The situation right now

I haven't been able to update for a while now, because my home broadband connection has been cut off due to the unpaid bills; I had taken them to the social worker who is responsible for paying my bills, but something went wrong. Ever since the beginning of this year, there had been some changes in the social office and social security institution system and now everything is a bit muddled.
Of course, I can update on my mother's laptop, or the library computer, or at one of the computers at Pearl House and Late Winds, or on my smartphone.


Not enough spoons

I slept on the sofa- bed again, because I didn't have enough spoons to hoover the mattress and dress my bed in clean sheets.

I stayed awake all the way to midnight, watching the movie Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I will go see the new POTA movie next week.

I had a dream about the movie. I woke up pretty early, got up about at eleven o'clock in the morning, took my morning medicine and dressed up.
I actually had enough spoons to do all the morning routines, but I wanted to go visit my parents as soon as possible.
I had visited them for almost every day this week.

I called my mother and asked her if I can come over, she said she's going grocery shopping and told me to come in half an hour.

After puttering around for exactly half an hour, I took a bus to my parents' home because I didn't have enough spoons for walking.

It was warm and sunny outside, a bit cloudy at times.

Once at my parents' home, both mom and dad were there. I drank coffee and orange juice, ate cashew nuts, a cinnamon roll, and a bowl of fish and veggie soup.

Mom gave me 29 euros because she will be away next Tuesday.

I had enough spoons for walking back home a long way.
I went to the shopping mall and visited a coffee shop; I bought two ice creams, one bubblegum- flavoured and one marshmallow- flavoured, and a glass of cold cocoa with marshmallow- flavoured syrup.

After the refreshment, it was time to do some severe shopping. I bought a "Congratulations for the newlyweds!" card for a friend from the stationery shop, and groceries from the supermarket; a big jug of milk, three package ls of rye bread, a box of coffee grounds, and two boxes of apricots.

I was thinking of buying some jewellery, but decided not to waste my money.

I went back home, put everything to their rightful places, made coffee, and decided to go visit Helsinki.

Once at the city center, I visited my favorite thrift store, then an art museum, then I travelled back home and went to the gym.
I was exhausted and in a sour mood, but still managed to work out.

Once back home, I took a shower, washed laundry, took my evening medicine and brushed my teeth.
