Hello there my lovelies :)
There are some quizzes/surveys floating around that I would like to swipe and answer, but I shall save that for another day.
Today I practiced my dance routines for about four hours. I am slowly getting more flexible and developing more strength in my back, neck and arms. And my waistline is getting smaller and more "hourglass" like. Or at least it looks that way to me. I think that I am starting to get a little jealous of myself when I look in the mirror. If I were me, I would date me. I mean, I am me. I can't date myself. Ewww. Wait, nevermind........
Today I finally had a breakthrough and was able to balance the sword on my head and dance on the floor without it falling off. I mean, of course I have a lot more practicing to do until I get it all right. But this was a start.
And I am supposed to get my new outfit on Tuesday. I just hope it's ready.
I also got a comment on my last journal entry from my cousin in Austria. Apparently she is now reading my blog with my grandmother. And they don't even really speak English. In fact, my grandma doesn't speak English at all. And they still work to understand my entries. How's that for love ? That really made me happy.
My grandma really wants me to have a boyfriend. Last time I was in Austria she asked me in her thick Austrian accent while she was cooking for guests if I can cook and I told her no. "You know Sandra, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Just then a man came over and profusely thanked my grandma and shook her hand for the wonderful meal she cooked. "Einfach wunderschoen." I just told her I would have to find other ways to his heart.
My grandma is kinda traditional and romantic and she wants me to have the same in my life. Thank God I am not leaving it up to her to pick my suitor.
All this talk about "mein Oma " really makes me miss her. She's very much European and very proud of Austria and hates the EU and I really love that about her. She's like my connection to the past almost. I can't wait to go back to Austria to see her. If any of you have any family not from the US that is proud of their roots you should embrace that.
Anywho, these are my two cents for the day.
