Seems to be the theme lately, but forgive me once again for the sudden disappearance. My schedule was jam-packed with things to do this week that, unfortunately, did not involve Marge. It was mostly school stuff, and, thankfully, a lot of it is out of the way now. I've felt SO bad going in and out of the house 5 million times and not devoting enough time to my girl.
For those wondering, the trial is this upcoming weekend, not last weekend - sorry if I confused anyone. Honestly, I'm really worried about it. Class was cancelled last week, so we haven't practiced since last Tuesday (the last time I blogged about agility class).
There is a part of me that is considering not going. My first run is at 12 noon, so I'll get to the trial around 10, when every one will be there already. It's a busy, 3-ring trial. I'm not bringing a tent, and will be set up with friends.
The other part of me is saying I should just suck it up and go - I'm not going to lead out on course, it's at a park I know, and I have to trial sooner or later. I can't let one bad trial stop me.
Marge herself has actually been having a fantastic week, so much so that I'm considering lowering her dosage of L-Theanine now that the summer is gone. She even heard FIREWORKS last night and didn't react. That's unheard of!
And, of course, relating this all to the trial.. one part of me says that I should keep this momentum going and have a great day on Saturday, the other part says that me worrying about the trial is going to just ruin the whole mood of Marge being happy and calm and stuff.
Yes, I need to just relax. I know. Do they make a Relaxation Protocol for people?
