How Do You Make A Frog Float?
sigh. The frogs appreciate the float Janet gave David for his birthday this year. We've discovered at night there appears to be a large amount of frog shinanigans going on in the pool. But if they're out by morning I guess it's not hurting anything. We're still leaking a bit, about 1/2 an inch at night, but it's slowed down a lot. We know the liner was damaged by the water just sitting in it for a few years but we hope to get at least this season out of it. We'll call the pool guys at some point to see if they can find it, but we can just replenish it at night until the end of the season. We finally fired up the pool yesterday, David had quite a time with it, the 3rd picture is what shot out of the jets, is that not disgusting or what? And since we hadn't been able to run it up til now the pool had already started sliming up, but we scrubbed down the sides and flung Shock in and within two hours it was all gone. I spent the rest of the afternoon paddling around the pool with David. He wanted to go paint but after all the effort he's put in I convinced to enjoy it for a few minutes.I interviewed for the visit nurse position on Thursday and will hear from them on Monday - after I went in and interviewed I really want this job. It's alot of driving, but the pay is the same as the hospitals AND no weekends or holidays. So if I'm not hired there, maybe that will be my new direction - I also have an interview for a doctor's office. David's heading off for NJ this week to do Ray's house and to collect the last load of stuff from Pa. He's also got to talk with our RE agent, the house still has not sold - we've lowered the price on it, but we might also be looking into renting it for a year and waiting until next summer to put it back on the market. We really didn't want to do that but right now the PA house is sucking wind and also sucking out our bank account. We wouldn't be making a profit but it would pay for itself. David continues to work on the house, he and Jackson took down the silly deck in the back and will eventually move it near the pool. They'd put a deck on the back (one of the "improvements") but there was no access to it. To get to it you have to walk all the way around the house(it's not near any doors or walkways), so it wasn't really usable for BBQs and it was tucked where the house jogs in so you got a lovely view of the shed. David and I are planning on going to a few yard sales today, but I'm not sure why. We can't find any place for our stuff, why we wouldwant to add someone else's is a mystery to us all.
