BUT I have to brag- I LEARNED TO SNOWBOARD TODAY – WOHOO TO MEEEEEE. You have no idea how frustrated I was at first. I almost started crying because I just fell and fell and fell and fell even more… Yes , 2 first hours I spent falling. lol… But second 2 hours was the best time I have had in a long time… I learned it, I fell once or twice, ut OMG, I CAN DO IT. :):):):) Tomorrow (24th) I am going to spend 2 more hours snowboarding and then I have to cook christmas dinner. :):)
OK. BTW. Gariel and regina spent 6 hours in snowboarding camp also and Gabriel also loves snowboarding. Regina thinks it is not her thing( just like her dad ) 😉

AND I did have an ultrasound today… I found out that I indeed am very fertile RIGHT NOW… But I do not think that I will put my eggs into use anytime soon…. Everything looked good, so I guess I do have to get my thyroid checked….
And nick is coming home tomorrow. Yesterday I went to sport Chalet ( sp) and got ourselves whole bunch of warm clothing for Big bear purporses… I WANT TO LEARN TO SNOWBOARD. I really do,, so watch out, I can feel adrenaline rush just thinking about my new upcoming adventure….
Ok. I decided to add few words also about m recital… First of all- we could not rehearse before our performance. SO it was totally OMG type of recital.lol From Alise viejo group only 6 girls showed up, I was kind of pissed about it. laguna beach had more dancers… and some of those beginner bithces were real BITCHES…. cheesh.. I asked them about performance and all I got was – YOu should know better….duh. I do , I was just testing you- seemed like you fat ass had no idea yourself.. TOTALLY…..
Anyway, performance was ok. SInce 2 groups were united on stage, little confusion moments kicked in and I probably looked like chicken on wheels,b but at least i could move my hips …lol duh…
Next belly dancing season starts in february- I can’t wait till then.
