I may have been abducted by an alien.

I believe I have been abducted by an alien, had my brain replaced, and then returned.  On Saturday the boys and I dropped G off at a birthday party and headed to Wal-mart to get a pool.  Yes, I said a pool.  In my back yard, yes I did.  When we picked up G from the birthday party, several hour later, and were pulling into the sub G looked over and said...."OMG, did we really get a pool.  No kidding we really got a pool, I don't believe it we got a pool."  We filled it up and the kids wanted to get in.  Ummm yeah, we have well water and it is cold!  58 degrees to be exact.  They did get in, but I didn't let them stay in long.

Then of course the temps hit 100 and the pool warmed up considerably.  Today it was 85 and not just the top foot, that was 95.  Of course it is going to be 65 over the weekend.  Can't win them all.

As you can see the pool is leaning a little to the right.  That is a problem. It was just a couple of inches lower than the other side and we thought it would be okay, but now we are planning on taking it down and fixing it before we have our own America's Funniest Home Video.  The only thing that really bothers me is the wasted water.  I am going to water the yard with it, since we used salt and not chlorine, but that still makes me sick.  I figure my neighbors water their yards everyday, what's another 4400 gallons.

I have also heard some very interesting conversations while supervising the pool.  10 year old girls have active minds.

Lots more to write about a lovely conversation with the Michigan tax assessor regarding our house there,  but right now I need to get to bed.
