I Should…

I should really learn to swim. My kids are becoming great swimmers, but I never really learned. I mean, I’m not in danger of drowning if I end up in the deep end of the hotel pool, but I also can’t promise that I won’t come up spluttering if my head accidentally goes under.

I’ve been thinking about this lately because I’ve been doing swim lessons with my toddler and I have to ask her to blow bubbles in the pool even though I don’t want to. It’s absurd. I should be more advanced than people who’ve only been alive for a couple of years.

I’ll confess: I looked up the adult beginner lessons before I began writing this and I was relieved to see that it had a waitlist. I sure didn’t put my name on the list though.

I am ridiculously self-conscious and embarrassed about my inability to swim. Maybe that’s something to overcome in the next year.
