New Job

After four/five months of searching I have finally found a new job. It's far from ideal, but for where I'm at in my life right now, I think it's pretty cool. The job is at a year round indoor swim gym. They primarly teach toodlers how to swim and it's amazing what they can do. With just a few basic techniques they can get one year old children to float and swim well enough to save themselves if something were to happen to them. By four the children can swim the entire length of the pool in a very fluid freestyle. You can check it out here Unfortunetly, the job comes with some draw backs. It's hours are such that it doesn't allow me to quite Kids Corner because starting out I only can teach 4 hours a day (after time I can do work outside the pool; office stuff) It may be only 4 hours but it is plenty of time for the water to do a number on your skin. Aside from totally drying me out it has also caused
Body hairloss (arms, and everywhere else there is fine hair, weird!)
Permently, semi pruned fingers
Skin that forever smells of chlorine
And a termendous amount of itching
Thankfully my body is begining to adjust, but I'm still wondering what is in that water!

Holidays are over

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. Dave and I had so much fun spending our third Christmas together. Aside from the fact that we were fighting fevers, coughs, and stuffy noses all Christmas Eve and the following 3 days, we had a great time with family. It was so wonderful to see Scott and Lonica again, even if it ment sitting in the airport parking lot for 2 hours.
I'm looking forward to the new year, even though I have no idea what it will bring, but I guess that's what I like about it.
