We are still trying to find our way around all of the boxes in the house. Kevin made me open all of the office ones thinking his DVDs and XBox games would be there. I tried to explain to him that none of them made it home from Germany or Afghanistan, but he just doesn't comprehend what I am saying. It's sad because he had probably $1000 worth and now they are just gone.
Anyway, he keeps screaming at me to open all of the rest of the boxes in the house and I am really starting to feel stressed about it. I just wish he would understand what I'm saying, argh!
I don't think it helps his mood any that we can't get into the pool for 48 hours. The chemicals are just too strong due to it being the first time it was treated. (and Em - there are no fire hydrants here. I never noticed that until you pointed it out, lol)
And I do agree. Kevin REALLY loves his pool and it does take a lot to get him out of it, lol. Loved the suggestions too! Hehe.
And today they finally came and fixed the palm tree that was laying on our neighbor's fence. YAY! I can rest a little bit easier. Kevin really enjoyed watching the one worker climbing up the tree. He thought that was hysterical.
Ruthie - you asked about the dark frame around the pool and that is just the screen. There really is no shade thing which is why I had to order those large off-set umbrellas. They are coming tomorrow, but I don't know when they will be 'installed'. I hope soon as I really don't allow Kevin to be in the sun for more than 10 minutes at a time and it's making him mad when I ask him to come out of the pool. Oh - and tell Jonathan 'thank you' for the very nice post.
And I know I have a ton more comments to respond to, but I am going to stop here for tonight. It's almost 1am and Kevin is still awake and I have had to get up at least 15 times while writing this post and I want to turn the light out in the hopes that he will go to sleep. I doubt it will work, but I'm gonna try...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
