Just Keep Swimming
So this is us just yesterday at a wedding. Recently we have been out of our minds busy! We went to a Christenson family reunion in Indiana which was so much fun. We also went to Boise and Burley to represent the brand Ed works for, Pearl Izumi (you should all buy their running/biking shoes and apparel) and to be with friends. Ed went cliff jumping which I did not approve of. We went to Seven Peaks. We saw the movie Inception which is amazingly good. We watch at least two episodes of Friends a day because we have no cable and we put it on before we go to sleep (we started from the beginning and are already on season 7 woo hoo we are addicted). We went to this wedding yesterday. And last but certainly not least....we started a masters swim class. DO NOT UNDERSTIMATE US. We can conquer the world (well at least that's how I felt after the first few nights). Let's start from the beginning of my swimming career: my mom put me with all the other cousins on the Jefferson Township swim team in 4th, 5th, and 6th grade and I hated every second of it. We were the dolphins, I was slow but graceful, and I did a potty dance before every single race. Now jump forward nine years: Ed and I are taking a masters swim class together at a rec center and I swam two miles last Thursday! Take that Jefferson Township! Ya, I feel pretty proud but don't let that statistic fool you....I felt like crying, cussing, and puncing my coach in the crotch for making me do that, but I covered it up by singing in my head the little tune from Finding Nemo, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming". At least now I can say I conquered something I never thought I would. We are going back tonight and preparing for the worst, luckily I have an amazing husband who gives me a ten minute lift-me-up-praising-compliment-speech every time on the ride home from practice. He's cool.
