Rushing to the pool party.

Just got home from our annual baseball swimming party. We finally got wise and arranged for a babysitter for the little ones. I had a much more relaxing time without chasing children and counting heads and being nervous in general.

I wasn't about to sit by the side of the pool today. Who wants to sit in 100+ degree heat and watch others enjoy splashing in the water? Not me.
One problem, I didn't have a suit and we were running late. Rose said, "Mommy, how about Target?" Sweet, bright girl! We stopped there on the way to the party and I found a suit on sale for $10!

Too bad the pool water wasn't cold and refreshing. It's just been so hot here for so long that the pool felt like a bathtub. Yuk. After dinner as the grownups sat around chatting I felt really uncomfortable. I kept shifting around in my chair. It felt like I was sitting on something, but there was nothing in the chair.

By the time I figured out what it was, it was 10pm and we were on our way home. I couldn't wait to the suit off and remove the plastic hygienic shield. That's what I get for being in a hurry!

I'm looking forward to 106+ degree heat all of next week. NOT!! Fall cannot come soon enough.
