Sunday Salon: July 8, 2012


What's going on in my personal life:
I haven't been online much in the last week for various reasons
  • Frozen Shoulder--I'd like to say this is the main reason that I've been away from the computer because that would make me a good patient. My right arm and shoulder have been bothering me for about 2 months and I knew it was mouse-induced. But, I didn't get to a physical therapist until last week. So, I am trying to be on the computer less and to fix my set up so I don't continue to hurt myself. All easier said than done.
  • Vegas--We've been in Las Vegas for the PULSE Dance Convention since Thursday. Our hotel has internet, but for some reason Safari cannot get the Google pages to work (that would be email, my Reader, and Blogger). Seriously, it was like we were back in the dial-up days. It took me a few days to realize I could install Google Chrome (duh) and now things are mostly running better so I am back.

This convention is pretty great: many SYTYCD choreographers are here teaching classes, giving advice, etc. My daughter even got called out by Cris Judd (choreographs for J Lo among others) so that was pretty exciting! She got to perform on the Thursday evening, getting useful and good feedback from expert judges. And she had the opportunity to get headshots taken.

How did they know I was in town?
Thank goodness we're inside with AC!

Then there is Vegas. Hot, light-filled, loud (casinos), smoke, crazy outfits, and Hot (did I mention that already? I guess we are doing better than people on the other side of the country who have heat, humidity and no air conditioning). We did venture out on Friday to window shop at the Caesar's Palace shops, which was fun. This city is so full of life and craziness!

What's going on in my library at work:
I am almost done re-creating my school's new website, which feels really good. It's been a lot of work, but it also feels good to re-evaluate what we want it to look like, etc.

What's going on with my reading:
I am doing WAY less reading this summer than I would like. In the past I read 3 to 4 books per week in the summer, but due to lots of driving to and from dance, working on my school's website and other distractions, I am only reading one or two. Perhaps that means I am living more life?
