This drawing is from a while back, but I thought it was perfect to celebrate the Year of the Ox! The sub-freezing temps are continuing around here, and I'm fighting off what I call the "winter blahs", as well as the "pregnancy blahs". Both of these blahs make me want to glue myself to the couch and not budge, but that's not exactly something I thrive on. So on Saturday I remembered the brand new maternity bathing suit my sister-in-law gave me, and I decided to walk over to the local indoor pool for the $5 adult swim. Chris came with, despite thinking it odd that I wanted to go swimming on a 20 degree night in January. But the room and the water were well heated, and we had the gigantic pool to ourselves. It really felt good to get myself moving, although I have a feeling the baby was yelling, "I did not authorize this!" For some reason I picture her as a little tyrant in there. A lovable tyrant.
