Time spent with staff at respite

so one of the staff, elaine, came in and asked me if i wanted her to take nitro out. at first i said yes i did, but then i asked her if i can go down to the kitchen and have some tea and some fruit.

she said of course i could and so we both went down together and i actually let nitro out myself. i stayed outside with him for a couple minutes. the weather isnt too bad here this morning, its dry, there is no rain.

when i came in i sat at the table and ate a banana, and drank two cups of tea. it was nice, and so peaceful. i love early mornings. everything seems so peaceful then. you are able to think clearly, well at least thats how it is for me.

the nurse mary was there with elaine, and they both started talking to me. we talked about guide dogs, and then we talked about respite and i asked them if my being on the phone late last night had disturbed anyone. they told me no, that i am far away from the next bedroom and the sound doesnt really carry. that is good as i dont want to disturb anyones sleep.

i just came back to the room and fed nitro. its 7:40 now. I’ll go down for breakfast at 8:15. After breakfast I need to pack the rest of my stuff. I havent booked a taxi yet to take me home. I’m debating whether I should prebook it or just wait and book it when I am ready. I think I’ll wait.
