I Am a New Woman!


After ten days, our camping-at-home adventure has ended!

We have a stove and an oven.
We have a dryer.
We have heat (now that the 39-degree nights are over, of course).
We have full electricity.
We have hot water.

After ten days of washcloth-bathing, I took a hot shower yesterday. Steamy bliss filled the room (da-dum-bum!), I lathered and rinsed my hair like a boss, and all was right with the world. Afterward, I flung the glass shower door open, looked at Mr. TBS, and announced,

"I am a new woman!"

Truer words had never been spoken. Today is going to be a very good day. I hope your weekend was equally exhilarating.


UPDATE: I'm giggling to myself, because I realize that I could have also said "I'm a nude woman!" The fact that I find this so funny right now just proves that I'm deliriously tired. Hello, Monday!

Hahaha "nude." It gave me the giggles too! I am SO GLAD you finally got to shower again! Hot showers are one of my greatest joys in life.

Glad you survived... Oh my goodness, I'm not sure how you did it tho!:)

Kristen @ KV Confessions said...

Oh MAN! That is tough stuff! We've had our hot water off for a couple days and it was torture heating up pots of water on the stove just to wash my hair/face. I can't believe you lasted 10 days! You are obviously ready for the apocalypse.

Whitney said...

I'm seriously so impressed with you guys. I would not have been able to do it!

I totally giggled at the 'nude' thing too :)

Jasmine said...

I'm glad that you were both new AND nude, otherwise that really does defy the purpose of showering.

Glad things are back to normal now!

I do not think I would have been able to survive without heating and hot water for 10 days ... not cool. I would have had a massive sense of humour failure ...

Good on you for smiling through it:)

Life is all about the small luxuries, isn't it;)

Glad everything is back in working order over there. I don't know how you survived 10 days without heat and hot water in the winter. You are troopers!
