I'm surrounded by neighbors with swimming pools and I'm jealous. I can hear (and see) the splashing! The music! The laughter! It's like being very hot and thirsty and watching the person in front of you drink a giant bottle of water. We belong to a pool and I am thankful for that, but it's not the same as having one in your backyard. For one, I bet I'd never find a floating bandaid in mine.
When we were house hunting we specifically looked for a house without a pool. I'd like to go back in time and give myself a little slap on the cheek.
Sorry, kids, this is as good as it's going to get for awhile.
Tell me, what are you envious of lately?
