Agility

The feeling of sleepiness when you are not in bed, and can't get there, is the meanest feeling in the world. ~Edgar Watson Howe

We finished our beginning agility class last night -- Dakota did really well. She even took the see-saw (with some balking, but she did eventually go on it under her own steam). I meant to bring the camera and completely forgot (bad, bad M).

Next week, we start Intermediate Agility (where the teacher assures us we will be stuck for a while -- apparently it's the place where you learn most of how to really do agility with your dog. Beginning is really just to teach all the obstacles, except the weave poles, which come next class). The only bad part? It's a SEVEN O'CLOCK AT NIGHT.

Those of you who know me understand why that horrifies me. I'm up early, early and by the time 7:30 or 8:00 hits, I'm ready for bed.

It wouldn't be SO bad, except we have to memorize the courses. And occasionally, they can get complicated (Jump, jump, tunnel, jump, walk-it, chute, jump, ramp, jump jump, table -- you get the idea). My brain surely won't be up to that much challenge that late at night! Looks like I may have to schedule a siesta on Thursdays.

===========================

Anyway, I've got to get writing before I don't have time this a.m. -- so, have a great day!!

The Part of You That No One Sees is Troubled



You are compassionate, caring, and soothing.
You like other people to depend on you...
In fact, you don't feel right unless you are helping someone out.

Underneath it all, you feel the burden of everyone's problems.
Without your guidance, you fear that many people's worlds would fall apart.
You like to feel in charge, even if it brings you a lot of stress.



Okay, kinda...

I know just how you feel about being out late. My precepts class at church starts at 7 and ends at 9with a break for refreshments. I always leave at the break. I can't stay up that late usually.

Sounds like Dakota is doing great, however, so maybe it is worth it.

The Part of You That No One Sees is Cunning

You are innocent, sweet, and young at heart. You present a purity that many people find appealing. However, you are often tired of people treating you like a child.

Underneath it all, you enjoy being babied and pampered. You have been known to feign inexperience to get out of sticky situations. You fear getting old and losing your childlike charms.


I always need a good laugh in the morning.

Have a good day, Marianne! Sorry Agility is so late in the evening.

I know what you mean about the late night. I get up early and usually by 3pm I'm getting tired.

re quiz: The Part of You That No One Sees is Cunning

Have a good Friday.

I love the quote and I know how it feels. I've been fighting it for two weeks while my body slowly comes back from a bout with the flu.

I picked that red bubble stuff and I got:

You are powerful, passionate, and dominant.
You have a vision of how things should be, and you do your best to make things happen.
People rely on you for your strength. You are a rock to many.

Underneath it all, you aren't so sure about your passions.
So many ideas spark your interest, it is hard for you to get behind a select few.

However, you see indecision as a sign of weakness. So you pursue your goals full force - no matter how foolish they turn out to be.

YOu KNOW that is not me. HAHAHAH

Oh, that class time will be tough. Wish we could trade since I'm a night owl trying to go to bed earlier so I can get up earlier. Unfortunately it's not working.

Brandy said...

I can function early, but am a serious night owl. I don't know how you do it.
Are the agility courses helping Dakota?
I hope you have a fabulous day!
