Your department stores out there don't have that whole 'cruisewear' thing going on this time of year? Don't people in your state go on cruises? :D
I think that starts more post-christmas, and I didn't want to spend that kind of money anyway.
Wow - they sure didn't have them here in California!
You're such a wonderful kind, thoughtful, self-sacrificing person to even consider helping out your in-laws like that!
Aren't I, though?! I don't know why she laughed and laughed at my generous offer!
I know. Some people just don't appreciate what lengths you are willing to go for their happiness and wellbeing.
Hot tubs can make people do very strange things.
Mostly they make me poach. And lo, it is good.
Start savin' now-they run between 1200-5000ish. You and Ferrett always seem to be able to get cool stuffs, so why should a hot tub be any different?
Of course, since Pam and I live over on W. 97th, we might just have more incentive to visit someday if you DO get one! ;)
(We keep wanting to come to your LJ-invite parties, it's just that the timing is usually off or something for us.)
We have size challenges with the back yard. But oh it is tempting.
Same here, although the previous owners had room for a pool. I'd say basement, but that's where the monster penis system is, right?
Although....watching tv from a hot tub. Talk about temptation!
No, the MPS is in the living room. Ferrett's office and my sewing are in the basement. I would be concerned about that much humidity in the house.
You are not the first daughter in law to bring this up to her!
But you got to the hot tub before me. While we were there, we had to make do with the huge swimming pool over at the main house.
Pool is closed. I would like to go over and work out at the club house, but I'm catching a cold - again.
Hot tub is niiiiiiiice.
While hot tubs are less of a thing over here, one thing I do occasionally dream of is having a bath I can fully stretch out in, without my knees poking above the water at all, just fully lying back.
At 6'4", that's hard to find. The one where I am now isn't bad, but it's still not there.
The Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC has tubs that big. When I got into it, I didn't want to go anywhere else.
Seriously. It's a good thing there are other motivations to come home to.
I love hot tubs that way, too. And the Target near my house has a ton of swimsuits, and has since October or so. I guess because people are doing the "escape the cold" vacationing and need them? So that's an idea, if you decide to steal the hot tub and run.
Somehow, I don't think it would have fit in the overhead compartment.
As is often said, "if there's a will, there's a way." Folding hot-tubs will be the craze of 2009!
