I Would Post Something, But…

It’s 8:00 am on a Sunday morning. If it weren’t for the toddler in our lives, I wouldn’t acknowledge that this hour even exists. Hell, I barely acknowledge it now. I just feed him and curl up to die on the couch while he uses me as a jungle gym typically.
Today he’s not even here. He spent the night with his “Lala” and Grandpa last night. That in and of itself is an exciting tale, one with drama, heroism, and monsters. And bowling… but again, none of this is important right now.
So why am I up rambling at this hour? Because in a short while I will be heading out to the Grapevine Convention Center to help them set up for today’s show. Tonight is the Christmas Hafla.
I will be performing in both the 3:00 show and the 5:00 show. My solo and Mulit-Cultural Team piece will both be in the 5:00 show. Class piece is sometime after 3.
Tickets at the door are something like $12 I think. The whole thing kicks off at 1:00.
So really, that’s it. Just wanted to pimp the show out really quick before I go and die.
To put a nice little cherry on top of all of this? I seem to be sick. My brain is trying to leak out my nose. Whenever I sneeze it tried to take the short route out my ears. It’s lovely. I’m going to go drug myself so I’m extra perky for my performance this afternoon (P.S. almost every drug in the world puts me to sleep. Seriously, it’s kind of annoying).
See you all there, unless you don’t live in Texas, then lord only knows when I’ll see you.


This Year in Fail

Last year I actually put together a list of new years resolutions.  I know, silly.  I really don’t like them, but I manage to do one almost every year with every intention to follow through.  I do try to come up with stuff that’s actually attainable, but it’s still easy to let yourself down to some degree.  So here is my rundown of my success for the year.  I know I still have a month left, but I fail to see how any of these can be accomplished in 30 days.

– Go to yoga more regularly.  I’ve been really having issues getting back into the habit. I was really good about this one.  Up until October I went almost religiously.  But due to medical and personal issues, I have had problems going for the last couple of months.
– Change my eating habits.  This one is already in process, I just need to stick to it. I’ve mostly stuck to it, but not as well as I probably should have.  It’s just so easy to run and grab fast food when you’re busy with a two year old.  But for the most part I try to be a good girl.
– Work on feeling better about my body.  Do we see a theme here? I have no idea how successful I was with this.  My body has been strange and weight seems to be yo-yoing.  My main concern is the tummy that Ashton left behind.  It’s been two years and I still can’t seem to work any of it off.
– Come to terms with the Damsels, and strive to help make them better.  I think there may be some changes that need to be made, not just talked about.  And a few very serious conversations need to be had.  I’m not looking forward to this one. We have completely revamped the Damsels, and have taken most of the year off to work on various stuff.  This is one resolution that has been done, and is still in progress.
– Dance better, if I can.  I need to strive to be more creative in my choreography. I try.  I think my routines are starting to look… routine.  I seem to be in a rut as far as dancing goes.  But I’ve joined the Multicultural Team at the studio, so I think that will help me with different styles.
– Dance at a nursing home event.  I need to know when they are.  I’ve never actually done one. I still haven’t done one.  I never know when they are.
– Hang out with more than just three or four friends all the time.  I love these people dearly, but we have friends that we’ve not seen in a long time.  I think it may be time to try and strengthen those connections. We’ve tried, but haven’t been very good about this.  All of our socializing have been with the same group of friends.  But we have seen a few other friends this year.
– I would like to try and be pregnant at the end of this year.  Don’t know exactly when we’ll start trying, but some time and the end of this year. Unless I get pregnant this month, this one is down the drain.  This was my biggie, and I really was hoping to be pregnant by now.  I hoped that the second pregnancy would be easier than the first, but we discovered that I had to be medicated again just to have a regular cycle.  This is a major factor in any mild depression I’ve been feeling lately.
– I think I would like to make a non-holiday visit up to Oklahoma to see everyone. Mom and I seem to be making a yearly summer visit up there with Ashton.
– Go camping without going to a Ren Faire.  I’ve wanted to go camping for the sake of camping for ages. Yeah… no.  I only went to one Ren Faire this year where I camped anyway.  Someday…

So that’s my year end success rate.  I’m sure I’ll put up my new year resolutions within the first week of 2009, but for now I have no idea what those might be.
