I am pretty excited. Next weekend I am taking my daughter to High School Musical on Ice. No seriously, I am excited. I think it will be cool and fun. My sister and her daughter (same age as my daughter and best friend, along with being cousins) are going too. I will be sure to fill you in :)
Then, the 2nd weekend in December my daughter is performing with our local professional dance company in the Nutcracker. I LOVE THE NUTCRACKER!!!!!!!! I have been going for years and I am thrilled beyond words that she is dancing in it. Since she is nine, she doesn't have a major part, but SHE IS DANCING IN THE NUTCRACKER! She is in the Waltz of the Flowers in Act II. Which the song happens to be one of my favorites in the ballet. Yes, I have the Nutcracker CD that I play at Christmas (nerd, I know... can't help it).
Then, December 30th, my best friend and her daughter (again, my daughter and her daughter are very good friends and dance at the same dance studio) and we are taking them to the Rockettes Christmas Show (yes, $131 dollars for our TWO tickets...HOLY CRAP!).
Okay, yes I do have 2 teenage boys. No, I don't neglect them, as this post may sound. It just so happens that all this stuff is just happening at once. So You Think You Can Dance tour, the HSM on Ice, Nutcracker, Rockettes, I mean I can't help it's all at once. My pocketbook isn't thrilled about it, either. BELIEVE ME! THIS is why I work, THIS is what gets my a** out of bed in the morning and gets me to work. So, once our refi goes through on the house, Christmas is over and all of our events, I am going to work hard on figuring out a way to stay home ;) Oh and lose weight.
