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.
Those power showers are the way to go as high quality showers is always better than the regular ones.
Power showers offers a lot of benefits brother Franc.
I use to take bubble baths but haven’t done it in years.
Bubble baths are fun! what about dipping in the water filled with rose petals?
Invest on something that will benefit you. Having me time is important as it gives you an opportunity to think things over. Yes to shower powers!
Agree with having a me time. Sometimes, it’s all you need to freshen up the mind and recharge the body.
Havin a shower is a must in my house. Haha!
It’s a necessity indeed. A must for each and every home nowadays.
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.
Shower heater is a yay for me. I mean, it’s a must to really enjoy the shower time.
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!!!
Kids are always like that. They tend to panic whenever great amount of water covers their face.
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 🙂
Really true. Moms do have lots of things to do even when kids are not around.
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 🙂
I miss long baths too. I wish I can do such thing in the near future at our new home.
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.
It’s really great to soak in a bathtub for long hours. I love doing that kind of thing whenever time permits me.
I guess what’s important is to have a clean bathroom with everything you need in it. It doesn’t matter if it’s small.
Power showers is a good add on. But a nice clean shower and bath tub is enough to take a good bath.
