What a week! Remember how I complained that last week was boring? Well this week was the exact opposite. School was crazy busy, I trained two new clients (meganmichaeltraining.com!), taught piano lessons, and rehearsed with my dance partner two nights. I am tired just reliving what all went down and hope next week gives me a little more sleep- but the same amount of fun!
Friday after work, I rehearsed (for the second time!) with my dance partner for Dancing with the East Pennsboro Stars. Guys, he is sooooooo good. He went to Julliard. How the hell did I get so lucky to dance with someone who went to Julliard? Seriously. I am having the time of my life because I love, love, love, love, love to dance. Here are some of my notes from our session...
I was so tired from my busy week, I was in bed by 9:37 pm. I don't know how people go out on Friday nights! I am too tired from the week to do anything on a Friday but crash!
When I woke up Saturday morning, life was pretty good...
Look who came to cuddle me Saturday morning!
He loves his mommy! Or was he just hungry?
If you don't have pets, you are missing out in life. They are the sweetest little
lovers in the whole world!
Then my morning took a turn for the worse when I read this article... Minnesota Prosecutors Won't Relent on Child Endangerment Charges Against Mom for Medical Pot. I have so much to say about this issue that I touched on here, but it definitely warrants another blog post, so look for that in the near future... But for now, I will leave it at this:
Next on my "to do" list was one last BIG tempo run before my 10k on October 19th! I will be posting more in detail about it tomorrow, but here is the short story...
BAM! I think I am ready!
That night, we went to Geoff & Bree's house for a backyard fire pit double date! Unfortunately, we didn't take any pictures, which means it didn't happen. Just kidding- we had a blast and are so fortunate to have awesome friends!
Since I slept in so late on Sunday, by the time I woke up, Kristina has already started her marathon on the West Coast! I immediately got online and signed up to track her. Then I went on a relaxing run in the new crisp, fall weather that decided to arrive this weekend. I thought about Kristina during my run and was hoping she could feel all of my positive thoughts I was sending her way!
That afternoon, I totally geeked out because I got to rehearse for Dancing with the East Pennsboro Stars at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet's studio in Carlisle. A real dance studio with huge mirrors and a sprung floor. I was also nervous to do our dance in front of mirrors for the first time. That meant I was going to have to see how ridiculous I looked paired up with a Julliard trained dancer. At least
we I have a little over a month to keep rehearsing and getting better!
Have you ever taken dance lessons?
