Yesterday (Sunday) was my (dog) Club's first trial.  I was Trial secretary and was in charge of all the paperwork.  I have never had this position before.  I left my house at 5:30 am to be there at 6:30 am to find out what other work needed done. 
 
I frigging got lost and didn't get there till 7:40 am.  The competition started at 7:00 am.  SO, I am driving around these state gamelands in fog that could be cut with a knife, my windshield fogging from the moisture.  I kept thinking about hitting a deer which I have done in the past.   Turns out I missed a turn because someone took out the road sign in the last week.
 
I was so tense that when I got out of the car I had to peel my fingers from the steering wheel and could hardly walk when I got out of the car.  As the day went my muscles got tighter and tighter.
 
After the competition was over I found out how much more paperwork should have been done beforehand.  aaahhhhh talk about tense!!!!  Wellll today I an paying for it. 
 
Went to work, came home and took puppy Blitz out while I watered new shrubs and while playing with him and the hose the ran into the back of my hand with his teeth OUCHH.  ice, ice, take rings off before hand swells.  My friend shows up and we plant more in garden.  Sitting here and ankles hurt along with calves, thighs, hips, area where ovaries used to be, shoulders, lower back and most of all neck is killing me. 
 
I guess it is true that if we really overdo we pay.  But it was worth it, I had a great time yesterday and learned alot about my sport.

KellieJo, You don't have to be sorry if I didn't laugh I would probably be in big trouble, LOL.  The deer can cause a ton of damage.  I live in The country (sort of) but when (if) I drive at night I at least know the roads around here.  I was really in the boondocks with 1 lane bridges and parts of the road  not there cause they fell over the hillside.......(((((shivvverrs)))) I hate that.  hahahha  try driving real fast on roads like that..........

So sorry. I hate getting lost.

You are really tough to come home from work and do some gardening. Unfortuantely now you are hurting but like you said you had a good time. We have got to live our lives the best we can.

I bet your garden looks nice.
I struggle with FM,Raynauds Syndrome,gastroparesis, IBS and depression. I trust in God with all things. Been a tough journey and it's not getting any easier but thanks to God and my family I am not alone.

I recently moved to Nebraska from Colorado (I have been here a little over a year) and I still cringe if I have to drive at night cuz the dang deer are everywhere! 4 out of every 5 cars has front end damage due to hitting a deer, well maybe not quite that many, lol. These guys scare the crap outta me! They literally come from out of no where and we have a small car, a Honda Accord so I really am scared of hitting one. Plus it would break my heart if I did! :(

So sorry, I forgot to add that I am so glad you had a good time and learned so much. Too bad we have to pay for things afterwards though. I got started on the whole deer thing and lost my train of thought..lol

Hi Denise. What breed is your pup? I have a golden. I understand the deer problem. I'm was originally from the midwest and the deer were all over our subdivision. The getting lost thing is something I do all of the time. This morning I dropped my husband off at the airport at 4:30 a.m. I got lost just leaving the airport-the signs were so confusing to me. I realized I was holding onto the steering wheel very tightly. Told myself to calm down and I eventually found my way out of the airport and on to a familiar road.

You mentioned driving through fog. Does fog bother your fibro. It always gives me a horrible headache. Don't know if it is the moisture or maybe barometric pressure has something to so with it.

Puppy lover, my boy is a German Shepherd, 3.5 months old. 
My hubby brought home a Golden many years ago, she was a stray at his truck terminal.  She gave us 9 puppies a month later, one of which I kept.  My very first, very own, all mine, dog.  She was awesome, coat (fur) like a golden but jet black and she was smaller. 
 
I don't know if the fog bothers me because my neck has been killing me for about a week or so anyway.
 
Thanks all for the nice words.

Denise, you had quite the day. Just driving in fog would of knotted my muscles, add to that
the stress of being late and have to perform a job you have never done must of put your
fibro in overdrive. You enjoyed yourself though and that is great! Now you can rest!!!

I just thought I would add a deer story to the tail end of this.  While watching the news this morning there was a story (and a picture) about a minivan that had a deer run out of the woods on a major highway.  The deer literally went thru the windshield.  The driver is in ICU.  This is a highway that I drove on Sunday.  The highway that took me to the land of the lost LOL.
 
Thanks for the understanding of what stress does to us, it kills me and there is a ton of it here.  There is not much rest around here BUT hubby is out of town till Thursday night and I turned off the answering machine at the office.  That way the calls go right to my cell and I am not going to the office unless I need to ship something.  YES!!!!  I might (probably not) take it easy

Denise,

I jsut want to say that I am so proud of what you accomplished, even if it didn't go so smoothly in the beginning. Happy for Blitz too.

Yesterday I took Jasmine to the lake because it was too hot. She had a blast. She is almost five months now. Well, 19 weeks. Close.

Take care,

Hugs, Karen

Hey Karen, thank you.  What is Jasmine's birth day?  Blitz is feb 10 th. 
 
The little monster LOVES water.  He goes in our koi pond, well not the deep yet, he goes in the stream which has deep parts.  He also chases water from the hose which was a disaster for me on Monday.........he was chasing and I was getting into it and my back of my hand and his teeth met  ouchowieee.  Swelling and clawlike hand, iced and all was not too bad.  It was my fault tongue

Jasmine was born January 20th. I could be wrong on the weeks, fibrofog doesn't help me much with this. She just got her big dog shots last week. She was good at the vets. Is biting less and minding better. I will send you a photo of her, she is getting big. But her sister Kia is bigger than her. Jasmine was the runt of the litter. Little sweetheart. I bet Blitz is getting big and beautiful.

Hugs, Karen
