“I want…”

Apparently, though I don’t think you’d see it in this blog, I supposedly have a difficult time asking for help.

I dunno… sometimes I do!

Anyway.. while we were discussing what my dreams were for the future, on the assumption that all of my claims would be approved, I mentioned I wanted to get back out on the water.

I used to row, scull, sit backwards in a really long really skinny boat and row backwards. ๐Ÿ™‚

The male of the couple I’m staying with I first met while rowing. He’s freakin’ good. I’m moderately good for a civilian but I’m not at the level he is as an athlete.

Anyway, he said, “so when do you want to go rowing?”

Well I stared at him for a minute or so, then started to explain that I couldn’t go row because you have to be a member of the club and I don’t have the money to be a member at this time, and probably some time to come, if ever again.

But he said, “so we’ll go rowing.”
So! Either he’ll get permission for me to come out (as a prior member of the club) or maybe pay for a “rowing card” which has a certain number of uses allowed.

Woot!

I miss rowing being out in the middle of the river/lake (it’s a dammed river), sculling along. It’s peaceful yet challenging all at the same time.

    When I look back I find it rather amazing that we didn’t end up in the drink. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here, we have parks and places you can go rowing. Maybe, he has something else in mind other then the club. Have Fun.
