Ok we really must do something about this heat.

It was 90 degrees again today. We are all tired of being stuck in the house huddled around the AC. So I took matters into my own hands and bought a pool.

I have been wanting to get one, but our yard isn't very level, so I had to go first go and get 600 lbs of river rock to lay down to make it level and not puncture though the liner.

By the time we got the rocks laid out, and then got the pool assembled, it was almost 3:00. Totally smack dab in the heat of the day. So we began to fill it up, but it is a rather large pool, so it took longer than hoped to fill. After about an hour of filling, we couldn't wait any longer. I don't care if there is only 6 inches of water in there, I'm going in!!! And so we did. We enjoyed that 6 inches of water like you wouldn't believe :)

In the end, it took almost 5 hours to fill it. Just in case you were wondering. Can't wait to get our next water bill :)

i've recently rediscovered kmart and i'd like to make the following public service announcement:


just because it's at kmart doesn't make it inexpensive.

(whatever happened to the blue light special?)
