I went swimming yesterday with Sphi. I haven’t done that in forever (Maui doesn’t count!). It was gloriously fun and splashy and cool, but I was quickly reminded just how tiring it is to swim a lap and why I hated being on a swim team (fifth grade). But Sophie didn’t make me swim more than I wanted to, so I stopped when I got tired, and so it’s a nice feeling of physical exertion that I’m left with, not sulky exhaustion.
