I am excited this morning! Today is the big day I have been waiting for all week! You may ask what is special about this early Thursday morning? Today is the day my peer counselor, Jamie is coming, and then I will have a bus trip today! I am going to the bus stop with Jamie, BUT I will be getting on the bus by myself and am responsible for pushing the red button and request a stop. The I will walk the block to the library myself! Jamie will be behind the bus observing me carefully in her car. If i can do that safely, and get myself home to the bus stop below the hill from Marty's and my house, then I will probably be most likely go myself by bus!! i am getting towards independence, and i am so excited!! Hopefully, I can get the permission to go myself! I will be posting results of my adventures by bus after i have lunch when I get home. I should get home shortly after the noon hour. I will then be free the rest of the day!

Thank you! I should be safe as my case manager Susan says one is safer on a bus than in a car! I feel much safer, and the people who ride with me are so special! I will have a great time I am sure as I get to see the librarians who are my good friends!

I had a bus adventure to Singapore last week and I was exhausted, feet felt like breaking into pieces, hope yours isn't?

I am sorry about your bad bus ride. My ride will be fine it is just eight blocks that are so hard to walk, so the bus is better! Hope you don't have that bad experience again.
