There are things that happen in life that I can't tell my friends and family about. However, a person can't keep everything inside!

Random Things I Can't Tell Regular People

Friday, November 4

I can't think of the last time I drew my own bath. Last night is what made me think of it. I said, in a non-commital kind of way, I should have a bath tonight. Didn't my husband just take the hint in the most perfect way. Ten minutes later, the bathroom was a paradise. Lights low (so as not to see the dust bunnies in the corner), candles lit, soothing CD playing in the background, a steaming tub of relaxation waiting for me. He would come and visit while I soaked. We watched the candles flicker, the reflection in the ripples of the water. I shaved my legs with time consuming precision and felt my body and mind de-stress.

We're working on our fourth year of marriage. It's only getting better. I think I'm learning to read him better and he, most definitely, knows what I like and what I need. Maybe it's just that he knows that when I'm relaxed I'm not flipping out on him, forcing him into caregiver mode to pick up the pieces. Personally, I think he loves me.

Ahhhhh... that sounds so delightful and soothing. I think I just destressed reading it!

A long relaxing soak in a hot bath, letting all my muscles just totally relax, my eyes closed as I daydream, the bottom of my feet turning all "pruney" :-)

It's been a long time since I've enjoyed that Claire. Your words brought back memories. Now if only our bathtub was large enough for two.... I must check out hot tubs some day ;-)
