Today was a fairytale
Well actually yesterday felt like a fairytale. I had a wonderful time at the Lake despite almost drowning. I jumped in not realizing the water so deep. But D and her friend saved my life. I coughed up a lung, put it back and continued to enjoy my day. I have to say ED was working overtime after I bought the bikini. I think the correct term is tankini. I looked awesome it.
I am posting a pictures of me posing in it. A few months ago, I would not have posted these pictures. Hell, I wouldn't swimsuit for that matter. Some major progress has been made and a little history. Yesterday, I felt like a swimsuit model. Stretched out on the deck, lounging in the lawn chair or just going out in the paddle boat. I have to admit I was freaked out a little about that. We're in the middle of the Lake. After a brutal week, it was nice just to kick back and relax. D cooked an awesome dinner. My contribution was witty banter and Beyer's Chocolate Cookie Dough ice cream. D make a casserole of summer veggies and cheese along with baked chicken with this awesome herb gravy. I ate until I almost popped. And then had ice cream. It was a wonderful day.
Today, my chest hurts from all the water I took in and working almost 70 hours has caught up with me. I can feel the exhaustion. My body just aches. For lunch, I wolfed a microwave meal and used the remaining time to sleep. Best 45 minutes of my life. I have tried to make this week as light as possible so I have some home time. Last week, I all I did was work and come home and sleep. I can't and will not continue at this pace. It's not healthy. Plus, I really need to take a beginner's class to get more acclimated with water.
I love my job. I love the people I work with at my job. But there are other things that are not going as smoothly with the job. They are not affecting me but I hate to see my co-workers so miserable and sad. It makes me sad and mad. But at least yesterday was a fairytale filled involving a pretty tankini, wonderful fellowship and just being able to be Silly Girl.
