I Can't Dance, No I Can't

“I’m just a horrible dancer. Terrible. In fact, I’m so gad I even have a rule against it. No dancing unless I’m alone in my room or it’s pitch-black dark.” - Catherine in Rules by Cynthia Lord. ...more

A Good Day

Today was a good one, mostly because I made a conscious effort to make it so. Parenting meeting in the morning meant 2 totally kid-free hours, a decent nap for the little one, playground time after school, dance time after TV time. The dance was the highlight-nothing but goofing off and letting off steam. ...more

Dance as if Nobody is Watching

After dinner, my kids raced off to their bedroom without cleaning their faces or washing their hands.  With their mouthes covered in spaghetti and maybe a few little stains on their clothes, they blaired their obnoxious, I mean lovely, Hannah Montana CD and danced their little hearts out.  I, of course, grabbed my camera and the rest is history.  By the way, my boy LOVES to breakdance.  And please note that his attire.  He LOVES his suit pants, too.  He wears them all the time.  Not the entire suit, mind  you, just the pants....more

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: Another Dancer Injured. What Up with These Worker's Comp Issues?

And we have one other serious topic to address! Can we talk? I think it's time. I've been sitting idly by, hoping that So You Think You Can Dance would solve its problems on its own, but clearly that's not happening. It's time for an intervention. Oh, no no no. I'm not talking about the rash of injuries on the show. First Alex, then Ashley, now Billy Bell. No. I'm talking about host Cat Deeley's wardrobe. Because every time she was on screen last night I simply could not stop myself. I had to say out loud: What. the. HELL???? ...more

Best Workout Songs!

I'm always a sucker for lists of "best workout tunes" or "greatest exercise music" or "awesome playlists." This is because I NEED music to work out to, and the right tune can turn exercise from a dreary form of torture to a fist-pumping, heart-pounding, endorphin-generating, cardio extravaganza. I get so goofy and high when I hear good music, I'm surprised I'm still legally allowed to download mp3s....more

Dancing Cheek To Cheek

Jen @ www.afterthealter.com I have always love going out to dinner. It doesn’t matter where we go..it could be Friendlys’ (my favorite) or Friday’s…I just like the actual ACT of going out. Sometimes, when I watch old movies or TV shows I find myself longing to be transported back in time to the days of Ricki Ricardo’s Club Babalu where you were entertained by a band while you ate, and with dessert came dancing. Do places like this still exist? ...more
