just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.

we all know that i love the movie finding nemo. well, i never realized how much i would use it. haha. this week, hell week, we pt in the morning and swim in the afternoon. 1st day-tread water for 2 minutes,float for 5...this is just in a swim suit. then u put on the flight suit and boots and do the same. easy day! day 2-flight suit, boots, gloves and this vest that feels like it has some sort of weights in it. tread 2 minutes float 6 minutes. little harder, but got thru it. day 3-flight suit, boots, gloves, heavy vest and helmet. tread 2 minutes float 7 minutes. that ended the tread and float session i believe. lol. i can float, we have established that. today we had to jump off of the tower in flight suit and boots then swim 15 yards underwater. got it on the first try....thank you, thank you! the old one still has it! haha. then we had to learn how to use our pants as a floatation device. it was pretty cool actually. tomorrow is a basic stroke test then friday we do our mile swim. i believe i can do this. we will be in a flight suit i know, but im not sure about the boots. hopefully just the flight suit. this is such a random blog, but i was extremely bored. lol.

so how is everyone else doing? i would love to hear from people. it makes me smile really big when i see that i have comments. really! gives me something to do. ooohhhh! and i recently bought the movie amazing grace. it has the video for amazing grace/ my chains are gone..on the special features part. its really an interesting movie. heartbreaking actually. but it is $5 at the walmart if you wanna check it out. lol. wow...okay, im stopping with all of this nonsense. i have to go eat!!!!! BIG GIRL HUNGRY! haha. hope that everyone has a blessed day!
