In C'ville

We finally got here last night around 8 PM. From what Hubby told me about his schedule, I figured that it would be late-ish before we got there. We decided to eat something before we left. After we got here, I sent him off to play with this lawyer friend, and just hung out at the house with my sister and the parents. Hubby and my father talked late into the evening. I kept falling asleep in my chair, so I went to bed a little earlier than Hubby did.

Hubby got off to his CLE this morning. I get to hang around and have a slow morning getting caught up on my blogging and getting hyped up on caffeine. I think it will be later this morning before any of my family is ready to do anything. And that is all right. I have no problems spending some personal time with my computer.

With the onset of my period, we are now waiting for the IVF consult on March 2. At least we have some hope during this waiting. At some point in the future, we will have a greater chance of getting pregnant. (See trying to be more positive. Not sure if it is working, though.)

Apparently, Gertude and I will be in the Intermediate agility class during the next session. It is the same instructor we have had for the last few classes. Apparently, this class prepares us for competition. There is an agility competition I could enter toward the end of March, but I am not sure if Gertrude and I will be ready. I am still thinking about it. At the very least, I plan on volunteering to help out at the event. That way I can get a better feel for what it is like to compete. I think I would like another year to gain confidence in myself as a handler, and in Gertude on the course. She has come a long way since we started doing agility. I think it has been good for both of us. Now if only I could get motivated to train her outside of class.

I really wanted to do agility with my dog, but she ended up with a bum knee and she's a BIG girl, so I try to take it easy with her. It sounds like the perfect distraction for this month for you!

Queenie, I understand about health issues and agility. Our boy dog has arthritis in his back, so I am not going to do agility with him. I do want to get him doing some therapy dog stuff, though. I think he would love it, and it works a little better with his health issues.

I love doing agility with Gertrude. I think she likes it too. That girl is awfully athletic, so she took to it really well. It is also something she does with mom, which she really enjoys.
