SNOW DAY in Paramus!
I am still so driven by the possibility that life as we plan it comes to halt, if snow is coming I have trouble sleeping the night before and last night I didn’t sleep much knowing that if I didn’t get to gym early, I would miss my swim time and I have been salivating for #5 in the new pool. Could I move off the couch, out of the kitchen, into a shower, dress and be out on the roads before 8:30, before the snow?
It wasn’t pretty or fun but I was out and in the car and actually early,very early for the aqua class that no one knew for sure if it would even happen. So not wasting time, I took an open lane and started my laps, slowly finding my groove and ignoring the snow beginning to cover the ground outside. Unintimidated by the swimmers nearby I kept my own pace and with a few more laps to go, a woman of importance enter the pool area from the side door and yes, she would be teaching the class. Did I have the energy for another hour in the pool?
I finished 10 laps and moved to a small group of women ready to plunge with me. All good. We used weights designed for the water, the noodle, the pad.
Almost 2 hours in the pool and my legs could barely hold me up on the way out to the locker room.
And yes, it was snowing and the roads were beginning to ice and I was hoping that the trip back to Paramus would not be a nail bitter.
And it wasn’t.
In fact, it was a perfect snow day to experiment with my new crock pot. Pot Roast for dinner! Who’s joining us?
I have a Shakespeare date tomorrow night with my friend James to see Richard 111. Generally things aren’t canceled in the city but now that we have a mayor who takes snow and its removal seriously, I’m wondering if I will even find a place to park. And I’m wondering if I will be with Tara and her Slicers tomorrow…
For now, let it keep snowing. It’s been a great day so far.
Who else is enjoying a snow day today?
