Hot Bath & Warm Mom

The funny above is the one my brother sent me that I couldn't post before.

I tried to take a hot bath last night before bed. It only served to remind me why I never take baths any more. I made the water as hot as I could stand it, and then a little bit hotter. I put in some old bath salts I still had around. I got in slowly because it was so hot, but once I was sitting down in the tub, it was actually pretty nice and I relaxed quickly. Oh, if only it had lasted. After a while, I start realizing that the part of me that's not in the water is sweating. Yes, the water was that hot. My other problem, and the real reason I don't take baths, was that I had been sitting with my legs straight and my feet at the end of the tub. Once I start relaxing, my legs bend... and Suzy starts sliding down the tub. There goes the relaxation.

Things didn't get better once I got out of the tub. The plub for my bathtub is crap, so I actually had to use my comb to pry it out so the water could drain. Then I propped my foot up on the side of the tub to dry off one of my legs... and my foot slipped and landed in the tub. Thankfully the only casualty was a corner of my towel. The real fun was when I realized just how hot I'd made the water. You have to realize, I'm typically warm by nature. I'm a hot-blooded kind of chica. It was like the hot water got my temperature all wound up and it wouldn't come back down! Twenty minutes after I got out of the tub I was still sweating! I think at that point I saw my relaxation running off into the night screaming.

Mom and I had our usual weekly Sunday afternoon chat today. I was a bit nervous as I hadn't heard from her since her long email earlier in the week. The day after that I had sent her a short email basically saying that I'd given it a lot of thought, prayer, debate, and discussion with Master, and this is what we're doing. I never got a reply. So I wasn't sure what today's conversation would be like. It was a relief when she didn't bring it up, so I sure as heck didn't either! I will say something for my mom. She is reasonable, logical, and intelligent. She'll push when she thinks she needs to, but she doesn't push too far. I know how much she loves me and cares about me and that she worries about her only daughter. But that's okay with me. :)

You know what would be great right now? Not a hot bath.

I have the opposite problem in baths-- my teeth are chattering before too long. ;-)
