Power Showers

October 8, 2012

 

When I was single, there’s one place I “oddly” go to when I feel like the world’s weight is on my shoulders – the bathroom. I soak myself in for hours on end, a splash of aromatherapy oil, a scented candle and some soothing music would be my refuge. There, I hope that as the tears blend in with the water, so will my misery.

Now, three kids later, I do not have the luxury to confine myself alone like that. Rarely do I get my me-time and because now we only have a measly shower box where only the kids could fit in. :/ Gone were my emotive days.

Had I the means, I would definitely have a grand bathtub installed…but that would require a house too and then a lot – and lots of funds. ^_^

So for now, a renovation, a makeover to a more modern look would suffice. We could definitely use one of those power showers from Mira since ours are always getting kaputt after 4 months in use. It’s perhaps having installed lower end showers – to which I thought getting one that costs more than the usual would probably be less expensive when summed up.

 As I have taken refuge in the bathroom so many times, I believe that it’s still possible to enjoy it despite being small or having no tub at all. A little color here and there, some flowers and a bit of decoration, zen decoration to be exact is something I had planned on doing long ago. A glass sink will also work wonders compared to the boring white ceramic that we have now.

Consider too the energy and amount of water spent. A well-installed bath, shower, flush and faucets and all will most likely make you spend less on the bill than a leaky, ugly installation. You can also contribute a lot to conserve water.

Though these plans may not be doable in the near future, I am constantly reminding myself. It’s my me-time after all at the front line here.

  1. We just purchased a shower heater and now, we all have a nice bath always especially my kids who really enjoy it very much. We don’t have a tub but this will do for the time being.

  2. My kids are the weirdest… They don’t like showers that’s coming above them.. I think they still don’t know how to breathe while there’s water flowing on their face. That’s why when I’m giving them a bath it’s as if I’m giving a car wash. hahaha!!!

  3. Even when the kids are in school, mommy still can’t have a “decent” me-time no? Have so much responsibility in our hands, sometimes we neclect na rin the misery in our hearts, which is actually good 🙂

  4. I miss taking long baths too.. Unfortunately, we don’t have a bath tub in the house now, and I just have to make do with a shower. I hope in the future, when I already have my own house, I’ll get to have my own bath tub too. Anyway, nothing wrong with aiming for one naman 🙂

  5. I miss soaking for long hours in the bathtub. While I was in the States for work, the bathtub was my refuge after a long tiring day of work. That’s definitely in my must-have things when I finally get my own place.
