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.  😀
