All this snow had me thinking about plans for the summer. I'll have a 6-month-old in April, and we'll be able to do lots of fun things. There's a pool just two blocks away from us, and as Jake has the car most days, I'm always on the lookout for entertainment within walking distance. I had wonderful images in my head about walking to the pool and splashing around with Joseph, just like I'd seen Melinda do with her kids in their apartment pool in Bountiful.
Alas, it is not to be.
I just checked the website for the pool (actually, it's a private swim club). In order to be at their highest level of membership, I'd have to pay over $1200 this year and $642 each subsequent year. At the next level (weekdays only), I'd just have to pay the annual fee of $642, and at the lowest level (weekdays only from 4-8 pm), it's still over $400.
Inflatable kiddie pool it is, Joseph. I hope we can keep the geese away from you.
