    I painted mine before DCDI and they still look neat enough, so I'm leaving them.

    I was just sitting here wondering how important it can really be to have long finger nails. Lol.

    How much, exactly, do you think we can get away with? ;)

    I'm feeling a sour throat too, not a good feeling before OSB, guess I'm too tired and really need to catch some sleep before catching my flight. Funny I usually don't lose sleep before comp, I always feel don't get enough sleep;) I'm even able to manage to take a nap on the table with my hair updo. Lol.

    New dress came too long, arhhhh !!!! Can't wear for OSB! Guess I'll just wear my pink feather or yellow/white, still can't decide. Guess if my luggage has extra room, I'll take all my dresses and decide very last min

    Started tanning for Nashville StarZ last night, and I'm having lunch with the guy today. Ah, the smell of self-tanner in the morning...it's a good thing he's a former bodybuilder and so understands the tanning insanity!

    Competition coming up this weekend, and after lesson and practice last weekend, I was feeling fine. Just wanted to run everything a few times every day this week to keep building the stamina and muscle memory. But no, our perennial struggles to find practice space continue, and my dreams of daily practice were cruelly crushed. Sooo frustrating to want to give our dancing the time it needs and simply not be allowed to. Plus, my knee is feeling weird. AAAAH!
