Today I saw the thing that keeps me from packing up all our books and moving out of our apartment to one of the cuter or less expensive or less downhill apartments in our neighborhood. The thing that I've been waiting for since October. The thing that makes Midwest summer humidity bearable...
They've started cleaning out the pool.
Hallelujah! In a week or two, I will be out there making vitamin D and then appropriately sunscreening myself.
Just in time too. The trees have leafed out and now "pleasantly" shade our deck. (No, really I love the tree. I just really like sunshine.)
