Why a day at the pool rocks

1. I never heard “I’m bored!!!!” from Damon… all day.

2. I never heard “I’m bored!!!!” from Avery… all day.

3. I spent 6 blissful hours out of my house (that rarely happens!).

4. I didn’t have to take a dog outside or fill a water bowl or yell at a dog for being spastic… all day.

5. Our pool has yummy cheese fries (and I packed the rest of the kids’ lunch, so we didn’t spend a small fortune at the snack bar).

6. I didn’t have to yell at the kids for fighting… all day.

7. Saw more smiles on Damon’s face than I’ve seen in months, I think.

8. I didn’t have to do any housework.

9. I didn’t have to feel guilty about doing no housework (because I wasn’t sitting in the house, looking at all the work that needs to be done, just thinking about doing it).

10. Damon was out cold by 8pm.*

*Without a doubt, the BEST thing about a day at the pool!!!!
