The Removal of Grease

I have always been a dirt magnet for as long as I can remember. It used to drive my mother crazy with all the clean up that required when I was around and involved. And as far as clothes go, I gave up on wearing anything white decades ago because that is just asking for trouble where I am concerned. I have ruined more clothes in my life time that anybody has a right to for goodness sake.

Since I am not what you would call a girly girl and enjoy getting my hands dirty I have had to learn how to clean myself up along with all the other messes that always seem to make where ever I go, sigh…..One thing that I have learned to try and stay away from is grease since it can be a real pain to deal with in so many areas. I love that WD-40 has come out with a No Mess Pen that you can carry in your purse or pocket. As you know trying to remove grease can be tricky.

No

This is currently my favorite Meghan Trainor song. She just keeps pumping out the hits. Her and Katty Perry just float this girl’s boat! They are always about some type of “Girl Power” and since I am a product of the 1980s the Spice Girls were a huge influence on girls of all ages back then!

Thunder on the DC Mall

Every year there are thousands of motorcycles headed toward Washington, DC for the annual “Rolling Thunder.” This is a huge parade of sorts, where thousands of motorcycles ride through downtown DC to the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial and the Washington Monument in memory of our men and women serving our country in the military. There is always a rally with speeches and politicians who want to get elected or re-elected for some public office. But more than anything, the camaraderie of all the bikers is what makes this ride so special.

I have been on the ride several times, but this year my motorcycle is not running and I couldn’t find anyone I knew who was going and could give me a ride. Almost everyone I know is married or involved with someone that they were taking on the ride. So I missed it this year, but hopefully next year I’ll be back on the road with my own bike. For now I’ll just have to kick back and at least enjoy the Joy Jewelers military rings that I purchased with a good amount of gift cards that I had saved up from last Christmas!

The Big Dream

I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business but really the only thing I’ve ever been good at is dancing. I love moving my body and then it hit me – why don’t I open a dance studio where I teach kids the things I know? I’ve had my own place for about 2 years now and business is just wonderful.

I get to go to work every day knowing that I get to see some of my favorite kids and also get to dance my thoughts away. I have it all decked out with the best flooring and changing rooms and a good security system to protect all the AV equipment at night when I’m not there. I’m loving being a small business owner so far and if I just hang on another year or so I think I’ll be able to hire a couple more trainers as well! I never imagined being this successful and I know my family is almost as proud of me as I am of myself…and I really am!

There are a lot of great sayings concerning dance, but this is a new one that I saw on Facebook that really touched me enough to share it here on my personal blog.

I could be just dreaming
