What did I do?? I had a couple of posts that I wrote about my awesome life, awesome new job, awesome prospect of a service dog for Harry, then it all came crumbling down! Don’t get me wrong, friends, life is good, but I jinxed myself a little and pieces have been falling in December and January. So here we are, February 2016, a new month and I am finally feeling like I won’t jinx things. Just in case, I’ll just keep the celebrating to a minimum – life is cool right now.
My spring semester started and I am back in to the swing of balancing school and family, and now adding in some work. The plus is that work is per diem, so I can choose to work as much or as little as I want. Work is really fun. As a substitute school nurse, I get all the fun and not much of the tedious paperwork. I can come in and meet some awesome kids and teachers and staff, and then go home. I am really enjoying the variety! I even got to teach a health class the other day on the dangers of marijuana. It was quite interesting what these fourth graders had to say.
Harry seems to be over a bit of a tough spell he went through, although we are still struggling with listening to direction and not giving up so easily, but he is a three year old. Right now we are balancing school, outside therapy, piano lessons (which are more like fun music class), and aqua therapy. There’s so much more that I would like him to do, but our schedule is full right now. Maybe when the weather is a bit warmer we can add in some horse time.
We are diligently working on finding a new place to get Harry’s dog from. I met a local trainer who is working with me to find a dog and trainer, and I think we have a couple of good leads. Again, I don’t want to jinx anything! We will see where this goes. For now, we will continue fundraising, staying positive, and looking to the future. Fundraising is going really well and I have a few blog posts in the works about those endeavors, so stay tuned. In the mean time, enjoy some recent pictures!
