Until now, this blog has mostly been for my dance students. As of this summer, however, I am no longer teaching dance due to a spinal problem, There's probably an operation in my future. Meanwhile, I've gone back to an old pastime, dressing and restoring dolls. Together with my Mom, I built quite a nice collection of antique dolls. Many of these have been sold through the auction house Theriault's. I recently had the chance to pick up several Asian ball-jointed dolls at a nice price, so I plan to spend the winter customizing and dressing them.
Tonight, though, I'm making a list of all the things I have to do to prepare for hurricane Sandy. Such a banal name. Indeed, the whole hurricane prep thing has gotten to be a real pain in the ass. Will a tree fall on my house? Will my basement flood? Will the generator run out of gas at 3 AM? I'm too old for this pioneer woman stuff. How many days will be be without power this time? - this Aughst it was 6 days, and we spent most of that time upstairs at Wegmans, where my Daughter could use the internet.
