    the sweets hold no appeal for me....but son wanted tacos...and that is proving to be problematic in terms of protion control

    Oh, heck, no. It took me way too much time to bake the stuff; ain't no way I'm throwing it out. I'll just have to run extra miles to get rid of the stuff that way...

    Nye party went from video games and a BBQ to a nerf war.

    I'm hiding in my room because I wasn't prepared for this and it's making me stressed.

    Oh well if it gets too bad I guess I'll just go to work a couple of hours early.

    went into the splits during lessons yesterday way too aggressively and tore my hamstring. WAY painful, hence no sleep tonight. Wonder if I can still dance on Thursday???

    ooooo...not good...and takes a long time to mend...but you should be fine as long as you keep it to regular moves....might require some advil and sports cream...but probably fine...we are seeing a lot of this at the gym now that it is cold...gotta warm before a stretch like that....so sorry...hug

    Whoa! Take care of that. Hamstring injuries are no fun, and they can be really bad news if it gets aggrevated.

    Thanks for the advice, guys. I do appreciate your concern. I actually had stretched and had danced for 1 1/2 hours prior to my mishap but rushed the move and didn't ensure I had my position correct before I splitted (ha, how's that for a verb?) Almost went to the ER last night, my leg hurt so badly, but figured there was nothing they could do for me that I wasn't already doing. Ortho appointment next Monday. Sigh. Feels somewhat better today as long as I don't make quick movements or try to straighten my leg. Daughter was teasing me for limping around and wanted to know if she needed to find a tree limb from which to carve me a cane. Thank goodness for all those bags of frozen peas I've been squirreling away - they make great ice packs. Now, what can I wear to the NYE party that will cover the compression bandage???

    Dancing for six hours on a dirty, slick concrete floor. stink.

    Dancing the day after to a group who calls themselves professionals, but A- act as if you've asked them to do something obscene with a large, dangerous and unpredictable animal on youtube instead of requesting a simple "slow it the hell down" on their (not viennese viennese) waltzes, and B- butcher horribly the lyrics to the most commonly-performed songs.

    Non-dancers who wake up one day and the idea to have a dance-related event pop into therir heads really need to be forced to read a primer on how to attract "real fancy dancers" to their "dance party", and how to accommodate the people they invite as well.

    Don't get me wrong- the evening was fun, but we were very determined after driving two hours to get to what was basically the same thing we would go to any night out of the week for four times the price.

    Having serious second thoughts about making a mostly black standard dress...like there will be rainbow stones, floats, and underskirts, but I'm just not sure :-/

    It's really cold outside... for the third day in a row :(

    -31C this morning, with a windchill of -40C... which is the point at which the F and C scales meet. Also known as bitterly, painfully, awfully, freaking cold!

    (On the upside, tomorrow's forecasted high is -17C. I'm pathetically excited about this.)

    Black with accent color or two -- OK. Rainbow.... you are correct in being very very careful about it. The few that I've seen were noticeable on the floor in a BAD way. However, they were rainbow *extreme*.

    Whine: tore a contact lens three times in one month. WTH.

    My tablet went into the manufacturer for repair on the headphone jack in mid december. Fedex said it was supposed to be here today, but won't be here until monday, presumably because of the snowstorms in the east. Ugh.. #firstworldproblems

    Energy level is kaput, metabolism is reduced to a snail's pace, and my already slow resting heart rate is at a level that leads my physician to become alarmist. Sure enough, when the blood test came back he adjusted my thyroid dosage, and I hope like anything that the level builds quickly, because this fatigue is terrible. Oddly though, I don't feel cold.

    Oooh. Yes, that little "surprise" shot of color. Gown looks to be navy perhaps?
    I think navy or indigo, instead of black, with colored underskirts would be great with Lioness' bright hair.

    um. Whining thread. Yup. OK: fingernails were all the same length and I broke one. Grrr.

    Navy. Yes. Lioness, I think that would look amazing on you

    Oooh. Just like that, actually.

    Though, I'm reconsidering a dark coloured dress in general. Maybe bright purple or a teal/forest green. I'd love a green and black dress if I can find the fabric for it.

    Guess it's time to browse photos for inspiration.

    Today's whine...both shops I needed to go to closed at 4. Because my sleep schedule is still on drag shift mode and I didn't fall asleep until 8am, I woke up at 4.30pm. Whoops.
