31 Weeks - The Kickoff to Dickens

So let's just say that going in, I knew the Dickens thing would be ambitious. However, after 1 day, I'm feeling great! I danced. I called. I led sets. By late afternoon, I was thinking, "Geez, maybe we *could* do this next year with the right set up."

Yeah, yeah, crazy talk. I'll get over it.

But really, feeling great! And now luxuriating in our hotel room. This year, the fair arranged for an awesome participant discount on rooms at the Radisson just 3 miles from the Cow Palace. It was nice to be fed by 9, showered, by 9:30, and lounging in bed watching Once Upon a Time on Tivo To Go for an hour.

It may not go this well the rest of the weekend. It may not go this well in future weeks. But right now, I'm getting merrily kicked by a happy little girl while lounging in a King sized bed and my alarm isn't set to go off til 8:30 tomorrow. Usually, we wake at 7 to get to fair on time. This is going to be so awesome.

So yeah, I look ridiculous. At 5 foot 1 inch, 31 weeks pregnant is Very Obviously Pregnant. But favorite dance partners have waltzed and mazurka'd with me and the biggest difference is that my boots are hard to get on in the morning even though I'm not wearing a corset. Erik is helpful with that. On the plus side, the boots seem to help keep my feet from swelling so badly.

I noticed a wallflower this afternoon standing behind the chairs who promptly professed two left feet, and I said, "Ah, well we do specialize in fixing that here." And he gave me permission to try. We waltzed and then I handed him off to Miss Bodeswell for the Duke of Kent and then caught sight of him dancing again nearly an hour later. Super-Fezzi Powers = still got 'em.
