Possible Dance Songs

I love to dance. Around my house where no one can see me. Because I'm all alone, that means I have no clue what's popular in the clubs. Here's your chance to help me out. Take a look at my list and make suggestions to add or take away. Keep in mind that this is for the M&M conference, so we have a wide range of age groups and a variety of tastes. I gotta try to keep it pretty clean. If you have request, please let me know why it should be added or why it should be taken away. Oh, and heaven help the poor DJ who will be weaving these songs together!

Again, Let me Reiterate, I'm not Dead Yet!

So about that whole New Year's Resolution to have a blog post every week....

Well, I'm in the last two weeks before Moonlight & Magnolias, and this is my last run-through as conference co-chair. I'll be revisiting that commitment and hopefully doing a better job. Honestly, the kids alone provide me with PLENTY of material. I have a story jotted down on the back of an envelope somewhere to remind me to write a post about how my 9-year-old was throwing around the word "simpatico."

In the meantime, here are a few of my greatest hits from Petit Fours and Hot Tamales and The Healthy Writer:

Her Majesty's Christmas List
Getting my OM on
My First Day of School All Over Again
I Got Ripped
Adventures in Attempted Productivity
Er, Don't Take my Breath Away?
Just a Space Cadet from the Writer's Block
Back to School....Already?
