All I Want For Christmas…

…is a real good tan!  Plus, I’m disappointed at how Christmas is cancelled due to covid.  So I’m headed to California with Kavik for the rest of 2020; my daughter Katie will be driving cross-country with me to meet her cousins for the first time!  It should be a pretty exciting 4-day trip.  We’ll be in Iowa tonight, Colorado…

Covid Christmas Cheer

This husky knows it’s Covid who stole Christmas this year; it’s affecting more and more people every day.  Still, things could always be worse.  We can keep our sanity if we intentionally try to keep a positive outlook.  Although the Christmas holidays will probably mirror Thanksgiving – a shadow of the usual – I’m trying to look on…

Covid Changes

Today’s new regulations from our governor have caused me to revise some of the DWJ schedule. Park Districts have closed for a minimum of the next two weeks, so those classes are temporarily (hopefully) cancelled.  They will be re-evaluated then. The following in-person classes (taught by Yours Truly) have been CANCELLED thru at least the end of December,…

It Was Only A Year Ago

Good morning! Hard to believe that this time last year I announced my plans to move to Louisville in the summer of 2020.  Was it only a year ago?  Covid sure changed the world quickly; that meeting with everyone in my basement seems like it happened a lifetime ago.  And yet this week marks my last week dancing…

Welcome to November!

Welcome to November!  Who would’ve thought it would be here so quickly?  I am feeling more and more anxious about my upcoming move by the day – change is fun, but scary too – but since I am feeling a time crunch, hopefully that will help me be more concise.  I think I inherited Daddy’s ability to be…

Dance With Janet AND Ray

I had a dance-filled weekend filming with Ray these past few days.  Creating video lessons is a huge job, but it’s our kind of work!  Not only did we tackle couples lessons, but we recorded three Dance-Along videos to the ENTIRE Beginner 1 curriculum.  I’ve had repeated requests for a digital (or DVD) product where the dances taught…

10 Days of Dances

Welcome to your Dose of Dancing; a diversion from the heavy news bombarding us from all sides.  I’m glad I’ve continued dancing during covid; it’s kept me sane and at least somewhat focused.  Although dancing together looks a lot different than it used to, I encourage you to keep it up, for the same reasons.  And if you…

A Busy Few Days

What a week!   Not only did I celebrate a birthday this past weekend, but our condo went under contract as well!  It has been a busy, busy few days, and a lot of arrangements have been made.  I’ll be moving in with a dance friend in the southern Chicagoland suburbs in mid-November.  It looks like very few in-person classes…
