Yay! Slept a little!

So me working out was a good thing!
I managed to sleep for a couple hours afterwords! So yay thats fab!
I am so grateful that I got a few hours. It was so needed!
I feel all the better for it now!
I got up at 4 AM! I’m enjoying my first cup of coffee now!
Nitro was snuggled up with me in the bed! He’s so big that he took up all of the room! But I love him! I wouldnt have it any other way! I just hugged him and turned over and fell asleep!
And my anxiety is less now! So exercise, and my dog helped!
Yay! Now to have a great therapy session today! I hope we will!

Feeling better, have calmed down now!

So I’m calmer now. The rage from earlier that I felt has subsided.

I face timed sarah, in colorado, and that helped. We talked for over 2 hours!

It was nice. We commiserated with each other, so I vented all of my anger and got it all out of my system, lol.

Plus I had 2 cups of strong coffee also! I needed the caffeine! I was so annoyed it was not good!

Now my plan is to go watch some tv, I want to watch operation transformation, that I missed last Wednesday because I fell asleep while it was on. Thats on for an hour. I’m a little anxious but am hoping if I sit down in front of the TV and try to wind down that the anxiety and anxious feelings will pass.

I guess we’ll see what happens. I can hope, right?

I’m raging

I am so mad right now! I’m absolutely fuming.

I was going home from my parents to my own house. My mom and aunt were both coming with me. So I rang my usual taxi base, and I asked them to send me out a minivan, since I had the dog, a load of bags, and there was the 3 of us as well.

First off, I had a 20 minute wait, which I wasn’t too fussed about, since we were getting a minivan, and I know there aren’t too many of those on the road on a sunday.

Eventually the minivan came. The driver was so rude. He wanted me to put Nitro in the boot of the van, on his own. I told him I didn’t think that was appropriate, that guide dogs aren’t meant to go in the boot, they are meant to either sit in the front with their owner, or else sit in the back on the back seat.

He was like, well, there is no room, I suppose he can sit in the back. But by then Nitro was very nerous and frightened, since he’d been trying to get him into the boot and Nitro was refusing to do what he said.

So I said fuck it, and I told him I’d leave it, that I wouldn’t be taking the taxi after all. By this time, I was close to tears. So then, I went back indoors to moms house and I rang the base, and I complained. The girl was not impressed with the way the driver treated us. She offered to get me another taxi, but I said it was fine, as I’d already called a different company.

So I did eventually get home, and I’m not the better of it. Taxi’s have gone so bad lately, all moaning and complaining about having to take the dog, they either complain about his size, or the hair, or something else. Its actually against the law for them not to take him, so they don’t actually ever refuse directly, but they do make it known that they aren’t happy about him being in their cars.

It really gets to me. I am really upset now because of what happened.

My dog is now a senior

Nitro is 9 years old now. Oh my god! 9! How did he get here?

I rang his vet this morning. I wanted to check when his next check up is due.

She told me to bring him in in april. He gets a check up every six months. She said if I am worried about him to bring him in sooner.

She asked me if he’s losing weight, I said, no, quite the opposite. I think he’s gained some weight.

I’m not actually worried about him at all. He does have a little lump on his ear, its like a wart, but the last time he was at the vets I got her to check it. She said it was nothing and if he was ever under anastetic she’d remove it then.

He’s in good health. I think he’s getting a touch of artheritis though poor guy. He can still run around though, and he can still jump on the bed, so I don’t think its that bad.

I hope he is going to live for at least another 5 years. All going well, he should. I just cannot imagine my life without him in it and I hope I don’t have too for a very long time.

The Monday peeve

Hi! Well Paula from light motifs is the host of the Monday peeve! Its where you get to vent about something on a Monday. So here I go with my vent for this Monday, but its actually Tuesday here now.

My vent is about workmen! I am so peeved at the ones who came into my house today!

Why do they think its ok to mess up the whole place and not bother to clean it after themselves? It irks me!

Today, 2 workmen came into my home to install a carbon monoxide alarm. They messed up my kitchen, moved everything, and then didn bother to tell me. So I was looking for coffee, my sweeteners, and I couldn’t find them because they’d been moved. Ug!

Then one guy was fiddling with my heating system, and he turned off the gas at the wall, so my heating wouldn’t work. I mean WTF? Don’t touch it dude! Why do you even need to be going near it?

All he was doing was installing an alarm, which uses the electric system, not the damn heat! To say I was peeved is an understatement! I was so annoyed!

I did put everything right, but at first I didn’t even know things were so messy! I though then that they’d left my curtains open, but thank god they didn’t. They did however leave on my lights. Thank god they were only in my house for an hour tops! That is all I can deal with.

Well that’s me done with my vent!
Oh one more thing? They were going in and out of my fron door, and I was full sure they’d let Nitro out. Thank god though he stayed by my side, he didn’t follow them at all. Good boy, Nitro!

Dogs are so amazing! I love mine!
He was snuggled up in bed with me all night last night. His warm body next to mine, me listening to his breathing, he really makes me feel safe. I love when he gets on my bed with me.
I gave him his breakfast this morning, and he wolfed it down. He loves his food.

Snuggling with the pup!

Nestled beside him
His soft nose against my face
His beautiful soft fur
Making me feel safe
I hug him tightly
Bury my face in his fur
Breathe in his scent
Oh how I love him
He makes me complete
His waggling tail
Soft doggy kisses
Fluffy coat
He’s my hero
In every sense of the word
