Happy 2006
Started off pretty well.  I couldn't tolerate the electric slide with those people, though.  They kept missing a step when they weren't following me.  They'd follow me for two turns yeah then I wasn't in front anymore, then they'd follow someone else and not put enough steps in.  Drove me about up the wall!!!  You know how I love that 'lectric slide.  I actually stopped in the middle and sat down. 
Also fell down during "Love Shack," my favorite dancing song.  I had on these spike heels and the dance floor ended, the spike went on the carpet with the rest of the foot on the floor.  Well, I went backwards, quite gracefully I might add, or so I was told, and started laughing hysterically.  There were two long tables of strangers right behind me looking at me.  While I was laughing and before I got up, I "shouted" "Not one drink, I swear."  That got them laughing.  It was pretty funny.
Only thing is I used the ball of my hand to break my fall and now it's bruised. 
At midnight I got sad.  DH did right by me, though.  He danced a fast tune with me.  This is good progress, folks.  Never thought I'd get this far, dancewize.  He was happy, one woman told him he looks like Harrison Ford.  I call him Harrison now.  Anyway, he got me in a better mood.  I'm not usually at parties where they aren't playing for 13-year olds.  It was good music, good friends and a really nice cocktail hour and dinner. 
Two people to pray for.  Mom's cousin Claire had back surgery, it was feeling better and then she broke her arm.  She needs surgery and is getting it Thursday.  She also had fainting spells, so they decided to check her for a recurrance of BC too, so now she's in the waiting game again.  She's such a positive person.  I really hope she mends ok.  I'd hate to see her give up, she's probably close to 80, and Jasha, her DH isn't the healthiest (in his 80's). 
Also Cindy.  She's the office manager at the clinic and has saved my *** on more than one occasion by letting me know what others were thinking and doing when the environment was less than friendly.  She's a dear friend and a BC sister.  She is moving to Virginia so she can be able to deal with her husband who has seasonal affective disorder.  It finally got so bad that she's retiring early to get down there.  She's very artistic and made everyone holiday things.  I got something different.  She adhered pink jewells so they formed a ribbon onto a big pink satin glass puffed heart ornament.  She added ribbon and painted it.  It is absolutely beautiful and I cried when I opened it.  I will treasure it forever.  I really hope she adjusts well when she moves.  She was born and raised up here.  I will miss her so.

LOL Ellen, you and the electric slide!!! I had never heard of it until you talked about it and now every time I hear the words I think of you and remember you dancing in Louisville. You are something else. I can just see you in those spikes whirling around! With Harrison yet!

Sorry about your cousin and friend. I will remember them in my prayers. The ornament sounds absolutely beautiful. I would love to see it. I can't imagine anyone moving to VA for health. It is a beautiful state but the weather is not exactly like AZ or some other places people go for health. I hope it works for them and she finds happiness there.

Take care of yourself and family and have a wonderful 2006.

Now I wish I had stayed up late in Louisville to see you do the electric slide....or better yet, to have you teach me how to do it. Yes, it's my sad secret....I am 36 and have never learned. Oh, the shame ;-)

And to do it in heels no less!

Glad to hear you had a great New Years. You deserve it, chica!
