Agility Up The Wazoo

SUMMARY: And comin' out the ears.
Well, boys and girls, friends and family, I'm heading out for a weekend of USDAA agility in Santa Rosa. First trial in 6 weeks.

I will try to be:
  • Upbeat
  • Positive
  • Forgiving to myself and my dogs (I'm pretty much always forgiving to other people already)
  • Enthusiastic
  • Silent about my failures
  • Quietly cheerful about my successes
Next weekend I have off, and then--oh, then, gentle readers--I plunge into a planned insanity of agility, six of the next following seven weekends doing agiliy trials, with five of those six being CPE.  If I don't come out of that agility frenzy with Boost's C-ATCH, I will be greatly surprised (and dismayed).

But I'm getting ahead of myself.

They had been forecasting a huge storm starting Wednesday evening this week (it started more like late Thursday afternoon around here), with huge red warnings on the weather sites like "1.5 inches of rain expected!" So far, in my yard: barely measureable. And, except for the wind and occasional showers, it looks like the storm is a fizzle.

So, happy happy to go off to the arena (under cover) and still be able to get some frisbee in out on the lawn ("in out on", how's that for a phrase?).

Hope you all have a lovely weekend while I'm out there trying to remember to be a better person.
