Closed pool

As some of you know(probably only me lol) we put a pool up for the summer. It was one of those pools that you buy at Target and have up in an hour or more. That is true, but they did not factor in the time it takes to get the beast out of the box. So total time was really about an hour and 45 minutes, not bad.
But it is now time to take it down, I did not take any pics of the comming down due to the fact I was soaked, cursing at it and fighting with the pool the whole time. It was messy, wet and a little stinky; and lets us not forget all the fuking bugs that were attacking me the whole time. But here are some of the pool pics from me cleaning the bitch earlier this summer.















Now dont get me wrong I totaly loved the pool and so did the whole family, but it was a job in its self. Even with all the pain and exspense I would love to have a "real" pool next year. It would have to be an above ground one because of the baby. He loves the water and I know he would be the first one doing a head dive into it if it was an in ground pool. At least with the above ground ones you can remove the ladder to keep the shorties out and save. That does include my wife who is rather short. When I hug her and she is not wearing heels I am a good head and a half taller. She hates it when I call her an Umpalumpa LOL she is too cutie though, she is my little Umpalumpa :-D.















Well until next summer the bald spot in the yard will have to be the only reminder of warmer times.

I love pools! I remember when we had an above ground when I was actually little, yes I was little once, I'm a giant of a woman now that's why I say that; anyhow, when I was like five, I couldn't get into the pool and I used to get so mad when my mom wouldn't let me! If I ever get a pool, no matter the expense I would have to get an in-ground, an above ground would just be a waste of money in my opinion.

That pool looks so inviting! I would love to get a pool for the baby, but you just reminded me of why we will never have one. Too much freakin work!

You could leave your underground pool covered... but I do understand you don't want to take any risks. Pools rock!

we did the in ground pool thing this year.. and I have 3 kids.. 5, 3, and 8 months old.. we just did the.. you cant be outside without an adult.. there is a short fence with a lock around the pool.. and well.. they aren't allowed outside without an adult. Safety is always first.

I loathe this time of year. Closing down my pool is one thing I hate to do.
