I don't want to even think about the malfunctioning kilns, missing files, supplies scattered and disorganized (where once there was order), faxes that would not transmit, shower door latch broken, and a whole lot more Monday- like incidents.
Any nurse or caretaker of the elderly will be familiar with people who won't take medicine unless you spend thirty minutes patiently watching and cajoling them... or folks who won't take a bath unless you have a hissey fit. The icing on this Monday-like day was two pedicures of 80-something feet.
So while I had the dremmel out, Gordon held three of the little dogs for their pedicures. Elvis, Mackie and Annie were pure angels One Westie bath and one Westie brush out, and I am all calm and focused again. The fur babies have that effect on me!
I wish I could order up an IN ROOM massage or acupuncture, an in-room manicure and pedicure and room service for a favorite meal for each and every one of you.
Would that not be a perfect tonic for the Mondays that punctuate our week?
A long soak in one of these bed and breakfast bathrooms would be wise therapy right about now. We are saving space in the renovated bathroom in Grandma's house for one of these corner spa tubs. It may be a few years before we can splurge on one, but it will be worth the wait!
Gordon and I have stayed in all these lovely places during our marriage. We both waited long enough to find each other get married, waiting to do the "romantic little B&B thing", that we justify the few extra dollars when we travel.
Actually, a B&B is not always more expensive than the cookie- cutter chain hotel rooms. Just clicking through our archived photos to find these pictures has been relaxing therapy!
