This morning my daughter and I had to leave earlier than yesterday. Not super early, we had to go by 10:30, with whatever we will need until Sunday. Her first dance today was her variety duo. It’s pretty funny! Definitely very entertaining to watch! There were 5 duos from her studio in the same category. The morning/early afternoon judge is much more difficult than the afternoon/evening one that we had yesterday! She is quite particular and very nit-picking. Anyway, they did really well and received a high-silver. We found out after that their score was 84.5. For a gold you need a score of 85. So they were ridiculously close! Once we met in the lobby, we went to the Walmart and I bought some eye drops, as my one eye is red and sore for some reason. We also got a few drinks to bring to the hotel room with us. While she was rehearsing earlier, I called the hotel and asked them if we could check in early. They said that we could check in any time, because our room is ready. So from Walmart, we went to our hotel and checked in for the weekend. We had a lot of time to kill, but we were both feeling tired, she’s actually sick right now with a horrible cough and today her nose wouldn’t stop running! I’m actually going to buy her some better tissues as the ones in the hotel room feel like sandpaper, according to my daughter. We each lied down in our beds and just bummed out for quite a while! We were both feeling tired and lazy, so instead of going to get something to eat, we just ordered a couple small pizzas up to our room. After eating a couple pieces, I lied back down in the bed. I actually fell asleep for a good hour, hour and a half! When I woke up, she was texting with her group, trying to figure out what time they needed to be back at the Dow Theatre for tonight’s dance. One teacher said 8:20 and the other one said 7:20!! Quite the difference of opinion!! We decided to go in between the two times. The hotel is only about a block away from the theatre, so the drive and/or walk is easy. She usually has a ton of stuff, which is why we would drive. Despite the fact that I slept for a bit, or perhaps because of it, while they were rehearsing and I was waiting around I couldn’t stop yawning. Tonight’s dance started late, it wasn’t until 9:20! At least there were only 5 groups in the category, so it went quickly. The style is called modern at the studio my daughter attends. Some other places call it contemporary. I don’t know if there’s a big difference between them. The actual category was called modern/contemporary. The afternoon/evening judge was back! I like her more. They did really great! Especially with how sick she’s feeling. They received a gold for tonight’s performance. They were the youngest group in the category again!! On our way back to the hotel we went through the Wendy’s drive through, which is right beside our hotel. We brought the food up to our room with us. By the time we finished eating it was getting late. We both still felt tired. Tomorrow she doesn’t dance too early, we have to get up though, if we want the breakfast in the morning, which we do!! It’s from 7:00-10:00. We will probably go around 9:00-9:30, no reason to go too early!! Well, I’m feeling tired now. I should get some sleep so I’m not tired all day tomorrow again. I wish my tummy was not so blechy!! I can’t wait to see what they have to say about it on Monday. Just a couple more days!! Night All! 💤😴
