On a more positive note, I discovered a public pool near my house and I have been going there almost every night to cool off and get some exercise. The pool is also reserved for adults in the evenings so there's no children splashing about. This is also wonderful for me because it not only gets me away from home, I can take a break from Philip, and it has been helping me with a lot of stress/anxiety I have been under.
On the weekends, I bring Philip to the pool and he loves the water. For a while, I gave up on the pool because he hated it as a baby and now that he is much older, he realized how much fun it is to splash around.
Another thing I like about the pool, during weekdays and weekends, there is also a wading pool available for the kiddies. I love the fact that I have a kid because I can indulge in my inner child with Philip over there. I am serious, if I didn't have a kid, I would borrow a friend's kid because I never had shit like this when I was younger! You see, this is no ordinary wading pool. We have water cannons, a pole with buckets attached that tip over and splash you with water and all kinds of cool gizmos. We have a "water splash" as Philip calls it right up the street from my house but we don't want to go there anymore after discovering The Pool.
For those wondering, the following photo is our old hang out, "the water splash" but we don't go there anymore after discovering The Pool. This place is so overrated and as Philip would say "for babies"
So there you have it Darklings. What are you doing to keep cool this summer?
