Busy Day

It's been a busy and longish day. What I've done today won't seem like much to most of you, but as a card-carrying agoraphobic it takes me several hours to talk myself into leaving the house, and then after I'm home again it takes a couple of hours to come down from the tension of being away from my nice safe home. A small set of errands, therefore, is a full-day process.

One of my big worries: if it takes this much prep to run a couple of errands, how in hell am I going to manage a two-week overseas vacation in September?

Today was fairly simple - visit my psychiatrist, try yet another grocery store to see if they have lactose-free milk in stock; it's been difficult to find lately. Psychiatrist's appointment went well, lactose-free milk obtained, so win-win.

Have also managed to contact my son (notoriously difficult to get in touch with) and inform him that he needs to reimburse me half of the cost of the ungodly phone bills he's been racking up as we've been sharing a phone plan. To do him credit, he agreed immediately and without hesitation, so I will have money again - not a fortune, but enough to make a difference between watching every penny and spending nothing on myself, and being able to get my hair cut, needed desperately as I'm beginning to look like a shaggy dog. I am also going to take myself to see the Beauty and the Beast film - I've been so disappointed that I couldn't afford to go, and as long as it hasn't left theatres I'm going to go and see it tomorrow night.

And that's me done for the day. I came home and put my nightgown on, and am planning a quiet evening of reading and watching TV. The breeze through the open windows is lovely; I'm so glad it's spring.

Hurray for accomplishing things! Keep it up, and don't be so hard on yourself. :)

I know she checked one of them. I don't know about the others.

Heh. I like your way of thinking!

Agoraphobia must be really hard. My sympathies. Glad your errands went well.
