Thankful Thursday - My Tub

When we were house hunting 4 years ago, I thought I wanted a jacuzzi tub. I was a bit disappointed when the house we ended up loving had a claw foot tub. However, I started using the tub (which is made of plastic and not metal) and fell completely in love. I am sure if we had a jacuzzi tub I would have enjoyed it, but I no longer want to replace our tub.

I love the tub so much, that I admit I haven't used our shower (which is very lovely and huge) for probably 4 months. Rather than shower, I spend my evenings soaking in the tub. I am sure when summer comes, I will go back to using the shower, but as long as this winter continues, I am going my tub!

Add to make the bath even more perfect:)

Food Update:

I had a reaction to potato. My gut hurt and bloated right out over night after day 2. This  makes think I am likely going to react to all the nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes - which I reacted to as a child with hives, peppers, eggplant). I am trying not to feel devastated and look at the fact that I can eat potatoes but now I know how they make me feel.

On Saturday I get to try corn as food two. The other nightshades will be tried eventually. We haven't worked out the order past corn. I am very hopeful that I will get to keep corn because corn chips are one of the main foods I am missing!


  1. What a lovely tub!!!

    Sorry about the potato episode, hope the corn trial goes better!!

  2. I keep thinking I will take the time to relax and enjoy our jetted tub. But it hasn't happened in a few years. Good for you enjoying yours! Too bad about the potato. That is a basic food!



  3. Oh that is a fine looking tub made for soaking weary bones.
    OH no you cannot eat potatoes? How about rice?
    Hugs madi and mom

  4. THattub reminds me of my childhood days when I loved playing and soaking in the claw foot tub. We have one of those big jacuzzi tubs AND it is almost NEVER used, And what a bear it is to clean. No loss for you on that one.

    Hope the corn challenge goes better than the potatoes. No fun having a sore tummy.


    Hope the
