After my swim this morning, I realized that something wasn’t quite right with our pool. I didn’t notice the problem until I was walking on the deck, and that is when I saw it – one of the lights was burned out.
So, I will have to run out to the store today and get a replacement american products pool light. I need to make sure I get one because we will have a lot of company over for Christmas and I don’t want any problems while they are here.
After moving to our new home, we really haven’t had a lot of time to get the few things that we needed that we just didn’t have. For example, we have an indoor pool without a Pool cover, which in many respects, doesn’t make a lot of sense.
So, we have decided that we would buy a present for our pool this year, and get the things that we should have. Maybe we will make this a holiday tradition, and get something for our home each year – we will have to see.
One of the things that I have never wanted to do Is leave my family in a pickle. You know, you hear all the horror stories about so and so that died and didn’t have any affordable life insurance, and their family was in financial trouble. I guess I know that my family does depend on me for their survival, so I take some time each year to make sure mine is current.
I do this just before Christmas to make sure that they are taken care of when I am gone – the loss of me would be more than enough grief and I wouldn’t want to add financial loss as well.
