When we bought our house last August, one of the things we were so excited about was the fact that they were leaving a hot tub. It's only a two seater, but still, it's a hot tub. I mean seriously. The previous owners never filled it in the summer, so it wasn't filled when we moved in, and we had so much to do with moving in and the wedding and everything else that we just never got around to it.
In the past couple of weeks though, we've been talking about it and yesterday, even though it was like 20 degrees outside, we decided it was time to get that hot tub in working order. Well, not so easy when you have no clue what you are doing and no manual and etc. We accidentally broke off some plastic piece and it got sucked inside somewhere and now it's making a ton of noise, but at least it started heating up. It's not ready quite yet, but I'm getting excited that we're going to have a hot tub at our disposal.
I mean, what better after a hard workout than to slip in the hot tub for a nice soak, right? The only thing about the hot tub though, is that I know we're going to have friends who want to get in. And that means being in a swimsuit. In front of people.
I've finally figured out that I can do a swimsuit in front of my husband, because he loves me and apparently he even likes seeing me naked. Who knew?
But other people are a different story. I know I don't look good in a swimsuit. And I'm sure other people know that too. So why would we want to confirm it for them? Then again, I don't want to live my life in fear of what other people think about how I look. I've always been a big proponent of dressing right for your body type, meaning I don't think girls with big bellies should expose the midriff. Not that I would do that mind you, I of course have a tasteful tankini or one piece. But still, I'm no swimsuit model.
So I guess I'm sort of conflicted about what to think of it. Do you wear a swimsuit in front of your friends, even if you aren't completely comfortable with your body? Is anyone completely comfortable with their body? I don't know.
I'm thinking I'm just going to have to get over it. Or else hide the fact that the hot tub has been filled forever. We shall see.
