This and that

Tuesday: Swim 2,400 yards

  • My sister is a scuba diver and lent me some fantastic neoprene booties that will keep my feet downright toasty in the lake (57 degrees this afternoon). As a bonus, her Size 12's will double as flippers if I decide to kick.
  • I went to bed at 10 sharp all last week and am transitioning to 9 sharp this week. I am sleeping more hours but not feeling especially well-rested or gung-ho just yet. I think it will come.
  • Swimming felt pretty good today, but I was a little dismayed to run into Jerkface there again swimming laps. (No, we did not have to share a lane. Or speak. Or make eye contact.) I am usually a pretty nice person and should probably stop calling him Jerkface, but I don't know his name and wouldn't tell you if I did. Just think of it as his special blog name.
  • I did a pretty good job today of not thinking about that thing I'm not supposed to think about, except that my husband keeps insisting that it's time to start making a list of things I need to bring to it. I'm afraid that might require some carefully controlled thinking.


  1. Just mentally put MH in charge of all the getting there logistics, and then do whatever he says, and you don't have to think about it at all. Did you bring the booties to the pool to try them out? You can also call the one guy JF if that makes you feel better. :)

  2. I hope you do practice with the booties on before you head out West.
