Hello all - time to get this lame post over with . I failed REG. Yup. I found out late Monday night (I am not sure I will ever check score on release like that again when I have to get up early for work the next morning) and spent all Tuesday with a big lump in my chest trying not to cry. So frustrating.
But in the end it is "just a test" and there is far worse things in the world than failing it. I feel rotten but I have to move on.
The only one happy I failed is Emile. He thinks this means more time for him to make a heating blanket nest next to the laptop.
So I am in recovery mode. I took some personal inventory, and decided to try again. And if you are asking yourself "she would actually give up?" - why yes I would. The trade-off right now is not worth it. But I have to look to the future instead and hope that in the end this will be.
I got a 72. Passing is a 75. Now it isn't a percent or exact points, but as you can see, I was close. Close enough that a different day and a different test might have gone differently. I generally know the material. I need to beef it up though.
I sucked it up. Paid for another test. Registered today for January 19th and set-up my two months of calendars.
January 1 - Mystery Quilt day...I really REALLY still want to do this.
January 3 - Show N' Go at Argus Ranch. This is an obedience/rally thing. Mom is going with me.
January 12 - Western WA dog cluster in Puyallup. Originally I was going to enter Nim all three days. Thanks for my failure I will do Monday only. I am making mom do it too.
January 19 - REG do over.
I am in a mood right now folks. And this blog post is going to wander because seriously, who wants to keep talking about REG or reading about it?
It is well into December. Check out my advent!
During the snow I hung up my bird house. They won't touch it. They sit on my sill next to it. I am hoping they will figure it out.
Earth Balance has come out with vegan boxed mac and cheese. This is a game changer and better still...it is not gluten free. I have already bought two more boxes...white "cheddar."
This photos cracks me up. Do you think Nim wishes he could be on the pellet stove with them?
And finally. My sister is knitting tiny unicorns. I told her I need one to pass REG (and those 3 other sections after it).
We are in a weird storm right now. I am pretty sure everywhere except for Florida is having bad weather right now.
Have a safe night!
