I finally did something I have wanted to do for years - I signed up for swim lessons! I know how to swim, sort of. Okay, maybe I should rephrase that. I can get from one end of the pool to the other, but what I do to get there may not be what anyone would actually call swimming. ;-)
The 1st group class was yesterday and I met several really, really nice folks (mostly women). And many of them, like me, need to be taught proper form, breathing, etc. However, I would venture to guess that about 75% of the class consisted of folks who are either afraid of the water or who are not afraid, but don't even know how to float. And to think that I was afraid of being the worst swimmer in the class! I guess it never occurred to me that there would be folks who didn't like the water. As luck would have it, within 5 minutes of getting in the pool, there was a rumble of thunder and we all had to exit the pool. Class was cancelled. Bummer! I'm hoping today will be better. I was really looking forward to getting in at least a little bit of a workout.
Next, I dried off and headed to school to meet about our Econ group project. I definitely have the Mommy guilt this week. I haven’t seen the kiddo awake for more than 10 minutes since Sunday! And tonight, it's more of the same..work, swim lesson, school, home. But, I am hoping to finish my take home exam, "reaction paper" and case study tonight, so that I can spend tomorrow and Friday evenings hanging out with the family and get a run in. (and maybe I can sleep past 4:30..at least until we get our next Econ assignment on Sat.)
I've always been one who loves to stay busy, but this is a bit much! :-)
