Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Final Stages of Pool Construction

So we finally reached the end of our pool construction. After they poured the deck we felt it was time to purchase our furniture. That was an adventure in and of itself. Trying to fit 4 lounge chairs and 2 chairs in the back of an SUV is near impossible! After Stephen and every nice man walking into the store tried to help maneuver the stuff into the car, we decided 2 trips might be the better route to take. We managed and finally got everything to the house and in the backyard. The next step was plaster, which totally changed our big hole into something that really started to look like a pool! We were very excited to see them drop the hose and begin filling our pool with water! Yes, you heard me correctly, they filled the pool with a hose! I was shocked. We went to bed that night and woke up the next morning with a pool full of water! =) We are going to have quite the water bill this month. haha After water came the landscaping. We bought 3 different palm trees (I never knew there were so many to choose from) and they began to re-sod our yard. Finally they got the chemicals straight in the pool and we were in pool business last weekend! They still have a few final touches, but we were definitely able to jump in and enjoy the pool over the hot weekend. It was wonderful!
