At least that is what I feel like, that I and about thirty other older people are doing for one hour.
This is much prettier than a photo of me in a swimsuit
Yes, we have an instructor who stands by the pool and shows us exercises to do, but when you translate those exercises into things we can do in the pool, I imagine that it isn't pretty from where he is standing.
Nevertheless, I know I am getting a workout because I am exhausted when I get home.
I seem to be flailing about with other things too. I finally found some curtains for my living room window. Who knew it would be so hard to find light beige 95" curtains. I searched online for several days and then Saturday I schlepped over to the Pottery Barn in Lenox Square to purchase some that I had found online.
I know it was at least 300 degrees outside so by the time I found a place to park, walked through the mall, and walked down the stairs at the Pottery Barn I was ready to take anything.
Apparently I did just take anything, because after reversing everything I did in the previous paragraph, but carrying a heavy bag, when I got them home they were too long (96") and the wrong color.
Definitely flailing about.
The next day was another 300 degree day, but I set out anyway to return the drapes. There was a Bed, Bath, and Beyond nearby so I decided to go there. There they were, the exact boring light beige curtains I was looking for on sale, 95", and I had a coupon for an extra 20% off.
Not flailing about as badly that day.
Now I am waiting for Joseph to come and hang them for me. Joseph and Ben are the maintenance men here and they have been so helpful hanging things for me. I of course have done all of the pictures myself, but I needed someone to hang my plate rack, a couple of things in the kitchen, and my curtain rods because no one wants me to hang from the ceiling.
It won't be long before I can start to share photos of my new place.
Even with all of the flailing about, I love it.
