ACK!!! I cannot find my bathing suit bottoms. I have looked all over the house. They aren't in my gym bag, in my 'other bag' of somewhat dirty but still okay to wear gym clothes, hanging in the bathroom to dry, in my gym clothes drawer, in the laundry basket, on the closet floor, in any other drawer... THEY HAVE DISAPPEARRED!!!

This is why we shouldn't put all our eggs in one basket. This is why I usually buy things in twos and threes when I like them. This is my only pair of bathing suit bottoms. I like to swim in an athletic top of somesort and this pair of bottoms. I find this much more comfortable than a traditional swimsuit. And it is hard to find bottoms that fit, so finding a replacement that I like isn't going to be an easy task.

Before you gasp in horror at the thought of me swimming bottomless, let me assure you that I have other options...aka tri shorts, but I'm really getting tired of being "that woman who swims in long shorts."



  1. You posted this just to make me laugh right? I am laughing with you I hope, but at me as I've been there.

    So what exactly do you swim in... I hate wearing a swim suit - especially in my athena sized bod.

  2. Have you checked to see if they got mixed up with UW and wound up in the panty drawer? Just a thought.

    BTW, I lose things routinely. I call it the 41-year-old-woman-losing-her-mind syndrome.

  3. It is both funny and not so funny. For the life of me, I cannot figure out where they disappeared to!

    I've checked all my mix up there.

    New theory: Maybe accidently mixed in with my daughters stuff(ack...then I will *never* find them)

    I like to swim in this particular pair of bottom (now it is tri shorts instead) and an athletic top for running with a built in bra. It really isn't made for swimming, but I like that better than a swimsuit. Swimsuit=evil. Athletic run top combo=good.
