I didn’t mention the bathtub.
The bathtub is great. I guess it was a couple of months ago that I started taking nightly baths. I’ve always taken a shower before, bed, but one night I was so tired that the prospect of standing up was just too much, so I filled up the bathtub instead. And it’s been a nightly bath instead ever since. Chris tries to tease me for being eco-unfriendly, but I point out that I probably use a lot less water in the tub than I would in my long shower, and he had to agree. It’s a really nice part of the day.. Relax, get clean, get warm… Usually there is a dog or two in the bathroom to keep me company and come lick water off my arm every few minutes.
If I’m REALLY into it, I can fill the water deep and turn the jets on. Yes, it’s a WHIRLPOOL bath. I don’t do this often, though, since the water has to be really deep and then I would feel guilty for using so much water. But, you know, sometimes the whirlpool bath is necessary… Although on those days, I usually just want to go to bed as soon as possible anyhow.
And the best part about le tub? It’s self-cleaning!
Hehe.. Not really. But Idalia does clean it regularly. And I do realize that having a nice, clean bathtub every night without ever having to clean it is just another way in which I am very lucky.Maaaaaaaaaaan
, am I ever tired. I had class last night until 8:30, then went to the Wal*Mart to pick up a bike for this charity thing at work, and tried to do some shopping at that hell-forsaken place… Didn’t get home until 10:30, didn’t go to bed until 2. I am WIPED OUT today. Tonight is a recharge kinda night.
My Chris had jury duty today. He got picked, but they settled the case so he got to go home really early today. I called him to say hi and he was taking a nap. I hung up with him and smiled, really happy for him – my baby was taking a nap! A nap! How uncharacteristic! And deserve-ed! I’m telling you, that boy is always running around, doing 10 things at a time.. For example, he can’t watch just watch the game – he has to run on the treadmill & lift weights at the same time. Seriously. I sing in the car; he takes care of bills and has a stack of other things to make sure he stays “productive” at stoplights and whatnot. It’s quite remarkable, actually. But I’m happy for him when he can just slow down a little and relax... and nap! And I’m happy we have this vacation coming up. So, so, so happy! He hasn't taken a full week in a couple of years! :) And we get to see SLOTHS! Hopefully!
