Aren’t they so cute…………
I am up early. I was up since 4:30. Usually I am not awake when my husband gets ready for work. I guess it is because I have too much on my mind. I have therapy this morning at 9:00. I am always a little anxious going there. I like my therapist a lot. But I am still getting to know her. She is still getting to know me. I think she doesn’t quite believe that I can handle going back to the past and the trauma. I know that she just wants to be sure before we do go there. We have been talking a lot about coping skills. DBT (Dialectal Behavioral Therapy) is got the skills that I have learned over the years in therapy. I have a serenity room that I can go at home to help me with a difficult session. The room is full of my favorite things, colors, collectables. But there are also candles and soft relaxation music. It’s the brightest room in the house. It gets the sun all day. Its decorated to be cheerful.
As far as the puppy issue goes, my husband and I had a long talk last night about it. That’s why I am so tired this morning. We stayed up late trying to figure out how to come up with the money to purchase the puppy. I hate how that sounds. Purchase a puppy. That’s ridiculous because puppy’s are a living breathing animal. How and why do people even put a price on dogs or cats. We don’t put a price on babies. They are priceless. Animals should be priceless as well. But that’s not the real world and I have to go along with how things are in order to get a puppy.
We decided that I would take the money that I earn to save until I come up with enough for the puppy and all that goes along with having a puppy. You know, the crate, bed, toys, collar and leach. It should not take me that long as I found some prices for golden’s that are only 450.00. So if I want my puppy I need to buckle down and save my money. I am not very good at that. So if I accomplish this, getting the puppy is not the only reward. I will have proven that I can save money successfully.
I am excited.
