Swimming and Ice Cream

I swam one mile today. I've been working up to it for awhile, adding two laps each time I hit the pool. Today I was supposed to swim 32 laps, I think, but there was no one else swimming laps. Usually the lap lane gets crowded toward the end of my Wednesday morning swim and I can't wait to get out of there after hitting my weekly goal. But this week, I figured, what the hell, and just kept swimming. 36 laps = 1 mile. Boo-yah!

Now for something completely different: On the rare occasions that Pebbles eats something she likes (i.e., ice cream), she finds it appropriate to say "Mmm." On every single bite. Here is Pebbles eating ice cream: "Mm. Mm. Mm. Mm. Mm...."

It's gonna be a fun summer. Boo-yah!

So, I'm checking out the BlogHer stories, as I'm apt to do, and I read another one of your posts. Only this time, I look at the sidebar for more than one second. I actually know you. I used to work at The Chronicle. (See, I even remember to capitalize "The," so I must have worked there.) Anyway, you may or may not remember me. I did the media and public relations gig. I left nearly two years ago. Love "The Longest Winter Ever" post. Hope it warms up soon enough. Enjoy reading your stuff. --Patty

Kudos to you for your swimming abilities. I can swim, in poor form, maybe fifteen feet before I start sinking.

The "Mmmm" thing sounds cute :)
