Today

Yesterday was fun but I'm not exactly looking forward to today. As I was putting together an outfit for dinner yesterday, I just felt like all the black I had on made it look more like I was going to a funeral than a family's Thanksgiving dinner. I have some colored sweaters but they're all pretty big and baggy and casual. I was wishing for a solid colored more fitted dressy sweater. I was WISHING there was just one clothing store actually open on Thanksgiving so I could go buy one.

Then I remembered that here in Seattle, we have a clothing store that is actually inside a grocery store. And grocery store's are open on Thanksgiving at least until 3 or 4pm. So I went running off to the Fred Meyer store and promptly did some clothes shopping. I just knew there had to be one thing in there that would work. Sure enough, I found a nice solid colored fitted top. And it was a deep, dark burgundy red, so that gave it a nice gothy feel to me as well even though it was a color. It was marked down from $32 to $18 and I promptly purchased it along with a cute pair of black leg warmers that had pink stripes at the top and pink skull and cross bones at the top (not to be worn on Thanksgiving, but for clubbing later). So with my nice burgundy top, a little lace camisole peeking a bit out of the top and a black skirt with black Mary Jane shoes (thanks sweetestkiss for finding those for me a couple months back!), I put together a very conservative little Cage Kitten. I also put my hair up to downplay the pink in my hair and put on a beautiful beaded necklace.

Today I finally have the schedule requests from my three instructors and two trainees. One of them wants to teach at least 2 classes. So I somehow have to fit in 6 level 1 classes this session, along with 2 or 3 level 2 classes, a level 3 class, a level 4 class and I'm even getting request for a level 5 class. I usually try to make sure I have Sunday or Thursday off (a girl has to have ONE day off a week to go dancing!) but I don't see that happening for the 1st 6 weeks of 2009. 3 or 4 or my new instructors still need to be supervised, so I have to attend their classes as well as teach my own.

Today the kitchen and bathroom need cleaning. And I have GOT to do some unpacking today, at least some. And I have about 2 months worth of unopened mail to attend to. Ick.

I should have made some plans for tonight. All that work and no play will make for a dull Kitten. If anyone is doing anything tonight that doesn't involve dancing (I'm saving that for Saturday), please e-mail me.
