I won Gold!!!

Today was my last leisure weekday in the pool. I go back to work tomorrow. I am sad that my summer is over, but oh so happy to get back in a routine. I do better with structure and routine.

So when I am in the pool my imagination runs rampant. Some days I am a mermaid. Some days I am lost at sea. Some days I am a very wealthy lady of leisure lying in the pool, waiting on my hot cabana boy to bring me my drink. Why yes, I do have a great imagination.

I guess since this is Olympic season, my imagination has been geared as being an Olympian. One day I was a synchronized swimmer. One day I was a gymnast on the balance beam. Today I was swimmer. I won the Gold. My pool is 33 ft long and i went down and back...so I guess that makes me the gold winner of the 20 meter race :)

Play time is over. Back to the land of wearing a bra and shoes...so sad.

I'm with you on the routine. I hate change...so part of me dreads the upcoming gear shift of everyone back in school in two weeks - but being locked into it all is good for me getting more done.

You must be starting before the kids do, right? Kids here start on the 13th. When do they start where you are?

Part of going back to school is so exciting but parts are so hard. Holidays always go too quickly. xx
