A Moment Of Reflection

It's really another Moment Of Showing Off The Pool again, but it's my journal and I'll do what I want. Sometimes I do think that it's odd I spent most of my life in one of the richest areas in the country and barely kept my head above water despite mine and David's salaries. Now I move to the midwest, I'm making probably close to half what I made on LI and my house is triple the size, I have a swimming pool, air conditioning, etc... who would've ever guessed? I finally got to swim yesterday - the sun came out and after spending most of the morning cleaning the pool when I got home in the afternoon it was perfect for a dip. We're having a little bit of an issue with the new float - it's so big you can see it float by from the french doors. Charger Barger who's eyesight isn't very good anymore, goes berserk everytime it bobs by - he thinks we're under attack and acts accordingly. I've taken him outside and shown it to him to no avail - I was alerted to danger several times yesterday and Pearl just about falls off the couch everytime he sits up and suddenly howls. David is going to pick up Jackson today in Mcconnellsburg, meeting Janet at the halfway point. He's making a great progress with the room as you can see, I'm sure it'll be ready to paint by this weekend. I said if Jackson doens't want it, maybe we will! Of course that would leave the entire upper floor empty, the cats could each have thier own room though.

Hi! I'm a first time visitor to your journal... found the link at John's texture entry. Glad I stopped in. Love the pool, and that cool float... never seen one like it. What a view. It sounds like you have found your piece of paradise in this lifetime! I love your journal. The dogs are adorable... I saw the one with Charger having evidence of the kitty litter on his face. My dogs only love the vacuum when I am grooming them. The one I use to clean the carpet with, they fear. Go figure dogs! You've been blogging for several years, but I just started almost a year ago. Glad to meet you. Bea
