My motivation factor has been low lately, both physically, creatively, and in the home. Today, I stepped out of that comfort zone and made myself do something! I took my brand new suit and goggles and went swimming after my cycle class. I was able to swim 1/2 mile! I know freestyle is not my thing, I was expending lots of energy and getting nowhere, real fast. But I felt my breast stroke was sleek (or as sleek as someone who has not been swimming breast stroke in many, many years). YES! I feel loose, sore, comfortable, and psyched! Maybe I will be able to do the bay swim.
On another note, I was knitting the other night while waiting for Audrey at theatre. One of the other mom's came in and said to her son, "Oh look, Miss Dana is preparing to get old." I said, "Actually, I'm keeping myself young by teaching myself something new." First time in my life I've had a comeback! Getting old, my foot.
