofJanuary (hopefully)!

I've just finished dialysis but it's only Monday, the first treatment of the week! I don't feel like racking up sparkpoints anymore! I feel like taking a hot bath and settling down to read till I feel sleepy, then I'm going to bed............
Yeah, sounds like a plan! Bye sparkers!

Well, I was planning to exercise this weekend, but I ended up doing cross-stitch most of the time. I guess I am listening to my body because I'm still sneezing and sniffling because of the rainy weather and air-conditioning (at the dialysis centre since Friday afternoon, I just can't stop sneezing!).
I got bored this afternoon, and took a short walk to my hairdresser's around 4pm. I asked him what I should do to my hair and he recommended an overall trim at the end of December or January (for Chinese New Year). Since I want to look fab during Christmas, I ended up making an appointment with him for the 15th of December. I may have a Christmas do on the 17th. To my amazement, someone already has an appointment with him at 2pm! I'm scheduled at noon. I guess I'm not the only forward thinking one!
I can't wait for my haircut, my hair is driving me crazy! I keep it off my face with a hairclip and a pony tail. Hopefully, I'll be looking fab this Christmas! And I hope my good haircut lasts till the end of January too for Chinese New Year!

and I'm not talking about watching portions or getting healthy in general either! You see, I'm on dialysis, which means I have to watch my fluid intake like a hawk, among other things.
While the people around me get to feast on that juicy burger and drink as much water as they want to quench their thirst, I can't. I have to watch my protein/phosphate intake, which means I can have a big juicy burger like only once a month. And when I drink, I can only drink the bare minimum.
And don't even get me started on not being able to go on a holiday! You see, I can't miss my treatments, not even once, it's unadvisable. Which means I can only go on weekend trips, only to be on time for my first treatment on Monday! It sucks! You see, if I make arrangements to have my treatments overseas, it'll be prohibitively expensive! So, I'm stuck here for the rest of my life. As I can only take weekend trips, which means they have to be local.
Sometimes, I feel like there's no point to carry on............
