Yesterday my god-daughter was dancing in a benefit for cancer. Her ensemble does this every year. It was at 4 and we left at 2:30 to go 50 miles but 2 hours later we rolled into the HS. We missed about 30 minutes of the performance.
Fortunately we arrived in time to see her duet (not sure if that's the right term). She danced with one other girl. They were great.

The entire show was nice and there was a raffle at the end. We didn't win anything but that was okay as the money goes to a good cause.

Today I had my family over for brunch. My cousin made a surprise visit that delighted his mother. Everyone stayed until early afternoon.

After they left, I worked out, burning a lot of calories and getting my time in for my challenges. If not for the challenges, I might have just laid down.

    The challenge is also motivating me to exercise. I love the idea of dancing to benefit cancer. What a lovely way to help others!
