The rains have stopped our pool preparations. The children can barely contain themselves. I mean how cruel is it to spend a week prepping for a pool, a whole day watching them install it and then not be able to swim? It’s practically torture.
I looked up torture in Wikipedia and it says, “Torture has been prohibited by the UN.” Please don’t tell the UN that our kids haven’t been in our pool yet.
On the flip side…the rains have made the grass grow which means we’ll be mowing all day tomorrow. Wait a minute. That’s not the flip side. I think that’s the same side. Uh-oh. Things are getting worse.
While we’re on the subject of this pool causing trouble….I have just noticed that we may have a laundry situation. I am already overrun with swimsuits and cover-ups and we haven’t even used them yet! Why do kids think something has to be washed every. time. you. wear. it?
Haven’t they noticed that the washer and dryer are already running 22 hours a day? I am going to have to come up with a strategy and quick.
I hope we can get in the pool tomorrow. If not, it’s going to be a loooong day of misery.
