my life - the last two weeks

I haven't been doing a very good job keeping up with this blog lately. I think I've just been busy with college and haven't necessarily had the time, and then when I have the time I don't know what all to write. :) I have time now and I'm going to try and bring you up to date on everything in my life since the last time I have posted.

You have probably heard by now, but in case you haven't, the Dallas area got about a foot of snow a couple of weeks ago. The snow fall set a record for the Dallas-Fort Worth area, we have never had a foot of snow before. The only time I have ever seen that much snow was when I went to New Mexico several years ago for vacation. I got a day off of college and a long week end. It was very nice.
One thing that I have never quite thought about is how hard it can be to navigate the snow with a cain. It is pretty difficult, at least for me it was, because the snow sort of deadens the cain't sensativity. I needed assistance from my friends getting places, luckily it was only for a day until I could go home.

The next happy thing in my life is that I found out that my family and I are going to go to Colorado to skee over spring break. I absolutely can't wait!

The most important news of late is that I have officially been admitted to Guide Dogs for the Blind and I am scheduled to go to class in Oregon beginning on May 23!!!! :D I absolutely am thrilled! I will graduate with my guide dog 3 months from now!!! :D

Aside from all of that, I have basically just been doing the whole college thing. I wake up, go to class, take notes, go home and study, then hang out. I have just been kind of living the average college life I guess, but I can't complain too much about that, it's not too hard. :)


  1. Congratulations - I am SO happy for you! I was in Oregon for both of my guides and loved it --

  2. Hi, I just found your blog the other day and wanted to introduce myself. I'm Lauren, a teen puppy raiser for Guide Dogs, currently raising my first dog, Don.

    Its great to hear from a soon-to-be guide dog handler.

    Congratulations on getting accepted into Guide Dogs for the Blind. Hurray! I can't wait to hear more about your experience at GDB. So exciting- only 3 months till Dog Day!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging ;)

  3. Thanks Becky and Lauren! :D I definitely can't wait and I'll keep blogging Lauren. :) And Becky, how long were you in class in Oregon? Did you do the two week or the tree week ones.
