Remember That Time….we went to the pool?

Be impressed. Be very impressed. This is my second post of the day. This one’s short, though, so if you really need your Emily fix (you are welcome to LOL with me over that one), click here.

Summer is almost over and for that I am grateful because I have not been able to get used to putting the baby to bed at 6:45 and then waiting around for an hour and a half for it to actually get dusky. Try it; it will mess with your brain. Summer is not my favorite and I prefer snow to sweat, but there is one thing about the summer that has always been fun, if not a little traumatizing:

The pool!

This week for Remember the Time, tell us your stories about going to a pool while it’s still hot enough to do so. Whether you busted your head on the diving board, your bikini top flipped up right when your friend’s older brother dove in, or you found a dead frog in the filter, Ashley and I know you have a story and we want you to share it. Check back at Zebra Garden or here on Thursday and Friday to link up with us. See you then!


  1. *Enter Mainah’ talk: We don’t have no pool up ‘ere in Maine! We have a communiny washin,’ ah, I mean, swimmin’ lake.*

    All kidding aside. I prefer a lake than a community pool. Chlorine hurts my eyes. When I was little my family and I would head down to the lake on a hot hot day.

    BTW, if you want to make a cool banner go to
    to make a free banner for your blog.

    1. Write about the lake! These prompts are super lax and by no means do you have to stick to them like glue ;D

      Thanks for the link! I will check it out! (If I didn’t know better, I’d think you read an email I wrote Ashley about not being fully satisfied with the banner since I revamped the blog.)

      1. Sight is a good theme, just the blog title on it sucks.
        Also, it would be a cool idea to use some of your pics for the featured picture for each blog post.

        1. I need to figure out how to do that.

          1. Oh, that’s easy! Go to your edit post page. Then scroll down, there should be a box at the very end that says
            “Set Featured Image” click on that. Then all your picks come up. Click on the pic, change whatever you want on it, and then click “Set Featured Image” at the lower right hand side.

            1. Thanks! I think I did it right! I love WordPress. It’s so easy to use.

              1. Yea, when you know what you’re doing! LOL Took me forever to figure all this stuff!

      2. Sweet. I’ll get started on it!!!!

        1. Oh, lovely! I see that you did your featured images! That looks a thousand times better. I always liked Sight.

          1. I did! I think it looks a lot better too. The front page looked nakers without pics.

            1. Just a little nakers, LOL.

  2. Lol I’m excited for this topic!! :)

    1. Yay! I’m excited to read your entry!

      1. Story posted and linked!! Cut it a wee bit close on the deadline this time, the week just got away from me! Can’t wait to hear what you think of my story!! It’s a unique one I think! :)

  3. I love reading your posts. They are funny, profound and endearing. Please keep them coming.

    1. Thank you, Karen! I will certainly keep them coming as I have yet to find a way to shut off my mind ;D

    1. Yay! I’m sorry I’ve been missing around your blog lately. Planning on binge read ISWTG tonight ;D

  4. Can we talk about the time we got a note from a doctor to get out of going to the pool? I don’t think I have a single goo memory from inside a swimming pool. I think I’ll make a list though just to get participation points.

    1. You certainly may. These prompts have a lot of wiggle room. If you have a good story that is even sorta kinda involving the topic, you’re good to go.

      1. Are you also open to suggestions? I wrote one thing and thought “Hmm this could be good for that game thing.” It’s about childhood birthdays, either your own or others.

        1. We are totally open to suggestions! Less work for us lol

  5. […] as an adult. One of the reasons I’ve loved writing about my past experiences this summer for Remember the Time is because I can reminisce on my childhood, which I am just now realizing was a really long time […]

  6. […] Maine in 1999, I am eleven years old, it’s summer, and swimming is my life. Every summer day, I could not wait to go the lake. On those really hot Maine days, my close family […]

Now you can hold the magic talking stick.
