One of THOSE Weekends

SUMMARY: Not what I'd planned for, although not a disaster.
Here's what I really wanted to get this three-day weekend:

  • For Tika: Top Ten points in Gamblers, Snooker, and Standard. (More Top Ten points in Jumpers would be OK, but mainly as security padding, as I think we probably have enough to stay in the top 10 for the year already.)
  • For Boost: Jumpers Qs and Snooker Super-Qs.

Here's what I got:
  •  Tika: A very few Jumpers Top Ten points (4, out of 2 runs), one gamblers Q (no top 10 pts), one pairs Q, one Steeplechase Q and win ($20, pays our Steeplechase entry fee), a DAM team Q (not even in the top 3 for medals), and three "unattached" Qs for DAM individual classes that count towards lifetime totals but not towards anything else. Including a lovely win in Snooker and 3rd in Gamblers (sheesh--needed those in the *normal* snooker and gamblers classes!).
  • Boost: Two gamblers Qs, one pairs Q, and a DAM team Q.

Sigh. It's definitely better than a no-Q weekend. And the dogs mostly held up well, no problems from Boost's broken dewclaw toenail. But really, couldn't I have gotten at least ONE of the things I particularly wanted?

I am amazingly exhausted and sore. I will undoubtedly write more at some other time.
