I wanted to come in and put an appearance in the journal. I am still home with family until tomorrow and have enjoyed my time here very much. New Year's was spent with family and friends and I had a really fun time. Thanks to everyone who made New ear's what it was. My Birthday was on Wednesday, and I greatly appreciated all of the "Happy Birthday" wishes and the dinner I had out with family to cap off the day.

It is my last night home most likely until the summer, (I realized today that I have a month between the end of Spring semester and the beginning of Summer, and so I'm thinking of coming back around that time), and it's hard to believe that two weeks have gone by. I will miss my friends and family that I have spent time with here, but I'm glad to have had this time with them. My year has gotten off to a tremendous start. It's just what I needed to recharge and hit the books when I go back.

Seven years ago today, I met LivDog for the first time. Time really does fly. Her puppy raisers e-mailed me yesterday and let me know that she will be arriving in Maine on this coming Friday. I really cannot stress enough how wonderfully amazing they are as people. Things could not have worked out any better way if they had tried, I honestly do believe that. Excitement and nerves are in a battle for who will win out right now in terms of going back into class. I know I'll be fine, it's just getting to that point that I need to get through. I received my room information for when I will be at the school via a phone call yesterday. This really is happening, crazy! I will update hopefully daily in the journal as to my training progress and such.

I think that's about all from here, at least from what I can remember. I leave here sometime around mid-morning and head to New York, where I will stay in a hotel close to the school tomorrow night and then drive over in the morning, at which time the fun begins. Well, okay, I won't drive, someone else will! I almost forgot: I went over to the agency for the blind on Thursday, (where I used to volunteer teaching braille), and saw my old teacher of the visually impaired, among other people. Not having seen him in years, it was really great to do so. I'm pretty tired for whatever reason, and so think I will wind down and then try to sleep. I think everything's packed, but that's what tomorrow morning is for, to put the last few touches on packing. Take care, I hope all are well, more soon.

Good luck at GEB. I know that mixture of nervousness and excitement.

I'm glad things are working out well for the Liv Dog. I hope she enjoys life as a pampered pet, and I hope you get a fabulous new guide. I definitely look forward to reading more about your training.

Good luck in class. I look forward to hearing about your experiences there and the new dog, of course!
