Oh... and I bought a spa and cover. It cost me $4400, but it's brand new, under warranty, and, best of all, it's really well-suited for lots of people.
It's hard to tell from the picture, but it's really quite a deep spa and fairly good sized, with seats that are very countoured and lounge-o-licious, with a ton of jets for the price. Seats seven comfortably. I have to get the electricity switched over to 250 watts on that circuit, and get the thing delivered in the next week or so (probably by taking down a section of our back fence), but it'll be nice when we're done.
In either case, it had better be worth it, because I just bought the thing, dammit. I've wanted one forever, because I need a sanctuary from everything out there. This is mine.
Now, if only it came with a web browser...
