I have some catching up to do oh yeah I do. Let’s see, we attended a baby shower party, celebrated Billy’s Birthday, went to Red Hawk Casino to celebrate Michele’s Birthday, and attended the Mother Teresa Stamp Unveiling Ceremony. Somewhere in there I went to PE and my swimming classes.
I figured out prior to taking the swim class that I can’t turn my dang head to breath while swimming. Now that kind of put a damper on the deal – turn head get electrical shock down to my toes and water up my nose . I so did not wish to be doomed to staying in the shallow end and spending the whole class doing aerobic water exercises. I thought about it and asked if I could use a snorkel and the instructor said she did not see a problem with it. So I look so dorky with the goggles, snorkel, and nose plug – augh! Seriously -DORK! I stared out without the nose plug thingy but started using one after I forgot not to breath with my nose while snorkeling away – gag – cough – choke . … After three classes I managed in poor form to make 6 laps!
Being in the pool is super. I can work on my balance and if I fall I just go splash. The weightless feeling makes me almost feel normal.
So here are a couple of videos covering some of the mentioned moments in my life this past few weeks:
