We'd been looking and keeping our eyes open for a while. Mrs Kid wanted an oval to swim laps in, but I think she didn't like the prices on them. That, and we really don't have room for a good size oval. I was in Wally World and they had a round 18' x 48" on the shelf. I figured since I was there, it was there, and we had the money all at one time, it must be a sign. They helped me load it up and That's when it dawned on me- I didn't have room to store it... yet. I opened the garage, shuffled the buggy around a bit, and made JUUUUST enough room to squeeze it in there. I'll be moving things around Saturday, I'm sure.
Maybe the weather will stay nice and warm and we can get it set up & open before too long (I hope). Looks like I'll be spending some quality time in pool school soon. The intent is to go BBB & not look back. I don't recall ever reading of anybody regretting that decision. It makes perfect sense to me.
