nice to swim in a warm pool

The pool that was at our apartment in Missouri was not heated... and it was in the shade for a good portion of the day, therefore even on the warmest days of summer, the pool was still quite chilly. But, we took Lydia into the pool anyway since she was old enough and thought she'd like it. And at the time, I thought she DID like it.

But today, we went to our pool here at our apartments in Texas and what a difference! The water was MUCH warmer (there was no "shock" or "getting used to" the water or anything) and Lydia clearly liked it better. She actually played in the water a little instead of giving us a look that said, "Why are you holding me in this COLD water?" She would try to grab the little air bubbles that floated around, and would pat the water a little and smile and coo. :)

In other news, I've finally gotten all of the non-essential kitchen "stuff" re-packed and stacked in our storage closet. I can see my dining room and the dining room table again! :) For a couple of days, I didn't do anything unpacking-wise because I just felt like I was doing the same thing over and over and not really getting anywhere. But the accomplishment today is really giving me a boost. There's not a whole lot left to do now, just the bookshelf and getting rid of the boxes, really. OH and we have a home phone now! I last checked it on Monday and still didn't have a dial tone, then plugged it in today and surprise, there was a dial tone! Then I called hubby's cell phone and he answers it, but he's right there in the room with me. He was only slightly amused. :P

And here I thought patting the water was only a little boy thing. :) Of course, Stephen pats everything...
