Yesterday I received my very own copy of Emotional Eating With Diabetes by Ginger Vieira. It was a long day and I felt as though I deserved a bath. Our home here in CA came with a jacuzzi tub and I have enjoyed it more than once. I had been using Bath and Body Works message oils in the tub. They are part of the Stress Relief line and left my skin soft and my mind clear, unfortunately I was out. Without considering the ramifications of using a bubble producing product in a bathtub with jets I poured in some bubble bath.
As I filled the tub there were a decent amount of bubbles and soft vanilla scent. When the water level was above the jets I turned on the jacuzzi motor and slid into a hot cozy bath with Emotional Eating with Diabetes in hand.
I wasn’t paying much attention to the bubble level as I was engrossed with Ginger’s excellent writing. However when bubbles began to reach the bottom pages of my book I was forced to take note.
I set my book aside and realized I may have learned the hard way not to use bubble producing products in a jacuzzi bath. By this time bubbles were going over the side of the tub. I pulled the drain and stood up covered in a thick lather of bubbles. Hopping from the tub I turned off the jets.
I thought maybe I could still enjoy a bath but what to do with all the bubbles? The tub water was gone but the tub was still FULL of bubbles. Thus I began to scoop. I filled both sinks with bubbles and then the entire floor of my shower 8 inches deep with bubbles – there were still more bubbles.
I swear it was like something out of an “I Love Lucy” episode. By the way I did all the scooping naked since there were no towels in the closet (censored in my crayon drawings of course). I didn’t get to take another bath. I was exhausted from washing mountains of bubbles down the sinks and wiping up massive amounts of bubbles from the carpeted floor. There were still bubbles in the shower this morning. Hoping Santa will take pity on me and fill my stocking with bottles of massage oils this year.
PS – I cannot draw well – I cannot draw on a computer at all. I did these embarrassing (both for the situation depicted and the lack of artistic ability) drawings in about 2 minutes while waiting for my soup to heat in microwave. I hope to learn to draw on the computer in 2013.
PSS – Not everything in life is about diabetes (ok I was reading a book about emotional eating and diabetes) – but it could have been any book.
