Feb 10th? It’s time for a swim!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:27 am

I have been dying to go swimming since we bought the house in Nov and have been trying to find ways to heat the pool above it’s original 50 degree mark. Unfortunately my efforts have less than thrilled my wife due to the shrapnel left in the yard from my trials and tribulations, but she’s been a trooper though and hasn’t been too unaccepting so far.

I had been doing yard stuff all afternoon and had made up my mind that today was the day, the day for history, the day of the first human in our pool since we bought it. Sure, it was a frigid 57 degrees but I was undaunted. I proclaimed my decision to my wife, she said to make sure and let her know before I got in so she could witness the event, and even got my son involved when I decided the time had arrived to get in the pool. The first two steps in were okay, it was the third one that almost got me – it’s that critical part of the body that can sway lots of decisions in life given the right situation. Once I had gotten used to the water at that point I decided it was time to go all the way and dunked myself. Whoa.

A funny side-effect was that all this inspired Hayden to join in the fun and he started getting in the pool too. It took him a little while before he got in far enough to encounter the problem I had with the third step listed above but he thought it was more funny than excruciatingly cold and proclaimed – “I got my pe*is wet!”. LOL. What a kid.

By the time I was ready to get out it had been about an hour and Hayden was still ready to go. This is going to be a great summer.
