We have a new addition to our family. We picked up this little money sucker, I mean hot tub on Freecycle. (it is a website where people list things that they are wanting or offering. The only hitch is that it has to be free. You can not charge for it.) Someone had this in their backyard for a few years and wanted to get rid of it. My handy husband fixed the leak and now it holds water. It was jury-rigged a little in the electrical department. It is set up to plug into a regular outlet. We thought that would be awesome because we don't happen to have a 220 outlet currently. The kids were all excited to try it out. In this picture the water was a balmy 85 degrees. Nope, not warm enough for me yet. We waited a few more days and it was up to 94 degrees. We got in. It was still not warm enough for me. It was like a luke warm bathtub. I like really hot! We have since called electricians to see if we could get it hotter with different wiring. We probably can but it is going to cost a pretty little penny. Now we have to decide if this "free" hot tub is worth it. The good news is that if we decide that it isn't we can just put it back on freecycle. But then my husband won't have a project. :)
