Pajama Jam

Last night I went to a Pajama Jam themed swing dance!
It was quite fun, with a live band, bar and breakfast food served all night.
Got a chance to practice my Balboa too.

{Halloween Dances}

Hi yes, still alive and breathing here.
I had 2 throat surgeries in July and complications from that.. scar tissue, infection, bleeding out and nearly dying, not being able to eat for 3 weeks and pneumonia!
Then busy with nursing job, pharmacy studies, American Red Cross work and subsequently moving to new Naval Hospital, sewing/crocheting and swing dancing!
Well, it's said there ain't no rest for the wicked...

I'm so bad, but I promise to be better.
A death in the family, other family drama, school, regular work, volunteer work, health issues.. it's enough to make anybody disappear from the sheer busyness of it all.
