I was hoping to get down to Periland Agility this past weekend to try some more CPE with Tessa and Dean, but I didn't get down.
On Saturday I was dead tired. I figured I would take the day to relax and then go on Sunday. I spent much of Saturday catching up on house things, and just being with the dogs. We did absolutely nothing!
On Sunday I woke up with a bit of a stuffy nose and decided, again, to stay home. I think that was the wise choice. Getting up at 5:30 to spend a morning in the cold running Agility probably would have made that worse. So, I stayed home and did absolutely nothing again.
I was sorry, though, to miss the opportunity, and I hope I don't regret it down the road.
I skipped the last trial that Maddie was supposed to attend. Had I known it would be her last, I would have been there.
Of course, I don't anticipate anything like that - Tessa and Dean should both have plenty of trials in their future. And I have quite a lot of competition coming up in early November, in Freestyle and, hopefully, Rally. I should be able to fit in a few more CPE trials, too.
This is a long ride with plenty of chances to progress. I need to remember that I don't have to try to do it all within the span of a couple of weeks!
