Now that that is over, and my choir is over, my body knows it’s relax time so I am absolutely exhausted. I’m so lazy in fact, I will copy and paste the email I wrote to my list so I don’t have to re-type it lol.
Well, I saw Don today. He came a little early after calling to see if
that was ok. Luckily I’m always ready early and was just finsishing up
my oatmeal. It was raining lightly when he got here, so he suggested
we do the walk first before it really started coming down. So I
directed him to the intersection I crossed with Dave a souple weeks
back. The van smelled like dogs, so I sked him if it was from GDB,
which it was.
So he watched me walk with my cane for a bit on the sidewalk, and then
we did Juno at the intersection. He told me to say Juno forward, when
I thought it was safe to cross, so I did when I heard the surge. He
showed me how to make a right turn and then a left turn and we walked
quite a ways. He didn’t have a harness so he used an umbrella. I bet
that looked silly.
We came back and sat and talked while he did his checklist thing. He
had the same feelings about when it might be good to go to class, IE
not in summer.
He is recommending me for acceptence! He said I would be hugely
benefited by having a dog! So he’s going to call in his
recommendation, and then I wait for the phone call. He said he doesn’t
know if there are any classes available between January and March, so
if not, I’d go in September or later.
I was so relaxed and silly, saying good boy Juno and putting on the
talking to a dog voice lol!!
I kinda knew he’d say yes, so I wasn’t overly surprised. Dave is so
familiar with the program, having gone through it as training for O &
M instructors, and he’s said all along that I’d be great, so I was
kind of expecting a yes.
So, now I wait for the phone call!
That was the email I sent, and I just want to add that he didn’t have a harness because the van had gotten cleaned out and the harness wasn’t returned. I got to thinking, there we were, walking in the rain, with a folded up umbrella between us hahaha!
I feel like I can finally relax. I’ve done the work, now it’s just wait and see time. Off to my couch I go with my blanket, coffee and Harry Potter 🙂
