I think I’m going to try gardening

I'm not much of a flowery girl and no flower we ever had in my house could ever survive more than a week, so I never even tried to plant anything or try to keep it alive. Now that we have a backyard, my stepdad took care of the gardening in the planter we have … Continue reading I think I’m going to try gardening

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe New Years Eve. I started the new year on the right foot doing small things like updating my calendar from December to January and changing my sheets. It's the little things that we do that make it all better. I haven't made any resolutions this year … Continue reading Happy 2019!

I almost drowned my phone

Since yesterday, every time I try to make a phone call or I receive a call, I can't hear anything. I don't hear the phone ringing as I call and I can't hear the person when they answer or when I answer, even though I see on the screen that the other person had answered … Continue reading I almost drowned my phone

My to-do lists

I've been told many times to write things down so I will remember them like for example making a list of what I need from the pharmacy or what I need to tell my doctor. I don't need help with motivation to do things, I need to remember to do them. Sometimes I can't even … Continue reading My to-do lists

Our first Thanksgiving

Happy belated Thanksgiving everybody! I hope you all had a nice day with your family, friends and/or loved ones. As I had mentioned in a previous post, my parents were hosting Thanksgiving, which meant I would have to host too and officially welcome people into my new apartment. I did everything I could to keep … Continue reading Our first Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving week

Thanksgiving is only a week away, and that makes me nervous this year. My parents are hosting Thanksgiving this year, that means I will also welcome the family in my new apartment and that is just a little nerve-racking. I have only had a few visitors here and three of them were impressed because they … Continue reading Thanksgiving week

We’re still decorating

A few weeks ago, during a trip to Home Depot, we bought the kitchen cabinet handles for my kitchen. Between our busy life during the week and one thing or another during weekends, we really didn't have time to put them on the doors. I did have time to unscrew a door and screw it … Continue reading We’re still decorating

Live, laugh and forget you’re tired

After a very long day yesterday, I have been tired all day, since this morning when I took my medicine at 8 am and went right back to sleep for 2 hours and a half. I was tired last night when I came home and I've been tired all day. Because of this I was … Continue reading Live, laugh and forget you’re tired

My dining room table!

Since I last told you about my apartment, I had just painted my bathroom door. I'm not sure but I think that was the last big thing I had done, besides cleaning. It was the last thing until yesterday when I finally got a dining room table! It's not that big, which is perfect because … Continue reading My dining room table!

Painting and cooking

Having an apartment all to myself is a lot of work, more work than I thought. I knew that after all the work we did this summer it wouldn't be over yet, I still needed to do somethings to finish, like painting my bathroom door. I had been avoiding that for days because something always … Continue reading Painting and cooking

Survived week one

It doesn't end! I moved in exactly one week ago, last Friday and I just unpacked the last of my stuff; I think. One week to unpack everything! That's too much. But, unpacking doesn't mean everything is in their right place, it just means I don't have anymore boxes, but it's still a little messy. … Continue reading Survived week one

I’m home!!!

I'm happy to say that right now I'm writing from the comfort of the living room in my new apartment! I moved in yesterday and as much as I wanted to tell everyone about it, I was too tired by the time I stopped trying to organize. The movers first went to our old apartment … Continue reading I’m home!!!

Working on my patience

After all our hard work this past four months, moving day is just days away. After months of preparing you'd think I'd have everything packed and ready to go, instead of waiting to the last minute to finish and running out of boxes and tape. I knew when we were moving, I was just more … Continue reading Working on my patience

I have a kitchen and half a bathroom

Between today and yesterday I've scraped to much paint off the floors in my apartment, I think the paint spills just keep multiplying and every time I get one out, two moths just appear. Yesterday, it took me forever because it was just me and a very small saw, which was difficult to hold and … Continue reading I have a kitchen and half a bathroom

Cooking in MY kitchen

Now that my new kitchen is almost ready, I have to start getting used to cooking again. As I’ve mentioned before, using the stove or oven was prohibited for me after the accident because of the epilepsy. Also, I don't want to think about what would have happened if I ever left the stove or … Continue reading Cooking in MY kitchen
