Started out not sleeping well and woke up about 5:00 and discovered the pump was disconnected. Since I had to get up early anyway, I did. Blood sugar was 150 after I finally got out the shower and got everything together. Corrected, ate breakfast.
Showed Macy the first time in conformation, boy was I nervous, was wondering if this morning was going to be the massive coronary event I pray for, heard every heart beat. We got through it. She won the puppy class, and going back in to compete for Winner's wasn't bad.
Blood sugar was 250 when I hit the car, I bolused right for breakfast, did the Symlin thing, etc. Had to have been the nerves, and I even was on my agility program!
We do this again tomorrow, and I think I'll add about 20% to the basal rate (and go with the agility rate), and see if I can have a better blood sugar. I'm going to set it around 6:00 am, and have it only go for half an hour, which is about as long as we did conformation.
Of course, showing Rally will be just as bad, poor Marcie is going to be very upset, but she'll get over it. Probably won't Q, but at least there is only one first time, and hopefully there won't be as many important people around the Rally ring. Part of the problem with conformation, is that I just don't fit in with those people. I'm a agility/obedience type. If you don't do dogs you wouldn't know the difference -- except we don't dress as well, for one thing.
Also, I bought the car. I almost bought the same car I had. But hey, I liked it. I ended up with an Escape. Husband thinks, and I agree we need custom cages, so I'm going to look for them at the shows this weekend -- there actually someone in the area that does them. Actually I brought it up.
The biggest thing, is that the crates I have know had lips on the side. If my crates were straight up and down they would fit better. And I could go with wire, but trust me they make more noise.
And I almost forgot -- I got in ALL of this week's exercise.
Blogging about it helps!
