I had a fantastic timeline dancing last night. I danced so much, and just got lost in the music. I also wrote down a bunch of dances so that, hopefully, I can teach my friends a few new dances. I also found one of the advance dancers who has all of the dances at this club written down. He agreed to email them to me, so hopefully I can get the steps to all of the dances. Additionally, I got to dance several couples dances, But my partner was a little too amorous for me. It would be ideal if I could find a game man who wanted a female dance partner. Anna disconcerting note, my girlfriend who went line dancing with me is very depressed. She lost both of her parents within 30 days, and she is struggling to cope. She's also going through menopause, so she is getting a triple whammy. I also had a fantastic day with my daughter yesterday, where we went shopping, a good food, did some more shopping, painted pottery, and talk to bunch. As it is my nature, I am worrying about her so much for the upcoming school year. I know that this is her journey to look lead, but I still worry. The therapist strongly suggested that she get set up with the therapist out of school. She has a lot of anxiety over the school year, and she does not seem to have any friends. She keeps asking me to move closer to Champaign, and I am seriously considering an interview with my employer for a different position where I would have a larger territory that would cover where I live currently and my daughter's school. Since my mom lives down where my daughter at school, I could, "kill two birds with one stone. "Wow! That's a lot to get off my chest, since that would be a big change. Life goes forward. Period. Work, more work, and helping my daughter get ready to move to college. What's up with everyone else?

Whew, lots going on w/ you!  I'm glad you've kept up the line dancing. It seems like something you really love doing and it's active.  Maybe you need to find a gay partner? That seems to be the best of both worlds.  I'm not sure how you'd go about finding someone, though!  I'm really glad to hear your daughter and therapist are planning for her year. Strategies can make all the difference.  Good luck if you decide to change jobs. It does sound like you could use a change from your current position!

I'm teaching step this morning and then have a couple of clients.  My son leaves tomorrow so I'm thinking we should do something special for dinner tonight but I've been making something special every day as it is.  I'm baked goods out.  Speaking of which, I'm thinking it might be fun for me to take a part time job as a baking/pastry assistant. I see quite a few of them listed but it's a question of whether I 1) want to take up free time to do that and 2) can deal w/ all those sweets w/out overindulging. It would be really fun, though!

I'm not sure what that blanlk reply was but I posted that message and got the blank. Then it worked. LOL, the definition of insanity doesn't work here on iVillage because the same action gets you different results!

Fresh, that is good to hear that you enjoyed your line dancing class so much. I went to an Insanity class last night and had a great time. I think I'm done with cross-fit for a while again. It has gotten too difficult and after having such a good time in Insanity, I have to ask myself why I am doing it.

My check engine light is on in my car so I need to get that looked at today. Ugg. I hate dealing with vehicle issues.

It is going to be very hot today so I'll probably wait until later tonight then get out and do a few miles.

I much prefer Insanity type movements over Crossfit type, too. I love crazy hard cardio. 

I'm with you on car repairs, too. As someone said, it's like entering the service station w/ a blank check.  

How are your grandbabies, btw?  Are you enjoying them (dumb question).

lol Jean,  I had all three of them for just a very short time on Tuesday and I kept trying to refresh my memory of how I managed it all by myself years ago. I was never so thankful to see my teenage daughter come through the door from dance class. lol

London (2.5) is now up on her feet and able to get into anything... and she gets into everything!

Jackson (8 weeks) is a fussy little guy. He wants to be held all the time.

Milan (4 weeks) is very quiet. She only cries when she is wet or hungry. Even when her cousin, Jackson, was crying like there was no tomorrow, she just quietly looked around and watched him. Believe it or not, she is the one that made me the most nervous because she was "too" quiet.
