So everyone in the class loads up on the bus and I'll be honest. I'm super nervous and really was becoming uptight about it. I said a small Prayer, We get there and unload, then we all had to harness up our dogs and some want one way and others went the opposite direction. I was super tight, s my arm was loos but my back felt super tight from being tense. I took a deep breath and continued on.
We for the most part had a super smooth walk, where I had a couple of trips from not picking up my feet, but she did awesome bringing me back to the middle of the sidewalk, and completely around things. She continues to amaze me over and over with her eagerness to learn and to get from point A to B. But I was in tears from fear most of the the walk, and then by the time I completed my walk. I think by this point, I'd hit my breaking point of a sleeping schedule gone awry, deeply missing my kids and Mike, the stresses of the traffic checks and bouncing back and forth trying to be in the right place, talking on the phone with my puppy walker, as well as knowing I was flying out tomorrow.
So we make our round and Mike S had encouraged me when he passed me on the walk, he came on the bus to see if I was OK after, and I said well I'm here. I just couldn't stop the tears as my face was buried in Honey's fur and stroking her soft chest telling her good dog for such and awesome, awesome job. I finally was able to stifle most of the tears, but by golly the head ache and sore eyes were still raging. Everyone finished up their walks and we headed back to the foundation and still, I was having a hard time keeping from gushing. We got back and went out and breaked the dogs and then came back to the room. I had such a headache and was so worked up that I was feeling sick at my stomach. I talked with mike for a few on IM and then I laid down for a bit, falling asleep for about an hour. I then woke up and got up and packed up most of my suitcase and stuff to be ready to go. and then have tried to type up this post, but as I"m sitting here typing, I keep falling asleep and dozing off . Then I'll wake up, and I think I'm finally going to make it to finishing it at 2am! LOL!
So I'm putting down the laptop and going to crawl under the covers and put on my alarm clock and then wait for it to go off at 6am.
