Swimming, Life, and Other Stuff!

Swimming in the flood plain!

Rate this Entry
On my way to Noblesville for practice this morning the thought occurred to me that I could just park the car and swim across some of the flooded fields. The water (measured by the submerged fence tops) had to be 5' at least. I could have enjoyed an open-water swim, saved gas, and returned home much faster than I did.

I had a bad head-ache all night probably due to the margarita I had with my mexican dinner last night.
I liked the flow of the swim we did this morning and by the end of the swim my head was fine and I was back to 100%. Swimming is pretty amazing for hang-overs!

Okay I'm off to the back room to do my mindful (mindless) yoga!

    I can't drink margaritas anymore. They always make me feel dreadful later even though I love them. Is this another problem with getting old?

    It may be. I have felt a bit yuk all day. I think I may give up drinking altogether! It's not worth it.

    I've given up drinking since about a year or two after college...really it seems to be just a college thing...so I've been about 10 years without alcohol, and just look at all the $$$ I've saved...though I'm still living paycheck to paycheck.

    No doubt about saving money, margarita's cost $5-$8.50 in most cantina's! I rarely ever have more than 1 glass of wine/margarita at a time but it seems like that's now enough to cause me a headache!
