Last night my daughter was awake for most of the night coughing! It was quite bad, almost non-stop. I felt so bad for her. I tried to help her, giving her cough suppressant and a hot cloth to put on her chest. However, nothing helped! She just kept coughing and coughing! So, this morning when we were finally both asleep, we didn’t really want to get up when the alarm went off. We snoozed it a few times, then we were finally semi/awake by about 9:45. Breakfast was ending at 10:00. We decided we would get food when we checked out of the hotel. We got ready and left the hotel around 11:25. The problem was that she had to be back stage by 11:30. So, she ended up not eating anything before her first dance!! Maybe we should have gone to breakfast after all!! I met my mom and dad in the lobby. We went into the theatre and watched the category before my daughter’s. Her dance was Mamma Mia, which is an extra large group variety number, it includes 3 different ABBA songs from the movie (or musical). They did really well! They received a high-gold and first place in their category. We found out later that they scored .1 away from a diamond! Crazy close! There wasn’t enough time for her to eat before she had to be ready in rehearsal hall for ballet. My parents and I went to the DQ, where my dad got a coffee, my mom had a small, dipped cone and I got a bottle of water. After they finished, we went back into the theatre and watched the category before my daughter’s. Then we watched her category, it was her ballet dance. They received a gold. Afterwards, we met my daughter in the lobby where we said goodbye to my parents and we drove to Wendy’s to get food. We went through the drive through and drove back to the Dow theatre, where we ate in the van. When we finished eating, we came back inside and we watched a category together, along with my daughter’s friend. It had a few of their other friends in it. Then they went to get ready for the dance off. My daughter’s jazz dance made it into tonight’s final dance off. The routines with the highest scores (the top four for each adjudicator, plus one wild card each, up until noon today. Then any additional number from this afternoon that received a high enough, score would be added.) I was hoping that they wouldn’t add too many more, because I was ready to go home after her ballet!! I’m beat!! There ended up being 14 dances in the dance off. They danced quite well and there certainly was stiff competition!! They didn’t end up placing in the dance off, but they did well and had fun!!Afterwards, I got my daughter something to eat and then we had to drive home. I was feeling pretty tired – still am!!When we got home I was definitely ready for bed. My daughter fell into bed super quickly!! My darn tummy is feeling sick and it doesn’t help much that we didn’t get a lot of sleep last night!! I’m glad that I see the dr finally tomorrow for my tummy. I finally get to see if they found anything in my lab test. I’m hoping that there’s an explanation for this dumb tummy of mine!! For now I’m going to go to bed!! I’m beyond exhausted!
Night All! 💤😴
