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 http://www.swimkidsaz.com/. 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!)
Rash
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!

Your body ailments sound like fun! Thanks for sharing! I remember Alyson complaining about the same things when she was life guarding all summer. Her hair continually smelled of cholrine (although you didn't mention that ailment). Have fun!
