Or I suppose I should say that in theory, it’s a lazy Sunday afternoon. The weather is warm and the skies are clear. No clouds. Sun’s out. Beautiful day. It’s the kind that makes me want to take a nap or be in a hammock somewhere slowly drifting between two trees. It’s quiet in the house right now, with only the hum of the air conditioner, but I tell you, it’s lulling me to sleep and I have a book to finish!
The kids are all in town with daddy. He’s taking my oldest to get new jeans. Have you ever tried to keep up with clothing for three kids? It’s a never ending process. The only thing worse is the laundry. But when they get back, they all want to go swimming. See, at the first of this year, we moved to a different house. After building a pool at our OLD house this past year. Yeah, I hear you. My husband wasn’t happy about it either. But the move was absolutely the right decision for us and everyone is so much happier. It’s bigger and more private (I hate living on top of neighbors in an “organized” neighborhood) I’m simply too private a person to every exist happily in those kind of circumstances.
We close on our old house this next Friday, so the kids are getting in their last days of the swimming pool. BUT and they will be so excited to know, that my husband and I just completed the design of a new pool and the MINUTE we close on the old house, we’re going to start construction here at the new house. So shhhhh! It’s a secret ;)
We learned a lot in building that first pool. I’m actually glad to have a second chance to smooth out design flaws that the first one had and to add the things that at the time we didn’t THINK we wanted but later regretted not getting. So the new pool is going to be more my dream pool than the first one, which was much more rudimentary in its design an function. And the great thing, is that it should be completed in June so we’ll have the entire summer to enjoy it :)
