desperately needed quiet day.....son is sleeping in from a late night (went to a law firm open house to beg for Summer internship)...dtr is headed to her BF's for a few days...love them, but they just make alot of extra work and mess and generally complicate things...including but not limited to clogging nearly every sink and toilet in the house (must you use a roll of TP per dump, and shave your beard over the sink?).... using 25 glasses a day in spite of the plastic cups that i bought(glad they love the environment...love me too), and various other complexities that involve juggling cars, schedules, dietary restrictions, general slovenliness...the arrival of all of their clothing(dirty)...so I love them but it is nice to have a few hours to catch my breath and knock back some of the filth before the next round begins....which will include baking...and Idon't think I need to tell you what that is going to mean for the kitchen...but, for now, there is peace
I fell on street yesterday and got hurt! today we are supposed to do a showcase, those people invited us confirmed many times before and paid us in advance, it is definitely not good for them to be short of 2 show dances for their program in such short notice, and not good for me to dance in pain I can't lift my right arm now, we have 2 lifts in waltz and Tango, all lifts requires my right arm to place over head to keep in balance, if I'm out of balance because of pain, can injure DP too luckily one of DP's pro-am ladies is willing to replace me to perform tonight and they were nice enough willing to accept a pro-am showcase to replace a pro showcase without asking any part of refund. This student is wonderful, when I told her if they don't ask for refund, she can have my share of show income (50%) since she's doing us a huge favor. This is her first time in life got paid for doing show. However she said she is glad to let me keep this money for any possible medical bills, she's so great and appreciate any opportunities to perform to gain experience. I gave her a free lesson. I feel so grateful to know her, she is a doctor, today she is supposed to be working, and she plans to leave work earlier to meet us for a final rehearsal for show. She will do her own show routine, the ones she always perform at comps, I'm not gonna to burden her for doing my show routine which is more difficult in such short notice. She will be doing very well tonight! I will still be there for her and showing support at the party.
I'm very sorry to hear that you were injured, but sounds like everything else worked out well in the end. How did the show turn out? Have they performed yet? I wasn't sure when they were scheduled. And more importantly, how is your arm?
standard waltz with my pro....dare I say it? I may enjoy it more than smooth (but I will deny it if I am reported)....regardless, it simply melts away the rest of the crap in life...and for a moment, just leaves the yum...F is not a poet...it is what it is
