Dog Show Expenses… GAG!

Sooo…  I’m getting ready for bed, wondering how it’s only 9:00, when it dawns on me;  I haven’t written a blog post.

Ugh.  Seriously.

It’s just one of those days I suppose.  I’m brain tired and body weary.  It’s only Tuesday but it feels like it should be Saturday.  It’s going to be a long week.

Photo shoot tomorrow afternoon.  Zoo school trip on Friday.  Leave for Regina Friday after supper.  Dog show from Saturday-Monday.  Head home Monday…  like the weekend never happened at all.  😉  I like lazy boring weeks with only one or two scheduled things to remember.  A couple photo shoots plus all the regular every day stuff.  I love being AWAY AT a dog show, but the getting ready while having to continue doing everything else is exhausting.

I booked our hotel room tonight.  I have to admit, it made me gag a little.  I think this is the very first year I’m handling expenses all on my own.  I’ve been showing dogs for other people for so many years that I’ve never actually had to cover my expenses all myself before.  It is a pretty amazing experience showing a puppy that I bred though…  it’s like nothing else really.  And while the large expenses make me want to gag, they’ll be worth it in the end.  Just got to get back to finding a client dog or two to help absorb things a little.  It’s always much easier on the pocket book to SHARE the burden that are show expenses.  LOL
