Happy thanksgiving! How is your day going? What are your plans for it?
Do you like thanksgiving and all the celebrations? Are you cooking or going to a family get together?
I hope you all enjoy thanksgiving, and that the day is special for everyone!
When I go to colorado next May, Sarah and I are going to do a thanksgiving dinner, so that I can have all the yummy foods associated with it.
I cant wait for that!
I love turkey and stuffing, but I’ve never tasted green bean casserole! So I need to taste that!
Anyway have a super day everyone! Dont eat too much lol!
I just won 60 euro on the lottery!
Yay! I am delighted! I hardly ever win, even though I do it every week!
I am putting another 40 euro to the 60 I won, and buying 100 dollars with it!
Thats spending money for when I go to colorado next may!
I already have 200 dollars saved for my spending money! This is going to make it 300! Yay!
A few more wins like that, and I’ll have tons of spending money!
My plan is to bring about 2000 dollars with me!
I probably wont need that much but its nice to have it!
So I told my work colleagues yesterday that I was off to Colorado next summer!
they were really excited for me! And so jealous too!
My colleague trish was telling everyone about it! She made me laugh because her excitement was palpable, you’d sware it was her who was going!
When I told them I’d be traveling alone, they couldnt believe it!
Another volunteer said I am an inspiration! I told her no, I am not! I just like to be independent and not allow my disability to hold me back!
Trish said I should make a blog about my travels! I didnt tell them I already have a blog! They dont know about my struggles with MH issues.
It was lovely though to go in and be able to share my good news! And the more I shared with them the more excited I got! It was so cool and I just love the feeling of excitement that I get when I think of going next year!
I’m saving up money now for my spending money. I’ll be saving hard for the next few months! I want to have a lot so I can do things, enjoy myself, and not have to worry about how much I have or can spend!
Had a great day. College went well. I am wrecked now though. Going to just relax for the rest of the evening.
Might read, might not. Need to catch up on some blog reading as well.
So happy to have booked my flights to america. I can make plans now. I am super excited. So are the kids. They’ve been jumping around all day, and are full of beans, very very excited.
I am so happy for them. I love seeing their little faces light up because they know we’re going on a trip next summer. Now its whose going to be the one to tell eileen, thats what they are all arguing about right now.
I hope everyone had a good saturday. It rained here for most of the day, the sun is out now but it only came out about an hour ago.
I just got off the phone with the travel agent, I have booked my flights to colorado!
I am going next May! For two weeks!
I leave on May 20th and I come home on June 3rd!
I am flying cork to london heathro, then on to denver, in total its 13 hours of traveling each way!
I have a stop over in London for about 2 and a half hours, before I fly on to denver
I will be getting assistance in all of the airports, the travel agent has already spoken to the airlines for me about that.
I’m flying to London with Aer lingas, and then united airlines for my flight on to denver!
I am super super excited! This is going to be fab!
I cant wait to meet Sarah and I know we’re going to have an amazing time together!
Her mom has already said she’s going to take me to some touristy places in colorado!
So I’ll take lots of pictures and post them!
It is so good to have a trip to look forward to for next summer! And I’m not going too late in summer either, so the weather wont be overly hot but it will just be nice.
This is a great way to start my Saturday!
Happy fourth of July to anyone who lives in the US! I hope you have a lovely day whatever your doing. We dont celebrate the fourth of July in ireland, so I am going to live vocariously through you all today.
I hope you all have a fantastic day! 😀
Do let me know what your plans are!
And enjoy the day!
Today’s sentence: “Can I have a word with you?”
Can I have a word with you, sarah? The teacher said very matter of factly. But sarah knew it was trouble, she was going to be in serious trouble.
She had that feeling, the feeling of dread, as she walked to her teachers desk.
Yes? Miss? She tentatively said?
Sit down, sarah…her teacher said.
Sarah sat down heavily and waited, she waited, and waited some more.
Finally her teacher opened her desk drawer and took out a framed photo.
Here you go sara…this is for you.
I wanted to give you this photo to remember your class. Sarah burst into tears. Tears of relief.
She’d almost forgotten that she was leaving this school and her class behind, to move to america.
Have safe travels Sarah, and remember what I taught you about america! There will be a lot to learn once you move!
I will, miss, sarah beamed! And thank you, thank you for being the best teacher in the world!
