Hello from IKEA

Yesterday I slept all day, I only got up to change into a clean nightshirt, and to take my medicine in the morning and in the evening. I had a headache, even my nose was hurting, and I felt a bit sick. I guess it was one of those achy- pukey days.
I logged in to my online bank account just for shits ‘n giggles, and what do you know, I had received nineteen euros and ninety cents (19,90 €). I knew it was the assistance for the monthly gym membership fee paid by the social office, but considering that I was going to pay it on Wednesday, I decided to do whatever I wanted with the money.

This morning my mother called me and asked me if I still wanted to go to IKEA with her. I took this as a sign to get up; I took my morning medicine, dabbed basic lotion on my face, rolled deodorant in my armpits, and dressed into neat clothes that my mom would approve.

Me and mom met in front of the stationery shop in the shopping mall. We went to the supermarket to buy treats, and then we took the bus %&% to IKEA.
Once there, we had lunch; I had French fries, mom chose meatballs with smashed potatoes.

Mom bought me a white Melltorp dining table, and three red Marius chairs. They will be delivered to my home on Thursday, about at noon.

We travelled to my parents’ home on the same bus. I had coffee with mom, and she gave me the weekly allowance, twenty euros (20 €).

When I left, I kissed and hugged my mom goodbye and told her I am coming again on weekend.
I took the bus ¤”! to Hell City, and went to the nearest bank to withdraw the cash.
When I was waiting for my turn, my best friend Suavecita called me and asked if I wanted to hang out today. I said yes, and right after withdrawing the money, I took a train to Mole Hill, where I met Suavecita in Bella’s. I went there along with her, and bought a lovely light purple dress and a very chill turquoise t- shirt with a picture of two realistic dolphins, and a bag of assorted badges.

We went to the supermarket where I bought a pound of coffee grounds, a pound of sugar, and ten Karelian pies.

Once back at my home, Suavecita gave me a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic chocolate Easter surprise egg, and a bar of white chocolate with raspberries.
We had coffee, ate Karelian pies, took friendship selfies, chatted and laughed a lot. I took the laundry off the drying rack, folded them and put them neatly into my cupboard and bureau drawer.

Later the day she went back home, I walked her to her car and watched while she played Pokémon GO. I noticed that they have added the second generation Pokémon.

After Suavecita left, I went to the supermarket and bought two boxes of Kleenexes, a box of six pocket- sized Kleenex packets, two dish- washing brushes, and a roll of biodegradable trash bags.

I went to the gym, but I didn’t bother staying long, because all the working out was making my muscles ache, especially my arms. I still felt like my thighs and calves were getting stronger.
I took a shower and at the exact moment when I raised my hands to wash my hair, I got a crick in my neck. Ouch!

I went back home, and washed a load of laundry.
In the evening at eight o’clock, I took my evening medicine.

Tomorrow I will receive the weekly allowance, it will also be the first of March, the first month of spring.
I will order myself a new change purse from GlobeHope, and purchase myself a ticket to the movie A Cure For Wellness.
I will go to the nearest bank to withdraw the rest of the money, and then I will buy a week’s worth of groceries and stock up on hygiene products.

On Thursday, the aforementioned dining table and chairs from IKEA will be delivered to my home about at noon. After that, I will go to Lapland Spring, and then to the gym.

On Friday, I will start doing the weekly housecleaning. My HoivaOnni worker will visit me in the afternoon.
I will go to Pearl House, there’s a special happening for young adults.

On Saturday, I will go to the gym, and continue doing housecleaning.
By now my dad has gone for a vacation overseas, me and my mom agreed that I can come for a sleepover to my parents’ home, so she won’t feel lonely.

On Sunday I will go back home, and continue the housecleaning.
