Hot-Tubbing in the winter...

Wednesday, March 05, 2003
When I was a kid we had a pool and jacuzzi in our back yard. It was really awesome in the summer b/c we would go back and forth between the pool and the jacuzzi, but in the winter the pool was covered and off-limits, of course. The jacuzzi was still fair game, though. I can remember my father going out either in the early morning or late evening for 30 minutes or so to relax in the hot tub back then. I have been in the hot tub at my apartments late at night before, too. I haven't gone in the winter time, though, b/c unlike when I was at my parents' house at the apartment I would still have to brave the cold while soaking wet for a longer distance to get back into my apartment. Well, last night I got brave!!! After getting my hair cut, Michael and I met up with my parents and brother for dinner. After saying good-night to my parents, Michael thought a sit in the hot tub would be a good close to the evening. In the past few days we have been busy and running around until late at night...since this was an early night it was nice to have some time to sit and chill with one another. The hot tub was definitely relaxing! I could have fallen asleep. However, the run back inside wasn't as relaxing - it was COLD!!!!!! It was fun, though. We sat and talked for a long time as the lights in the apartments around us went off one by one when the tenants decided to call it a night!! Michael had to almost dare me into going b/c I thought it was too cold! I have to admit, though, I'm glad I don't back down from dares too often b/c I had one of the best nights sleep last night and am sure the hot tub time contributed to that!!!
