I always hate these about me boxes. So, who am I? I'm a mom of four, a knitter, writer, and service dog handler. I'll probably revamp this whole thing later, so I guess I won't write much for now.

Define "Protection" in Service Dog

An interesting topic was brought up on one of the service dog groups today. Can a service dog be trained for “protection work?” This is a complex kind of thing, because “protection dogs” aren’t...

The Meet & Greet in Service Dog

Today I went to a service dog meetup at the mall. It was my first ever service dog meetup. Mind you, I’ve met up with other service dog teams before, but never like this. It’s always either be...


There was a video today in the local service dog meetup group. It was about a dog that was super aggressive and hostile at the mall. Not only was the dog hostile, but so was the handler, insist...

I'm Sorry But... in Service Dog

So, the other day I was kicked out of another restaurant. It’s really getting old. It’s all because I have a service dog and I try to go to places that are small, local, and ethnic. Apparently...


I mean, I want a studio and all, but wow, things are starting to move fast for me. This is moving quick, considering a year ago I didn’t even have one class. Now I’m on the verge of teaching fi...

And... I Hurt... in Dance

Okay, I did it. I took the first ITS lesson on Datura Online. In part that’s because I really need to be getting back into taking Datura classes again, since I am paying for it, but also becaus...


Okay, I’m putting myself 100% into my business in 2019. I’ve determined that 2019 is going to be my big year for getting all the gears turning. I know I’ve said a lot of what we’re going to use...

Tomorrow Is the Day... (Pics) in Dance

Flash mob is tomorrow, and I’m not sleeping yet. It’s going to be a hard day tomorrow, especially since I’m not sleeping. I was always like this the night before a big show, but it’s not as eas...

I Did It, And Now I Wait in Dance

I did it, I put my name in to perform a solo at the event coming up in April. I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to get there, but I’m going to make it happen. Even if I have to stay in a loca...


Okay, I was going to type this out before class, but then I ran out of time, so I deleted everything I wrote and started over. I’m not entirely sure how I’m still up right now, but I’m somehow a...

So Far Behind in Dance

Last night seriously kicked my butt. It was a good thing, but it was mentally and emotionally more draining than I imagined, though I knew two hours of dance was going to take it out of me physi...


I did it! I actually got out of the house today, in spite of how horrible I’ve been feeling. I figured I had to do something after sleeping pretty much all day yesterday. Of course, I regrette...

I Have How Many Students? in Dance

When I agreed to start teaching I was asked how many students I could possibly max out my class at. I wanted to laugh at that. Ideally my max capacity for students would be something like a doz...

I Am a Horrible Person... in Dance

…okay, so maybe that’s an exaggeration, but I’m competitive, a perfectionist, and I have incredibly high standards. We’re not talking anything unreasonable, but I’m definitely a critic in more w...

I Have No Words... in Dance

I don’t. Tonight was just, I was floored, and now my heart is soaring in a way it hasn’t in possibly ever. This feels like it could have possibly been the best moment of my entire life. I have ...

Small Class, High Focus in Dance

I was so frustrated tonight. Class turnout was pretty much nil. I had just got through telling everyone I was just going to hold class for the next three weeks because we’d been getting steady ...

It's Almost 4 am... Again... in Dance

Yeah, another dance entry, though this is all business, and man, I got a lot done today! I’m not kidding, for the first time in a long time I was total beast on the business aspect of it. Somet...


I kind of bit the bullet, as it were, and spent some money today. I bought myself some sports bras. I need something to dance in, right? It was hard because I kept telling myself we have to sa...

Ejected in Service Dog

Today was a first. I actually got kicked out of a store because of my service dog. No, it’s not because she was acting up, causing a scene, or damaging anything. She was just minding her own b...
