The good news is that coach A. seemed pleased that I hadn't lost as much ground as I'd thought and so we worked on back edges (never one of my strong suits) and then ran through the three low end dances that I've been working on since, since, I don't know, probably since Moses was a mess cook. Progress seems so glacial. Since we're talking ice maybe that's appropriate. I'll think that over on my way to the liquor store. It appears the only ice I'm destined to see this weekend is that in my glass and whatever plops on the ground outside my house.
As we're now deep into competition season, coach's schedule is chock-a-block full and I'm living for the rare cancellation by one of her other students. My next shot at a lesson isn't until the 16th of February. This is what happens when you're clumsy and do a big face plant--you lose your slot in the coach's calendar. Double Sigh.
So, that's all I have to report other than the ice halos which I ordered weeks ago for myself and diaristdaughter have finally cleared Canada Post and crossed the border and have been handed off to USPS, and may actually beat the impending snow storm and arrive today. If so, I'll wear mine while going up and down the stairs! It's the best I can do under the circumstances. Stay warm.
