    Oh no, poor you - what a horrid thing to happen. So frustrating!

    It's often possible to get a last-minute test somewhere when this sort of thing happens, so I hope you can.

    I just passed the Ten-Fox yesterday, which was the last of my bronze dances. My new goal is to pass the three pre-silver dances (Fourteenstep, European Waltz, and Foxtrot) by the end of next August.

    I'll settle for passing pre-Figures this summer and Figures 1 by late

    winter.
    I passed preliminary figures last Sunday at Lake Placid. I am pushing for passing Figures 1 next summer (Lake Placid is a lovely place to test and it's home ice for me).

    Land a fully rotated non-double footed double jump!(Other than double salchow) I can land a fully rotated one and put my foot down, or land it on one foot but then I cheat the rotation...*le sigh*
