I’m leaving for Madison for my brother’s wedding tomorrow and I feel like I have a million things to do including relax and get some me time in because I’m not going to have control over my schedule for the next four days and loss of control has historically been a trigger for depressive episodes for me.
But fortunately Whitney is super organized and sent us all an hour by hour schedule of the next few days so at least I know what’s happening next I don’t have to put myself into “go with the flow” mode as much as I do on other trips.
I’m ready for it to be over, but I’m also excited. I contacted all of my relatives and made them a family recipe book as a wedding gift (Tommy loves to cook). I’m almost done with and it looks really nice, so I think they’ll like it. I’m also excited at the prospect of Daisy and Teddy’s excitement at spending five nights at the DOG BARN which Daisy LOVES and Teddy’s never been to before! This place have 60 acres for the dogs to play in and are put with other dogs of the same temperament. Daisy is 8 but she always ends up with the puppies because she loves playing so much. And Teddy’s going to have so much fun! He loves new places, he loves other dogs, and he LOVES his big sister Daisy and he’s going to get to stay in the same pen as her!
In other dog news, Daisy ate a third of a bar of soap yesterday, which she hasn’t done in years. She threw up 5 times, but it was really easy to clean up.
