our new bathtub

Ready for it?

As excited as I am?

Here you go!!!


OK, so technically we do have a bath upstairs now, we are not allowed to use it. I KNOW! Trust me, I KNOW. It’s only the shell of a tub. We have to wait four to six weeks for the casing and the shower door to come in. We have to wait a few days to use even the shell of the tub, because the cement is still setting. Apparently, tub installation is done much differently here than in the states. Who knew? Not us, apparently. If I’d known, I sure as hell wouldn’t have planned to have a new tub/shower installed during the summer.

Yes, I know. Short, chubby women should not wear capris. You don’t have to lecture me. But it’s in the 80s, and muggy 80s at that. And I haven’t shaved my legs in over a week. And THAT, above, is the closest I’ve gotten to a bath since last Friday. AND I’ve given up wine for this week.

….only twenty-four hours to go…



  1. At least your son is nice and cool and clean!! I can’t imagine not being able to get cooled off and cleaned off for this long. I’m guessing those baths/showers will be SOOOOO appreciated once you get to do them again!
    On the bright side — it’s not 104 there like it is here in North Texas!! Of course, I have ac and a shower!!
    Have a great day! or night in your case!
