oh pool, how I've missed you!

The pool has been ready and waiting for my family to jump into it for a few weeks now, but the weather has been too hot for me to sit and watch my kids swim, and the water too cold for me to get in and swim, so we didn't go at all, even though the kids begged and pleaded and cried.

But this morning I swam with a friend while the kids were in school, because it's pretty much too humid to enjoy our long morning walks now. So we've gone back to long morning swims. Which I'd forgotten how much I love! I love, love, love private morning swims even more than I love fresh salsa and frozen mangoes.
 Except I don't love Giant Water Bugs. (check out this link, and this link to see how creepy they are)
We had to scoop them out of the pool before we could swim.
But we swam. For two peaceful hours. With no crazy kids around with all the splashing and jumping and screaming. And I remembered again how my dream for my next house is to have a private pool I can swim in every day. Chris says No Way Jose, but I'll find a way. I've got a dream.

And pool, it was nice to see you again!

  1. Oh, I wish I had a chance to swim in a pool without children. I dream of having my own pool too, but then I see how much work it is to keep them nice and will stick with the cheap way of having a pool. :-) Enjoy your pool!
