Yeah, you read that right. No, I’m not nasty, nor do I stink. The truth of the matter is I haven’t had the TIME to take a long hot bath since Petunia was born. Actually, it was before I was pregnant, since they warn pregnant woman to steer clear of hot baths, jacuzzis, etc. In fact it’s a rare day that I can even use the bathroom facilities by myself – unless she’s asleep.
Now do I like hot baths? Why yes, of course! Who doesn’t??? I remember having all of the scented bubble baths, the fizzy tablets, the blow-up neck pillow, the scented oils that made my tub a slippery hazard zone… Even as a kid, I just had to have Mr. Bubble! Even though sometimes it was whatever dishwashing liquid that was on hand. (No really, Joy made LOTS of bubbles – plus it got you squeeky clean.) I would just sit there and lounge until the water turned cold and my hands and feet looked like a wrinkled up prune. Those were the good old days… Now it’s all about the 5 minute hot shower. If I’m lucky, I can actually get a whole 10 minutes! You know, now that I think about it, the only person in the house that does get the long hot baths, bubbles and all, is Petunia! I think we’re going to have to make some changes in that department. LOL!
What about you? Do you like hot baths? Do you get to take them often?
