Today was the last day for the community swimming pool. Despite cloudy skies and temps in the mid 70's, I set the alarm to get up early so I could take Diva for one last dip. The water was surprisingly warm. Since the pool was mostly empty, the lifeguards opened up the diving board area for open swimming. I remember that from when I was a kid. It was pretty exciting stuff back then. Judging by the reaction of the kids today, it still is.
I can't believe summer is winding down. What happened to all my plans, LOL? You may have noticed the lack of activity on the little yoga girl at the top of my blog. Not exactly sure what happened there. I was planning to lose about thirty pounds but I got to about eight and stalled out. I do know that part of it was the little voice in my head, stressing that maybe something was wrong with me, maybe the cancer was back, this was too easy. Yada yada yada. I *know* I'm fine, and I *know* the weight loss is a good thing, a healthy goal, but I think I'm going to have to take baby steps so I can work through it. The good news is, I haven't gained back what I lost after I stalled out so when I begin again, I'll be that much closer to my goal.
The kids head back to school in about a week. I'd like to do some sort of end-of-summer thing but I don't think that will happen. The nephews weren't here this weekend, and next weekend I have to work. Walker has been working seven days a week, too. Bro's vehicle broke down last week so we're swapping cars these days. I guess we're lucky that we all work different shifts. Last week was a tough one; this week will probably be more of the same. I guess you need these times, so you know when you've got it good.
