Wait...Didn't I Just Do This?

So I'm still working on recovering from my last busy weekend. And here I am facing yet another busy weekend. Tonight I have work. Which is where I am right now. Then I get to go home and sleep. Then I have dance rehearsal for 3 hours to hopefully work on all the dances that still need a little bit of help. Although I do have to say that the kids are doing an awesome job! I'm very happy and impressed with all of them. It's been tons of fun working with them and being able to watch them grow and put together the show. This weekend will be the last time that we have strictly a "Dance" rehearsal. From Sunday on we will just be running things with acting, singing and dancing all together. So yeah. Should be fun times tomorrow. So then I'm meeting with my friend Gail to have our dinner that we weren't able to have last week. So that will be fun. Then I get to work again tomorrow night! Yay!

Sunday I'll have a short dance rehearsal with Snoopy herself since I'm not working with her on her solo dances at all tomorrow. So I'll meet with her for an hour and then we have rehearsal with everyone else. More fun times! Then I'm off Sunday night. I don't have any plans as of yet, but that could always change with my crazy life right now.

So fun news! I went into the unior Theatre office on I think Wednesday and Daniel, who's kinda in charge of producing all the shows and has another more official job title that I can never really remember, says "Hey! I have a question for you." And I respond "I have an answer for you." "How would you like to choreograph for the next show 'Aesop's Falables'?" "Umm...Yeah! I'd love to!" "Cool! I'll let the director know." "Ok!" So yeah, I'm already lined up to choreograph for the next show at Junior Theatre! Yay! Apparently they like what they see with Snoopy! That's always a comforting thing to know. So yeah, that's all in Sara-land for now. I hope you are all doing well!

Busy Weekend

I feel kinda bad that I don't update too often. However, I've realized why I wait so long between posts. During the week when I'm at my day job I sit in front of a computer all day and answer phones and things. So by the time I get home I'm kinda done looking at a computer for any reason. So it's hard to even sit down and read blogs or write my own. But I'm hoping to get better about it.

On the nights that I work at the hotel, number one, I'm allowed on the internet, so I'm able to read and stuff while at work, when I need to be looking at a computer screen anyway. And 2 I have the time and need something to do to help keep me awake. Blogging is definitely something that helps me stay awake. So that is the time that I tend to write blogs and catch up on everyone else's lives.

So here I am, standing behind the desk at work. This was kind of a hectic weekend. The nice thing was that on Saturday I got to go to the Chiropractor!!! Yay! I've been needing to get my back and neck adjusted for a long time now. So I'm super excited and much more comfortable now that I was able to go and do that. Then I had rehearsal. Actually between my Chiropractor appt and rehearsal I took myself out to breakfast and while I ate I did some more choreographing. I felt kinda bad for my waitress cause I had a headphone in one ear and she felt like she was interrupting everytime she walked by. Which she wasn't, but I could tell she felt bad everytime. Poor thing.

So yeah, then came rehearsal which went really well. All the dances are starting to really come together and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. So that's exciting. And the numbers I worked on this weekend are the last ones that we really needed hard core dancing for. So that's good. I also had rehearsal today, but I'm getting ahead of myself.

I worked at the hotel last night, which is always fun. But I discovered after sleeping some that I might have overdone it a little at rehearsal. I was very, very sore. It's been a while since I full out danced like that. And I didn't really take the time to stretch or anything. So bad on my part. I did better today and remembered to kinda stretch out some before jumping into it. So I hopefully won't be too sore. So yeah, after rehearsal today I went over to my friend Gail's house for a while. It was nice because I hadn't seen Gail in a while. We also have plans to have dinner next weekend. So we get the chance to just talk to eachother. Cause tonight we were with her family, which was also fun, don't get me wrong. I love hanging out with her family, but it will also be nice to just get the chance to talk. And as I said before I am now back at work.

So yeah, amazing weekend, but definitely busy. I'll be so excited when I get to back to sleep finally on Monday. I hope everyone is well! Have a great week!

The Wedding and Other Info

Now I would have some pictures to show you all of the chapel however I have somehow lost my camera. It is somewhere in my apartment, but for the life of me I am unable to remember or find where exactly that place is. However, eventually I will be able to get pictures from Greg, my boyfriend since we used his camera to take pictures. But for right now unfortunately, I'll just have to tell you all about it.

The wedding was absolutely beautiful. Yeah, that's pretty much all I can say. It was beautiful. And very meaningful. They had lots of friends and family involved and it was just obviously very meaningful to them, which was nice.

So I know I said I was very nervous. Well, really, I shouldn't have worried. I got along just fine with all of Greg's friends. I still haven't heard their verdict of me, but I'm hoping that they liked me too. But we all had a pretty good time. The reception was in the reception area of the Figge Art Museum. Ha! I just noticed that I used the word reception twice in the last sentence. I hope I didn't confuse you! But yeah, so it was also incredibly beautiful. There was a very delicious buffet and an open bar. It was very, very nice and tons of fun. There was lots of dancing and merriment to be had. So yeah, fun times. Ummm. I'm not really sure what else to say about that.

So now for the "other info". My mother has requested information about how I met my boyfriend. Cause I kinda sprung that information on her. Greg and I met at Playcrafter's when we were doing "Promises, Promises". And we just kinda hit it off. So we started hanging out every so often. We both went to plays together and went to shows that we were each in, or working on. We found that we really get along well and are very comfortable with each other, which is nice. So this last Tuesday, Greg officially asked me out and I of course said yes. So that's our story so far.

Ok, that's all for now. I hope everyone is doing well who reads this. Thankfully the weather warmed up this weekend. So we're now sitting comfortably in the 20s which feels incredibly warm after our like 40 below 0 wind chills last week. And as I type it is lightly snowing, yet again. God Bless!

An Overdue Update

Really there isn't that much to update. The only new thing that's really going on in my life right now is the fact that I am choreographing for the Davenport Junior Theatre's production of "Snoopy". It's actually been tons of fun coming up with dances and teaching them to the kids in the show. Although I do have to say that I'm still having issues with the last song of the show. I really don't want it to be too cheesy, but I'm afraid that it might turn out that way because what I have in mind is kinda cheesy. So that's very, very frustrating. But other than that song everything looks really good so far. I'm really proud of the kids. They are picking everything up really well and it's looking really good. At least from a dance perspective, since that's my area of focus.

Other than that I'm still working at both jobs and still enjoying them very much. Which is good. My animals haven't been doing anything too crazy lately, so nothing to report on that end either.

Tomorrow, or today rather I get to attend a wedding at Augustana. I've not been to the Augustana chapel, but I've heard that it is a very, very pretty chapel. So that's kind of exciting. Although I am a little nervous because I actually don't really know anyone who's going to be at the wedding. My boyfriend is in the wedding and they are all friends of his from college. So we'll see how it goes. Hopefully everyone will be so focused on the couple getting married that I can be kinda inconspicuous. We'll see though. I'll have to let you all know how it goes.

So yeah, that's all for now. I hope everyone reading this is in a warmer place than the Midwest right now. Our temperature is supposed to go up though, so hopefully it will stay above 0.
