Itâ€™s so cold outside that some of us are forced to wear jackets indoors!
Others were lucky enough to be born in a nice, thick fur coat.
And still others resort to fleece jackets, slippers, hot tea, and a warm bowl of oats.
I was up and at â€˜em so early â€“ well, for me â€“ and instead of plopping down on the couch and zoning out to recorded television, I worked. I set up a little station on the couch â€“ water, teapot, oatmeal, book, pen, sticky notes, water, and puppies â€“ and I got through nearly 100 pages of book editing before the Husband even got up. It felt so nice to be productive!
Then, I ate a peanut butter sandwich, pulled on my swimsuit, and hit the pool. When I arrived, I was a bit disappointed to realize a middle school swim meet was going on, but the pool staff had reserved a few lanes for passholders. Wahoo!
This meant, however, that I swam 1000 yards whilst surrounded by screaming parents and team mates. Every time Iâ€™d bring my face out of the water, Iâ€™d heard, â€œYEAHHHHHH! SWIM SWIM FASTER! GO GO GO!â€ Haha. I felt like I was in the competition! I overheard one girl yell to another, â€œEat my bubbles!â€ and nearly choked on pool water.
Still on a Mexican kickâ€¦ I had a corn tortilla with brown rice, refried beans, and salsa, plus a salad and orange.
Stay warm today!
