Bath blogging

Every night, or whenever I have time, I try to take a lavender Epsom salt bath. I do this so often that sometimes I get concerned that I might be overdosing on magnesium (as absorbed through the skin), but then I google "Epsom salt bath overdose" and I'm pretty sure no one's ever died from it so I feel OK. I buy Epsom salt in 20-lb. bags, dump two cups into a warm bath, dropper in pure organic lavender oil, and soak and read for 20 or 30 minutes. It's the only thing I do all day that helps me sleep.

Some thoughts on-location in my lavender bath tonight:
— I want to make lunch for my team in a 7-quart slow cooker Black + Decker sent to my office, but I'm not sure what to make
— How will I get through all the emails I need to get through tomorrow?
— Should I buy a new point-and-shoot camera and maybe a taller tripod
— Can I justify going to bed at 10:30?
— Really I want to write a novel this weekend. I know that sounds ridiculous, but I feel like I can at least crank out a few chapters.
— I also really want to do Crest White Strips this weekend but I'm finding it hard to commit to two solid hours of no eating or drinking.
