Heres a bit of an update

Yesterday I stayed home all day. I didnt get up to very much. I kinda just had a lazy day. My home help came and helped me cook. Other than that I didnt see anyone but I did facetime with my friend Sarah. Twice. That was fun. I read some of my book the girl in the mirror by Cathy Glass. I’m on chapter 9 now. I like it but I prefer her foster care memoirs to her novels. They’re more gripping and they are page turners, where as her novels arent. But I will read it anyway, still though cant wait for her new book girl alone to come out in september. Mom came over this morning to help me sort out all of my clothes. We recycled some stuff that I dont use or ware and we sorted the rest of them so that I know whats what for school and what clothes I have that fit me. I found two brand new pairs of jeans that I bought months ago but never wore because they were too tight. Now they fit me perfectly. Am so happy about that. It saves me some money because I was gonna buy some new jeans on Friday. Mom also cut my grass in the back yard and front of the house. She also made me breakfast which was nice since usually I make my own. I got my water bill and I had to speak to someone about it and was trying to get through to their customer services department for ages but couldnt. Eventually I realised there was a problem with my phone and I thought I’d been cut off. But I wasnt cut off, the problem was with the phone company. Its all fixed again now and I finally did get through and speak to someone and the problem with my bill is sorted. I had my dr Barry apt this afternoon. That went really well. I told her about my weight loss and she was delighted for me. We talked about starting school, and before I left she wished me luck for starting on Monday. We talked about a couple other things too. Mostly about the plan Mark and I made, therapy, system stuff etc. It was a great apt and I left feeling great. Came home then, ate my dinner, fed Nitro, and am now chilling out playing on facebook, doing email, watching tv, etc. Its really been a good couple of days. My mood is good. I feel fantastic. I’m happy and positive. I like this feeling.

Love me challenge day 9

Day 9: Share something beautiful.
These pictures are of Nitro, my guide dog. These were taken on his first free run 3 years ago. A free run is when the dog is off harness, playing, enjoying his freedom and just being a dog and not a working dog. Arent they adorable?

Our vacation in Killarney day two

We had a great day yesterday.  We went to kenedys pet farm. OH MY GOD it was cool. So many animals. I got to pet goats, sheep pigs, puppies, kittens, and deer.  The kids had a ball too.  The animals kept trying to steal our foo which was really funny.  We took lots of pics and I even got a video of the pig snoring her head off.  The pigs names were babe and beauty.  Babe was only 9 weeks old.  Theree were also puppies which were only six weeks old.  they were gorgeous.  I had fun snuggling one of them.  I also got to hold a kitty.  Can you believe I’ve never held a kitten?  Or felt a pig?  We spent the entire day at the pet farm.  Then we came home and my sister took the kids swimming.  Me and mom went to the bar and sat chatting and mom had a drink but I didnt.  Then when my sister came back we ordered dinner.  I was good and got mostly healthy food but I did get potato skins loaded with bacon and cheese.  I must say they were delicious.  My sister got buffalo wings which were very hot.  After dinner I was tired so decided to go back to my room for the rest of the evening.  My sister took the kids to play crazy golf and then they went to watch a movie in the kids play area.  It was a great day.  Today we’re meant to be going to a wildlife sanctuary but its raining so I am not sure we’ll get there.  If the rain holds off we will but if it doesnt our plans will have to change.  We’re about to go eat breakfast now.  We have to be out of the hotel rooms by midday.
