Distraction through CCI dogs

Another way to distract myself is to think about my putative CCI dog. This comes up from because this week and next is my regional CCI's team training. I was initially sad I didn't get called but as it turns out it would have been incredibly poor timing.

Monday was Little T's EEG. Thursday was Little T's neuro apt. Friday (today) is Special K's class posting party. Saturday is this parent workshop to learn about how to talk to special needs kids about teasing and bullying and self-defense. This coming Tuesday is Special K's first day of Kindergarten and parent coffee. Wednesday I just arranged to meet with CCS to get Little T's OT put back to once a week. Thursday is Little T's speech evaluation. Next Saturday which would be graduation. C has an IEP workshop and I hope to go virtual flying.

Team Training is from about 9am-5pm and is about 90 miles away from where we live so it's not like I zip back to these events and then go back to Team Training.

I hope that I get called for November's team training and that I'm a lot less busy. Right now is is a particularly busy time. We have more apts coming up in the next few weeks as we prepare for Little T's first IEP due by his birthday on September 16. I think about how on earth I'd integrate a new dog right now. Waiting sucks but adding more stress is even worse. I think a service dog would eventually be more calming and helpful -- a beautiful happy thing that will decrease my stress and help me a lot but adding anything even a good thing is initially stressful. So I am grateful that for whatever reason I didn't get the call. But I sure do hope I get the call for November and that things are such that I can just go.

Hey hon, think happy thoughts about November and your wonderful dog who's waiting for you. I think you'll be right about the dog bringing in a new kind of stress for sure but at the same time its presence will be calming and helpful. :) In the meantime, take good care of yourself! (You can live doggies vicariously through me, hahah).
