I bet you’re wondering where I have been lately. Well, I am writing, and during my writing time my blog is off limits. I have also been spending a bit more morning time with Amoeba — well, except for this week since he is 3000 miles away — although we do still talk several times a day. I’ve also been doing a bit more reading — and I have joined the gym.
I am taking water aerobics classes and I love them. I would be a bit happier if the water was a couple of degrees warmer, but overall I am pleased. The class has improved my balance and agility a lot.
I think that class is also helping me combat my winter blues. It gives me something to look forward to — and it picks me up afterward. Plus, we have a pretty large group and do a lot of joking and laughing — which is good exercise, too!
The other night in water aerobics class we were trying to tightrope walk on Styrofoam noodles. Talk about a riot. Walking I couldn’t do, but I did finally manage to balance on one. One of the guys walked from one of of his noodle to the other, but he cheated by taking it to the shallow end so it wasn’t floating at all!
At any rate, trying to force a Styrofoam under water, get our feet on it, and then stand up was hysterically funny. The noodles, of course, wanted to float and they’d pop out of the water, often taking feet with them, turning the person standing on them end over end. One couldn’t help but laugh at the sight — which pretty much guaranteed a reciprocal loss of balance and another spectacular fall.
So, I have been busy with other things, but that doesn’t mean I have forgotten you. I am just out in search of life and something fun to blog about. Stay tuned!
