trading treats tuesday

I have Pain.

No.

Not them. They aren't my pain. Usually.

I have other kinds of pain. Sometimes.

But this was my favorite:

Still that is not quite what I'm referring to. When I have pain, real Pain with a capital P, that's when I really I love my Treat for today: my large deep bathtub.

Because sometimes when you have pain, there's nothing like a nice hot tub to soak in. I think it must be kind of like being back in the womb. Warm. Surrounded by liquid. Quiet -- especially when everyone is gone to school and work.

That, and being in that womb-like environment keeps me from acting like a really baby, ie: curling up in a fetal position and sucking my thumb till I feel better.

Hurray for tubs! Hurray for family! Hurray for bread! Boo for pain.




What's your treat today? Come on, you gotta have one that's better than mine.

I actually think yours is pretty darn good- I wouldn't mind one of those myself.

I don't even have to be in pain to appreciate a nice deep bathtub.

Strange- my "word: sounds out UNCLE- unchl-

I love your treat and am envious!! I don't even have a master bathroom (that WOULD be a treat).

I think my treat for today is lots of finished projects that were all fun to work on. :)

Hope you feel better soon!

I completely agree. Bathtubs are the best. I love the unique perspective of the family photo...besides the fact that your family is really photogenic. OCS looks gorgeous!

Bathtubs ROCK! My treat is staying warm and comfy curled up in my fuzzy blanket, watching old episodes of Bones. I love Booth!

I totally EMpathized with your pain..be thankful you didn't have to wear the "mesh panties" I would have preferred the tub..
My treat for Tuesday was being "out" for the hand-off of power.
