Splish Splash

Ever since we moved into this damn apartment we have had a shortage of hot water. I don’t understand how an apartment can run out of hot water. Shouldn’t it be like a dorm where the hot water is neverending? Whatever. We asked maintenance to come turn up our hot water heater a few months ago, and they did, but we still don’t have enough hot water to fill up an entire bathtub.

I love taking baths. Allison loves taking baths. Kristina loves taking hot showers. We are sick of taking lukewarm baths and showers.

Tonight, I had a little extra time on my hands before bathtime, so I filled up the largest pot I own with water and put it on the stove until it was boiling. I ran a bath with the water as hot as it would go until it was almost full and then I poured an entire pot of boiling water into it. It was lovely. It stayed so hot for so long that I had to take a cold shower and drink three huge glasses of ice water afterwards to cool down.

I am so resourceful.
