I went tubing for the first time yesterday.  What’s tubing, you ask?  Basically it’s floating in an inner tub down a river.  You can rent a tube at a local place and then you relax as you float down the river for a couple of hours.  I went with some friends to the Comal river in New Braunfels.  Though I put on lots of sunscreen, I did get burned on my arms in patchy spots yesterday.  I think I missed some spots when I reapplied lotion after our first go around and some of it rubbed off.  I stayed in the water for most of the second trip but my arms were exposed from holding on to the tube.  We were going to go out to eat after we got back, but I wasn’t feeling up to it.  I think the excessive heat caused me to get dehydrated and I just wanted to head home to shower and eat.  I sent Josh for food while I showered and put aloe vera on my arms.  I felt better after eating but it was too late for me to head to Scrabble practice so I just read my book instead.  I set a goal to read 50 books this year on GoodReads so I’m trying to catch up.  I’m about 7 books behind schedule at this point, but I still have plenty of books to read. 

I was planning on not doing much today, but I have to get dressed at some point and turn in some equipment at the school.  I guess since I have to get out, I’ll head to the library to return my books.  Just a little more than a week of summer left.  It’s going to go by way too fast.

I have actually been to New Braunfels. forty years ago for a wedding of a childhood friend. Ate at a German restaurant. It was unbearably hot and humid and only April. oh, and her name is Annabelle Lee.
