Owl Side


Ballroom dance competition went splendidly yesterday - we placed second to fourth in most everything, with mostly seconds in the latin dances (not to mention hustle, which I rather learned on the spot.) And then there was a social afterwards, and I got to try out Viennese Waltz and Quickstep in a less competive environment. (Which was good as the heel of one foot caught the strap of the other foot and down I went - thunk!)

Ach, and my feet. I have calluses in many unexpected places. But so much fun. I'm definitely inspired to learn more and be better and kick some ballroom arse. Hee hee.

In other news, the Ravens got the house - yay! So if I stay here (looking highly likely), then I'll have an excellent place to live. They move-in anytime after April 17, so we'll have plenty of time to fix up the house before I'd head there in August.

And one side note: Apparently Foxe falls in the category of Kitten in that he is male and doesn't get squished to the side of the bed or toppled off it by an unconscious me during the night. Lucky for him, no? [grin]
