I've never lived anywhere with a pool before. I remember being a little kid and wanting one more than anything in the world (well, I guess second to a dog prior to when we finally got one). There's really nothing like them during your youth. My main focus during the first 15 years of my life when I knew a trip was on the horizon was determining if our hotel had a pool. The most important thing ever. Didn't matter if we were going to Disneyland in sunny Southern California or to visit family in the woods in deep Montana- Mom! Dad! 9-1-1! Does our hotel have a pool? And now, here I am in my thirties and I'm living at a place with a pool for the first time in my life. Which makes for some relaxing weekending.
^We all can't escape this family, can we?
Truth be told, Jay and I are counting down the days until we move this summer to a new place in the city. While I do like a pool and all the amenities, we really wanted a traditional San Francisco type of home (older, bay window, built-ins, etc.) but were unable to nail one down during our short basically two half days we had available to apartment hunt last summer. So my short time living with a pool will be over in a few months and that'll be alright with me. However, I can't say that I'm complaining about my time with it now. What way to spend a Saturday.
