Honestly, I think I'm still recovering from the show last weekend. And we didn't even get up that early! I think that I am just out of practice. Anyway, when all was said and done, Lucky Clover did very well, and I think everyone came home with at least one ribbon. I personally got a first, second, and a sixth. I totally did not deserve the first. That was in my flat class, which I almost missed because I wasn't even dressed, because I thought that I would have time after warmup, but I didn't. So I was stressed, so Breezy was fast, and didn't want ot stop. Which meant we pretty much charged around the ring with our ears pinned back, resisting all cues to slow or stop. And yet we won. The judge must have fallen asleep at strategic moments. At least I got all my leads, though. Then in my next class I had a pretty good round, but Phil made me do this tight turn, because it was an EQ class, and I could totally do it, because I had done it in warmup, but I was just focusing on not crashing into either of the jump standards, so I missed the jump and had to turn around. So I got sixth in that one, but there were no hard feelings because it was just a schooling show, so practice makes perfect. My other class was the downeast medal qualifier, and I got second in that one, mainly due to the continuance of the anti-stopping coalition. And also the lack of any quantifyable ability to sitting trot. But for my first time out over the 2-3", I am pretty happy. There should be pictures up soon.

Sigh. This has been such a long week. First of all, I did not have LAX games at all until Friday, because this was our bye week. So we had practices everyday until Friday, when we had our game. Lost. Crap. But I scored a goal! But then they called it back because they forgot to stop the clock, so time had run out. But everyone said it should have counted. On Saturday, I had a lesson. That was fun. Then we took my Grandmother out for mother's day. And I literally spent the ENTIRE day today (it is now 3:53) doing homework. Bleh. At least I have a show next weekend. YAYYYYYY!!! Gonna be such a busy weekend, though, plus all of my projects are due. That makes me stressed. I don't even remember anything I put into this post. That is how fried my brain is right now. Guzzzzzzz.....
