Remember the saying, "Water, water, everywhere and not a drop to drink."? That's how I've been feeling lately. The city has been doing work on our pipes (ours as in the town) on random days for the past few months! IRRITATING!!!! I never know when they are going to work on them. Sometimes it's for 2-3 days at a time. Sometimes it's for an hour. I know when they are working...not by looking out my window but by looking at my water. It turns orangy-yellow and tastes disgusting. It cannot be used for anything except flushing the toilet (the water in there is already yucky, duh!)
Joel left for the office today and a few hours later I discovered the yucky water. Unable to shower, do laundry, wash dishes or even take a drink......I was frustrated. He called the water department for me because I was seething! Just notify me a day ahead of time...that's all I want. Oh yeah, they did that once.....then didn't show up. They said not to use the water from 8 am to midnight.....and didn't show up. IRRITATING!!!!
Our water is fine now. Josiah got his bath, I got to do dishes and wash clothes. There's a huge puddle at the end of our driveway that we'll have to content with once it freezes.....but at least we have water.
