The water isn’t as cold as I imagine it will be. I’ve been bracing myself since I walked into the change room for the bone chilling temperature that makes you wonder if this is even a good idea because don’t people get sick from cold water? The water might not be cold but the lanes are full and that’s not something I planned on. It takes me awhile before I’m comfortable, before I’ve stopped wondering if I’m taking up too much space or if they’re shaking their heads at how out of practice I am, how I’ve swallowed pool water instead of breathing twice now, stopping completely to snort chlorinated water out of my nose in a fashion I’m sure is considered ridiculously attractive and try to clear my head.

My Life = Food
1. & 2.) I have family that loves cooking.
3.) Good book and an iced cap before work.
4.) If you ever wanted to know what the inside of a soft ice cream machine looks like.
5. 6. & 7.) I work with food. All. The. Time. (I also eat it quite often.)
8.) Walking to the pool and stopping to look at ALL OF THE WORMS.
9. & 10.) Things that are awesome: getting to be at the pool when NO ONE ELSE IS THERE because one of your sisters is the manager.
11.) My wet pants because I didn’t expect to go swimming.
Things have been crazy busy lately. Without going into too many details, right now I’m working overtime between a couple of different places and it’s making things (like blogging and getting a hold of people) very difficult. I do have some things that are happening (or I’m working hard at making happen, rather) that I’m quite excited about sharing with you. However, I believe in not jumping the gun and waiting until things are set solidly in place before sharing. (How embarrassing to have to retract exciting news!)
As well, I’ve been mulling over the idea of a different format for posts. I’ll be posting said change in post before the end of the weekend and see how I like it and whether or not it’ll stick.
