I am so sick right now! It’s horrible. Last Monday night, my throat was really scratchy and I could barely swallow. It got worse Tuesday, and then Wednesday I lost my voice at rehearsal. Tony eventually made me go to the doctor, so I’m on medicine now. He’s also been making me take liquid vitamin shots every few hours. That’s helped boost my energy a little. So I’m not better, but I’m not getting worse.
It’s just a head cold, but right now my body’s kind of weak because it’s fighting the sickness. It’s been hard this week! I just hope that I feel better by Monday night so I give it my all.
We’re doing the quickstep, and it requires a ton of energy. I haven’t been sick in over a year! I can’t believe I’m sick the week Tony and I are dancing to the quickstep. We’ll be performing to “Love Machine” by Girls Aloud. Tony and I are going to push the limits with the quickstep. We’re going to be all over the dance floor like a show pony!
