I got up late because I stayed up really late the night before. I felt like I was getting going really late in the day because I didn't get up until 10. I had planned on visiting my friend who's husband is still in the ICU and on a ventilator. She wasn't home, but up with her husband visiting, so I asked if they wanted me to visit there, so it was a yes. I ended up visiting them, although being in a hospital, he was tired and slept most of the time I was there. I did get her some lunch and we were able to talk for a few hours. I think it helped both of us.
Although I got up late, I still got breakfast before I went out the door.
On the way there, I stopped to get their daughter a toy, some Duplos, and I ended up grabbing a snack for my lunch. The wraps looked like way too much, so I grabbed a snack pack out of their deli. This was some veggies and pitas to dip in the hummus. I enjoyed it so much I got some more hummus when I stopped back after my visit since I really had to grocery shop for a few things.
I got home in enough time to bring home dinner. Luck seemed to go my way when I left the hospital, the parking meter wasn't working, so I didn't have to pay for it. They missed out on probably $5 from me. I did a quick shopping trip, getting all the rest of the stuff for our Easter baskets, I found the bunnies my kids wanted. Target is carrying more grass fed beef options, and since my cow from the farmer hasn't come in yet, I picked up some beef for the week. Today I had a hot dog for dinner and my husband cut up some cantaloupe that morning, so I added it to my plate. These are the smallest plates I own and it was enough for me.
I did end up having some ice cream. Yes, that's grey, dang pans, I need new ones that won't release and turn rusty. It was banana flavored.
My friend and I had a good talk and we complained about how people just want to look good when "helping" you in a crisis. There are those who truly just want to help, but so many are the "look good" ones that don't help you out normally, but do the I'll visit you because you're in a bad state. She did convince me to find the help I need. It's not a bad thing to have to go see a psychiatrist. She told me stories about people she loves that see one and are able to manage life successfully because of the help. I am usually a very strong person, but this year has just been extra hard on me. If I can't get a haircut for fear of someone ending up in the hospital, then I'm stuck. I have to be able to handle life in a successful way and it's not a horrible thing to get the proper help.
