Splish Splash

There's a golf resort nearby with a big pool, and I had been wanting to get a pool pass...but some mental resistance was stopping me from even going and looking at the pool, let alone getting a day pass and doing a trial swim. Then I heard my old water aerobics class from a couple of years ago would now be meeting at that pool! What a great way for me to get over my anxiety. It'll be like having a bunch of old friends holding my hand.

They had been trying to sort out the insurance and I just got a call that the class is a go, starting next Tuesday.

So not only is it dirt cheap to go through my class as opposed to buying a pool pass, only $25/mo, but I now have two weekly times I'm scheduled to be there so I won't blow it off, and I know my friends will be there too. Talk about a win/win/win.

And I suppose if I love it enough to go more than two days per week, I can get a pool pass too.

Ooh. I used to do water aerobics! That's fun. And $25 is dirt cheap lucky you!

The rec department classes are dirt cheap in general; they're sort of a municipal service. I wish they did more for adults. They have tons of stuff for kids.

Here too. For adults we seem to have lots of quit smoking and lose weight through hypnosis... I should check it out again, though maybe there's something new...

Lose weight through hypnosis sounds like a fun one! I would probably go to that.

I offered some writing workshops through ours a few years ago but I didn't get enough signups to run the class.

It's always nice to have some motivation to push. It's too easyto get "busy" and let it go. Have fun.

No kidding, knowing everyone's going to say, "Where were you?" if you miss a day makes a big difference.

It used to be held next door to my day job, and it was a really amazing way to say, "No, I can't work late. I have an obligation," back when I had a supervisor who liked to mess with me.

Funny how things change. Now it's my ticket out of the house, so I don't start speaking in crazy cat lady language.

So is this an indoor pool? It's nice to have people to meet up with -- it's a good motivation.

Yeah, the only time to swim outdoors in Wisconsin is July and August. Maybe June if you're really antsy but it's usually not too pleasant and involves a good deal of shrieking! :-0

I think it'll do me good to talk to some human beings (verbally, in person) a couple times a week!

I saw that it started the next Tuesday, and I couldn't picture it being in an outdoor pool. Brrr.

Socializing is important. It's good to have people to chat with and good to get different perspectives.

That worked out well!

It slipped into place a bit too easily, so I'm somewhat leery.
