What In The World Is Going On?.........

What in the world is going on?


Found this old post in my files and thought that you might enjoy it again...I am reminded of this all the time....But hey, it is FUNNY! So, Enjoy.......
 
BTW.....(Shanda actually got the ol' pool out this past week and let Mylee swim in it again)


                                                        ***************************

By now, you all should know just how hilariously crazy my life can be.....Well, once again a crazy moment has occurred.







Mylee loves to swim and she has one of those little (???) blow up pools that sits on my back porch. (I guess it's not so little, but hey, this two year old needed plenty of room to swim.   I can't swim very well, so this pool works well for the two of us!







Day before yesterday, I was out on the porch and I decided that since Shanda is out of school and Mylee wont be coming everyday, I would get the pool up and out of my way! I had this bright idea, that I could push it up on the roof of the house and that way I wouldn't have to deflate it. (It was the roof in the on the back of the house).....Duh....I'm not totally crazy!





I had to really struggle to push the thing up onto the steeper part of the roof. (I know the neighbors were wandering what on earth?)  Ladders come in handy for projects such as this.....



 When Carson came by the house, he was so stressed because he thought I was going to make Mylee swim in her pool up there on the top of the house....(laugh)


We haven't had any rain in about three months, so who would expect it to rain this week? I know you see where I am going with this.....
 
During the night last night, it rained so hard and it is still pouring down at this time. Already nine inches of rain.



Sam had already left for work this morning when I remembered the pool was on top of the house. I almost panicked. I called him and he immediately wanted to know what was wrong. I told him where I had put the pool (remember....on top of the house) and then I hear this silence on the phone. I would loved to have seen his face. I wasn't sure what
 
I was going to do if I couldn't reach him. I had considered shooting the air out of the thing with Tucker's BB gun, but how would I explain this to Mylee? Thank goodness, Sam made it home...


It is pouring down rain and lightning really bad. I am still panicking!!!!!!

He quickly realizes that there is no way that he can reach the pool, so he gets a large professional broom and tries to pull the thing down. It comes down alright. Right on top of his head!  Do you have any idea how much water a pool like this holds?

Sam is soaked and you know the looks I am getting at this point. The good thing is, that he really is so easy going and after the initial shock of the cold water drenching him, he just laughs because he knows he can always expect crazy things out of me.
I probably won't be putting the pool back up on the roof any time soon. Don't you wander what tomorrow will bring??

Shug..............



Don't live a boring life.....It's OK to be a little crazy ever now and then!!

Oh My Goodness.... I've never heard of storing things on the ROOF.... That's so funny!!!! I can only imagine what hubby thought --when he got drenched!!!!

Glad you did get some rain though---so sorry it was SO much at one time. We are hotter than hot here... Wish it would rain here.

Hugs,
Betsy

You are reminding me of the "I Love Lucy" show!! The word hairbrained comes to mind, but on second thought I won't use it!! Your Sam sound just like my Phil, they would get along well!

This is quite funny and I have to say I wouldn't have thought of putting the pool on the roof!

One rainy night,my DH and I went to visit some friends, walking to the porch using the same umbrella. I was carrying the umbrella and when we got to the porch I started to close it and poured ALL the rain down his back. Thanks,, I haven't thought of that "funny" in years...lol
Somehow he doesn't remember it to be quite as funny as I do. hahhaaa
