Do you know what I just did? I took a LONG, HOT SHOWER.
Yes, that's right. I said a shower.
And it was heaven on Earth. Really.
Maybe I should explain. My shower has been broken since before Christmas. Well, not the shower itself, actually just the little button at the bottom that allows you to switch from a bath to a shower and from a shower to a bath. We were only able to take baths. Before Christmas, I put it off in favor of, well, Christmas presents. Since Christmas, it's just been a matter of post-Christmas catch-up and finding time to schedule a visit from the plumber.
At last I have caught up somewhat on bills and frankly, I had had enough of sitting in a bathtub shivering while washing my hair. The wonderful man that is my dad's plumber came yesterday, evaluated the situation, and returned today with the necessary parts. My wonderful father supervised both visits. He made a mess of my bathroom, and the bill will be over $200, but I don't care. It was worth it.
After the day I've had, I took the longest, hottest shower I have taken in a long, long time. For the first few minutes, I didn't even think I was ever coming out. I was staying in until the hot water ran out. But after 20 or so minutes, I felt renewed and was ready to come out of Nirvana. It was as good as a great cup of coffee. It was better than a hug. It was as good as sex.
I am one happy camper. (cheesy grin)
Happiness is a hot shower on a cold, rotten day.
