Since I didn't get to the pool yesterday I woke up this morning with my only plan being to lay out at the pool. I got there at 10am and ended up staying 4 hours. It was a perfect day for laying out and I had the pool to myself until 1pm. For a while I floated on my back and just watched the sky and listened to myself breathing. It kind of reminded me of when I would go scuba diving and the only noise you hear is yourself breathing. It has an amazing calming affect. However, 4 hours in the sun may have been a bit much. My face feels really hot and I can't really have the A/C on because I keep getting the chills. I don't remember the last time I was this tan and I keep getting comments about how tan I am. Being tan does somehow make me feel better about myself.
One of the things that I have been doing while at the pool is reading. I used to love to read and would read a book a week, but the last few years I have struggled to complete a book. It feels good to escape in a book and forget about my worries once again. I think I may head out to Barnes & Noble this weekend and find a couple other good books to read. Speaking of the weekend...is anyone else as excited as I am that it's a short week?
