Wait! You don't have to!

I have a Diamond game tonight. I absolutely refuse to leave a baseball game early. It's a point of honor. So a late night means getting up to swim tomorrow will be tough. But, wait, who says I have to? Get up or swim. I can haz a day off. Why not?

So now I'm even more excited than usual about going to the game. New rule. On nights when I'm out late for any reason (you honestly don't need more than one hand for this count), I can skip my morning swim. 99% of days, I go to sleep and wake up eager to get into th epool. But, it's not a decision I make every day. I just do it. Once in a while, and nearly always after I've been out late the night before, in mid-swim, I think ... what in the hell am I doing? So now, I can go back to not thinking about it. I just know that no swims on those mornings.

Yes, I can swim at other times during the day but I rarely want to. Plus, I never know when it's too crowded. There are only 3 lanes so the 7th person waits. But, day swimming is still an option if I get desperate.

So there you have it. Beyond maximum gnashing over the minute. Also tomorrow is house cleaner day and an afternoon home baseball game. I reminded the housecleaner last week (afternoon games mean really really really hard for her to find parking) she said she would come at 8. I never know if that means she'll be here at 8 or she just thinks coming at 8 would be better but she'll be here at 10 per usual. I think I might make a trip down to the Renton Walmart tomorrow while she's here. Maybe.

I kept the air conditioner on all day yesterday and all night last night. It did fine. The bedroom is always going to be warmer but it was perfect sleeping temperature last night. It seems to do a superior job of maintaining a steady temperature and, therefore, using the very low (volume) cooling fan. When I woke up this morning I thought maybe it had kicked off during the night because I couldn't hear it from the bedroom. Turns out it's just (blessedly) quiet.
