A Hot Tub in Crisis
So for those of you new to this blog we have had hot tub issues before. Though that one was many years ago this one almost rivals it, not because dh wasn't home, he was, but because of his reaction to his beloved hot tub. So I had finally acquiesced and agreed to sit in the hot tub, I'm not a fan and I refuse to sit in it when it's below 10 because if my hair gets wet it freezes, not my idea of a good time. So dh was ecstatic I agreed to go out it was finally warm enough, only to see dh vacantly stare/sob at the hot tub. At this point I grab my coat and go outside to see whats going on. As I peer into the hot tub with dh and see it's almost completely empty, I start laughing....maybe it's because I'm mean, maybe it's because I didn't want to go in it, most likely it's because I was happy dh was here when it broke this time. Seeing as it's 9 at night and dark dh killed the power to the hot tub just to save the motor if it hadn't burnt out already, and figured he would look at it the next day.
As we are going into the house my husband makes the *best* comment I have heard in a while "What have I done to deserve this?"
Now this comment seemed like overkill to me....sure he could have been complaining about a number of more legitimate "issues"(not sure he's going to be able to go on vacation with the whole family that was planned last year, the 800 snow storms we have had) anyone of these might have been a better use of the phrase, but right now he's far more bothered by the hot tub not working than anything. Though he did have the good gracious to say that his statement *might* have been overkill and a little extreme....ya think?
At any rate alls well that ends well. I had to work the next couple of days so dh had time to fix his baby...now he's back to bugging me to go in!
