Well, it turns out that I will probably/hopefully(??) get to see a lot more of the riding at Rolex this year than in the past because I went ahead and paid for a subscription to FEI TV It was about $40 and then $12.99/month thereafter. I'm sure I will cancel it after Rolex is over but I suppose paying $40 to get to watch isn't so bad.
The only problem is sleeping. Last night (for me) was the first day of Dressage. I dutifully had my computer up and proceeded to watch the first four or five tests. (Luckily I got to see Andrew Nicholson's test (the current leader) and can I just say it was B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L.!) Then came a 20 minute recess and... I fell asleep on the couch. That was pretty much it for me last night. In my defense it's not like Dressage keeps you hanging by the seat of your pants but I was disappointed that I missed so many of the tests especially Becky Holder's and Can't Fire Me's (currently) 2nd place test. I'm going to try and take a short nap this afternoon and see if I can't make it a little longer tonight and of course bring on the caffeine for Saturday night b/c I will be staying awake to watch cross country. Show jumping on Sunday evening and then maybe my life can get turned right side up again. But, I have a feeling I'm going to be feeling a little zombie-ish for the next few days.
Also a quick update on Angel. I got a note from my friend and she and her husband have decided that they are going to keep Angel (rechristened Angela) permanently! I couldn't have hoped for a better home for her!
And because she is just so dang cute here is yet another picture:
