I wish I could take the Ballard gym and the West Seattle gym and toss them in a blender and pour out the perfect gym. It would be as close as West Seattle with a pool like Ballards with the lack of crowds like West Seattle. It wouldn't stink like West Seattle but also wouldn't have the No Towels For You rule like Ballard. For now I'll just bitch.

But, at least there were no crowds this morning.

I've had some digestive issues yesterday and today and I can't help but wonder if it's not due to that disgusting pool water on Sunday. Probably not but I'm going to think so anyway.

This weekend the 50 yard outdoor pool opens for a few hours on Saturday, Sunday and Monday but it looks like it's going to be too warm to make it worth the trip. The trip to the pool is not trivial. There is precious little parking and the bus service from here is a mess. If you do happen to get a parking spot, the walk from the car to the pool is a mile with a big hill. You go down the hill on the way to the pool and so my entire swim, I'm worried about getting back up the damn thing. BUT, if it's rainy and cool (the pool is heated), then it won't be crowded and I might give it a shot. If it's 80 degrees and sunny like the forecast says it will be... not worth the effort.

I broke down and sent an email off to my financial guy asking him to look for an easy/smart place to cash in some investments and send me $5,000 to bulk up my rainy day fund sometime in the next few months. This was after it dawned on me that the next tax payment is in June. Whew.

The house cleaner is due this morning. I think, due to the aforementioned digestive issues, it's better I just stay in while she cleans today. Hopefully she won't be too late and she won't linger. I do have a fabulous surprise for her. When ljtourist was on his recent road trip, he happened on a Bosnian restaurant in Middle Of The Country. He picked up Bosnian treats for Amira. She's going to have a fit when I give them to her today. I can't wait. (I can't believe he happened on a Bosnian restaurant. And remembered my house cleaner was from Bosnia. AND went to the trouble to pick out and pick up these treats for her. Just the nicest thing ever.)

And speaking of pictures. I really wish Google was more amenable to letting me use the photos I store there in other places, like here. ertai seems to have no trouble using Google photos in his journal lately so maybe I should try again. This is a test. I'm going to leave it here for a week or so to make sure it doesn't turn into a white circle with a minus sign.

I get twitchy about Flickr's future. My phone uploads everything automagically to both but I feel better about Google's long term prospects. (And, yes, I totally get that at least Flickr and maybe Google 'own' my photos. I don't care.)

I never did get to cleaning up the sewing room yesterday. I guess I'll go do that now.
