I am having a great time. I even went to water aerobics today!! The pool isn't deep like the one I am used to at the Y in Billings, but it was 5 ft. and I was able to get a pretty good work out. I was worn out after 55 minutes. They have it for an hour, but I was a little late getting there. They have a morning class at 9 a.m. and an evening class at 5:30 p.m. The classes at Monday through Thursday and I guess they are a little different each day. The instructor asked me if I knew any exercises she didn't do. Of course, I couldn't think of any except the bunny hop or dolphin kick. The pool here is from wading to 5 ft. and I had to drive 25 minutes to get there. But it was totally worth it!! I may go again this week. It really felt good and maybe I will sleep better tonight. I am watching Ella and we are having fun. I took her outside, we played on the sun porch with balls, we had crackers and koolaid and now she is playing with a purse and some barbie cars. And to think Nicole was worried I wouldn't be okay with her!! She said before she left, " I am leaving you with my most difficult child. " I told her not to worry and I was right. We are fine!! She didn't even cry when she realized that Nicole was gone. Thanks in part to my cat. We were playing with him when Nicole left. She loves that cat!! As do the other kids. Of course, he is a lovable cat and loves attention. He is enjoying all the sun light in the bedroom we are staying in and the sun streaming in during the day. We covered up the couch in that room, so we don't have to vacuum it off. Ella knocked over his food yesterday, so I had to clean that up, but that is the extent of accidents in that room. She really looks at the litter box, but so far I have been able to convince her it is not to touch! Well, Nicole should be home with the older kids pretty soon and I need to set the table. Our dinner smells really good. Moose roast, carrots, potatoes, celery and onion. I think I am also going to make some gravy. I had a really lite lunch and I have been munching on celery and radishes all afternoon, so I can hardly wait for them to come home!!! So far I have done really well with my fat grams and calories. One day I was over, but other than that I have been under on both.
Have a nice night. I know I will!!
