It was a great day…
I’ve been pretty numb lately… I haven’t been specifically unhappy, but I haven’t been happy either. Things that I would have found joy in before have just kind of washed over me. I don’t know if I’m overwhelmed, underwhelmed, or what… but I haven’t been myself. Today though? Today was a good day.
Today started like any other… me, knowing I should be excited about the dog show… but just not feeling much. Stuck in a fog. But somewhere it got lifted. I got to handle Clair (who is a bear), my friend Rosalie’s Chihuahua – and who showed very well for me. I got to visit with all my local dog show peeps, including Jen (one of my Adult Pod Volunteers from Camp fYrefly). And I got to take the wee girlie to the show site after the main show was over (with a special show lead that I made just for her) so she could practice for tomorrow, which was SUCH a treat. She’s going to do awesome in Juniors. 😀 And the rest of the evening was just me, Damon, and the girlie… just being a family and ignoring anything else that might have nagged at the mind. I needed today. Hopefully this is the start of me growing back into myself.
So… no plans for tomorrow morning? Pop by the Soccer Center in Saskatoon and come find me. 🙂 Or, if you’re available in the early afternoon, the girlie should be making her debut around 1:30 or so… come by and cheer her on. 😀
