Last night, I was up for a long, long time.
It was pouring rain most of the night, and fairly mild for early March. Of course I had my windows open. The wind was howling and the rain was pounding down. My mom used to tell me how much she loved to just lay in bed and listen to the rain. I tried hard to let it coax me into sleep...but I didn't...my mind was racing.
Of course, there was lots of election coverage. I am so proud of Hillary. Yes, I am a Hillary supporter. Even more so, I'm excited that my vote is actually going to count for something in the PA primary.
I had a rough night at group last night...felt like I over shared (in SW talk "self disclosed" too much). Though if the general rule of thumb is, "was it for you or the client?" it was certainly for the client and I think will be helpful in her overwhelming need to get medication and counseling for her overwhelming depression. But still, I felt vulnerable in front of these clients and unsure of myself as a clinician. At least my self reflection skills are at an all time high.
And the dogs...oh the dogs. Finney outright REFUSED to go outside this morning. Yes it was wet and still raining a bit...but he looked at me as if to say, "if you pee out there mom, I will."
He makes a good point. Anyway, I snapped this photo on the Blackberry last night of Mags spooning Finney (sorry for the poor quality, it was taken with a BB)
I watched old episodes of "The Office" last night...god I miss TV and especially that show...can't wait until it comes back on as there was literally NOTHING on last night...not even a new episode of "Parking Wars." And where was "House?" I needed some Hugh last night. Oy!
Work is rocking! Kathy and I are making a mega proposal next week to the behavior section about starting a support group for people with challenging animals (either with behavior or chronic medical issues). We are both so excited about the premise of the group, what it could offer to our clients and the research we could produce as part of it. The energy around us at Bucks County Coffee yesterday was amazing...people must have been watching us because clearly we were basking in the glow of our budding collaboration. Kathy..."THIS IS GROUNDBREAKING!!!" HAHA!!
Kathy mentioned me in her blog...which I adore. Check it out at http://www.2cutedogs.com/
Oh, and here is a great photo of Finn...showing off the family jewels...again
I'm glad he likes my bed so much. Okay time to work...
