I'm in Monroe, Louisiana for a dog agility trial. I have been half inclined not to come all week. Part of it is the 5 hour drive and the fact that they didn't finish today until just a few minutes ago -- I know because people who run in my class just showed up at the hotel.
Of course, they always get things going faster on Sunday, as every one is ready to go, especially since this is a 4 day trial.
When we run in Dallas, we go small to tall, more experienced dogs to less experienced in both class, and I'm usually done and out by 2:00 pm. This trial is large to small, and in one ring, they start with the less experienced dogs. Unfortunately both of my dogs are in the Excellent class, which puts us at the end of the day.
The drive wasn't bad. I've been listening to Wicked, the whole trip. I recently signed up for Audible books and while I don't listen much in town, it's nice for a long drive. So far, Wicked is an interested book. It's about the Wicked Witch of the West.
I also downloaded some inexpensive books that I had already read and liked, but years ago, in case I didn't like Wicked.
I really like my hotel room. It's a premium single and has a microwave and refrigator. I brought my food from Diet Gourmet, though I'm eating out every night. I also brought an extra vial of Symlin and an extra vial of Insulin. I'll put them in the small cooler on the way home.
Packing the new CPAP machine went well, and I brought all those pieces. So far, the only things I know I left were treats for the dogs and socks, so I'm hitting the Walmart across the street after dinner. Better than forgetting Syringes.
I think I'm going to get to see my niece tomorrow morning, and my sister and mom are thinking of coming Sunday. They all live in Brandon Mississippi. Niece is visiting her father in Shreveport this weekend, and since Monroe is on the way, and the trial site is right on the highway, she hasn't got an excuse not to drop by and visit. I'll get to meet her fiancee this way too.
Husband is at home, he doesn't do dog shows.
