    Up early, head off to pre-op with dh.
    oh really? going to happen in his room? not the or? GREAT, he smiles.
    Meet with Dr.
    Head off to waiting room.
    Dr. comes in, cardio-conversion failed - shocked his heart 3 x.
    Advice - 30 more days on the drugs, try again.
    To say DH is disappointed is an understatement - he sleeps on and off at home most of day.
    Up early the next day, note to self pissy Norwegian DH is "back" - fed up with everything - he exercises, rides his bike, helps me clean house,
    I take him to new Chiropractor for us - we both get adjusted - he was GREAT!
    Learn from Chiro's wife - she also has A-Fib - DH and her talk..
    DH feels better than he has in months (his back and such).
    We go to car show - he's realizing the order of "no exercise" has cost him oodles in walking and weight control.
    AHHHHHH THERE HE IS,,,back on track and still in A-Fib. Good for you Babe!

    sat.....can't remember when I got up, but had coffee and made a grocery list for dh and a "to-do" list for the weekend...drive to hot yoga.....zomg...very hot in there and a tough class to boot....think I lost more water there than during childbirth...take about 2 hours to return to a normal state of being....finish watching yoga online cert. then spend some time training on power pump dvds for the new schedule next week....these two things soak up the bulk of my day....practice......cook turkey tacos...sit outside by chimnea for a bit then watch a 2 1/2 hour documentary on Bob Marley...which was fascinating...also, dtr calls to say she may have found "the dress" (a white Reem Acra with a blush under bodice, illusion neckline, layered tulle ballgown)...I never would have envisioned that for her, but she is so tiny that it is the only sort of style that looks light and airy on her and makes her face light up....she and her beau also have a food tasting at the end of the month so we may be in pretty darned good shape by the end of this summer...I really like this vendor and the food plan...it will be half upscale comfort food for the relatives who are accustomed to a Polish sit down dinner, and half Indian for the vegetarians in the crowd....we have the church and the museum venues secured, we have the decor planned and a deposit down there....I have my dress, it seems like she may have found hers, and since they have selected the the food vendor and most of the menu, they just need to do some tastings and we need to pay the deposit...if we can knock out the lighting vendor(venue has an exclusive vendor for the lighting who works with the florist/decor people and we want uplighting in at least two of her colors), the dj(wish they would get a band, but not my wedding), and the photographer (these venues are too awesome to just trust that sort of thing to chance), we will be in pretty good shape...we want to get all of that done before this Summer b/c her fiance has an internship out of town this Summer, and she is completely unavailable during marching band season....I am also relieved because we have navigated a difficult conversation with her finances' mom to inquire about rehearsal dinner, and we have also got some pretty solid plans for showers...I am trying to avoid the last minute mayhem....so far, so good :)

    If the wedding were fall 2014, I'd say you were pretty well avoiding last minute mayhem. Fall 2015? I nominate you for Mad Planning Skilz Queen.

    Ignored my 6am RunKeeper alert and slept until 8:30. It's been a busy few weeks, and I really needed it.
    9:30-11 Aerial Silks at the studio. Haven't done this in a while, but made some progress due to things I've been working on in the meantime.
    Home to change, quick smoothie.
    Youngest DD broke a strap on her changing leotard at Fri night rehearsal, so out to find replacement. Empty spot in the first shop I tried, so this took much longer than it should have.

    Funny -- the sales clerk was amused at how happy I was to find the silly straps. Explained it was for a leotard for show that night. She asked which ballet company I was with. Bc I totally look like a ballerina?!? LOLZ

    Home, wrestled fighting daughters down for a nap.
    Fed youngest DD, did her hair, dropped her off at the theatre.
    Met DH, other kids, ILs and family friends for dinner.
    8pm local ballet company's "The Little Mermaid." Youngest was hilarious as coral reef -- such a ham!
    10:30 home, kiddos to bed
    10:45 message from cousin in Australia about ailing uncle. Call my mother to make sure she's heard, luckily she was still awake!
    11:30 nighty night!

    Thanks, but I think I'm rather too curvy for that!

    I *was* told "too much ballet and ballroom!" while working on Rhythm with a visiting coach last summer...

    No way! You are beautifully slender and as pretty or prettier than any ballerina I've ever met. Own it, girl! I'd kill to have your figure. :)

    I got so depressed when Teach disappeared for 3 weeks' recuperation from a health issue, I can't really say what's happened for the past month. But I've been fantastically busy, working, going to theater, dealing with family and their Issues, dealing with friends and their Issues, dealing with the X and his Issues, and finally getting back to the studio. Since April 8, I've been home 3 nights. That's effing busy. So I feel numb. But I've seen some great theater.

    Back to studio has been bliss. And useful. How weird is *that*.

    Cruised through various voluntering opportunities with DH,
    Westside German Shepard "no kill" rescue, GreatDane Rescue, Volunteers In National Parks, Plant A Row, and our very favorite Operation Homefront - while he also figures out what path to take with the American Legion.
    We discuss the potential - of putting on a Dance, of sorts, to donate to Operation Homefront.
    DH motors down to our business - while I garden (AHHH - feels good after the rain).
    Go to park walk 3 miles - darn Fit Bit is keeping me honest - developing plan to start running again.
    Head off to lesson with Pro.
    Watch the bridge burn - on the 15 fwy - which cancels my plans to take stepdad to cardio Doctor. Had to laugh, it could only happen to me.
    DH comes home and heads straight to his bike. Rides - already lost 5 pounds, I'm pretty sure I found it.
    Trader Joe's, pick up marinated sirloin steak - Way Way good - DH says "buy more, let's freeze it"ok....my DH NEVER says things like that.
    Outside to visit with neighbors - talk to pool contractor - EXCITED! to fix/repair and modernize our pool.
    Neighbors ask about our new rooftop vents that replaced those ancient whirlybird turbine thingys, yes these work better and for the first time in 15 years I'm not busting a sweat when the house heats up from the sun. amazing.
    Receive cards and gifts from Oregondaughter and granddaughter - ahhhhhhhh - sweet way to end the day.
