On Tuesday, we had some excitement. I was kicking a little after our practice was done. All of a sudden, there was a large flash and then all the lights went out. Apparently, there was a power substation that malfunctioned. Other than the emergency lights, the campus was dark (This included the basketball court where a varsity game was about to start). My son claims that he was jumping in the pool and was able to switch directions mid-jump to avoid getting wet.

I have continued to swim. I just haven't had a lot of time to blog. I did manage to remember most of the main sets from the last 1.5 weeks. I can hold a pace on most things (although pretty slow). I am still attempting to balance everything in my life. This is happening somewhat successfully. Last week was hard since my husband was away for a conference. I did manage to get to one day of the November Classic which I will make a separate entry for. All in all, I am continuing to take one day at a time and setting small goals for each week.
