My favorite thing


Yesterday I put up my favorite indulgence. The Jacuzzi. I bought this over a year ago on the Home Shopping Network and I love it. The temp is up to 94 and I can go in once it reaches 104. This thing is very relaxing. After the kids are in bed me and the hubby can go in here for 20 minutes and just enjoy it. Of course when the kids are up they think it's a swimming pool. Last year when my parents were here my dad decided to give it a try. My dad had hurt his knee and was not really able to put weight on it, but we didn't consider this before we got into the jacuzzi. Once me, my mom, and my dad were in we enjoyed it for about half an hour and then it was time to get out. Getting out was easy except for dad. He couldn't get out because he could barely lift his leg over the side. Me and my mom decided to kind of pull him out where he ended up on his knees kind of hanging half way in and half way out. Me and mom went hysterical, big help we are. As we are still trying to figure all this out my 16 year old and her friend come around the back yard on their way home from school and upon hearing the laughter, me and mom again, they peak in. Immediately they hide their eyes. Seeing mom, grandma, and grandpa in your jacuzzi is not a pretty site to a 16 year old. It's even worse having your friend witness our Laurel and Hardy act while trying to get dad out. All ended well. Dad finally got out never to return. So much for relaxation.

I can just imagine the look on the 16 year old's face. And it cracks me up when I get the visual of your Laurel and Hardy act. But you're mighty lucky to have this.

You just had me bursting out laughing, as you painted the picture so well, and isn't that just the way it goes! lol Our best laid intentions.

How nice to be able to relax in the Jacuzzi yourself though. :)
