I have had some breakthrough in my swimming recently. I am working on body positioning and efficiency in the water. Occasionally I count how many strokes it takes to swim one length of the pool. Last week I went from a best of 23 strokes down to 17.
Last night Brian and I swam together. It was his first time in the water in 5 weeks. He still smoked me in our sprints. Grrr.
I am going through the entire house collecting stuff for a garage sale this weekend. I love de-cluttering!
I am really excited about some new systems we have in place for saving money on groceries. I will be sharing them in the upcoming days/weeks.
I recently got a prescription for birth control pills filled. I can't bring myself to start taking them. I guess partly it's because I wouldn't really mind if I got pregnant. But mostly I just don't want to be putting more chemicals into my body. It's the side-effects I'm really worried about. Nausea, vomiting, headaches, weight gain, dizziness, and on and on. Um, no thanks. Anyone have anything enlightening to share with me about that?
Sorry, Dad, for that last paragraph.
