One year ago today,I wrote my first blog post here on the Roof. After talking with my friend Chupa and telling her about the decision to apply for a guide dog, I had jokingly said I should start a doggy diary. She told me I should start a blog on Blogger, so I did, and the Doggy Diaries were begun.
I read through all the September 2009 posts after finding the first one, and it was really fun to look back at that month and see how far I’ve come. I had a good laugh when I read about my first mile on the treadmill. I was all freaked out that I set a baseline at 3.1 mph. Haha!! I now walk 4.2 mph and do two miles in thirty minutes. That first mile was twenty minutes lol! And I was freaked out that that was my baseline haha!!
It was also fun to read about how it all started with an iPod. In that post I explain how I came to buy my Apple and start my life with Alex.
I also had a laugh about calling my future dog “she” in the Juno walk post. “She”. Haha! It’s so fun to look back on the things you thought my happen, and see what really happened.
I think one of my favorite posts from September 2009 is the why I have a story to tell post. Sometimes I can’t believe the stuff that comes out of my brain, and it’s good to see that I still feel that positive, even more so, about my life today.
There are a lot more posts from that month, but I just wanted to mention some of my favorites. I’m so grateful for this blog and all of you. The friendships I have because of this little spot on the net are irreplaceable, and the storage of memories are invaluable to me. I’m so glad I’ll always have this to look back on. This whole blog, on it’s one year birthday, is all because of Jayden. My guide dog, my companion, my best friend. I am the luckiest girl in the world!
