I mean ugh gross really. Cloudy and green.
My buddy Matt was there and we decided to chance it. As I was swimming I thought 'well, if it were a lake or the ocean, it wouldn't be clear...' But then I realized that all the fish had died, too. ugh. Just gross.
When we were done and leaving Matt quipped 'see you in the ER!' hahaha I am going to feel so stupid if I get sick from that pool.
Then I went to sit in traffic. Normally, I'm showered, dressed and on the road about 6:15. And that was the case today. But, normally at 6:15, the road is pretty darned clear. Today it was bumper to bumper for a good third of the trip. The entire trip took me about 3 times longer than usual.
There are several sets of railroad tracks between the gym and home. Today I had just cleared the final one when a freight train came by and stopped. The stop was longer than usual but at least I was on the good side of it. When I got home, I discovered on twitter that the stop was WAY longer than normal and had gummed up the works causing a backup that started even before the gym.
So my swim slimy and my ride home a lengthy mess but I did manage to dodge a pretty big bullet. Not so bad.
And, out of the shower, I managed to finger style my wet hair so that the back of the head situation isn't as glaring. I hope.
Today is house cleaner day. I'm guess she will be late and blame it on traffic. Maybe not. I have a load of stuff to take to Goodwill and then I'm not sure what I'll do to kill time til she's done. Maybe Trader Joe's. Maybe the book store. A local bus driver has written a book of essays about his route (Route 7) that I want to read. I also want to support the author so I'm happy to buy it. I just wish it was Kindlized. But, it's not. So book store it is.
Then home to a clean house. The laundry all got done yesterday so today I may sew or I may miniature or I may just watch junk tv and crochet. I don't have to decide now.
I do think I've made a dining chair decision. No chairs at all. I currently have two chairs that are uncomfortable. And, get in the way - they are too tall to see the TV over as well. So my new plan is to get rid of them and replace them with ottomans. Ottomen? I have two ottomans there now - 2 chairs, 2 ottomans. And when it's just me, I use one of the ottomans to sit on. So why not just get some more? They don't make the ones I have any more but I found a nice version - storage and casters and ordered one. If it works like I think it should, I'll order another so at least two will match.
Time to get crackin'!
