The Cold Tub

Here is a picture of what you would see if you stood on my front porch and faced east.

And here is a picture of what you would see if you were standing on my back porch, hovering near the door. It's our sad, broken hot tub, now a home for wayward bunnies. One of my deepest desires on this earth is to make the hot tub go away. I hate it.

Hey! Looky there, our neighbors house on the other side of the fence. Hi Neighbors! Can you see me? I can see you. Hey... I like that stylin' robe, very nice. Are those new slippers? Tres chic. Me? Oh, no. These are the same flourescent green pj pants as always. What? Oh, yes. Absolutely. I'm wearing a sports bra this morning. Of course, it's my pleasure. You're welcome.

You hate the hot tub?
I think you need to throw a few more parties and find your appreciation for it again!

Princess - I think it's an eyesore. Besides it's broken and we can't afford to get it fixed - so if we had a party we'd mostly use it to set our drinks upon. Next spring I'm getting estimates to have it removed and expand our patio.

A broken hot tub is no good....and I don't like the look of them, either. We have an inground one - attached to a pool, which is slightly better, but you can only use it in the summer when the pool is open. Kinda stupid also.

I love your backyard - it is nice and big! A big patio would be awesome, let me know when it's ready - I'll bring the vino.

Yup. It snowed 6 inches last night at my parents. We're headed there this week. I am soaking in every last ray that I can before we make the trek up north for Christmas.

I would welcome a pool back there or any other structure (besides the hot tub) that would increase the ratio of bricks to grass that needs mowing and weeding.

The previous home owner, a portly bachelor in his 50's, used the tub all the time and the neighbors have specifically mentioned seeing him in his bathing costume traipsing about the yard in all seasons. Yech.

I'd also like a nice big privacy fence.

Jamie - why on earth are they not coming to visit YOU in the unsnowy warm sunshine? Well, either way, I wish you save and non-irritating travels.

i have no idea why, but looking at the pictures of your backyard reminds me of mine at home. like instant reminder. we don't have a hot tub. maybe it is just because i take a lot of pictures out the window as well?

Howdy again Player! - In the winter this is about as outdoorsy as I get, standing in the frame of the door to marvel and take pictures of the white stuff while it's still pretty.

If you don't have a hot tub, how will you end your episode of Blind Date?

Michigan looks a lot like Ohio. If you looked out my front and back door it would look much the same, sans one broken hot tub.

You and I are twins in your opinions on how you should treat your pets and the lip balm thing. I honestly have lip balms everywhere as well. Every coat pocket, every bag, on my desk at work... I can't live without them. I'm a Blistex gal myself but I do have Chapstick, generic Chapstick a Burt's Bees tinted Chapstick and some swanky Body Shop stuff too. It's a woman thing I think...

Psst...miss: when you get a free minute from arguing and unpacking and arguing about unpacking, could you please email me (my address is on my profile)? I'm interested in knowing if you'd like to write once a month for that other site I post on, Burt Reynolds' Mustache.

Or, if that's not exciting enough, then it's about something secretive.
