How does a curmudgen celebrate 4th
I ended up going swimming with the kids. I was going to bail out and I actually said I was not going.. but then I thought about it and decided I should.
The pool was free which was an extra bonus. It was a fun time. The boy is really getting good at swimming. I taught him how to back float and tread water well. We swam out to the 9-ft depth and he even did a lap. I was really proud of him. He was exhausted at the end of the lap though. We were "racing".. except I just floated on my back until he got close then did a couple strokes to get ahead.
While out in the 9ft area he told me to do a hand-stand. So I have to go ahead and show off.. I go to the bottom and get my hand-stand going and all of the sudden I pull a muscle in my leg. I mean swimming is supposed to be relaxing, non-stress activity for the body right? From the responses I have had to people I have told this to I assume I am the only person to ever pull a leg muscle swimming.
I was a little pissed. The boy stood in line to pass the deep swimming test. Pretty much they let everyone pass who does not drown in the deep end. Unfortunately the boy got some cunt who was a stickler for form and she failed him because she thought he was stretching too far in his crawl stroke. Unfuckingbelievable.
He was totally bummed out and called her a few names. I told him I was proud of his swimming though. He really did a great job. I was impressed.
Once I got home I crashed and fell asleep. I then had to pick the Au Pair up at 12:30. She was coming back from the Fireworks in Boston. I ended up being wired and not getting to sleep until 3AM... which made my arrival time today somewhere around 11AM. Blah.
Josie got kidnapped by hippy bikers this weekend. Sounds like fun. Peace.
