recession, swimming, snuggies
the weather this weekend was so gross. is so gross.
and my project is over at the end of the week which means i'll soon be one of the many trying to file an unemployment claim on a site that won't stop crashing.
so now we're full-on going into recession/depression mode. i gave myself a french pedicure. i plan on eating out less. cutting down on alcohol consumption. and i've been working out at emily's sweet new apt so i'm saving money on a gym. she needs to get in shape before her wedding so it's a good opportunity for my main drinking/debauchery partner and me to be healthier, cook meals, etc. instead of going out and binge eat/drink like we'd usually do. my partner in crime is now my partner in fitness. or something.
the swimming thing is getting better. i got a nose clampy thing to keep the water from getting all up in my nose. i'm still learning how to turn my head to breathe without trying to lift it too much out of the water. i guess i just feel that when i turn my head, that i'm not turning it enough and that instead of air, i'll take in a giant mouthful of water. basically, it's all still very unnatural. and my arms are still flaily. practice makes perfect. i get less and less scared each time. so strange to think of myself being scared of swimming when i know i like being in water so much.
kate and ant and i kept making fun of those snuggies that you see commercials for like every 5 seconds if you're watching cable television. we thought they all looked cultish. like big-ass crazy scientology robes or something. so wouldn't you know that anthony's parents actually get kate a snuggie for christmas (these people have a history of terrible gifts). i'm still laughing just thinking of her on the couch with it.
and i updated my damn links down there. i hate getting into my template. it's confusing. disorienting. but 90% of the people there had stopped blogging or changed blog addresses. so i give a big thumbs up to jon, cadiz and becky for being consistent! yay!
