Today Was Long, Tomorrow Will Be Longer...

I feel like this morning was days ago... Woke up early, did some computer work, walked to work and  taught my awesome adult students at Block Institute, walked home and had a quick lunch-reheats of Joe's yummy tofu pasta scramble thing and then headed to the gym to do a hill running workout (the incline SERIOUSLY pissed off my right knee... mental note- take it easy on the incline), then walked to my other job and taught my awesome 4th graders (West African Dance) and 5th graders (Salsa Dance). If ever you find yourself tired or cranky, simply tell a fifth grade boy that he has to ballroom dance and watch his reaction. Made. My. Day. :)

One of two big bags I've packed for tomorrow- mini flatiron, shine spray, HAWT Guess heels, yellow clutch, LBD, patterned tights, tiny hairbrush, Trader Joe's Chickpea deliciousness for lunch and hiding inside the bag are my makeup tote along with some other essentials to go from Dance Teacher to Executive Board Member in a flash! In my backpack I'll have all my teaching materials for the day!

Tomorrow will be absolute crazy-pants busy. I teach nine groups of pre-school/ kindergarten aged kiddos at Block Institute, then race back to Sheepshead Bay to teach 1st grade (Irish Step Dance) and 2nd Grade (Traditional Chinese Dance) and then Joe's meeting me at the school so we can book it into Manhattan for the Benefit Gala Performance of Mind The Art Entertainment's award winning 2010 Fringe play, The Timing of a Day. Joe and I are both Board Members of MTAE, and I'm super excited to celebrate our extension of this awesome piece. 

Last but not least, if you haven't already, PLEASE vote for me to be a trophy chaperone at this year's Drama Desk Awards! It would be a dream come true!

I should have been sleeping an hour ago... oops! :) Sweet dreams!

Done! Your photo was SERIOUSLY far down on their page though. I'd re-post on there to gain some new interest. :)

Keelie Sheridan said...

Erica- I LOVE my job... but I am EXHAUSTED at the end of every day! :)

Lacey- Thanks! I'll try to bump it up today!

Superwoman- YES! I started Irish Dancing when I was 8 and danced with the Wild Irish Acres School in Saratoga Springs, NY until I was 18, and then I've been with the Niall O'Leary School in NYC since then- so a total of about 16 years... Crazy!

How long/ where do you dance??
