This morning at the Y (or possibly as early as early January), the YMCA changed their start time for the water aerobics class to 8:30-9:30am (rather than 8-9am) with still the 1 lap lane available while they bounce around in the other 5. I got there today, assuming that the 4 lanes would be available in a few minutes, but found out otherwise. Luckily there was only one other elderly lady in the lane, so I was able to split with her, and did some nice easy swimming which is what my body needed. Once the lanes opened up, I went for it.

In other news...our house rebuilding is coming along nicely. The beam is now up and secure in the living room, and everything is cleaned up, so now it feels more like home again, rather than a construction site. Next we'll be getting back to the upstairs bathroom, where this whole thing started over 2 months ago!!
Some pics of the process:
My daughter took this picture of me when I was ripping out the sheetrock in the upstairs bathroom wall. I guess I'm losing my hair!
My father, the brains of the operation, jacking up a temporary beam in the 2nd floor to hold the roof.
One of the many treasures found in the flooring and ceilings of the house. This is a Seattle Times paper from 1925. We found many complete papers from Seattle and Wenatchee from 1925 and 1926. And bidders???? We take cash money.
