I LOVE CALIFORNIA!!!
Want to know what the worst part of California weather is? Nothing. Every day is perfect here and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I was born and raised here and have no idea how people can handle living where it snows. Now I don’t want to make anyone from the east coast jealous or angry but imagine being able to walk outside and enjoy this 365 days out of the year:
Yes, living here is as amazing as it sounds.
I have family across the country living in Illinois and I have been there during the winter. I HATE IT. My family always tells me it is just something that they have gotten used to and it makes them appreciate the summer weather more when it finally arrives. You want to know what makes me appreciate the summer weather? NOT HAVING SNOW. I mean seriously, who wants to spend 30 minutes every day putting on layer after layer of clothing just to go to the grocery store? Not this guy; that’s for sure. Alright, now I’m starting to feel a little bit bad for anyone reading this with the summer months quickly wrapping up and snow just around the corner.
So if you read my first blog post; you know that our family had a pool installed a couple of years ago. Now this thing is absolutely awesome, do not get me wrong, but having my little sister around it isn’t the safest thing that we could have. Actually, about 2 months ago my little sister fell in and gave my parents a pretty big scare. She was totally fine and it happened when we were all outside with her so it wasn’t a big deal or anything but it really freaked my parents out. So recently they had a safety fence put in right around the pool to stop her from wondering in. I don’t know where they got the thing but it looks exactly like the fences here http://www.orlandopoolfenceco.com/ and I think pools look way cleaner and nicer without them. But hey, it’s for my little sister and she’s worth it right? Well maybe sometimes she is.
I’m glad that we can rest at ease a little more now that the fence is put it, but I really enjoyed the pool more when it wasn’t in. We have a small diving board for the pool which I love and is what me and my friends have the most fun on and is now barricaded off when my sister is around. It’s pretty easy to take down when she’s inside but it still kind of sucks. The fence also gets in the way of our basketball or volleyball net if we put it up which again is a hassle but I keep telling myself that we have to make it work for the sake of my sister.
If anything serious happened with my sister and the pool my parents would never forgive themselves and would just ruin our lives. We won’t have to have it up forever and hopefully in a few years we will be able to take it down for good and we can all enjoy this California weather together and to its fullest. The moment my sister fell in the pool was something that I will never forget. I remember it perfectly and I remember thinking that I knew it was going to be alright but still just had a feeling of horror when I realized what happened. I’ll save that story for another day.
