The Bathing Suit :-)

Yesterday UPS dropped off a package that contained a couple of bathing suits I ordered online (these were purchased on clearance so now is a great time to get a good price on one).  The bathing suit I purchased last winter is now many sizes too big :-) and I need a bathing suit that I could swim laps in. 

I purchased two sizes: Size 10 and Size 8.  Currently I wear a size 10 in pants and my top is now a size 8/10.  I tried on the size 8 and it fit perfectly!  I can't remember when I last wore anything that small (other than my shoe size of 7).  If I remember correctly I was in elementary school when I was a size 8 (2nd or 3rd grade and it was probably a 'husky' size or the pants had to be shortened because I was so short - still am by the way :-)

Now all I need is to look into getting a pair of prescription swim goggles and I'm ready to go (for my own safety and the safety of whomever I'm sharing a swim lane with - I'm blind as a bat without my glasses)!

As for a beach type swimsuit I'm going to wait a few months and actually go to the store and try some on. 

In case you are wondering I'm not brave enough to post a bathing suit picture as of yet.  That will be a before and after picture I will do at some point but not today. :-)
