So like normal its been a long time since my last post. 

I’ve got a little free time to kill this afternoon so I thought… “why not”. 

What have  I been up to lately…… ummm not much.  Basically working lots.  Pulling lots of long days and dodging the people that I don’t get along with.  I’m getting pretty good at that last one… or at least pretending I get along with them.  Who’s the fool in this situation… me or them?  The world may never know.

I’ve recently taken up swimming.  No I’m not out on the beach having a grand ole time.  I’m at the Y kickin’ it with the old folks.  My leg pain has been unbearable the last few months and I’ve tried multiple prescription pain killers that do nothing for me.  I still want to run like no body’s business but know that I can’t.  I decided the only exercise that wouldn’t bother my leg more would be swimming.  I started swimming a week ago.  I’ve been 3 times now and plan on going  3 times a week.  Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.  Sometimes Friday gets moved to Thursday because of work.  The YMCA has “4th graders learn to swim” from 12-3 every day.  Why 4th graders need to learn I’ll never know and why they aren’t in school from 12-3 every day still grinds my gears.  From 4-6 is “Chapman afterschool something er ather” So I’ve got this nice tiny incontinent window from 3-4 that I go swim with the old people who are a HOOT to watch by the way.  This one lady doesn’t look like she’s moving and then you look away and look back and she’s 1/2 way down the pool! I laugh every time.

I’ve also recently joined the church Choir.  Not many people know that.  I’m just trying it right now.  I started last Wednesday and then we sang in church on Sunday.  We meet Wednesday nights at 6:45 in Salina.  This means however that I’m driving to Salina at least 3 times a week now.  Not sure that’s a fantastic idea but it’ll work for now.

I guess that’s about all.  I’ve been trying to memorize some verses with a friend starting from A and going to Z a verse for each letter.  I’m failing though. I’ve also started reading “A Lady in Waiting”  which is a womans devotional book to draw her closer to God while she’s living the single life.  It by no means, means that I’m waiting for some guy…come on we all know my views on marriage.  Anyway… that’s about it I guess.  I’m off to the post office and then to go swimmin’ with the oldies…. not to be confused with sweatin’ with the oldies….
