Water, water everywhere...

Except at our house.

There's nothing like the feeling of NO WATER. Ugh. Seriously.

One of our neighbors, in the process of moving out at 1 a.m. (oh please don't ask), knocked into the main water pipe thingy into our other neighbor's house and caused a gusher. The only way to fix something like that ... is ... to call the fire department and have them TURN OFF THE WATER MAIN AT THE STREET.

Oh, sorry. Was I shouting?

Yeah, well, we didn't have water until 4 p.m. today. I went to work armed (heh) with extra deodorant. I was thisclose to having to go to the gas station to pee and taking the kids with me to the gym to get a shower.

But now, we are once again flush.

Oh no! I so feel for you! You're lucky it was only for a day. Where we live the entire park is fed water from a single pump house. We've had that thing blow a gasket so many times and leave us with no water for days! I've never taken showers for granted since.
