so eileen will be going on vacation in two weeks time. for two weeks.
we’re trying to prepare ourselves. we had a chat about it in our session today. we talked about how the kids are triggered, not just because she is going away and we wont see her for two weeks, and thats a long time for them, but also because it triggers them back to a time when they felt abandoned and like everyone leaves them.
She got it and understood. She said she’d help us make a calendar again like we did last year. A calendar to count off the days.
She also said we should look at the weeks she’s away and schedule some fun activities in for those weeks. We are going to try to do that.
Dr. barry is also on vacation for one of the weeks so her vacation and eileens overlap for a week. That part is hard as both of our support systems are away. but we’ll manage, we’ll get through. I know we can.
I’m nervous and apprehensive. But I always am when vacation rolls around. I anticipate things being awful for us but maybe they wont be. If we prepare then maybe they’ll be ok. I’m kinda counting on it.
