We’re in the final week! This week will be about fine tuning and really focusing on the stuff we need for our home area. We have a night route tonight in San Rafael, a bus to lounge. It’ll be the same one I did before when I had the meltdown. So I think it’ll be better tonight now that I know what to expect.
This morning’s route was to Union Square in San Fransisco. I told the instructor I’m a little worried about my energy levels lasting for the night route, and he told me to pick a route. I decided the night route was more important. I just don’t live in an area like San Fran, and frankly I don’t like San Fran. It’s too busy. Sensory overload. I just kinda freeze. We’ve only been there once, and as soon as I stepped off the bus I freaked out. And that was in a less busy area. Apparently Union Square is crazy. No thank you. Nope. Uh uh. I can’t effectively handle my dog if I’m overloaded. So I’m taking it easy this morning. I made some coffee and then chatted with the housekeeper while she cleaned my room. Jay and I played some tug and now he’s passed out on the fleece.
I don’t have the mental energy to upload the videos, so it’ll just have to wait. In fact might not even tackle that until I’m home. We have the meeting with the instructor this afternoon to go over transitioning. So I have my questions written out on the laptop. Then we can visit the gift shop. Then dinner is an hour early and we’ll go to San Rafael. It’s chilly today with a chance of rain tonight.
I haven’t heard from the puppy raiser yet. I hope I hear from her soon.
Natalie sent me a graduation present! It’s a necklace with a braille letter R on it. She got it back when I was just R and decided she’d send it when I got to school. Isn’t she sweet!! So I called her yesterday and spoke with her and Darrell. Sorry no linkage. They are such cool people!
Bullocks. I went back to get more coffee and they had cleaned the post and dumped the fresh pot I made. Oh well.
Anyway, guess that’s it for me for now. 6 days till home!
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that one of the dogs has been pretty sick. She’s feeling better today after the vet gave her fluids last night. They’re not sure what caused it. Then another dog vomited before eating this morning, so we’re all a little jumpy. The instructor said sometimes dogs will vomit when they get really hungry, so we’re hoping that’s all it was. They are monitoring her, and the rest of us are watching our dogs like hawks. No more sick dogs, please, thanks.
