Seriously, Lindsey can't get here soon enough. That's all I've got to say about that.
Things are pretty boring at our house right now. All we've been doing is fixing the house, it seems. Chuck installed a hot water heater, drained, cleaned, and filled our pool, and fixed a drip in one of our air conditioners. Now it feels like our other air conditioner is on the fritz so we'll have to go buy another. Chuck broke the valve on our pool pump last night so that has to be fixed. I'm sure something else will break soon. Old houses are just a drain on your bank account.
The pool doesn't sound like that bad of a job except, well, it was! It was green like a swamp. The algae started growing while we had the cover on and we didn't realize it until we took the cover off and, by that time, it was way too late. We called our pool guy (who stopped coming while we had the pool cover on). He came by, took one look, and fired us on the spot. He said, "I don't have time for that." Yeah, no lie. I had no idea pool guy could fire us, but there you have it. Chuck spent all last week trying to back flush it (whatever that means) and then we had some friends over who actually know something about pools and the consensus was that it needed to be drained, power washed, and refilled. So we spent Saturday and Sunday doing that. The algae was so bad that we couldn't even see the top step. There could have been dead bodies at the bottom of the pool and I would have never known. I'll have to post a picture when I get a chance. Anyhow, things are better now, but I have to say that all this maintenance and repair work has been keeping our life hectic but boring. Hence, I have no stories, no interesting events.
So, instead, I will just have to post another movie quote soon.
