While food has definitely been my #1 obsession lately (hence the baking/cooking sprees), there's something I haven't been able to stop thinking about this past week. It's something I just really want, have never craved it before, and I think about it at least 3-4 times a day! No, it's not the strange pregnancy phenomenon, "pica," in which pregnant women want to do things like eat dirt, clay, coffee grounds, or match heads. Instead, I've developed an intense desire to swim with a dolphin.
I'm not sure how it got in my head, but for the past week, I've been fantasizing about swimming with these giant mammals while I'm super-prego. I realize that this is one of those things that many people dream about and is a once-in-a-lifetime thing to do. I'm very lucky to live just a quick boatride away from the island of Roatan, home to Anthony's Key Resort. At AKR, there are daily dolphin encounters. A good friend of ours spent last summer working at this resort with the dolphins. We couldn't be in a better place to make this happen easily.
On our way to church this morning, Tom proposed an idea. He suggested that we have a contest of sorts. We will be competing against ourselves to see if we can post a blog every day in November. If we can do this, we'll use part of our Thanksgiving break weekend to go swim with the dolphins out in Roatan. If we don't post a blog every day in November, well, we'll just have to see. But I think we can do it. Go Team Lewandowski!
