Yawn some more.
This was my entire family, animals included (except hubs) this past weekend.
We’ve been wanting a pool for summer.
We were waiting until hubs received his ‘bonus‘. Since it seems it is taking forever for the bonus to get here and summer is in full swing out here in Oklahoma, hubs decided to go out and buy a pool this past weekend.
We didn’t get a super nice pool like we had planned on getting with the bonus money. Our new pool is decent. It is a $500, 18ft easy set up pool with the metal sides.
Don’t let the words ‘easy set up’ fool ya.
Nothing easy about waiting endlessly.
Maybe we can afford to take a vacation when the bonus gets here since we’ve got a pool now…..
Anyhow, back to the pool.
After working for a few hours Saturday afternoon, hubs did a bit of shopping around. Then he came home and measured the yard, found the best spot for a pool.
Why’d he measure? I’m not sure, its not like were short of space or anything. Then hubs took a nap.
Early Sunday morning, hubs and Son #1 went off to buy the new pool after reading the sale flyers from the TulsaWorld newspaper. They were home by noon with the new pool and supplies.
It took hubs all afternoon on his stupid tractor to get a place leveled for the pool. He was not satisfied with doing a fast job so the boys, especially 3 yo Wee One would stop bugging me to go swimming.
Oh no, hubs took all damn afternoon on that stupid tractor tearing up the lawn making sure the spot for the pool was perfect, putting down hard screenings and all.
Wee One and I went visiting for the afternoon.
Son #1 mowed 2 of his lawn jobs so he’d be free all afternoon Monday to enjoy the new pool.
By early evening, Wee One had given up on swimming. Poor kid.
Wee One was appeased with taking a bath in my huge bath-tub then he crashed into bed fairly early. H even let me watch the Sopranos in peace, which is unheard of around here. One of my favorite characters, Sil, was killed off. Damn….
I went to bed at midnight, I turned the water off. The pool was barely filled…stupid rural water route with weak pressure.
Not much water in the pool when I checked it early Monday morning.
I was not happy.
In fact, I must have been cussing rather loudly because I scared this here land tortoise off:
There he goes, speeding back into the pasture and away from the crazy lady. That was one fast land turtle.
Well, our pool is finally up and we are enjoying it.
Since my camera isn’t water proof and Wee One needs my constant supervision near the water, I’ll post some pool photos when:
1. I grow a 3rd arm
2. I have some assistance with Wee One
Altho growing a 3rd arm will probably happen quicker than anything else……
