Eating in the cafeteria is pretty stressful. Julio really hates his Gentle Leader, and I can't quite get the hang of balancing the tray and heeling/working him. I'm sure I'll get better... eventually. But for now, I'm going to ease into it.
And the Kodiak route I tried today did not go well. Somehow we did a complete diagonal of an intersection we weren't even supposed to cross. I am so ashamed that I'm struggling with this so much. And so scared that something's wrong with me. I was so upset, and still am. But at least I'm more rational, and surprisingly, I'm not curled up in a ball, refusing to go out again. I know that's not going to change anything.
It's just so scary when that happens!
But at least I'm safe, and I have a plan to avoid that happening again.
First of all, I need to know the other corners of that intersection. So that way I'll at least know where I am if that happens. Secondly, I think it would be wise to pattern Julio with that corner, since I'm struggling with it.
Well, I'm going to go do the articles for Eastern Civ.
And try to rest. I wonder if I could get away with relieving Julio a half hour earlier tonight so I could get more sleep?
