75 and rising

Tim tricked us. Last night he wrote that the heater was fixed and the pool should be up to 80 by this morning. This morning the sign in front said "Heater fixed! Temp up to 75 degrees and rising one degree per half hour!" as if this was a happy declaration.

And so we were faced with whether to jump in. As obsessive-compulsive swimmers, we'd been out of the water for at least three days and a fourth was simply not an option. We took the plunge. And I have to say kudos again to Tim for keeping us moving through the workout...it wasn't half as bad as I expected!

By noon the pool should be its balmy normal temp. I'm already looking forward to tomorrow morning!
