Yep, I asked Boss how he wanted my hair for the competition and his response was that his favourite was how my hair was today. After being sick for 3 days and not brushing it–THAT is his preference (except he wants it to not move).
So apparently to prepare for this comp I only need to roll out of bed and into make-up. Well maybe not quite that simple but I am glad I don’t have to try to control it. It is pretty unruly and curly right now. I figure some texturizing cream, my ‘glued’ gel and ‘freezing’ hairspray and I should be all good to go.
I am still not feeling better. Today the cold seems to have moved to my ears so it was making me dizzy and hard of hearing. I did make it to my lesson today, but Boss knew I wasn’t too well so he kept things simple.
We went through all of the routines except the solo in ‘easy’ mode and slow tempos and reviewed a few of the points from my last lesson. We just focused on specific steps in a couple of the routines that are in good shape and made some small adjustments that were needed in paso and samba.
I made it through everything although Quickstep made my head spin at the end of my lesson. I even felt better after my lesson, which I see as a good sign. Hopefully some decongestants tonight will clear out my ears and all will be well.
The plan right now is to do a 30 min run through of all routines on Wednesday, followed by a final lesson on Thursday. That is flexible depending on how I am feeling. The one thing that does concern me a little is that I will be doing a 5-dance event in Standard on Saturday night and I haven’t yet made it through all 5 dances without having to stop. I hope to rectify that on Wednesday or Thursday.
My dressmaker sent me a ‘preview’ photo of the stoning for my standard dress and I am really amazed at how it looks! I can’t wait to see the full dress and the latin dress as well. They should be ready Wednesday. Both dresses are very different from my previous dresses so I can’t wait to debut them at the competition!
Fingers are crossed that I continue feeling better and the rest of the week goes as planned!
