It definitely took an hour longer than it should have to find our cabin in North Conway, New Hampshire. Thank you Theresa
My euphoria quickly came to a screeching halt when I went to use the bathroom. The toilet was topped with a heart stopping, eye popping wooden toilet seat. Let me explain. I am ALLERGIC to wooden toilet seats. Yes, this is an actual legitimate allergy. My allergy is so bad in fact that several years ago the back of both of my legs were worn completely raw. Yes, no top layers of skin. They itched SO badly and despite dozens of dermatology appointments, we could not figure out what was causing my allergic reaction. No light treatments, lotions, steroid shots or changes to body lotion, soap, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, clothing, etc alleviated my pain. Only after reaching the end of my rope and Googling (yes, I am "one of those") 'posterior leg rash and allergies' did I discover a very rare but real allergy to wooden toilet seats (both the natural wood and white painted seats). The images on Google mirrored the back of my legs. I changed our toilet seats that night and slowly my legs began to heal. Ta da...I was allergic to the toilet seats in my new home! Can you imagine?
I considered myself a "hoverer" before but I am the ultimate "squatter" now. These cheeks don't hit ANYTHING but my own seats...well unless I clean it and examine it to ensure it is uber clean AND 100% plastic. So, now you understand my dismay at discovering a wooden seat in my perfect cabin getaway. Although I immediately wanted to run to the closest Lowes and replace it, I braced myself for the days of hovering to come. And all of it was worth it. We had a blast with our organic dairy farm tour, Ben & Jerry's plant tour, Storyland, outlet shopping, beach. Yeah, we were busy for three days.
We are safely back home from our road trip. Pictures and blog posts to come. Right now, I'm headed to the bathroom, MY bathroom and I will SIT on my seat for a good 10 minutes. Just because I can.
