Yup! I did it! I moved! And I only cried once! I landed at 3, got home at 5 and my mom made me a delicious dinner!
And it was healthy! I was happy to be home, although extremely tired. Jack behaved very well on the plane. I’m such a proud mama!
He loves the house! He has to much space to play. And he wants to play with the cats…the cats are scared…
I met a lady on the plane who gave me infos about a psychological research project on ptsd, I have to contact the people to see if I can volunteer.
I’m not sure my mom realizes how serious I am about studying psychology. I’m gonna start a certificate in psychology online, hopefully when I go back to canada I have enough credits to be considered for the phd at McGill. So that’s where I’m at now. The journey has officially started!
We know that some animals, like dogs and apes, can laugh. Can an animal also have a sense of humor? Join Anthony as he discusses how Koko the Gorilla and some other animals show promising signs.

I”m done…. I guess I’ll do the rest another day… It’s a mood booster though! Have you ever tried to do that? How did you feel ?
Of course I’m starting this challenge with the word ANIMAL!
I’m going to share with you lessons that I’ve learned from my favorite Animal, Jack!
1- Be resilient
When you fall on your face (he literally does), get back up and jump again! I don’t know how many times Jack has tried to jump with one of his toys (not all were given to him), twice his size usually he falls, but then he gets back up, tries another angle and jump again. Wouldn’t it be great if we acted like that in the face of failure?
2- Share your love
Express affection, to the ones you love. Don’t be scare to make them feel special. There is no way to stay mad when Jack is jumping around because he’s happy to see you. Sharing your love with others can only have good repercussions.
3-Never refuse love
Never turn down acts of love. He’s always up for cuddling, when he gets tired he just goes away. But he always take a little bit of love from others.
4-Appreciate the small things in life
Jack is an expert in that matter. It doesn’t take him much to be happy. A new gift, a trip to the garage to go take out the trash makes his day. We should appreciate more these little moments of joy.
5- Be brave
Jack is a Shi Tzu, but he is not scared of big dogs. Sometimes I’m scared for him, but most of the time after showing his bravery, the big dogs befriend him. Jack think he can fly, he’s always jumping, for such a small dog you would think he’d be scared of falling, but he play on is strength and agility. Sometimes we should forget that we are small, be brave and take calculated risks.
I’ve been having night cravings! Since yesterday. Probably because I sleep way too late. Sleeping during the day helps me stay away from food (although it’s not why I do it), but my insomnia makes me hungry. Today it’s worse because I didn’t eat enough, my sister in law ate my quinoa cookies. Oh well… Tomorrow I wanna make crepes, if I wake up early. Or maybe eggs, that will make me eat less for dinner. I have no idea what I’m gonna cook. Any ideas ? Ohh maybe lemon chicken breast with roasted potatoes and a salad. Sounds easy enough… I’m gonna need to buy the chicken though… There ‘s only pork in the fridge. I could do some white fish ceviche on Wednesday, it’s good with fried plantains though, I don’t know how many calories that is.
Am I gonna spend the whole post talking about food? It’s making me more hungry! I really need to go out tomorrow, I have to take care of some paperwork but it’s so hard for me to get out of this house! Just the thought of putting on my coat turns me off. Jack would be happy though! Hum maybe I’ll take him with me to the groceries, but I’m scared of leaving him outside by himself, he’s so cute what if somebody steals him? I would never forgive myself!
I really don’t know how you guys bare to read my ramblings. I promise I’ll post something well structured later. For the moment you are visiting inside my head.
I’m starting to be sleepy so I’m gonna try to close my eyes and see if sleep will come to me. Good night my fellow insomniacs.
Today was an okay day, I found out I might be able to fly with Jack with little hassle (Thanks to Kat), it made my day. I’m seeing my psychologist tomorrow and I’m gonna ask her if she can give me a prescription to have Jack as my Emotional Support dog. I really hope she doesn’t mind because travelling with him might cost me money I don’t have and I can’t imagine my life without him. It makes me sad to think about that.
I don’t know what I’m gonna talk about in my 1 am post yet (it’s the time I get inspired the most). Insomnia boosts my creativity, fixing my insomnia is lowering my creativity level…. Hum…I need to fin a better time to write because when I start working I won’t be able to have sleepless night. I need a new book to read, a positive one, an inspiring one but I don’t want one telling me what to do to change my life. Please let me know if you have any suggestion!
I’m having a sad moment today, it will probably pass by the time I go to bed but right now it sucks 😦 . Anxiety causes my body to ache and I hate that. I did some stretching but I still feel tense. I’m watching American Idol, art makes me happy so I’m going to do my best to enjoy it :). Oh dear! A sad face and an happy face in the same paragraph! Now I’m actually smiling for realizing that lol. Emotionally stable much! My sister in law just broke a glass, I couldn’t stop laughing, she is so clumsy! It was the last glass in the house, she broke all the others lol ! She is a very funny person, by accident lol, and she is always laughing and it’s actually contagious. I invited her to watch the show with me! I’m really trying to make an effort towards being more accepting and tolerant.I’m not even getting mad that she’s singing along!
Sadness gone :). Jack is licking bf’s feet, they must smell bad lool . He’s been scratching his butt since this he came from the groomers, poor baby, but it’s funny watching him running around trying to find somewhere to scratch it. I put Vaseline for him but it doesn’t last for long until he starts scratching again. I should look it up. My baby has an ear infection also! That’s what happens when he’s not with me for two months. I’m treating his ears with white vinegar, he hates it but it helps him a lot, his ear is clearing up. Now it’s time to take care of his skin, it might be an allergic reaction to god knows what, I hate see him calm. I feel like a bad mother. Found out it might be because he was shaved, they suggested to give him a bath with gentle shampoo. Do you have any advice for me? I need help ! I’ll let you know how he’s doing tomorrow after the bath.
That’s all for my day!
