This may be TMI for some of you, so read further with caution! The chamber pot is returning to my house,......sort of. Yup, the old thunder mug, the slop jar, if you prefer. I used 'em and I emptied and cleaned them some in my day and thought I was done with them. Not so, it seems.
You see, I sleep upstairs and our only bathroom is downstairs. With my water pills, I have to climb the stairs more than I did in years past. That's not so bad, but it's just enough activity to wake me up to where it takes me an hour to get back to sleep. That's not good, considering that I have to get up at four o'clock through the week. So, not wanting to spend any money, I've decided to use an old drywall bucket as my chamber pot. It will be a couple extra minutes bother in the morning, but that's better than losing 2-3 hours of sleep at night. Of course, I'll still have to come down at least ince to take the dog out.
"All things old are new again!" I don't know who said that, but it fits in with Solomon's teachings.
