30 January 2007
After a day of not getting much accomplished yesterday, today was kind of the opposite. Or at least it feels that way in comparison to how little I’ve gotten done throughout the whole rest of this month. I can hardly believe January is almost over.
I dealt with email, cleaned my desk a bit, prepared packages for mailing, did some sewing and some organization in the workshop, dealt with the a/c/heat repair-guy, ate breakfast and lunch, and even fit in some training time with the dogs. I talked to my mother–a couple of times, actually, and to Rick, and to Kelly–all rather lengthy phone calls. And to top it all off, I was on time for dance class!
I had to be on time, really. It was dress rehearsal night. We have a performance on Friday night–a little dance festival called Diffusion. That’s about all I know, other than that it’s happening in Fort Worth! Great for me, but hard for the other girls in the company. Anyway, tonight was our dress rehearsal for the two numbers we’re doing on Friday. I’m only dancing in one of them, because my schedule has just not allowed me to be at enough classes during the fall and winter, to learn the newest routine. This photo is of the girls in an early moment of that new number. It looks good, and I look forward to learning it.
I have to make a big decision about that, too. The next performance is on the second Saturday of Scarborough. I had already decided NOT to do the show when we thought it was on opening Saturday. Now, it’s a week later, and I have to decide if the stress and unhappiness of last year’s experience came from the fact that it was opening weekend, or if it came from the fact that it’s just darn hard to leave in the middle of a faire day. Kyle is willing to support whatever decision I make. And I have to make that decision before next Tuesday night!<sigh>
