its me allie. and guess what? im going to tell eileen today about our good news! about our trip to see sarah next year! she doesnt know yet that we’re going!
i bet shell be super excited for us! i know she will!
im so looking forward to telling her the news! i already emailed her and told her i had some exciting news to tell!
i hope we can talk about it a little bit! i like talking about nice things. it dont always have to be sad or scary stuff that we talk about.
so i cant wait to tell her! shes going to probly say how cool it is! she always thinks what we do is cool!
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!
In a few weeks I’m heading away for a weekend break. We’re going to killarney, one of our fave spots. We’ll be going on the 25th, until the 28th of october. I cant wait!
I love weekends away! I’m going with my mom and my two aunts. We’ll probably go to some shows, there is a lot of entertainment in the hotel we’re going to, we’re going to a hotel, but there are apartments there too and we’re actually staying in one of those.
It cant come quick enough! I’m super excited about it!
Plus, its coming at a good time! Halloween is only a few days after that, and halloween is a tough time of year for us. So going away for a few days coming up to it will do us good I think!
Even dr. barry agreed when I told her we were going!
Plus we’ll have no therapy on that monday the 28th, not sure if Eileen is going to do a session that week, she may or may not, it will depend if she is available to do it.
So the fact we’re away on the Monday when we’d usually have therapy will be great! No time to get upset or worry or fret!
So yeah! Come quick October 25th!
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!
I’ve some amazing news to share! I am so excited!
Next May I am going to america! To denver in collorado! I am going to visit my friend Sarah! I’ve known sarah since 2012, we became friends when we both joined a list for blind people with mental illness. Our friendship blossomed and from there we became best friends!
She has did and ptsd, and she is blind like i am!
I’m going to go visit her and celebrate her birthday with her!
I’ll be staying at least 2 weeks, but it could be longer we arent sure yet as we still have to firm up dates.
But later this week I am going in to book my flights!
I am on air! I’ve always wanted to meet her and now, finally its happening!
We’re going to have so so much fun together!
Our insiders will have a blast! I know Liz is looking forward to meeting her good friend Brandy in sarahs system. They will probably go mental and have lots of alcohol!
Also the kids are excited to meet their friends in sarahs system too!
Its going to be an epic trip!
I’d been thinking about it for a while, and last night I finally got to ask Sarah how she felt about me coming, since we face timed last night.
She was all for me coming! And her mom offered to pick me up at the airport and drop me there to go home again! And we’ll even go stay with her mom in the mountains for a few days too!
I told her I’ll go to the mountains as long as bears dont eat me! Lol!
Since I am 40 next year, my birthdays in april, and sarahs is in may, the trip will be in between both of our birthdays, and I thought this would be a nice birthday present to give myself when I turn the big 40!
So whose excited for me?
I think I’m going to burst with excitement!
I am going to a pet farm today. My mom and sister and the two kids are also going. I am the one who wanted to go, I asked my sister if she’d take me. I adore animals, and on this farm you can pet and feed all of the animals. I am so excited to go. I will take lots of photos and videos and I will be posting them on here throughout the day. So stay tuned for some cute photos and videos of the animals.
We’re going to take a picnic lunch. It is going to be an awesome day. I can feel it. I just love things like this, I am so looking forward to it.
I hope there are goats there. goats are one of my favourite animals. I think they’re so cute.
Anyway stay tuned for lots of updates all day ha ha ha!
