As usual, I woke up early because the nervous pain in my head became too strong to tolerate.
I took my morning medicine, put salve into my eye, had a wash and dressed into one of my most prettiest outfit; I had a therapist’s appointment today and I wanted to make an impression.
I checked the balance of my bank account on the online bank service, I had received a sufficient amount of money. I paid a bill and ordered two cruise tickets to Tallinn and then went grocery shopping.
It was about half past eight o’clock in the morning, so the bank wasn’t opened yet. I withdrew money at the ATM machine and went to Citymarket to buy groceries; milk, orange juice, sugar, carrots and a cucumber. I already have enough food so I didn’t need to buy much.
After hauling the carrier bag home, I put the groceries into the fridge and ate some Shrovetide buns I had bought.
I heard a thunk when the mail arrived through the mail slot in my door. I went to see, and what do you know, I had received a package from Carol Anne! I immediately opened it and almost yelped with delight!
There was a mermaid diary, two chocolate hearts, two badges and a pendant and an adorable card! I almost cried tears of joy!
I took the lock out of the diary and put it into my bookshelf, ate the chocolates and put the pendants and badges into my jewelry box.
I washed a load of laundry, before the laundry basket became too full. I also hoovered the floor of my apartment and soon I had to hoover it again, mainly because I had spilled sugar on the floor. I re- arranged my CDs, DVDs, books, artifacts and diaries, and opened the kitchen window to let some fresh air in.
Later the day I went out for errands; I mailed the Valentine’s day cards, returned a DVD to the library, took my broadband bill to the social office and took a tube of Sibicort lotion to the pharmacy for recycling. It’s gone past its best before- date.
I took the bus 39 to Kamppi, and made it to the therapy session in time.
I talked about whatever subjects came into my mind, now that nothing too bad has happened I don’t have much to talk about.
We made a new appointment for next week on Tuesday, February 17th at midday.
After the appointment, I went to a stationery shop in Kamppi shopping center and bought seven Valentine’s day cards.
I went to see my parents because I needed to use their printer to print the cruise tickets. I took the bus 452 to Louhela and then the bus 516 to Raappavuori.
Only my brother was home. I printed the tickets, made coffee and ate whatever I could find from the fridge.
I took the bus 35 to Myyrmäki and went home. My apartment smelled ever so fresh and clean, mainly because I had forgotten to close the kitchen window when I left. I didn't mind at all.
I dealt my medicine into my Dosett and noticed that I was running out of Solian, so I called the pharmacy and asked them if all of the papers and forms are in order; I was told that I can visit the pharmacy tomorrow and fetch all the papers I need to receive co- payment from the social office. I wish I will be able to receive the batch this week, because I will go visit my grandmother next Wednesday and I will be away until Saturday.
☮ I have an unholy love for pajama pants, I like to wear them as everyday trousers. I have only one pair of pajama pants I wear when I sleep, and I need to buy more of them so I can wear one pair while the other is in the laundry basket. Tarjoustalo and the UFF thrift shops in Freda and Iso- Roba sell some cute ones.
☮ Which reminds me, I only have three or four brassieres right now; I have such humongous boobs that it's hard to find a proper brassiere for them, something that is affordable, proper size and not one of those granny ones, I prefer cute and sweet ones with lots of lace and bows.
☮ I bought the rest of the Valentine's cards today, I wrote the sender's & receiver's addresses and my signature (smiley face, peace sign and a heart, and "Miia" in cursive), and I ran out of stamps after five of them. Well, two first class stamps are not going to break my bank.
☮ On Friday I will receive money again, my mom will give me 100 euros. As I have said before, zie gives me 80 euros every payday zie has but I asked her to give me a bit more since I am going to Tallinn the next day, so I can buy souvenirs and stuff like that.
☮ I also have to buy birthday cards for each and every single one of my friends who has their birthday this month; Kaarle, Sarah, Carlo, Emilia and Heidi.
☮ I have decided to order new vegan biker bitch boots on February 20th; my old boots have holes at the soles, I can't put it off anymore. I will be at my grandmother's by then, that's also when I receive my monthly welfare. I have drawn out a plan, I will use Wednesday's money only to purchase a Greyhound ticket to Kangasala, and save the rest of the money until Friday when I receive more money, and then I will order the boots.
I won't buy food since I will eat well at my grandmother's, and my mother will probably give me a little spending money if we visit Tampere to go to cafes and museums.
☮ My head hurts really bad, even if my blood sugar is balanced and I have gotten plenty of fresh air today. I guess it's the nervous pain due to the herpes zortex. I wish I could get better soon, at least the medical treatment is soon over.
