Well, I've joined the many who absolutely hate Mondays. I didn't mind them when I knew I would be off on Wednesday. I'm sort of in between on my adjusting. I know when 3:30 rolls around, I'd be moaning about having to stay 2 more hrs. I think I just like to fuss and moan.
So much for sun on Saturday. It's always sunny until noon and then this huge cloud cover just rolls in. I took my solar cover off the pool.....ewwwww....can I say "hot mess." It looked like a frog pond. Totally green. The sky was totally cloudy and looked like it would rain at any moment so I went to K-Mart which is 1/2 mile down my hill from me. Ok...the sun was out there. Go figure.... I poured the algaecide in my pool. Of course the sun came out for about an hr. so I sat by my pool and hosed myself off.
As I was sitting by my pool, I was looking straight at my AC in the back that still is not fixed. I could smell gas emitting from my car right next to the pool deck, and if I turned around, I could see my "lean to" garage with half the roof blown off of it and not being fixed because of the continuous rain. Oh, the thought that was running through my head...lol. Skip the sledgehammer. I was puffing away on a cigarette. Do ya know what I was thinking? Ka-boom...in one swoop.
Now, I wasn't serious, only thoroughly disgusted. Joey tells me 16 gallons of gas would have blown half the neighborhood plus me up. He did get a chuckle out of my craziness.
Well, lo and behold, by Sunday, the pool was actually totally clean. What I thought was dirt on the bottom was actually algae. The algaecide totally cleared the pool. We had about 2 hrs of sun yesterday so Joey and I hopped in the pool.
Megan called from Naples yesterday and said it rained continuously on Friday and Saturday. They were running off to the beach yesterday while the sun was out. She was happy to hear that the weather was still yucky here. Misery loves company.
Tomorrow, we are going to Lidia's, the great Italian restaurant, for a co-worker's birthday. So much for my diet. I had a salad for lunch today. The chips and dip are calling me but I'm plugging my ears.
Have a good evening!!!!!
I thought you might get a laugh out of these AOL graphics I got from my PSP group. One has some questionable language....
