Back To Watch

March 10, 2014

I decided to hang out at the local USDAA trial this weekend to support my hubby and daughter as well as some of my students.  I am so glad that I did.  I got to see a lot of great runs but most importantly I got a small feel of “getting back into it”.  I […]

Know Your Triggers

February 24, 2014

Very important to know what sets you off.  Whether it is about being anxious, angry, depressed, happy, whatever the emotion, they all have triggers.  The triggers I am most aware of are the things that make me mad.  I do not come down off mad easily or quickly.  I wish my happy triggers kept me […]

Feeling Good

January 24, 2014

Feeling pretty darn good today.  🙂    Got a good check from the physical therapist.  My change of sleeping positions has helped.  My tailbone was a little off but took no time to put back.  Scar tissue in my leg is improving as well as movement.  I am able to jog three times as long […]

You never know what you can do until you try.  You never know how strong you are until you are tested.   Ain’t that the truth.  I have been without cookies, candy or cakes for over a month now.  Two weeks ago I gave up my Chai.  The candy thing was a breeze compared to […]

I have run across a bit of a quandary for myself I think.  My husband, daughter and I have put together a class just for us where we can work through courses, sequences and problems with our own dogs.  It is our private support group in ways to assure we are getting all the work […]

Eating Dessert First

January 6, 2014

I have always been someone that puts off the “great” stuff until last.  I believe that I was trying to savor it.  If I forced myself to eat chicken salad I would pile all the chicken in the corner and eat it last, I hate lettuce – boring.  If I had a meal that had […]

There is a reason why they tell you that it is a bad idea to hang around people that are doing what you are trying to quit.  Like AA.  They don’t recommend that you be friends with those that are drinking.  If you are trying to give up smoking don’t hang around those that you […]

Medical Update #7

December 29, 2013

I had my third hip check up (3 month post-up) and I actually got to see the doctor!!!  Wow!!!  It was nice for a change.  The next good news was that he has given me the green light for activity, including my agility!!  I thought it was going to be another month until I had […]

Raising Kids 101

November 8, 2013

Every school day my son and I enjoy a “brief” conversation on the way home from school.  It is only a 10 minute ride, so it truly is brief.  Occasionally we take a ride to the store to grab a few things and swing by the Starbucks for a treat, that gives us about 20 […]

Feeling A Little Better….

October 24, 2013

  Apollo came to me with the name Oliver.  Because of the crescent moon he got a new name.   Apollo with Prize – The leader of my horse pack and the only horse he respected.   It’s been a rough week.  As many of you already know, I lost one of my babies this week. […]
