Today was our busiest day of the competition. My daughter had four dances to do in front of these difficult judges. After her first dance, I called our hotel to see if we could check in a bit early, because we had a 3 hour break before her next dance. I was feeling sleepy, because I didn’t get a good sleep last night. It took me forever to fall asleep!! I’m not sure why. I was just lying there feeling exhausted but unable to sleep. Maybe I should have tried writing more, that always seems to make me fall asleep. Anyway, we checked into our hotel during the break. I almost fell asleep lying around waiting for time to pass. I then drove my daughter back to the theatre, because she wanted to watch a friend’s dance. I ran to shoppers then back to the hotel and had a baby nap. I set an alarm on my phone so that I wouldn’t miss my daughter dancing! Then I went back to the theatre to watch her last three dances of the day. They danced really well! She received two golds and two high silvers. They got gold in hip hop and modern and high silver in lyrical and lyrical line. They did especially well in modern, because during the middle of the dance, the music cut out completely and it was silent in the theatre. They did exactly what you’re supposed to do and kept right on dancing. They did well, because when the music came back on they just continued dancing and were at the correct place in the dance!! Talk about stressful!! I was so proud of them. Tall about nerve wracking!! The hockey game started while she was still dancing…so I wasn’t able to wat h most of it. I caught the last 15 minutes of the third period (the Oilers lost ☹️). I came back to the hotel room, while my daughter stayed to watch the final dance off with a friend. They’re driving her back to the hotel when the dance off is finished. I’m trying to get my writing finished before she gets back. Also, I don’t want to go to bed late tonight. I’m still sleepy from last night and we have to wake up really early tomorrow!! We have to be at the theatre by 7:00am…yuck! I’m going to run now and start getting ready for bed, she’s going to be here any time now!!
