Kombucha Discovery and Dancing
After a nice run and a strength class at 24-Hour Fitness, I went to get groceries, and there it was hiding in the refrigerator case at the end of the lunchmeat aisle — my new favorite kombucha. Rowdy Mermaid lavender flavor is clean, crisp, low in sugar, refreshing. Aaaahhh. If they could bring the price of the tiny can of booch down to less than a gallon of gas, it would be awesome. Also, I wonder if the mermaids were reprimanded for being rowdy?
This afternoon I got to see Aunt Cho and Ellen. That’s always a treat when they get to come down for a visit since Dr. Cho’s schedule can be crazy.
I absolutely love dancing. I could literally dance all night with little to no convincing. Tonight I got to dance for 1 1/2 hours straight! My friend Alice invited me and a few other friends to join her in the VIP section at the Bell Biv DeVoe concert at Mission Viejo Lake. We tried to act nonchalant as we walked to our seats, but when we discovered we were on the front row, we just couldn’t contain ourselves. “What?!! “ They were right in front of us singing Poison, Cool It Now, and Mr. Telephone Man. Close enough that we could count the rhinestones on Bell’s shiny belt.
After the concert, there was a fireworks show to conclude the summer concert series at the lake. I felt so blessed to be there with friends, taking in the spectacular sky show to the eclectic soundtrack of Sweet Caroline, I Will Survive, and Pennies from Heaven.
On days like this — wonderful, peaceful, relaxing days — I still know something is missing. Someone is missing. It’s always present in my thoughts, this new reality. Tonight I thought of how much Chandler loved dancing. LOVED dancing! I feel connected to him when I dance now.
I just miss him so much. Even on days like this.
