Pool Time = Fun Time ~ Not All The Time!

Posted on: June 28, 2013

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

Here we go again…another summer weekend, will it be hot and dry or cool and rainy?  Last Saturday was a perfect day and I had plans of lounging poolside all afternoon, but sometimes pool maintenance can change the best laid plans.  I often dream of having a “Pool Boy”, someone to keep the chemicals balanced, remove the debris and skim the leaves…someone too…HOLD ON…wait a minute!pool boy

 Hubby wouldn’t like that very much and I would probably end up getting someone like Nick Cannon in “Love Don’t Cost A Thing!”pool boy2

We’ve had our pool for about 18 years and there is always maintenance involved some more intense than others like the replacement of tiles.  These fell off a few years ago and it took me too many hours on Saturday to replace them.

I stopped at Leslie’s Pool Supplies and purchased Patch It, it wasn’t hard to make the putty but like that scene from The Cosby Show, I’d seal one tile and another would fall off – it was frustrating to say the least.

After several hours of this I gave up but only after using the entire bucket!

Of course then I had to vacuum out the residue and skim the leaves!

After all that, I was finally able to sit back and relax for a whole 2 hours!!

So if you happen to be in the neighborhood – stop by & bring a cold one…AND a Pool Boy!

This why my husband refuses to get a pool…too much work he says…but I love your idea of the pool boy♥

Exactly…there’s a lot of work involved and anymore it’s just me….and my fantasy!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Cool to have a pool…..PITA to have to keep it up.

I know and the sadder thing is…nobody swims in it but me…the boys may once or twice if ever!

That is wrong beyond words…
