Then someone 2 hours away really wanted me back for privates too...
then I found out that a trainer who I'm pretty good friends with would be teaching seminars in GA at the lovely place where I stayed back in October before Cynosport, so I ended up sort of inviting myself down to hang out with them for a few days after I was done in North Carolina. Not having a teaching obligation while down there, I considered it to be my "dogs along with me" vacation of sorts. The weather wasn't the absolute best, but it wasn't awful either. Around 45 to 50F each day with rain on and off, but meanwhile at home in Maryland it SNOWED 6-8" of snow, melted a bit, then snowed some more. So by the time I got back yesterday it is COLD and there is nasty crunchy snow on the ground. So yeah. I miss Georgia now. I'm not one to really enjoy hot weather, so I really would not enjoy living down there in the summer very much, but I could see myself living down there in the winter for a while. And I may get a chance to say down there for a few weeks next winter... if you are located near northern GA and would like me to teach a seminar next winter (probably late Jan or sometime in Feb) let me know (this would be 2015). Nothing firmed up, just a fun thought.
|no snow down here!|
|The dogs are saying "WTF is this cold white crunchy crap?"|
|my car, brand new, when I got it 2 years ago. has a few crate scratches here and there now ;)|
|Intermediate and Small Ruff Tough Kennels. Now it has a Large and Intermediate.|
Edited to add: because I added teaching in at the beginning of Dec and Strafe did some agility for fun at the seminar in GA, I decided to take New Year's Weekend off. This was a hard decision because there are 2 AKC and 1 USDAA Trial all on soccer turf within a reasonable distance of me on that weekend. But I really wanted at LEAST 4 full weeks off of EVERYTHING other than walks and tricks and playing. So we don't have any trials till at least January 18th now.
