Our Valentine's Day gift to ourselves was to go to the ballet! I was just thrilled to see Romeo & Juliet. This is probably the ballet that I have seen the most often and I was excited to share it with Justin. As we watched, I couldn't believe how much of the music had seeped right into my heart. I remembered this trill and that boom. The dancing had changed though. Recently the National Ballet commissioned new choreography and I am so sorry to say that it simply resulted in me missing the pervious version. There were lovely moments and Juliet was extraordinary but for the most part the choreography never seemed to live up to the bigness of the music or the moments. Regardless, it was a thrill to be in this beautiful space, drinking it all in!
It was stressful, gross, anxiety-producing and at times upsetting but Reg figured out how to unclog our bathroom sink. It took me back to when I was a kid when the swear words would go around the house and the sizzle of frustration was in the air and how much that freaked me out. But I am an adult now and I got out my latex gloves and I helped and now our sink is running awesome and it is one less thing for us to stress about. Woot!
