Snow and Dancing

In case you haven’t heard, our city/counties have been shut down a few times in the last couple of weeks because of snow, cold temperatures and the wind.  I believe the kids are up to 8 snow days already this year.  Some schools are already called off tomorrow, I’m just waiting for the call that theirs is.  Luckily, the 12 hour day schedule has actually helped as in I’ve only lost 1 day to shut down out of 3.  They were shut down the last couple of days but they were already scheduled days off so there is that.  We can’t afford for me to miss, too broke.  As of now, the plant is schedule to be reopened tomorrow morning, just in time for me to go in on my scheduled day.  I keep trying to explain to the kids when they get excited about another day off, that they are going to end up going until July to make them up.


My daughter posted the above status after I told her last night that I have never been to a school dance.  I think she’s thinking that we are recreating this.


We danced at my nieces wedding, that was back in 2010 (I think).  I tried to warn her by posting these videos on the comments saying that I was going to dance like this.

or pick one of these dances

She didn’t find it that funny.  I recall her saying she would die.  My brother responded with this video saying it would probably be more like this.

She has no idea what she’s in for.  My mom used to make fun of me because I had all the athletic skills in the world (before I got fat) but I couldn’t dance to save my life.  The sad thing is, I can’t even argue it, she’s right.

She thinks she’s nervous, I’m the one that’s nervous, I’ve never been to a dance, not even when I was in school.  I have no idea what to expect.  Sure I can slow dance, all that is is rocking back and forth and moving my feet in a slow circle but if they pull out a faster, upbeat song, I’m screwed.  I will look like one of the videos above.  It will be worse if they play some of the crap that the kids listen to, I might have to leave early.  She may actually want to leave early to avoid more embarrassment.


  1. Heehee, I can't wait to read about this! At least you're gonna try to dance. My hubby sways.

    1. Don't count out the swaying, I may do that too.

  2. My granddaughters are so excited to go to a dance with their dad. I know your daughter will really love it. have a great time.

    1. She is too, but I like to keep her nervous by showing her my dance moves every so often.
