Oh, I forgot to mention that on the way to the dress rehersal, my husband calls me to tell me that he totalled his car in an accident on his way home. Thankfully, he and everyone else involved was not hurt, but his car is pretty much toast.
We were up and at 'em for basketball at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. I managed to squeak in 3.2 miles on the track while Manimal had his basketball. I ran 2 miles and then did 1 mile of alternating laps of sprint then jog. I never sprint and I probably should do it more because I was sore yesterday and still sore today! One fun thing--there were two guys doing some sort of physical fitness test for police or coast guard on the track with me. I had already done one mile and then they joined me. I was ahead of one the whole time (hee hee). The other started out fast but by the end of his first mile and my second mile, I had lapped him and was working on lapping him a second time. (heehee) Chicked at the track!
We had two shows of The Tap Nutcracker on Saturday. The show was really great! Princess was a mouse and a bon-bon. Here is a pic of her dance group as mice. Princess is on the right end in the back.
Patiently waiting for face glitter!
So far this is my favorite show. I love that the older girls dance with the younger girls. Obviously, they do pieces by themselves, but some scenes have 2 or 3 different levels of dance all tapping together. And you know what a treat it is for younger students of anything to work with the older students. I can't wait to get the DVD!
The last act of our weekend was taking our Girl Scout troop to Boston to see the Rockettes Christmas Show at the Wang Theater. That was a great show as well. It was a long day--3 hour drive each way! but we survived it and had a great time. Thank you Girl Scouts for the discounted tickets. It made up for the $30 parking fee. Don't I love Boston! :) $30 parking, $5 coffee, buying a token to 'unlock' the bathroom... I so miss Boston in some ways, and in some ways I don't miss it at all.
No Christmas shopping done at all this weekend. Eek. Here's to hoping that I get some gifts purchased.
How's your shopping going?
Any Nutcracker/Rockettes shows in your future?
Chick any men lately?
