Emily swam 500 yards again

And she did it in 8 minutes and 2 seconds again! Quite consistant! This meet was in Moorhead, so it wasn't far to drive and it was just the two schools, so it started at 6 and ended at 8. Unfortuately Emily didn't swim until 7:15 and I dropped her off at 5 for warm-ups, so I spent over 2 hours watching other girls. Now, had I waited to come closer to the time she actually swam, I would have saved myself 2 hours and $5! But it was fun and I learn something new everytime I watch a meet. I've been lucky to sit next to seasoned swimming moms who share their knowledge with me.

I also got my hair cut. It's not at my chin - maybe an inch below. Rob thought I should try it and since I wasn't attached to my current style, I thought I would. Not sure if I like it or not - it dries faster, but I haven't figured out what to do with it yet. It's great for those windy North Dakota days when your hair whips around and gets all knotted! And today is one of those days - swirling snow - our first snow of the season!
