Dancing With Our Stars!

I never in a million years thought I would write a blog about dancing, but here I am- writing about dancing!  When I was approached by the Red Cross to participate In Dancing With Our Stars I wanted to laugh and run away but the chance to raise money for such a great cause was too good to turn down. [caption id="attachment_3100" align="aligncenter" width="199" caption=" My Official Photo! "][/caption] Even though I have athletic ability (or at least I used to!), I am in no way a dancer so this is a real challenge. To make it even more intimidating, one of my competitors is Betina Driver who is dancing with her husband, Donald Driver.  Some of you might remember that he WON the mirror ball on the last season of Dancing With the Stars.  Nope, that’s not intimidating at all! In case anyone is wondering they are both as engaging and “real” as they appear to be on TV.
