SATURDAY:
7:15--Up early to watch the wonderful and gorgeous j_alex dance smooth, then standard!!!

7:45-10:15ish--She dances, I watch. She does great! I can't believe this is her first standard comp.

12:30--Boyko appointment. They are running a bit late, so it actually winds up being more like 12:50ish. I don't dance until 3:30, so this is fine.

3:30--COMPETITION TIME!
1st (out of 2) in my open silver.
3rd (out of 5--including top national competitor in my age group!) in open gold. I will take that!!! Pleased.
3rd (out of 6) in open scholarship. YAY!!!!!!
My teacher to me: "You held your own." That counts as a compliment!

Look through photos that j_alex generously stayed to take. :)

7:30--Back for the evening session, which was AMAZING! Many top amateur latin competitors were in the house. Really enjoyed that.

Might have stayed up until 2:30 AM. Oops! (The session didn't end until after 1 AM, so....)

sigh...where to start....monday/today

arrive at work to see that a woman who has disrupted my classes for months/years has shown up bright and early to let my boss know about my having finally opened a can of whoopa$$ on her this weekend...lovely....you can kvetch for years on end to me about others, but the minute I shut it down you have to take that to someone else...good luck with that sweetie pie...gratefully both of the bosses know that I am diplomatic and have a long fuse that if I open a can of whoop, it is long overdue...but the whole thing is seriously exhausting....teach 4 classes...have exactly no time to pump gas, feed pets, pack clothes and get to indy...then...wait for it...discover half way into the trip that my wallet is missing....text pro...no answers...drive home... frantically back track....takes too long to find it so no lessons today after missing 5 of the weeks since usdc ...thankfully my pro doesn't sound like he wants to throttle me...so okay...better than expected...going to bed...warn dh that I love him but he can make his own dinner...he can wake me up for only one reason...we will see...at any rate, not sure when I stepped into this tar pit....but, enough already.....

@fascination--While that does sound like a sucktastic day (and I can relate to the leaving one's wallet story all too well), I'm just relieved to hear that the bad news doesn't have anything to do with any family members, esp not The Cutest One! I hope the rest of the week makes this Mondayish Monday a distant memory.

@Purr--We both really liked it! On a side note, I was also thrilled that Riordan chose to make one of the main characters gay. Who is your favorite of the demi-gods in this series? Mine is Leo.

Let's try this again. I tried to reply to ccm, but it didn't work right.

Currently, my favorite character in the series is Hazel. She didn't start out as my favorite character - Leo was. Hazel grew on me through the last book, especially after her interaction with Hecate. So besides being a child of Pluto, Hazel can channel the power of the mist, like Hecate. That's something. It's interesting that her boyfriend, Frank, also has the powers of 2 gods. He's a child of Mars, but he also has the ability to morph into animals through the blessing of Poseiden.

I'm not having a warm and fuzzy feeling that Nico is going to make it through the end of the series. Somehow, I think the "oath to keep with a final breath" is about him.

drive to indy...lessons....didn't die of them...well enough then...drive home and teach spin which included an improvement in attitudes of persons formerly mentioned as PITAS...home for dinner and wine...staff meeting...anal about whether or not I spoke too much there...note to self; do not have wine for dinner now that staff meetings are in the evening...but, all in all, an okay turnout for a day I was dreading on both fronts....
