september 6 – 9, 2017…

for these days, i am especially grateful for…

…my significant other, buggs!! without him, i would probably not be a fully-functioning and highly capable, independent individual. he is my better half, my way better half. he keeps me company, entertains me, judges other people’s characters or lack thereof for me, loves me, exercises me, alerts me to noises that i can no longer hear, co-pilots adventures with me, and protects me. he was the only dog for me. and, other than some embarrassing barks at our server, (which no other dog did, but now that i think about it…no other dog was sitting at the table either…in his own chair, while being given bites of pastrami…oh my dear god!! things are suddenly beginning to make some kind of sense!! what the fuck is wrong with me??? was i that fucking exhausted that i didn’t realize where i was or who i was with??? seriously, how embarrassed my friend must have been!!! i didn’t even realize until just this very moment. i feel like a complete idiot.) too ashamed to finish this one, not of buggs, because he’s a dog…but, of myself for putting him down there and making him an equal to all of the diners of that pricey restaurant…

…a safe trip up with someone else’s dog and an eventual reuniting of dog and owner…

…a place to sleep at 0230…

…a nice hot shower later that morning and clean clothes to wear…

…getting to see my motivational friend after quite a long while. the wonderful restaurant that she picked out, sitting right on gig harbor docks. the awesome brunch that she treated me to. and, just the plain fact that we got to visit was very nice for me. (however in hindsight, that wasn’t just a faux pas that i made it was a four paw, one tail, two bat ears, and one toothy grin “pas” and he sat directly across from her grinning the whole time. r*****d is right…i am a fucking moron!!!)…

…a nice place to stay in bremerton…

…j**s talking me through the emotions that come out when i get tired. for giving me a reprieve from workouts and full sixty minute cardio while i’ve been gone. she’s tough, but fair and kind…

…rest stops…lots of well-lit, flush toilet rest stops…thank you california, oregon, and washington…good use of taxpayer dollars!!! nevada, you just suck with your unlit, filthy, pit potties…

…p**l for his kindness and compassion…

…being in my home. it’s beauty thrills me and so does it’s people and culture. i felt alive the minute i crossed the border. within five minutes i was greeted by the smell of rain, rain, and a single beautiful bolt of lightning…

…getting to stop and put my feet up tonight. no car camping for us tonight!! woo-hoo…

…being able to drive for up to fourteen hours and keep my wits about me…even white knuckling it in the pitch black, through fires, and road construction…

…not hitting or running over any of the animals that ran in front of me…deer, coyotes, chipmunks, and something that looked like a pig…

i am confident. i am capable. i am worthy.

namaste.
