As we speak I'm cuddled up by this:
|blogger is currently being stubborn is rotating my pictures....|
And Bill is at my house turning on my heat, opening cabinets, wrapping pipes and letting water drip. We may see single digits tonight and to avoid a disaster at the vacant home 1 mile down the road he's taking care of me. Sweet boy didn't want me to have to get out in this. I don't think he's necessarily HAPPY about having to go over there but he is going none the less and I love him for it.
So until he gets back and we can enjoy a day cuddled up on the couch together watching movies I thought I'd update y'all.
Last night I had a 2500 yd swim scheduled. I headed to the gym after work to get it in before we went to dinner with Bill's dad and brothers. I ALWAYS rush to get changed and get in the pool b/c the 24 hour fitness by my work only has a 2 lap lane pool. If I get there too late - well - it's too late.
I hop in and start swimming.
500 warm up. *check*
6 x50's kick - alternating with kick board and then dolphin *check*
500 pull with buoy and fins *check*
1300 yds done....
I planned on swimming 1000yds for time. Ready.set.freestyle.....
I count my yds in 50 yd increments. soooo 20 x 50 = 1000.
I was turning around to finish my 8th 50 ... half way back I get hit in the head with the lane divider. I didn't know that aqua class was starting at 6:30.
I popped out of the water - thinking I had gotten in her way and this (I will exclude the profanity) woman copped attitude with me. Here's our dialogue.
Me: "Oh my goodness - I'm so sorry"
Aqua bitch: "Um we have class"
Me" "Sure no problem - what time does it start"
Aqua bitch: "The internet says 6:15"
Me: "OK well I'm sorry to be in your way, are you sure it's 6:15 b/c it's already 6:20 and I don't see your instructor"
Aqua bitch: "I saaaaaaaaaid 6:15"
* At this point another lady jumps in and says "Actually we start at 6:30"*
Me: "Great I'll be out as soon as your teacher gets here - give me 10 minutes until your class starts and I"ll be more than happy to get out"
*SPLASH, SPLASH SPLASH, .... ALLISON ALMOST DROWNS*
Aqua bitch #2 - jumps, literally got air and jumped off the side into the "deeper" end of the pool - almost on top of me
Again - I pop out of the water........
Me: "I'm so sorry was I in your way?"
Aqua bitch 2: "No - We told you we have aqua class"
Me; IRRITATED AS ALL GET OUT: "and i said I would get out as soon as your instructor got here which is not for another 5 minutes."
Aqua bitch 2; mumbles something under her breath
Me: Starting swimming with a little extra kick/splash
Thanks for the open water training in the pool with the waves and such...
18........ instructor shows up....dammit I only had 100 yds left.
Swim: 2400 yds...... despite the aqua bitches.
