The Relaxing Bath

I had a totally different blog post in mind for today but when I finally had time to sit down and write it last night, I thought I'd have a nice relaxing bath and get into my jammies first. Bath yes, relaxing no. First off Fred has to come in and try to lick all the water out of the tub and off of my arms if he can reach them.  Then hubby may as well come in and sit on the side of the tub to soak his feet.  "They're clean" he says.  Fine. So, while I'm not laying out in the tub relaxing ('cause hubby's feet are now at one end) we hear a big bang, a bunch of growling and as we look out the bathroom door the waste basket from our bedroom goes rolling by with Freddie right behind it. "Don't worry" I said, "It's empty.  Shortly after we can hear that it is apparently stuck some where and we see Freddie go trotting back past the bathroom.  About a minute later the waste basket from the computer room goes rolling by.  It too is empty.  This does prompt hubby to get his feet out of my bath and go check on Freddie  He dries his feet and carries his towel to take to the laundry.  On the way by the living room, he sees that Freddie is eating one of the said waste baskets.  I hear a raucous and he says he's got it. He puts it up where Freddie can't get it and walks back into the living room and I hear the not so pleasant words start all over again.  I ask "What now?" from my supposedly relaxing bath.  Hubby replies "Well s**t!" "I put my towel down to get the waste basket from Fred and when I turned around the little bu**er stole that!" So now in order to get Freddie to drop the towel I started making lots of splashing noise in the tub which he could not resist and came running.  I like to think he thought I was drowning and came running to my rescue.  Hey, it doesn't hurt to dream!
By now my nice relaxing bath is a bust so I give up, get out of the tub, get my jammies on, go into the living room to this.


Have a great weekend everyone!!

  1. Oh my dog! That was soooo funny. Ever thought of shutting the door? hahhaha. My MOM never shuts the door either. She would rather have me in there than whining on the other side of the door. Thank you for bringing some laughter and smiles to our evening.
    Blessings,

  2. LOL! I'm laughing at the image of the waste baskets rolling, followed by Freddie, seen through the door.
    I'm a shower girl, taking rarely baths. But when I do, at least one feline has a very important complaint to report, be the door closed or open. In both cases, the meows make it impossible to relax. :-)

  3. Looks like daddy and Freddie made peace. I don't know what it is about the "momma" being in the bathroom. I swear that if my husband isn't around and I try to take a shower, the hounds always get up to something. It's like having a toddler.

  4. Oh good grief that is just too funny and the picture at the end is just the cherry on top!! Who needs 2 legged kids when you can have the kind with 4!

  5. Hah, I'm with Goose...I'm trying to do something relaxing? Alone? In THIS house? The door is closed.


    (I confess, I spent some time trying to figure out which swear word "bu**er" was)

  6. Hilarious...from our distance. Freddie isn't letting a bung hip keep him from having fun.

    Roxy always licks the water off HER, too.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    We know what bu**er is.

  12. Hey Fred, Hey Gloria, Jet here. Hi Miss Janet.

    While we're sorry to hear of your bathus interuptus, the tale was really funny! Mom said she often thinks she's lost her mind when the end result is like your photo of Fred and hubby!

  15. It's so hilarious and I still can't stop laughing at it!

    It seems the men always know how to settle their disagreement and make peace within seconds.

  16. OK first, sorry about the Gloria Gotcha Day remark on yesterday's post. Where on earth did I read that? OK, anyway, about the bath. I can relate. Wednesday night I was exhausted so I turned in early. Soon after I was wakened by a dog pawing at the carpet... as in I'm trying to tear it up kinda pawing. That usually means upset tummy, so I get up and take Rumpy outside. He has a ball. Checks out everything. Even potties. But not one blade of grass eaten. Back inside and he's sound asleep. But me? No, I was up for a couple hours afterward. *sigh*

  17. Mom says she totally understands and that sometimes those men in the house are simply useless and the women end up doing everything. Bummer with your bath. PS I bet you would prefer Fred in the tub with you rather than a set of human feet ;)

  21. Hahaha. No such thing as relaxing. But it does sound like Freddie is feeling much better. Glad to hear it!

    PS so you have wastebaskets that are empty? (I am such a bad housekeeper. *hangs head* lol)

  22. We think you need to take a vacation just to rest in the tub! It may be the only way you get some quiet time.

  44. Lock the door ~ not the bathroom door ~ the door to the house. The next time they all go out lock the door. Get ear plugs and take that relaxing bath your deserve it
    Thanks for being a friend

  45. I'm reminded with your post why I don't take baths anymore! :-)

    I hope you're enjoying your weekend and all is well!!

  46. Sorry to hear that your relaxing bath was a bust, but at least it sounded like Freddie was having a good ole time! I usually hear my boys playing with their stuffed toy making lots of squeaky noises. When I hear the squeaking stop I know something has gone bad.

    Have a great weekend!

  47. Dog moms are not supposed to relax or really get a good nights sleep or have a peaceful dinner. But, would we have it any other way? :D
