Whew! It's been a busy week...busy couple of weeks, actually. Two weekends ago I flew to Indianapolis for a surprise 30th birthday party for my dear friend Betsy whom I've known since the first day of kindergarten. It was great---she was SO surprised! My brother and his wife also made the trip to Indy for a day and we took their two-year-old daughter (my niece) Madelyn to the Indianapolis zoo. Maddie is on an elephant kick right now so of course that was a big hit. She is a strong-willed little girl, very articulate and TALL. If what they say about doubling the height at age two to get an estimated adult height is true---watch out WNBA!!!
I've recently picked up a new responsibility as the Registrar for Utah Masters Swimming. It's a volunteer position that involves processing all the Utah Masters registrations, printing out the new cards, and sending them off to the swimmers. I met with the out-going Registrar on Monday to learn the ropes, and since then it's been a crash course because 2009 registration just opened and there is a swim meet this Saturday---and they all need to be processed before then! So I've been a bit frantic with getting all that sorted out.
To make things more exciting, I'm actually swimming in the meet this weekend! I think I signed up for 5 events but I can't remember all of them---100 and 400IM for sure, 50 free, 100 breast, and one other event that escapes me right now. Should be a hoot! I'll be sure to post an update of how it goes!
