Thanks for all the comments! My husband will be home in 1/2 hour. It took 13 hours to fill the pool back up. The lake is gone (my property value just went back down - not lake side property anymore ;). He doesn't know a thing! And none of my wonderful blogger friend are going to tell on me - thank you.
I interviewed another pool company today. This one might be "the one." My husband has Thursday off. I made an appointment for us to go see the pool company showroom. We've got his relatives coming late April. We also throw a big pool party at our house every Memorial Day. I'd really like to have every thing done before that.
By the way, those ceramic pool "critters" are so expensive that we might not put them in. If we do, it might be the little crabs in three different colors. One for each of the grandkids that live here in Arizona. My husband informed me that he wants a new pool light - one that shines different colors. I'll have to see the price first.
