Tonight and last Thursday, Joseph and I have been able to go to Ballroom dancing lessons! It is always so fun to go, but this was the first time that we have been there 2 weeks in a row. HUGE SHOUT OUT to my IN-LAWS!! They wonderfully take care of our girls so that I can live out a childhood dream!:) Last week we were the only ones that showed up, so we had the instructor to ourselves. It was really COOL! We are learning the Cha-Cha and man, my body feels so stiff and old every time we start class. Lets not even get me started about the mirrors. Tonight they were not my friend;) I choose to rely on my imagination about how I look rather than the harsh honesty of the mirrors. I love how its such a good work out.
I really appreciate Joseph dancing with me, because it is my passion to dance and I was messing up a LOT tonight. When he messes up, I remind myself that he is doing these dance lessons for me. So, it helps with my patience immensely:) He is a good sport. I told him, last year, that I was going to learn how to ballroom dance with or without him. Luckily, for me, he is the slightly jealous type. The idea of me learning to dance with another guy, didn't set well with him. So, he decided to be my dance partner. Now, that he's been taking me he realizes that it is mainly single women that come and never any single guys. Hahaha...too late for him now! He bought himself a pair of dance shoes, so he's dancing until those shoes wear out:)
It's the only way, I get a work out in these days. The winter hasn't been that bad for me, since I have dancing to look forward to every week. Now, if I can just find a pick-up game or two of Volleyball, this winter would be awesome!;) I wouldn't mind teaching the volleyball basics to anyone who wants to learn. I'd just have to find a place and time to do so. Hmmm....we'll see how that works out!
