Weigh in time

Well it’s that time of the week again, time to be weighed. I hope I’m down tonight. Even a pound would do. I know you can’t be down a lot every week but I’d love to be down something at least. Hoping for the best, wish me luck guys, I need it I think although I have a good feeling about tonight, so I’m hoping for the best.

Woop Woop here I go

Aftercare visit with Nitro!

I just got a phone call from the guide dogs school, someone is coming out next Tuesday morning, to do an aftercare visit with me and Nitro!
It is time for Nitro to retire! I’m not exactly sure if it will happen next week, but it will definitely be happening soon!
He’s 9 this coming Friday!
He’s at that age where they retire!
The trainer whose coming out, I dont know him. I sorta wish it was Nitros trainer Nathalie who was coming out to visit me, but you dont get a choice in who does the aftercare with you.
I am really nervous about this visit! I just hope things go well.
Please keep us in your thoughts, its happening next Tuesday at 11 AM!

A busy day ahead

I woke up super early this morning. Despite going to bed at a relatively decent hour, 11:30, I woke up at 5:45 AM.

I decided to get up. No point in trying to go back to sleep, it just wasn’t happening.

I heard mom also getting up. I went to the kitchen and had a cuppa with her. It was nice. We chatted for a bit also.

My nephew is having 8 of his teeth out today. His baby teeth. He’s only six, poor little guy. My mom is going to the dental hospital with my sister, I hope he’ll be ok and everything will be ok for him.

I’ll have a quiet enough morning, but I work this afternoon. I was meant to go have my nails done today, and my lip and eyebrows waxed. But because my nephew is having his teeth out, my mom couldn’t take me, so I changed the appointment to Thursday morning instead.

I’m staying at my parents house this week. My PA Frances would normally come on Tuesdays, but she had to take holidays this week. I’m going to Killarney this coming Friday, so I just decided to stay with mom and dad for the entire week.

I have my weekly weigh in this evening also. I’m excited to see how I did. I have a pretty good feeling. I hope I’m right to have a good feeling. I hope the results of my weigh in are good tonight.

My mood today is great. It feels so good to be able to say that. It feels nice to be able to say I woke up feeling good. And mean it.

Damn computers

I’ve had to deal with my computer not working properly all day today.
I had work, and when I got there, my email programme wouldnt open up.
I reinstalled it, but it still wouldnt open for me.
Eventually, I had to use a different email programme.
I came home, and went on the computer, and eventually I fixed it.
I’ve been using outlook express, which is a very old email programme, but there is a version for windows and thats what I am using.
Anyway, its fixed now, and everything looks ok again.
Thank goodness I was able to still work today, as I had windows livemail on my machine, and so I was able to use that, and get my call list that my supervisor emailed on to me.

dark kids: Creating a room with Eileen in it

hihi
its ebony and kia. we are 7 and 11. we had some time witheileen today in therapy.
we was real scared. we been having lots of icky memories coming up.
Eileen was so kind ta us. we was waiting to see her all weekend. it was a long weekend of waiting.
she sat by us today. and she said she can support us. she put her hand on our shoulder, cuz we wasn’t ready for a hug yet.
That felt nice. safe. felt good. we like that she sat by us.
we decide to create a room for the dark kids. a room like eileens office.
so that’s what we did. we made it esactly like her office is.
she said she can go in there with us. and we can sit with her in there when we’re sad or scared.
I like that idea. it fils safer ta us that shes in there with us.
we also took all of the bad memories, and we are going to leave them in her office. well not in there, but outside of it, in a big container, a huge one.
and we’ll look at them when we feel more ready and lesser scared ta do that.
but until then eileens mindin them for us!
so yeah that’s good, right? feels good we aren’t alone with them!
we only had about 15 minutes today but we’ll have more time next week!
and im glad we gots Eileen ta help us! shes kind and she care bout us!
frum ebony and kia, ages 7 and 11
