Pool Yet?

So hard to believe May 1 will be upon us. Time for our annual pool membership dues. Last year was the first year our pool opened up to non-residents and it wasn't a big deal. I knew a couple of the mom's and met some new ones. This year sounds like it's going to be a whole different ball game. Last year the YMCA pool had problems w/ it's filter and stuff and a lot of people left and joined other local pools. This year, one of the local pools is having some type of legal issues and now those folks don't have anywhere to go. I think there will be a lot of new faces at the pool this year and hopefully there will be some little girls for KJ to hang out with. There's always tons of little boys at the pool and kids T's age but there's not a whole lot of girls KJ's age. From what I've been hearing, some of the mom's that are planning to join the pool are very nice, some are total drama mamas. Whatever. I usually do my own thing at the pool. Now that KJ is older and doesn't require constant supervision, I usually fall asleep, catch up on my magazines and books and listen to my MP3 player (maybe I'll get an upgrade to an iPod this year for Mother's Day!).

Some, ok, most, of those drama mama's crack me up. They "swear" they hate the drama but man they are right in the thick of it and they talk about it constantly. My friend and I have a theory about it....these women have either missed out on a portion their own teenage / high school years or they are living vicariously thru their kids. And yup, I'll be the first one to admit I got sucked into it last year with some things that happened w/ T but I am so far removed from that now it's not even funny. Yes, I will always worry about my girls and will always have their best interests at heart (and God help anyone who messes with me and my family) but I no longer waste my time on trivial matters. I am a grown woman, not a 16-year old.
