Over flowing energy
Friday, July 01, 2011
Now that school is out and I have caught up on my rest and house work, I have too much energy! I have been working in the yard early in the morning when it is still cool. I go to the pool, do walking videos, read, nap, go to the library, cook and look at Sparkpeople and FB on the computer. It's still not enough!
I don't have to get up early to go to work or go to classes in the evening or study. I get so used to being in a hurry and being tired all during the school year that it is almost a shock when it all stops.
I am kind of lonely too. I have lots of school friends, but none of them live in my neighborhood. It's hard to get together with people, they all have busy lives and small children.
So here I am. My son is out with his friends, hubby is watching TV in the bedroom.
I have been swimming at the local college where my son and I are both taking classes and he is lifeguarding there also. Lap swimming is a solitary sport. I love it and it burn lost of calories, the fat just seems to melt away when I get to swim regularly. My size 8 shorts that I could not wear when school got out I can now wear comfortably, and that is after only about 2 weeks of swimming! But my point is I don't really get to meet anyone or visit or anything like that, you can't talk while swimming laps! I just get in and swim for 45 mins or so and then I go home.
I know I am lucky. I have a job where I get most of the summer off. I have a pool I can go to, a park across the street where I can go to walk, (when it's not too hot). Plenty of workout videos for when it is too hot outside. Lots of books and time to read them.
So why am I complaining? I still feel lonely. There should be more to it than this. I won't to go somewhere and do something but I don't do clubs and what else is there but going to a restaurant or shopping?
I just feel so restless.
