Returning to Normal?

I’ve got to admit, dancing virtually is getting a little old.  I keep wondering when life is going to return to normal, and it’s a conscious effort to squash the fear that it may not for a long time…if ever.  Meeting with you in person is so helpful, isn’t it?  I’m glad we have that option again.  Like you,…

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!Here we go for another holiday during covid; let’s see how “normal” it can be!  I’m not holding my breath for a big party, but I am taking *most* of Monday off.  It’s good to know some organizations that are still working are closed for Labor Day, so I’ll take that little slice of…

So What’s The Difference?

I officially adopted Kavik yesterday, and he is adjusting very well.  We’re all getting along, and he and Nugget actually are starting to play together.  He follows me everywhere; it’s wonderful.  We had a little scare when he swallowed my sock, but now I know to limit his toys to nylabones, as he thinks anything softer is edible.  He’s…

Feeling Stressed?

Good morning! With so many things changing so often nowadays, sometimes I feel super stressed.  Having a dog resting at my feet helps take the edge off, though.  I’m glad I brought Kavik into my household, although I certainly didn’t plan on a Siberian puppy!  He’s spicing up life in a very NORMAL way, that’s for sure…and I…

Meet Kavik the Wolf Dog!

I took the plunge yesterday and brought in a new dog, which many have heard about already.  To say I’m picky about names is an understatement; I looked at about 3000 in all my areas of interest to find the perfect one!  Thank you for all your suggestions on Facebook.  As I type, he’s laying at my feet…

Refreshment For My Heart

With all the changes going on in the world today, I can’t emphasize enough the importance of doing things that are part of your NORMAL life. While change is inevitable, too much change – like what’s happening in this new covid world – has been proven to cause anxiety & depression on an elemental level…

NORMAL Line Dancing??!!

Good Morning! I have news! My line dance world is returning a bit more to normal, even though it’s obviously changed.  I’m personally leading up to three gatherings of dancing per day; boy, does it refresh my soul.  These get-togethers have the feel of classes, since they’re with small groups of about 10, but they’re not.  To have…

Oh What A Day!

Good morning! I’m blessed to be back line dancing a TON again – thankfully, I know a lot of Danceaholics who want to get back on the floor ! Sure does help, especially with all the upsetting news nowadays. I was really struggling, and feeling lonely & isolated…you know… I felt so content last night…

Change is Exhausting.

I am getting tired of processing all these changes.  The newest one to announce is this: Wheaton Park District is now requiring face coverings during all inside activities, including line dances where we are adequately spaced apart.  Therefore, the Bridge dances tonight and Friday the 21st, as well as the Bridge dances on Tuesday the 11th &…
