Missed a Nice Day
The phone rang at around 8:30 this morning. It was the school, calling me in to substitute. I rolled out of bed, fed the Boys and got ready at a fairly leisurely pace, mostly because I wasn't really needed until the afternoon session.
I still got there early enough to cover part of one of the morning classes, so I was able to give another teacher a little break from subbing. I might have been able to cut another 20 minutes off my time if I'd hurried, but that's not always a good thing when I have to take proper care of the Boys' needs for the day.
I stayed after school to go for a swim. I figure I need to take advantage whenever I can. With gas prices ever on the rise, I'm not too likely to drive all the way to the school just to swim very often.
I added two laps to my pattern today, with a set of six laps and a break, where I walked a lap instead of swimming, and then I added another six laps of swimming for twelve instead of ten. I felt fine and not really tired, so that's a good thing. I guess tomorrow will tell the story of how my knees felt.
By the time I got home, it was time to feed the horses, so that's what I did, deciding that I'd had enough exercise for the day.
I'm sure the Boys didn't mind. Food is always better than work any day.
