Getting my sea legs back.

If only I had known. Back in February, I didn’t have time to get to the pool. I was trying to squeak out a workout or two each week, but it had been hard to do that when my calendar was so full already. Going into March, I didn’t even make it to the pool […]

Time to write.

I have had a couple of people ask how the book is coming along. It had been developing well until 2 weeks ago.  Then, with the kids home and having to stay home, it took some schedule adjustments to get started up again.  Now, I have some time to write. Back in October, I decided […]

The Blahs.

It’s dark and rainy this Saturday morning.  Not a whole lot is going on in the house right now but a snoring dog.  It’s been rainy and gloomy lately, and my mood has followed suit. A few weeks ago, I started having issues with my back.  It was high time, if you ask me.  I’ve […]

Fog and coffee.

It’s Christmas Eve morning.  There is a thick blanket of fog outside – no beautiful, fluffy snow this year.  Good thing Santa has Rudolph. No one is awake in the house yet, just me and the dog.  I’m just sitting here drinking coffee before the chaos begins.  Today, we start celebrating Christmas with family.  Soon, […]

FOMO. It’s real.

When I first saw someone posting about FOMO on social media, I had no idea what they were talking about.   I actually had to search for the definition because I was curious. Fear of missing out.  It’s a real thing. Back in the day, before the internet and social media, no one had any idea […]

Having fun in the pain cave.

It’s been a cold December already.  We dipped into the single digits earlier this year than in the past.  I’ll admit it, I really wasn’t ready.  Thankfully, we didn’t stay there too long, so I can’t complain. We’re also getting closer to the holidays, so there’s no racing that’s pending right now.  There’s no training […]

Just keep swimming….

Makes you think of Dory, doesn’t it? Last year at about this time, I saw something interesting in my social media feed.  Some of my friends/acquaintances had done a swim challenge.  I had just done my first swim meet in a long time, and had been looking for more events to do in the pool.  […]

Learning from my mistakes.

The older I get, the easier it is to admit when I’m wrong.  The past few years, I have continued to learn more about myself through my interactions with others.  I have also learned that spending quiet time alone really helps me focus better. As the kids get another year older, and I slow down […]

My Multisport Girl.

I know I’ve written about my 9 year old before, but I have to boast a little for her again.  You see, she is such a driven kid.  Nothing stands in her way.  Once she sets her sights on something, that’s it. It’s just a matter of time before she achieves her goal, and then […]

Spectator – sort of….

Usually, July is my craziest month of the year.  I always have way too much going on and my anxiety level goes through the roof.  This year was no different. If you have been following my blogs, you probably have a feel for what I’m talking about.  A lot of things go down in July. […]
