I have been consumed with fixing up our rental house for new tenants. It's consuming me and also some other family things going on that I had refereed to before my marathon. If you know me well, you know that very few things stress me out...but a those few that do are happening right now. Our rental house is totally stressing me out, which is no good. We have had to pull-up the carpets, re-paint, flea bomb the house 4 times and still have a work party happening tomorrow to fix more stuff. I am OVERWHELMED like never before and it's hard to see an end in sight. Maybe that's why I haven't been blogging much lately...too much crazy stuff going on at the moment. We had to kick out the non-paying tenants, who haven't pain since April and now have to pour more money into cleaning up everything they messed up...not fun. Sorry that I am venting...This is also why I need to run. See what happens when I am thrown off my schedule and running takes a back seat....nothing good.
In some GOOD news, (minus the crap going on) we have had such a fun week. I have to say that the only thing better than enjoying summer as a kid, is watching your kids enjoy their summer. Don't be jealous, buuuuttttt we have a new pool...it's new and I don't want to brag but it's pretty FREAKING awesome. The four of us...hubby, both kids and I enjoyed it yesterday as we soaked in the sun and refreshed ourselves in the cool water! I can't believe how some water can make life so much fun when you're in the sun. We have a slide in our pool too which the kids love. I am now the pool cleaner, which I don't mind...kind of fun. Here are some pictures of our lovely pool...again...please don't be jealous...we are just really blessed (with 50% of at Fred Meyer...you could be too).
Ok so maybe it's just another kiddie pool, but we love it. And I was not joking...all 4 of us were in it...always a good time at our house! How great that something so little could be so much fun.
Yep...told ya we had a slide! Jealous yet?
Max is a little big for this..but don't tell him.
Can't beat Watermelon on a hot day!
Oh and a lot of baseball....Cole is a fanatic!
Because of all the craziness I wasn't able to run the GREAT, AFFORDABLE 5k this morning with Tall-Mom and Muscle man. Mel did great! Wish I could have done it...I am dying to run a 5k. Maybe I will go do that right now! Thanks for checking out our new pool! Feel free to come on over anytime you want to take a ride down our water slide...You are always welcome! Just can't guarantee the 90 degree weather.
Oh and a MAJOR shout out to Steph who ran her first 50 miler today....there are some amazing people in our bloggy world! Congrats Steph...You are AMAZING.
