|A teenager in Florida who was afraid of water = me|
A fear that has gripped me for almost half a century that I am determined to overcome.
Fear of water - swimming
I was the teenage girl with bad body image sporting a white rubber bathing cap and cowering at the country club pool. Yeah, that was me. Too embarrassed and prideful to take swimming lessons.
I hated spending days at the pool.
I was the young collegiate at summer parties terrified someone would toss me in the water and see me flail about like a goof. Everyone was alerted to NOT throw Cindy in the water.
|You see a pool, I see an aquatic obstacle.|
And when the OS were little, I was the mama stuck on the beach chair. Longing to jump into the water, instead I watched the Hubs toss the boys in the air at the pool. Just a lonely mama who couldn't venture to the deep end of the pool and stayed on the side. :(
|If I've got the guts to make raw multi-seed crackers, I should be able to swim, right?|

|I long for a picture of my OS and I in the pool.|
One more thing...here's the link for the crackers! They are GOOD!
