Tuesday’s and baths

For the 3rd Tuesday in a row, my facial at Evolve, AKA removing dead skin from the old woman’s face, has had to be rescheduled. Weather, salon flooding, weather. I feel like I’ve given myself permission to eat some dark chocolate at the end of the day and then I can’t get the wrapper off 🍫 so I have to wait until the next day to actually eat it. It has been sleeting all day and I keep checking the temperature but it is pretty much steady at 31 degrees. I’m trying to stay positive but I’m positive I can’t think of any advantage of freezing rain!

I wish I was one of those people who might take today and turn it around by soaking in a warm bubble bath with candles and a good book. But, I don’t like to take baths……for so many reasons. I’ve been struggling with lower back pain the last few days…he suggested I take a warm bath in our jetted tub to ease the discomfort. He suggested it 4 times…I said no, 3 times….finally I started running the water, a couple drops of essential oils, Epson salts and a small squeeze of bubble bath because I had no intentions of taking a normal bath to get clean because I don’t think that it is possible in a bath. Top of my list for why I don’t appreciate a bath. When I’ve been suckered into a nice warm bath before, we found the trick to the right amount of water to just below the front and back jets and then when the body is lowered into the tub, it is perfect. He has to start the timer for me because without the body displacing water, when the jets start there is a hell of a mess. Unfortunately with the roar of the tub and him retiring to the living room for his peace of mind, the bubbles started overtaking me. Think cartoon image…..when I yelled his name to help the sound of my voice was muffled into the bubble and no sound was released until the bubble popped. FINALLY he rescued me before it reached my nostrils and I held my tongue and did not say….SEE, THIS IS WHY I DIDNT WANT TO TAKE A BATH, DAMNIT!

Note to self. When using epson salts and bubble bath, a little dab’ll do ya!

Until next time….

  1. It does sound cartoon-like. I’m not a bath person either. Good reminder as to why.


  2. I have always wished I had a jetted tub. But you’re changing my mind. haha. Seriously tho, I think our hard water would just kill it anyway.
    We are having a 60’s degree bunch of days. You’d think that would make me happy. It doesn’t. It’s just grey and brown and mud mud mud. I’d rather see white snow. Because it’s not like it’s all of the sudden going to be spring. That won’t happen until mid to late April.

  3. Like Tracy said, amazing images. I’m not a bath person either.

    It is 65 and very dreary here. I am enjoying the 65 though. I have the doors open. Getting some damp but fresh air inside.

    I don’t know if you are a phone person but if you are ever having a bad day and want to talk, you could always call me and shoot the breeze. 🙂

  4. Thank you for the amazing images I was creating in my head!
    I take about one bath a year. Baths just aren’t a real thing.
