A Secret Button?

31 Dec

We only have one bathroom in this house. All things considered, given the age of the place, we should be grateful that it is inside. But there seems to be some sort of alarm button hidden underneath.

The Squire can be in the living room reading a book, upstairs watching TV, or sound asleep, but he seems to sense the second I sit down. Last night, just as I made myself comfortable, I heard the recliner in the TV room creak as he got out of it. He’s been fighting a cold, and sleeping in the guest room for a week. Sunday night I woke up at 2 AM and crept downstairs. He followed me down a few minutes later.

I swear, our next house is going to have two bathrooms. Maybe three.

      We had three daughters! The Squire claimed he had to hang a mirror over the birdbath to shave. We female just wandered in and out as if it was a collage dorm, but he couldn’t do that.

    Ohh it is tough to have one bathroom. I am lucky to have my parents house having 2 bathrooms and still 5 of us fought over the use of it, till my parents changed property to one with 3 bathrooms. I now live on my own and I have 2 bathrooms. I like using either, depending on the mood but more bathrooms, means more cleaning work and so I need to wash both very often as I like fresh and clean bathrooms. LOL! Happy new year to you and Squire and I hope he gets over the cold soon. Stay safe!
