Thankful Thursdays!

Can you even believe that it is Thursday already?!? It seems that this week is flying by.
  • A weekend with nothing planned - our room needs some attention.
  • Reconnecting with friends - been missing some people lately and I got to spend some time with one of them last night
  • Having leftovers so I can not cook for a few nights.
  • Getting compliments for something that is only partially in my control.
  • Family - all of it
  • Snow days - working where I do, we NEVER get snow days. Well Tuesday was an exception. Wish I had done more with it.... but ..... ehh.

Thankful Thursdays!

  • Thursdays - I know there is only one day left of the workweek.
  • Chapstick - If you know me then you know that I could not actually live my life without it.
  • Books - I love being able to become absorbed into a story. Fact or fiction doesn't matter to me as long as its a good read.

Hmm, not feeling so thankful today I guess. My list is pretty short.

What are you thankful for?

Tis the Season

I haven't written much about dance yet in this blog. So I'll give you the low down. I'm a Scottish Highland Dance teacher. It's the one job of my three that I love. I'm not as confident in it as I should be, but the comes with putting myself out there and getting the experience that I need. I teach one night a week for three hours. Currently, I have three students but it seems to fluctuate a lot. In the last few years I have gone from 5 to 3 to 4 and now back to 3. I would eventually like to make this my main source of income and be able to stay at home with my future babies.

Anyhow, this is a picture of my most advanced student and myself. We do a few shows a year around town and my younger student is just starting her third year of competition. This weekend is a workshop for dancers and teachers. I usually like to have at least 2 dance classes prior to these workshops and competitions devoted to prepping my younger students. I don't like them going into a workshop without us having talked about and reviewed each dance in the past two weeks. Alas, class had to be cancelled last night, due to weather. :( No second day of review for my little one attending the workshop with me this weekend. This is what February and March bring on Tuesdays though. Cancelled dance class. Why is it that the weather always seems to come on Tuesdays?

Thankful Thursdays!

It's Thursday, almost time to head home for the day. Let's see what I'm thankful for today.

  • Siblings that have jobs and siblings that are looking diligently for jobs.
  • My mom - it's nice to have a movie watching buddy now that my husband is back into school full swing.
  • My dad - he's is a little gruff sometimes, but so ready to help when necessary.
  • Mary Kay products - 100% satisfaction guarantee, let me tell you how many products I have given back to my sister lately.
  • Sweaters - I love that you can wear a sweater and not always have to put something over your cute top when your cold.
  • Friends who are inspirations - I have a friend who has a one year old and is doing an amazing job parenting , as far as I can tell. I hope that when it is my turn, I will be half as motivated and wonderful for my child as she is.
  • Love - what would this world be like without it!

What are you thankful for?
