Death by Dancing Overdose

Over did dancing this month. I have a latin dance lesson tonight but guess what? I'm sneaking out of it and going to a movie with Peter instead. The Grey--with Laim Neison. I'm an adventure junkie so I gravitate towards survival type movies. I had a really good class at UBC last night despite being burnt out by Zumba. All my dances came together and I remembered all the steps to my 2 new ones. I have 2 students that come up and chat with me after class--I like that. And my male student Justin came back! He's the best--braves all those women and gives it his all each class. 
Worried about my dearest Tabs who is still home with influenza. It has gone to her chest and she still has a high fever. It looks like her school winter camp is a no go for her. I keep telling her we'll play it by ear but she is far to ill to go and there is no way the flu vanishes over night. Her spirits are high though and she loves cuddling with our boys (the dogs) who are all to thrilled to have someone to sleep with on the sofa. I am only leaving my baby Tabs tonight for the movie because Mist can watch her and we have our cell phone. I NEED to get out. I have ongoing issues with UBC grad school (that I will only talk about once I graduate!). I've done nothing but dance all month--no socializing, no leisure activities. I am freaking out a wee bit. Mist is having issues with her wardrobe and the semester change and Pip refuses to go to piano anymore. What's a mom to do? This is why I NEED a movie out tonight. And for the record, I have made Mango Chicken in the slow cooker tonight with sticky rice and a green/blueberry/avocado salad for supper. Once I make my mind up to do something--I do it. We will not eat out all month. This is so good for my family.
My latest cut-up t-shirt creation. Spider web design. I bought a 5$ t-shirt and cut it up. Like it or hate it, it was rather fun to make. I wanted a really light weight, black t-shirt to teach in because I always get so hot when I teach. I always end up opening the studio door and letting in some cold air 1/2 through class. I overheat fast. I don't know why but I think it is my genetics. I have a high metabolism so maybe that is why? Oh yes and I don't sweat very much either so that also raises my body temp. Love it but the straps kept falling down as I danced last night. Choreographed a song to "I'm Sexy and I know it" today. Dance is addicting somehow.

Happy to hear you are beginning to slow down and take some time to fill your own cup. Sorry to hear about the grad stuff, I know you will get there though!

We use our crock pot quite a bit during the week. This is one website that I have found some good recipes from. I had included the link with one of my favorite curry recipes, but to be honest I have doctored it quite a bit ;) by using a curry paste from the Asian Supermarket, adding garam masala and some cumin as well. Most of the recipes have gluten substitutes as well.

Thanks J,
I will definitely check out the link. Whether they like it or not, we are eating slow cooked meals all year long because I hate cooking in the evenings!
