Great to Finally Have the Chance to Relax and Unwind for a Change

The sun was high and the weather was perfect for a dip. By 9am we trooped to the pool taking Jake with us who seemed to refuse to take his morning nap to join the elder brothers.
Everyone was in swim shorts and Jake looked cute in his orange hand-me-down pair.
It was warm but the pool water was cold. They didn’t go right in and I was amused to see Jake’s chin quiver for a few minutes when Jerry slowly lowered him on his floater. I thought he was ready to cry!
But that was just the initial shock. A few minutes later, he was just like the rest, unmindful of the cold water and enjoying the splash and the ripples caused by his bigger bros.
I spent about 10 minutes max with them before heading back to our home.

As the boys were downstairs enjoying their swim, I was engaged in the weirdest workout ever in my whole life.
For some reason, the water closet in our bathroom was clogged and threatened to spill out its (barf-worthy) contents on the pristine pink and white tiles any moment. I was there, oh yes, with sweat running down from every pore in my skin, unwillingly yet bravely working the plunger.
